MusiCase is a unique iPod® accessory, which combines two amplified stereo speakers with a carrying case.

CHICAGO, June 27, 2005 - First International Digital, Inc. (FID), maker of the popular irock!® family of digital audio devices and the leader in FM transmitter technology, today introduced MusiCase™, a unique iPod® accessory, which combines two amplified stereo speakers with a carrying case.


MusiCase is made of a lightweight, durable nylon material, which allows users to easily store, protect, and transport their MP3 players and related accessories. Inside, two mesh pockets are specially optimized to hold iPods and the iPod Shuffle, although the device is compatible with any MP3 player.

When connected to MusiCase's two internal speakers (1.8" and 1.1"), the iPod or MP3 player becomes a fully portable stereo system, powered by a built -in three -watt amplifier and producing clear, crisp sound without the need for headphones or cumbersome external speakers.

"For the first time, MusiCase combines two popular MP3 add -ons - the carrying case and portable speakers - into one essential MP3 accessory," said Randy Cavaiani, EVP at First International Digital. "It's the ideal way to enjoy music on the go without headphones or share your iPod library with friends."

MusiCase measures 5.8" x 4.8" x 2.0" and is powered by two AA batteries, which provide approximately 15 hours of music (depending on volume levels). A built -in loop allows for belt attachment and a detachable carrying strap is also included. MusiCase retails for $19.99. For more information, visit www.myirock.com.
