Does anybody have recommendations for speakers for the iPad 2. I listen to music constantly from it and sometimes the volume is totally inadequate. Any suggestions not exceeding 70-80 $? I am not sure I need wireless although it will be a nice option if it is not too pricey. Will most speakers that work with ipad2 also work with Samsung 3 phone? Thanks

There are some very good reviews for this but also quite a few which state that the speakers stopped working after some months. Does anybody have personal experience with this? I wondered if Walmart , target, best buy etc had any speakers for the iPad - trying to get during thanksgiving sale. Any ideas ? Thanks

It's a nice speaker set, and relatively cheap. I bought one for my wife a few years ago when it cost around $100.00, and it's still working. But while the sound is clear, don't expect it to be very powerful. For a small to medium size room, or maybe for use at work on your desk it's perfect. I sometimes use it when working in my 2-car garage, and it easily fills the room with music. Just keep in mind that it's designed for the older iPads, iPhones, and iPods that have the wider plugs for charging at the base. The newer iPads and other iOS devices use a very narrow plug now. There are adapters you can use, however.
