Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounddock I don't get the negative reviews. Had mine going on 5 years and still works great. My sound dock took a lot of abuse initially; at home, in the office and even camping. Parts are expensive though, this is why I rated a 4-star. The connection to the back of the dock has a very thin wire in the center that finally broke off. Purchased a new one on-line for about $60 about 2 years ago. I still use it sometimes and YES STILL WORKS!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I am a Bose fan. I own Bose computer speakers and headphones and love them both. I purchased the soundDock III for my office and the sound is not what I'm accustomed to from Bose products. I do not feel this item is worth the price. The sound is average. Unfortunately, when I went to the store to purchase the item, the Bose unit was not connected to be tested, so I made the purchase based on my previous experiences with Bose products. I recommend that you test this unit before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful It sounds great. I got this model even though I have an older ipod, thinking eventually I'll upgrade. In the meantime, I purchased the bose bluetooth adapter. Works so well I may not bother upgrading my ipod after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I really don't get the negative reviews. The unit is exactly what I expected. Well made, great sound, beautiful looking unit and awesome sound. Why would anyone expect this to work with the phone case on. If that's really so important, get a cable. True, Apple does not make it but you can get an aftermarket product that does. As far as portability goes, I didn't buy this to be portable. I have a sound-link and a sound-link mini for that. I bought this for a docking, sound, charging option for my office. The unit is well made and I really see no problems with the remote. I guess they could have put controls on the unit but it is only $250.00. For Bose quality and sound, that's a fair price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Confused why there are so many negative ratings. I have never had a problem w- my sound dock. Listen to Pandora all the time plus iTunes. Great sound. Yes, you have to plug it in, but who cares? Worth the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrated I'm a big Bose fan - but am frustrated with this product. Instructions in the box and on-line are minimal. No explanation of the remote button functions. Remote doesn't seem to work correctly with my iphone 6. Can't get it to change songs, select, etc. Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased. I relied on the name.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Loved it while it was working. It will charge my iPod, but not play music anymore. For the price, I expected it to last longer. Will go with a cheaper brand next time.
