Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod
Company: iLuv
Model: iSP100
Price: $24.99 (a little less on Amazon at press time)

If I’m driving more than 15 minutes I like to listen to podcasts on my iPhone. However, I don’t have a USB or auxiliary port in my car, therefore I need to attach a speaker to my phone. The speaker I used to use wasn’t loud enough, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to review the iLuv Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod.

The iLuv Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod (iLuv PS) is small enough to carry in a purse, bag, or backpack, but has surprisingly good sound. Granted, it’s not going to replace a stereo speaker system, but for casual listening in the car or by the pool, it’s a good choice.

SuperTooth HD
Review

On September 6, 2011, in Audio, iPhone, Navigation, Review, Wireless, by Mike Breed

SuperTooth HD Review
Company: SuperTooth
Price: $129.00 USD

As a commuter with a fairly long drive to work each day, I often find myself in situations where I need to use my iPhone while driving. Aside from the fact that using a cell phone while driving can be dangerous, it is also illegal to do so in New York State. Utilizing a Bluetooth handset and going hands-free is the only safe and legal option for motorists needing to use their cellular devices in my area of the country.

I’m not a big fan of in-ear Bluetooth devices. I find them uncomfortable and distracting, and that’s not a situation I want myself in while driving. The SuperTooth HD speaker phone seems to fix that dilemma with its visor-mounted handsfree system.

i.Sound Concert To Go
Review

On June 12, 2007, in Dock, Review, Speakers, by John Nemerovski


Concert To Go
i.Sound

Price: $135
isound.net

Hearing is believing. Concert to Go is the best one-piece audio system of the iPod generation. If it cost twice as much as $135 US, it would still be superior to its competitors. Every college dorm, kid’s bedroom, and urban/suburban kitchen should be endowed with one. We’ll abbreviate it as C2Go in this review.

I brought my white C2Go unit into a crowded Apple retail store one busy afternoon, and quickly compared its sonic output to Apple’s overpriced $350 iPod Hi-Fi single-purpose speaker box. Just as quickly, I was gone, convinced the i.Sound is better. You can buy nearly three iPod shuffles with the $200 difference in savings.
