Why did I buy this product?
Recommend this product?
I've always wanted a dock for my iPod that would charge it and play music, and this turned out to be the perfect thing for me. I have the iPod 3rd generation, and it works perfectly with the Bose SoundDock Digital Music System.
What features does it have?
It charges it while playing music from the speakers. I even discovered it charges and plays music on iPhones too! It works for all Apple iPods EXCEPT iPod shuffles. The sound is such high quality and streams so clear. There has never been a time when the sound was poor, or the bass sounded bad. The remote that comes with it makes things a lot easier because you can control the volume, change the song, pause it, play it, switch playlists, and turn off the ipod from anywhere in the room.
This SoundDock is simple. It has a black base with silver speakers. It goes great in any room, and it's easy to dust and keep clean. It doesn't take up a lot of space, and it's a nice size for a desk, dresser, and even a nightstand!
How much was it?
I've heard about iHome and all of the great features of it, but I wasn't looking for a clock, radio, and alarm; just a simple dock that plays music and charges my iPod. I ordered this from Amazon.com, and it cost $241.88.
Great news! There isn't one. This SoundDock came fully assembled out of the box. All that you need to do is plug it in. The only buttons on the actual dock are the volume buttons on each side of the iPod plug.
Ways to maximize your Bose experience
My iPod stays on there all the time, and I never have problems with it when I take it off to use it. You can also play the radio from your iPod on the bose, and it sounds great. You can set an alarm on your iPod and put it on the bose, and your alarm will play on speaker so that you'll surely wake up. This speaker was one of the best investments I've made. After 3 years of having it, it's still up and running perfectly.
