iHome iH41BR review: iHome iH41BR

Review Sections

The iH41BR's clock display adjusts accordingly when you flip it on its side.

One thing we would have liked is an adjustable foot at the front of the speaker that would allow you to tilt the speaker back a little when it's in horizontal mode. As it is, you really need to have the iH41BR at eye level to view it comfortably. If you're lying in bed and have the unit on a bedside table, it should work well. However, we were sitting in a chair and had it set up on a desk and we needed to tilt the speaker back (we folded up a paper napkin and stuck it underneath the speaker to get the right angle).

The only other landscape-friendly iPod speaker we know of is the Philips DC910 and the DC912. Those models don't sound as good as they should, given their larger size and more expensive price.

All in all, we liked the whole concept of the iH41BR--and it's fairly affordable at around $60 with a small remote that controls basic iPod functions. But a few design tweaks (the ability to easily tilt the unit back) and the inclusion of a radio would have made us more excited about this product. At this price, we don't expect GSM shielding for the iPhone, but hopefully a future version of this product will offer that feature to make it even more iPhone friendly.
