===============================================

I bought these portable Sony speakers for my brother when he travels. They sound "good" if your expectations are not too high. He likes them and hasn't had any problems at all as far as I know. The form factor is nice. When folded they are about the size of a CD walkman.

I'm very impressed with the Altec Lansing iPod speakers. They sound
surprisingly good, especially in the bass, for a tiny speaker. Not only are
they great travel speakers but they also dock elegantly with an iPod and
replace the standard iPod cradle.

The only downside is the price which is $150.
