The Good Easy to use. Compact design. Respectable performance.

The Bad Speakers suffer from static at the highest volume levels. Hinge construction is rather loose.

The Bottom Line The Nokia MD-6 Mini-Speakers are far from perfect, but they offer decent performance for what they are.

If Nokia's MD-7W Bluetooth speakers are the Rolls Royce of mobile phone accessories, then the company's MD-6 Mini-Speakers are the Nissan. Sure, they're reliable and easy to use, but you wouldn't want to take them to the prom. But even if they're not particularly flashy, the MD-6 speakers deliver descent sound quality for their portable size and affordable AU$95 price tag.

You wouldn't be alone if you thought the MD-6 speakers resembled an over-sized lipstick case. Indeed, many people made such a comparison when the speakers were laying around the CNET offices. The bar-shaped speakers are small enough to slide into a bag or a large pocket, and they're relatively light for their size. And for even easier portability, Nokia includes a carrying bag in the box.

The speakers are clad in a black plastic skin with red caps at either end. The only other exterior features are a tiny light and a sliding button that pushes out one end of the bar to expose the phone connection cord. The cord stretches a generous 70cms, but it wraps up neatly; just the end is left dangling outside the case
