Who says you can’t take it with you? With the Libratone Zipp, you can bring stunning sound wherever life leads you.

There’s nothing all that new about wireless speakers, but the ultra-portable and super-cute Libratone Zipp is something else entirely. This battery-driven, lightweight system will jam out your tunes even in areas where WiFi access is a distant dream. Yes, you heard that right: Libratone’s PlayDirect technology makes a connection between the speaker and your device, anytime and anywhere. And of course, the sound is fabulous, with digital signal processing and amplification. Compatible with both Apple and PC devices — and anything with iTunes 10.1 or higher. Not convinced yet?
