I thought the point of a portable music player was to be portable. You could do the same thing if you bought the dock and a nice set of computer speakers.
Please tell me if I am wrong and it will work without plugging it in.
Sorry, no battery, so no sound these speakers were designed to just sit on your desk, in your living room, etc. where they can be plugged in. I use my headset if I'm going mobile, my adapter in my truck when I'm traveling, and the speakers at home when I don't want to be "plugged in".
I had Logitech's MM50's when I had my Nano and they were battery powered but I never used them in that mode as my main purpose for the speakers were to give me a way to listen to my music while at my desk, but still able to take calls, as well as work on my computer and not have to run the music through it and put up with the inevitable LOUD ding when mail arrived or an error occurred.
I'm not saying having batteries isn't a good thing, but for me, it's not a big deal. Maybe Logitech will release a variation of the MM50's for the Zune too. I know that physically the Zune would fit in the space on them, it's just the dock connector doesn't match. However, they do have a line-in jack and you could run your Zune through it just knowing you couldn't sync or charge via them. I was using them in this manner until I was able to sell them with my Zune and that's what gave me the $'s to buy these speakers.
