I have tried and tested numerous speakers for my PC and mp3 player and when it comes to a portable speaker very little can come close to the Hama 'Soundbag'. The first thing you notice about this portable speaker is that you dont notice anything, if that makes sense?! The 'Soundbag' is a portable speaker which connects through your mp3 players' headphone socket, and any suitably sized mp3 player will fit neatly inside the case.
The sturdy mp3 case looks very ordinary at first glance, but when you take a closer look and unzip the case you will notice the speaker attached to the inside of the case. On the other side of the inner case you will find a couple of elasticated straps that hold your mp3 player in place, and you will then soon be activating the speaker and listening on the go! The built-in speaker is ideal for enjoying a day on the beach with friends, and the sound emitted is adequate for such circumstances. I were impressed with the sound quality and although it couldn't be likened to the crispest of experiences, it did enough to convince me it was upto the job of keeping me entertained. The loudspeaker can be used with the case both open and closed, and the case is robust enough to safely store your mp3 player.
With a selling price of around the £25 mark the 'Soundbag' is reasonably priced. I am a huge fan of all things Hama (generally!) and the Universal Soundbag MINI is the case of choice when I am out and about. The case does a great job of being...well....a case, and with little additional weight than a standard case the 'Soundbag' is worth consideration.
