iKick iK500 Stereo System for iPod

 

This easy-to-use speaker system provides very good, very loud sound.

Good sound and bass quality ; Very loud

Can't run on batteries ; Awkward to transport

At $250, it costs more than I would want to spend on a speaker system (especially since it doesn't have a wide range of features), but the iK500 would be perfect for backyard parties, barbecues, and house parties--provided that the cops in your area...

Kicker iPod Dock Punches You in the Chest With Sound

 

Do you live above me? If not, go ahead and buy this astonishingly bassy, badass iPod dock. The Kicker iKick (iK500) even looks mean: With a Vaderesque design

You can’t get busted for disturbing the peace if you can't hear the cops banging on your door. Achieves ear-stinging volume without distortion. Volume, bass and treble controls are accessible with a poke and pinch of the front-facing knob. Zune owners...

The iPod docks vertically (rather than at an angle), making the screen hard to read. The direction buttons on the remote slow down scrolling. No mic-in for high-decibel karaoke

Review: Kicker iKICK iK500 Stereo System for iPod

 

But unlike perhaps 80% of the speakers we have tested in recent months, the iK500 has something else going for it: seriously impressive audio, and by "seriously impressive," we mean that it sounds good enough to be worthy of consideration regardless of...

As a $350 audio system, currently discounted to $300 only as a "special introductory price," iKICK iK500 isn't groundbreaking: systems such as the Pure-Fi Elite offer more features and similar, if not equivalent, audio quality for less. You can also do...

The KICKER iKICK iK500 Stereo System Review

 

Back in the late 80s, when every spare dime I had went into car stereo components, I bought my first KICKER product. It was a subwoofer speaker box which fit perfectly into the space behind the seats in my silver Alfa Romeo. Never mind that it took up...

The iKick iK500 is exactly what we want an iPod speaker system to be

Capable of amazing volume levels

Heavy, no battery power, pricey

At $US249, it costs more than we would want to spend on a speaker system (especially since it doesn't have a wide range of features), but the iK500 would be perfect for garden parties, barbecues, and house parties — provided that the local authorities...

iKick iK500 review

 

The iKick iK500 is exactly what we want an iPod speaker system to be: a simple, straightforward device that provides clear, precise sound at near-earthquake-inducing levels.

At £179, it costs more than we would want to spend on a speaker system (especially since it doesn't have a wide range of features), but the iK500 would be perfect for garden parties, barbecues, and house parties - provided that the local authority are...

Fun with a very large ?F?, this could be just the thing for some buyers

Goes very loud and can shift air even in a large room

Can get ragged around the top-end with bright recordings

Fancy making some noise? Then check out this loud, and we mean LOUD, iPod speaker system.

Great sound, fantastic volume

Slightly more than we'd want to pay
