Gear4 House Party 4

 

This is an iPod dock with speakers behind. It is of course also able to play MP3 files from an MP3 player and it also has an FM radio. So far it has refused to do the washing up, the vacuuming or even the dusting.

It is 27x13x13cm however the last figure the width can be as little as 4.5cm at the top. There is a small section towards the top of the black fabric that allows a red LED screen to show through this says which mode you are in. Aux, FM or iPod. If you...

HouseParty 4 from Gear4

 

This is a neat speaker system for your Apple iPod that also incorporates a good FM radio and can also take input from an external source.

HouseParty 4 review

 

It won't drown out the neighbours, but the HouseParty 4 is a nicely built speaker system.

Swish design, sturdy build, good radio functions

Disappointing sound, retro digital display looks a bit out of place

At £70, the HouseParty 4 isn’t really a throwaway gadget, and it’s meant for the home – there’s no battery compartment to take it out and about. But the average sound from the unit just won’t do your favourite tunes justice and will disappoint all but...

Good but not all is rosy

 

I bought this speaker dock yesterday from Comet, got it home and started playing my music form my ipod touch 2g; initially I thought the sound was really good by testing tracks like Dizzee Rascal - Holiday and David Guetta - Sexy Chick where the bass...

loud sound, good at filling a room, rich bass

can't play music at lower volumes, soft music sounds a bit fuzzy, ipod docking pin is very fragile, the logitech pure-fi anywhere 2 is much better

GEAR4 HOUSEPARTY 4

 

This is a great bit of kit. I have really good hearing and appreciate sound quality, I really found it hard to tell the difference between the Boise and this one. The quality of sound from even 20 mts away is so clear, really great but and value for money

Decent Quality and Charges iPhone 3g

 

I spent a couple of hours in comet, trying to find a speaker system that would charge my iPhone, before purchasing this product. There were only 3 that worked and none where specifically designed to be used with iPhone. The other 2 were a Bose at £299...
