Griffin Evolve


$350.00 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Wireless speaker design is a major selling point - satellites can be moved virtually anywhere around the house with a great functional range. Fully compatible with all iPod/iPhone generations - units seat comfortably with no connectivity issues/on-screen warnings. Included lithium-ion batteries seem to perform even better than advertised - capable of providing more than 10 hours of playback on a single charge.

The Cons:Remote control is fairly underwhelming - lacks advanced controls that require physical control of unit for optimal audio settings.

The Griffin Evolve is an iPod dock system featuring a charging base and two wireless, cube-shaped speakers. Each speaker cube is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery pack that works for up to 10 hours, after which users recharge it by placing it back onto the charging base.

The user simply turns a speaker’s on/off switch and then moves it to a location within 150’ of the base unit. Note that earlier versions of the Evolve do not support video output with the iPod classic, iPod touch, or the 3rd generation iPod nano. Video output, however, is fully compatible with 5th generation iPods. Basically, this means that iPod videos can be watched on a television. Included also with the Griffin Evolve is an RF remote.
