Bose SoundDock 10


Bose, the audio brand that can be used as a case study for marketing students, has very recently released their latest music system offering, the Sound Dock 10. The press release demo we attended was quite chic, but now finally we have got our hands on...

The Bose SoundDock 10 Digital Music System is available for Rs. 40,388, and that’s not cheap by any stretch of anything. For this price ther are Home theaters available that have better sound. What the Bose does have, is a very classy looking,...

Bose Sound Dock Portable


In a world full of iPod docking stations, it's no surprise to see Bose launch yet another. The latest to hit the stores is simply called Bose iPod Docking Station. The need for a docking station

Bose SoundDock 10 Digital Music System


First, let's get this out of the way immediately: The Bose SoundDock 10 Digital Music System costs $599.95 (direct). If you're still reading, it's important to note that this is one of the best-sounding iPod speaker systems Bose has ever developed. But...

Clean Design. Extremely powerful. Deep bass delivery with virtually no distortion. Crisp musical response. Video output

Overpriced. Remote control lacks full iPod navigation. No buttons on dock itselfall controls are on the remote. Composite video cable not included

For $600, this iPod speaker system should come with a full-featured remote control and some nice extras, but if you buy the Bose SoundDock 10, you'll have to settle for excellent audio performance alone.

Bose Sounddock Portable


Bose's new SoundDock Portable looks a lot like the original SoundDock, which isn't portable at all. The funny thing is, this new dock isn't all that easy to transport, either. That's despite a hand grip, a retractable iPod tray, and the ability to...

Pleasing sound quality. Attractive, minimalist design. Retractable iPod tray. Remote has good range

Expensive. Portability is limited. Remote navigation could be better

The Bose SoundDock Portable looks and sounds good, but its limited portability and hefty price tag detract from the overall package.

Bose SoundDock


The SoundDock is Bose's attempt to impress iPod owners who are looking for a convenient docking solution without sacrificing style and sound. Among casual consumers, Bose represents assured quality without the need to know the technical tidbits behind...

Premium sound quality; compact design; charges iPod; remote control included

Does not sync your iPod; you pay a premium price

In the sound quality category, the SoundDock comes out on top.

Bose SoundDock review


We had high expections (okay, maybe not) when we heard about the Bose SoundDock, yet another speaker system for iPods (save the first and second gen models) and iPod minis that also charges your player. CNET rather likes the player, though; it filled...

Bose SoundDock (white)


Originally available only in white , the SoundDock has since been released in black as well. The speaker ships with adapters for various generations of iPods (the only incompatible models are the first two iPods, which lack the dock connector on the...

The Bose SoundDock is simple to set up and use: attractive design; sounds good compared to other iPod speakers; charges iPod while docked; includes basic remote.

Expensive; works only with iPods (and iPod Minis) equipped with a docking connector.

If you don't mind the high price and lack of an auxiliary input, the Bose SoundDock will turn your iPod into a nice bedroom or office stereo system.

Review: Bose SoundDock 10


Though we have a lot more to say about this system, and the full answer is complex, the short version is a somewhat tepid "sure." With SoundDock 10, Bose doesn't offer a better $600 audio experience than either of its peer-priced rivals, and like...

As noted at the start of this review, SoundDock 10 really sits on the edge of our general (B) and limited (B-) recommendations-we're not part of the Bose hype wagon, so when we drop $600 on a speaker system, we expect a lot more for the money than a...

Bose SoundDock 10 for the iPod


Bose has stepped up its range of iPod docks with the revelation of the killer new SoundDock10 for the iPod and the iPhone. Measuring just 17 x 9 x 10 inches, the dock is made up of a custom subwoofer and a couple of Bose Twiddler transducers. Other...

Review: Bose SoundDock Portable


The portable version of Bose's iconic iPod speaker system improves on the original but sports an even-higher price tag.

The Portable also includes touch-sensitive Volume Up and Volume Down buttons, located on the right-hand side of the system. Separating these buttons from the dock cradle, where they were located on the original SoundDock, is useful thanks to another...
