Summary: This docking station has incredible sound quality for its size and price. After years of using an IPod, I recently received a Zune HD as a gift and bought the $12.99 monthly Zune Pass. I quickly realized that, with a Zune and a good in-house wireless router, I could have (almost) any music I wanted any time I wanted it anywhere in my house. But I needed a portable way to amplify the music to make the system really work.
Summary: I was very surprised at the amount of output this little system has. The only thing that was a little unexpected was the fact that the sub on the back is a passive radiator and not active. It still has great sound quality and bass so that is a minimal downfall. The price was right too. My wife enjoys it very much and uses it daily.
Summary: I recently bought a Zune HD and wanted a sound dock. After looking at the few that are available for the Zune, I settled on the Kicker ZK500. I had read the great reviews, but was still skeptical about the sound from a unit of that size. I was pleasantly suprised to say the least. I listen to hard rock and music with a lot of base, and it is often turned up loud. This system delivers. The sound quality is awesome with no distortion even at the highest sound level.
Summary: I purchased this Zune dock over 6 months ago. I use my Kicker every day at work, 10 hours a day, 5 days (or more) a week. I also use it at home very often. This piece of machinery is hands down the best audio dock that I've ever owned or had the privilege using. The Kicker has fantastic sound, and plenty of it. I needed a dock that could give a little push because my work isn't the quietest of areas. I have no problem hearing my music whatsoever.
Summary: This is absolutely amazing. The sound is crystal clear -- even at thumping levels that threaten to crack the walls. It comes with a slim remote that conveniently controls all the functions of the Zune. You can also put it in standby mode and have it charge your Zune while it's off. One pleasant surprise was how small it was. It takes up practically no room at all. The sound can't be described -- it has to be experienced.
Summary: This Kicker Zune Dock is almost unbelievable. I hooked it up, and it was SO crisp. Clear, clean sounds, and zero distortion. It has volume that ranges up to 40, and I didnt go past 34, simply because it was THAT loud, and it presented crystal clear sound - I cant stress enough how there was a LACK of distortion. And it RUMBLED! The bass was fantastic! I couldnt believe that such a deep penetrating bass was coming from such a little unit.
Summary: It was so much fun to open the box to my new Kicker, plug in my Zune and be totally thrilled that the sound was wonderful! I work outdoors so I'm able to listen to my Zune for several hours a day. But, it's wonderful to share some of the great music I've heard that day with my family. Thank you so much!
Summary: I was blown away by this speaker dock. I bought the Altec Lansing M604 and found it to be nice for the bedroom but decided I wanted more. The Kicker ZK-500 fit the bill. It really has amazing sound quality and volume. Use the provided rubber bumper disk (in with the aux cable bag) to minimize the zune vibration from the powerfull bass. if you dont use it you will get an annoing vibrating sound at volume level starting at 15.
Summary: Just received the ZK500 and it's amazing. Sound is awesome and very loud compared to other docks I have tested. It is simple to use and the included remote is easy to use and works with the Zune menu. It even has a back button, which is a rarity. A definate buy if you want awesome sound!
