iHome iH27BR Video
With the iH9, iHome Audio continues to improve its popular iPod clock radio while keeping it relatively affordable.
For iPod owners in the market for a clock radio, the iHome iH5 is an attractive option.
iHome's iHM77 portable speakers get high marks for design, but they don't exactly shine in the sound quality department.
The iHome iH12's simple and attractive design gives it an appeal as a budget iPod clock radio while its sound isn't so impressive.
If you don't mind hooking up wires and separate speakers, the SDI iHome iH52 is one of the better deals in the iPod speaker arena.
With the exception of its improved iPhone support and slightly more stylish design, the iP99 is almost identical to earlier iHome clock radios.
The iHome iPhone app converts the otherwise basic iA5 into a feature-loaded alarm clock.
The iHome iH69 is a pair of PC speakers that may not have the best sound quality, but the built-in iPod dock makes them attractive.
iHome's iHMP5 2-in-1 speaker/headphone system is an intriguing concept, but it falls short in the performance and comfort departments.
The iHome iP1 may not sound great with all types of music, but this striking iPod/iPhone speaker system will appeal to listeners who gravitate toward pop, hip-hop, rock, and electronica.
iHome iH27BR (black) Review
The good: Fold-flat design for travel; runs off 4 AA batteries or included power supply; alarm clock functionality allows you to wake to iPod songs; line-in/line out; remote included; SRS mode widens soundstage to provide better stereo separation and improved sound; video output for displaying iPod video on TV.
The bad: No radio; short on bass; a bit bulky for travel; you can't navigate your iPod's menu system using the included remote; video and alarm functions may not work with latest batch of iPods.
The bottom line: If you're looking for a portable iPod speaker system/alarm clock that can also serve as a home-based system--and you don't need a radio--the iH27 may fit the bill.
