This speaker is not your ticket to a bon voyage.

Portable. Wraparound cover doubles as a stand. Remote has a built-in magnet. Adjustable pad keeps iPod face flush with speaker front. Handy battery-life meter.

Anemic sound overall. Terrible distortion at high volumes. No treble or bass controls. Can't work onboard controls one-handed. Expensive.

We like the Journi's shape, but not its sound. We'll take a hard-bound book on the road.

Griffin, maker of all manner of Apple iPod accessories, has created a speaker dock that's good-looking, portable, and easy to charge. That is great, but the Journi's sound quality is pretty disappointing. Audiophiles can stop reading now, and anyone...

Excellent design. Very portable. Magnetic remote is hard to lose. Depth-adjustment wheel secures iPod in dock.

Speakers easily distort. Not much low end.

Those seeking excellent sound should steer clear of the Griffin Journi, but folks looking for a stylish, well-designed, very portable iPod dock to travel with could settle for worse.

Griffin Journi Review and Prices

 

When one considers the plethora of iPod speaker systems available, few of them are truly portable. But one such system is the Griffin Journi, which generally impressed us with its ease of use and design touches, despite lacking a solid sound range. ...

Griffin Journi Portable Speakers for iPod review

 

For iPod owners who aren't picky about sound and want an ultracompact portable speaker system with a cool design and a healthy array of features, the Griffin Journi is a decent option

Unique and stylish design ; Built-in rechargeable battery and handy meter for checking battery's charge on the go ; Pass-through for syncing and an auxiliary line-input for non-iPod MP3 players

So-so sound quality ; Remote not terribly responsive

Griffin also includes a modular cable/power adaptor that gives you the choice of charging through either your computer's USB port or a standard AC wall outlet. Below the battery meter, a rubber flap can be opened to reveal a 30-pin iPod port for...

Awesome

 

A removable battery would be nice.

The speakers have good sound quality and can get quite loud. I have kept them at max volume for quite some time and I can say tat there is no risk of blowing the speakers. I'm sure the battery will start to shorten in life, but so far I have been...

The casing while nice and beautifully made has problems standing in its designed place. It Works fine but may take a tiny bit of fiddling because the only thing holding it in place is a slot on the back and a few weak magnets

Product Specifications

Journi, Griffin's personal mobile speaker system, has great sound wrapped up in a rugged, go-anywhere package. Charge Journi up, slip your iPod into the Dock, and hit the road. Journi evolved from a simple idea. Apple's go-just-about-anywhere iPod deserves a set of portable speakers that don't sound like they ran your music through a meat grinder. Journi rises to the challenge with great-sounding portable speakers in an ingeniously designed, easy-to-use form factor. Journi's innovative Wrapstand exterior protects your iPod when you're on the go, then flips open to create its own stand. High-efficiency internal Lithium-Ion batteries recharge with the included AC adapter or through your computer's powered USB port (so-called Dual Fuel technology). Your iPod sits center stage on the adjustable Dock connector. You control the iPod with the included remote. SRS Labs' SRS WOW digital signal processing pumps shimmering highs and deep, rich bass response through Journi's two-way speaker system. Wherever you and your iPod are headed, Griffin's Journi is the perfect travel companion. (It even shares your taste in music.)
