There was a time, before iPods, when we would put a CD in our big home stereo, sit down, relax, and listen to music. What a concept—listening to music, out in the open. That has mostly gone away.

Genius SP-U115 USB Speakers — Review

On March 13, 2013, in Audio, Review, Speakers, by Julie Kuehl

Genius SP-U115
Company: Genius
Version: SP-115
Compatible with: any computer (or device) with a 3.5mm audio jack
Requires: USB port for power
Price: $12.99 (on Amazon)

Proving once again that you get what you pay for, the Genius SP-115 speakers are a low-cost set of speakers for your computer. While these will work with the Mac on your desk, I think they are better suited to being travel companions where the price makes them almost disposable.

The Coby Vitruvian is made for iPod and iPhone, as well as other MP3 players. It’s compatible with iPods that go back as far as the 3rd generation, so it’s a safe bet that your iPod will work with the Vitruvian. I tested my iPhone 3GS, first generation iPod Touch, and 60GB iPod Video (now known as iPod Classic).
