    I've got a MID M806 8" tablet with a worthless built-in speaker. I've been using a pair of Logitech computer speakers, but I'd like something with a better sound. Every time I look for speakers, I find crappy $20 computer speakers (which I have) and $$$$$ surround-sound systems (which I don't need), but not very much in between.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a compact set of speakers (ideally that will fit on my nightstand) that sound good and cost under $100 or so?

    If I'm reading correctly, you're giving me recommendations for headphones? I don't want headphones or earbuds because I play music on my tablet while I'm sleeping. I ordered the Genius wood speakers and they should arrive today. I'll post here how I like them.

    Ok, I got the Genius wood speakers that I posted above. Opened them, hooked them up, and tried them out. There is a short in the cable. I get a very loud hum and no sound most of the time. If I jiggle the jack and/or push it in really tight and hold it in, I get sound, but it won't stay on. I'll be contacting Amazon about returning them.

    What happened? Did you get a replacement set and are happily listening to tunes now snapdragon? :D

    Edited to add: I am thinking we'll need an external speaker when we get our tablet, and I am wondering if the Music Bullet might be a cheap but decent speaker. We don't need to have stereo, small and easily portable and inexpensive would be what we're looking for in a external speaker. :)
