iHome Alexa Compatible Bedside Clock – solidly built and great sound

This little extra for echo dot is great for the morning alarm and gives great sound to echo dot.

The sound is ok only just better than the dot itself. The clock doesn’t keep good time. The speaker/ clock is not synced with the dot in any way except as a speaker. A bit disapointing if i’m honest 🙁 this could be better.

I bought this as i liked the idea of having the speaker a part of the dot and not connected via bluetooth but a physical connection via the aux port. On first opening the box and feel the weight of the device it struck me that it was solidly made. I removed all the packaging and was happy to that there was batteries already provided for the back up – just needed to removed the pull strip to active it. The controls are not complex, there is a touch strip on the front to lighten or darken the clock on the front and the controls underneath let you set the time. Attaching the dot is simple enough and having an extra usb port for charging phones is a great idea. There is one draw back on the extra usb port, my phone reported it was not charging fully so i’m assuming its a low power usb port. Its fine if you charging your phone over-night but not if you need a quick boostpretty much thats where the wow factor ends, all it really is, is a speaker for the dot with a clock face on the front with optional phone charger. Is it worth the £67 i paid. . I’m not sure i’d buy one at that price for anyone elseedit: since i wrote this, i found that this does charge my phone perfectly, just be careful of the usb cable as not all cables are the same.

Easy to use and i find the phone charging facility great too. Improves the sound quality of the dot and the alarm clock is easy to set and use.

The clock was very easy to set up with my dot , so far no problem.

Very fast delivery, easy setup and a good sound considering it is only for bedroom use.

  • Generally good but occasionally needs powering down
  • Easy to use and worthwhile having
  • echo dot extra

Fantastic makes the dot perfect.

I have bought two of these (for different rooms) and generally speaking they do everything they are supposed to and the sound quality is very good. However occasionally you hear a quiet ‘hum’ coming from the speaker, at which point it is absolutely imperative that you disconnect and reconnect the power supply before asking alexa a question. If you don’t, she bellows at you like an angry dalek (i. Full volume and high distortion). It’s the same problem with both units (and it’s not enough to just disconnect the echo dot, it needs the power removing from the ihome unit) so it must be some common glitch with these. It’s not a major problem as it only happens every couple of weeks – but it’s enough to knock it down from five stars to four.

Cheap but does the job very well.

Best little gadget ever, our only problem, not the item, we have a ipad air, so it did not fit, but as we both have ipod classics not a problem, excellent sound, lovely finish – looks far more expensive than it actually is.

Beautiful sound at affordable price. Excellent product and sound quality perfect. The quality is of high standard and a robust product which was packaged well. Arrived on time and value for money. Would highly recommend this product.

  • I do not regret buying it and so glad she told me about it
  • Fantastic sound quality
  • Good sound, decent bass line

Good size, easy to use, reasonable sound.

I love this docking station, i am able to charge my phone while playing music and the sound quality is just great.

Good size, easy to use, reasonable sound.

Very pleased with product and sound.

This really is an excellent product and it feels like a premium product, with well thought out design. For example the usb port at the back allows me to charge my ipad when not in use, whilst also having the iphone 6 docked on the speaker whilst playing and charging that too. The sound is very sharp and clear and the music would easily fill a large room. I have not used the re-chargeable bit yet, but it has a built in light up charge indicator so you can take it to the garden etc. It’s rear to find a speaker of this size and sound with a portable element. The pictures of the product really do say a lot.

I do not regret buying it and so glad she told me about it. Had never heard of this make before until suggested by an american friend. I do not regret buying it and so glad she told me about it. My old phillips docking station broke after about 4/5 years with it and i insisted on buying another despite everything going wireless now (staying old fashioned on this one) and these becoming less available on the market now. The sound quality for the price is exceptional, very clear and crisp, awesome bass on it too. Can reach very high volume, therefore good for those mad about their music. Lovely sleek design fits in well with any room, the other functions included are also very handy. Would definitely recommend to others.

Good, easy to use,speakers fine.

Only good value ipad mini dock out there. Wasnt sure about buying this unit, especially considering the price. As many other people have said, this is a great value unit for your ipad. Good sound quality and portable, had it in my car this week.

Cheap but does the job very well.

Good value and quick delivery. Reasonably priced and reasonable quality of sound, very pleased with my purchase.

This looks a great product indeed. This looks a great product indeed,.

Good sound, decent bass line. This product makes my chores fly bye. Good sound, decent bass line, love it.

Good, easy to use,speakers fine.

