great value for money

Linda Tuffey, Amazon
4 May 2008
  • Summary: I really like these little speakers. They come with a nice case and all the ipod adaptors needed. The sound is not the best, a little tinny, and the volume is not quite as strong as I would like as I bought it for outdoor parties. These things I expected for the price.

Great for the price

BSM, Amazon

  • Summary: I think these are great for the price. They have a nice sound and charge the ipod while playing or just docked. I have a nano so use one of the supplied adapters. It holds it securely. I'm sure if it got knocked off the shelf it would fall out but other than that catastrophe it is secured.

Worthwhile purchase

  • Summary: I shopped around and I'm pleased with this purchase. It plays well, recharges my ipod, comes with a carry case, isn't too big, seems to be made well, looks okay in the living room, can use batteries which may come in handy and it has a reasonable price.

Nice inexpensive speakers, light on bass

Bob, Amazon
27 November 2007
  • Summary: Just got it today. Amazon had it at an incredible $38. I have a Dell DJ plugged into the AUX port, so I don't know if it sounds better with an ipod docked as others have said. I like that the ipod dock slides in (out of the way) when not in use.

First impressions

Javy Cado, Amazon
1 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought the IM5 because my video ipod wouldnt fit in the IM3 (mini ipod or nano only). I could attach it but wouldnt charge the ipod like that. I havent taken it on my trip yet but things I have noticed about it already is it has a poorly placed on/off button.

  • Summary: I love this little speaker system and now have one in the office and one at home for moving around the apartment and for travelling. It is small and compact, and comes with international plugs so you can take it around the world.

Great sound!

  • Summary: I bought this speaker system for my wife's ipod nano igb. I don't personally own an ipod and didn't know much about what kind of things you need to make them more enjoyable. As usual amazon made my shopping easy. The sound from these speakers is nothing short of amazing.

A Good Speaker, But Has Durability Issues

Alex Dodd, Amazon
19 December 2006
  • Summary: Overall, this is a great speaker system. Bass is strong for its size, midtones are good, and there is excellent treble. The speakers work better with my iPod, rather than other things connected via the AUX IN jack (ie CD player and other mp3 players).

Altec Portable speaker

J. M. Gobern "Army Doc", Amazon
25 February 2006
  • Summary: This was much smaller than I anticipated. I am, however , very pleased with the portability of this speaker and the quality of sound it produces. It has both battery and AC power which is great. It works perfect with my NANO.
