Summer is upon us and that means backyard BBQs, beach days and hanging out on your deck drinking a frosty pop with your friends. The only thing you need to make things perfect other than burgers, hot dogs, beverages and Devin Brugman lounging by the pool is some music. Lucky for you iHome has you covered.
iHome is a division of SDI Technologies that was launched back in 2005 to market iPod Electronics. In just its first year, iHome became the #1 brand in the iPod Electronics market and its iPod Clock Radio became, and continues to be, the #1 selling iPod Speaker System in North America. They have branched out and now offer a much broader selection. That is where their latest and greatest device, the iBT4 comes in. The iBT4 Boombox allows you to stream wireless digital audio via Bluetooth from your iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The iBT4 also has FM radio, a line-in jack, as well as a line-out jack for an expandable audio experience. The device operates on an internal rechargeable battery or can be plugged in with the included universal AC adaptor.The device measures 7.72″ W x 7.76″ H x 5.71″ D and is just barely over 3lbs so it’s easily carried where ever you need it. The lithium-ion battery will give you up to 7 hours of listening pleasure which SHOULD cover an entire beach day or BBQ. The Reson8 speaker chambers are specially designed, sealed speaker enclosures that deliver astounding clarity, depth and power. If you wanna bump a little Kanye or Daft Punk, the iBT4 has SRS TruBass sound enhancement that offers digital sound processing to give your music extra bass and clarity. (The unit also has a built in FM tuner but if you are like me, I can’t even listen to FM anymore, give me Sirius!)
