Color Name: Black
Let me start off by saying what I wanted in speakers. I needed something very small for my bedside cabinet. I also wanted to be able to use my ipod as an alarm, and wake up to some type of music instead of just 'beep beep' noises. I also was interested in something being easily portable for when I travel.

My search for speakers: I looked all around. Most iHomes that let you listen to 'your music' are really large and literally took up my entire nightstand (which is very small). Even the smaller ones are typically way too large to even think about traveling with. Then I looked at a smaller JBL speaker that is a 360 degree speaker ring. That was nice because it was pretty flat and not huge, but if I left the power on at night, I heard a very obvious humming noise, which when you're sleeping seems extremely loud. I continued my search onto the SkullCandy Pipe speaker. I had high hopes for that, but my iPod wouldn't fit in it with the case on, and taking off the case every night would be a big hassle. Finally I decided to try these. I have seen these online on the Apple website before, but was just skeptical because I figured since they were so small, the sound would be crappy. However, I tried them anyway because I was out of other options.

Now about the product: They came in a dinky questionable package, and were even smaller than I thought! Only a couple inches tall each, even when 'expanded' like it shows in the picture. It comes with one cord which hooks up to both speakers. the ipod or other device you are playing sound from, and a usb port. That means you can even just use your computer to charge them, or plug them into your ipod usb charger in the wall.

I bought these directly through iHome. They were very quick to ship. I also found an online 20% coupon that made the price a no-brainer. ($10 cheaper and free shipping!!) Can't say enough good things about these little speakers. I took them with me on my trip to South America. Never had any problems with them what so ever. A word of caution though... The magnets in the speaker bases are strong; so be careful around hard-drives and other sensitive magnetic materials. I read in one review where someone set these speakers on top of there laptop and it destroyed their hard-drive!! The sound quality is excellent and the battery life is very good. The speakers come with a single proprietary cable with it's own built in clip for cable management. As others have stated the cable is a little unwieldy and could be a tad longer but truly does not diminish my impression of these little guys. Also, there is no volume control on the speakers themselves; so you must use the source to regulate volume. iHome's Customer Service is top notch and they kept me informed during the entire purchasing process. My only concern with these speakers is the cable - specifically if you lose it they are no longer functional. Overall - really great little speakers with a very classy appearance!!!

Color Name: Black
I had the iHM60 single mini-speaker and was very impressed with its loud clear sound and utility (can be used stand-alone with just a standard 3.5mm-to-3.5mm audio cable)so decided to try these stereo paired model. Big mistake for these reasons:

1.The cable supplied with these speakers is a tangled bulky nightmare. It is also totally proprietary, meaning you can only use this bulky cable even if you want to just use one speaker. This is because iHome removed the 3.5mm standard audio jack they provided on their iHM60 single speaker, so you can only use their USB 'spider-legged' cable supplied to get audio into speaker.

2.These speakers are definitely not as loud as their original iHM60.

3. You cannot daisy chain them like the iHM60 single.

The trade off to get stereo sound from small speakers is just not worth it, trust me. Get two or more iHM60 models and daisy chain them instead. There is not enough difference between stereo and mono sound on small speakers and the HUGE disadvantage of not being able to use charged speakers stand-alone without the huge dual-USB charging cable attached is a BIG negative factor.

Dear iHome, Why oh why did you not keep the iHM60's standard audio input jack with these speakers so they could be used without your HUGE DUMB PROPRIETARY MONSTER CABLE attached?!

I bought these speakers to use with a netbook computer because the built-in speakers were weak, had very little volume, and had no bass whatsoever. These speakers solved the problem, plenty of volume and fantastic sound (really good bass and treble for palm size speakers). Recommended for laptops/netbooks with poor quality speakers.

lost most control of my fingers, body, have constant spasms & tremors (post-polio) now throat Cancer ,so pleaqe bear with me, it hurts like hell 2 type or move(but i ain't dead yet doggitt!)

I did' expect these small units 2 create such good sound. And being able 2 recharge is a plus. I was running an old inmotion origional ipod unit (which i love and refuse 2 give up) but I have no problem now. The sound if good enough 4 my bedroom and the speakers are easy 4 me 2 move around even in my weakened state. Hook up was a breeze - like 30 seconds or so. I really never expected this quality of sound & they look pretty cool or since they are small they are easy 2 hide (in the open - no oe would even think they were speakers)
Looking at the black pair now 4 the ole ladys room computer or 4 my eeepc..
