Built-in phone speakers may be good enough to annoy an entire carriage of commuters, but they're not known for their audio fidelity. Hurrah then for Orange, which has finally brought us the speaker set we deserve. Made by audio experts Acoustic Energy, the wire-free stereo cones are designed for use in the home where they pump out a room-filling 20 Watts. Jack up Thanks to A2DP Bluetooth they can stream music direct from any suitably equipped mobile – just make sure you don't wander more than ten meters away with the handset or the music will stop. Non-Bluetooth players get a look-in via a wired stereo jack. You can also separate the two speakers for better audio effect, but only by up to two meters as they're connected by wires... oops – not quite wire-free then.
