It’s not quite the lowest price ever (it’s been sold for £24.99 earlier this year), but it’s one of the cheapest mark-ups we’ve seen.

The latest model sticks with the same specification of one 1.6-inch speaker, but it’s now ‘front firing’, which should help project sound in a more effective manner.
