Default Extremly Portable speakers

I have a iriver u10 and I usually use it mostly for movies and other shows whenever im on a trip. Im looking for alternatives to the cradle. My friends like watching over me but earphones really doesnt help because of the fact that my class is very loud and because my friends are all over me. Can someone reccomend to me a very protable but loud speakers?

Needed features
Loud or loud enough
Cant have really bad sound quality
Cheap

Better than any cheap speakers would be getting some decent IEM earphones, like the Sennheiser CX 300, V-Moda Bass Fréq or Creative EP-630.

Audio quality is lightyears ahead of cheap/small speakers, and they isolate from outside noise quite well.

If you get a cheap headphone cable splitter you can easily attach two pairs of IEMs to the U10.

Thanks for your fast answer and my slow responce.
The problem with using a headphone splitter is that my firends are all over i meant left to right,up and across so i really cant do that.

I really dont care about audio quality it just cant be really bad. Also the bus ride to the trip is basicly 2X louder than a regular train ride

Thanks for your suggestion.

Edit: Sorry for being offtopic but is it worth it if i change my iaudio stock earbuds to a creative ep 630?

Well, I guess since quality doesn't matter you can take any pair of speakers you find. Get the ones that get the most playback time out of the batteries, then, IMO.

For quality low-budget speakers I'd recommend looking at Altec Lansing or Logitech. Dunno how their battery-powered speakers are, but their computer speakers get good reviews.

And yes, the Creative EP-630 are already a huge step up in sound quality compared to the Cresyn earbuds that come with iAudio players. Specifically the bass is much better.
