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 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 d, 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! …

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 s peakers 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. …

Annoying volume reset feature
I find the sound quality of this unit to be quite good but the thing Im finding annoying is that whenever I stop using it for more than 20 minutes the volume automatically resets itself to 0. I have my Airport Express connected to the Auxiliary port in the back to play music wirelessly using Airplay and any time I connect to the Sounddock I have to find the remote to turn the volume up. Its quite frustrating as I purchased this unit mainly to play music through Airplay and I would like to keep the volume on the speakers at something louder than it currently sets itself to every time. …

Erin, I bought the Sound Dock II and the 30 pin lightning connector and my nano worked fine for a sh ort while. When it quit working I went to return the dock and it was the lightning pin that was defective. However, I was told that because the nano has bluetooth that a Bose with bluetooth would be better so we bought the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II and it works great. And no pin needed! Hope this helps. Irma …
