Review: iHome iH31 iHome2Go Portable System for iPod

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.
