iHome iDM12 Rechargeable Bluetooth Speaker System for iPad/iPhone/iPod Review
13 April 2011
Conclusion: The iDM12 is a very portable, versatile battery powered Bluetooth/wired speaker system. The integrated iPad base/cover is a nice touch – useful even if you’re not primarily using it for an iPad. The sound quality is about where I’d expect at this price, which is a bit higher than the very low end speaker systems, but under the high end ones.
Pros: Portability, versatility, volume, battery life.
Cons: Slight amplifier hum, distortion at higher volume, limited Frequency Response on the low end.
Excerpt: The speaker’s design is quite distinctive, consisting of a simple cylinder that measures just 180mm long and will be really easy to carry around in a backpack or even a jacket pocket. The design is clever too, with a protective cover on the front of the speaker that pops off and unfolds to double up as an iPad stand.
