Atlantic Inc. today announced its latest consumer electronic accessory — the EGO Waterproof Sound Case for iPod. As the first fully controllable waterproof iPod music player system that floats in water, the EGO Waterproof Sound Case was awarded the 2007 CES Innovations Award for Excellence in Engineering and Design and will be featured at the upcoming 2007 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Jan. 8-11, 2007.
Designed to house the popular fourth- and fifth-generation iPod models as well as the iPod nanos and minis, the EGO Waterproof Sound Case is a portable boom box, featuring waterproof speakers, sealed base venting ports and sound powered by dual, full-range neodymium drivers. The silicone gasket and snap-locking latch protects the iPod while providing waterproof control via the click wheel membrane. Waterproof controls make it easy to turn the unit on and off, select songs or adjust the volume. Powered by four AA batteries, the Waterproof Sound Case plays music or videos continuously for 30 hours. When the user forgets to turn the unit off, it automatically shuts down after two and a half minutes of inactivity, preserving battery life.
The EGO Waterproof Sound Case retails for USD$199.
