Ok sound, but solid connectivity and ease of use.

  • Summary: The sound is missing the bottom end, but overall works pretty well. No connectivity issues. Very easy to setup. The wife loves that she can play music without having to put her phone down and walk away. She can keep it in her pocket.

Doesn't worth more than the 60$ offer

  • Summary: I had an eye for air play speakers for quite long now. But the price was too much for any speaker out there. I saw this with a discount lately and I grabbed two of those. If I had given 170-200$ per each, I would be very dissapointed now.

  • Summary: Seemed slightly complicated for initial set up - Apple instructions not user friendly. The signal drops randomly: "Air Drop" and have to reset it. Sound is great!

It's OK at best.

  • Summary: After reading all the other reviews stating that this speaker cuts out, I decided that Apple must have fixed that issue so I bought it. And guess what? It cuts out. It is great for what I use it for which is sleeping while playing a repeating storm track in my bedroom.

Didn't stay set-up...

  • Summary: I set it up to my wifi and then it forgot it? I had to do it again a day later. I have great internet and it at some points skipped a little bit when trying to AirPlay my music. It works most of the time though so hence the three stars.

  • Summary: Streaming is intermittent and broken up. My router is top of the line and still can't get it to work well with the iW1 speaker I already had. Will not purchase again. If anyone has any trouble shooting advice it is well appreciated as Apple was NO help.

Works sometimes, purchased through discount jungle, not a new product

Craig Mirabella, Amazon

  • Summary: Received it last week - third one of these. This one isn't so great as the others. Music drops out a lot, probably due to wi-fi range. My biggest issue is that it's not "new". I plugged it in and used the iHome app to set it up, and it told me that the "name" of the unit, which is usually "iHome iW1...

  • Summary: Purchased the IW1 for my teenage son who listens to his IPod all over the house and outside as well - so neded a portable speaker system. Great battery life and nice features and portability is a breeze. However, the bass response is not impressive as you max out the volume.
  • Pros: Great styling and portability.
  • Cons: Sound quality diminishes as you increase the volume.

Sounds great but....

Rob, Crutchfield
22 December 2011
  • Summary: Like several other reviewers the first one I received did not work but Crutchfield promptly replaced it. The second time around it took a week to finally connect to my WI-FI network (I had to walk away for several days).
  • Pros: great sound quality, wireless, Air Play compatibility
  • Cons: set-up was very difficult, wireless connectivity frequently drops
