For those looking for a docking system capable of combining portability, style and robustness, iHome offers the iH19, a product that integrates all the aforementioned characteristics: in addition to the rounded and sinuous design, and the natural resistance, the gadget also stands out for its properties techniques offered.
It has a slot in which to insert the iPod and connect it through a cable to the dock connector. The case closes through a zip, but on the upper side some commands and functions remain accessible: the 'hold' button, the jack for an adapter from the mains, to keep your iPod charged without having to take it out of the case, and a audio output, to be able to listen to music even with headphones or earphones, if you wish.
The aforementioned controls are hidden by a band bearing the iHome logo, while the main controls, arranged to interface with a remote control, are instead located on the front side, between the two speakers. There is also a comfortable cord to carry the system, and two hooks to fix it comfortably to a bicycle or scooter.
Robust and durable, the iH19 is also waterproof, so it can withstand sub-optimal weather conditions. A functional and comfortable accessory, which we could for example recommend to athletes who would like to bring their music with them even during the most adventurous excursions.
