Gadgets: Cy•Fi Wireless Sports Speaker

Cyclist, hikers and other outdoors enthusiasts looking to ditch their earphones yet still enjoy the sounds of music now have a stylish rugged alternative, the Cy•Fi Wireless Sports Speaker. Utilizing bluetooth technology for a wireless design the minuscule new Cy•Fi Wireless Sports Speaker weighs in at just under 4oz and features a footprint about as large as a man's wallet. Making it mountable on just about any bike, jogging stroller or backpack – almost anywhere for user friendly portability.

The Bluetooth version has been designed to play music on any device that supports A2DP, such as a Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone or Smartphone, iPod or iPod nano or any other supported MP3 player. The Cy∙Fi also doubles as a hands-free speakerphone allowing you to receive phone calls even while you listen to music. If your phone supports voice recognition you can even use the system to easily make speed dialing calls.

Cy∙Fi is the brainchild of Los Angeles entrepreneur and cycling enthusiast Jeff Lotman, who wanted to find a safer way to bike with his iPod. “Music makes biking more fun,” he says. “It enhances the experience and motivates you to push harder.” Jeff determined that the solution was a small, wireless speaker that he could mount to his bike frame.
