Advantages: Good for kids, saves your mp3 getting wet
Disadvantages: Bad qaulity sound and signal, eats batteries
A waterproof speaker is what I was after at a cheap price...this seemed to fit the bill. At £14 the iDuck speaker was a bit of an impulse buy. It's very cute so would be ideal for kids but I just got it because of the price. The idea is to protect your iPod/mp3 player...you plug your device into the 'egg' whcih then sends a wirerless signal to the 'duck' that you have in the bathroom.
AS I said before this uses wireless radio technology to transmit your music from the egg to the duck. The sound quality is poor, as you would expect but for me in the bathroom isn't where I strive to listen to good quality music. The egg take 3 AAA batteries and the duck takes 2 and my god do they hammer through them...I think the low cost has been offset by the price of batteries. It is effective to about 2 meters which is a bit useless if you actually want to have your mp3 player outside the bathroom. For me the usage of this has been hankered by constant bad signal fuzzing mixed with the battery running out. You can change the volume on the unit and it gets to a reasonable level. The duck floats in the bath which for my little sister is very amusing but for me the novelty soon wore off.
I only now use this device when my little sister comes over, it now sit gathering dust in the under sink cupboard. Sound quality is poor and so is the signal and it eats batteries. The novelty really didn't do it for me...but i suppose as a bloke i'm not the target audience...I have since resorted to turning my hi-fi in my room up really loud and leaving the bathroom door open.
Summary: The novelty soon wears off
