iHome iP1


We're amazed how many iPod speaker docks these days still won't playnicely with the iPhone--it's been two-and-a-half years, people! Whichis one of the reasons we're so excited about iHome's iP1. Besides beingiPhone-friendly, it also looks great, a...

Finally, an iPod speaker dock that doesn't look like something from Radio Shack circa 1987. Great sound. Component video outs

Not as loud as we might have liked. Temperamental remote

The iP1 offers big sound for a home office or other small space. The "Bon Jovi" button seriously rocks.

iHome iP1 Review


If the iHome brand seems familiar, it's probably because you've seen or heard their products at your favorite large-scale retailer. In 2005 iHome began making affordable clock radios for the iPod and since then has expanded their product line to...

Stylish, modern look ; Excellent build quality ; Component/composite video output

Very pronounced bass and treble ; Not easily portable ; No clock/alarm functions

IHome’s iP1 makes an impression with bold style and even bolder sound, but lacks the nuance and control expected from a high-end iPod dock.

iHome Audio iP1 Home Theater Review


Striking design ; Good voicing ; Enhancement sounds good with rock and pop music

Music is sometimes unnatural and harsh ; Consistent fuzzy sound below music

Visually striking iPod dock with digital enhancement helps some music but makes other tunes sound unnatural and harsh.

iHome iP1


Stellar design and outstanding sound quality set this iPod dock apart from the rest.

Striking design ; Elegant docking solution ; Excellent stereo separation

Heavy ; Component video output cables not included

iPod docks are nothing new, but iHome has set a new standard with the iP1. At ’99, this device will not fit in everyone's budget, but with its forward-thinking design and superb sound, this is the iPod dock to beat.

iHome iP1


Given the iHome iP1's high price ($299.99 direct), this iPod/iPhone dock had better sound magnificent and come with an excellent remote control. One out of two ain't bad: The remote features full iPod navigation. But iHome's promise that the push of a...

Sleek, unique design. Full iPod navigation on remote. Bass and treble controls. Component video out

Bongiovi DPS" is a silly gimmick. Bass distorts at high volumes

The iP1 is a solid-sounding iPod/iPhone dock, but at $300, we expect better performance at high volumes—and if you think the "Bongiovi DPS" effect sounds like a gimmick, it is.

Review: iHome Audio iP1 iPod speaker dock


The iP1 is visually striking, and its digital enhancement of compressed music is helpful with some genres. But there are other speaker docks that produce a more natural sound.

iHome says that the iP1 uses “a complex chip-based algorithm” developed by Bongiovi Acoustics to restore “harmonics, brightness, clarity and presence” while also boosting the bass. How well does the technology work? To my ears, it sometimes works a...

The style of the iP1 is a cool idea, but it probably could have been better. Because of the minimalistic design, some practical stuff like a case and/or a handle to assist with moving were not implemented. The sound is better than expected. It reaches...

Good quality sound, convenient to use with iPhone/iPod, better price than competitor's like Bose, Design is cool

Not really easy to carry or move, has a power 'brick' that is cumbersome and unnecessary, lacks a little in sound dynamics
