  • Summary: Connection range is limited to your wifi range. NO BLUE-TOOTH is a biggest mistake. No Wifi means you need charging cable or aux cable.

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?

Easy set up but poor audio quality

Directly2U, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: I was so excited to receive this wireless speaker. The set up was very easy and straightforward. But that is where the good ends. The audio quality on this speaker is terrible. Volume does not get very high and at the higher end it leaves much to be desired. I tried this out for a couple hours and packed it back up and now it's being returned and I will get the Bose system I should have initially purchased.

sounds good but software needs work

S Rempel, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: I'm very happy with the sound of the iW1 AirPlay speaker but I am very frustrated how it doesn't hold onto my wireless network. Once every couple of days it drops off and doesn't reconnect automatically. When it drops off the network I have to turn off the entire speaker and wait for it to reboot before it will connect to the wireless again. I keep hoping that a firmware update will fix this but still no fix.

iHome iW1 Airplay--good but not great

Joe Terry, Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: This product works well intermittently, but loses connection frequently. It seems to have a weak wireless receiver compared to other wireless devices that were used in the same part of the house without any issue. It did not perform to our satisfaction so we returned it.
