Looking for quality sounding Shuffle-Specific speakers

Please choose the appropriate forum for this topic. Thank you. Hello! I have a friend that has a shuffle, and I am looking to get a set of speakers for her for the holidays.

What I am looking for has the following qualities, in order of preference:

* Sound Quality
* Overall product quality
* Ease of use
* Portability (Low - heck, they can be stationary)

I've done my legwork on the Reviews page for Shuffle-based speakers, and it seems none of them actually sound as good as a normal pair of speakers (regular iPod or otherwise). I am left wondering if I should keep looking for Shuffle Speakers, or something else, if sound quality will be an issue.

Can anyone help me and shed some insight on the current Shuffle Speaker lineup?

Thank you!

-Geoffrey

i have no experience with any of the shuffle speakers, nor have i spent any time reading the reviews. i'm pretty much just talking out of my ###, but i think its some good blanket statements that cover any ipod specific speaker set.

if you want sound quality and product quality, there are many better options than ipod specific speakers. you can buy a set of computer speakers. they just plug into the shuffles headphone jack and play away. or you can buy a cable to plug your shuffle directly into your stereo (it must have an input in the back). either of these will be cheaper and much better sounding, but not portable.

you do, however, have to consider what she would want. are you sure thats what her preferences would be?
