iHome Audio has been around since 2005 and has become the #1 brand in the iPod Electronics market! iHome now offers full lines of alarm clocks, clock radios, portable speakers, home audio systems, headphones, earbuds, charging stations, and computer accessories for iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The first thing I noticed was this incredible shape!!  It is truly like nothign I’ve seen before.  When you plug in your iPod or iPhone, you can actually change the orientation — horizontal or vertical.  That means you can use it to share your favorite tunes, but you could also change the view and watch videos, movies or anything else you’ve dowloaded onto your device.  iHome definitely gets into the minds of consumers and gives them things that they can really use!

  1. Connie Harget says

    I love the weather app on this, who doesnt always want to know the weather quickly?

  2. Spring Jones says

    I like that we can downlown custom alarms and wake up to whatever sound we want to!

  3. BethP says

    It’s hard to pick just one feature, but I’ll go with being able to dock my iPod and not need a separate clock on my nightstand.

  4. Kristin Lopez says

    My favorite feature is the landscape/portrait aspect. As well as the handy remote control!

  5. Laine says

    I love the gradual wakeup and gradual sleep feature on the iHome clock/radio. My sleepy college graduate will love it.

  6. Susan says

    My favorite feature, if I won, would be the price! My second favorite feature would be that it’s a huge upgrade to a modern platform compared to my old alarm clock, which is very old school! I’d like the remote, since I don’t wake up very easily and don’t feel like moving when that alarm first goes off!

  7. Diana G. says

    I love all the alarm features specially the weather alarm. I love the style compact and modern.

    My favorite feature is the alarm clock. This is a perfect graduation gift for my daughter who will NEED a very cool alarm clock to take to college with her!

    My favorite feature is that I can play my music and keep it charged at the same time! Its like unimaginable, my biggest problem is that I run out of battery 1/2 way through my house cleaning or my workout!

  11. Lisa Hiteshew says

    Fav feature is the custom alarm! I LOVE iHome products – they are made really well and look great too!
