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

 

It's a shame the portable and Apple AirPlay-equipped iHome iW1 speaker distorts at high volumes, but it's not necessarily a deal-breaker if you don't listen to music with deep bass.

Portable. Strong overall audio performance. Integrates Apple’s AirPlay wireless streaming. Also comes with cable for iPhone/iPad/iPod charging and direct playback. Capacitive touch volume controls allow for quick volume changes.

Distorts at high volumes on deep bass. Slighlty overpriced. Battery charging dock is awkwardly designed.

iHome iW1 AirPlay wireless audio system review

 

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

 

iHome's iW1 AirPlay wireless audio system looks sharper than it sounds, but despite a few design oddities and audio quality that's disappointing given the system's price, the iW1 may deserve your consideration.

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.
