Our take on the iHome iHM89

by Ralph Graves
iHome

The iHome iHM89 portable speakers might be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but the sound they can put out is anything but small. Each speaker is designed to deliver the fullest sound possible.

Open up to set up

Magnetic bases hold the two speakers together for travel. Gently pull them apart to set up. 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 smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other portable with a headphone minijack.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Ralph Graves Staff Writer - Creative,

Impressive portable sound

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 9/24/2013 4:58:00 PM

What I want from a set of portable speakers are two things: compactness and simplicity. Actually make that three things: I also want good sound. The iHM89's deliver on all counts.

The speakers are pretty compact, each one taking up about the space of a teacup (without the handle). All the necessary cords are bundled into a single unit, so nothing gets lost. One of the mini-USB connectors also has the USB charging cable integrated into it. The other has the stereo mini-jack connected integrated into it.

That integrated cable makes the speakers easy to set up. Just plug the cables into the back of the speakers, and the minijack into a portable device (or computer). I had the system up and running within two minutes.

I was especially impressed with the sound. Running through our test tracks in the Labs, I heard bass with real presence, with nicely-articulated highs and clear mid-tones. Positioned properly, the iHM89s can create a spacious soundstage, at least for near-field listening. As I said: the iHM89's have everything I'm looking for in travel speakers.
