3-0 out of 5 stars Ehh..
Well.. I got these speakers for my birthday.. Luckily I still have the receipt.

The sound quality is OK if you're sitting close by.Once you raise the volume everything sounds distorted.

My friend has the Logic3 I-Station iPod Dock and Speaker Station (also on amazon) and they sound a hell of a lot better than these.

Sucks really.. I got these because Altec is a good brand.Oh well..

4-0 out of 5 stars Color Me Impressed
Let's start with- This is not what I expected.Seriously, I was expecting much less from this thing.I ordered this because I was tired of using my iTrip with my current radio in my room.I like to just leave my iTrip in my car, and the iTrip doesn't have the good quality I would like in my bedroom at home.

When I got this in, I looked at it thinking it would be small sound, small everything really.But I was pleasantly suprised.The sound is quite full for the size of the unit.Now it is no Bose Sounddock, so don't expect lots of bass...actually there is NO bass in this little thing - I tried some current r&b and rap tunes and kind of laughed.But I still appreciate the value of these speakers because of the tiny amount of space it takes up, the good quality sound, the ease of use, and the portability factor.The sound is room filling, but no more than that.Don't expect to hear this thing jamming from across the house, but I'm not worried about that. I live in an apartment with a roommate, so I don't mind the smaller sound, she doesn't either.

Get these if you can't shell out $300 for the Bose Sounddock...you won't be disappointed

3-0 out of 5 stars Sacrifice sound quality for portability & trendiness...
OK, these are certainly better than those pathetic Bose iPod speakers that cost over twice as much---no surprise there, Bose is just one huge hype/marketing scam.

The question you need to ask yourself is, however, do you REALLY need this much compactness and portability?

Sure these speakers sound fine...if you are sitting within about 3 feet of them and have them at moderate volumes only, that is.

If you want more room-filling sound you're much better lugging around a pair of self-powered plug-in 2.0 or 2.1 computer speakers like the Klipsch ProMedia 2.0 or better yet find a boombox that has auxilary input plugs so you can plug your iPod into it (this may be hard to do since most boomboxes these days are so cheaply built).

Otherwise to be frank, you're better off investing in a nice pair of Sennheiser headphones.Itty-bitty flat speakers look cute but if you're serious about your music they just don't cut it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Travel Pool Side Speakers!
Pretty incredible sound for something as small and light as a hardback book.I have traveled to NYC, Australia, & Mexico now with these amazing speakers and I cannot go anywhere out of town without them.You no longer have to bring all the other chargers with you, this will charge your ipod while it it plugged into your hotel wall at night.We have taken them to the beach, pool, boat, etc.They make a great converstation piece as well. Highly recommend them!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Office/Travel Stereo
I've had this for a total of one week, and I can't imagine life without it. Absolutely perfect for an office or other smaller enclosed spaces, although I used it outside this weekend for yardwork, and it wasn't half bad. Yes, the Bose SoundDock has a richer sound (I've compared the two side by side offline), but it wasn't worth spending more than double on that device. Plus, it (the Bose) isn't as portable - this version collapses just as advertised, about the size and weight of a hardcover book. I travel a bit, and I can't wait to take this on the road.

If you're in the market for an iPod stereo such as this, look no further (and no, I don't work for Altec Lansing). ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing to write home about
this product offers poor quality sound

5-0 out of 5 stars Beyond Cool
The fact that this transmitter allowed me to choose from more than four channels was what caught my attention. Living and working in the NYC metropolitan area, I knew that there are very few, if any, channels that would be clear enough to use a transmitter successfully, so a transmitter that gave me a wide spectrum of channels to choose from was in order.

This thing works! I use it on a channel on which I get a faint to medium signal and it completely overrides that signal. It's easy to use. It's incredibly sexy - not clunky or awkward looking at all (it completely fits the profile of the mini). It gets attention from everyone because it's just so cool. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars IFYOUNEEDPORTABLE
I wish I had gotten the larger system instead of the mini,but far from being dissapointed the sound quality is good.If you are traveling ,these are your choice.Small,easy to stow ,and you have sound.Take's battery's and come's with every converter for international travel.I like it.

