Review: Bose SoundDock Series II

 

Four years later, the world of iPod speakers has changed a lot. Now there are hundreds of all-in-one speaker systems, sold in different colors, shapes, and sizes, each with slightly different sound signatures and features. Most of them were...

Despite occasional speed bumps in Apple's release of new iPods and iPhones, there's no doubt in our minds that the company has continued to seriously push both technology and design forward-so much so that four-year-old products such as the original...

Bose SoundDock II review

 

If you value thrilling energy and precise timing above all else, the SoundDock II has much to offer

Price ; rhythmic delivery ; broad yet cohesive soundstage

Very little at this price

A talented iPod dock that shows Bose has more in its arsenal than high-end kit

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...

Consumer review by: Biver (newegg.com)

overpriced

 

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...

Amazing

 

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