This has two mini speakers, not one like some, for stereo sound. I don't own an iPod [don't want one] but use it for my MP3 player which has a vastly different size and shape--it still fits snug and perfect! And, yes, I can still operate the controls with ease. In five months of frequent use, I have not yet needed to replace the 2 AA batteries!
Because of its design, I also use it as an external speaker with my laptop to boost the volume and quality when my family watches movies. Recently traveled with it, and was even more impressed--gave the perfect "bounce" [sound quality] in the vehicle's environment, and getting tossed around [okay, slammed] in Saturday madness had no effect whatsoever. Also discovered it to be rain resistant with speaker side down on same trip. After all of this, it still looks like it just was removed from the box.
Could also be used between two people with two headsets, and would be perfect for audiobooks, since headset quality and the spoken word don't always mix. If you use a mini MP3 player, there's room in there for your player AND mini flash drives to keep all your music in one place and change on the go!
My husband wishes he had this while he still suffered from his old job--frequent conference calls where he was only required to listen, no input needed, often occurring while in transit. He could've simply connected his cell inside, answered the call, and ended the call when done, with only a split-second push of a button instead of all the fumbling normally required. If you don't use a bluetooth, it could always be used for call monitoring or checking voicemails while traveling, too.
Of all the items I've ever bought in my life, or received as gifts, this product makes my top 3...and I use it with the other two.
1) it looks super small
2) I don't know if it will be able to do the job right.
I was wrong on both things.
This is a definate buy if you are using it just for you or it has 2 headphone jacks which is really cool cause I'm going on vacation with a friend so now both of us can listen to music.
I just got it today, but the sound quality is pretty cool and the case is hard solid.
My only slight complaint is that it is a little tricky to work the circle wheel, but that's basicly all for my complaints. It was kinda hard to figure out how to put it in, but once it was in, it fit nice and snug, and easy to get back out too.
Someone mentioned something about bulky? That comment made me nervous, but I bought it anyway and um, excuse me, but would you rather have something that is small and breakable and has no sound quality OR protection, or would you have this which I have to admit is bigger but has great protection at a rather cheap price?
I say this is a must-have for people who don't want actual speaker docks that are quite expensive and just want something to take around with them.
I am a 15-year-old teen who loves music, so I highly recommend this.
I personally think this is the best iPod product I have seen.
No it's Not BOSE, but it didn't claim to be. The sound is just fine. Not what you get from your iHome stereo at home unit. It sounds just fine for it's intended use.
The 80GB ipod fits quite secure in the unit. No movement at all. I will admit the adjustment of volume thru the clear plastic protector is not easy so I just set the volume first and all is well.
Very durable hard shell case. Has double earphone jacks do 2 could listen at the same time if you care to.
I looked at many portable speakers and this one was the best as far as also being the storage of the ipod and protecting it, two speakers, portable size, and not to be forgotten it is pink....need I say more?
