It worked great for the first two months then things started going ...

Madison Yamane, Amazon
5 days ago
  • Summary: I bought this iHome product in September before heading to college. It worked great for the first two months then things started going wrong. The USB input will no longer charge my iPhone, nor will the dock on the stereo. Neither will play music anymore either. I was previously using it to amplify the sound for my iPhone alarm, and this also failed to work, causing me to sleep in for a class.

It's great. I especially like the dimming feature

Kathy, Amazon

  • Summary: It's great. I especially like the dimming feature. Sound is fine. As others have noted, you can't dock your iPhone 6 if it has a cover on it. This is too bad. I modified my cover with scissors so it would dock properly, but the makers should realize that most of us have some kind of protective cover on our phones. I had an iHome product for my iPhone 4, which had several inserts for various docking options. My phone fit on that one with a sturdy leather case.

Great alarm clock

Michelle Parr, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Initially I had a major issue, as I never rec'd the item. 2 days past the time it was supposed to be delivered, I contacted the company and found out that somehow it was never shipped (although I was charged right away) The issue was corrected immediately and I rec'd the item on the 12th. Great alarm clock, great sound, I love how you can sync the time on the clock just by putting your phone on it.

Poor docking design

Dissatisfied, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Though the clock radio had many of the features we wanted; the key feature of the iPhone docking capability failed. The device could not link to the phone with any kind of case on it. We tried a variety of cases, some very thin, but they still couldn't link. Since there was no USB port we couldn't use our charger cord to connect. We returned this unit and purchased one with wireless Bluetooth capabilities and a USB port.

Great Docking Station

KC21, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Love this docking station. Works great with my iPhone 5S. My favorite features are the different alarm options. I like that I can choose a normal buzzer, my music, or the radio. I also like that I can change the brightness of the clock light. My only con is sometimes it can be a little hard to undock my phone. It seems to stick at times. Even so, I would recommend and buy this product again.

Doesn't work with an iPhone with any type of case

L. Patton "book lover", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I was extremely disappointed with this iHome. Previously I owned a different ihome for several years and never had an issue. However, this iHome will not charge/play music from an iPhone with an extremely thin case. My case on my iPhone 6 is very, very thin and will not work with the ihome. Returned.

Good, but limited

Kyle J. Schroeder, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: FM only radio, lightning dock for iPod, iPhone works well and is spring loaded to hold device against support. Will not adapt to iPad as is. Limited volume, but built for music. No adjustment in treble, bass or balance. Music sounds fine, but listening to talking voices on radio has too much bass. Time sync in nice. Overall, nice small footprint, good functionality for the money. Works well for how we use it.

If your phone is in a case, this device will require some extra efforts to work!

tom b, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Good device if your IPhone6 is not in a case. If its in a case, you will most certainly have to shave down the little bar to which the charging connector is positioned. I used a Dremel (sp?) and a file to shave down about 1.5mm and my wife's iPhone eventually fit fine. Wish they'd accounted for the fact that most people have cases...

... home because the charger on my other one went bad and i now have an iphone 6

andrew rodgers, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: I got a new I home because the charger on my other one went bad and i now have an iphone 6. The Charge port swivels which is nice, because it prevents you from breaking it or anything, the only down fall is that i can't charger it with my case on no matter how hard i try, but the upside is my case is rather easy to remove. The only thing i wish this had was the ability to set more alarms and choose if that alarm is 5days or 7days a week like my old ihome.
