I'd read one or two indifferent reviews on this speaker but decided I'd take a chance. There had been comments about the bass quality (I'm no expert) yet I have to say I didn't notice any discernable difference to the JBL speaker I use at home. After all, it is a TRAVEL speaker, so what are people expecting, Bose quality?
It's light yet sturdy and gives off a good sound with little distortion at high volumes. My iPod Touch fits snuggly into the port. I use this speaker in work as I was always conscious of any dock system that leaves the iPod exposed, as lots on the market do. If it does get knocked to the floor accidentally at least the iPod will survive!
It's neat, functional and more than does the job.
My only gripe is the arm at the back, which seems a tad flimsy and a remote would have been nice, but it is a travel speaker so you can't have everything!
Apart from that, as I say you could do a lot worse at this price.
