iHome product debut at CES
Docking speaker station maker for iPods and iPhones iHome announced on Tuesday it will debut three new products to its range in 2009 at the CES show due to kick off tomorrow. The company will show off its new flagship product, the iP1 speaker system that support iPods and iPhones and is rated at 100 watts for its twin 4-inch woofers and two 1-inch silk-dome tweeters. The Digital Power Station processor was engineered by Bongiovi Acoustics and iHome claims the product is its most advanced ever.
iHome will also introduce the iP71 computer speaker system, its first that is also compatible with iPods and iPhones and can sync the devices with a user's iTunes library. A switch is included to prevent the synchronization when users just want to listen to their music. The system also plays and charges all docking iPods and iPhones. Sound is reproduced via a pair of Reson8 speakers.
The iH15 LED Color Changing Stereo System cube only accommodates iPods and is unique thanks to its translucent design that lights up in a variety of colors. Users can either pre-set their own favorite color or let the cube select its own light-up sequence based on the tracks that are playing. The iH15 uses a set of Reson8 speakers and a passive subwoofer to reproduce a broad range of audio.
No release dates or pricing information for the new products has been released, though the iH15 is believed to cost just under $85.
