    Great Unit, but the iPhone app is buggy, August 18, 2011

    Just got this today and played around with it for a while. I was thinking of buying the iP9 last week, but am so glad I didn’t because this one has been listed on Amazon since then at almost the same price.

    I’ve tested the alarms, which work as they should. While the unit itself has the 2 alarms similar to the older version of this (iP9), the app, which is free to download through the app store, can have many more alarms. The features I really enjoy on the app are being able to choose “bedtime” music, and choose specific songs to play to fall asleep to or wake up to, and you can even set the volume on your individual alarms. The app also has things like the weather displayed on the alarm screen, which is always nice to know when you wake up. What I also really enjoy about this when compared to the regular iPhone alarm is being able to set the time for the snooze. The unit comes with the docks to support multiple devices, but I like that I can also plug my iPhone in without there being a dock since I have a pretty thick case on my iPhone. Another great feature is that by the press of a button on the device, you can sync the time on the clock to match your iPhone time. The one con I have found in the few hours I’ve had this is that the time does not remain synced, but is not off by more than a minute (this is stated in the user manual as well).

    Overall, the fact that I can set the alarms and more from an app makes this alarm clock definitely worth it. The sound quality is also really great and doubles well as speakers in the bedroom.

    The app is called iHome+Sleep (FREE), and there is also another one that you can use to wake up to internet radio stations (iHome+Radio) which costs $2.99, although I haven’t tried that one out yet.

    UPDATE 11/29/11:
    I’ve had this for a few months. I’m not as impressed with the App as I was at the beginning. I’ve found bugs in it and it’s failed me a few times (luckily I was never late). The alarms on the unit itself work very well. Maybe I just haven’t figured it out perfectly, but the app alarms haven’t really worked smoothly for me. Regarding other things…I love the nap feature that is both on the app and the unit. Also to note, the alarm DOES go off when the phone is on silent.

    I reduced the stars I gave it from 5 to 4 because of the app, but I still recommend this iHome, especially since the former version that has fewer features is more expensive now as it’s being phased out.

    Great product!, November 6, 2011

    I am a speaker “connoisseur.” Therefore, I know and have used many speakers before. The i-home is a great product for so many reasons.

    1.) It is very small and fairly light.

    2.) The system has a form of an operating system, that can be updated through your ipod or iphone.

    3.) There are adapters so your generation or type of ipod/iphone will fit nicely.

    4.) You can set 2 alarms, with advanced settings such as:
    – the time
    – choose weekends/weekdays for it to go off
    – alternating buzzer or a choice of a digital am/fm radio station
    – can set a volume for the radio alarm

    5.) Day Light Saving setting

    6.) there is an mp3/auxiliary jack on the back

    7.) great sound quality for the price!

    8.) Equalizer that changes:
    – treble
    – bass
    – Turn off/on 3D sound
    – 3D sounds fills the room
    – gives the music for depth and quality

    9.) easy to set up

    10.) Digital clock and radio

    11.) Change the brightness for the LED screen

    The Sound:

    The sounds is great for what you are paying for. The speakers can be heard from my room on the third floor in the kitchen on the first. The iHome has the great 3D sound setting and Reson-8 speaker chambers with a bass export on the back. Therefore, the speakers music fills the room and the bass has some punch. I have hooked up mine to my dual subwoofer, so the sound is phenomenal. I have actually replaced my old sound system for the iHome and my woofer! Though, these are small speakers, so don’t expect to get too much bass with these. They are perfect for alarm clocks, but if you want to use it as a speaker system, use a subwoofer and attach it to the iHome via the 3.5mm aux jack on the back. A problem is that the treble can be a bit “tinny” for a few songs, but only on 3/300 songs on my mp3 player does that happen.

    Overall:

    I would recommend this product to anyone looking for one of the best alarm clocks on the market (especially for the money)! If you would like to use it as a speaker system, i would recommend adding a subwoofer, since the small size of the speakers tend to indicate less bass. This is probably one of the best products (that have to do with music) I have ever purchased.

    Great sound! Beware of App-Enhanced, September 2, 2011

    This thing was easy to set up, looks very slick, is quite compact but it has a HUGE sound. Who would have thought a clock radio with bass and treble control! Well, I guess IHome did… Love the dimmable LCD and backlighting on the buttons. I’ve been laying a handkerchief over my previous clock radio because it was too bright next to the bed. One word of warning…. The “App-Enhanced” is something that is NOT built into the radio, it just means that it will play apps from the IPod/Phone when it’s plugged in. I have an IPod Classic which is not connected to the net so I will not be able to listen to internet radio as I expected. I compared this unit to the Logitech Squeezebox and probably would have spent the extra dough to access Spotify and other streaming music sources. Oh well, I’ll keep it because it sounds so good.
