Imagine holding a small capsule in your palm, then with a few deft hand motions, presto! It turns into a portable speaker system pumping out clear sound from your iPod®. That's the concept behind iHome's iHM79 portable speakers.
Open up to set up
The two speakers have magnetic bases to hold them together for travel. Gently pull them apart to set up. Give each speaker a twist to unlock and expand it. Then connect the combination USB cable/stereo minijack cable to your computer or portable device and you're ready for music.
Simple and fun
The speakers have built-in rechargeable batteries that you can charge through the USB port of any computer and you can listen to them while they're charging. Minijack audio connections make these speakers compatible with any portable device or computer that has a headphone minijack output. So go ahead and use the iHM79 to pump up the volume on your smart phone, handheld game console, PDA, MP3 player, even your old-school portable CD player.
From the review iHome iHM79 rechargeable portable speakers -- share the music
"The iHM79 is one of the best personal speaker systems I've used. It sounds great, it's compact enough to take anywhere I take my backpack (which is nearly everywhere), it's rechargeable and it works with anything that sends sound out of a headphone jack. ideal for both young and young-at-heart people who want to share exciting listening with others, or simply to give their earbuds a rest."
