Creative has launched a dedicated speaker system for users of Apple's iPod shuffle.

The brushed-metal all-in-one Creative TravelSound i50 docking speaker is designed to clip on to an iPod shuffle (2G) and contains four mini speakers and a digital amp. It costs £39.99 and offers up to 21 hours music playback per charge. A mini USB connector supports downloads from computer and web and also recharges the player and speakers.

"These speakers are custom designed to complement the style of the iPod shuffle," explains John Keybeck, Creative's European brand manager. "It brings users all the benefits of Creative's expertise in speaker design and sound - and they're so easy to use. Just slot-in the player and start listening."

Inside the brushed-metal case, a combination of four precision microdrivers and digital amplifier deliver full, rich sound.
