CES 2013: Ion's Clipster takes your music on-the-go

1:06 /

A small speaker that clips to your belt loop? CNET's Bridget Carey found just that at CES 2013.

-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET. I'm here at CES 2013. And we have another product for you here at the Ion booth. This is called the Clipster. Say hello to the boombox of the future perhaps. This is a clippable boombox that works on Bluetooth. It connects to any phone as in iPhone, Android phone, Windows phone because it works on Bluetooth. It's very basic. It has volume control buttons here, a start and a pause. And it hooks on to backpacks, perhaps a great way to annoy the fellow people on the bus. Or for hikers, maybe you want to have some music on the go or biking. It comes in several colors. It's $29 and it's going to be available sometime this spring. I'm sure the parents will love to have this. It makes it easier for kids to blast their music in the house. If you do blast your music, the battery life will last you about eight hours. But if you have normal volume, perhaps you can get it up to 12 hours. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey here at CES 2013 with the Clipster by Ion.