4-0 out of 5 stars For a compact travel system, the iMmini is hard to beat
I needed a compact travel speaker system for my iPod Mini. After looking at the options, the iMmini speaker system seemed to be the best choice. It is very small, sturdy and lightweight, which makes it a perfect choice for travelers. It also sounds pretty good for as small as it is. It does get a bit distorted at higher volumes, but tweaking the iPod Mini EQ settings can usually help in that area. It's not loud enough to fill a room with sound, but it works perfect when sitting at a table having drinks or sitting out on a beach, etc. I'm taking mine to Costa Rica with me (along with several fresh batteries), and it's not going to make much of a dent in my luggage space...and that is exactly why I picked the iMmini. It also looks pretty stylishwith the silver iPod Mini. It's not a perfect sound system (especially if you are looking to blast the tunes like a boombox), but it's definitely a great choice if size and portability are desired. It's also worth noting that the iMmini works well with the iPod as a travel alarm clock unit. It may not be for everyone, but it's working out really well for me.

3-0 out of 5 stars AVERAGE
This system is certainly better than the JBL onstage docking speaker system, however it also has its drawbacks.

Pros:very compact, user friendly, portable.
Cons:eats batteries, lacks a remote, sound quality is average.

If you can afford the Bose ipod base speaker, you'll love it.It's worth the extra cash.Sound is incredible.Comes with a remote the size of a credit card.

I have all three...the Altec Lansing is better than JBL, not as good as the Bose.

2-0 out of 5 stars My experience may be unique but
.... maybe because it's first generation;

(1)It's a complete battery hog in spite of A-L's claims for long life.AA's last a couple of hours at most.Get rechargeable batteries, but even then you may have problems
(2)9 volt power plug-in doesn't work.I Had to call A-L for a replacement
(3)I bought some rechargeable high-power NiMH batteries at the suggestion of A-L customer support.It' still not enough power.The unit auto shuts-off after 3 minutes.

(4)It's going back to A-L for replacement.They are giving me a full replacement.Hopefully, it will work better.

(5)Sound is very good...when it works

A-L support was great, but overall, I am not happy with this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Travelling
I just bought a Sony DSC-T7 and a 30GB iPod Photo in preparation for a trip around the world. This connector is my dream come true! You just plug the connector into the iPod and plus in your camera via USB. The iPod just prompts you to import and takes it from there.

Your photos are imported and converted into a regular thumbnailed iPod photo album that you can browse and view. I was happy to discover that movies are copied over too! You can't view the movies, but at least you can store them. When you're ready, just connect the iPod to a computer via USB and copy over the folders with your original image and video files.

It takes awhile and does require you to run the iPod on its battery (since it occupies the power port). I considered the Epson P-2000, which is faster and has a bigger screen. However the iPod is less expensive, less than half the weight, a smaller form factor, capabable of more storage (30 or 60GB), and a way better music player that I will actually use on a regular basis for more than just temporary photo storage. If I was a photo professional out on shoots I might go with the Epson, but I'm more of an average joe that's just looking for a travel photo solution... and the iPod Photo is perfect for me!

Paired with my DSC-T7, we're talking super-small and ultra-portable. Everything I need for photos and music on this trip I can fit in 2 pockets.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Idea... Bad Engineering
The Apple Ipod Camera Connector screams intelligence on the part of Apple, but falls far short.DO NOT think of using this for any real photography purposes or with pictures above 3MP in size.To transfer 1gb Sandisk II ultra CF card takes roughly 45 minutes, and kills almost all your Ipod's battery (not to mention the impact on your cameras battery for that 45 minutes).

Its a great idea, but the ipod battery is not originally engineered to support such a power supply, and does not stand up to heat...

