) by Bird Electron–made from real gourds–introduce a warm, organic aesthetic that contrasts with the utilitarian high-tech look of Apple products.

For 10,000 years, gourds have been grown and used as ornamentation, musical instruments and utensils. In Japan they have a long tradition as water containers (hyoutans), tableware and decorated carved vessels for sacred spirits in Shinto temples. In Feng Shui the gourd is also considered a receptacle of good fortune. The many positive connotations render the gourd speakers an ideal house warming gift.

Specifications:
Size: 13-16 cm (appr. height)*
Cable length: 2 m
Maximum input: 0.5W

The gourd speakers can be used with any device that provides a 1/8 headphone jack but cannot be connected to an audio terminal.

* Please note that the individual size/weight of the speakers vary slightly.
