After hitting the European market earlier this year, Edifier's bulbous iF500 iPod/iPhone speaker system speaker is making its way across the Atlantic to both the U.S. and Canada.

Here's a look at its basic specs:

  • All-in-one audio system for iPod, iPhone, and other portable audio players
  • Five-driver speaker system incorporates vibration and resonance control technologies coupled with low-frequency porting and midrange-tuned cavities for smoother cleaner audio
  • Digital FM radio
  • Aux input for connecting other audio devices
  • Signal-to-noise rate: 85dBA
  • Power output: RMS 10W x 2 + 32W (subwoofer)
  • Bass driver unit: 5.75 inches, magnetically shielded
  • Midrange driver: 2.75 inches, magnetically shielded
  • MSRP: $249
Edifier makes some interesting-looking audio products that also sound pretty good, but they don't always make it to the U.S. We look forward to trying the iF500 out and should get a review sample soon.
