Play your music, in any room, wirelessly. With a slick, minimal design, iHome's iW1 is an elegant implementation of Apple's AirPlay technology. Stream your music from AirPlay sources--iTunes, iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad--anywhere you have a home Wi-Fi network. Enjoy remote control of your streaming playback, and digital processing from Bongiovi for uncompromising sound. You can also charge and playback your Apple device via USB, or connect nearly any audio player via an auxiliary input.
Stream wireless music directly to the iW1 via iTunes, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. AirPlay is a built-in feature in Apple devices that lets users stream audio wirelessly, wherever there is a Wi-Fi network.
Note: For AirPlay, the iW1 must be connected to Wi-Fi with networked access to a Mac or PC running iTunes 10.1 or later; or an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or later.
Device in the other room? No problem, the iW1 supports play/pause, next track, previous track, and volume control of iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and iTunes music playback from the speaker control panels, as well as the included IR remote.
The iW1 is a breeze to get working, with a simple network setup and custom device naming. Just grab iHome Connect, a free app available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Launch the app, connect via USB, and follow simple on-screen menus to configure Wi-Fi. You'll be enjoying AirPlay a few minutes after un-boxing.
The iW1 is certified for 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi Technologies. The "Wi-Fi CERTIFIED" logo assures the Wi-Fi Alliance has tested a product in numerous configurations and with a diverse sampling of other devices, to ensure compatibility with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED equipment that operates in the same frequency band.
For iPods that aren't Wi-Fi enabled, or when you want to keep a full charge while enjoying your music, a USB port is provided. Connect your iPod/iPhone using the included USB sync cable (or any iPod USB sync cable) for charging and audio playback. The USB connection also enables music playback from iPad.
You can also connect almost any music device using the analog 3.5mm stereo auxiliary input: CD players, MP3 players, etc.
Real-time digital signal processing extends the iW1's audio bandwidth, adding missing harmonics without adding peak output to the signal. It effectively improves brightness, clarity, and presence, delivering deep, resonant bass and crystal-clear highs.
You can dial in the EQ a little further with basic Bass and Treble controls.
A rechargeable battery with charging base and carrying handle makes the iW1 ideal for use anywhere at home, indoors and out.
The switching power supply works just about anywhere in the world to power your unit.
Pair the iW1 with iHome's iOS apps (available from the iTunes App Store) for an even more versatile experience:
iW1 Speaker, Charging Base, Power Adaptor, USB Sync Cable, Remote Control, Documentation
Most of times I am able to have iW1 connected to the network correctly and my Iphone 4 recognizes it as a Airplay Device.
That has not been my experience with other products, but perhaps that is why Bose designed their wireless speaker around Bluetooth instead of AirPlay.
Even if they had the firmware problems figured out, I wouldn't buy it again just because customer support was so unprofessional and ineffective.
good sound quality. it does not maintain a solid wifi connection even where the signal is very very strong. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Edye McCaffrey
Just say no...
I purchased this from Best Buy for $49, and frankly it's not worth the time I spent wrapping it. Read more
Sadly, this is a piece of garbage. You have to broadcast your network name (SSID) in order for the iW1 to connect. Then, once it's connected, the connection is not stable. Read morePublished 1 month ago by D. Cheatham
This product is even worse than I imagined after reading the reviews. It was on sale for $49.99, so I took a chance despite the poor ratings. The setup is ridiculous. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jason Donovan

Speaker works great 90% of the time. Cuts out on occasion. Seems to be the issue with even more expensive (Bose) AirPlay speakers. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Michael
Very sad about this purchase. Ihome support was responsive but quickly became apparent that unit was garbage, unstable and unusable. The 49. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
