The product is great at first I was worried maybe that the quality won't be to good but I used and I was amazed. It's loud has a great base and the battery life of the product is immaculate. Personally I would advise you to get this item because the quality is great. Gear 4 made a great product. I would say make sure you don't use the speaker to play music o loud because this can damage it and this can be a disadvantage to the product all in all it's great. I would say an advantage is that it's quality is beautiful and the disadvantage is that it can be crackled when played to loud which causes the speaker to mess up and maybe the bass will get damaged also so the quality will go down. Great quality product though tea other reviews before making your mind up.
I recieved this speaker as a Christmas present from my mother a couple of years ago when my old speaker broke. I had never been too phased by the whole angry birds but i still thought it was a snazzy looking speaker. I was skeptical about how the sound would be because i know many items like this are better for looking at then using for purpose. That said, it has a powerful Sub-Woofer for big bass and actually has a really good sound. The speaker has three controls, a power button (a small green light is activated when the speaker is on), a bass knob to turn up and down to your required bass level, and a volume level, for volume control!
The speaker comes with a cute little stand for you to stand your Ipod on while playing music, the only problem i found was that you have to put your ipod on upside down, otherwise where will the wire go? The stand wasnt something i used much and i have no idea where it ended up, but the rubber pads on the bottom stops it slipping on a hard surface.
The speakeris currently available for £39.99 on amazon. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod, MP3 and Smartphone devices with a 3.5mm jack.
Angry Birds has taken the world by storm and the game itself has recently found a small place in the archives of gaming history thanks to it's predecessors. With merchandise aplenty thanks to these colourful creatures, we now have the Angry Bird iPod Speaker, brought to us by Gear4, to keep us company in our homes.
I received this speaker as a Christmas present back in 2011 and was totally surprised by the amazing sound quality that it has to offer. Most docking speakers are pretty standard, but this little bird is a powerful piece of technology!
= Design & Durability =
The speaker is made from a hard plastic that no doubt protects everything going on on the inside; I haven't dropped it myself so I couldn't tell you how easily these things break, but according to some other reliable sources the speaker has survived through several falls and still works in perfect condition. The bird has a 3D face, making the look unique and quirky, and it has a flat bottom so that it remains sturdy on flat surfaces. Sound is released from the sides and the bottom of the speaker, emitting a clear, loud sound with an incredible bass feature. Although the speaker itself might feel a little heavy, it's easy to move around, but not necessarily travel-friendly. The packaging of the speaker is fun and stays in theme with the game - the box appears to be a crate that holds the (slightly smaller than a football) bird inside, with warnings written all over the box.
= Features =
The rear of the speaker includes bass and volume control, an AUX-in port, and the power button - simply plug it in and you're ready to go! It's compatible with all smart phones, MP3 players, tablets and devices that have a 3.5mm audio-out jack (the jack lead is included). The speaker comes with a docking stand that's compatible with all generations of Apple iPods, iPhones and iPads. This Angry Bird has 30W of powerful sound in a 2.1 system with an integrated subwoofer, giving you a clear, quality sound and a reveberating deep bass that never becomes distorted. However, this particular model does not come with a remote control like some sellers would have you believe, and it doesn't recharge your iPod/iPhone during use.

This speaker is completely hands-free so that you can simply plug in your device and go on to do other things while listening to your favourite music. The volume and bass is perfect for parties so you don't need to rely on quiet laptop/PC speakers or that CD player that you hate to lug around the house - no more constant CD changing with this Angry Bird!
As with most technology, I, personally, would always prefer and advise a brand new product. Second hand purchases can be faulty and some sellers have a habit of lying about just how bad those faults really are. At the time of purchasing this product it was retailed at £50 from HMV, but it is now available for up to £34.99 - or much less - from places such as Curry's, Amazon, and supermarkets like Asda. Some brand new Angry Bird speakers are still available all over ebay, too, and you can choose from 3 different designs: Angry Birds Red Bird, Angry Birds Black Bird, or the villainous Angry Birds Helmet Pig - all characters as seen on the popular game app!
I bought this speaker at House of Fraser during the Christmas period as a little present for myself. I had read reviews online previously and needed a new speaker. I am also a fan of the Angry Birds game, so thought it would be perfect.
I was absolutely right! The speaker comes in a rather amusing box, where red bird is apparently 'caged in'. The packaging was sturdy and secure but also did not require scissors to open which was a plus. There was nothing you had to put together or connect, and all you had to do was plug it in. It comes with a little stand for your ipod/mp3, but I don't really use that as its more convenient to just put it on the table. The cord on the charger for the speaker does not stretch very far, but it is not too much of a problem, as the speaker is stationary anyhow, so you could just add an extension chord if needed. The headphone/audio jack is a good length.
The speaker is small but it does pack quite a punch! The sub-woofer is surprisingly good for such a small speaker, and is very good for songs that have a low bass-line. I was very pleased with the quality of the sound, and I can plug in any of my appliances such as my iPod, mp3, laptop, etc.
I have not experienced any problems with it and it has always been a pleasure to use. Definitely a good purchase and would definitely recommend!
