iKaraoke version 2 has just landed! This is now compatible with the new iPods, including iPod Touch (Generation 1 and 2), iPod Nano (Generation 3 and 4), iPod Classic and all other docking iPods! This now connects to your stereo via a line out socket and cable (included).
Even those of us who can't hold a note in a bucket enjoy a bit of a sing song. The X Factor proves that every week. But now thanks to Griffin's brilliant iKaraoke you can sing along to your favourite tunes without being laughed at by an entire nation. You won't even have to go to a karaoke bar or strut around the bedroom in your pants yelling into a hairbrush.
iKaraoke is a truly ingenious iPod accessory that sends the music from your iPod to your stereo minus the lead vocals, so you can step up to the mic and sing your favourite tunes without the likes of Beyonce and Bono cramping your style.
How? Well, a clever button quietens the frequency carrying the vocals, leaving the backing track for you to sing along to. Clever eh? You can hook iKaraoke up to your stereo via the line-in cable. You can even pause, scan forward/backward, add reverb to your warbling or temporarily drop the original vocals back in.
Best of all iKaraoke lets you sing along to absolutely anything you fancy, not just hackneyed (but brilliant) classics like Summer of '69 and My Way. Whether you're keeping it real rapping to Eminem, Cookie Monster-ing it along to some grindcore metal in your car, or vocally butchering a Rat Pack fave at an iKaraoke party, this idiot-proof gizmo is guaranteed to make you feel like a proper star. Or a proper plonker, depending on your vocal prowess.
Okay, so the slender microphone is a bit Nolan Sisters looking, but you won't care about that when you're singing the "and through it aaall" bit off Angels. Besides, I'm in the Mood for Dancing is quite a challenge. Especially if you're doing it wearing a sequined boob tube and sprayed-on leggings. So we hear.
We reckon iKaraoke is going to sell faster than tickets to an Abba reunion so hurry up and hit Buy. All together now: "At first I was afraid, I was petrified "

I WANT ONE I WANT ONE I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lewis Bryan, Arbroath - 30th March 2009
It's good and it works for most songs but if the track is mono (ie: it doesn't have the vocals on a different frequency) then it doesn't work. Other than that, it's great. Michael Morton, Bushey, Herts. - 4th May 2007
A really niftly little product! Lots of fun and easy to use! Scott, Essex - 1st May 2007
