Summary: These speakers were what I was expecting and wanted. I use them with my tiny mp3 player all the time. Sound quality is decent, however, the lower frequencies dont come through. For the price and ease of use, I'm okay with that.
Summary: I love this speaker. Actually, I had another one exactly like this one that I used constantly for more than 5 years. Finally the wires must have broken leading from my iPod to the speaker, because it began to malfunction. I was so disappointed when I went on line to Sony and discovered this model was discontinued. However, I was delighted to discover it was available from Amazon. I listen to audiobooks on a daily basis and this little speaker is wonderful.
Summary: For some horrible reason, these speakers are difficult to find now and where I could find them, they are very expensive ($70+!!). I've had one for about 6 years now and use it daily (seriously, every night to listen to books-on-tape) and the plug finally packed it in. I've just ordered two from this vendor while the price is still reasonable. I should be set for another 10-15 years! This unit is perfect for low volume use and for travel.
