Bose SoundDock Portable

 

Bose's portable SoundDock delivers good sound quality in an attractive package, but don't plan on taking it very far.

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

Expensive. Portability is limited. Remote navigation could be better.

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...

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

Bose SoundDock Portable review: Bose SoundDock Portable

 

Bose SoundDock Portable

Relatively compact and portable iPod speaker with a detachable replaceable lithium-ion rechargeable battery that powers the speaker and iPod; includes auxiliary input and remote control; 30-day risk-free trial.

Expensive; no bass/treble controls; no clock or AM/FM radio; only three hours of battery life at full volume.

The Bose SoundDock Portable is a really good iPod speaker, but it should cost less than $400.

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 Portable

 

It might be OK for a backyard party, but the Bose SoundDock Portable might not be suited for the beach.

Overpriced and not exactly as portable as what the competition offers, the Bose SoundDock Portable isn’t that different from its non-portable sister model. It’s not exactly the easiest thing to lug around -- even though it features a retractable iPod...

Bose goes into the portable business with the Bose SoundDock Portable, an impressive speaker system designed to give the boombox treatment to portable media players.

We've seen Bose SoundDocks before, but this one has a carry handle and lithium-ion battery. Any good Jon?

Bose SoundDock Portable review

 

All you'll need is the loft-style apartment to go with this Bose

Compact, neat design ; enjoyably punchy, large-scale sound ; rechargeable battery

Some low-end blurriness ; seems a bit expensive

The usual Bose feel-good glow and (mostly) great sound too – but at a price
