Pet Acoustics believes your current music system is stressing out your pets. According to them, your stereo produces frequencies that don't cater specifically to their hearing sensitivities. To right that wrong, they suggest you throw down $249 for their stereo, the My Pet Speaker, which "eliminates these unsettling frequencies".

Look, we love pets—not on a Leona Helmsley level or anything—but we'd be damned if we paid good money for a speaker to fill their environment with a "sense of calm and relaxation" when they seem to be living pretty comfortably with the ones we have now. Where are all these distressed pets? How about this: When all the dogs and cats of America gather together and march on Washington to demand better living conditions, give us a ring. [Pet Acoustics]
