This stylish travel iPod alarm clock is great for home or on the go. Wake and Sleep to your favorite music while charging your iPod. Waking up to your favorite music is a great way to start the day. The iHM16 lets you wake to your iPod, gradually increasing the volume so as not to jar you out of sleep too forcefully. If there is no iPod present or there is no music detected on the iPod at alarm time, the iH16 will automatically switch to buzzer alarm, to make sure you get there on time. The requisite nine-minute snooze is also included, since it takes some of us a little longer to get out of bed.

Wake or Sleep to iPod
Waking up to your favorite music is a great way to start the day. The iHM16 lets you wake to your iPod, gradually increasing the volume so as not to jar you out of sleep too forcefully. If there is no iPod present or there is no music detected on the iPod at alarm time, the iH16 will automatically switch to buzzer alarm, to make sure you get there on time. The requisite nine-minute snooze is also included, since it takes some of us a little longer to get out of bed.
You can adjust the sleep timer from 90, 60, 30 or 15 minutes, and the sleep features a volume setting independent from the alarm volume.
Charge Your iPod
While you're recharging in your sleep, your iPod's filling up on electricity, so when you hit the pavement your iPod will be ready to go.
The snooze button also changes the dimmer, so you can adjust the display to your desired brightness. Choose from three settings.
Provided you have installed four "AA" batteries, you'll still make it to work in the event of a power outage, thanks to iHome's "Sure Alarm" backup feature.
The iHM16 delivers great sound thanks to iHome's specially designed Reson8 speaker chambers. Reson8 is iHome's through-body ported speaker chamber technology. Porting speakers gives better bass response characteristics, and helps the iiHM16 deliver sound beyond its size.
The iHM16 features a standard 3.5mm "mini" jack, so you can connect MP3 players, CD players, or most any other audio device.

When using the alarm you can set only 1 time, I which you could set 2. When the set time arives it starts playing music, thats fine. However if you turn it off right after it starts about 30 seconds later a buzzer will start to go off. Also if you use the ipods built in alarm it seems to make a strange sound as if its shorting out, and the ipod set alarm wont play through the speakers since the speakers turn off after a small amount of time.
Summary: To me if the iPod is plugged the speakers should automaticly be on and every sound the ipod makes should play through them. The play button should be seperate from turning the speakers on.
Otherwise, you really get what you see; alarm clock/iPod player/charger. The speakers are rather cheesy and don't project very well. I knew I wasn't buying a home entertainment system, but I suppose I expected a little more than what it gives. My last docking station was also a radio (yes, some people still listen to the radio), but this speaker dock is not. I've also found that my music sometimes skips while playing through this system, although the songs that have begun skipping don't do it with any other system (previous docking station, headphones, or car).
I don't recommend this product.
Unfortunately, I was misled a bit on this product. It saw all the stars, read the reviews, but when I got this thing, unboxed and turned it on, it immediately struck me as a device not worth $40, much less its list price of $50. The main reasons for my complaint are the position and size of the speakers as well as the dock design. This device is listed as "iHome iH16 Portable Speaker System for iPod" whereas my impression of it now is "iHome iH16 Simple Alarm Clock for iPod."
If you're looking for a simple, relatively inexpensive alarm clock that allows you to plug your iPod into it, this is a good buy. However, if you're looking for a quality portable audio system for your iPod, you will be disappointed. This is a simple 2 speakers facing out on the side of the device. This makes true sound quality hard to attain because no matter where you are in relation to this thing, you will not have direct stereo sound because it's impossible for both speakers to be facing you at the same time. This was a big disappointment for me.
The dock also has room for improvement. When I pulled the iH16 out of it's package, I read the instructions and tried to put the dock together for an iPod Nano. You have to hook 2 pieces of plastic into the back of the dock to support the Nano, the second being a bit small and flimsy. Although I got the Nano docked, the support was lousy and left me wondering if I even did it right. When I had my Nano 3G plugged in, it was extremely uncomfortable to use the click wheel as the bottom of the wheel was almost flush against the surface of the dock. I overcame this by simply using a 3.5mm AUX cable, but then I lost the charging function.
However, on the plus side of things, it's a nice looking device that does what it says and does it good and with simplicity. The clock and alarm are extremely easy to set, it does have an AUX cable input, it does charge the iPod, and it does play music. The sound quality for the size and position of the speakers IS actually good. I won't be returning this, but I've definitely learned a valuable lesson from it.
I want to finish by saying that I am a guy who usually gets the best or close to it in audio. I don't ALWAYS get the most expensive stuff, but when it comes to my music, I usually go all-out. Music is very important to me and I have the ears of an audiophile. If you're simply looking for a little portable device to play your tunes or, as aforementioned, an alarm clock that supports the iPod, this product is fine for you. But if you're looking for a little more on the audio side of things, seek elsewhere. And even then, $40 still seems a bit steep for this.
