Tunes Explorer Wireless review

Is this a diamond hidden away in the rough?

Our Verdict

A useful accessory, but one that doesn't quite deliver on its potential


  • A boon to the lazy


  • Screen could be bigger

There are so many iPod-styled peripherals out there that you'd be forgiven for overlooking this chunky little fella. Operating as a remote for your audio app, it allows you to play any music without having to sit at your PC.

The Explorer scores over other remotes with the embedded LCD screen, which means you don't have to see the monitor, or even be within 15 metres of the computer to play your music. Unfortunately the screen's a bit on the small side for such a chunky remote, but other than it's a handy tool for the terminally lazy.
