Hercules is renowned as the market leader and a major pioneer for digital DJ controllers. And yes, this is the same Hercules you may remember as the graphics card manufacturer.

The Hercules XPS 2.0 60 DJ club speakers provide and ample 30 watts of audio power and definitely pack plenty of sound.

The bass more than good, but we wouldn’t rate it as great if you are after a really exaggerated low end.

The trendy and innovative speakers are constructed with a metal grille to protect the main driver. For an added convenience, all the connectivity features and controls such as volume and tone adjustments are provided on the speaker’s front face for easy access.

The iPhone Wireless Speaker is a wireless audio system that enables you to keep the iPhone handy as a remote control that transmits music to the wireless speaker and unlike other audio systems or devices which require the iPhone to remain docked, the wireless speaker does not. It uses a transmitter that is plugged into the iPhone’s 30 pin port and it pairs up with the speaker so it can be controlled at a distance of up to 50 feet away.
The iPhone Wireless Speaker does not employ a Bluetooth transmitter. Typically, a Bluetooth wireless system delivers compressed, muddy sound and is prone to ISM radio band interference. Instead, the iPhone Wireless Speaker transmitter delivers music over the 2.4GHz radio frequency band giving a full 44.1 Khz of bandwidth to provide compact disc quality audio for the 32 watt speaker. The transmitter can stream audio wirelessly to up to three separate speakers.
And the iPhone that it is paired with can control the equalizer, pause, play, song change and volume setting. Other than that, the speakers RCA input has a connection for an audio CD player and other device similar to it and the output has direct connection to additional wired speakers.
The iPhone wireless speaker is compatible with the iPhone 3, 1st and 2nd generation iPod Touch, iPad and iPad 2. The speaker plugs into an AC adaptor. The dimensions for the wireless speakers are 8 inches in height, 16 inches in width and 4 ½ inches in depth. The total weight is about 6 pounds and retail price for this item is at around $199.95.
