The Jack Speaker by Ben Wahrlich fulfills where so many sound systems fall short. Desktop speakers are rarely made to last anymore, yet these have been manufactured in indestructible concrete. You're more at risk of damaging your hardwood floor if one of these were to roll off of its stand.

The Sydney-based AN/AESTHETIC designer sculpted this little gadget with a stylish simplicity. Nearly cylindrical, it tapers slightly towards the back and opens up to emit its sound at the front. Smooth and pale gray in color, the device has a seamless exterior with a curved notch scooped out of one side. A wooden dowel is intended to be slipped beneath it to keep it in place and buffer any vibrations. The Jack Speaker by Ben Wahrlich is a beautiful harmony of materials that offers sensational acoustics.
