  Very nice to look at, but.................

| | See all kalel316's reviews (4)

While these speakers are very nice to look at, the design is very easy and cool going, the actual usage of these wireless speakers is awful!
You only need to move around 15 yards away and the sound becomes distorted and grainy.
I wouldn't recomemnd these to anyone who wants top quality wirelss sound.

  Not a bad piece of kit...

| | See all SpiralOfMeow's reviews (1)

Just received this as it seemed right for me as a homeworker, being moveable rechargable speakers which i can carry about the house from room to room - perfect! Well, not quite. They're very good but have a couple of niggles.

The build is actually far more solid than i thought, although the base is a bit plasticky but not to a distracting degree. It also looks pretty interesting. I wandered around my house holding my... Er... Balls and, despite the walls being quite thick, they held up (oh dear, this isn't going well is it).

Anyway... The sound isn't quite up to par, so audiophiles won't like it because it's a little dull to the ear. But if you like the idea of the gimmick, it does work and it's servicable. The lack of a remote doesn't bother me either and the docking bit isn't tough to insert when you pop you pod inbetween your balls, either.



A worthwhile purchase!

  Great bit of kit!

Received this a couple of days ago and i am impressed.

First off i would suggest that people go into a store and double check compatability first. I play an i-pod nano through it and it works perfectly. The speakers have a great range, i get a good signal through the whole of my house.

I think it has a lovely finish and looks good wherever it is. I was a bit unsure before getting it but it does charge the i-pod as well.

Sound doesn't have loads of bass but that is to be expected, suprised how loud it does go though. All in all i am very happy with the purchase and recommend it.

  Not compatible with all mp3 players

| | See all lexawhite85's reviews (1)

I received this as a present for Christmas, great idea, absolutely brilliant and worked fine with my mother's ipod. This would have been the perfect gift as I'm one of those people who like to have music in every room I am in and you can just carry it with you.
Unfortunately, it's promise to work with MP3 players doesn't seem to apply to my Sony HD50.

Although this comes with the cable to connect other mp3 players through the headphone socket, and mine fitted in the holding slot as it's quite small, it just doesn't work. I get the music and sound perfectly as normal, but the voices sound like they are underwater. I tried all different settings on my mp3 player and each time failed.
Quite disappointing as I think this is a great idea, just another Apple product punishing those who won't conform.

I would suggest finding this in a store and testing it first with the MP3 player concerned if you don't have an iPod to make sure. If it is an iPod then perfect. If it worked it would have been 5 stars, but it doesn't for me and just reinforces my annoyance with the Apple corporation.

  excellent product for the money!

Just gave this to my boyfriend for xmas and he is really impressed - for what we paid, it is a great product. Took speakers to highest point in the house and they work well. Goes fairly loud too but without crackling so we were pleased with the sound quality. It looks cool-great to take in the bathroom while you are in the bath!

  Great Value for Wireless sound

Just given it a quick once over using my old iPod Nano 3G + tried with New Nano 4G - both worked fine.. also worked with my iPhone 3G, Sound quality is pretty good for size & looks really good, I put the base in the kitchen and took the speakers up stairs with no problems. 4 stars not 5 as not remote controlled but you can adjust volumes on each speaker directly - away from base unit - so does the job.

  Excellent Product

| | See all PureEgo's reviews (2)

This item is excellent, the speakers sound good and they really work. I mean that you can carry both or either speaker around and the music goes with you wireless. Each speaker has its own on/off switch with volume. The only downside is that the speakers are large balls around 12cm dia and no remote control. However sounds good and worth buying. Ipod docks as normal with various adaptors. Looks good too.
