I think the adapter solution is the way to go. something not too thick will help not stress the small plug as well.
Sounds like it will compete for all in one best. That it's one piece pocket-able and to that sound level will assure it's sales. Not for everyone but then it wasn't meant to be. I do find it a bit humorous that it's constantly getting slammed for price by those that will never consider it. Just be happy it sounds good and move on if not for you. Probably what I'll do but I can still appreciate the overall excellent execution, just like their other units. Don't much care what something sounds like if I don't want to use it due to size or OS.
