  • CAUTION: Not compatible with iPhone alarm!!

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    I was very disappointed after purchasing the DS1155 to find out that it does not work with the native alarm on the iPhone 5. It en I was very disappointed after purchasing the DS1155 to find out that it does not work with the native alarm on the iPhone 5. It ends up playing both out of the iPhone 5 speakers and the dock and as there is a delay between the 2 you get this weird delayed crazy sound. The other outcome is no sound at all.

    Philips knows about it too. You can see for yourself if you Google "ds1155 alarm audio comes out of both iphone speakers and dock speakers but desynced"

    The non-compatibility issue should be mentioned in the product description on apple.com.

    Otherwise, it does do a good of being a phone charger with a clock.

The volume from the speaker is always really nice, goes surprising loud and had a quality much better than some of the other cheaper docking systems that I have used in the past. The USB port in the back is a perfect addition as it allows me to charge my older 30 pin dock iPod whilst having my iPhone 5 in the dock itself charging them both (sometimes i charge my camera through the USB too). As for all this talk of alarms not working, they work fine for my iPhone, both the timer and alarms from the stock clock app play through the speaker just fine (as well as ring tones and other notifications). The main downfall of the dock is the clock it is far to dim to be seen in the day during a sunny day and there is no way to increase or dim its brightness. The LED light halo makes for a nice novelty as it is far to dim to use as a bed side light and often only stays on for a minute or two at most (though this can be dimmed). Missing an AUX input is disappointing and no bluetooth or radio capabilities does limit the device to straight lightning devices but its not too pricey so I can't expect it to have everything. Over all this is a nice dock for charging your phone of a night and having a louder alarm for when the volume of the iPhone speaker doesn't quite wake you up.

  • Phillips DOck Studio App pretty useful

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Allows you to set alarms within the dockstudio app. Also has a sleep timer, display location weather. Can fit phone while in case Allows you to set alarms within the dockstudio app. Also has a sleep timer, display location weather. Can fit phone while in case on the dock. Dock has a nice LED glow/night light adjustable brightness halo under base of station. App displays weather and either digital or analog clock (can also dim display brightness within the app)/ Can play audio from ipod music library, the 'tunein' radio fucntion from phillips app does not work as there is no radio tuner built into the dock. Weather is from accuweather.com.

    Audio is decent, but the audo from the JBL one is a bit louder and crisper. Gets pretty decently loud, do not play at top volume unless you want to mess up the speaker!

    Dock has buttons built into the wood for volume and halo brightness.
    Handsome little device, obviously has a digital clock built into the base which syncs with the devices timer.
    Has a built in extra usb port for charging an extra device (does not play music over the usb).
    Ringer and iOS alarm play through the speakers.
    Phillips dockstudio alarms obviously play through the speaker.

    The reason I swapped the JBL one for the phillips (only two docks so far with lightning docks) is that the JBL would auto turn off to save power so after an hour the phone did not push any audio to the speakers.

    Phillips works well for any lightning ipod or iphone, would likely work with an ipad.
    The built in lightning adapter is adjustable and swivels front and back.
    THere is a handsome glass support also built into the dock.

    All in all a good product for fucntion. If you want to simply play music as loud as possible at the best quality get the JBL one micro (extra $10). If you want function get this dock.

    Both docks are pretty sleek and modern looking.

    2. Set up is not simple;
    3. I have had to set it up three times and each time it will work correctly for less than three days then it reverts to delivering only a tinny non speaker assisted sound for my alarm.

    This is truly my only complaint, but since I brought it to use as an alarm clock, I am greatly disappointed.

    I will attempt set up one more time before I consign it to Useless Items Hades!

    This dock does NOT work with ANY iPhone or iPod cases, which makes it not very convenient. If you don't want to remove your case e This dock does NOT work with ANY iPhone or iPod cases, which makes it not very convenient. If you don't want to remove your case each time, you need to plug into the back of the unit using standard lightning-to-USB cord, which sort of defeats the whole purpose--I have plenty of other audio devices I can plug the iPod into the back using Audio-in port, but I wanted a charging dock on my nightstand that was an alarm clock and played top quality audio (this unit does have excellent sound quality for such a small speaker). Back to my search...

    I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He works in an office by himself with an old school desktop to keep him company. He ha I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He works in an office by himself with an old school desktop to keep him company. He has the iPhone 5 but never really listened to podcasts or anything which is something I do to get me through my day. This little speaker is very nice; it's compact and the wood tone & black makes it sleek enough to fit in his professional environment. He also wanted to be able to charge his phone while at work without having to remember to bring a cord home or shelling out $30 for a new one so this was a two-in-one purchase. Unfortunately he has to remove the phone case to use the adapter but other than that, this was a great buy!
