Summary: Hits: The speakers are adequate. Really decent sound, and compact for portability. Lasts long time on a charge (no, I didn't time them). Miss: The cable is a pain in the *ss! It's stiffer and heavier than previous versions of these speakers. Which makes cable management a chore.
Summary: I decided I needed a pair of mini speakers when I realized I could play some soothing lullabyes for my little boy at bedtime. I heard that iHome was a good name to try, so I decided to give them a shot, and since I received these iHM78s, I've been completely satisfied with them.
iHome Rechargeable Mini Speakers - Great Sound, Great Price & Travel Friendly!

Summary: I received the iHome iHM78 Rechargeable Mini Speakers in gunmetal gray. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of sound that these 2 tiny speakers put out. I like the collapsible/accordion style and they also have a magnetic base so they stay together without snapping them to each...
Summary: These are small speakers; each speaker is the about the size of a kiwi. You can't expect them to defy laws of physics. The speakers sound a little hollow(they don't fill the room with a rich sound for sure), but the bass sound is significant in such a small frame.
Summary: I bought this and the at the same time. The sound quality and volume capability is about the same for both. However, I found the iHM60GT less cumbersome to carry from room to room when cleaning, and also to have in the car.
Summary: I have abused my iHM78 speakers for almost two years in adverse conditions and have found them to provide more sound than the small package suggests while holding a charge far longer than advertised. I recommend them to anyone who wants music on the go.
