Summary: This is my first iHome I have ever bought. First I'd like to say my iPhone 4s has an otterbox defender case and this does not cooperate with the iHome. I do not recommend buying the extensions to plug your phone + case to the iHome. I noticed when I did this with my Otter Box Defender case around my iPhone4s, since the extender raises the phone up, it also causes the weight of the phone + case to lean back - which I believe can break your iHome connector or at least...
Summary: I was really surprised by the excellent sound quality of this unit. I would have given it 5 stars but unfortunately my kids ipod wouldn't communicate with the ihome because the connection point on the ipod has a bent pin, therefore we were not able to use the ihome to its fullest capabilities. She can still play her music over the ihome but has to use the headphone jack. Make sure your ipod connection point is in perfect condition!!
Summary: I bought this for the first time at a Walmart. It was ok, average to "decent" sound for an alarm clock, the remote had a very limited angle even with new battery. Unfortunately it fell down 2 feet on the carpet and its iPod connection broke. So I ordered the "new model" from Amazon. What I received didn't look as a "new" model at all. It was less than the previous one, looked and felt cheaper, and the screen was defective.
High quality audio without the expensive Bose price tag!

Summary: I must say I'm very impressed with the sound quality of this radio clock player when played on my iphone 5. The music doesn't sound tiny or inferior when heard through the speakers. Bass and trebel sounds nice and tight (I've played albums like Depeche Mode violator and Metallica Master of Puppets), and depending on your mood, the 3D sound mode makes the music come more alive.
Summary: Despite the fact that this is the first item that pops up when you search "iHome iPhone 5" on Amazon, this product is not in fact compatable with the iPhone 5, which is the reason for the one-star review. That information is not listed anywhere in the product description. I will be returning it, since I bought it specifically to work with an iPhone 5. However, I do in fact own one of these in white that I used for my iPhone 4 and have owned for about 2 years.
Summary: Before ordering I made sure it was compatible with the new iPhone 5 and it said it was but after purchasing it for a Christmas gift we found out it was not. I don't want to have to pay for shipping and handling when I was mislead about the product.
Summary: Sorry to say I bought this for my daughter for graduation, i had bought this several months before I gave it to her. When she got it it worked for ONE day. Then to speakers stopped working. I wanted to send it back, but it was to late for a return. Sounds and looks great but don't make the mistake that I did!!
Summary: My husband loves the feature that allows you to dim the clock. I love that you can have two different alarm times programmed. It has great sound quality. User friendly :) Works with our 4th generation iPod.
