Add some classy design, DIY flair and a damn cool pair of bookshelf speakers to your home with Cinder Speakers. Designed by Daniel Ballou (who was also responsible for those desktop ceramic cargo containers) to leverage the low resonance and vibration reducing properties of concrete without having to worry about its weight and lack of portability, Cinder Speakers turn any cinder blocks into speakers worthy of display. The system uses a front and rear fascia that’s pre-wired, pre-assembled and sandwiches your cinder blocks inside with bolts. The front of the speaker includes a 5” driver, tweeter, crossover and input jack while the back seals the enclosure. Cinder Speakers are in the fine-tuning stage, so you still have some time to find some free cinder blocks.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
