iHome's iHM77 portable speakers get high marks for design, but they don't exactly shine in the sound quality department.
Despite some budget design traits, the iHome iH70 effectively combines PC speakers and an iPod speaker dock in one product--but you can get the nearly identical black version for half as much.
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.
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.
For iPod owners in the market for a clock radio, the iHome iH5 is an attractive option.
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.
The iHome iH27BR is what you're looking for in a portable iPod speaker system/alarm clock that can also serve as a home-based system if you don't need a radio.
The iHome iH41BR's rotating design makes it a great way to enjoy bedside videos from your iPod Touch or iPod Nano--we just wish it had a little more flexibility.
iHome's iHMP5 2-in-1 speaker/headphone system is an intriguing concept, but it falls short in the performance and comfort departments.
Though you can't expect too much from these mini speakers, they do offer decent sound for their small size and they travel well.
iHome iH69B Review
The good: The iHome iH69 is a set of PC speakers with an integrated iPod/iPhone dock that lets you play music, recharge your player, and sync it with your Windows or Mac PC. An auxiliary input is also included.
The bad: No remote; lack of GSM shielding means iPhones must be toggled to airplane mode; too many cables; no way to toggle inputs.
The bottom line: While the iHome iH69B may not sound as good as its step-up sibling, the iH70, it effectively combines PC speakers and an iPod speaker dock in one product and is arguably the better value.
