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 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...

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...

Review: Bose SoundDock Portable


Now Bose has a new option: an almost identical but portable version of SoundDock, which not surprisingly is titled SoundDock Portable ($399). As the name suggests, SoundDock Portable is capable of being used indoors or outdoors, regardless of whether...

We were on the edge of two possible ratings-given all the alternatives that are now out there, SoundDock Portable won't blow anyone away for the $399 asking price-but we felt that it was still worthy of our general recommendation. As with the original...

Bose SoundDock


Let's get one thing straight: these aren't the kind of speakers you throw in your tote or suitcase for travel. If that's your bag, check out offerings such as Altec Lansing's inMotion iM3 or imMini portable speakers. The SoundDock measures nearly a...

Great sound, very good 3D separation for a system this small. Excellent volume that doesn't distort. Sound is never harsh and bass is clear. Works with all iPods except the Shuffle and charges your iPod too. Remote has good range. Easy to move from...

EQ and compression not perfect for classical music, consider the Klipsch iGroove instead or the Altec Lansing inMotion iM7. No 3.5mm jack to use speakers with other portable audio devices. Must be plugged into AC, can't use batteries

Great sound from a relatively small system. Music sound is always pleasing with a surprising overall richness. The Bose have good bass and the highs are strong, though a tad under-emphasized. The SoundDock Digital Music System is definitely good enough...
