Gear4 HouseParty 4
Advantages: loud sound
Disadvantages: had to replace the remote
I bought these speakers as i had heard great reviews about how loud these speakers are, and they certainly live up to their "house party" name. I have quite a few different ipod speakers round the house and these are by far the loudest and most powerful.
The sound quality is very good and does not muffle even on the highest setting. There are various setting you can turn on and off depending on what you wish to enhance, i personally find turning the bass on makes the sound a lot better.
They are very easy to use you just plug your ipod straight in and turn them on. You can either use the remote control or the buttons on top of the speakers to change song or turn it up. I have had a few problems with my remote control not working but Gear 4 have been very helpful and sent me out a new remote control free of charge.
The design is nice. It is a good size, not too big that you can not put it anywhere convenient, nor is it too small hindering the sound quality. The silver plastic round the edge gives it a nice extra finishing touch. The mesh material on the front can be a little annoying though, i have found the mine is beginning to come away from the speakers so i have to get a pin occasionally and push the edges back in. It is not very noticeable to others, but because i know its there it gets quite annoying.
There are two different features which you can use: 1. the ipod feature and 2. the radio options. I also use mine as an alarm by setting it on my ipod and leaving them plugged in so music will wake me up in the morning.
They are very durable and have dropped them on a few occasions and they still work perfectly fine and i have done no damage to the outside. The only thing that can be temperamental is the remote but as i mentioned previously, gear 4 were only too happy to help.
Overall i would say these are fantastic value for money, they give you everything you need and sound levels which go beyond expectations. I would definitely recommend them.
Summary: i would recommend
