iLuv i399


$140.00 Released February, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built-in subwoofer considerably increases sound quality - audio is round, balanced and louder overall. FM radio is highly functional - allows users to locate and store their favorite stations, with a variety of preset EQ options for optimal listening. BluePin adapter offers full compatibility of Bluetooth devices - ideal for streaming audio content from a smartphone, tablet or network storage device.

The Cons:Lacks many major elements of the cheaper iLuv i199 model - CD player, USB port and alarm clock functions are all absent. Rhythmic LED lights are fairly pointless - responsive patterns provide more tackiness than functionality. Requires 8 D-cell batteries for portable use - sure to get very expensive for users who plan to take the unit on camping and similar outdoor environment trips.

The i399 is a mid-range 2.1 iPod audio system from iLuv. It plays music from a docked iPod, and features an FM radio tuner with 20 presets, but lacks the alarm clock function of many iLuv models. The i399 is also a universal dock, charging the device and enabling TV output for video-capable iPods.
