I bought this to be a speaker for an old iPod that sites in a cradle and has an aux out and a power supply. It works for this purpose, and probably for this alone.

After a few weeks of use however we notices odd bursts of buzzing sounds -- we can't figure out why. The construction is quite flimsy, including the on-off switch. I wonder if the product we got is counterfeit. I think, even at a very low price, you're betting buying something else.

If you do buy this, note that the iPod it was designed for no longer exists. I used to have one, but Apple recalled mine and replaced it with a modern Nano. So it seems worthless.

HOWEVER it has an aux in. So that sounds like it would work with any peripheral. Alas, not quite.

This device is designed for the iPod 30 pin (old style) connector. The aux in just connects into the same path as the connector audio, and the power standard for that is higher than earphones. So if you run the aux in cable from an earphone output the audio will be very FAINT.

However, iPod CRADLE aux out is stereo system level, and that's what this device expects. So run the audio cable from your iPod cradle aux out and you'll be fine. Otherwise you'll be disappointed.

I ordered the miniblaster (2nd generation) for my husband for Christmas and it has incredible sound. I wanted to keep it for myself! The sound was awesome for such a compact portable unit. I thought he could use it while getting ready for work and bouncing from room to room w/o hooking and unhooking his IPod Nano. I love the fact it also comes w/ an adapter to save battery life. I just wish it came in other colors.....great job and great price. I can't wait till this Summer and try it at the beach!

Seems like the price has come down on this speaker, probably since the nano 2G is not so popular anymore. If you still have one, then this is the speaker for it. Really great sound for the size. Other comments about sound quality may not have read the instructions about adjustment. I am very satisfied.

If the sound quality that you're looking for can be equated with an old mini-transitor radio, you might be pleased. Even so, you would probably expect to pay around $15 for the product - not something in the $40 plus range! Like another reviewer, I had very low expectations for such small speakers but apparently not low enough. The speakers cannot handle bass at all and to avoid complete sound distortion you need to keep the volume very low which essentially forces you to literally be within a foot or two of the unit. Furthermore, there's no easy way to retreive your ipod once inserted! I feel I have been deceived by the 5 star reviews I used to make my purchasing decision and felt obligated to respond. The Miniblaster is a good concept poorly executed and I'm afraid I wasted my money.

These speakers are fantastic! I travel a lot on business. I also needed something to play my music for work outs at home. In the past, I tried 5 or 6 small speakers but the sound was always poor quality and never provided a full range. I was astounded when I first heard the sound with theses small speakers. They are far superior to much larger speakers I have used in the past. Great value for the money

This item is as neat as a pin! Very compact and fairly good quality sound reproduction - certainly good for this size output. Very pleased.

The sound is fine for small areas(Office, bedroom, etc.) If you want booming sound, hook the iPod up to your home stereo system.
