JVC Color Matching Portable Stereo Speakers for iPod Review & Giveaway


I have had my iPod for years and ever since I have had children I always have at least 1 if not both earbuds taken out so they can listen.  I was very excited when offered the opportunity to review JVC’s new Color Matching Portable Stereo Speakers for the iPod.

An iPod® nano-matching powered portable speaker was announced today by JVC.  The new JVC SP-A130 is a compact, portable speaker available in four iPod nano 5G colors.

The compact SP-A130 is a dual driver speaker that features a sliding cover design so it remains small and easy to pack when not in use and protects the two drivers.   Sliding it open exposes both drivers along with the built-in storage area in the back for the connecting cord.  A stand allows the speaker to be easily propped up for use.

The JVC SP-A130 features two one-inch (30mm) speaker drivers each powered by 160 milliwatts.  An active/passive mode switch allows the choice of powering the speaker with its own amplifier or by the connected device.   The SP-A130 is powered by two AAA batteries.

The JVC SP-A130 portable speakersare available in four iPod®Nano matching colors: black, silver, pink and blue.

Retails for $29.99.

My take:   We have been using this non-stop ever since we received it.  I love how tiny it is, how great the sound is and most importantly there is no longer a fight over the earbuds since we can listen to the music together.  The quality of the music is top-notch and whether we are at the park playing or at home coloring this is so portable and simple to use that we are constantly listening to it!
