There's a decent chance that the ambiance of your picnic could be improved by a tune or two, and as much as shared earbuds can be romantic, the Eton Soulra XL offers better sound projection and acts as a self-sustaining system.
The portable boombox has been cleverly designed to incorporate a 72-square-inch pivoting panel of solar cells. The eco inclusion allows your iPod or iPhone to blast beats through the eight flanking speakers with a 22-watt bass boost while charging your device. All of this is powered by the sun.
The adaptability of the sound system is met with accessories like a gel-cushioned carrying strap for out-of-house use and a remote control for operation across a room. To keep your prized MP3 player safe, the Eton Soulra XL docking station also comes complete with an anti-glare tinted chamber.
