Better than Bose (and Cheaper!)

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Excellent sound, Great Looks, Simple to Use, and all at a GREAT Price

Cons:Preset volume at startup and can't turn volume way way down. iPhone not fully supported

The Bottom Line: The iGroove is an easy way to get the most out of your iPod at home or in the office.


After listening to all of the many iPod related docking systems at the Apple store my partner and I agreed that the Klipsche iGroove had the best sound of all, even better than the much pricier Bose. He got one over a year ago from Target online, and I just got one for Christmas 2006. We both have them in our offices at work.

Although I originally got mine for the office at work, I had a hard time getting it out of the house as it is so easy to use and sounds so good in any room or even outside. This stylish iGroove fills the room with incredible sound.

The tiny remote controls the iPod's volume, on/off, and can advance to the next song. The battery for the remote lasted exactly one year with daily use.

While your iPod is docked in the iGroove, it charges the iPod's battery. All in all, its out-of-the-box simple.

Slight downsides:
- when you first turn on the iGroove, it comes on at a preset volume that at the office is too loud, so I have to hold the down volume when start this up at the office.

- you can turn the iGroove volume down very low, but since it sits on my desk in front of me I wish that I could turn it down even lower, but it is limited on that.

I just saw where our local Costco started carrying the iGroove for about $125 (don't remember exactly), but that is way lower than retail and less than half than the overpriced Bose that is fixed at $300 everywhere.

iPhone
This does not work very well with an iPhone.  It does not charge it and sometimes does not play at all, sometimes gets that bluetooth buzz interference.  But I can get it to work by selecting "No" when the airplane mode prompt comes up.  Am listening to it now, still love the sound, and this is from someone with a Marantz at home with large DefTech speakers.
