Great Kitchen/Desk Clock Radio!

bydcactus Aug 30, 2008
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Small, great sound, charges ipod, radio stations are easy to program.
Cons LCD is much too bright.
Recommended it? Yes

This radio is great for the kitchen or desk at work. It has great sound for the price and charges my ipod too. It comes with adapters for different ipods. I have a nano and it works fine. I saw a review that says it ruined an ipod, but I don't believe that is a typical experience. I got mine last... Read full review »


Not impressive

Pros Waking up to ipod music, radio/alarm.
Cons Poor design
Recommended it? No

Purchased this iH5 from Bed, Bath & Beyond using the 20% off coupon, purchase price was $79.99 after coupon. Controls for volume and station selection are difficult at best, they are flat circles that you push and turn. My daughter has an ipod video which in the beginning charged fine, but after a...

Great IPOD Dock to replace alarm radios

4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros reasonably priced great design/appearance
Cons volume/tuner knob flat, hard to turn speaker quality mediocre 1 alarm setting/no station...
Recommended it? Yes

The main reason I bought this dock was to charge and listen to my iPod when I go to sleep. All the other units on the market are designed as boom boxes which are a little bulky or lack good alarm features for bedside use.

This unit is very sleek looking and from first look you can tell it... Read full review »


Very nice kitchen radio/iPod player

Pros Good sound quality, connecting an iPod is childs play
Cons Volume/Channel controls are clumsy
Recommended it? Yes

I recently bought this unit to get a new radio for my kitchen. So far, I'm a happy customer. Radio reception (FM and AM) is very good. The sound is clear, even when set to high volume.

Of course, you wouldn't buy this unit if all you cared about was the radio component. What attracted me... Read full review »

Pros It can quickly break your Ipod!!!
Cons Well, for $100 you'll end up having a broken Ipod!
Recommended it? No

This product broke my perfectly working ipod unit. After docking it to this unit for just 2 minutes, it started heating up and making clicking sounds. I then removed my ipod and noticed that it became unresponsive. The screen also started displaying an Ipod logo with a sad face and under it is the... Read full review »


The iHome iH5: A Clock Radio That Is Not Timeless

bygreen-z Oct 2, 2005
11 Helpfuls 12 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros First-ever clock radio with iPod dock
Cons Lacks expected features and is poorly designed. Nano & iPod video require extra cost...
Recommended it? No

As MP3s overtake CDs as the preferred way to transport music it was inevitable that an iPod clock radio would come to market. CD clock radios have been around for years. Now is the time for an iPod update. But as appealing as the concept of an iPod clock radio is, I am disappointed in the iH5.

Pros Design, Radio, Clock
Cons Volume control not too precise at low levels.
Recommended it? Yes

I saw an ad in Newsweek for this and ended up purchasing it at Bed Bath & Beyond. Price was $99, but I had a 20% off coupon, so I got it for $80 tax, which is a great deal.

I have it at work and it has been VERY nice to have. I can charge my ipod, listen to my music at work, and use the... Read full review »

Pros Nicely integrated design with a small footprint for a bedside table. Convenient iPod...
Cons Unremarkable sound. Volume/tuning knobs difficult to use. Face lighting too bright even...
Recommended it? No

This first-of-its-kind clock/radio/alarm with iPod dock is a good concept, but with enough flaws that it will be worth waiting to see what other manufacturers bring to the market before spending $100 on the iH5. Mine worked fine out of the box, but within two days the speakers stopped working. The... Read full review »


Music in Bed - iHome iH5 Clock Radio for iPod

byzequ Aug 18, 2005
14 Helpfuls 15 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great idea well executed. Qualtity, feature rich, performs better than expected.
Cons Controls are a little stiff. No included remote.
Recommended it? Yes

Let's face it – buying an alarm clock is usually not a fun endeavor. By nature, alarm clocks are a necessary evil. Sometimes (See my review on the Sharper Image Sonic Boom Loud + Vibrating Alarm Clock (SA650)) very evil. The iHome iH5 Clock Radio for iPod takes some of the sting out of waking up in...

Great value for $100 but could use a few improvements

Pros Light, good sound, great value, looks nice, docking port, line-out
Cons Volume and setting controls clumsy; LCD illumination is a little too much
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this product about 3 days ago so I've had some time to use it. I've used it to play music via the radio and IPod (I own the 30G IPod photo which works just fine). I've used the sleep timer function and the alarm function. I'm pretty familiar with what it does and some of its quirks.
