Top Customer Reviews
The reason for the 1 star review is that I've now owned 2 sets of these speakers, and they're both broken. Both times, after a few weeks of use, I turned them off (via the power switch on the right speaker) and they wouldn't turn back on again. When I turned the speakers off every time prior to that, there was a loud pop. Apparently iHome couldn't be bothered to add in a circuit that would keep the electronics from getting fried when you turn the speakers off. This is some terrible engineering.
Please don't make my mistake and assume that you might not get a bad pair of speakers. You'll just be throwing money away when these nice speakers die on you.
Yet, both the Dock Socket (male-connector) and the plastic insert (incl. in the package) fit & are compatible for the NEW iPod Touch (64GB) 4th Generation newest model. (Not specified in Tech. Detail)
I bought this IHome IH70 to take with me on trips, not to replace my computer Yamaha Sound System.
I am a music fanatic playing everything from Pop, Country, Jazz, Classics, Buddha to Folklore. So I was
very concerned how this IH70 would stack up to my criteria. It didn't meet my highs and lows I wanted, but to be honest it's the best sounding small speaker system, portable enough, I have purchased so far, especially when considering the price. It has great natural average tones and doesn't sound tiny as some others. I wouldn't recommend it as a PC sound system replacement, unless it had an option to purchase a Woofers to bring out the bass. Maybe iHome will make Woofer Box someday.
If price is a concern and your budget minded then this IH70 won't disappoint you.
The Con: The iPod Doc Connector comes with 4 little small inserts to fit various sizes of iPods. The manual requests that you remove the skin from your iPod. That would be a real pain to do each time one wants to use the IH70. So I tried it with the insert. The insert doesn't allow the iPod to lower itself far enough, so it won't play with the insert. After removing the insert the iPod sits properly and plays with the skin intact.
With the insert removed, I inspecting the seating. The pod has no wiggle room left to right and appears to sit solid front to back, so I can't find a reason why you can't leave the silicon skin on, unless your cover is extra thick. And also the reason I deducted a star.
In final, telling by the weight of each speaker, their not cheaply made speakers. A Great Value if you need to play music at low volume, and don't want to wake your neighbors. You can't beat the price for the quality, an exceptional value. And comes with a Remote control, with 19 buttons to do whatever you wish.
