An App-enhanced Stereo Speaker for iPod and iPhone

The HouseParty 4-Evo is an app-enhanced stereo speaker that’s bursting with sound. With 30W of power available to the HouseParty 4-Evo, the digital amplifier means the speaker effortlessly produces low resonance sounds, crystal clear acoustics and thumping bass. Add that to the 7EQ settings and FM radio, and you’ll find that the 4-Evo offers a great combination of sound, looks, and features to effortlessly fill your home with music.

The HouseParty 4-Evo also comes with a universal iPod/iPhone dock. Removing the need for separate docking wells for each model that you own, the spring-loaded dock is the easy way to quickly free the music inside. What’s more, you can even dock your iPod/iPhone with a case on, meaning less time connecting and more time for your music.

The included remote allows you to control the HouseParty 4Evo from your bed or sofa.
