Great., but not long lasting
I loved these speakers while I had them, however they are not very reliable. I took very good care of them. I had one for 8 months, then they went bad. Luckily I had a warranty. Took them back a second time, had them for a couple months, same problem. The third one I got, didn't even work properly after opening them
It's a shame because I love the style and versatility but they are simply unreliable over a certain period of time and use.
Pros and Cons
iHome iP38 Portable Speakers
These speakers, for their size are excellent. I was totally amazed at the sound quality, especially the bass response for such a small speaker. The bass, considering the size, is clean without distortion. If you weren't actually looking at the speaker you would think it was much larger based on the audio quality. I got a great deal at Costco. They normally sell for 79.99, but there was a 30 dollar instant rebate, which brought the price down to 49.99. What's really nice about the speakers is they can also be battery operated so you can take them with you any where you go. The hard case also provides ample protection. They also have an auxilary jack for other audio devices. The alarm clock is another nice feature. All in all it is an excellent buy. I don't think you will be disappointed.
Pros and Cons
iHome Model iP38 Speakers
For the price, Costco, $49.95, this is a pretty good bargin considering other stores charging a whole lot more.
Great size, good features, just a little shy on the sound output. Not a boom box by any measure, but great for office desk, or traveling.
