Animal Head Smartphone Speakers from Elecom
Would You Like to Listen to a Bear, Cat, or Rabbit?
Today Elecom released a new animal-themed plug-in smartphone speaker series.
Unlike many external speakers, this new unit has a built-in 3.5mm (1/8 in.) plug that attaches the speaker directly to the phone via the headphone jack. The 3.5mm size is the effectively universal, default jack/plug size for nearly all small electronics.

As mentioned above (see photos below), the plainly named ASP-SMP050 Series is available in Bear, Cat, or Rabbit versions of standard Japanese cute.
While not specifically addressed by Elecom, it appears that Bear, Cat, and Rabbit are rubbery, interchangeable covers.
As the speaker plugs directly into a smartphone (as a single unit), those who who use smartphone covers will want to try before they buy!
