Summary: Bose is an excellent brand and the music still sound great like any other bose speakers. I was very disappointed because it does not have any audio input besides the 32-pin which is for Iphone4/ipod touch. I had the 32-pin bluetooth adapter and had use with sony dock (this dock have additional audio input) for 32-pin and works great. You need a 32-pin audio input designs specifically for bose in order for it to work.
Summary: One thing we can all agree upon as overseas Defense contractors is that space is precious. Commonly, we share a 12 by 12 area (at least in Baghdad); and although it's not entirely unbearable, it is tight; consequently, we're constantly looking for ways to enhance our living space. The size and sound of the Bose Sound Dock makes it a sexy little addition to my living area (I bought the black version). The sound quality is beautiful, featuring the classic Bose flat base.
Summary: You should definitely buy the SoundDock if you want a nice looking system that's easy to set up, easy to use, and delivers decent sound from your iPod. But if you think you might want more than the limitations of an iPod-only system, you're much better off with a "desktop stereo" that accepts iPod input. For another $100 (or less), GREAT desktop systems from Yamaha, B&S, and several others are available. It's not really fair to compare the SoundDock to these systems.
Summary: Out of the box, the actual dock - which is attached with four screws to the actual speaker system - looks like it's going to break because it appears so loosely attached. Sure enough, after traveling with the unit (and packing it very safely I might add) the dock broke off the unit. The design is such that it almost seems like Bose anticipates you are going to break it and you can therefore unscrew it and go and spend even more money for a replacement dock port.
Summary: Thanks to the holidays I am now the owner of a Bose SoundDock and both the Altec Lansing inMotion iM7 and inMotion IM3. And while I have to begrudgingly give Bose it's due for (marginally) producing the best sound of the three, the experience of comparing the three systems left me feeling obligated to write a review. It's no mystery why so many audiophiles dislike Bose. Their marketing driven approach smacks of arrogance.
Summary: I own the iPod Nano. I experienced the Bose SoundDock at a Target in my home town. The store demo of the Bose SoundDock was amazing. I ordered the Bose SoundDock from the Bose website and it was delivered today. I was very upset when I discovered that a dock insert for an iPod Nano was not included in the shipment. I revisited the Bose website and reviewed the SoundDock web page. Bose's description of the product states that the SoundDock works with the Nano.
Summary: Bought one from JL and the dock had intermittant problems seeing the remote - sometimes good and sometimes no response. Changed the battery to the remote and no change. Guess I was getting interference from somewhere. I also had to crane my neck to access the Touch on the dock. Sound was fine as expected. I changed out the dock for a B&W mini and have had no problems with remote or craning my neck !
Summary: I bought this 2 days ago from another shop, and will be returning it because whenever an ipod is docked (essential for use!) there's an annoying high frequency electrical hiss (similar to big old CRT televisions). I've since found that it is common to all of these bose sounddocks and I personally find it far too irritating to put up with, especially at night when I am trying to sleep.
Summary: I have owned a Bose Soundock for a couple of years and used it to play my music collection in my living room. The sound is ok(i used to think it was great) and the styling attractive but after mine had an accident i began searching for a replacement. I visited countless stores and online review sites and have found a system that for a similar or slightly cheaper price blows the soundock away!
Summary: le Sound dock acheté en 2066 au prix fort, pour le iPOd Video ,n'offre pas d' entrée in, ni de plug in pour un mp3 sauf iPod!!! c' est quoi ce truc??pas d' adapatateur sur sur la prise frontale? why? c à chier :....US " Whe here are the best " Mauvaise politique , c' est comme un magasin dans un village, je suis le seul!.... Mauvaise vue des money maker, la Chine s' ammene , et est deja la.
