Ion Clipster

LAS VEGAS–The venerable boom box may be on the cusp of revival, thanks to a range of small, cheap, wearable speakers on display at CES.

Here at the CES Unveiled show we took a look at the ion Clipster, an ultraportable wireless speaker with a novel carabiner design. The carabiner clips to a belt loop or backpack and will broadcast sound in all directions, to the delight (or chagrin) of all those within earshot.

The Clipster is the brainchild of inMusic, a Rhode Island company showing off a range of Bluetooth-powered audio products here at CES. The $29 speaker connects to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth and blasts sounds in all directions. Even on a busy show floor, the Clipster could still be heard well above the din — even if it did sound a bit tinny at louder levels.

The device is scheduled for release in the spring.

Does the Clipster represent a whole new way to annoy people on the subway, we asked. “Or the school bus,” a rep told us. Can’t wait.
