We’ve seen many strange items in the electronics world, but the ones that truly make us scratch our heads are speakers. Manufacturers try to create products that are different from your ordinary stereo speakers, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Flashy designs, shapes and even colours can be appealing, but they can be a bit too much.
The following speakers probably have a few fans, but are definitely up there on the “weird list”.
Strange Speaker #1. The Stone Age
They may look like a design crafted by a caveman, but the AWR-650-SM outdoor speaker is intended to blend into your garden. Along with being available in a variety of stone finishes like granite and red rock, the “sound boxes” are also weather-resistant. (Update: This speaker is no longer available, but there are now a huge selection of great rock speakers to choose from.)
Strange Speaker #2. A Winter Wonderland
They may look like a design crafted by a caveman, but the AWR-650-SM outdoor speaker is intended to blend into your garden. Along with being available in a variety of stone finishes like granite and red rock, the “sound boxes” are also weather-resistant.
Strange Speaker #3. An Artistic Approach
Tired of just looking at art pieces? A company by the name of SoundArt has created an invention that takes canvas art and turns it into a speaker. Included in the product is your choice of canvas print, a loud subwoofer and a distributed mode loudspeaker that sits in the frame.

Strange Speaker #4. Welcoming The Force
Though it may not be entirely weird to Star Wars fans, this speaker setup is definitely out of the ordinary. Too bad they didn’t make the subwoofer the Death Star as it would compliment the TIE Fighter speakers very nicely.

Strange Speaker #5. The Woofer
Having headless dog speakers around your house probably isn’t a good idea, especially if you have friends who just adore the animals. But as the product shows, the company definitely wasn’t thinking about dog-lovers.
Strange Speaker #6. Giant Earbuds
Creating giant iPod ear buds sounds like an okay idea at first, but as this product shows, they just look really strange.
Strange Speaker #7. With A Cherry On Top
Made by SG Custom Sound, these Ice Cream Sundae speakers are an awesome idea for the kitchen! However, they just may freak out your friends or trick someone into thinking they’re actually sundaes.

Strange Speaker #8. The Future?
The concept is cool, but there’s just something awfully weird about the Nautilus speakers from Bowers & Wilkins. Available in blue and silver, the futuristic product was created from a groundbreaking, five-year research and development program.
