Lanchiya's iPhone/iPod speakers are crazy cool

LAS VEGAS--These are not your typical iPhone/iPod speakers, and that's the way Lanchiya, a Chinese digital audio company, likes it.

We're guessing you've probably never heard of Lanchiya, but you might already be familiar with one of its products, the iPig stereo dock. The cute pig-shaped iPod speaker is just one of those novelty products that make for fun gifts.

Lanchiya's whole goal is to make high-quality, great-sounding speakers at a fraction of the prices set by some of the other high-end home audio companies, such as Bose. And it's doing it with flair.

All of the company's models cost between $100 to $200 and feature some kind of futuristic or adorable design. The sight made me stop in my tracks as I was roaming the CES show floor, and I can only imagine they'd be quite the conversation starter at a party.

Check out the photo gallery below to get a closer look at the wackiness. Also, though the speakers only support Apple mobile devices at this time, Lanchiya is planning to release Bluetooth-enabled models this year, so everyone from Android lovers to Windows Phone loyalists can enjoy them, too.
