"better than bose sound dock, ihome, and jbl dock"4.5 starson by sb12345
Pros: rechargeable battery!!, nifty remote with holder for it integrated in device, easy to use, clear easy-to-read screen, sfx not cheesy, has aux input and fm radio, bass impressive, mids and highs clear
Cons: specified iPod nano dock didn't work with my 2G nano because it has a hard case on it (hardly a con), doesn't have handle or included carrying case
Summary: i'm quite an audiophile and am picky about how my music sounds. the sound quality is extremely impressive. mids and highs very clear. bass is quite responsive. anything but cheesy audio enhancement sfx. highly portable. perfect for taking to parties, friends' houses, long bus rides, as it has a rechargeable battery. i would say it retains about 90% of the sound quality as top-of-the-line IM7--the IM7 just goes louder. i don't know why people are complaining about not having a headphone port--that's what your iPod headphone port is for! not having an am band isn't that important for me. compared to the bose sound dock, it's probably equally good or better for about half the price. this is a really good product.
