This is possibly my best buy of the year. However, I am the owner of 3 ipods and have never had a portable speaker, so maybe its just the concept of a portable speaker I'm enamoured with. The product is really stylish and I love the fact it comes in white, looks really cool in a modern environment. The product is excellent value for money and I love the round design, even without your ipod in it, it blends in to part of the furniture as its small. Its small size also means that its portable. I take mine on holiday, to friends houses and outside as it can easily be transported in a rucksack. It is durable and really light. The sound quality is good, and is easy to function. If you want a light, stylish looking, compact and transportable speaker for your ipod, then this does the job and is good value for money. Thumbs up.
