    Comments about iHome Black Portable Multimedia Speakers:

    I need white noise when I travel and usually have to hunt down a fan. By downloading the sleep nite app and using these speakers, I can have the sound of a fan anytime I want. They're also great for listening to Pandora radio in the morning when I'm getting ready....Improved the sound quality immensely!

        Comments about iHome Black Portable Multimedia Speakers:

        We needed to replace the speakers we had travelled with for years after they died a year ago.

        After some online comparison shopping, we went with:
        iHome Black Portable Multimedia Speakers - iHM79BC Speaker System.
        These seemed to have all the important attributes we sought: moderate price, compact size for transport, great sound, ease of connectivity and use.

        We figured these were a good place to start for the price, and once we got them and hooked them up for a trial run at home - WOW. We were very impressed with the sound; pure, clear, honest sound and not too heavy on the bass (my Bose docking system could use improvement on that).

        We have toted them along on two vacations and just love them -- Easy to travel with because they're small (actually smaller than a soda can when collapsed and resting base to base), and lovely to listen to! They charge through a laptop and have a long battery life for use with ipod, iphone, etc. Overall, these speakers are fabulous gadget. The only added feature I'd like is a volume control on the speakers. Our dead set had that and it was very convenient.

              Comments about iHome White Portable Multimedia Speakers:

              The sound from these little speakers is impressive (so realistic, they freaked out my dog). And they're compact & fit together cleverly. BUT the way they connect w/ 3 wires is a major bummer. The wires tangle easily, in spite of the poorly designed clip that ostensibly should prevent tangling. The wires ruined the speakers for me. This is a great buy for someone who doesn't intend to travel frequently w/ these speakers.
