My iPhone connects via Bluetooth within 5 seconds of turning it on. Works well up to 10-15 feet away from my iPhone. Sounds really nice in my home or office - surprisingly rich base. The hands-free phone also works great with good sound quality. The only complaint I have is that sometimes in my car (a Prius) it is difficult to hear when placed in the center consol cup holder - just a little more power would have made this a 5 star review. …

I just got this today and decided to plug in to charge. I plugged in the USB cable and plugged it into my USB wall port. The instr I just got this today and decided to plug in to charge. I plugged in the USB cable and plugged it into my USB wall port. The instructions stated that the iDM9 would have a light when charging..... well nothing. So I took it to my computer and nothing. I decided to let it sit for a little bit on the charge at the computer. After about two hours and the already previous frustration, I really wanted to see if the thing would work. So I turned it on and yay it had lights. Okay I thought we were going somewhere. I tried to get my iPhone5S to connect Bluetooth to it and my phone could not locate it. I then grabbed an auxiliary cable and plugged it into my phone an the iDM9. I connected to Pandora and okay I hear sound. VERY LITTLE SOUND. I hit the volume key and nada... that is as loud as it gets. My iPhone plays music louder then this by it's self. I am going to call Apple in a few moments but so far.....this is a piece of junk. I will add more when I speak to Apple about this item to see what they say. …
