As audiophiles, even if we go out, we wouldn’t forget to bring with us our audio devices. We love listening to music anywhere we go. Taking a stroll in the park, sitting at our work’s lounge, or even studying at the campus grounds, music is one thing that would complete our day. So what audio device would be a perfect companion in these kinds of outdoor activities? How about a portable speaker that is very compact, portable, and convenient to bring around with us anywhere and anytime? Have you ever heard of the brand, iHome?

It is also very well known for its line of dock speakers specially designed for iPhones and iPods, thus coming up with the common small “i” in its name. Here is iHome IM60GT Review.

iHome IM60GT Review – Performance

What can we say about the iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker’s performance? Simply amazing. We were very impressed with this portable speaker most especially when it comes to audio production as well as bass response. Having a small and compact design should have small sound output also but the iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker contradicts this belief. With its small size, this portable speaker pumps out great big sound and powerful bass.

Playing the tracks from Calvin Harris was made even better and enjoyable with this portable speaker. Streaming dance and pop music from our smartphone’s Spotify app was very satisfying also. Thanks to the small but absolutely impressive speakers of the iHome IM60GT. It delivers clear and crisp sound for its size. Emphasizing how small and compact it is, its sound quality and volume can actually fill a medium-sized room like one of our bedrooms. Aside from impressive sound quality, the iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker packs a surprising bass response that is really strong and dominating. Even at higher volume levels, we didn’t observe or notice any distortions.

For its power, the iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker is built with a long-lasting rechargeable internal lithium ion battery that has an average battery life of up to 2.5 hours. This 2.5 hours of battery may be too short for a portable speaker, which it really is, but you can also make use of it while charging via its USB input. You can connect the iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker with your laptop while playing your saved playlist.

iHome IM60GT 3.5mm Aux Portable Speaker – Design

We find the design of the iHome Speaker to be very functional. Aside from that, it also looks good and eye-catching.

The iHome Speaker is very small and compact with a measurement of 2.4 x 2.1 x 2.3 inches and a weight of 5.6 ounces only. This portable speaker is easy to grip, hold, and carry in the palm of our hands, in our pockets, or even in our bag. Thus we claim it to be a space-saving portable speaker.

This portable speaker is available in two solid colors such as the Blue and Purple together with translucent colors such as Blue, Gray, Green Neon, Orange Neon, Pink Neon, Pink, and Purple. It is similar to the design of the XBOOM Mini which has an expandable vacuum body. It can be closed by twisting and locking both ends and it can also be used (which is better) when both ends are opened. The iHome Speaker is designed with a 3.5mm Aux input and a USB charging/audio input. What is missing though with this portable speaker are buttons to swiftly have access with music streaming controls.

 

iHome Wireless Speaker Review – Connectivity

The iHome Portable Bluetooth speaker can only be connected with different devices via a 3.5mm Aux input. You can also make use of the USB charging/audio input to stream your music while charging. It does not have wireless connection capability which is quite disappointing if you’re used to streaming music without any cords. The iHome Portable Bluetooth Speaker does not also have a speakerphone capability so you cannot use it for handling wireless calls.
