I came across these speakers for my ipod touch about a year ago now and they are very good. Also at a reasonable price at HMV which also came with many accersories like a new case and wall charger for my ipod.
The speakers produce a very good sound with their 3watt speakers. It does not sound like a huge watt but for the price it is very decent and sound is not tinny at all.
the main reason for buying these speakers was for the ultra portable design; being only 16mm thick i can almost take them anywhere i go. Also the front docking part to place your ipod will fold in allowing you to easily store in any luggage bag or backpack.
The speakers themselves are very portable with their design as i have stated but they also allow you to use them by using batteries instead of the a.c adapter included. When using batteries they do last a long time for up to 7 hours i have noticed. However if you use them all the time portably, you require 4 AA batteries which will cost a bit.
The product is very reliable as they are still in great condition after almost 1 year. I am also very confident of folding it up and placing it in mu luggage. They seem to be a very firm, hard product that will take a lot to brake.
A very nice product by gear4 at a good price.
I was looking for a set of portable speakers for my iPod that would be small enough for travel, yet still produce a good quality sound. The Gear4 StreetParty size 0 fulfils both criteria.
Firstly it is amazingly thin and light - 16mm depth and weighing aroung 300 grammes. The bottom unfolds nicely from the sleeky designed speaker to provide a dock that comfortably takes nano and video iPods. There is also a line-in with a standard jack for other players.
The unit is powered by 4 AA batteries, or the mains charger supplied. The charger has two interchangeable plug faces, standard British 3 pin and European 2 pin, so again is ideal to take on holiday. It also charges your iPod when operating on mains power.
The unit fits snugly into a stylish neoprene carry case, moreover it can be used to place the speakers on and prevent any vibration.
A remote control, only slightly larger than a credit card, means that you don't have to get up from your sunlounger to change tracks!
The sound quality is very good for most melodic music styles, however, it would probably not be satisfactory if you are into bass heavy music with a constant beat.
I bought mine when it first came out and it was priced around £50.00. It is now available for around £35.00 from Amazon.
These speakers are a must buy if you want to take your music abroad, the size and weight are minimal and you would have to search hard to find comparative quality in something this size.
