    I would like to start off with saying I spent a good Month testing and trying out lots of different iPod stations to finally come I would like to start off with saying I spent a good Month testing and trying out lots of different iPod stations to finally come to this.

    I had a cheap 4gear iPod station that simply was falling appart and although for its price did sound good it wasn't really up to making any more noise.

    I went into the Apple store in High Wycombe and tried the B&W Zepplin and the bigger brother Bose of these, man the Bigger Bose whips the B&W with sound quality and volume but it also much more expensive. These sit nicely between the B&W Zepplin and the Zepplin Mini.

    After getting a few friends together and testing them all we decided for the price of these Bose Sounddocks it was a win win situation, the sound quality is top notch, you can hear a full range of sound, Bass is punchy and there when needed and not artificially created like some of the chaper logitechs etc... The Highs are not massively great but are very detailed and you can trough Heavy Metal at it and would still sound clear and detailed, if not a tad toned down when at higher volume.

    The best for me is the mids and sound quality of voice, if you play something such as DJ Sammy Heaven but the slow version with just the Voice, you could actually close your eyes and you would think she is singing in front of you. Please note you could that with any song, but that one is popular for people to relate to.

    Overall deeply impressed as the controller works from decent distances and is compatible with my iPhone 3GS all the way down to my Bro's first iPod Touch. Also the station maybe plastic but it feels very thick and strong, I doubt its going to break anytime soon.

    If your prepared to spend this sort of money on an iPod station you cannot go wrong with this station.

  • Great but a bit heavy on the bass

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Great product and really happy with it and would recommend this product. The bass can over power the sound at high volume but stil Great product and really happy with it and would recommend this product. The bass can over power the sound at high volume but still what a sound from such a small unit. Puts a lot of big sound systems to shame. Possibly slightly pricey now that other products are on the market.

    My Bose Soundock 1st generation has finally died after nearly 10 Years....
    I was worried after reading reviews that the Bose Soun My Bose Soundock 1st generation has finally died after nearly 10 Years....
    I was worried after reading reviews that the Bose Sound dock 2 wouldn't be compatable with my IPhone 4S. Or my 6 generation IPod,
    I've looked at other docking speakers.. And none of them appeal to me apart from the mega expensive ones. However I love the sound from Bose, it's excellent quality.. Better than the cheap tinny sounding speakers on the market.
    So I made the decision to try the Sound dock 2 ...hey ho, I can always return it if it doesn't work,
    Went to Apple shop and they aren't selling the sounddock 2 any more, only the 3 which is a lightening connector. So I managed to get one from Selfridges at the same price!....got home and works perfectly on both IPhone 4S. And Nano 6 generation...
    If your looking to buy one then get it now while you still can....well worth the extra money!

  • Bose SoundDock is worth the money

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    For the person who said there system only lasted 1 year, well we brought the original Bose SoundDock and it has lasted us 6 years For the person who said there system only lasted 1 year, well we brought the original Bose SoundDock and it has lasted us 6 years and only just died. Am now looking to get the SoundDock 2. They hold there price (we paid the same amount 6yrs ago!) so if we get another 6 years out of this I will be more than happy. Excellent sound. Small and neat and unobtrusive. Yes I do agree with the others that the remote is pointless, but works and does what its meant to.
