iPad travel speakers
English

Morning!

 

colleague at work has just asked me to recommend a set of travel speakers for an iPad. Budget is up to £150 max, and they'll need style as much as substance as it's retirement gift.

 

Any suggestions?

Separate speakers or a dock?

RE: iPad travel speakers

I think either to give her a couple of products to look at, they will need to be suitcase friendly though. 

 

It's not something I've ever looked at buying so I have no clue where to start.

Take a look at Philips Fidelio range, several good-sounding and very stylish models there. Logitech air-enabled boombox, better sound, less money, not so stylish. Pure also make a very nice radio dock, but it may not meet the portability criteria. :cheers:

Get the Jawbone Jambox. Great little product. It connects via bluetooth, has good battery life and the sound is amazing for its size.

 

Plus they have style...

RE: iPad travel speakers

do you not think Andy that this person would want to be listening to these speakers before he buys them and in which case he should be visiting his local shop or store or even , god forbid ,a hifi  shop !

 

just a thought

Tivoli PAL?

Not the latest pece of kit but enduring style (had mine 10 eyars and it still looks great). And it's also extremely simple to use. Portable too - been in many a suitcase of mine.

Slightly over budget but you should be able to get one for £150 I would have thought.

RE: iPad travel speakers

I was just trying to give the OP an idea of the range of products available, that's all. But I do like the suggestion of the Geneva Sound Model XS – very compact, so will easily fir in a suitcase, nicely made, looks good and sounds briliant for its size. No iPad docking or charging though, if that matters.

Which is exactly what I'd asked for, thanks Andy.

Remember, I'm not the buyer here. A colleague wanted some suggestions, and if they now have a shortlist that they can audition (or not) then all the better.

Is this becuase you run a hifi shop? You might want to declare that you're trade in your signature if so.

RE: iPad travel speakers

Mannaudio, this is a forum where people ask for, and give opinions. That's it's reason for being...if someone comes into your store, do you send them somewhere else?