Look elsewhere for a portable harddrive to store pictures, such as Epson P-2000.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome accessory for your photo ipod
While $30 for a little connector seems like a lot, this little device works great.Snap it onto the bottom of your photo ipod, and then attach your digital camera's usb cable and download your photos off of your memory stick and onto your ipod.You can review the pictures (although not in a slide show) and copy them to your hard drive later.This is a great setup for vacation or any time you want to take a lot of pictures and are away from your home computer and unable to copy the pictures off your memory stick.I will use it a lot! ...

Amazon.com Product Description

If you thought your Apple iPod was just an MP3 player, you're in for a surprise: Griffin Technology's tailor-made iTalk plugs into the top of your iPod and turns your digital music player into a world-class voice recorder with literally thousands of hours of recording time.

With iTalk you can record seminars, meetings, classes, notes in your car, songs in the woods, whatever your life or imagination dictates. iTalk's built-in monaural microphone is designed to record crystal-clear audio from sources up to 100 feet away, and onboard Automatic Gain Control ensures optimal recording levels. You can even connect an external microphone directly to iTalk for greater flexibility.

iTalk's built-in speaker is great for playback of voice memos. You can also use iTalk as a mini-speaker for your iPod's music files. Play your favorite audio book through iTalk or listen to a downloaded seminar. You'll never realize how much you've missed a built-in speaker--until you have one.

There's a stereo headphone jack too, of course. It includes an iPod passthrough circuit so you can monitor your voice recording or listen to your music without removing iTalk. You can even download your recordings to play back on your computer. ... Read more

  • Includes a .125-inch minijack input for use with an external microphone (not included)

3-0 out of 5 stars Useful for voice memos
I bought the iTalk to take memos when I'm out in the field. Camera in one had, iPod in the other. I read the reviews first so knew it would be risky but it sounded ok for my uses and I got it cheap.

* Files are about 1 minute per Mb, stored as wav.
* Sound quality is understandable but not as good as AM radio.
* For a fully charged iPod, I got about 90 mins recording before the battery showed empty.

Pros

* Recording works fine, and I can dictate captions for photos as I think of them on site. Typically these are 1-2 minutes at most. I have also made an hour-long recording as a test without problems. I tried recording conversation in a cafe but it picks up too much background to be understandable.
* The best feature for photo memos is that files are time stamped, so I copy each memo to the same folder as my photos (which are also time stamped) making them easy to match up.
* iTalk can take an external mike which cuts out background white noise.
* Files are automatically sync'd to iTunes Voice Memo list and stored in the iTunes unknown artist folder. (If you have this feature set in iTunes)

Cons

* Software glitches randomly lock up the iPod under almost every condition except for the initial condition (more about this below).
* The iTalk covers the iPod lock. This is a serious design flaw given how quickly the battery drains. It means that you can't carry the iTalk connected to the iPod and easily lock the keys.
* The line that takes a mic also doubles as a line out. If headphones are connected and you try to record, the recording light shows but nothing is recorded. It creates a file but it's empty.

Hints

Prevent freezing: If the iTalk is in place when the iPod is turned on, it will often freeze. To prevent freezing, remove the iTalk before turning on the iPod every time. Under these conditions I've never had it freeze. If the iPod does sleep, to prevent freezing, remove the iTalk then insert it again (i'm not sure how often this is necessary, but I haven't had to reset the iPod since the first day).

Reset: To reset the iPod, remove the iTalk and hold down the iPod's MENU and PLAY '>||' buttons for 10 sec. I used this 5x the first day with the iTalk but haven't needed it since.

Locking: Slide a laminated card (my credit card is too thick) between the iPod and iTalk to lock, or carry the iTalk separately (annoying, but not as annoying as rebooting every time).

Saving: It's not enough to pause a recording, you need to remember to stop and save it before removing the iTalk. The MENU button will also save files.

Finding the files on PC: I have iTunes set to automatically sync files. To find the files in iTunes, look under the Voice Memos list. It's a trifle disconcerting when they disappear from one list and appear elsewhere unless you're prepared for it. On my PC, they can also be copied from
iTunes music/unknown artist/unknown album

Battery: I tried letting the battery run out while recording. It ran for ~50 minutes while the battery was showing empty then shut down with no warning. The file appears to have been saved ok.

