Yes, the boombox is back, although the iHome iP4 FM Stereo Boombox for iPhone/iPod is a very modern recreation.
Although the look is very much of the past. At first glance, it's an 80s classic, ready to blast out your radio or tapes, albeit in a single shade of black or pink. No tapes here though, you'll have to dock your iPod or iPhone in the centre to get the music.
In terms of features, the iP4 has a pair of 4″ carbon-composite woofers, and two 1″ ferro-fluid cooled tweeters, powered by a class D amp. It’s also got a 5-band graphic equaliser with an LCD screen, and an FM radio, along with a remote control, which is magnetically attached to the top of the boombox. As for power, battery or mains.
Both colours are available right now in the US-version of Urban Outfitters, priced at $199. We suspect they'll be in the UK version in no time at all.
