iHome iW1 Available Aug 31 at 2PM EST

Yes! According to iHome, the long awaited iHome iW1 is available Wednesday, August 31st at 2PM EST.

From iHome:
“The wait is over! We’re excited to announce that the iW1 AirPlay wireless speaker system will be available for purchase Wednesday, August 31 at 2PM EST at ihomeaudio.com/iW1BC.

Due to your overwhelming response on the mailing list we expect our initial supply to sell out within the first day. Please note we will be replenishing our stock as quickly as possible and will send you notice when more become available for purchase. ”

It’s not all good news since they’ll probably sell out on the first day, but we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

  1. so just (to say it the old fashioned way) hit F5 on august 30rd? or are the ones subscribed in the mailing list going to get it faster?
    i actually subscribed a few months ago, but didn’t get any mail.

    1. Same. No email alerting me of such release date. And they said we’d get an early purchase window? This thing releases in two days… FAIL.

      God I want one so bad…

      1. i also want it so bad… and i was in the mailing list since 2010… didn’t get any mail u_U’ and also i’m not from the USA i hope thats not a problem…. (spanish here U_U’)

        1. Hi, I’m from good old Europe too and signed up in 2010. My mail was caught by the spam filter. Maybe you should check yours…

      2. Me too. I signed up back in January and haven’t received any notice from iHome. IIRC the original page said they would send either a discount code or a special gift to those who signed up for the mailing list.

  2. With iW1 is it then possible to bring it to the park and play wireless from your iPhone to the iW1? Or do you need at Wi-fi internet connection? On iHomes page it says:
    “AirPlay works wherever there is a Wi-Fi network.” What does that mean?


    1. I ordered through normal process but the confirmation email said the item was backorder and would ship in 3-4 weeks. What a rip off!!!

  3. they blocked all customers from outside US (i even have a US shipping address), and not even with a proxy was i able to order. f** ’em , I’m going with a sonos then, if they don’t need my money…

    1. My order confirmation email says: “Your order is currently: Processing”…. I hope that means that it will be shipped soon.

  4. I purchased one at 2PM yesterday and barely managed to get the order to go through due to the bad gateway. I just kept hitting the refresh on the page and after not getting it to let me check out I hit the Amazon Payment button instead to get off of their site for processing. Worked like a charm! Only downside was that Amazon decided to default me to 2 day shipping which cost me an extra $30. Good thing I used the Rock20 coupon code to get $60 off.

    My plan was to cancel that order and place another order. So I placed a second order to make sure it would go through and then got an email saying the item was backordered. My first order went through at 2:04 PM and the second went through at 2:20 PM. The order numbers were roughly 200 numbers apart. So I’d imagine that they didn’t have a ton of these things (a couple hundred is my guess?) and that they sold out in less than 15 minutes.

    I just called in to cancel my second order and she said that the speakers should ship out today. So I should have mine Monday I’m guessing.
