imageFirst International Digital has announced the MusiCase, a new iPod accessory that combines two powered stereo speakers with a carrying case. The MusiCase features a nylon exterior, two inside mesh pockets to hold an iPod and/or an iPod shuffle, and two internal speakers (1.8” and 1.1”) powered by a built-in three-watt amplifier. It also features a belt loop and a detachable carrying strap. The $19.99 device runs off of two AA batteries, which provide approximately 15 hours of music. Though targeted at iPod users, the device is compatible with any MP3 player.

Looks like it supports the Mini, or any other player for that matter, cuz it just uses a regular headphone plug…

Could they have paid any less attention to design? it’s a very practical accessory, but it’s also _extremely_ ugly and probably a bit bulkier than it needs to be. but great for travelling I’m sure.

There has been a product like this around for a while… the OutLoud speakers made by TDK. I have the stereo version of these and each flat-speaker is the size of a CD (I think) so I think the bass response of these “MusiCase” speakers won’t be as good.

with enough jostling, you may end up with a scratched or even a cracked ipod when the case is closed, especially if you have the wider ipods such as the 40gb and 60gb photos.
