Conclusion: The IP4 can rock out a bedroom or small living room with no problem. It’s no Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin, but it was never meant to be. What the IP4 is, is a reasonably priced, impossibly retro-looking portable throwback to the glory days of street boom boxes.
Pros: "Love it" retro design, Pivoting dock connector, Decent sound, SRS digital signal processing built in, Convenient handle and strap
Cons: "Hate it" retro design, Weak FM, Bass just OK
Conclusion: iHome did itself proud with the iP4. Not only is this retro-styled boombox one of the better efforts at bringing back the feel of the ‘80’s (for those of us who care to remember), it also happens to sound pretty darn good, too.
