    Hi Guys

    Quick thanks for this site, its really helping out a non techie get to grips with my new iPad 2.

    Anyhoo - Im off on holiday and some of you guys pointed me in the right direction of an earphone splitter (Belkin Rockstar 5 way) - which is awesome by the way.

    Im now after a portable speaker(s) for the iPad 2. Now these will only be used whilst we're getting ready in the room or possibly around the pool, so they do not need to be all singing all dancing. Something around the £20 mark?

    Have you guys purchased anything similar? Ive looked at these and it seems ok, but thought Id ask you guys

    Just picked up x2 of these from Amazon at £10 each - read nothing but superb reviews on these bad boys and they look the part.

    Thanks Samurai.......

    Having received these speakers, I am truely amazed.

    The size is very small and at first glance you think the sound will be absolutely rubbish........but its amazing.

    They are cheap as chips (I paid just over £10 each inc delivery from Amazon). I intend to use them for my iPad in my room on holiday. But the quality is soo good (crystal clear and nice bass too) that I will happily use them in the home instead of purchasing an expensive iPad dock with speakers.

    A must buy for any laptop/iPad/iPod etc.........

    For the price they look great, a lot of mixed reviews on Amazon, quality of build mostly, not sure what folks expect for that low price but I only use my blue took portable speaker from SoundMatters.

    Expensive, yes, but the very best in my opinion and no cords, I have enough cords!

    I have used these speakers for a while for my iPhone, great little device very handy for out and about and on holidays. Sound quality is great as is battery life.
