Sweet Little Bluetooth Speaker -- Great for a Backback or the Road,
This review is from: iHome iDM12BX Bluetooth Wireless Speaker (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was excited to get my iHome iDM12BC Bluetooth Speaker System -- and I wasn't disappointed. I've never had a portable speaker for my iPod or iPad before. Sometimes, Bluetooth devices can be tricky. Well, the iDM12BC is easy to charge, easy to pair and easy to use; and it fits in my fanny pack for a picnic or road trip. Bliss.
I've listened to the speaker system with Reggae, Pop, Rock, Country, Classical, New Age, Ragtime, and Rap music. I played around with my equalizer settings, too. I watched -- and listened -- to an episode of Law & Order: SVU. The iDM12BC's tone is solid and there's no "hiss" or "popping" that one got with older systems designed for computer use. This speaker is clear, even and unobtrusive. Note: it isn't made to be LOUD, although it quite easily filled my loft with music. The sound adapted to my equalizer settings with ease -- but it didn't upset the neighbors. If you're used to teeth-shaking bass, this speaker system isn't for you. BUT, if you're like I am, and want to be able to listen to awesome Ian Hunter tunes whilst putting together vegan cuisine in the kitchen or sing along with Harry Nilsson with friends from your Spent Youth; or you want to watch an episode of Bones all toasty happy in bed, the iDM12BC is an excellent speaker. It's *intimate.* I'm Disabled; and there are times when I can't tolerate loud sound. (It makes my bones ache.) I turned my iDM12BC on and was soothed by Jean Michael Jarre's "Oxygene." It was amazing to be able to listen to music without ear buds without pounding physical pain.
If you're one of those folks who enjoys music on a hike with few friends, the iHome iDM12BC is a good choice: It's not *too* loud and it's exactly right for the soundtrack of the world and the mountains and the beach. I took it my speaker with me into the forest for a picnic with my Service Dog; and nobody complained. In fact, a nice hiker dude asked where he could get one and the music playing on it (Jarre, again.)
I replied. "amazon.com."

Backpack! I'm a goofball for writing my review on my iPad. Grin.

Appreciate the review, true, but had to *say* hi to an Ian Hunter fan :)

Howdy, fellow Ian Hunter Fan! BTW, I was thinking of his haunting version of "All of the Good Ones Are Taken" from Strings Attached, when I wrote this. :-)
