I wanted a speaker that would play my music from the Ipod loud enough to listen to with decent sound quality. I listen to a variety from Motorhead to Frank Sinatra but more on the 'heavy side'. I did not expect too much from this speaker, I was reasonably happy with the Nokia MD8 speaker I had previously bought but it was quiet. THIS IS NOT QUIET, THIS DOES NOT DISSAPOINT. IT HAS A MUCH BIGGER SOUND THAN SHOULD BE POSSIBLE FROM A SMALL PACKAGE. It is not a full blown mains operated 100watt Ipod dock, it will not shake granny's teeth out but it is very impressive! I can annoy the wife with it!!
I would not change this speaker, it is everything I wanted, I can now listen to my Ipod in the bath (me in the bath not the Ipod!!), hear every word, or chord and not have to trail mains leads into the bathroom. MUCH SAFER!
