  • More Info

    The Bose SoundDock digital music system was specifically designed to expand and enhance your enjoyment of the music stored on your iPod or iPod mini. Just plug it in, pop in your iPod and play. You'll appreciate the rich, full sound you'll get from this relatively small enclosure.

    Controlling the SoundDock is simple. Use your iPod controls or the volume buttons on the docking station. The credit card-sized remote will also take command of the system volume as well as basic iPod functions from almost anywhere in the room.

    The SoundDock's speaker drivers are shielded, which limits the possibility of video interference if it is placed near a computer or video screen. The Bose SoundDock System for iPod is also available in white. Protect your SoundDock when you're traveling with the Bose SoundDock Travel Case

    "While people predominately use their iPods at the gym or on their commutes, many want to bring their iPods into the house to enjoy them beyond the earphones. The market has exploded with a plethora of small form factor iPod-dedicated speakers. While any decent pair of 2.1 home computer speakers or shelf system will sound better than any iPod speaker, the true beauty of these speakers is their small size and self-enclosed design that makes them flexible enough to be moved and used in any room in house. Long known for sound quality, Bose was one of the first to enter the iPod speaker market with its SoundDock Digital Music System." Read more...

    There may be many speakers for the iPod but there's only one Bose. If you want the best sound, buy the Bose Sounddock.
