Great Speakers! Great Price!, 11 Sept. 2008
Having bucked the trend and bought a Sony MP3 player (for the far superior battery life) I was disappointed that even Sony themselves do not make a relatively low priced dock / speakers for their own players but do make Ipod compatible ones (?! - go figure).
I searched everywhere for a decent set of small speakers to use in the kitchen and having read a few reviews I decided upon these ones from Philips and boy am I glad I did!
For the size and price I am genuinely blown away by the quality of this unit. The sound is crystal clear when playing tracks ripped at 128kbs.
Let's face it you won't be replacing your home stereo with these but they are well worth the money if you want to listen in the kitchen or on the move. They take 6 AAA batteries which I've not tried yet but the included mains adaptor is a handy addition as is the travel pouch. The standard 3.5mm jack is on a rather short cable but that tidys away inside the battery compartment when they're not in use - clever, simple design.
