Summary: I have had iHome products before and had high expectations for this little boombox. The design is incredible and I love the handle. There need to be more speakers in this form factor. The flood of miniature bluetooth "boomboxes" has really limited the market. I wish this model came in a more expensive form with more "oomf" because this speaker, while portable, just doesn't have any depth to it's sound. I don't need my room to shake but here the sound is rather hollow.
Summary: Love it! The comments about it not being very loud especially when running off the battery are correct. But how loud do you need a portable audio player? I use it on the garden and it's plenty loud for me.
Summary: Bought this for my wife in March 2014. Bluetooth range was terrible and sounded weak. FM was constantly a weak signal and worst of all, the radio wouldn't hold a charge after 5 months. I had to keep it plugged in to use it at all for the last month and now it is completely dead. Don't but this product. Spend a little more money and get something better.
Summary: Physical: Durable, semi-water resistant (rain, sprinkler, pool splashed etc.), compact. 4/5 Performance: Very average sound, mid range bass only, not very loud- will fill up a small room. By no means is this a party speaker, but then again I may have missed its purpose. If it isn't plugged in the sound is reduced by at least half which is very inconvenient. FM reception is below average, you have to mess with the antennae all the time.
Summary: Just used this cool radio yesterday on the beach. Windy day and I still got incredible sound. I love the bluetooth connect press and it connects automatically. No guessing, waiting just connects. What can I say about the cool color and great material it is made from. Compared to my Bose, which is difficult to connect to the BT this radio for the price, hands down is excellent.
Summary: It is ok, but had a couple of issues. When hooked to Bluetooth, the full volume is much lower the when on radio mode. Also the tip of the antenna broke off the second time we used it,even though we were careful with it.
