Reebok backpack wants to disturb the peace too

Built-in speakers join curious trend.

Reebok

Reasons behind the popularity of backpack speakers continue to elude us, but the trend has just gotten some additional validation. Not only are such products being peddled by smaller brands, but now a major player has weighed in with a version on the U.K. market.

Reebok is offering the "NXT Speaker Backpack," which is powered by two AA batteries and will blast tunes from anything that can connect to its 3.5-millimeter jack. There's no information indicating how powerful these speakers are, though we suspect they're made for the finicky audiophile anyway.

Tech Shout notes that the bag conceals the speakers fairly well, though we're not sure why that's so important, other than perhaps as a deterrant to theft. But if they're used in public at all, that purpose will obviously be defeated.
