iHome iW1 Wireless Speaker Review

 

iHome manufactures dozens of Apple-oriented audio devices, ranging from headphones to speaker docks. The AirPlay-capable iW1 wireless speaker is by far the company's most advanced product, but its $300 price tag pits it against some tough competition,...

iHome iW1 AirPlay wireless audio system review

 

/Believe it or not, it was way back at CES that we first caught an in-person glimpse of iHome's flagship AirPlay-enabled audio system -- a
