iHome IH85B Portable iPod Bicycle Speaker with wireless remote and mount
Pros: Portable sound w/o earphones, excellent sound quality, solid build, easy to use, wireless remote can be mounted on handlebar, wide volume range.
Cons: Requires 4 AA batteries for portability, can't see what song you are playing.
Immediately removed it from the package and plugged my Nano in. I got a huge smile on my face because THIS THING ROCKS. Fantastic sound quality considering the size of the speaker, and you can turn it up incredibly loud but it also sounds great at low levels while riding. The unit is slightly larger than a water bottle and weighs slightly more than a full water bottle.
The wireless handlebar mount works perfectly allowing you to change songs or adjust volume. It has a nice rubberized coating on it that seems like it would be moisture resistant/proof. The bottle is made of sturdy plastic and the speaker has a thick metal grille protecting it. The ipod is well secured with included adapters for regular iPods down to the Nano (a shuffle won't fit). To access the pod, you must first twist the bottom section of the bottle then slide it out. The holder that attaches to your bike is made of metal and plastic and features a nice clamp mechanism to further secure the unit to your bike. It takes 4 AA batteries for portability and also features an AC input which charges your iPod when plugged in. The power button on the bottle allows you to easily turn it on and off at your convenience.
A safer alternative to riding with earphones in your ears. Excellent value for the money. I am extremely happy with this purchase!
