With two teenagers in the house we have lots of mp3 players and related items. So when I got the chance to review the RockBoom Ipod Speaker case I knew it was a perfect fit for my family. The RockBoom Speaker iPod Case, made by ChicBuds, doubles as an iPod case and a speaker â€“ all in one. And whatâ€™s even betterâ€¦the speaker is invisible, protected behind the streamlined material of the case.
It is sized to hold a slim line nano iPod or other small mp3 device inside. The mp3 player connects to the to the speaker case through a 3.5mm jack, and the speakers are in the back of the case. It is compact and portable, and serves 2 functions, protecting the mp3 player and delivering quality sound.
My 17 year old took charge of this as soon as it came, and she loves it. She prefers not to listen to her music with earbuds when she is doing homework, so she had been listening to music using the iPod nano’s built in speakers. The sound from the RockBoom speaker is much, much better than the internal iPod speakers, so she is very pleased with the case. The fact that it is portable is a big plus. When we visited my mom last week my daughter was able to take her music and easily listen at her grandmother’s house. I also like the fact that she is using her earbuds less, since I worry about her hearing being damaged from using earbuds too much.
The sound is great, and the price is only $25.00! I’ve seen plenty of iPod cases that cost that much or more, even without a built in speaker, so it is a great deal. The only drawback is a larger device, like an iPod Touch, would be too big for it; the case is sized for an iPod nano or a smaller device. Here is a picture of it with my daughter’s ipod nano.
