3 Big data security analytics techniques

Ace at bass

There are few other features either, such as an equaliser or radio and alarm functions. The iPad also has to be docked in its upright position, which means that you can’t flip it into landscape mode to play videos.

That syncing feeling

One useful feature, though, is the inclusion of a USB port which will allow you to sync the iPad with your computer. I did find this rather handy, as I tend to swop music and video around quite a bit on my 16GB iPad. However, it’s irritating that the iPad switches to its own internal speaker while syncing.

The iMM747’s saving grace is its audio quality, which is better than I’d expected given the modest size of the speakers. The bass, in particular, is quite emphatic, and the speakers kick out a pretty decent volume too. The higher frequencies do get a bit frayed as you approach maximum volume but if you’re just using the iMM747 as a desktop or bedroom speaker then you probably won’t need to have it at full blast very often.

Verdict

To be honest, the iMM747 is a respectable but fairly modest pair of speakers, distinguished primarily by the fact that it doesn’t have any real competition at the moment. The omission of a remote control is something of an own-goal too. If you just want a simple set of speakers for your desk or bedside table then the iMM747 will do the trick, but it’s a shame that iLuv didn’t take the opportunity to try and come up with something a bit more ambitious. ®
