There isn’t what we’d call a lack of MP3 player speakers on the market but here are two new iPod speaker packs for you from Kensington. The first is a sleek-looking dock with XT's SurfaceSound flat panel loudspeakers. It comes dressed in high gloss black, which should suit owners with black-cased iPods. And goths. The SX 3000R also includes two nice additions: an FM radio and a fully functioning remote. Just as unique is the X 300 Speaker To Go package. Looking like a neoprene sandwich box, it keeps your iPod safe on the move while doubling as a portable speaker system, thanks to an NXT flat panel speaker in the lid. Just don’t try to put your lunch in it. Standard 3.5mm jacks mean both units will work with other MP3 players, which is a boon for the iPod backlash. The X 300 requires three AAA batteries.
