I've tested the alarms, which work as they should. While the unit itself has the 2 alarms similar to the older version of this (iP9), the app, which is free to download through the app store, can have many more alarms. The features I really enjoy on the app are being able to choose "bedtime" music, and choose specific songs to play to fall asleep to or wake up to, and you can even set the volume on your individual alarms. The app also has things like the weather displayed on the alarm screen, which is always nice to know when you wake up. What I also really enjoy about this when compared to the regular iPhone alarm is being able to set the time for the snooze. The unit comes with the docks to support multiple devices, but I like that I can also plug my iPhone in without there being a dock since I have a pretty thick case on my iPhone. Another great feature is that by the press of a button on the device, you can sync the time on the clock to match your iPhone time. The one con I have found in the few hours I've had this is that the time does not remain synced, but is not off by more than a minute (this is stated in the user manual as well).
Overall, the fact that I can set the alarms and more from an app makes this alarm clock definitely worth it. The sound quality is also really great and doubles well as speakers in the bedroom.
The app is called iHome+Sleep (FREE), and there is also another one that you can use to wake up to internet radio stations (iHome+Radio) which costs $2.99, although I haven't tried that one out yet.
I've had this for a few months. I'm not as impressed with the App as I was at the beginning. I've found bugs in it and it's failed me a few times (luckily I was never late). The alarms on the unit itself work very well. Maybe I just haven't figured it out perfectly, but the app alarms haven't really worked smoothly for me. Regarding other things...I love the nap feature that is both on the app and the unit. Also to note, the alarm DOES go off when the phone is on silent.
I reduced the stars I gave it from 5 to 4 because of the app, but I still recommend this iHome, especially since the former version that has fewer features is more expensive now as it's being phased out.
1.) It is very small and fairly light.
2.) The system has a form of an operating system, that can be updated through your ipod or iphone.
3.) There are adapters so your generation or type of ipod/iphone will fit nicely.
4.) You can set 2 alarms, with advanced settings such as:
- the time
- choose weekends/weekdays for it to go off
- alternating buzzer or a choice of a digital am/fm radio station
- can set a volume for the radio alarm
5.) Day Light Saving setting
6.) there is an mp3/auxiliary jack on the back
7.) great sound quality for the price!
8.) Equalizer that changes:
- Turn off/on 3D sound
- 3D sounds fills the room
- gives the music for depth and quality
9.) easy to set up
10.) Digital clock and radio
11.) Change the brightness for the LED screen
The sounds is great for what you are paying for. The speakers can be heard from my room on the third floor in the kitchen on the first. The iHome has the great 3D sound setting and Reson-8 speaker chambers with a bass export on the back. Therefore, the speakers music fills the room and the bass has some punch. I have hooked up mine to my dual subwoofer, so the sound is phenomenal. I have actually replaced my old sound system for the iHome and my woofer! Though, these are small speakers, so don't expect to get too much bass with these. They are perfect for alarm clocks, but if you want to use it as a speaker system, use a subwoofer and attach it to the iHome via the 3.5mm aux jack on the back. A problem is that the treble can be a bit "tinny" for a few songs, but only on 3/300 songs on my mp3 player does that happen.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for one of the best alarm clocks on the market (especially for the money)! If you would like to use it as a speaker system, i would recommend adding a subwoofer, since the small size of the speakers tend to indicate less bass. This is probably one of the best products (that have to do with music) I have ever purchased.
After reading a bunch of reviews and comparing prices and all sorts of other research, I settled on this clock radio.
So far I am incredibly satisfied.
The sound is great. This thing gets LOUD and sounds pretty good for a clock radio. I'd gladly use this at parties or other events for indoor music playing at my house. The only thing that could be better is bass, but for a clock radio, it's great.
The remote makes sense and works well.
The buttons on top are placed logically and work well.
The display is a little bright, but what would you expect with a blue/white LED?
The dock plays sound from other apps. (So far Spotify and Netflix)
The radio reception is great out of the box. Didn't even attach the antenna.
Even more important:
This dock works flawlessly with my iPhone4s WITH my Otterbox Commuter series case on it! I was very happy about that.
Also, the "app-enhanced" part is awesome. This gives you the option of setting way more alarms and lets you choose specific songs from your library. It also allows you to set specific snooze times for each alarm, which is something I never knew I needed but now I love it. It even lets you choose specific volume for different alarms.
As I said before, I've only had it for a day, but everything does exactly what it is supposed to and I am even more satisfied than I expected.
