iHome iW1 Speaker Dock Review

 

Imagine every feature you could ever want from an iPod dock. Go on, make a list. Ours includes AirPlay, solid sound quality, an iPod charging dock, and a reasonable price tag. This is good news for the iW1, which includes all these features and a...

Big sound. Rechargeable battery. Works with AirPlay. Can charge your iPhone

Touch capacitive plastic top is a smudge factory. USB input doesn’t charge iPads. Bass is a bit flat

The iW1 is a good mid-priced AirPlay option. The remote, app, and rechargeable battery make it ultra-convenient to use in a wide variety of situations—and it’s got great sound to boot.

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,...

Ties you to iTunes; AirPlay inferior to Sonos network; lacks hard-wired Ethernet

iHome iW1 AirPlay speaker

 

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 guy dubbed iW1. We've seen a steady trickle of AirPlay devices announced in the time since, but the iW1's been one...

Clean looks, but packed with features ; Bongiovi DPS enhances audio ; Rechargeable battery makes it semi-portable

Computer setup had us gritting our teeth ; Scattered control layout ; AirPlay is occasionally buggy

iHome's Airplay-enabled iW1 packs a balanced blend of features and sound quality -- just don't expect a totally seamless experience.

iHome iW1 AirPlay review

 

The iHome iW1 AirPlay is a wireless audio system for use with iPad, iPhone or iPod that looks, but doesn't sound, great.

The iHome iW1 AirPlay is a trade-off. If you value transportability, and you're OK giving up the audio quality of the better-sounding AirPlay systems out there, the iW1 is unique in being the first battery-powered AirPlay system on the market. However,...

iHome iW1

 

First announced in January 2011, iHome's iW1 was one of the first ‘budget' AirPlay compatible stereos on the market.

Best looking unit in this test; convenient docking station allows for easy portability

Confusing controls; confusing setup; no Wi-Fi direct

Sound quality from the iW1 was better than average. Bass and treble response were both good – and easily as good as the Sonos S3, which is about the same size.
