Summary: Very nice design however. Advertisement said for ipad, iPhones, iPods all universal. Now I have to go through the headache of return. This is not universal. Not for iPhone 5,6 or ipad mini. Need to correct your add.
Summary: Sounds okay for a cheap speaker dock. Does not charge the iPod off of the internal batteries. But the biggest slight is that it doesn't work with an iPod Nano 3G. Works fine with the iPod touch and iPhone 4S, but not with my trusty nano. The unit cannot be closed with an audio in cable connected, but it does close alright with the power cable plugged in.
Summary: Anyone who expects these little speaker units - as a category -to sound like a serious theater system is being unreasonable. This iHome unit has clear clean very pleasant room filling sound. Equally important, it is nicely built and the controls and audio sensing logic (auto-on, etc) work as intended on my iPod 5.5gen and iPad 2. A nice touch is that when you adjust the volume, it shows up on the device screen. Thoughtfully designed and well executed.
Summary: I'm returning this. It doesn't fit my iphone or ipad, and it doesn't state on the product description which generation of apple product it is supposed to fit. Frustrating. I can't speak to the quality of music.
