  • Conclusion: While the slim profile and folding design are very cool, too many sacrifices have been made in terms of usability. The iM500 might appeal if you want an easily portable way to listen to your nano without headphones (at low volumes), but overall we were disappointed.
  • Pros: Sound becomes muffled at mid to high volumes, Need two hands to operate, No equaliser or remote
  • Cons: Ultra thin profile, Very light, Nano can be sync'ed with iTunes

  • Summary: This is a well-designed speaker system that can also act as a dock. However, its sound quality doesn't match its sleek look. The lack of a remote control, hard to press buttons and poor sound quality at higher volume levels means users should give this a miss.
  • Pros: Sleek and compact design, can act as a dock, has an auxiliary input
  • Cons: A remote control isn't included, doesn't have bass and treble controls, poor sound quality at high volume levels
