Ratings & Reviews
By now it should be no surprise that the Bose sounds real good. Unlike other speakers I tested, the vocals and instruments sound By now it should be no surprise that the Bose sounds real good. Unlike other speakers I tested, the vocals and instruments sound full and alive. It can play quite loud without distortion. The original SoundDock has many reviews if you can find them.
This is the new model (Series II) of the SoundDock and, contrary to what the previous reviewer wrote, it does not run on batteries. For portability you must shell out another $100 for the model with the word "Portable" in its name. The Series II has a new slimmer profile, an input for other audio devices, and a slightly more functional remote. It now lets you switch playlists like the remote on the Portable. I'm not sure why they didn't go all the way and give the remote the ability to fully navigate the iPod menu and list system. You must still have physical access to the iPod or iPhone to select artists or albums which makes the remote a bit disappointing if you listen to music in full albums instead of via playlists.
If, like me, you care about subtle qualities in the sound or if you want to be able to play loud without distortion, by all means the Bose delivers compared to its competition. You will not get booming bass out of a speaker this size, but you will be impressed with the bass you do get.
It loses a star for the lack of full functionality in the remote and because it is expensive (like all Bose products). If you are not an especially critical listener, the Logitech Pure-Fi sounds very good for less than half the price and provides portability at no extra charge. …

Bose SoundDock Capatibility
According to Bose and many other sources, the Bose SoundDock was suppose to be 100% capable to to iTouch. After getting it shippe According to Bose and many other sources, the Bose SoundDock was suppose to be 100% capable to to iTouch. After getting it shipped, I found that the recharging feature only works for iPods and iPhones, NOT iTouch. This shortcoming is slightly implied on the Apple website, but I don't think anyone would have noticed the exclusion of iTouch for this feature since it should be obvious requirement. Sound quality is pretty good, but I'm going to return the unit since I would be running on battery power all the time. Live and learn! …

You can't blare your s I've wanted this since It came out because all of the other sounddocks I've had did not messure up to Bose. You can't blare your speakers out, but, I don't think that's the point of a Bose sounddock. You will be very shocked for how awesome it sounds considering it is so small.
I also had trouble with the remote and Bose was very nice and sent me a new one in the mail next day delivery.
I'm very happy and would recommend it my friends and family. …

Beyond Pleased & Extremely Happy
I have been shopping around for good quality sounding speakers for over 1 year. I was planning on purchasing the Bowers & Wilkins I have been shopping around for good quality sounding speakers for over 1 year. I was planning on purchasing the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speakers until I tried it with my iPod and was not so happy with the sound, in fact I was disappointed. Thought I would try the Bose SoundDock ii. I was VERY surprised with the sound in such a small casing. My iPod is one of the black models with 80g, so I needed and wanted the 30 pin dock.
I am not planning on plugging in my iPhone. My iPod never leaves the dock except for when I want to add music. I have not had any problems with theses speakers and they work quite well and fill my large room with music. LOVE the small remote control that works from over 25ft, as long as you point it in the direction of the speakers everything will work just fine.
I would buy another Bose speaker system, I also have the Bose Companion for my MacPro and they also sound great. I have no problem with the build quality. You can't please everyone, and everyone has their own opinion. I believe these speakers are a great addition to my iPod. …

Not compatible with iPhone 4 after iOS 6.1.3 Upgrade
Bose SoundDock II worked fine until I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the latest iOS (6.1.3). Now it will charge the phone but not play a Bose SoundDock II worked fine until I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the latest iOS (6.1.3). Now it will charge the phone but not play any sound. There is no way to revert back to a previous iOS so once you have upgraded the SoundDock is nothing but a glorified phone charger. It's very disappointing that neither Apple or Bose have addressed this issue yet or even indicated that they may in the future. …
