Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand Looks Kinda Like A Pepper Shaker

Everyone's got a smartphone, so there's always music on the go.  The problem is, when you want to play a tune for everyone to hear, all the tiny speakers can manage to come out with are part-chipmunk, part-robot sounds.  You need a portable speaker and if you own a Sony Ericsson smartphone, their Media Speaker Stand looks like a suitable solution.

Sure, it looks like a stylish aluminum pepper shaker.  But it should fit easily in your pocket.  And it will hold up your phone at an angle.  And it should pipe tunes louder than your phone's crappy loudspeaker.  At least, we think so for the latter (Sony Ericsson doesn't have details listed on how many watts the dual speakers have).

The Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand is a cylinder-shaped contraption that measures 4.3 inches long with a 1.2-inch diameter.  To use it, simply slide off the head, which will reveal a 3.5mm connector and plug that onto your phone's matching port.  And you're done.  Power is provided by three AAA batteries, which can keep it running for 12 hours of continuous play.

Aside from pumping tunes from the grills at both ends of the tube, the speaker is designed to hold your phone at a landscape angle, so you can watch movies or play with apps while using the speaker.  The company has a list of supported phones, although this should handle anything with a 3.5mm slot.  Only thing is, a non-compatible phone may be at a location that won't allow it to stand comfortably while connected to the unit.

You can get the Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand now, priced at $38.99.

    Really, there is nothing quite as irritating as a robotized sound output from the smart phone. There are moments when one likes the thought o playing the newly found song a bit louder, maybe for the cute lady sitting next to hear! And these are the times when one realizes the insufficiency of the phone’s in built speakers in doing the attention seeking job. The Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand steps in blasts off really. The super stylish make up adds to the prospect of tuning up the volume for all to hear. It would have certainly sounded a crazy idea to style the dual speaker module as a pepper shaker, but the result is definitely super cool.

    Does it look impressive or what! With the brand name etched across the middle, the Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand encapsulates the sense of style associated with Sony Ericsson. And there sounds like loads of utility in there too. Portability is written all over the device. And there is the intelligent structuring to keep the serving smart phone at an angle for easy movie viewing. It is not always convenient to plug the earphones in to bite the time watching a movie on your phone. Having a portable speaker set handy is a good bet any day of the week, and certainly when it can double up as a phone stand alongside.

    A sliding head to cover the connector port and requirement of 3 AAA batteries for a 12 hour serving period, there is room for improvement as regards the material utilization and the power electronics department. But the pepper shaker design, simply awesome. And for all you know, they could come out with similarly styled speaker sets with the same electronic configuration in the near future. And talking about the electronic configuration, I seriously hope that there is enough under the hood to churn out some respectable sound volume and clarity. We certainly do not want to be stuck with some sort of eye candy wannabe speaker set.

    I would love to know the wattage of these portable speakers, as looks are a secondary consideration when it comes to a utility product such as portable speakers. Pepper shaker alright, but the Sony Ericsson Media Speaker Stand better have some serious stuff inside to appeal to consumers as there would be many technically well off speaker stands at under 40$.
