I am a true audiophile. But I also have a bit of a portable speaker fetish. I have a Tivoli iSongBook, a couple of Altec Lansing Inmotions, a Soundmatters FoxL, a Homedics JAM, and the larger Alpatronix X-tra Strong Bluetooth Portable Mini Capsule Speaker. When Alpatronix came out with this little speaker I had to check it out.
In general, the bigger, heavier and more expensive these speakers are, the better the sound quality. That said, this speaker is amazing. It is loud, clear and pleasing. It never seems to overload and distort. There is surprisingly good bass, and everything is balanced and clear. If you place the speaker in a corner, the room really plays well, and you can't believe it's coming from a speaker that fits comfortably in your pocket, or in a small pouch on a bicycle.
It's also loaded with features. There's a captive mini headphone cable stored in the base, another mini headphone cable attached to the mini usb charging cable, and a mini...

I needed a set of speakers to stream music from my phone (Nexus S 4G) while at work. All I knew was that I didn't want anything too large or that needed to be plugged into a power outlet. I stumbled across this set and have been pleasantly surprised. I tried these speakers on my desktop at home, and have been using them all day to listen to Pandora at work. They're much smaller than my old set of GE speakers, yet they have better sound. I was re-reading the product description which highlighted these having superior wattage and response range to comparable speakers. I'm no expert on speakers by any means, but I really do notice the difference. The highs and lows are a big improvement over my last set of speakers. Total volume is about the same (not overly impressive), but that's not important to me since i use these in a work environment. I have my own office, but still need to set the volume at less than 50% or else I'd disturb my co-workers. These speakers also look kind of cool...
