Eco Friendly Audio Equipment

Do you love listening to your music on speakers? Does the thought of realizing how much you pay to run those speakers give you pause before you turn them on? There are good options for eco friendly and energy efficent iPod docks, stereos, speakers, etc.

 

iPod Docks

Vers 2X wooden iPod dock

  • The Vers 2X is a compact, all-in-one iPod dock. It plays and charges any iPod (or iPhone; it also comes with a universal MP3 dock in case you’re breaking the mold with a Zen or a Zune or something else). It has 2 3” 15-watt speakers, dual port design for deeper bass, and a sweet little silver remote control.
  • Vers uses wood which displaces 80% of what otherwise would have been plastic. They’ve also done their homework so the wood they use is sustainably harvested. Each unit is also put together with screws (not adhesives or snaps), so each dock can be broken down for easy recycling. There’s no formaldehyde or toxic glue in the wood bonding. And in other chemical news, Vers is RoHS compliant.
  • The packaging is also made from 100% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. The class D amplifier used in Vers 2X is 80% more energy efficient than other amplifiers. That means it uses about half the energy to produce the same amount of sound.

  • You can get your 2X for a (suggested retail) price of $149.99 directly through the Vers website or through any of their retailers (Target.com, Feel More Human, and many others).

Speakers

Pioneer Speaker S Lx70w

  • They cost around $1100 and are available at Pioneerelectronics. They use 6% less electricity that standard models. The Power consumption is 90Watts when running and just 1 Watt when not. The driver has a 30cm bass driver, the frequency is 25 to 4000Hz.
  • There are many advantages to this particular brand. If you love listening to your music on speakers this will save you money. The quality is equal to others of its kind. By buying an energy star product it promotes energy awareness. They are available all over the world. You don't need to worry about being only in a specific county to get it.
  • There are some disadvantages to purchasing a big item like this. If you do not want to spend the money to lower a small section of you energy cost, it may not be worthwhile. Even thought this item is an energy saver, overall energy use is very small. You will only save a buck, while spending much more than that.
