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.

  • Summary: great with airplay. Learning how it works with iTunes was a bit of a hassle and the remote won't work with iTunes streaming off a computer.

Convenient, Shareable Home Speaker

Samuel Baughman, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Reasonably powerful sound, and very easy to share with guests that I give WiFi access to. Biggest complaint isn't with the speaker itself but with Apple's AirPlay; if I AirPlay music out to the speaker, I will also get my phone's sound effects through there as well. That can be a little of a surprise to others when i get a text while listening to music. Putting the phone into silent/vibrate mode avoids that issue.

Sounds great, inexpensive, but I sometimes lose the signal.

Tim, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: The speaker sounds great, especially for the price. The only issue I've run into is that when another device signs in to my wifi (like if I open my laptop) then the signal cuts out for a second. That could be an issue with my router, although it doesn't happen with other devices connected to that same router.

It is exactly what i thought it would be. Would recommend.

Maria Guillemette "Molly Mc B", Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: It is exactly what I thought it would be. It is adequate to fill most of my house with music from either my iPhone or PC. I'll keep an eye open for a good deal to get a second one for my up-stairs. I did have a little trouble setting it up for the first time (couldn't get the iPlay option to turn on) but I got through it with some googl-ing.

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.

Great Airplay Speaker

Robb H. Mitchell, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Initially thought it was Bluetooth like in my car. It took a little more to set up but after that it is great sound. It does not do real well if you move about a lot or there are other things going on with your wi-Fi network. A very pleasant sound at a reasonable price.

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...

sound great would have been better with a rechargable battery

Glen cowin, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: iW2 is a great speaker which was easy to connect to my wireless network and works well. Would have been better if when it was called wireless it did not have to be connected to a power source to work.
