Summary: I bought this for my 23 year old daughter.....she asked for an iHome Boombox & I thought, Wow! I found the perfect item. She thanked me & lied that she loved it but came clean in time for me to return it. It doesn't have Bluetooth, doesn't take the latest iPod or the iPhone 5! So needless to say, make sure, if buying this as a gift, you know what the giftee expected. This is dated if you are keeping up with the latest technology.....which most young people do....
Summary: I went through three portable units before I found this one. I really like the sound quality and consistency it has picking up where I left off on my iPhone tunes. I wish it had a memory for the radio portion. The unit has 5 central EQ controls that are programmed in but no presets for radio stations and an annoying reset feature when you turn it off it consistently returns the dial to 87.5.
Summary: For the size of the speakers and the unit the sound is not too good. I've only had the unit for 3 weeks and the lights are already fading out and the volume and tuning knobs had to many turns to increase and decrease, everything else is ok. Hope iHome makes a new one with the same form but with better conditions. Thanks!!
Summary: No way to save FM presets. No iPhone 5 support (it literally wont fit in the unit). FM tuning knob takes way more turns than should be needed for locating a station. Poor quality antenna; no reception to any stations indoors. Very cheap overall feel; flimsy plastic handle. Smaller than it looks in pictures. The price on this unit should be $89-99 tops.
Summary: I don't normally buy things for the looks, but the design of this boombox hooked me the first time I saw it. Eagerly awaited it's arrival in the mail. My plan was to replace an old stereo in my room for private listening, with a line-in to my iPad stand. I was also sold on the idea of tossing some D's in there and jamming outside. On my bookshelf, the thing looks like a work of art. Unfortunately...the sound is not anything to write home about.
Summary: .... denn für die Lautsprecher gäbe es satte 5 Punkte: Die sind wirklich eine Klasse für sich. Das viel bemühte Wort "kristallklar" erscheint hier mal angebracht. Wer also einen Verstärker für sein i-Dings sucht, wird hier richtig gut bedient. (Andere Tonquellen lassen sich per 3,5 mm Klinke einspeisen). Aber ich will keinen Hausaltar für einen Apfel, sondern ein Radio mit möglichst gutem Klang. Kanaltrennung und Tuning sind prima.
