Top Ten Reviews

Here at IPEVO, we’ve always loved toptenreviews.com. You can find an objective and thorough “top ten” of just about anything, from kids chemistry sets to payroll software. We’ve relied on this site to provide sound advice for some of the choices we’ve made as a business, as a matter of fact. And that’s why we’re particularly excited to see that Tubular Wireless Speakers have made the Top Ten list for wireless computer speakers!

Read the review for yourself, but here are some highlights:

IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers

“The IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers, another great two-way speaker system found in our wireless computer speakers review, will become the next gadget you can’t live without.”

“The clever interlock design of the IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers is one of their best features. They will work connected or separately, and since they interlock, they’re a breeze to tote in your backpack, purse and even a standard-sized car cup holder.”

“The IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers compact size can’t be beat. They’re 2.9 inches tall, 5.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep. At only 9.5 ounces, these wireless speakers are the lightest in our review.”

“The IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers deliver portable stereo sound that may surprise you. And they’re a breeze to use.”

“From their memorable design that enables an unlimited array of uses to their surprisingly good sound, the IPEVO Tubular Wireless Speakers are a wise choice for audiophiles with Bluetooth devices who are on the hunt for the best wireless speakers to meet their needs.”

Wow, I really don’t think we could have said it better ourselves. And it’s interesting to see Tubular is the lightest set of speakers in the top ten, which is appropriate, because Tubular was designed to give you music that goes where you do. Anyway, visit toptenreviews.com for great reviews, and visit IPEVO.com for great products. Tubular Wireless Speakers are on sale at 25% off for only $59.13. That’s not a lot of coin for a lot of sound… in a little package.

iPad and Tubular Wireless Speakers – A Match Made in Heaven #5


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, IPEVO, P2V, Tubular) by ipevoblog on 2010-05-21

Here’s the fifth and final installment in our blog series about how Tubular Wireless Speakers and iPad make beautiful music together. Literally.

This entry takes some inspiration from the TechEd convention. Remember TechEd? IPEVO recently had the chance to show educators the Point 2 View USB Camera, and its ability to project documents, math equations, and demonstrations for lessons.

At the convention, there was a ton of buzz about the iPad as well. Because iPad is very portable, and an excellent digital book reader, educators were excited about the notion of leaving their satchel full of heavy textbooks at home, in favor of the very slim iPad loaded with digital books.

The iPad also promises interactivity and media-rich learning, including presentations through the Keynote application. And with a VGA adapter, you can hook the iPad up to a projector and play presentations, videos, photos, and more for a classroom or meeting.

Well, that got our gears turning: you have a lightweight, multimedia device for presenting to a classroom or business meeting. But what about the sound embedded in presentations, or the soundtrack for videos, or the music intended for a photo slideshow? Tubular Wireless Speakers to the rescue!

Fill a (small) bag with iPad, Tubular, and the Point 2 View camera, and you have a full mobile teaching system. We added it up, and all three devices in total weigh less than four pounds! Now that’s portable.

With this teaching trio, you can enter any classroom with a projector and do just about anything. And because Tubular is wireless, you can separate them from iPad to best position the speakers for your students, so they can enjoy stereo sound that’s loud enough for everyone to hear. The tech geek in me is just salivating at all the possibilities.

Our little series has come to an end, but we definitely have not exhausted all the things you can do with Tubular Wireless Speakers and iPad. If we sparked any ideas for your own use of Tubular, or you have any ideas to share, we’d love to hear from you. Thanks, and remember: live out loud!

iPad and Tubular Wireless Speakers – A Match Made in Heaven #3


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, IPEVO, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2010-04-29

This is the third installment of our blog series about all the possibilities of pairing Apple’s iPad with IPEVO’s Tubular Wireless Speakers.

Spring is in the air, and summer is nearly upon us. It’s time to get outside and enjoy Mother Nature, even for us bookworms. Because if you like to spend your free time with your nose buried in a book, you might as well do it in a hammock sipping a lemonade, or on the porch soaking up the sun, right?

Well, a lot of people are excited about iPad and its potential to be a great digital book reader. Carry a small library in a half-inch thick, pound-and-a-half little miracle, which can display all your books for easy reading. It’s the kind of portability that’s perfect for a trip to the beach or the park.

So, you’re outdoors, enjoying a quick summer read on your iPad. There’s a gentle breeze, the sun is shining, and it’s just the right temperature. And perhaps, on a very special long weekend, you have taken a trip up the coast, or visited wine country, or driven to a national park for a camping trip, or any of the wonderful activities possible this time of year. What’s the one thing missing from your perfect day? A little musical accompaniment, of course. Whether it’s light classical music, a little smooth jazz, or the latest pop tunes, it’s sometimes fun to give your outdoor excursion a soundtrack.

And that’s where Tubular Wireless Speakers come in. These ultra-compact speakers are the perfect portable companion for your iPad. You’ll be traveling extremely light, but you’ll still be able to enjoy great stereo sound to bring another kind of library—your iTunes library—to life. Tubular will communicate wirelessly with your iPad via Bluetooth, and before you know it, you’re enjoying songs from a favorite playlist right along with your e-book. Plus, because they’re wireless, you can set the speakers up well away from your iPad, to avoid distraction and provide just that right amount of ambient music.

So get out there and enjoy the Great Outdoors, book lovers. And don’t forget the music, with the ipad and tubular!

