If regular portable speakers don’t appeal, try the Lyrix Axis. It levitates, charges wirelessly, and pumps out great sound. You can currently grab one for $140 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials.

The speaker part of the Lyrix is the floating orb, which is kept hovering by the electromagnetic base. The base also provides wireless power, although the orb has a rechargeable battery, meaning it can be used independently for hours of playback. Along with impressive Bluetooth audio quality, the orb has physical controls and an LED belt that provides a colorful display. The lack of sound distortion is particularly noticeable; because the orb is levitating, it does not make other surfaces vibrate. When the base isn’t being used to charge the speaker, it can also charge other USB devices via the in-built port.

If you are trying to find a gift for the person who has everything, this is definitely a good option. The current deal takes 30% off the regular price, and shipping is free to the Continental US.

expiredJBL OnBeat Lightning iPhone 5/5s/5c or 6/6 Plus speaker dock (refurb): $15 shipped ($104 off)

Update (10/17 7:45am): Back in stock!

The Harman Store offers the OnBeat Lightning Speaker dock for $15 with free ground shipping. That’s $104 off retail and the lowest price we’ve seen it. It is $4 less than an Apple Lightning Cable at Retail Price!

( has been offering the new ones for $15+$5 shipping). We reviewed this last year and found the speaker to be pleasant sounding and the dock to be a convenient way to store the iPhone on a bookshelf or night stand. It also has 4 AA slots below if you want to take the charging/sound on the road and also has a 3.5mm stereo input jack and a USB port, which allows for the simultaneous charging of two devices at once when plugged into an outlet.

Upgrade your iPhone 5 with JBL® sound. If you’ve got an iPhone 5, you’ve got to get the JBL OnBeat Micro. With the new Lightning dock connector built in, the JBL OnBeat Micro lets you enjoy your music without wires or adapters, and even has a USB port for compatibility with other devices. Compact and portable, the JBL OnBeat Micro can bring the noise from ceiling to floor for up to 5 hours when it’s using batteries and allows you to charge your docked device when it’s using AC power. The JBL OnBeat Micro is good to go whenever the rhythm hits you.

Amazon reviewers agree, giving it 4/5 stars.

Note, that Harman says it is for the iPhone 5 or 5s but I’ve personally used it to charge an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and it works perfectly (also iPhone 5c works as well as well as Lightning iPods).  iPads unfortunately don’t fit

We’ve also spotted the white JBL OnBeat Micro Speaker Dock with Lightning Connector matching its lowest price ever at $39.99 shipped (black model for $40 here). That’s a savings of $80 off the regular asking price, $8 better than Amazon’s price on the black model and the lowest we’ve ever seen the rarely discounted white model go for. It features many of the same specs as its larger counterpart aside from the up to 5 hours battery life via four AAA batteries. Groupon’s listing said it comes with a 1 year warranty from JBL and it has received a 4.1 out of 5 stars review from over 1200 Amazon customers.
