Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Arrived quick worked perfect on Bose Sounddock. Only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is i felt the sound quality might be better but that could also be the fault of my phone or the streaming app. i'm using. Well worth the investment.

Pros: Speedy delivery. Works great right out of the box. Good price.

Cons: None yet.

Works great!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Popped it into my Bose portable docking system and it worked like a charm. Great to be using the dock again and not borrow my teenagers Bluetooth speaker. Simple and sounds great. No issues.

I hadn't been able to use my Bose Sound Dock for a while because of all of the upgrades to my phone. I thought I would have to buy a new Bose system until I found this little gem! Works perfectly!

Bluetooth for your Bose Sounddock!

Written by: Roadster from Sandwich, MA on November 3, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was given a Bose sound dock a few years back which worked wonderfully with the previous generation IPhone and IPod. Disappointed to not be able to connect with the newer editions. Finally lost the input jack and wire and purchased this wonderful adapter. It hooked up in seconds, and now we can enjoy our Bose Product once again. Great service and fast delivery from Crutchfield!

Pros: Quick and easy operation.

Cons: Sometimes cuts in and out as do most Bluetooth connections. If your phone is on, your conversation is connected to Bluetooth!

Didn't work with my iHome

Written by: David from Cincinnati, OH on October 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not going to ding the device too much since had it worked with my devices it would have been very cool. Unfortunately it did not work consistently with either of the devices for which I made the purchase. If it works for you, I am sure it provides great flexibility. Simply not functional with enough devices for me.

Pros: Small, seems very simple

Cons: Did not work with the devices I own

30-Pin Bluetooth Adapter: The Cable Jive dockBoss air turns your 30-pin iPod dock system into a wireless Bluetooth audio system. The dockBoss air features a 30-pin connector which plugs into your iPod system's 30-pin dock and features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming.