Tubular Wireless Speakers in a Car?


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, IPEVO, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2010-02-07

It’s been a couple of weeks since our Tubular Wireless Speakers launch. One question in particular has come up from people we’ve introduced our speakers to, a question which left us initially scratching our heads: can Tubular be used in the car?

A car? Sounds like a good idea, except for the fact that cars sorta have speakers of their own. But, as we discovered, there are in fact a few reasons this makes sense.

Then it dawned on us… just consider. You’ve got your smartphone—maybe your trusty iPhone—and you’ve got all your music stored on it. You want to jam to your own songs on the road. One, your stereo might not be outfitted with an auxiliary iPod connector. That’s one reason for taking Tubular along.

Two, it’s kind of a hassle to plug in an iPhone even if you do have that connector. Plus, I don’t know about you, but usually I forget to take the darn iPhone with me once I leave the car when it’s plugged in like that. If you’ve got Tubular Wireless Speakers—with all the wonders of Bluetooth—you can leave your iPhone in your pocket and still jam to your music library by playing through Tubular.

Three, say you’re a classic car enthusiast, and you don’t want to mess with the original period radio. In that case, listening to tunes on Tubular is also the way to go. Keep your four-wheeled beauty in the past, but enjoy your favorite tunes in the present.

There’s one more reason why Tubular Wireless Speakers make sense in the car. Frequent business travelers who go from rental car to rental car don’t have to search for channels or figure out an unfamiliar (and usually minimal) car radio. Just carry our favorite musical tube around, and you’ve got an easy way to transport and enjoy your music out loud.

Meanwhile, the speaker can sit in the most perfect of places: the cup holder. This was clearly meant to be. It’s fate. It’s destiny.

On the topic of cup holders, one smart person even came up with yet another fun place for Tubular Wireless Speakers: the cup holder of a stroller when you’re on your daily walk or running errands with Baby. How genius is that? Very.

Where will you use Tubular Wireless Speakers? We don’t know, but it’ll be fun to find out.

Image and Sound – the Perfect Marriage, IPEVO-Style


Filed Under (Document Cameras in Education, APPLICATION, All Applications, IPEVO, P2V Presenters, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2010-02-04

Do you know the only thing cooler than using an IPEVO product? Using two. So I happen to love our stuff. Can you blame me?

A friend here mentioned this scenario the other day. What if you want to demonstrate an iPhone? Say it’s a web chat. You could be a tech blogger, you could be sharing a neat iPhone app with a friend, the list goes on. Well, two things should go in to the demonstration: image, and sound.

As for image… hmm… the ideal image-capture device should have some sort of macro mode so it can catch all the fine details and little text of the iPhone screen. And, it should probably have a good amount of flexibility as far as how you could position it. Point 2 View USB CameraAfter all, during the demonstration, you want to hold and operate the iPhone like you would normally hold it. So… hmm, this is a tough one. You need the ability to capture real-time images up close with good resolution, and you need a device that can be positioned just where you want it.

Oh yeah! That’s a perfect description if IPEVO’s Point 2 View USB Camera! It has a great macro mode, and a unique posable stand. Image is taken care of.

Now, let’s figure out sound. Hmm, earphones aren’t exactly going to cut it, are they? You need to blast that sound out into the open, whether it’s music or game sound effects or most anything an app can generate. What are the alternatives? A docking station? You can’t use that, you need the iPhone in your hands. And it would be nice to take advantage of the iPhone’s Bluetooth capability, wouldn’t it? No wires to get in the way, total freedom to do what you need to do.

Tubular Wireless SpeakersDing ding! IPEVO’s Tubular Wireless Speakers are the ideal audio solution. Cute, Bluetooth capable, easy to pair, good stereo sound. Sounds like you’ve got a sleek multimedia presentation going on, courtesy of two of IPEVO’s newest gadgets. Now get out there and share that app with the world!


Tubular—IPEVO Adds a Rock Star to Its Lineup


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, PRODUCT, Tubular) by ipevoblog on 2009-12-30

First and foremost: everybody at IPEVO hopes you had a fantastic holiday, and we wish you the best of success in 2010!

IPEVO has a great new product to set the New Year off right. Tubular Wireless Speakers are coming, and it’s going to be big! I managed to get a sneak peak of Tubular from our development team, and I’m super-excited that IPEVO is starting the New Year off with a bang.

Tubular solves a couple problems a lot of us have with music player speakers. Most of these speakers are just plain too big. These “docking stations” usually just end up as permanent decorations, taking up a lot of space on your dresser or nightstand. We wanted you to be able to easily take our speakers on the go.

The other problem with docking stations is that they take the music player out of your hands! This is especially uncool if your player is a smartphone or another device you could be multitasking with.

Well, good design identifies existing problems and then offers solutions, and that’s what we think we’ve achieved with Tubular. What is Tubular? And why the funny name? Well, “tubular” is surf lingo, dude. It refers to riding in the “barrel” of the wave. And like a “tasty wave,” IPEVO’s Tubular features a cylinder design. But Tubular is not just about shape: any surfer will tell you “tubular” also means “cool” or “awesome.” And the most tubular part about Tubular is…!

Sorry, but I can’t reveal all the details yet! That wouldn’t be very fun. I know the suspense is unbearable, but you’ll have to wait until the next preview for more about Tubular.

For now, have a safe and happy New Year, and thanks for reading!
