The iPulse looks silver in the ad on the website but it is actually white, so I was dissapointed about that, but I can live with white. It is no enormously great sound system. It is not bad either, but don't expect Bose. It is very cute with a cool little light show that pulses to the beat of your music on the front. The light show can be turned on or off on the back of the product. You can also keep your ipod plugged into the socket all the time, so it is always charged. It has a three buttons on the front. One for power, one for up volume and one for down volume. The buttons are large so it is easy for older people or children to use. The buttons also have a nice little blue backlight that creates a pleasant effect.
I like to listen to the iPulse when we are cooking dinner in the house. The volume is about perfect for that use. I can still hear chit chat, and it is not overwhelming, but loud enough to groove to. I also like to use it as a sound system for my computer. It adds a little kick to the video games.
