[Editors' Note: On November 1, 2006, iLounge published The 2007 iPod Buyers' Guide, with more than 30 brand new, capsule-sized product reviews - only for products we considered to be amongst the very best we've seen throughout the year. The short review below is excerpted from the Guide, which you can download here.]

iHome’s iH31 was pretty good when it was originally released as iH30 (iLounge rating: B), a same-looking speaker system with integrated FM radio, plastic shielded iPod and original shuffle docks, and both wall and car chargers in the box. Then iHome dropped the price by $20 and threw in a 15-button Infrared remote control, complete with access to iH31’s six FM preset stations - both nice improvements. As with iThunder, the four-inch drivers inside aren’t audiophile quality, but for the price and given its eight C-cell portability, it’s a solid option with good sound, and now available in white, black or silver.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
