The Good The LG MSB-100 Bluetooth stereo speakerphone has an appealing compact design that works great for streaming music wirelessly as well as for hands-free calls in the car. It has music player keys and easy-to-use controls.

The Bad The LG MSB-100 has rather average sound quality.

The Bottom Line The LG MSB-100 is a portable stereo speakerphone that can handle both phone calls as well as streaming music, but don't expect superior sound.

Bluetooth speakerphones are not anything new--we've seen it before with the BlueAnt Wireless Supertooth Light and the Tekkeon et6000 ezSpeak. But there aren't too many Bluetooth speakerphones that play music, too. Sony Ericsson has made a few though, like the MPS-70 speakers, as have LG, with the MSP-200 portable speakers. The LG MSB-100 takes a traditional speaker design approach, but in a completely compact and portable size. It has dedicated music player keys, plus it even comes with a visor clip so you can use it in your car as a hands-free speakerphone. Do note that you can only use this speakerphone with devices that have stereo Bluetooth. It's a tad pricey at $120, but you can get it cheaper if you shop around.

The LG MSB-100 has to be one of the cutest portable speakers we've ever seen. Measuring at 4.34 by 2.5 by 1.02 inches and weighing about 4 ounces, the MSB-100 is compact and designed almost like a mini boombox. It has smooth curves all the way around as well as a sleek piano-black finish. It has two round silver-plated speaker grilles and two small LED indicators for the battery and the status right on the front and a kick stand on the back (in case you want to prop it up). On the top is the Power/End button (it's also the multifunction button), a mute button, plus the music player controls. A hold switch and charger jack sits on the left spine while the volume rocker is on the right. There's also an optional visor clip that you can use to clip the MSB-100 to your car's visor.
