I tend to stick to earphones when listening to my iPod, however I wanted a change and thought I would give speakers a try. I chose the Alba IM8 speakers as I got them for less than £5 online from Amazon so I wouldn't worry too much if they didn't get used very much.
I got these speakers and can't believe how much I use them, they've been everywhere with me.
They are each to carry as they are light and quite compact when folded.
They are compatible with a wide range of devices, including iPods, MP3 and CD players. They connect to your device using a 3.5mm jack which plugs into the headphone outlet on your iPod. This means that the iPod doesn't sit as neatly in the stand but it's not a problem.
The sound quality is good, it could possibly be a bit louder but it is sufficient for what I need.
The power comes from 4AAA batteries or through a USB cable, whenever I have used it with batteries they tend to last a reasonable amount of time, however this will depend on how much you are using the speakers.
The speakers are easy to use and the biggest advantage is the price, they are great value for money and I wouldn't consider changing to any other speakers.
Summary: excellent value for money
