In the box, you get the alarm clock, AC adapter, a button cell battery for the alarm clock to keep your settings in case of a power outage, and the tiny remote. I think the remote already had its own battery in it, but if not, it came with one.
This is not a "pretty" alarm clock when an iPod/iPhone isn't attached. It looks kind of like a weird speaker or a miniature black bandshell, with a big circular gap taking up 80% of its face. But, when the iPod is attached, and especially when it's attached and you have the iHome+Sleep app on your screen (or a movie), I think it looks techie-sexy (but still appropriate for an 11 year old).
APPS FOR THE iHOME ALARM CLOCK:
iHOME+SLEEP (free, pretty darn necessary)
You're going to need the iHome+Sleep app to take full advantage of the alarm clock's functions. This is probably a no-brainer to previous iHome users, but we're new to this so I was surprised we had to download something to properly use a clock. The iHome+Sleep app is available for FREE through iTunes.Read more ›
I had the opportunity to try this iHome iA63 and figured that like all the others, I would need to take off the case to use it. Well I was wrong...it works great with the case on. Without a doubt, that is the best feature of this product and almost in itself warrants a 5 star rating in my book, however, there is one fault that everyone looking for a speaker system for their ipod/iphone will want. The sound is a little muffled and you really need to turn up the volume to hear more than 10 feet away. The rotating dock is fine if you want to watch something on your phone but since I have this at home, I would rather watch my TV, so this feature isnt necessary to me. The digital clock is very easy to read and the alarm works nice but I would expect that of an alarm clock anyway.
So to summarize, I recommend this product especially if you have a case around your phone.
One other thing that annoys me more the longer I have this system, is that the clock MUST be positioned lower than your head in order to be legible (so a nightstand might work but a dresser won't); otherwise you see a bright horizontal strip of light above the clock time (sort of like there's a black paper covering the light inside the unit, but it doesn't reach the whole way up). On the nights i'm more sensitive to light, it's enough to keep me from sleeping. On the nights when I'm not as sensitive, it's still bright enough that my eyes can't adjust well enough to read the relatively-dim clock time.Read more ›
That said - I have a few comments.
Sound Quality - This is the thing that I always look for first when I'm deciding on a dock, and many reviewers give vague (if any) comment about it. This unit is designed to be an advanced clock-radio - NOT an audiofiles dream machine. In that, the sound quality is much better than I expected. Perfect for my use (I have it on my desk at work so I can listen/watch things while I'm working). Much better than your average clock-radio - but if you're expecting "Bose" sound or super deep base - this is not your unit. I am more than satisfied with the sound. Just be aware that you're buying an alarm clock, NOT a THX movie system.
Functionality - The clock sync is awesome. Makes time setting LITERALLY as easy as pushing a button. The rotate feature CLEARLY makes the unit great - it's so hard to find docks DESIGNED to let you view things in horizontal mode. I can put my iPhone into the dock WITH it's protective cover (moshi glaze)on! This sets the unit apart from ALL other docks I've had. The side adjustment for width is great - there is no depth adjustment, but you don't need it since the connector is designed to flex to accomodate width. BEWARE, however - if you have one of the old gen 5.5 ipods, I don't think they'll fit (they are much thicker than any of the others). SECOND BEWARE - My iPhone 3gs fits nicely with it's moshi glaze ON, but just barely. I don't think the connector will accomodate larger protective covers (like otterbox for example).
The unit is designed to work with iHome+Sleep (free) or iHome+Radio (not free) software. I downloaded iHome+Sleep and I find it a little user UNfriendly.Read more ›
