A compact performer

On the outside the SoundDock XT speaker features a unique visual appearance. On the inside Bose® digital signal processing and acoustic design produce the kind of full sound you'd expect from a larger, more expensive system.

The integrated dock gives the speaker a small footprint, so it takes up minimal space. And it's lightweight, so you can easily move it from one spot to another. Choose from White/Dark Gray or White/Yellow to suit your style.

Playtime is any time

You can enjoy hours of uninterrupted music from your iPhone or iPod. The SoundDock XT speaker charges your device whenever it's docked and plugged into a wall outlet, even while your songs are playing.

The system features volume control buttons—and you control all other functions from your device.

Add to your entertainment

A 3.5mm auxiliary port lets you connect other devices, such as a tablet, laptop, CD player or other mobile device, to get the most from all of your music.

Works with the newest iPod and iPhone models

This system is compatible with iPod and iPhone models with an Apple Lightning connector (eight-pin connector), introduced in 2012 or later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality/Value I admit I am a Bose fan with over a half dozen products, so it wasn't a hard decision when my wife and I wanted to add some more sound to one of our rooms. I already have the SoundDock II, and with the Apple 30-pin to Lightning adapter, that old SoundDock II now plays my latest generation iPod with the 9.2.1 OS...and it charges it. But in some ways I like the XT even more. Why? First, it is around $100 less. Second, the sound is high quality but not being a big bass fan, I found this has less bass than the SoundDock II, probably because it may have smaller speakers. I never like battery-run devices when an electric one is available, so like the SoundDock II this XT runs right from the wall...no batteries to worry about charging or replacing. Plus, this is a very portable unit...it is lightweight and you can simply pick it up and move it. Also, I never use my remote too much on my SoundDock II, so just having simple volume up and down buttons on the XT is fine with me. With the SoundDock III, there are no buttons, so if you lose your remote, you cannot adjust volume on that model. Of course, if a person likes bass or treble more, you can adjust that on this SoundDock, like other SoundDocks, by simply adjusting the EQ in your iTunes library or device. Finally, some people say they can't fit this on with their case. Well, when your iPod or iPhone is in the dock, it doesn't need protecting, so I use it as it is supposed to be used, without the case. I also find it is easier for me to control the device operations without a protective case. All in all, an excellent product at a fair price...with solid Bose sound. I'm quite happy with the XT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy yellow colour Sound is great for the device of such size. It is perfect for a small room. I bought it to replace micro JBL that was almost 5 years old and I had to use an adapter from 30-pin to lightning connection. Together with iPod it serves as a bed-side-music/radio/alarm-station. I live outside of my home country, so having it set like that gives me a feeling of home/base in my rented apartment.
