Kensington FX 500 Speaker To Go Review


Admittedly, I am a huge fan of Kensington; I think they produce some of the most coolest, intrinsically stylish, durable and affordable peripherals and devices in the world. Hence, I was very ecstatic to get the opportunity to kick around the tires on...

Lightweight, durable, water proof, shock absorbent, houses all makes of MP3 players, and is easy to set up and operate

Sound is tolerable, no charging dock for iPods

Review: Kensington FX 500 Speaker To Go


Now Kensington has released FX 500 ($50), which for $20 more changes three primary features the FX 300 design: you now get iPod screen and control access through a medium-thickness clear plastic panel, a second speaker, and considerable additional...

Ultimately, making FX 500 bigger didn't make it better in most regards, and they also made it more expensive. As we said in our prior FX 300 review, all that case needed to be legitimately good for its $30 price was iPod screen and control access, but...

iPod travel speakers from Kensington : Kensingto FX500 iPod speakers


Kensington have added to their range of audio accessories with this set of travel speakers, suitable forany media player with a standard jack socket but very obviously aimed at the iPod market.

Kensington - FX500 Speaker To Go


In late 2006 Kensington released the FX300 Speaker To Go, an audio solution for your MP3 player that offered both a sturdy, splash-proof, shock-absorbing case and built-in speaker with an exterior volume control. It was a ...

Without an iPod you'll probably have to unzip the case every time you want to adjust volume or change the tune, so for this reason it's not really suitable unless you own one of Apple's players. If this doesn't put you off you'll find some impressive...

Not bad..


Decent product, but not exceptional.

Solid construction. It is easy to use full size ipod in the case behind the clear protector. Plays fairly loud, but not sure if loud enough to use at the beach. Only 1 switch, power button, on the front. Connects to ipod via the headset connector on...

A bit of a tinny sound. Of course it could be louder. No AC adapter option
