Cygnett GrooveCube ReCharge

Cygnett ReCharge

Like Creative’s TravelSound 400, the GrooveCube ReCharge is a battery-powered unit clearly designed with maximum portability in mind. In fact, it’s even smaller than the TravelSound, measuring just 12.5cm long and small enough to slip into a jacket pocket when you’re ready to get moving. However, there are a few differences between this and the TravelSound. As the name implies, the ReCharge has a built-in rechargeable battery, which runs for about six hours and can be charged from a USB port on a computer or a car power supply - the cables are all included. It’s quite a bit louder than the TravelSound too – although the sound quality gets a bit shrill when you turn it all the way up.

Gear4 Duo

Gear4 Duo

It’s a bit pricey, but the Duo’s ingenious design effectively gives you two speaker systems in one. The Duo is a two-piece unit that consists of a sub-woofer and a flat-panel set of stereo speakers. When you’re at home you clip the two parts together to produce a powerful 38W speaker system, but you can also unclip the stereo speaker panel and use it as a self-contained set of portable speakers. The portable section is just 2.5cm thick, but produces very good sound that doesn’t break up even when you turn the volume right up. The portable section includes an iPod dock and a secondary input that can be used with other types of players, as well as a rechargeable battery that lasts for 2-6 hours, depending on how high you set the volume.
