I needed a speaker for my Mp3 player, so I went to the store and started checking some out. The least expensive one I could find was the GPX Portable Speaker, so I purchased it. I thought this speaker would be fine because it said on the packaging that it would work with virtually any Mp3 Player, and because it had an "adjustable" headphone dock. When I opened the speaker and attached it to my Mp3 Player, I realized that I would have to turn my Mp3 Player backwards, so that if I wanted to see the screen, I would have to turn it around. This made things awkward. Then after reading the instructions, they contradicted the packaging saying things like "connect your ipod or ipod shuffle 3rd generation" like it was only created for them. This was very disturbing and I realized that was why I had to put mine in backwards. The Mp3 player I was using was a walkman, not an ipod.
It seemed to accept my Mp3 player however, and I enjoyed listening to my music without headphones in my ears, as I had wanted. After a few songs played, I realized that I could get better sound quality from my five dollar AM/FM radio. Since I had heard the songs through my headphones, I knew it was not the fault of my Mp3 player. I will keep this Speaker, however until I can afford to upgrade, but I am upset that the packaging was misleading and will remember this the next time I see a GPX product.