Exactly what it says on the box. With hindsight i would prefer it to also have bluetooth so that i did not need to walk over to control the music. A bluetooth receiver plugged in to aux solved this. However, when powered from the usb, there was a buzz. I was very impressed with the sound quality for pop, jazz and classical and compares very favourably with my other sound boxes.

I love this docking station, i am able to charge my phone while playing music and the sound quality is just great.

Very happy with this docking station. Easily portable, good sound for it’s size.

iHome AirPlay Wireless Stereo Speaker System, Great Product :)

Ideal for itunes and airplay. I was looking for some thing that prolonged my songs library from examine, living home and many others to the kitchen. I appeared at blutetooth but that wouldn’t do the job – so seemed at this and have not been disappointed. It does drop connection – but that is a wifi challenge, not a solution defect and now that i have fastened that i can only say very good issues about this speaker. Perfectly created, good audio (if not really b&w then at the very least bose and appreciably more affordable than a zeppelin) and it is moveable. So now it can go into the backyard garden, upstairs – anywhere i want. And it can even go out of the property to the beach or very similar as it also functions effectively when ‘hard wired’ to an ipod, ipad or iphone. My itunes performs by way of an airport by means of a ‘quality’ hifi system and whilst the ihome is not at that degree it presents a good extension. And ahead of any one opinions- i have two bose sound docks so i have been capable to operate real comparisons :)for convenience and high-quality it actually is the best matter i’ve bought to website link up all my apple units – and my family’s. For hifi in excess of wifi at the rate and dimensions it has no rival – the more potential to enjoy radio on airplay and it is really portability make it eve much more of an important accessory.

Impressive, portable, easy, lovely. . Firstly, this is a lovely piece of kit. The ihome iw1 is a aspect all on it really is have. I have it on top rated of a show cupboard and have persons remark on how placing it is. Secondly it functions effectively, it’s pretty straightforward to set up. There is one thing magical about remaining in a position to acquire your telephone out of your pocket, picking a music or a playlist, hitting the airplay icon and obtaining high-quality seem filling the area. In reality i now use this speaker system to pay attention to radio as a result of my cell phone. It will work excellent with itunes as perfectly. I have examine some evaluations expressing the seem drops. I have seasoned this even so only when either the speaker or telephone is too considerably away from the wifi router. You can have the telephone and speaker facet by facet, it helps make no distinction, it even now has to go by means of the router. I was seeking at docking speaker techniques ahead of i obtained this, however with the new lightening connector making previous docks redundant, airplay is absolutely the way to go. It is really also really worth pointing out that if you leave the speaker system on standby then it will connect instantly to any appropriate idevice that is linked to the wifi community. That usually means, in my case, that my wife can use her iphone to participate in music when she likes as can the children with their ipad.

iHome AirPlay Wireless Stereo Speaker System with Rechargeable Battery for iPod, iPhone and iPad

  • Connect your iPod, iPhone or iPad USB syncing cable and dock to charge and play audio
  • Connect and control your iTunes music library and iTunes remote app for wireless audio anywhere in the home

  • Real time digital signal processor constantly scans audio and restores details lost in today’s compressed audio format
  • Two 3 inch woofers with two one inch high efficiency tweeters for full range audio performance

We found this speaker straightforward to set up and it is effective properly from an iphone ipad or laptop, straight off itunes. We have had a issue with the rechargeable battery not long lasting pretty very long but as we seldom require to move it, that won’t trouble us. General, after three months use we are pretty satisfied with it.

Definitely brill, appears amazing. Purchased as a xmas pressie on my advice, so happy i got it.

A pair of makes an attempt to set up correctly but fantastic audio good quality. Took a few of tries to set up thoroughly but excellent seem quality.

iHome AirPlay Wireless Stereo Speaker System with Rechargeable Battery for iPod, iPhone and iPad : Best option for reasonably priced airplay speaker. I was looking for ages for a decently priced airplay speaker, and this seems to be the only option if you want a portable, reasonably good speaker with airplay built in. The wireless stuff was as easy to set up as i had hoped – i used my ipad2 to download the app that allows connection to your wifi network – it took literally 2 minutes. I have used it for only one day, but the sound is pretty good, and the airplay seems as robust as the airports i’ve used in the past. It looks really nice in a kind of minimalist modern way, its quite heavy but in a reassuring way, and the sound is good enough for my uses as a non-audiophile that wants a simple way to play music from my ipad2 without cables or a complicated dongle system. Please note, that streaming from iphone 4s seems to not work at the moment, so you might want to wait for a software update if that is your only ios device.
