Pros Phenomenal rich/full sound from a one speaker unit. Right there with bowers and wilkins Can be turned into a bluetooth unit with an adapter.
Cons Pricey but you get what you pay for kids.
Summary CNET can't stand bose because they feel they are overpriced. This is one of the best sounding docks out there.. therefore, it will be priced high.
Pros The sound is amazing, nice and loud, nice and clean worth the price.
Cons My wife hates it when I turn it up, the sound is so good I can't help myself. The docking mechanism seems a little flimsy.
Summary I agonized over spending the money for it but I am glad I did. After I got it home and have had the chance to spend a lot of time listening to it it is worth every penny. The size is so convenient and the sound quality is so huge, I love it. I have only had it for a month but I hope it holds up.
Pros I love the sound on it. It is loud and sounds very clear. I only listen to Jazz so I think it is perfect for that kind of music. I know the sound is definitely processed, Bose speakers have a "Bose" sound to them. Very very clear sound.
Cons Don't like the fact that it doesn't have an LCD screen. It would hep on use with the remote. With that in mind, I really dislike that it has no buttons on the unit. So if you lose the remote, you are SOL. That is such an inconvenience.
Summary I love the sound of the product for Jazz. Sounds fantastic. In fact, I could hear things I have never really heard or payed any attention to before. I like the fact that it is not too heavy on Bass, Treble, or Mid-Range.... it does them all according to the music as far as I can tell. I tried the Beats Box by Monster and there was just way too much bass on the unit. Artificial Bass.
I don't like that it doesn't have an LCD screen to show you how far in the volume you have gone, so you don't have a consistent set of volume. Also, don't like the fact that it doesn't have physical buttons on the unit so that if you lose the remote, you can still use the unit. It would be a real inconvenience to lose the remote here. I don't mind that it doesn't have radio at all. And the battery life says 8 hours on my unit. So that's also very good.
Pros Great Sound. Portability.
Cons dont like that i hve multiple batteries and cant charge except through system. Wish they had seperate charging dock or port on battery itself. the dock connecter is a little flimsy n breaks.Speaker blew on one set also after approx 4 months.
Summary great product for portability and sound. wish they had seperate dock connecter as i have purchased 2 more batteries and i wish i could leave the ones that need charging at home while im out and charge them in a seperate charging dock. instead i must charge thru sounddock wich i think is ridiculous. also, the dock connecter itself is not very durable and is compromised over time from regular use. speakers blew on my longest had set after approx 4 months. i have been through 3 or 4 systems already because of these problems, between dock connect and speaker blowing. i am glad i purchased the 40 dollar extra warranty from best buy as i can bring it back anytime i want for up to a year. and after 1 year i get 1 more for following year. i guess ill just have to be super careful with my last one, and probaly not play it at its loudest. all in all great product but much room for advancement
Pros Great sound and battery life. Charges Ipod, smart remote.
Cons Speaker blew within four months of heavy use - for this price, should last a lifetime.
