Customer Review

on 19 October 2007
The first thing to strike me about the Creative Travelsound was how attractive, chunky and apparently well made it is, a relief considering the price, which was getting on for as much as that paid for the compatible Stone Plus player.

The unit has a neat little stand and its own power switch, allowing the speakers to be used either actively with the supplied AAA batteries or passively via the MP3 player itself (which is not recommended as this drains the player's own battery unnecessarily).

The sound quality is fine to my untrained ear although, obviously, much depends on the bitrate at which the player's tracks were themselves recorded.

One thing I find strange is that when the MP3 player is docked into the speakers (through the very solid jack connexion and rubber grips), it is impossible to access its own power switch, which also doubles up as the pause button, and this can be something of a nuisance.

Overall, though, this quirk aside, I am so far very pleased with this mini speaker system.
