The Good The Vestalife Butterfly offers a cute design with interchangeable faceplates; it works with all docking iPods and other MP3 players; it charges the iPod and allows for pass-through syncing; it can run off of batteries.

The Bad The Vestalife Butterfly suffers from cheap-feeling plastic construction, and sound quality is poor.

The Bottom Line The Vestalife Butterfly is an appropriate choice for iPod-toting tweens of the girlie persuasion, but anyone with an ear for sound should steer clear.

For the slew of companies creating speaker docks for the Apple iPod, distinguishing their products from the masses can be a bit of a challenge. Creating an eye-catching design is just one of the many ways to tackle this issue, and an increasing design trend is the animal-inspired speaker. Such is the case with the Vestalife Butterfly, a funky speaker dock that every iPod-toting 11-year-old girl will be scrambling to obtain. At $79, the Vestalife Butterfly is priced fairly, given the neat design and fair amount of features, but sound quality is definitely not its strong suit.
