Summary: I bought this with a gift card so I feel like I got my money's worth. If you turn up the volume too much, the speakers start to blare in that uncomfortable way, where the music is no longer decipherable and more of a nuisance. The music will start to hurt your ears so as long as you're using it to mildly enhance your iPhone's or iPod's speakers, I recommend it!
Summary: This Ihome is pretty good for the price. We have used it quite a bit, and have yet had to change the batteries. I love how it plugs into your headphone jack instead of your charging jack... especial since apple decided to change their prong, and I am having to update all my apple accessories! Sound is decent for what you pay for.
Summary: this is ideal for either a phone or mp3 player, but the best use is for my tablet. The sound is pretty good. I wish it had more control over volume to boost it up a bit, but overall for the money this is hands-down the best product to choose. The other great thing about it is that it is lightweight and travels well.
