but the best system I found to work with these speakers is ...

ED, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I have an iw1 and 2 i2w's. They work perfectly. I would state that the ihome apps work well for setting up your system, but the best system I found to work with these speakers is Whaale. It has been great reliable, and I just purchased another iw1 as the prices are falling I may get more as the Whaale App will allow up to 6 airwave speakers. Great sound, no problems.

Could be a great speaker but abandoned by iHome

Guy, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: I've tried several Airplay speakers and settled on this one for it's simple elegant looks but it could have been better and iHome may have completely abandoned it. There haven't been any updates and every now and then I have to name the speaker again even though it doesn't look like there are any power loss issues. Also, I'm not sure if you can even set this up with a lighting cable. The idea is great. Just pick up the speaker and move it anywhere.

Rechargeable battery did not last

David, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought it Nov. 2012, by April 2014 the rechargeable batteries would not hold a charge. Otherwise, the unit worked pretty well, but what's the point of a wireless, battery powered portable speaker that's not really portable after 18 months?

Don't bother unless you are an apple product user

Careful consumer, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: Don't waste your time or money on this unless you have ipad or iphone. When following the instructions exactly, the internet address given gets no response at all making this useless except to manually hook up to ipod. Thought I was doing something wrong and waited until I could get someone to help and then it was too late to return. The worst thing I have ever bought on amazon.

Not bad

Colter L., Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: For a wireless speaker setup it's not bad. Having 3 different apps (and thats not including the paid ones) makes the company look disorganized and scattered. One unified app to adjust settings and whatever else is a better solution. Outside of that, the speakers perform well.

Sounds great, when it works

EdJ, Crutchfield
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Nice looking and sounding speaker. But always had intermittent problems with it dropping off the network, especially if it was moved. Even when other devices have 5 bars, the iW1 would drop. I am not sure if that was an AirPlay issue or an iW1 issue; either way it was a problem. Then after a year, the speaker will not "boot". Will not even work using the auxiliary jack; is essentially useless.
  • Pros: Nice Looking Sounds good when it works
  • Cons: Unreliable Expensive

Best Airplay for $180

Rafael "The tech guy", Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: At first I was not sure about buying this Airplay speaker because of the "Wifi Issues" or sound while using the AirPlay. I'm been using it a lot lately, here are my 2 cents: Recommendation: * Make sure you have a strong wifi coverage, if your coverage is weak buy extra wifi router/access point to place it around the house (Buy cheap ones,I have this one...
