The Wonderful Bose Sound I expected
5 Star Review   By BlessedX4 on Adorama - May 21, 2013   

Bose has a great reputation for delivering sound quality you just can't find elsewhere. I am completely satisfied with this purchase.

Bose SoundDock Series II digital music system
4 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 22 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I'm not sure you can ever go wrong with a Bose. I was only a little disappointed that this couldn't be used with a battery pack for more portability but after reading other sounddock specs it doesn't sound like any battery pack would last more than 6 or 8 hours (at least on a high end sounddock). The only other thing that I didn't like was there was no volume indicator. Other than that I love listening to my music on the Bose SoundSock II. "

You will not be disappointed.
5 Star Review   By Dave on Adorama - Jan 12, 2011   

I bought this for my son who will be heading off to college next year so he needed something portable. This thing rocks louder than my home stereo system. I am impressed.

Practical Use of iPod
5 Star Review   By El Supremo on Adorama - Dec 6, 2010   

We had resisted purchasing this item due to price, but finally relented and now question why we didn't buy this item earlier. We were able to purchase the SoundDock Series II with a spare battery and carrying case. The system remains plugged in 95% of th

Great sound
4 Star Review   By member joshuafromoshawa - May 14, 2010   

Strengths: Clear sound

Weakness: difficult to get iPod onto the connection

All in all there are not too many weaknesses. some have complained that when you have a skin or case on your iPod touch you will not be able to connect your iPod. However, if you take out the plastic tray (that comes with your iPod--mine was white--and with the dock system--it is black) in the dock and just leave it empty you can fit the iPod and case without any problems. I checked out other systems and this was the best quality of sound. plus you can use it as an aux for TV or your computer and get some great sound for your movies.

Good - But Expensive
4 Star Review     

Strengths: - sound quality is good - remote works well - charges iPod when in dock (while playing or not) - more portable than I thought it would be - max volume is pretty loud

Weakness: - price - docks at an angle (worried about messing up connectors) - cannot browse through playlists with remote

This was an impulse / hadn't done my research buy. I am happy with this purchase. It is a lot of money and I wonder how iPod speakers within $100 of the price compare in sound.

sounds great doesnt work with new Nano
1 Star Review   By member neatfleet2555 - Dec 27, 2008   

Strengths: good sound,

Weakness: doesnt charge new Nano,

I've had this dock for 6 months and it sound great, just got new Nano's for the kids and found out the Bose doesn't charge them. This is unacceptable, paid almost $300.00 for it, now its obsolete? I have been using Bose stuff since college (301) have Bose speakers inside and outside my house, but very unhappy with this.

These products were made for each other
4 Star Review   By member GibletAndBits - Jul 7, 2008   

Strengths: Compact footprint, great bass response, remote control and beautiful cabinet

Weakness: Remote control does not provide full control, just power, volume, play/pause and fwd/reverse. Pricey

I had the opportunity to try one of these units in a hotel I stayed at and was shocked to hear bass in songs that I didn't even know existed! For such a small cabinet, it does a wonderful job of covering the entire range of the music. I love the portability of the unit as I can take it outside and enjoy a wonderful sound system on my patio with a power hookup (the portable version of this unit runs on battery). The fit and finish is excellent and it makes a very nice piece to look at in any room. The unit is pricey but at the online vendor I used, I was able to get a carrying case along with this item for a final price of $270 which was a great deal in my option.

Fantabulous
5 Star Review   By member StillStacy68 - Jun 21, 2008   

Strengths: Sound quality

Received as a birthday gift from my husband, and although we have multiple stereos and computers with high quality speakers to plug our iPods into, I prefer this Bose above all the others.

Great !
5 Star Review   By member claudius1968 - Nov 21, 2007   

Strengths: Wonderful sound, especially considered it's coming from something so small. And very nice design.

Weakness: It would have been nice to have other inputs, in case you want to attach it to something else.

I read some negative reviews about it. I don't see the reason. It's true it is a bit expensive, but it's really worth it and it's something that will not let you down.

Bose Sounddock
4 Star Review   By member rothry - Apr 9, 2007   

Strengths: Best looking iPod speaker system around. Great overall sound, slightly weak bass.

Weakness: No adapter for latest generation of iPod nano. Must contact Apple directly for universal adapter.

The nano adapter that comes with the unit does not work with the latest nano model. Pretty unbelievable considering that Bose makes this unit just for Apple products. Very disappointing that you have to go elsewhere to obtain the working adapter. However, they do send it out for free. Other than that, the unit is great.

Excellent Ipod accessory!
4 Star Review   By member nikemanny - Dec 31, 2006   

Strengths: Good sound quality. Excellent design/color.

Weakness: Bass sound could be a little stronger.

I believe Bose has done a great job in the Bose Soundock. The quality of the sound is great. There's a good balance between the bass and treble. The only downside is the bass could just be a tad bit stronger. The remote control works just as it should. Overall, a good addition to the Ipod collection.

SoundDock iPod Digital Music System Black
5 Star Review   By member NormaSwats - Dec 27, 2006   

Strengths: awesome sound

Weakness: a bit pricey

The sound was as expected..AWESOME. Having a remote control makes it so much easier to use the iPod, especially from across the room. The system is small, yet the sound is BIG! One feature that puts Bose way ahead of the rest is the clarity of the sound, whether you have it cranked up, or very soft, the sound is crystal clear. Bose is a bit pricey, but well worth the money spent.
