A famous dead dude once said, "A man cannot live on bread alone, nor listen to music through his cell phone speakers."
We might be misquoting, but you get the idea. It's an abomination unto the gods of music to turn the lush production of a studio album into the tinny mouse-squeaks that come out of most cell phones.
Which is why you need the HiddenRadio2.
The revamped version of the original HiddenRadio, which made quite the audible splash last year, this sleek and simple portable device automatically lifts its top with the touch of a finger, revealing the speaker beneath.
Since it's round, it provides 360-degree sound. Unlike other portable speakers, you can link it to another HiddenRadio2 to create a mobile sound system.
In addition to Bluetooth, it's also NFC-enabled for those fanciest of future phones. Oh, and it works as a speaker-phone, too.
But its design is where it's at. The smart controls are all unmarked: by tapping the cap, you can play, pause, adjust the volume, skip forward or back, answer calls, and even hail Siri.
Though 360º of Siri might not be the best idea.
