Summary: These are excellent speaker and give back good sound quality. I have not had them long enough to comment on battery life. They are well made, compact, and easily carried around in a suitcase. An LED on light would have been handy as the unit can ealily be left on which could drain the battery. Apart from that, excellent.
Excerpt: I love my IPod and was super happy to unwrap it at Christmas time two years ago. For a long time I would put my headphones in and sit the IPod in my pocket whilst I did the housework. I was perfectly content with this until I saw a friend of mine had a docking station for her IPod. Instantly I was jealous and having mine in my pocket was now unacceptable. I tried playing my iTunes songs from the computer but they just couldn't follow me around the house.
Summary: Ordered these for my son's school project - absolutely brilliant - simple and easy - he uses these with his ipod touch, great sound and simple to tidy away, as the two speaker faces clip into the sturdy rubber cable tidy - making it one easy portable speaker system, exactly what is says on the Box!
Summary: bought these to connnect to my Mrs Laptop as its so small and thin she occasionally wants speakers when using the web cam. having used small speakers to boost my ipod assumed these would give a better all round sound. for the price they do the job, but if it were me I'd get some better ones and spend a bit of money, however the mrs is happy I also thing they are quite big and cumbersome - not great design.
Summary: Smart looking speaker set Good sound tone and volume Slightly misleading description as being practical to " Carry it around in your handbag " as it is like a small childs football when clipped together. However overall pleased with item.
good quality low budget speakers that makes up for its faults in its price tag

Excerpt: if you're looking for cheap portable speakers this is a pretty good option. the speaker set comes with two wired speakers and a subwoofer. the speakers are battery powered by two AA batteries and last for quite a long time. i bought mine back in february this year and they are still going!
Summary: I have just purchased this product. The sound is very low on normal setting. With the amplification I had to reduce the MP3 volume to half way it was that good. I also have to say unlike the other report there is no evidence of distortion my ears can detect. For a cheap portable speakers for MP3 players I am more than satisfied and would recommend it to anyone looking for low cost way of playing MP3 without headphones.
Summary: If you compare the prices of some other branded portable speakers these represent good value for money. I thought the previous review somewhat unfair but agree they are not suitable for in car use. I use them with both my MP3 player (Samsung T10) and my Pinnacle Soundbridge internet radio and the volume level and sound quality is more than adequate without using the battery powered amplifier section.
Excerpt: These speakers are great. They are fully run off battery power, meaning that they are portable and can be used outdoors, on picnics etc. They also clip together into a nifty and very portable little ball (the two semi-circular speakers clip onto either side of the central amplifier part). When clipped together the whole unit is probably about the size, but a rounder shape, of a toilet paper roll, so pretty small.
