The volume controls are very easy to use, and I can't quite understand any complaints about them - you simply tap on them repeatedly to incrementally change the level up or down. The unit is solid, and a little heavier than i anticipated, but that can only helps the bass end I think, and there are no rattles when playing at high volumes, and let me tell you, this can really kick it out, but realistically, you'd probably only use it at half to 3/4 volume for a more than adequate volume for most uses.
Sound quality is retained at lower volumes also. The stereo image is adequate - the speakers are only 6" apart afterall!
I have noticed the same hiss that someone else mentioned (either on this or the white version), but have also noticed this is only when the screen on my mini dims! - I set it to not go off, and there is no hiss at all! - a quirk to be sure, but not enough for me to send it back, since it scores highly in all other aspects.
If you want a true hi-fi sound, then spend a few hundred on a hi-fi with big speakers and a quality amplifier, but if you want portability and power for your ipod, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a solution with comparable quality as cheap, and in fact, I have heard less quality from some hi-fi units to be honest.Read more ›
They are really compact and lightweight and are fect to take with me. People have commented on its plasticy look but I'm not so sure about that and do quite like the look of them. Theres even a neon light in the back. Be realisitic here, you're not buying the top of the range speakers with all the gizmos and so they're not going to be the most stylish things ever, but I think they look good enough.
People have also reported concerns on here regarding the volume dials. I happen to like the "buttons" they are quite sensitive, but you soon get used to it. Would be nice if you had a volume indicator, but you definetly know what top volume is!
I also here the hissing sound when music isn't playing which is a bit of a worry, and this isn't removed when you place the backlight on permanent or not at all as someone on here suggested.
A potential problem might be the fact that they work on the mains and not batteries.Read more ›

When first switched on this sometimes has problems with the volume, as you can't turn it up and have to unplug bits and plug them in again to get it to work. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Gina Birks
I bought this item years ago and it is still a perfect little speaker. Only issue was that it will not work with batteries alone and must always be plugged in, which is a little... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Minnie
