Bluetooth Technology: The iHome iBN27 supports Bluetooth
audio streaming (A2DP) with simple Bluetooth
pairing, including NFC. 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 iBN27 (compatible with Android 4.0+ devices).
Once paired, the iBN27 will automatically re-connect with your device when
in wireless range (up to 33').
- Wireless Audio Streaming: The iBN27 streams stored
music and music apps wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone,
tablet, laptop, or computer. Use the controls on your device to play or
pause audio, navigate tracks, and control volume from your Bluetooth device.
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 iBN27.
microUSB Port: The iBN27's microUSB (type-B) port and the included
microUSB-to-USB cable lets you play audio from a USB (type-A) port on your
Windows PC or Mac computer, while charging the iBN27's built-in battery. The
iBN27 will automatically load required audio drivers onto your computer when
connected via USB. Use the audio controls on your computer to play or pause
audio, navigate tracks, and control volume.
Note: The microUSB port is not compatible with USB mass storage class
devices, Android smartphone/tablets, or Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad.
Stereo Speakers: Two specially designed full-range drivers and two
rear-firing ports deliver clarity, depth, and detailed sound.
Portable Design: The iHome iBN27 features a durable rubberized cabinet
and a built-in rechargeable battery for a true portable design.
Aux Input: The iBN27 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.
Aux Output: You can connect the unit to an external speaker via the
3.5mm Aux output jack located on the back of the unit to expand the audio
playing in Bluetooth or Aux-In modes.
Rechargeable Battery: The iHome iBN27 Bluetooth speaker has
a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides hours of playback
time. You can easily recharge the battery using the included USB cable and a
free USB port on your computer or a 3rd party AC/USB adapter (sold separately).
Charging time is approximately 3 hours.
