The guys at Palmer started working on this product because they love iPhones, design and music. We're sold because we love all of those things too.

Transparent Speaker

Dropping a large speaker into your home is a decision few make any more. Why buy a big boxy unit when there are minuscule ones that pump out just as delicious of a sound? We would make an exception, however, if the speaker was so good looking that it became a piece of art for our pad. Such is the case with the Transparent ... continue reading

Quirky Helix Speakers

We've been known to belt out a little Michael Jackson in the shower from time to time. When you're in the shower, you're a rockstar. You might as well be in front of Madison Square Garden. But there's also neighbors, permanent roommates and other residents to consider. You need a bit of a buffer and that's where actual ... continue reading

NuForce Bluetooth 4.0 Speakers

We can tell the difference between nice, warm vinyl and the tinny output of the same track from an iPhone, but we're by no means audiophiles in the classical sense of the word. When we heard about these NuForce Bluetooth 4.0 speakers it was a little bit of a shock to us because we didn't even know there was a Bluetooth ... continue reading

Boomphones Boombox Headphones

There's always that one person on the plane, train or automobile that feels like it's necessary to take their new Carly Rae Jepsen to volume level 11 and let everyone around them enjoy it too. The problem with that, though, is that it's never really loud enough to actually enjoy. If you're going to go the route of ... continue reading
