Love ’em or hate ’em the iPod earbuds are an inconic design that will be with us for a long time. If you love ’em you’re in luck as you can now get them in desktop speaker size, courtesy of the 500XL Desktop speakers. Designed to look like oversized versions of the iPod earbuds, the 500XL Desktop speakers can be hooked up to your PC (or Mac, of course) or any PMP, CD player etc with a 3.5mm jack.
The 500XL Desktop speakers are powered by a USB DC power cable, have a built-in amp and can be used with three AAA batteries rather than the power cable if need be. Even though they are 500 times the size of the standard iPod earbud headphones, luckily they are not 500 times the price and you can get your hands on the 500XL DESKTOP SPEAKERS
for $40 from Amazon.
This got us thinking, what other gadgets would remain fully functional if they were 500 times their original size? Answers in the comments please….
