Slight distortion on full volume but just turning it down a little bit gets rid of that.
Great little amp ,just right for an iphone or ipod ,yea its only mono but hell it goes load for the size , one thing i wanted it for was for a practice amp for my guitar even tho has no guitar jack all i did was used a mini jack which came with the amp and used adapter you get with normal headphones ,and it worked with my strat and even a bass ,ok the bass wasn’t loud but gave a decant practice sound , so all in all really value for money amp , doesn’t look like a miniature marshall but was only half the price , rock on.
I bought this as a gift, they loved itdecent sound, looks really well built and feels it toowould highly recommend this as a decent gift for someone.
I bought this after *breaking* my stereo and i must say i was quite pleased and disappointed at the same time. It first seemed a very small amp in a very large box, but hearing it was a delight and reached a very good volume. Until it played one of my favourites. Knowing the song so well, i realised that this speaker was not as good as i had hoped, because it acted as one speaker that needed to be accompanied by another. What i mean is that it missed parts of the song, as if it should be playing through another speaker, like when you listen to music through one earphone. I suppose it is good value, paying about £20 for a speaker. But that is what you’re doing, buying one speaker. Now i just play music through my guitar amp (because i foolishly ignored the fact it could play music via the correct cable). So if you don’t mind only hearing certain parts of a song (before some of you leave a lame comment, yes i changed sound preferences, sound/mono etc, it always stayed the same) then this is a very good priced speaker for your mp3/laptop.

I got one years ago as a present and i was amazed at how awesome (and loud) the sound from it. I can’t talk this little speaker up enough. I got one years ago as a present and i was amazed at how awesome (and loud) the sound from it was. I haven’t seen it anywhere since and randomly decided to search for it on amazon. There’s still nothing wrong with the one that i already have after years of punishment, but i decided to buy another one just incase that day ever came. Do yourself a favour and just get one. I’ve tried many big named brand mini speakers for my ipod, but none of them go all the way up to 11 like this.
This is a good little speaker for the money. Yes the mono is annoying now and then and it does cackle like a baby but all in all. Good for the money, but only consider buying it if you just want to play music out of it when you’re doing stuff, if its for regular use with friends, find a different speaker.
Saw this while browsing through mp3 speakers and after buying the august mb300 music player. Very impressed with packaging and presentation. Having read other reviews i knew it was a mono speaker so i fished out my stereo to mono adapter. If you buy this speaker you simply must use an adapter as the sound is improved out of all recognition. Plugging it into my creative zen (you have to plug the adapter into your source device, it doesn’t work the other way round) i was very impressed once i had adjusted the output level on the mp3 player. You need to experiment with this to get the best sound. Once you do this the bass is very good for the size and midrange and treble are clear and powerful. I also tried it with a portable cd player, a phone and a laptop. It works particularly well when watching tv programmes on iplayer.
