Summary: It's the perfect shape for resting my Zune/iPod on and watching videos. Also nicely compact for portability - I use it to listen to music in the bathroom. It gives good bass volume and good clarity for the rest of the range. You do need to use fresh/powerful batteries to give the full sound.
Summary: Like other reviewers, I was initially very pleased with my purchase and even found the machine to be very good on batteries. I can't comment on its sound at high volume, though, as this speaker sits beside my pillow at night. At low volume, it sounds great. Unfortunately, about a week after purchase, it started emitting a loud motor-type sound that almost completely drowned out the music.
Summary: My girlfriend bought this for me about a year ago to play with my mp3 player and it is still going strong. Despite what I have heard on reviews of it failing on other people, it hasn't happened to me yet. It sounds great for the size and does what its supposed to do. I take it to the drivein theater we have in town, and play the movie through it via my cowon d2's fm reception. It's been awesome for that, and this thing is plenty loud enough.
Summary: This speaker is convenient and easy to deal with. But, if I turn up my iPod, I get feedback. Worse, if I put my iPod on the little convenient ledge, I get feedback. So I have to put my iPod as far away from the unit as it will go to get any quality at all.
Summary: When I first bought this device it worked wonderfully. The sound was good and the bass feature wasnt bad. After a week of using it however, the speakers busted. One day I simply turned it on and it played for about 10 seconds and then stopped. When it stopped a little crackle of static was heard coming from the speakers. It doesnt work anymore other than for 10 seconds. Definitely try another one if youre thinking about getting an ipod stereo.
Summary: WOW!!!, what a piece of junk. This speaker is a joke. The sound quality is terrible. The iPod just lays on a pull out piece of plastic and just plugs into the headphone jack. The sound was never good and it died after a week and a half. I returned it and i bought the iH27 for $49 at costco and it works way better plus its a dock as well.
Summary: I can't believe anyone would say this is a good product for the money. I picked this as my 10 year service anniversary gift from work. It works as stated and is very small. Well, so is the sound quality. I wasn't going to pick this because it was so small and I figured that there was no way it could sound good. The reviews I read stated otherwise. The only complaint was that the speakers would blow easily if played too loud. That part of the reviews is correct.
Summary: I bought this, concerned that the sound quality would no be so good. Surprisingly, it is great, esp. for the price!! The only reason I did not give this 5 stars was because there is no way to plug this into an outlet. You must use 4 AAA batteries.
Summary: I got this iHome, and it was working fine. I really liked it. The bass was good, and it worked perfectly. After about 2 weeks the bass went out. I couldn't turn it up very high with out it adding static. It still worked though, so I still used it. Then a week later I turned it on and it wouldn't work at all with out static. It sounds like crap.
