This portable speaker is more expensive than the iPod it’s attached to. At US$76.16 I couldn’t imagine grabbing this low-powered (0.7-watt) speaker and look the wife straight in the eye. Boy, if I did I’d surely get a black-eye for sure! LOL.
With recession hitting everyone worldwide ONLY the fashionista may have the “balls” to pull this purchase. Yuen’To’s Music Balloon speaker has a rechargeable battery that lasts about 2 hours. One of the features I like would be that it can just be used anywhere as it dangles quite well. It only needs to attach itself to your MP3 player’s speaker plug. But considering it’s a mono speaker system, sound quality may be a little AM-ish. That’s why I was freaked out to see the price at about US$80. This will be available by mid-February though, so if it catches your eye… get one.
