Happy Parents

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these speakers in my parents living room. Close to each ones chair, but, there is a catch. At 73 they each want to control their volume independently. My mom is deaf so CC is on constantly, however she can hear and feel music, when it's close to her. My dad however is week in the hearing department but can make it out if the audio is close to him as well. I mounted these on speaker stands and are fed audio from the TV via a wireless transmitter powered via USB. (sold separately) Each speaker has the mated receiver. No Blutooth involved or pairing to worry about. The speakers can go very loud but the nice thing is the volume controls are right on top and easy to feel. No tech calls from my parents yet :)

Pros: Great location of volume controls. Volume is clear and loud.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptic at how good it would work being so small of a system and the usability of bluetooth. I got one for my mom and one for my girlfriend. My mom isn't much on technology other than owning a iphone, but she has this thing figured out.

It has room filling sound that is pretty high quality for how small it is.

Pros: Great sound quality for the size. Easy to use. Compact

Cons: Cost

Surprisingly big performance

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit gives unexpected clarity and high quality sound in a nice compact package at a good price. You even get bluetooth connectivity and a phone charger. Only remaining question is durability, time will tell.

Pros: Price, Sound quality, Size, Bluetooth, Phone charger

Product Research


Reson8 Speaker Technology: The iHome iBN26 Bluetooth speaker system employs two full-range drivers powered by a built-in 6W amplifier inside a specially designed sealed enclosure (Reson8) to deliver clear, stereo sound.

Built-in Bluetooth (w/ NFC): The iHome iBN26 supports Bluetooth audio streaming, Bluetooth hands-free communication, and simple Bluetooth pairing. It works with Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphones/tablets, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computers, and more.

  • Simple Pairing: This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single press of a button or via NFC (Near Field Communication). NFC lets you wirelessly pair with a compatible device by simply touching it to the iBN26 (compatible with Android 4.0+ devices). Once paired, the iBN26 will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
  • Wireless Audio Streaming: The iBN26 streams stored music and music apps wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. The unit provides Play/Pause control via its top-panel controls. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device for advanced music navigation and to view song/artist information.
  • Hands-Free Communication: The iHome iBN26 features a built-in microphone and a call/answer button so you can answer phone calls, talk on Skype, or use Facetime from the Bluetooth speaker system. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, dial a phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the iHome iBN26.

Aux Input: The iBN26 Bluetooth speaker system is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input to connect almost any portable audio player with a headphone jack output.

USB Charging (1A): The iHome iBN26 is fitted with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port for charging your smartphone or tablet device (using the charging cable that came with your smartphone/tablet device). This USB port does not support audio playback.

AC Power Adapter: The iHome iBN26 operates off of standard household current using the included AC power supply (Input: 100-240V~50-60Hz/0.5A; Output: 12V-1500mA)
