Summary: I bought this Logitech and the Bose Soundock Portable in 2012. The Logitech is GREAT considering the price. The Bose is more powerful, can handle significantly higher volumes without distortion, and sounds very rich/clean with strong bass at high volumes.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend who has used it for 1 year with no problems. The thing has very nice sound with strong bass, and I like the appearance and shape. After raving about it to my family, I received one as a gift for Christmas. It worked for 2 months, and I was really enjoying it.
Summary: I bought this product and only used it three times. Of course when I go to use it a fourth time it dies whenever I unplug it from the power source, thus making it NOT portable. I paid a lot money for this dock and it's ridiculous that it does not work already.
Summary: This product is not compatible with the 4th generation iPod touch. I went through 2 speakers and customer service with Logitech to find this out. The speakers will not work at all when the iPod is placed on the docking station. If you connect the 2 devices with an aux cable the speakers will work.
Summary: We've had this for well over a year. We bought it for the kids and then quickly "borrowed" it for ourselves. It tends to live in the kitchen, but I've used it while painting a house, gardening, working in the garage, etc.
Pros: See Ungoy's review below. It's nicely summed up there. Otherwise, robust, great sound, attractive design, small footprint, holds a charge well, works with every iPod (nano, regular, touch) we have. Also has a line-in for a 3.5mm plug in order to use (but not charge) any other kind of MP3 player. ...
Cons: Charging plug tends to work loose from the socket (in the unit) if the unit is handled a lot. But it's easy enough to plug back in. Though the compactness of the design is a plus, I'd have preferred a longer iPod dock (so case removal isn't required), and one that sits lower on the face of the un...
Pros: Good sound with moderate bass. This speaker was a gift from my wife. I had been looking for a couple weeks and had not found exactly what I was looking for. I will probably keep looking for a unit that holds the phone securely and has more boom.
Cons: I have to remove my protective case to get a connection on the dock. Once connected the phone feels loose. I would not trust it anywhere. I would not walk around with the phone in place. Especially with out a case! Did I mention that I don't like having to take my case off?
Summary: Overall, very pleased with the sound and mostly pleased with the interface and durability.
Pros: Portable, good battery life, recharges quickly, great sound
Cons: Since it is so portable (car, boat, RV, etc) it needs a 12v charging option; my remote always had a little trouble and has now quit working. Docking interface is too short - I have to remove the cover of my iPhone to dock it to the speaker.
Summary: I own almost all of Logitech's iPod docks and besides the non-portable AudioStation/Pure-Fi Elite these easily sound the best. I carry speakers from site to site and this was a no-brain purchase. They're not powered studio monitors but for small portables they're excellent.
Pros: -Great sound. Easily outperforms anything in its class, also those costing a lot more. Ample low end; its 4 radiators do their job. Separate high driver keeps sound clear. Boombox sound in the size of a desk radio. Will quickly achieve "turn that down" volume. -Revised docking bay vs Logitech's o...
Cons: These are relatively minor... -Internal battery. If/when it dies out you'll have to crack it open. Prefer to use my own rechargeable batteries. -Battery sound. Unplugging drops the low end out which is somewhat the purpose for this speaker dock. Would prefer some sort of "Loud" on/off function in...
