Now that Bluetooth speakers are all the rage, iLuv is looking to add to its lineup of said offerings just before the official start of CES. First, the Mo'Beats HD wireless unit features SRS WOW tech and a 3.5mm aux jack for wired streaming. The gadget also touts a space that will cradle that handset or slate while The Black Keys are blasting. Next, the Bluetooth-wielding MobiCup is designed to get cozy in that beach chair this summer with 360-degree speakers, built-in microphone, top-mounted controls and splash-resistant buttons to keep things dry (to a certain extent, of course). Last but not least, the MobiOut (pictured above) is also splash-resistant and sports a built-in mic, but this unit boasts Jump-start tech that will offer a quick charge in a pinch and deeper bass tones alongside high-fidelity sound. The MobiCup is priced at $59.99 and the MobiOut at $129.99, however there's no pricing info on the Mo'Beats HD just yet. While the former two speakers will arrive later this month, the latter is scheduled for May. For a look at the entire lot in order of mention, consult the gallery below. %Gallery-174713%

The speaker's rechargeable lithium-ion battery allows for extended play on the go.
Specifically designed to fit perfectly in a cup holder, this Bluetooth-enabled speaker is perfect for the on-the-go lifestyle. It's universally designed to fit cup holders found in cars, beach chairs, and even baby strollers. Simple and seamless, MobiCup delivers 360-degree sound from acoustically engineered housing and speaker drivers. MobiCup was designed with top-mounted controls and an upper-positioned speaker that provide the ultimate convenience for the user. It is splash-resistant with sealed controls, which make it a great companion for outdoor activities. It also boasts crisp sound from an upper-positioned speaker. MobiCup includes a built-in microphone, and top-mounted controls so users can change the volume, take a call or play a track with the touch of a button.
The wireless and splash-resistant design of MobiOut allows users to bring this portable speaker dock virtually anywhere.
