Review: Speakal iPig iPod docking station

 

Does cuteness affect perceived value? I recently ran the Speakal iPig through its paces, with the hopes of simply writing a review of the product. As I used (and enjoyed) the setup, however, it became apparent that a larger issue was rearing its head:...

Reviews: Speakal iPig and iPanda

 

iPig looks like a yellow, pink, or white piggy bank with chrome-ringed speakers for eyes and almost alien ears; each version comes with a generic white Infrared remote control, a power supply, an auxiliary audio cable, and three dock adapters. There...

In February, 2009, Speakal provided a sample of iPanda, a recolored and slightly modified version of iPig that now includes more Dock Adapters, a redesigned nose, and otherwise similar functionality. Photos are provided here for your reference

Amethyst iPig iPod Buddy

 

It's rare that we can call something a pig and mean it in a good way, but that's the case with the Amethyst iPig iPod Buddy: an interesting iPod dock ...

Good sound quality, low price, interesting design, good iPod menu control with remote control

Pig-like design may not appeal to everyone, upper treble notes sound slightly tinny, slight distortion at high volumes

The Amethyst iPig iPod Buddy has a pig-like design that not everyone will like, but its sound quality is excellent considering its price.

Cutest speakers ever? Speakal's iPom and iPig... : Shiny Shiny

 

The specs on these unusual speakers are good for their size. The iPig is an iPod dock, also connects via cable to laptops, games consoles, TVs and MP3 players. Press its ears to control the volume, it has five speakers with adjustable bass and treble...

REVIEW – Speakal iPig iPod Speaker Dock

 

Don't let its cute appearance fool you into thinking that it's just some cheap toy for people who don't care about how anything sounds. The iPig iPod speaker system from Speakal comes with a strong pedigree and it is perfectly capable of handling the...

Speakal has done a pretty good job with the iPig speaker dock for the iPod. The cute appearance and range of colors will make it a great complement to the bedroom of a child or even a teenager, though it may not be quite as appropriate for a grown-up's...

Ipig dock

 

I am keeping this for my own use. I admit I bought this in a hurry for a Christmas gift and missed the fine print. I research most purchases more thoroughly and had avoided returns up now. My fault.

This is a great little dock for most Ipods. However, not for the Shuffle for which it was purchased. I ended up hooking it to my computer and it sounds terrific. If you own a suitable Ipod, get this. You must have the Ipod connector as using the AUX...

I bought this as gift but it is not for ALL Ipods as advertised.For the very first time Neweggs return policy was poor. Exchange only

WOAH!

 

SMALLER THAN IT LOOKS! I thought it would be much bigger, but its surprisingly small! I cant think of anything that is the same size, but i could pick it up with one hand (wrap my fingers halfway around it). Do I recommend: YES. It is a little pricy,...

It has great sound quality ; You can hook up ipod OR any device with a standerd size headphone jack output (it comes with a male-male aux cable) ; Can get quite loud ; For such a small device (see other thoughts) it produces a lot of base ; Its a cute...

Its a pig... not a panda... Come on NewEgg! Why are you charging $40 more for a product that is the exact same as this one but looks slightly different ; On an Ipod touch, the home button gets covered up by the peice of plastic hat fits touches (there...

The cutest pig in the world

 

I've had an ipod for years now (is there anyone who doesn't own one?) but I've only ever used it for when I am out and about and stuck to CD's in the house. This all changed when for my last birthday my lovely best friend bought me the Amethyst ipig...

sound quality, looks amazing

it is heavy and may be too cutesy for some

My daughter is absolutely delighted with the IPIG. The sound quality is brilliant, it's sturdy and we love the way the mouth lights up!
