Mr. Ed-approved My Pet Speaker lets your stable rock softly, safely

Darren Murph

File this one in the "you've got to be kidding me" category. Just in case you're terrified of your dog, cat, horse or Russian grizzly bear getting "put on alert" by the "jarring volumes and piercing sounds" that are generally emitted from your boombox, there's now a solution to your specific quandary. Pet Acoustics has just introduced the My Pet Speaker, an omni-directional sound system that contains a 4-inch driver, reduced bass levels and the extraordinary ability to "disburse music in 360 degrees recreating how animals hear in nature." Not good enough? The buttons are even positioned in the rear to keep your animals from skipping the awful tracks in your chosen playlist, and the "stable case design prevents easy knock down by pets." If you're a particular type of sucker (or you just enjoy hearing music with no bottom end whatsoever), you can claim your own in secret next month for $249.95. Rock on, Rosie.

Pet Acoustics Unleashes the World's First Sound System Designed to Support the Hearing Sensitivities of Dogs, Cats and Horses

My Pet Speaker transforms your personal music library into pet-friendly tunes that soothe and relax dogs, cats, horses and their people

Innovative Pet Acoustics iPhone Application plays music specifically composed to reduce a pet's stress, anxiety, and aggression caused by their reaction to sounds

Co-Founder of Pet Acoustics and a leading authority on music for animals, Janet Marlow has created a revolutionary speaker system designed for your pets' delicate hearing. With their acute sense, our pets can hear frequencies that are both much higher and much lower than what the human ear is capable of hearing. Sounds outside of an animals normal comfort range can startle or cause discomfort to our pets.

By producing limited frequencies and featuring a soft bass design for listening comfort, your pets will not be startled or disturbed by jarring volumes and piercing sounds that put them on alert. My Pet Speaker keeps these alarming frequencies within the comfort range of your pet's hearing. This allows you to use your entire music library to fill you and your pets' environment with a sense of calm and relaxation.

My Pet Speaker features include:

· Omni directional speaker and 4" drive unit with cone reflector disburses music for 360 degree sound

· Soft bass design for listening comfort

· Backside buttons to avoid pets contact with operation panel

· Stable base design to prevent easy knock down by pets

· Attractive real wood veneers for home and commercial decor

· Works with any music device, including mp3 player, CD player, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPod that include a 3.5mm output jack

· Frequency response 200Hz ~ 12KHz

· 5Kg (net weight excluding transformer) 11.02 lbs

Pet owners can also download Pet Acoustics iPhone Application to create the ultimate pet sanctuary at home, at the vet, or even in the car. Unveiled in October of 2009, the Pet Acoustics' Application includes multiple tracks composed for you and your pets. My Pet Speaker coupled with the Pet Acoustics Application provides music and sounds that are tailored to fit the pitch, tone, frequency, and volume level for a pet's vulnerable hearing.