Battery life: Check out the apple web page for battery tips (...) (I know this comment is outside the scope of iTalk, but if you use a voice recorder with the iPod, you're going to be dealing with battery issues.)

Summary

Despite the glitches, I like having a handy memo system and will keep it til something better turns up. Doesn't sound like Belkin is any better in terms of software glitches or battery life, but it looks like it would be possible to lock the iPod with the Belkin in place which would be a plus. The minus is that Belkin doesn't take an external mic.

1-0 out of 5 stars Griffin dropped the ball with the iTalk
I owned the belkin voice recorder then somehow lost it and then I saw ads for the iTalk. Since I owned the iTrip and was happy with it, I thought this was a blessing in disguise. I'm a college student and record my lectures, for the most part the Belkin voice recorder worked well but the iTalk claimed to have auto gain control etc. I'm buying another Belkin. I've recorder a week of lectures already and not a single one has come out with the iTalk. I know it's not the lecture halls because the Belkin voice recorder worked just fine. I don't know where to even begin about how bad the iTalk has worked so far. All my lectures sound like the beach. I cannot hear any voices at all. Just hours and hours of horrible background noise. It obviously does not work for lectures as claimed. Go with Belkin for once

1-0 out of 5 stars save your money
this 50 dollar (after taxes s/h etc...) piece of cheap garbage is a big waist of money. distorts even if just recording your own voice talking. griffen advertises that you can use this product to record song ideas. tried that. all i hear is a muffled distorted version of what i played. the sounds quality is horrible. i get better quality recordings on my pocked pc's built in mic. bottom line.... DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!! you will feel ripped off... i certainly do. i'd give the iTalk negative stars if i could. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
Before I used to think that i would be worth the prive that it was set at, I was wrong. I mean this does serve its purpose and does everything it says, but it is just too overprivced. I could see this at $15, maybe $20, but $40 is just outragous. If you are planning on buying an ipod, buy a 20 or 40 gig, if you really want this. Sepreately, it is just a waste of money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice work if you can get it
Let's put it this way: I think the dock is great. Aesthetically is much more pleasing to see my iPod propped up securely in this sturdy little accessory. Functionally, the line out jack is great for hooking up to a stereo. And for the sake caution, I prefer having a spot to place this pricey little unit in, rather than just leaving it lying down, just waiting for the first inadvertant soda can to be set on it, or crushed under a stack of books, and so on.

The price doesn't really bother me; it could be lower, but it's not prohibitive, considering how much you just paid for your iPod. And that's why overall, I'd give the dock 4 stars...

... But not 5. Because having said all of that, it's really sort of chintzy of Apple to make one have to pay extra for a basic component and, when all is said and done, one you don't necessarily actually need. So, in the end, it's nice, if you can get it -- but if not, you're not missing much.

2-0 out of 5 stars too expensive, but...
For 40 bucks you get the dock, which is nice. For 75 you get the dock, a Monster Cable audio connection cable with RCA connectors; the Apple USB-iPod cable and the Apple power adapter. Apple calls this its stereo connection kit. In May 2004 it's $5 cheaper on Amazon than at apple.com. Seventy-five bucks is too much for this, too, but bought separately, I know these items would cost quite a bit more than $75.

You do need the dock to use the line-level output to your stereo. While it's true the variable output headphone connection works fine, the line-level output provides higher fidelity and eliminates the risk of overloading the inputs on your pre-amp or receiver.

If you don't have an iPod yet and you love music, especially if you travel on airplanes, you need one. Just know that podding, like most other things, is a bit of a money pit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Probably not worth it, but handy
The iPod dock may not be worth the price - but it *is* handy if you are into convenience. My iPod came with a bundled dock and I keep in on my desk for charging/syncing.

The dock is well designed - seems solidly built and is nice and small. It's also nice how it doesn't have any cables hanging out of it like most docks seem to - you just plug in the regular iPod cable to the back and that's it.

