Our take on the iHome iDM15SC

by Ralph Graves
iHome

A simple system with some amazing options

Ever try to set up portable speakers on the fly for your smartphone, portable player, or tablet? Between unraveling tangled wires and finding something to prop your player up against, it can be a real inconvenience. Not so with the iHome iDM15SC portable speakers.

iHome iDM15SC speakers

First, they're wireless. If your player has Bluetooth, then you've got sound. Second, the speakers' sturdy travel case doubles as a stand for your device. Just open it up and place your player in the groove. Now you're ready to groove with your friends.

Bluetooth wireless technology for music and talk

iHome iDM15SC

The system's built-in Bluetooth connects easily to compatible devices. And it features Bluetooth A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) which lets you stream high-quality audio wirelessly from your linked device. Enjoy great sound — whether it's music from your PDA, a soundtrack to a video playing on your tablet, sound effects from the game you're playing on your handheld console, or an Internet music app playing on your smartphone.

And the iDM15SC can be used as a speakerphone system with your iPhone or other Bluetooth-enabled phones. When a call comes in, just press the talk button on top of the right speaker to converse hands-free. iHome's echo cancellation technology keeps your calls sounding clear and clean.


Portable convenience

iHome iDM15SC

The iDM15SC is a study in simplicity. The provided 2-in-1 cable features a USB plug for recharging, and a stereo minijack plug to connect to a headphone jack. You can continue to enjoy your music while the speakers recharge, either wirelessly or through the cable connection.

The sturdy case holds both speakers plus the provided cables. Open the case and lay it flat. A groove in the top holds your player, while the back of the case folds around to provide additional support. The case will easily hold not just a smartphone in place, but a tablet or iPad® as well.

Great little product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The iHome is at the lower end of the price spectrum which had me concerned about its quality, however, I've owned it for almost a month and am still VERY EXCITED to have a bluetooth speaker system in the kitchen. I like listening to music or watching videos while I cook and I bought this unit to solve two problems: 1) The speakers in my netbook are too weak to effectively watch Netflix while I cook. 2) My Droid, which is playing Pandora, is occasionally in the way while I'm cooking and I'm concerned about it falling over or getting food on it.

So I bought the iHome so I had good sound while watching Netflix and the speakers could be out of the way while I cook or while I entertain guests. Bluetooth speakers are cool because the smart phone then becomes more of a remote control than the entertainment center.

I've just now had to charge them for the first time, so I'm impressed with the battery life. The aux (1/8" jack) hook up allows you to connect any device, like my netbook (pretty cool) We even move them about the house and take outside so we can get good sound anywhere we are.
Pros:
Long lasting battery and can put the speakers anywhere. Large stand is not needed so you can just put it in a cupboard. Great range. Good quality sound and a convenient size.
Cons:
Occasionally, the blue tooth connection doesn't automatically sync up and I have to manually sync. All bluetooth speakers are a bit more expensive than I would normally pay, but I bought this one with a gift card from a family member.
