When I first turned it on I was quite taken aback by the amount of sound coming out of such a small device.Â The iMainGo2 boasts titanium speakers and the state-of-the-art electronics to deliver serious sound from just a little package.

I had quite a bit of fun testing out the iMainGo2 since I got it just before heading out on a 2-week camping trip.Â The speaker system made a great companion around the campfire and entertained us in the tent during a rainstorm with stories of This American Life.
What I liked best about the iMainGo2 is that the speaker system also acts as a protective case. I am notoriously hard on electronics, but with the case I wasnâ€™t too worried about letting my iPod sit out in the elements.
I was also surprised at how well I could still operate my iPod through the iMain2Go2â€™s touch sensitive window.Â Plus the batteries held out for the entire trip â€“ they estimate that 4 AAA batteries will give you about 30 hours of usage.Â Only downfall is that part of the inner case came apart, but it is probably because I had the iMainGo2 sitting in my car in 100+ degree weather – the glue just seemed to melt. Â No real big deal, it just makes it a little harder to get your iPod secured down in the case.
