Summary: this thing is pretty small,3.5"x13.25".it looked bigger in the pictures.it sounds good but since its small its hard to hear more than twenty feet away while outside.i can't set it next to me while in the sun because the phone overheats and turns off so i have to set it in the shade.plenty loud inside.there is no way to carry it since there is no handle.i give it a death grip while carrying it because im afraid i'll drop it.it will charge the phone if the phone is in it...
Summary: We primarily use it with our iPhone and Pandora internet radio. Along with this unit, we also tried out the Panasonic SC-HC20 and the Logitech S715i. Here is what I found: Pure-Fi Anywhere- descent sound, not enough base, not enough volume- nothing special and about the same price as the S715i. Sound quality is a 7. Panasonic SC-HC20- poorest sound quality of the three, but it was nice that it included AM/FM radio and a CD player.
Summary: I recently received this speaker to replace a very old speaker which could not charge my new iPhone 3GS. This speaker works exactly as expected - it charges the phone and does not complain about iPhone compatibility. I don't expect much from a speaker other than clear sound and this speaker sounds fine to me. However, it does have a flaw for me - it does not provide fine enough control over the volume.
Summary: I opened the Pure-Fi out of the box and plopped my iPod on. Right off the bat, I thought the unit was defective as every button on the Pure-Fi console worked except for the volume increase button. I then took the remote control it came with and was able to increase AND decrease the volume.
Summary: I have the first generation (I think the MM-50(white)) one of these and I loved it! I decided to upgrade to a supposedly better one. After listening to this new one, I am really not happy. It doesnt even sound better than my old, cheaper one. The only plus is that the remote has more funtions on it and the charger packs away with the unit. I highly recommend going for the older one which is half price, unless you really need the color black.
Summary: I bought this item for our Summer outdoor activities. I was very happy with the sound of the speakers and that it charges the iPod, however, very disappointed with the battery lifetime. I was described to last 10hours and I only got 6 hours (non stop, so it was very easy to count). That is my major concern. It's good that it has a remote and the surround button really gives the sound a boost.
Summary: The sound is OK and the unit works well enough, except for one quirk. When playing soft passages of classical music, the speakers and iPod turn themselves off! This problem doesn't occur when using headphones or my other speaker system. (I also have the Bose system, but that unit is too big and too fragile for routine travel.) The problem also doesn't occur with other types of music. I guess it just gets bored with my music selections.
Excerpt: Ich war auf der Suche nach einem kompakten, möglichst leicht zu transportierendem HiFi-System für mein iPhone 3G. Da ich generell von Bose-Produkten recht überzeugt bin, habe ich mich zuerst für das "Bose Sounddock Portable" interessiert. Nachdem ich das Gerät Probe gehört hatte und mir der Preis von 399 Euro in der Relation zur Klangqualität und des Einsatzbereiches doch zu hoch war machte ich mich auf die Suche nach Alternativen.
Pros: sehr portabel, integrierter Akku (mit sehr geringer Ladedauer), Preis/Leistung in Ordnung
Cons: schlechte Verarbeitung des Docks, Sound der Grösse entsprechend eher dünn
