The X-mini Infiniti S gets a modest upgrade with HDMI ARC support.X-mini
Like last year"s X-mini Infiniti speaker, the new Infiniti S has four drivers and a subwoofer, but there are enough upgrades to keep it interesting.
The new version is lighter, sports a leather carrying strap and HDMI ARC to connect it to your TV to use as a soundbar. It costs $399, which converts to about £295 or AU$510.
The addition of HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) makes it easy to connect to a compatible TV. You just need an HDMI cable to hook it up. And because it"s portable, you can bring the Infiniti S to a friend"s place for parties. It"ll go on sale sometime between July and September.Quick specs

The new Evolve 2 headphones are also external speakers.X-mini
Besides the Infiniti S, the Singapore-based company also showed off the new pair of Evolve 2 headphones, which are also external speakers. They come with memory-foam padding and quad bass drivers and cost $149 (about £110 or AU$190).
Other updated products include the Xoundbar W, which feature dual 36mm drivers for stereo sound and the tiny Kai X1 W, which comes with a camera mount for hooking it up to your bike. Both products are IPX7 waterproof, which means you can take them to the pool.
The Xoundbar W will retail for $46 (about £35 or AU$60), while the Kai X1 W is a tad more expensive at $55 (£40 or AU$70 converted). Along with the Evolve 2, they"ll go on sale at some point between April and June.
