Pros small, portable
Cons Use missleading if buying based off picture
Summary There is no way for the iPod video pictured on the box to be playing any sound from the iPod. The reason is that all audio is pumped to the speakers via an audio jack. The audio jack is on the top and there is no cable plugged in. This pitcured iPod video is sitting in the dock for looks.
Also, the dock is just a physical dock, no iPod connector is used to connect the iPod to the speakers. Lastly, the secure wheel (to keep iPod sitting up right) is not very snug, even though it is adjustable.
End decision: buy if you want portable low cost speakers. Don't buy if you want true iPod integration via iPod connector.
Pros Inexpensive, compact, easy to use. Surprisingly good sound considering other users ratings.
Cons no iPod touch cradle adapters (doesn't really matter as product sits in dock fine on its own)
Summary people are reviewing this product as though they purchased the product looking for an audiophile experience. This product is great for what it is, a portable speaker solution for an mp3 player. If you expect an audiophile experience, spend the money on a proper stereo system. Definitely worth the $50.
"Use it with Zune"on by Rod Roddy
Pros Small, compact...the Zune is big enough!
Cons Not too loud, no remote
Summary I use these speakers with my Zune, and they work just fine. The only other speaker system for Zune is by Altec Lansing, and they'll set you back 200+...ouch. There is a fitting nob on the back, that you can rotate to custom fit the Zune. I wish there was a remote, but that's non-existant.
Also the volume is a bit on the low side, but what do you expect on such a compact unit. Save yourself some cash, and get these, if you really need portable speakers. They come in White and Black, so they look good with whatever Zune color you own.
Pros Small, decent sound
Cons There is just nothing exceptional about it.
Summary Let's face it, no one wants to listen to their music and then walk away thinking,eh, I guess that sounded ok. That's what I was left with after using this unit. I kept it because it was open box and only $40, but I've already starting looking for another, better sounding, solution and I suggest you do that same. Mediocrity is not something you should embrace.
