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.

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.

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.

I bought this for my adult son for a December birthday gift. He sleeps through EVERYTHING! No alarm ever works to wake him up, so he has to sleep with his Iphone on his chest to wake up to the alarm. His "fail-safe" plan is to have someone call him or come in a make sure he's awake on time.

I offered to get him a clock radio at one time and he said not to bother because the alarm wouldn't work for him. That's why the bed shaker feature caught my attention. The reviews from other people convinced me that it was worth a try. I figured, if nothing else, he would have a nice bedside clock that he could play music and recharge his Iphone.

When it arrived, it apparently took a little figuring out how to set it up because there wasn't an instruction book included, but as he was plugging in the phone, and trying to figure out how to set the time, it suddenly automatically set itself to the phone's time! He and his brother were super impressed.

He loves the bed shaker. He said that it's more "violent" than he expected, but it works! He wakes up to it! What he really likes about the bed shaker though, is that it also has a speaker in it, so he can hear the music as he falls asleep at night, and also when his alarm goes off in the morning.

We'll have to see how durable it is - it's only been about a month, but so far, he seems to be very happy with it and it sounds like it's working as described! At this point, I'm very pleased. Just wish it had included an instruction book, but maybe he can find that somewhere online. :D
