Cell phone speakers

I want speakers for my cell phone to listen to music, but I know nothing about them. I guess I want them to be portable and I dont want to spend over about 50 to 75 dollars. Small cheap ones would be ok if they worked. Thanks in advance.

the bigger the speakers you get the more you'll notice how crappy computer files sound.

Google USB charged portable speakers.

Look around until you find what you want. The USB part is just a convienent way to charge the batter in these that is needed for the amplifier to give you a bit better sound.

Here is one suggestion available at Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/20703594?a...l5=pla&veh=sem

$20.

I like this one the X-Mini II - not much bigger than a golf ball and produces pretty good sound for its size
