Overview

Our take on the iHome iBN27

The compact iHome iBN27 powered speaker makes a great on-the-go sound system.Place it just about anywhere, turn it on, and stream music wirelessly from your Bluetooth-compatible smartphone or tablet to start the party. The system's rugged case is rubberized, so it can handle a little moisture — be it a splash from a pool, snow spray, or even a spilled drink.

An auxiliary input lets you listen to other portable devices through the iBN27.

The iHome iBN27's rubberized finish lets you enjoy your tunes poolside.

Bluetooth with NFC

Stream wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or other portable device via Bluetooth. And the system features convenient NFC (Near Field Communication). Just touch an NFC-compatible portable device to the iBN27 for instant wireless pairing.

Audio output for bigger sound

And if you need more volume for a larger space, use the system's line-out jack to connect to another speaker. Daisy-chain two or more iBN27 speakers together to really amp up the party.

The USB charging port lets you easily recharge the speaker's built-in lithium-ion battery. Just use the included charging cable to connect to your computer or a USB power adapter to recharge.

does everything i need it to do.

Yes this speaker is loud, but the quality is horrible. Definitely not worth the money. I recommend the Shark Boom box. Better quality, better battery, louder and about the same price

Features

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.
