Sony RDP-XF100iP iPod Speaker - Portable Songstress


The Sony RDP-XF100iP iPod Speaker is Sony's latest premium iPod/iPhone docking device and features a removable lithium-ion battery for portability. We check to see if it has the lungs to match.

Sony RDP-XF100IP


As most people have commented on other retail websites this product has about a 12 to 18 month shelf life. I was using mine today it was working fine and then put my 3GS back on and received an "ERROR" message and now the machine is a brick. Many other...

Consumer review by: MANK118 (



A great buy for its price! superb sound, awesome bass! I especially like the "feather-touch" of the control buttons - "it can go from "0" to "60" under 2 secs (just kidding, but you get the message). The only cons I have are: inadequate handle, or...

Consumer review by: DeeDenver (

overpriced for the amount


It looks very nice but the sound quality on this is much lower than I anticipated. It distorts when you turn it up loud-for the price & for Sony brand, I expected much more. You would be just as well off buying one of the $75-$100 units they sell...
