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.
