First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Your iPod Is good to the last drop

iPod owners might have felt left out when I wrote about the Noritz Juke Tower, which lets you listen to MP3s in the shower, provided they're on a thumb drive. But the white-earbud set has something similar as well: ZumReed's Drop Speaker, a drop-shaped unit that snugly encloses an iPod and has a speaker in its base.
The screw-top gadget appears to be water-resistant rather than waterproof, which means you'd probably be able to splash it with water but spraying it with the shower head might be a no-no. Still, with four external controls and an extremely portable design, the Drop Speaker is a reasonably convenient way to listen to your tunes without worrying about your player.
