Disadvantages: not very loud, wire is small
The iStuff Companion speakers are a great addition to any music lover's collection. Practical and affordable, these speakers give you 800mw of sound for under £10.
They work straight out of the packaging, coming with a handy carry case as well. They are about the size of an iPod touch so you can easily carry them around wherever you go. The excellent design of folding out utilizes two speakers in one device. Another great feature is how the 3.5mm cable is wrapped onto the speaker, keeping it clean and tidy. However this cable is only about 15cm long which is a drawback but doesn't hinder the machine that much
For the price the plastic feels nice and weighty, not cheap as you might expect as if it will break in your palm.
It comes two colours - either black or white. I tested it with an iPod touch 2nd generation, which has a pretty quiet and poor speaker. Once I inserted this the sound was much clearer and crisper, providing some bass as well. For mp3 players without speakers this is the first device I would use. It's as loud as mobile phones but in my opinion provides a better listening experience. Do not expect to be blown away by the noise as the price may suggest, it will not really fill a room with blasting music but does its job
Another aspect of this speaker is that it doesn't need any batteries whatsoever. It runs off the device it plugs into. This made using it very easy and convenient.
Overall, I think its perfect for taking out and about as well as on holiday. For casual listening on a beach or in the car, this speaker fulfills its price tag admirably.
Summary: Fun portable speaker for all mp3 players
