  • Conclusion: The iPod Radio Remote works well and is stylistically a great match for . But iPod naysayers do have a point when they say AU$79 is a high price to pay for an accessory that adds functionality to the iPod that many of its competitors are already bundled with.
  • Pros: LCD screen on the remote would have been nice, Not available in black, Uses iPod’s battery for power, Only compatible with 5th gen iPods and Nanos
  • Cons: Good radio receiver, Visually appealing interface, User-friendly, Allows you to plug in two headphones into the iPod – great for sharing
