Bed Shaker with Integrated Speaker

Because the sound of a typical alarm can often be unpleasant or ineffective, the Vibe Plus offers a wide variety of different alarms so you can start your day off right. It features a speaker-shaker that can be placed beside you in bed or underneath your pillow as you sleep. The shaker's fully integrated speaker plays the music of your iPhone/iPod or alarm sounds. And to make sure that you don't oversleep, the speaker-shaker provides an adjustable volume switch that allows the user to select either a low, medium, or high intensity. On the rear side of the Vibe Plus, there is also a convenient adjustable switch where the speaker output can be varied from either the main unit speaker, the main unit speaker and the speaker-shaker, or the speaker-shaker itself. Thus, finding the perfect balance of being shaken and stirred is so easy.

The shaker can also be used as a nighttime speaker to lull you to sleep with the music of your iPod, iPhone, or the built-in FM radio.

Plays and Charges Your iPhone or iPod

Featuring a universal dock for your iPhone or iPod, the Vibe Plus not only plays your device--it charges it as well. Now you can stay powered-up, even while you're listening.

iLuv iMM178
Powerful Speakers Deliver Deep, Clear Sound

With advanced jAura acoustic speaker technology, the Vibe Plus delivers robust, deep bass sound with clear, crisp treble notes. And with a treble and bass control right at your fingertips, your iPhone or iPod playlist never sounded so good.

iLuv iMM178
Customizable Alarm Clock with Time Sync

The convenient programmable Vibe Plus lets you select specific days of the week for activation: every day, weekdays, or just weekends. Using the onboard controls, you can select your wake mode, choosing from either your device’s iTunes library or the built-in FM radio. The Vibe Plus also offers seven unique alarm sounds that include a buzzer, rooster, train horn, xylophone, telephone ring, horse race (Reveille), or a cuckoo clock.

In addition, the clock automatically synchronizes with the time on your iPhone or iPod. And for sleepers who are sensitive to light, the digital display comes equipped with a 10-step dimmer control.

Compatible with Most iPhones and iPods

The Dual Alarm Clock is compatible with most iPhones and iPods available today, including the iPhone 4 (on both AT&T and Verizon networks), iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone, iPod touch (1G, 2G), iPod nano (1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G), iPod classic, iPod with video, fourth-generation iPod, and iPod mini.

Unless someone can tell me what I am doing wrong this will go back and I'll never buy a product from iLuv again.

Although my dog is a great alarm clock, this clock wakes me up when I set it to wake me up.

This is the first time that I have ever written a review for a product. I was hesitant on buying it the first time because there were no reviews. Even after owning it for only one day I felt compelled to write a review as I see it is getting only a two star review and it deserves so much better.
I first saw the Iluv Imm178 in a magazine advertisement and thought it sounded wonderful. My husband has to get out of bed at 3:45 for work in the morning. To avoid waking our children up he has always used his alarm on his phone and put it on vibrate. He then clenches his phone all night long and wakes often to ensure he is still holding it. Obviously, he doesn't get a lot of sleep because of this. So, when I saw the bed shaker I thought it would be wonderful (if it worked) so I got this product although I was hesitant because of the lack of reviews. I did look at the older model and considered it but when I looked at the negatives in the review, it looked like the company fixed all of the complaints and I definitely believe they have.
Well, it came in yesterday and although it has only been a day I am so pleased. Now, if you are expecting a Bose sound system, you aren't going to find it. Don't get me wrong, the sound it great, but let's have practical expectations for a $100 alarm clock. The sound surprisingly can fill a room and the bass and treble are adjustable to what your music preference is. We were very pleased with the sound.
The entire unit is easy to use. I had no problems setting the alarms and all the bells and whistles. It really does have quite a few wonderful features. You can even set the snooze to different time increments. It can return 5,7,9, or 15 minutes later. Finally the bed shaker, the reason why I bought it.

Product is great and I've enjoyed the purchase. Sound is pretty good and alarms are awesome and loud enough to even wake the dead. LOL. My only complaint is that the brightness level/snooze button are the same. I keep changing the brightness by mistake all the time when I hit snooze more than once (and you know it ought to happen when you really want the extra 5 mins). I would have given it a 4 stars but the product is not future proof despite only 3 months on the market. Since I've got iPhone 4 I noticed that time sync does not work and that phone shows message that product is neither optimized or designed for iPhone 4 interchangeably. Quite annoying.

My wife routinely gets up before me. She used to have an annoying little clock that "blarp blarp blarp" every morning and it drove me nuts, so I bought her this.

It works fine with the iPhone 3G. Charges the phone and allows you to use the phone while it is plugged into the unit. Music is a decent enough quality to enjoy in the bedroom - I would not buy this mainly to listen to music in a very large room though.

The bed shaker works great. It wakes her up early. Sometime I feel it but I fall back asleep immediately - definitely not as intrusive as a radio or blarp. The unit has a second alarm that I use to get up - I have it set to use the speaker on the main unit (though I could use the shaker as well if I wanted).

One feature I really like is the ability to dim the display. It can be quite bright on the highest level, but through 10 levels you can get it down to just a hint of light. And even on the lowest level you can see the time in daylight from across the room.

Overall, a great alarm clock. I am impressed with the design and how well it is thought out.

First of all, I don't know why a fellow reviewer complained about the incompatibility with the iPhone 4 because it is obviously made for the iPhone 3G/3GS.

But besides that, I own an iPhone 3GS and have been having a blast with this dock clock. Being a college student who loves music and could use an alarm clock, charger, and radio all in one, this product achieves it all. I use it every day to easily change alarm times as I go, or keep them constant throughout the week, and can change the way it alarms [radio, radio+shaker, iPod, iPod+shaker, buzzer, or buzzer+shaker]. It really utilizes variety so you don't have to listen to the same, old buzzer over and over again.

As said in the description, you can set up two alarms -each with the option to set it to alarm only on the weekends, only on the weekdays, or on both. You can easily disable/enable either alarm (that's already set) with the convenient push of a button, and without losing the settings of the alarm(s). Additionally, you can adjust snooze time lengths, which is also great.

Now coming to the sound quality, I may not be an avid sound enthusiast, but the sound is pretty amazing. My music is wonderfully clear and whole, fills up the room, and the bass is just phenomenal for what I paid for. Teamed up with the new OS4, my expediently changeable playlist allows me to enjoy any songs, any number of songs when I wake up or go to sleep. All of the music apps or any other app with sound work perfectly with the speakers as well. Quality all the same with the radio -feels live every time.

The dock also leaves sufficient space to accommodate a phone with a case (though, I've only tried with my semi-slim-fitting case; a case such as an Otterbox MAY possibly fit -but don't count on me, lol).
