Summary: Incredible sound like you'd think you would get from Bose. All great fidelity starts with clarity, and the sounddock provides this in spades. You. Can really crank these speakers up and enjoy why you spent the extra money...
Summary: only drawbacks are... price price price price... build is good, it sounds VERY CLEAR battery life is excellent... a cool product... too expensive if you ask me... shop around you might find another unit with similar sound quality and volume for less.
Summary: This product fill all my needs and expectations. It's small, portable and rechargable with a great sound quality that caracterized Bose. Take some time to decide the purchase of this product but thinking of sound quality and the portability. The main purpose to buy this product was to use it in my pool area and works great in that area, really booms the area.
Pros: Portability and sound.
Cons: For the price at least can include the cable to connect other products that do not fit in the ipod dock.
Summary: I wanted something small and portable to use out by the pool or on picnics/camping, etc. with great sound to play my Ipod. Everyone marvels at the sound poduced by this small sized speaker system. So far battery life appears to be excellent (5+ hours). I got a case to go along with it so we could take it anywhere safely. I am very happy with the purchase.
Pros: Excellent sound quality from a small sized speaker system. Very portable, especially when you use the case to take it on outings. Battery lasts a long time before requring a recharge. If you can afford the high price, I would definitely recommend it.
Cons: The biggest con in my opinion is the price. I had to think long and hard before making the purchase. Even though I love the sound it produces for it's size, I still feel it is overpriced and think Bose should bring it down at least under $299 (I paid $359 + case).
Summary: After continplating on the high price I finally broke down and got this. It is by far the best sounding "portable" speakers out their. Sound quality is awesome. It doesn't get any better than this for it's size. The battery lasts more than its claim of 3.5 hours too.
Pretty good sound, but don't think its worth the expense

Summary: Truly portable speaker system. The sound is pretty good, but for the price, I expected more. I had a another brand, and Bose's sound quality is only slightly better. I wish there was a way to adjust bass/treble sound, but the only sound adjustment you can make on this thing is for volume. I like the rechargeable battery that lasted over 3 hours.
Summary: is play at fairly loud levels. It will fill up a room, or provide good levels outside on deck or porch. And it does so without the buzzes and rattles I've experienced with other products. What it does not do well is play music with tonal accuracy. It is pleasant, but nowhere near what's in the file. It will play lower (usable down to around 60hz, never distorted or overdriven). It will not give you any soundstage at all.
