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.

Tubular Wireless Speakers Make All the Right Moves

I just caught up with our friend Jenni Hong. She’s busy busy busy, but graciously took the time out of her schedule to chat about her use of our favorite wireless speakers, Tubular.

Jenni is the artistic director and choreographer of Jenni Hong Dance, based in New York City. I don’t know much about dance – frankly I’m a hazard out there on the dance floor, and I step on a lot of toes – so it was great to learn about a gifted performer pursuing her craft. In mid-February, Jenni and her dance company enjoyed a week-long residency at historic Kirkland Farm, located in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. This place has a rich history as an artist’s haven dating back to the 1930s; definitely check out the link, it’s pretty interesting, and awfully scenic!

Anywho, the company rehearsed and developed new routines in the various cool places on the farm, getting creative by taking advantage of the “found” spaces.

Like I said, I don’t know much about dance, but I do know it’s best to do it to music. And how are performance artists like Jenni Hong and her company going to blast out the tunes in a convenient and ultra-portable way, so as not to hinder the creative process? Enter Tubular Wireless Speakers.

“The portability of Tubular was fantastic when we were doing site-specific work,” Jenni told us, “whether it was dancing around in a random staircase, a horse barn, a large bath tub, or other places, because we could just carry it wherever we go, indoors or outdoors.”

Jenni continued: “The ability to control songs played on Tubular with my iPhone was also very helpful when we were working in various corners of the big house we were in. We could just leave Tubular in one place and deal with volume and switching tracks from wherever we were.”

Jenni pretty much summed it all up. Tubular is compact and wireless, and that makes it very portable. Plus, it’s Bluetooth-capable, and that means you can use your Bluetooth music player as your remote control. When you want to enjoy music with friends (or in Jenni’s case, enjoy music AND do work), and you don’t want a lot of hassle, Tubular Wireless Speakers are your answer. Thanks a lot, Jenni, and best of luck to Jenni Hong Dance!

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!


Share the Music (In More Ways Than One) with Tubular


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, PRODUCT, Web Conferencing) by ipevoblog on 2010-01-20

We’ve told you about IPEVO‘s newest product, Tubular Wireless Speakers, and today a friend on the tech team just told me about another cool feature, so I just had to pass it along.

It involves Tubular’s surprisingly good “memory.” Tubular can in fact remember multiple music players it has been paired with, meaning that you can share Tubular with your friends (or among several of your own Bluetooth devices) and you don’t have to always enter pairing mode. To share Tubular among multiple devices after an initial pairing, just turn on Tubular and then choose “Pair” on your Bluetooth music player of choice.

Once you think about it, this is a really nice touch. There are some super-smart people working on the design team, for sure! Naturally, everybody has different playlists and songs on their players, and Tubular makes it easy to switch between players so you can rock out to everybody’s tunes.

So don’t hog the speakers, dude! That’s why we say you can share the music in more ways than one. Play your music out loud, and then share Tubular with a friend, so that everyone’s tunes can be enjoyed. That’s a lot of music goodness packed into a little tube.

Tubular Wireless Speakers are Now Available!


Filed Under (All Products, All Applications, PRODUCT) by ipevoblog on 2010-01-04

In our last entry, we gave you a sneak peek of our newest product, Tubular Wireless Speakers. Well, Tubular has launched, and has just been made available through the IPEVO Store! So, now is a good time to give you the rest of the picture about these very cool speakers.

We told you Tubular is, well, tube-shaped. Left and right circular speakers come locked together in a single cylinder. This makes it hard to lose one or the other—hey, I’ve been there—and it also makes it very portable. Take it on the road: it’s a little more sophisticated (and a lot better audio-wise) than sharing a single set of earphones between two people—I’ve been there too.

Going “under the hood” a little bit, I think you’ll be pleased to know that Tubular is Bluetooth capable. That means you can control your speakers wirelessly using your very own music player as the remote control. Yes! No more docking stations hogging your player.

Bluetooth convenience also means that Tubular is compatible with any Bluetooth device—that includes the latest generation of iPod Touch and your smartphone, for two examples. That’s also where docking station speakers fall short of Tubular—some are designed for one model of iPod, and that’s it. Tubular gives you flexibility and freedom, dude. Pick your favorite device and go.

There are two cords—a little one connecting the speakers for two-way stereo sound, and the USB recharging cord—and they aren’t a bummer. Each is smartly designed to coil around a rubber spool on the bottom of each speaker so it’s all one compact, cylindrical piece of affordable audio excellence.

And yes, I did mention recharging. No battery headaches. Plug in the speakers to any USB port for just a couple of hours and they’re ready to musically move you for 6 to 8 hours.

Volume buttons and easy one-touch Bluetooth pairing are just the icing on the cake. But check Tubular out for yourself. Learn more by visiting our product page. We promise you’ll like these little beauties, at home or wherever you want a little music to share out loud.

And there is one more reason to consider these speakers: right now the IPEVO Store is offering a Buy One, Get One 50% Off deal for Tubular! It’s only for a limited time, so visit right away!
