Rated 5 out of 5 by goose Works with smartphone!
I bought these as a gift for my daughter because she has an iPod. I called originally to find out if they were compatible with an android smart phone, they said no, listed as iPhone, iPad or iPod only. Well, she got them and they work with her Galaxy S3. I ordered some for our phones now. Can't speak to the durability or quality yet, but I will.

Good sound but far too fragile and breakable. I purchased a second set to replace the first set which broke and the second set was no better. I'm throwing in the towel on these for portability. Perhaps defeats the purpose for my purchase in the first place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VTCats Great sound and size, but . . .
I returned them simply because I do not think they are constructed nearly well enough to withstand the day-to-day use that the typical teenager (for whom I bought them for) would put them through. In fact, as some other reviewers mentioned, the "pop-up" and "click together" features just seem like it is only a matter of time before the tabs that hold and click them together wear out; just sort of the nature of the beast with those sort of functions. I was also a bit leery of the durability of the retractable (something else to fail) cord connecting the 2 speakers together. Finally, the USB charger connector is that of the mini variety rather than the more common micro connector.
In short, if you are looking for a small set of speakers to leave on your desk, but also have the option of portability, then these may work for you. Otherwise, they struck me as being little more than a cool novelty item (from China) that sounds pretty good. For the money there are better options out there.
I love L.L. Bean products, but electronics are not their forte.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanALongLongTime More than I expected
I have been looking for speakers for my iPad, but could not decide on which ones. Found these today at L.L.Bean and figured that they had to have passed some serious testing in order to be a product backed by the L.L.Bean guarantee. These are little, but sound big. Nothing metallic about the sound coming out of these. Like that there are no batteries to deal with AND that the cables to plug one into the other and into your device spool right back into the speaker. The only cord to keep track of is the charger, which is a USB. Keep that cord the cute little drawstring bag for travel and you will be all set!

Such a handy litle gadget, it has great sound, and it is nice to be able to use my I Pod withoutt having to use the earbuds. I wish I had gotten one sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by elbee9 great sound
love these and love that they are rechargeable. my only gripe on that end is that they use the mini USB, not the now common micro USB to charge and therefore it can be a bit inconvenient to make sure you have yet another cord with you - but they are small and make me able to hear my iPad - glad i got them!

Like the size and the sound--small and portable. The plugin covers are a little cheesy. Overall a good buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by IrishRoever Very disappointing
They made a clicking sound which I found distracting.
I tried them on a couple of different devices...same issue.
So I returned them.

Recently purchased; loved the portability features, ease of use. Sound is quite good for mini's. However, after only 2 times using, the turn-pop-up top (for enhanced sound) on one unit does not stay close/twist down. There was no heavy twist or twisting in the wrong direction either, just seems like a defect in the catch tabs so the top is permanently popped up.
