iCraig 2.1 Channel Tower Speaker Review

by Migdalia Rivera

I recently attended a CVS event, where one of my parting gifts,was the iCraig 2.1 Channel Tower Speaker. I was esctatic! My teen’s birthday was right around the corner and being a Techie I knew he would love it!

When the box arrived, he immediately wanted to open it. At that point he didn’t know what was inside but he knew it was BIG. Of course, I said “No!” but that didn’t deter him. He persisted and as a mother I relented. What can I say, I’m a softie when it comes to my boys. :)

When we opened the box we were pleasantly surprised to see that the tower was much slimmer than the box. The packaging itself is what made the box seem so large. Incidently, the same packaging that makes the box look larger is what protects the iCraig 2.1 Channel Tower Speaker during transit ensuring you receive your order in one piece.

The tower is ready to go as soon as you remove it from the box. We decided to place it in our entry hallway shown below. As you can see it has a clean design, is very slim and able to stand in most areas. This is extremely important for those of us that live in small areas. Its also what makes it perfect for a dorm room, an office or anywhere!

Below you can see it in our entryway. It’s not a big space but I was able to move the sitting area over a few inches to create space for the tower. Now we can charge our iPods or my son’s iPhone as soon as we get home. Btw, it also allows you to plug in an MP3 via a jack that comes with the tower.

I find its great when we have visitors, especially social media savvy Moms like @MommyFactor who recently visited with her son. She was able to plug and recharge during their visit, without worrying that she would forget it on her way out.

The only downside I’ve found is that the remote can get lost since there is no place to place it on the tower. This, however, was easily remedied with a little ingenuity and some double sided Velcro!

In the end, for the $79.00 sale price, I find its comparable to higher end iPod/iPhone speakers with just as much, if not more, sound quality and this comes from a Bose girl!
