The Good The Vestalife Ladybug offers a unique design and handy features such as pass-through syncing and auxiliary line input. The speaker can be powered via batteries, and the included remote can navigate iPod menus and control playback.

The Bad Audio sounds muffled for some genres, and bass can sound muddy. Speaker may not get loud enough for some.

The Bottom Line The Vestalife Ladybug is a suitable choice for iPod owners who want a stylish and reasonably compact portable speaker that can also be used in a dorm room or office.

Editors' Top Picks

If you have a favorite animal, chances are you can now find it in the form of an iPod speaker. We've seen everything from pigs and pandas to cats and dogs. Heck, even insect-lovers are not left out in the cold, thanks to Vestalife's Butterfly and Ladybug speaker docks. The Ladybug goes for $110 and rather outshines its cousin in design and sound quality. For those who are after a different-looking portable speaker with a reasonable smattering of extra, this unit could fit the bill.
