Our take on the iHome iBT4

by Ralph Graves
iHome

Need a simple, go-anywhere boombox to use with your smartphone or tablet? The iHome iBT4 makes a great choice — and its modernist retro styling makes a bold fashion statement, too. Its big mono sound won't get swallowed up in the great outdoors.

iHome iBT24

Entertainment options

Stream wirelessly to the iBT4 from your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-compatible device. Or go old-school and use the iBT4's FM radio to tune in some tunes, or the big game. There's an auxiliary input so you can enjoy other portable devices through the iBT4.

And if you want bigger sound, use the system's line-out jack to connect to another speaker. Daisy-chain two or more iBT4 speakers together to really kick out the jams.

Ready to go

The iBT4 features a built-in rechargeable battery for portable operation. The system's rugged case is rubberized for outdoor use, with a sturdy pivoting handle.

Features

Bluetooth Portable Speaker: The iHome iBT4 is a self-powered, Bluetooth portable speaker that is ideal for your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop, and other devices.

  • Wireless Audio Streaming: The iHome iBT4 portable speaker streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your Apple iOS device, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, computer/PC, or other devices. The iBT4 provides basic playback controls, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device for advance music navigation and to view song/artist information.
  • Pairing: This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single press of a button. Once paired, the iHome iBT4 will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
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 iBT4.

Reson8 Speaker Chamber with SRS TruBass Circuitry: A specially designed sealed speaker enclosure combined with SRS TruBass circuitry delivers clear highs and deep lows from a compact speaker.

Durable Rubberized Cabinet: The iHome iBT4 features a rubberized finished cabinet for added durability. Even though this speaker has a rubberized finish, it is not weather resistant or water proof.

FM Radio: The iHome iBT4 features a built-in FM tuner with a telescoping antenna. You can choose between US and European tuning.

Aux Input: A 3.5mm auxiliary input lets you connect almost any portable audio device that is fitted with a headphone output  jack.

Line Output: A 3.5mm line output lets you daisy-chain multiple iBT4s for bigger sound.

Built-in Rechargeable Battery: The iHome iBT4 Bluetooth speaker operates on an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery or the included AC power adapter. The rechargeable battery provides up to 7 hours of music playback. The battery is easily recharged by the included AC power adapter. It can take up to 6 hours to fully charge the battery.

not the best product

Written By Cliffpa, Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday, July 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Connects to Bluetooth easily, but not much volume. I told the guy on the telephone i wanted a device for outside on the patio, but i didn't want to spend more than $75. He told me he had a great unit for around that price. I bought it. I can see why they don't sell this anymore, it is not that good.
Pros:
connect to bluetooth easily.
Cons:
volume is not loud enough. Runs out of power in one dinner outside.
