Nokia Mini-Speakers MD-6
If Nokia's MD-7W Bluetooth speakers are the Rolls Royce of cell 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 decent sound quality for their portable size and affordable $79.95 price tag.
You wouldn't be alone if you thought the MD-6 speakers resembled an oversized lipstick case. Indeed, many people made such a comparison when the speakers were laying around the CNET offices. At 4.8 by 1.3 by 1.3 inches, the bar-shaped speakers are small enough to slide into a bag or a large pocket. Also, as they weigh just 4.9 ounces (with the batteries), 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 2.3 feet, but it wraps up neatly; just the end is left dangling outside the case
