Targus has introduced its SoundUP high definition sound enhancer. SoundUP is an in-line audio booster that uses a Phantom Technologies circuit which “enhances sound quality up to 20-25%,” helping to reveal instruments and voices typically lost during compression. “iPods and MP3 Players represent one of the fastest-growing segments of the consumer electronics industry today,” stated Al Giazzon, vice president of marketing at Targus. “SoundUP delivers amazing sound quality giving consumers the ultimate portable music experience.” Features include a built-in powered audio-out splitter, in-line volume control, and power provided by one AAA battery. The Targus SoundUP is available now and sells for $40.

For the price this is not a bad option, but then again you get what you pay for. I was lucky enough to buy The “Royal” Amp from penguinamp.com from a friend that needed the cash. Not only does it turn heads and get alot of questions it also makes my in ear headphones (V-Moda Vibe) sound great. Hopefully iLounge can get one and do a review.

I smell viral marketing.

Geee, 40 bucks worth of added clutter when you could just rip music at a higher bitrate… also, I love statements about sound quality in percent.

“The “Royal” Amp from penguinamp.com…”

Ok, that’s cool but I’m sure I would try to take it on an airplane…

dmunz, do try, and keep trying. Do not fall to anticipatory obedience. Be able to show that its harmless and be fine. Do not live in fear.