I've seen people who have two iPods leave one dock in the living room by the stereo equipment. The audio out jack on the back of the dock allows you to hook it up to your stereo and you can use the dock cable to plug in to the AC charger. This lets you quickly snap the iPod into its dock to charge and listen to music - however, if you only have one iPod, you'll want to buy an additional cable along with the extra dock so you don't always have to unplug it to sync with your computer.

If you're not feeling cheap, I guess it's handy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Other functionality
The iPod dock does more than just make the iPod "stand up." It also provides a line-out which is a much better way of connecting it to a steroeo sytem than going through the headphone jack. Pricey? Yes, but worth it for some. ... Read more

In the car, on a plane, at lunch, or in the library, you'll always be ready to listen to favorite music and movies with a companion using Monster Cable's trusty iSplitter minijack "Y" adapter. The device features a single male .125-inch stereo analog jack that splits its signal to feed two female .125-inch stereo analog outputs suitable for two sets of headphones or, if you want, a single headphone as well as a stereo minijack interconnect (not included) for passing audio to your PC or other device.

Specially designed to accommodate Apple iPods, iBooks, and Powerbooks, the durable adapter is gold-plated at both ends for maximal signal conductivity and minimal susceptibility to audio-degrading corrosion. And it's every bit as easy to use as it looks: just plug the male end of the iSplitter into the headphone jack on your iPod, iBook, Powerbook, or other entertainment device, then plug your headphones into the other end, and hit "play."

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple solution with great design/aesthetics
OK, this is a splitter. You can buy a cheap one anywhere but this one is well-made. The design matches the iPod well but it's functional as well. The black circle is a rubberized material with ridges that provide a good place to hold the splitter while you plug or unplug headphones. It works great.

I bought the splitter to use with a laptop playing DVD's while on vacation so that my wife and I could both listen with headphones (extremely important not to wake kids, especially while trying to enjoy a quiet moment on vacation). It works well on the plane too where you must use headphones to not disturb other passengers.

5-0 out of 5 stars SWEET!!!!
This thing is sweet, it works great to play your ipod through your stereo!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars IPOD RETURN POLICY is sorta SHORT!!
Okay. Here is a write up, that I did, on the comparisons/contrasts on MP3 players. Mainly, the Harddrive versions (I.E. Rio Riot/Apple IPOD -both of which I own) and the flash memory type... (I.E. Memorex 3642 Mp3 Player, of which I own as well).
What prompted this little jaunt (of which you may send to as many people as you like) My $499 Apple IPOD died during a sync last month. Just me copying files over to it, and the battery ran out of juice. I would have not attempted to copy music had I known the battery was low, but the battery read FULL STRENGTH. Anyhoo, I called Apple, they said return it for maintenance.

I did. Sent it back.

They returned it, still broke.

To my suprise, there is only a TEN DAY return policy.

TEN DAYS.

I did not realize this at all... and it was a costly realization.

So, after a month or so of messing around trying to find another MP3 player... I decided to go with a flash memory MP3 player, the ones that use memory sticks.

SO, here are the pro and cons of these devices.

Pro's for the Memory Stick Mp3 players

-Cheaper. WAY CHEAPER than Hard drive types.

-If you go into music match and file convert to MP3 Pro and shrink the size of your MP3 to like, say 3o percent... you can really make a good Kompression. Example. My Memorex MP3 player has 32mbs of memory on board. It is expandable to 256mb. 32 mb will basically let you put one cd's worth of music. It is easy to put music on and off of them, due to your computer reading the USB as just another hard drive, so you drag and drop to put on, delete them to take them off. But, after you shrink your files to MP3 Pro 30 percent, you can put twice as many. So, basically a 256mb chip will allow me to put 208 songs on my little less than palm size MP3 player. And it wieghs like 3 ounces.

- More on memory. These little chips are the size of the upper part of your thumb, at least my thumb anyway. They come in 128mb, 256mb, 512mb and even though there aren't any MP3 machines out there to handle them YET, you can even buy a 1.5gig thumb size chip thingy. Considering the size of the chips and the shrinking kompression I told you about earlier, I could shrink my whole KOLLEKTION down to 10 of those 1.5gig chips. At the current shrink rate I am at 5 DVD's, which are way bigger and more fragile than these little chips.

