Summary: 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.
Pros: small, powerful, cheap
Cons: me being dumb and not remembering that it takes batteries!
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.
Summary: 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.
Philips SBA1500: Handy and stylish portable speakers
5 May 2008
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: Desde que tengo ordenador portátil he estado quejándome de la calidad del sonido, tanto que al final un alma caritativa me ha regalado unos pequeños altavoces para poder escuchar música y vídeos con un sonido medio bueno y de ahí llegaron a mis manos estos pequeos altavoces Philips. Según parece no solo están pensados como altavoces para el ordenador sino que sirven para diversos elementos que no necesiten un aumento de potencia exagerado ya que no están amplificados así...
Summary: Heb ze vorige week besteld nu gister binnengekregen. Het zijn wel grappige boxjes en ze doen het goed aardig geluid erin alleen wel jammer dat ze niet zon hard geluid aankunnen, zet je Ipod op zijn hardst en het geluid kraakt als de neten. Toch zijn het degelijke en goede boxjes voor deze prijs.
Pros: Eenvoudig in gebruik, Goede prijs/kwaliteit, energiezuinig, handig opruim systeem, zien er leuk uit, ook degelijk geluid zonder batterijen(binnenshuis)
Cons: Past niet optimaal, snoertjes redelijk kort, had verwacht dat ze harder konden
