Gear 4’s Angry Birds speaker docks are flappin’ awesome

Gear 4 are known for their iPhone speaker docks and related audio gear as well as their awesome Angry Birds cases. So it was only a matter of time before they put two and two together and came up with some Angry Bird speaker docks.

Three colourful characters from the Angry Birds franchise have been turned into docks; the red cardinal one, compatible with any device with a 3.5mm jack, the black bomb bird which is designed for iPhones, iPods and iPads, and a green pig in a helmet, with is compatible with iPhones and iPods.

The red one we particularly like, not just because it’s compatible with virtually any music-playing device, but because it’s the angriest-looking one. Phones, tablets and MP3 players and the like sit in a little plastic cradle and connect to the big red bird with a 3.5mm lead.

The black bird features a similar-looking cradle, but one that features the Apple 30-in connection for iPhones, iPads and the like to plug in. The green pig one has the 30-pin connection built into it’s helmet. While we suppose you could modify this to stick and iPad in, it would end up being really top heavy, not to mention looking a bit silly.

The red Gear 4 Angry Bird speaker is available to buy now from Gear 4’s site and costs £49.99. The black bomb bird and the green pig both cost £69.99 a piece. So not quite as cheep at the universal red bird.

We’d like to see some more Angry Bird speakers from Gear 4; how about a white one which has a detachable mini subwoofer shaped like an egg? Or a blue speaker that frags into three smaller ones when you throw it at a wall.

Flap on over to Gear 4’s site to hand over your internet coins.
