Before I share some info about this review over at Anything But iPod, let me tell you about my only experience with an iHome product. Simply put, I returned the iHome Alarm clock for the iPod the next day. The alarm functions were week, the audio from the speakers weren’t very dynamic, and there was little to no bass response. I wanted this to work for my wife’s ipod so she could listen to her music and I could use the alarm clock. Both functions were not ideal for us after trying them. I ended up getting her a JBL Dock and I got a cheap alarm clock from Wal Mart that works fantastic.

Graham Skee over at ABI reviews the iHome dock for the Zune and he didn’t seem to care much for it…

Pros
  • Easy to see if the alarm is on
  • Two alarms
  • 2 / 5 / 7 day alarm settings
Cons
  • Dock inserts are hard to change
  • Remote not included $20 extra
  • Poor build quality
  • Zune remote does not work with the dock

Head over to ABI to read the entire review…

    Oh yeah, that’s nice. Although i think I am addicted to blue displays ever since Indigo watches came out..

    anyone here try one? I played around with one in store, i just cant justify spending 130 (thats the price in canada) for an alarm clock..
