Not the greatest quality sound but convenient for portable use
on 7 June 2013
I have to say that the sound quality is not as high as might be expected from the blurb, at least for the kind of music I listen to, namely Renaissance polyphony & Baroque opera. There is that certain 'tinniness' there. As a general rule for portable sound I would prefer to listen to my iPod through a decent set of headphones as the sound quality is superior, but the main advantage of these for me would be in other situations where that is not convenient for example when I am in the bath. Nothing would beat my Bose docking speaker for sound quality but that is not an easily portable option.
These are wonderfully compact though so would be good for travelling. Both can be used in stereo via the supplied separate cable with two mini-USB connectors to either an iPod jack or laptop USB, or could be used singly with iPod with built in jack which stows away neatly in the bottom. The two units could be connected in series using the inbuilt jacks but there is no advantage to this given the stereo connector with this set. The USB connector is also used for charging. The two units have magnets in the bottom so they can be stuck back to back for convenient stowage. A carry bag is provided.
