I was quite excited to buy this product.
The pros are:
1. Great sound
2. It is a great speaker for my computer with the audio cable hooked up.
The cons are:
1. You need to remove your case (unless you buy a super cheap thin one (I eventually did - but it's ugly) in order to charge and play on the dock. At first, I tried a Speck flip case. However, it seemed to put pressure on the lightning dock so I didn't feel comfortable using it. And my normal Speck case was just too thick to allow the phone to play or charge. Workers of Bose, please remember that people have cases! And workers at Apple, please make an lightning extension that will allow charging and playing at the same time for this device
2. I bought an audio cable to hook in the back. This is good to play older iPhones without the lightning cable. I tried the audio jack with my iPhone 5 (hoping to not have to buy a new case) but it does not charge with the audio cable.
3. No controls on the machine. If you misplace your remote, it will be a sad day.
