Very cool with Great sound !!
F. Russo
The case flips open and becomes the "stand" for the speakers, but it doesn't lock down tightly.

The fit and finish of these speakers when folded for travel is amazing.

I'm so surprised I haven't heard of this iPod dock system before! I was set on buying a family member a Klipsch for Christmas. But when speaking to their significant other to confirm that was a good choice, they stressed it should be something that was portable. So while browsing a local box store, I found this. I happened to have my iPod with me so I stuck it in to listen to the sound. For what it is, it's pretty impressive.

Its sound doesn't compare to something like a Bose or a Klipsch, but the portability is awesome. It runs on batteries as well as AC, and it stores the remote on the underside of the speakers. To prop up the speakers, you simply turn the case out and it creates a pseudo-stand for the speakers. You don't have to prop up the speakers to hear sound either.

It's not a problem considering the quality of sound, and anything comparable would be just as heavy, but it's a beefy piece of equipment in terms of weight. It's not back breaking, but it's deceiving when looking at it. It certainly doesn't give the look or feel of cheaply made Chinese products. It's size, though, is perfect for a backpack.

Since they are into camping and doing things outdoors, this seems like a perfect solution for them. I hope they like this as their gift, and I hope they don't read this review (doubtful).

If you're looking for a portable system, I would recommend this over any other portable iPod docking system on the market.

I went to the local big box electronics outlet in search of a speaker system for my iPod Nano. I wanted portability, quality sound and a reasonably safe docking mechanism.
The big box had at least a dozen systems to choose from, ranging in price from $49 to $349. They carried the Bose system, the Apple system, several Logitech systems, Lansing, and other Griffin systems.
Sound varied, with the best sounding systems being the most expensive. However, many of the mid-priced systems ($129-$149) were respectable in fidelity.
What makes this system so attractive is not only the sound- which is substantial for it's small size, but also the killer portability. The stand wraps around the product and closes like a portfolio. The iPod can stay attached thanks to an adjustable mount that takes up any slack when the iPod is on the dock. There is also a remote control that stores on the backside of the unit, built-in, rechargable, lithium batteries, and a set of international plugs for traveling and using the device while travelling abroad.
It's rare that I come across a device that is so well designed and so slick that I have to have it. Griffin Journi certainly fits that bill.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this yesterday and upgraded to overnight shipping for 3.99 (advantage of being a Prime member). A Bose it isn't, but for the price and what I need it for it fits the bill.

If you're looking for a portable system that travels nicely and don't need top of the line audio quality this is for you! Don't get me wrong, the sound is pretty darn good, I just mention it for those whose top priority is sound. (Although I'm sure the price makes that pretty obvious).

The sytstem does fold much like a portfolio as another reviewer mentioned, and it has simple to use rubber function buttons on the sides. I love how the remote has its own compartment on the back for convenient storage.

This guy will easily fit into an overnight bag for travel taking up very little space. Oh, it also has 3 different adaptors for AC use in different countries.

I definitely recommend this product!

The Griffin Journi is pretty decent value for money. You will likely need to adjust the equalizer on your IPOD to reduce bass, then you have good sound quality for this very portable unit. Plug into AC or USB for power and once fully charge, you are good for hours of sound. You can operate the unit on AC as well...Indeed there are much better sounding units out there, like the BOSE sound dock, but they lack the portability of this unit and are considerably more expensive. So if you want a decent portable unit, this would be my 1st choice.

Although this is not the Bose system as far as sound quality, I am very pleased with it. Portability is what I needed and couldn't see spending 4-$500 dollars.

I shopped for a long time for the "right" iPod speakers. I had previously owned a portable set and I knew that I wanted them to be rechargeable this time, since the old speakers only lasted about four hours on a set of batteries. The battery life is much better than my previous speakers and the charger for the speakers is a usb charger. This is a nice feature because you can also plug your iPod into this charger and charge it directly. So you are basically getting an iPod charger for free.

The new speakers also had to have a remote, which the Journi does. The remote is also really responsive. It does not have to be pointed directly at the speakers to recieve commands. The remote attaches magnetically and the stand folds around the entire unit for travel, including the remote. The stand is also held in place by magnets when folded up, which keeps it from opening by accident. There is an adjustable piece of rubberized plastic behind the iPod that can be made to fit different depths for different iPods and give them support while in the dock. Even though the included legal documentation advises against it, I often travel with my iPod stored in the dock because it fits so snugly and securely. The fit and finish of these speakers when folded for travel is amazing.

These speakers also sound very good for their size and they are capable of getting very loud unlike some other portable speakers I tried. It was hard to find a set of speakers that is compatible with both the older and newer iPods. I own three different iPods (first gen Nano, 40GB iPod photo, and Touch) and they all work well in the Journi dock.

I only have two minor complaints.
