For a speaker set that's about the size of a cell phone, the LG Portable Stereo Speakers MSP-100 ($59.99) sounds about as good as can be expected. Flip this ultraportable speaker system open, and you won't find a screen and a keypad, although that's what you might expect from its clamshell, cell phone-like design. Instead, there are two speakers that run from an internal rechargeable battery; a power button; and little else. Sound quality is somewhat constrained by the ultracompact design, but the MSP-100 is a solid on-the-go solution for amplifying sound from cell phones and portable media players.
