I was a bit worried when I purchased these speakers. For the price that they are, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them if you're looking for some alright sound quality speakers that can charge your iPod at the same time. It looks expensive, iy's a good size and you get a lot of functions to choose from. The downsides of these are that the material it's made from means it easily collects dust/fingerprints all over the product, the sound quality isn't amazing (with no bass settings etc) where sometimes I get this fuzzyness in the background when I play my iPod. Also, it's not brilliant as a clock when on Standby with the LED off. But I'm happy with them for how much I payed.
