Great sound. Good product.


I purchased the SoundDock for streaming podcasts and music around the house and outside while entertaining. The dock is now outdated (I no longer have the old style iPhone) but I use the headphone jack now. Great, rich sound and well built housing.

None so far.

You get what you pay for


This is the fifth Bose product in my family. First in my house. It's amazing. Sound is on par with wave radios.

Great quality


This is a BOSE, what more could be said. Looked at some of the other reviews and all I can say is compared to other compact radios and devices the sound quality is much greater. I am using with my iPhone 4S and I can listen to iHeart Radio as well as...

This product would be good in someones kitchen not moving. This thing is not portable nor does it have a handle. For the price you can buy a nice stereo receiver with bookshelf speakers.

It sounded very nice, probably the best I have heard from a compact system...

Very heavy, I assumed for the price it was rechargeable or at lease can use battery's. The dock portion felt like it was gonna break (very flimsy)

Not what I expected


Well, the only thing I really liked about this product is it was 50 dollars cheaper. Bass response has the full sound spectrum you would expect in a channel sound wave, but the highs are lost during the process. The middle frequency is not as dramatic...

Great quality as always! But low on features...Would have loved to have at least radio, USB port, built-in bluetooth for this price.

BOSE is the way to go


This is the top daddy to have, the sound is spot on, tons of bass, small footprint (maybe the length of your keyboard) but don't let its size fool you I've never heard a stereo sound so crisp and clear as this. If I ever see this on sale I'm going to...

The price is steep but, you get what you pay for it's a great product.

Bose Ipod dock


I didn't listen to reviews and bought the Klipsch unti for 150 on another major web site. It was a mistake after the remote quit working in three weeks. Sent it back and went to the reliability of Bose and your company. Snatched the Bose up for 269 and...

great sound


I bought and returned two different JBL sound docks from a different source that neither would not work properly because of interference form my wireless devices. The Bose works flawlessly and I recommend it highly.

The Bose SoundDock Series II is a very nice sounding unit. The sound quality you get is amazing considering the size of the dock. It has more volume then I thought it would and the clarity of sound is very good. It has slightly more bass then I thought...

Not many cons at all, on thing I would like is a "menu" button on the remote. It is a bit pricey but is worth the money considering the quality of sound.
