Skullcandy's Pipe iPod Dock Review on GeekSugar

Skullcandy Brings the Noise With the Pipe iPod Speaker Dock

When I first saw the Skullcandy iPod Speaker Dock ($70) at Target, I questioned how good the quality could be from something so compact. But after testing it out myself, I take back all the doubt I had previously cast upon it.

Coming with a battery-powered remote and charging cable, the Skullcandy Pipe is perfect for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, or even the living room if you're looking for a full sound in a smaller space. I had this playing at a recent family holiday party, and it provided the perfect amount of background music to keep the party going into the night. The remote gets great range, and just four AAA batteries seem to last quite awhile if you aren't using the included charging cable. To see what else I thought about the Skullcandy Pipe, just

Although the sound is crisp and clear from the two end speakers, you can't blast your tunes without hearing some groggy bass. This is unfortunate, but that's not to say this baby doesn't get loud — it does! Also, I would have liked to have tested out the Pipe with my iPhone (which houses a ton of my music), but when I plugged my iPhone in, I got an error message saying that the iPhone wasn't compatible with the unit — although a friend has one and she says it works with her iPhone! Overall, the Skullcandy Pipe is a great portable device that pumps out some pretty great sounds, and works with any generation iPod. I do wish the price point was a little lower (say around $50), but it's a great product nonetheless. Lesson learned: never judge a book by its cover, or an iPod dock by its size!

FYI, I read on reviews (b/c I was looking to buy this for my iphone) that it does NOT work well with the iphone because unless you put it on airplane mode, it emits a buzzing sound in the speakers. Thus, if it's on airplane mode, you cannot receive texts, calls, etc while you are using it in the skullcandy speaker.
