Better sound from an iPhone/iPad. SRS Labs iWow 3D.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, May 27, 2011

      Better sound from an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Whether you’re watching movies or listening to music on an Apple device, sound quality often takes a back seat.    The folks at SRS Labs aim to change that with a little gadget called the iWow 3D.   It’s a dongle, says Michael Farino of SRS, that’s plugged in between your device…and your earphones, speakers or even your car music system….

When you plug this thing in, you don’t really notice what you’re missing until you hear it.  It basically improves the overall bass response of any headphones or speakers that you plug into it, improves the overall mid and high frequency clarity and detail.  It also improves the overall 3D special characteristics of the audio. It expands it to sound like it’s coming from a much broader, wider sound field.”

   The sound is impressive.  Pricing for the iWow 3D starts at about fifty dollars.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
