Portable Sound Laboratories
In et 12/10 we introduced the iMainGoX from Portable Sound Laboratories. It's a portable speaker that can play from any music device with a headphone jack, such as an iPhone, iPod, Zune or your vintage cassette player. We were also given a sample to test and are happy to report it works as advertised.
Measuring 5.7x3.8x2.4", the compact device is easy to store in a backpack or carry-on luggage. The storage compartment has a clear window to allow use of touchscreen player controls. It's also pretty durable, with a hard casing so you don't have to worry if you drop it. And unlike most portable speakers, the iMainGoX comes with a rechargeable battery that should last up to 12 hours.
As far as sound quality goes, it's fairly good. It has a little more bass than most high-pitched, self-powered portable speakers. The quality is probably comparable to most computer speakers. But overall, the iMainGoX is the ideal system if you want to have some music at the beach, pool or in the garage.
