You can't get a quart into a pint pot
on 8 September 2010
This item looks quite stylish in a shiny black plastic way, it seems reasonably solid though I would not rate it's chances with my ten-year old. Comes with a mains charger or can use batteries, so the price seems reasonable. However, despite the reviews, the sound is what you might expect from something this small, i.e. tinny and not loud enough to be practical - a quiet conversation completely drowns them out. To be fair, they are intended as a portable solution, but be aware that the sound quality is nowhere near what you would expect from say, a portable radio, or the cheapest CD player you can buy. Until someone comes up with a better portable solution I'll stick with earphones - the ones that came free with my phone sound infinitely better.
