No headphones for your iPod, or wanna listen with your buddies, then simply plop on the Macally PodWave/IP-A111.

But what do you do if you have a Shuffle? Simple, just insert the iPod Shuffle into the Macally IP-S111. Don’t expect good sound quality out of this device, though. According to iLounge you can’t even listen to music at regular levels without bass distortion. Sure, you shouldn’t expect top notch sound quality out of a portable speaker, but at least provide something that is tolerable (as iLounge points out). They give the IP-S111 a “don’t buy tag? and recommend sticking with the IP-A111, that is of course if you can do without having your iPod Shuffle stand up right.
