The Good The Anycom FIPO is able to bridge any iPod accessory with a stereo Bluetooth device and is perfect for use with stereo speakers or car iPod adapters.

The Bad Anycom FIPO is a little pricey for what it does, and it won't work with all devices.

The Bottom Line If you want to use the latest iPod accessories with a Bluetooth-enabled non-iPod MP3 player, then the Anycom FIPO is a perfect solution for you. Just be careful to make sure your device is compatible with it.

iPod accessories are a dime a dozen these days, with everything from FM transmitters to speaker systems made with the proprietary universal iPod dock. Non-iPod MP3 players are unfortunately left out of the loop with these accessories--that is, unless they are stereo-Bluetooth-enabled. The Anycom FIPO is a Bluetooth receiver that will fit any iPod dock and aims to be a bridge between iPod accessories and any stereo Bluetooth device, including cell phones. So if you happen to have access to iPod accessories but you would rather use another music player, the Anycom FIPO will let you do that for around $75 a unit.

There's not much to say about the design of the Anycom FIPO. It's just a tiny plastic rectangle measuring about 1.6 inches long, 1.1 inches wide, and 0.5 inch deep and is available in both white and black. On its front is a tiny blue LED that lights up when in pairing mode, and on its bottom is the charger slot that will fit in any universal iPod dock. FIPO is entirely powered by the device it plugs into, which means it is ideal for things like stereo speakers and car iPod adapters.
