Popular manufacturer iHome is showing off its new comprehensive line of audio products at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. First up, the company is introducing a pair of Lightning-enabled speakers compatible with the iPhone 5, iPad mini, fourth-generation iPad, and fifth-generation iPod touch. The pictured iDL100 features two Lightning docks and a USB port to connect older iOS devices. An auto-sync feature syncs the speaker to the time from the iOS device. The iDL100 is expected to retail for $149.99 when released. Retailing for $99.99 when released, the iDL45 will feature a Lightning dock, USB port, and FM clock radio functions. And iHome has also taken the wraps off of its next-generation retro boombox. The iBT44 features Bluetooth connectivity and is powered by batteries or an electrical outlet. Two, 1-inch tweeters and a power amp promise room-filling audio. The included remote control also magnetically attaches to the unit. It will retail for $199.99. On the headphone front, iHome is branching out offering everything from a wireless Bluetooth version to a fashion-conscious line. The 1B85 Bluetooth foldable headphones feature a dynamic, enhanced bass response along with a built-in mic and on-ear remote. The set will retail for $99.99 and include a travel pouch. The more budget-minded iB10 Sport Earhooks feature a Cord Cruncher Cable and will retail for $19.99. The iB22 headphones sport noise-canceling technology and will set you back $14.99.