- Not as fragile as hard drive type. You can drop one of these chips and not scratch it. I wouldn't stomp on one with my foot, nor get one in water, but they are encased in plastic. Ruggedish.

- Batteries last for like two days. There isn't much going on here, no moving parts, no laser or hard drive to put power to. Most of these flash Memory types have a single AA battery. I use a rechargeable type, so we are talking very low cost here.
In comparison to the hard drive types, where you will get a solid 8 hours of playing, this really whupps up.

- Size. Small. Very small. Mine is three inches by three inches. A square. But, you can get smaller ones. And the memory chips that go in them are the same ones you use for your camera. And you can put files on them. If you want to put a word doc on your memory chip, you can. Your Mp3 won't recognize it, but it is nifty storage.

COMPARISON/CONTRAST

- Size does matter. In the case of hard drive Mp3 players... lets face it, you can, if you so chose to, put a library of congress on these monsters. They are the caddilacs of the hand held devices, and guzzle batteries like gasoline. But when it comes down to it, size is the only thing they have going for them. I don't mean to downplay the hard drive types, but don't drop them, don't shake them, and after shelling out $499 to Apple you might consider insurance. Apple doesn't care about you or your apple after 10 days of ownership.

- Price/Komparison. IPOD ran me $499 bucks. My memorex MP3 player ran me 45 dollars. The 128 memory chip runs you 50 bucks. Owch. There really isn't a comparison to the two. The memory stick Mp3 players just kick butt on this issue. And, you get MORE than a ten day return policy, since you buy these things at Target/Wal Mart etc...

So, that is my review in a nutshell
*************************************

Not completely sure why I am getting such a roasting on this review. I am only reporting what happened to me, and how I bought another product and compared the two.... I am not trying to change anyones mind, but letting someone know what happened to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars not just for the ipod!
This is a simple minijack splitter that takes one female 3.5mm stereo minijack and turns it into two! Wallah! You can use this anywhere a headphone jack exists. Use it on your laptop computer, your discman, walkman, mp3 player, even the soundcard on your pc - it doesnt matter it's just a splitter.

In typical monster style the splitter is made of the highest possible quality and offers excelent performance. It's also stylish, although it is made to fit with the iPod/iBook design scheme.

Bottom line, this type of splitter is ideal for gadget finatics and people who travel a lot and like to bring along thier music (unless you dont ever have the need to share). With this you can allow two pairs of headphones to be plugged into one discman, laptop, mp3 player, etc.

If you've ever wished you and your friend could both plug your headphone into your laptop so you could BOTH watch (and hear) a DVD on a bus trip this is the solution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great.
This is ideal for the new iPOD you want to share with a friend. As usual, the sound quality on the Monster product is superior. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent iPod doohickey...
I bought this for my 15GB iPod and it fit like a glove, the clear plastic covers the screen and protects it nicely (no scratches so far). 99.9% of the iPod is protected and the sides are a nice grippy rubber. The arm band that comes with works like a champ and I use it to run with my ipod. The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is because one of the velcro straps that secure it over the top of the iPod covers the "Hold" switch.
It does have a square hole in the bottom so I havent had to remove it from the jacket yet which is nice. It's not leather but it looks nice so spend the extra cash, you wont be sorry. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't use Shuffle lanyard when using this skin.
What this product description doesn't mention is that you must use the included Speck USB cap when using the Skin Clear. The ball-bearing mechanism of the standard Shuffle USB caps do not engage when the Skin Clear is installed on the Shuffle. Since the Speck USB cap does not have a lanyard string, you're out of luck if you use the lanyard as I do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Protection
This clear case gives you good protection without adding much weight or bulk.Its very hard to tell that the ipod is even in the case unless you are holding it your hand.One disadvantge is that the case makes it diffcult to turn the ipod on and off.Besides that all the other buttons are easy to use.I would recomend this case to anyone who wants to protect their ipod from scratches a dings. ...
