This product seems promising, and at a decent price. My only concern would be how well the speakers sound. I like the way the unit folds up into a tiny little box.

Pretty cool and the price is right—if only the stand folded out too—it looks to me like that’s a separate piece, when I went to their site.

And hopefully that stand is not JUST a stand—hopefully it uses the dock connector for audio and charging too. Otherwise, take the photo on this article and add a cable from the top of the iPod!

I also would like to see ultra-small speakers that could optionally run from the iPod’s accessory port. My Photo has power to spare.

Hello iPodLoungers,

In response to your questionning:

Lokai: The sound is more than decent and doesnt sound canny or garbeled. You wont be deceived by the output from these little speakers.

BIGP: no it doesn’t charge the ipod, there is only a stand for the iPod and no sync/charge cable/cradle.

Nagromme: the picture should indeed show the audio cable. There is a photo of the mini with the cable on the top

A. Cheng: :)

Best regards to all!

Hello All-

Just received my set of these speakers.  No special packaging and the iPod “stand” is loose in the box.  No instructions, but they’re not really needed.  Easy set-up and built relatively well.  Sound is very clear, but very little bass at all.  That’s a little disappointment, but I understand that it’s difficult to get much bass out of a package this small.

I was hoping that I would not have to buy the more expensive Altec Lansings or Bose, but I probably will in order to get the bass that I really want.

These make a nice little set to take on a trip and play in a hotel room or in a small space.  And the price is right…