I've only recently got an iPod so was unsure was dockin station to get. These were currently quite expensive but have definitely gone down in price. I was goin to get 1 from hmv because they do look good I know your not ment to buy something in looks but I couldn't resist. I checked out some prices on the Internet and it was alot cheaper online. There are a few different designs to choose from aswell. I have also recently seen mini angry birds speaker which would be great for holiday. Then again the full size ones are not to big to be carried around. I was defo won over by the style cuz I think angry birds are great. They are really easy to use its self explanatory really. The speakers are brill aswell I was quite shocked how loud it went I was really impressed this a got to have would make a great present
I've seen these in hmv and a few other shops over the past year and I've always been tempted to buy one but never got around to it until lately. I bought this from www.amazon.co.uk for just 19.99 which I thought was a bargain considering I've been seeing this retail at £50/£60. I am an angry birds fanatic which I'm aware my sound really sad to the average Joe, so I'm not sure why I put this off buying for quite some time.
The design is pretty obvious really, it's the red angry bird. This is made of a thick plastic when I touch it, it feels really sturdy and good quality. The measurements for this are H 181 x W 175 x d 236 mm. It isn't too big that it can't fit on a shelf and it isn't too small so the sound will be rubbish. I have this on my shelves along with all my CD's and films and it looks quite good.
This doesn't have any features, it just have a power button, volume button and a sub woofer. You plug your ipod into it via the red wire and work all the tunes through your ipod. Which means someone as old as me can work this without any difficulties. I thought it might of charged my ipod at the same time like I have seen some of the others do but this one doesn't which is a shame.
I'm not too good with the technical wiz kid side of things but this has a large speaker located at the base of the bird. the speaker is 30 W, I don't know if this is good or powerful but for what it is, this drowns out my full house when turned up full with my Ipod on too.
This turned up to the max along with the subwoofer gives off a clear sound with no hint of any distortion. It's really clear so every song sounds amazing, especially at full blast. Overall this is a really good budget speaker and fits in great with all my angry bird items even if I'm not using this.
I was bought this Angry birds I pod speaker for Christmas 2011 because I no longer had any CDs, I just downloaded music onto my I tunes at the time so it was pointless having a big CD player taking up lots of space in my room. The angry bird at the time retailed at £50 - £60 but you can pick this up now for as little as £19 from places such as Curry's, HMV, Amazon and even some supermarkets have stocked these. You may be able to buy a used one from cash converters or CEX but when you can buy brand new for such a cheap price there's really no point. This is great for anyone who is an angry birds lover or for the lover of quirky items such as myself, if I didn't get this as a present I would of bought this myself since I stood in HMV with my own I pod on blasting out disturbed -down with the sickness. I turned a few heads and pretty sure I convinced some people to buy it that day!
=== Design ===
The exact size measurements for the angry bird are - H 181 x W 175 x d 236 mm. This makes it roughly the size of a football. This isn't completely round, it has a flat-ish bottom so it can sit on the table top without wobbling or rolling away. The whole I pod speaker is make of a sturdy plastic as is the face which is 3D. The eyebrows, eyes and beak have a good way of making it look angry. This is a must have for an angry birds fanatic, I'm not much of a fan with all the toys and accessories to go with this game but I believe this is really quirky and fits in perfectly with my room. This is small enough to move around, I'm so indecisive that it started off on my bottom shelf, worked it's way to the middle shelf, then my windowsill and now sits on top of my DVD player, because this doesn't weigh much it's easy to move.
=== Getting technical ===
I am in no way technically minded but the angry I pod station has one speaker built into it, the sound comes out of the bottom and the sides of the bird. The speaker power is 30 W. I don't know if this is good for the size of the bird or if it is naff but to me this is pretty damn powerful and loud. I'm a sucker for loud music,having my Ipod up full blast and then turning the bird up to full whack fills my house and the street with my awesome music which I'm sure isn't appreciated but I love it. The speakers deliver a clear crisp sound without any distortion despite how loud it is. To make this even better it's complete with a sub woofer, my favourite. I've found that the music sounds much better with this turned up full, without it the music sounds bland and like it hasn't be produced properly, so I have the bass turned up full every time and of course this doesn't cause any distortion.
=== Features and compatibility ===
The angry bird is pretty much just an angry bird. It is very basic and the only feature is has to offer is the sub woofer, to me this is perfect. I hate things were you can change every settings and tweak things around, I just want to plug my Ipod in and press play and have it working which is exactly what this allows you to do, stress free I might add. The bird is compatible with basically any electrical item with an I in front of it! such as Ipod, I pad, I phone but also with MP3 players and smart phones too. When I'm youtube-ing music I plug this into my laptop and that works fine too.
===Installing and using===
The installation couldn't be easier, just plug the power wire into the bag of the bird and into the plug socket and hey ho it's done, that is literally all you have to do, even though this comes with a life time supply of instructions they're all unnecessary and frustrating. It's also really easy to use, it has one button which is the power button, this will light up green when you've turned it on and the rest is done via your Ipod. There is only one downside to this speaker, it doesn't re charge your I pod like a lot of the other ones do, this is annoying especially if your Ipod dies while listening to music! If this charged my I pod I wouldn't need to drag my laptop out and listen to music via you tube.
=== Durable and cleanable ===
I've had this since Christmas 2011 and I am one of the most accident prone and clumsiest people in the world. Any time I have a drink in my hand or near me I seem to spill it and I've tragic with technology, I seem to just break everything without even doing anything, this poor bugger has been through so much but he still lives on! It's had drinks fall on it, a TV fell on it, it's been knocked off my shelf, candle wax has gone all over it! it has been bashed around more times than I'd like to mention but he's still alive and is in perfect working condition. This is made out of thick plastic, means you can wipe it with a damp cloth which I have to do often from all the spillages.
