iHome has announced three more alarm clock speaker systems to its lineup at CES 2012 – revealing the iW4, iP18 and iD50. All three have iPhone, iPad and/or iPod docking support, in addition to the traditional alarm clock.
The iW4 includes support for AirPlay – meaning you can play music from iTunes or your iOS device wirelessly – and has support for its iOS apps. It also features Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, FM radio with 6 presets, adjustable EQ settings and dual alarm settings. It will be priced at $269.99.
The iP18 is a more cube-shaped alarm clock, with LED lights to change colours and to flash depending on your alarm settings. It also features support for its own iOS apps, dual alarms and the ability to sync times with your iOS device – so if you change the time on an iPhone, the clock will change once docked. It does not come with radio support and will retail for $69.99.
The iD50 again features the dock, but adds AM and FM radio support, Bluetooth connectivity, dual alarms, clock syncing with the iOS device and an integrated mic so you can pair your phone and use it as a hands-free device (it also includes talk and end call buttons). In addition, this has support for its own iOS apps and adjustable EQ, but no AirPlay support. It has a price tag of $169.99.
No word on an Australian release date, but these will be out “later this year” in the United States. Full press release and gallery is below.
