Our take on the Bose® SoundDock® Series II digital music system by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Here's an easy way to fill your room with legendary Bose® sound. Just place your iPod® or iPhone® in the SoundDock® Series II system and press "Play." The compact SoundDock® Series II system a great way to bring music to your kitchen, den, bedroom, or anywhere else in your home.
Use the SoundDock® Series II system's remote to conveniently control your iPod or iPhone from anywhere in the room. Skip songs, pause music playback, or even change playlists. An auxiliary input on the back lets you connect other types of MP3 players, as well.
I received what I expected. Bose quality! Great sound from a little package. The remote is easy to work using my I touch. In short Great Bang for your buck.

Bose® SoundDock® Series II digital music system Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Bose SoundDock II is a powered desktop speaker system designed for the Apple iPod digital music player and Apple iPhone. The iPod is docked directly to the unit, allowing you to easily play your music files.
Proprietary Acoustic Design: The system's patented Waveguide Speaker Technology and powerful neodymium speakers provide efficient and high quality audio reproduction.
iPod Dock: The SoundDock II features a slot in the front of the unit with the proprietary iPod dock connector. The SoundDock II is "Made for iPod/iPhone compatible" and supports the following iPod/iPhone model functions (as of 9/24/2014).
|Apple Device||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video Output||Remote||iPod/iPhone||Song/Artist Text||Track Information|
- *Requires the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter (sold separately) in order to dock with this system.
- **Due to its size and Lightning-connector, the iPad 4/air/mini requires the Apple Lightning to 30-pin cable (sold separately) in order to dock with this system.
- ***Even though the iPad 1/2/3 have the 30-pin connector, they are too big to seat in the speaker's integrated dock. You will need one of Cable Jive's 30-pin dock extender cables (sold separately) to connect these devices.
- The iPhone 6+ and all iPad models are too large to seat in the iPod/iPhone dock station.
- Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.
Airplane Mode (for iPhone): In the event of audio interference when you have your iPhone docked, set iPhone to Airplane Mode. You will not be able to receive phone calls in Airplane Mode.
iPod Charger: The SoundDock II provides power to charge your iPod/iPhone during operation. iPod/iPhone charging is suspended when the unit is turned off.
Controls: The only controls on the speaker system are for volume, up and down. A wireless remote control is also included which offers basic iPod controls; volume up/down, skip forward/backward, search forward/backward within the song, play/pause, Playlist select and off. The controls on the iPod also work while connected to he SoundDock II. The SoundDock II will return to the last volume setting used when turned on.
Note: The SoundDock II volume controls must be used because the iPod's volume control only affects the headphone output of your iPod when docked.
Aux Input: The SoundDock II has a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your iPod.
Using Headphones: The SoundDock II does not feature a headphone output. While docked to the system, the headphone output on your iPod can be used. Since the headphone output on the iPod is independent of the Dock connector both the SoundDock II and headphones can be used simultaneously, with independent volume control.
Power Supply: The unit is powered by the supplied AC adapter only. It does not operate on battery power. The SoundDock II provides power to charge your iPod even if the speaker system is off.
Non-Slip Feet: The bottom of the SoundDock II features six surface-gripping rubber pads to provide a stable platform on most surfaces.
