Only works for a while, not long term!
Comments about Bose® SoundDock® Series III digital music system:
I purchased this for a nice heafty price, about 1.5 years later the sound stopped working because where you dock the ipod - that part came very loose, so I had to move it around and hold it in place to work, it eventually just fell apart - the entire docking part came out. Very angry about this as it was awesome when it worked!

Sounds great, remote SUCKS
Just bought this to replace two docking speakers from other companies. Had both for years, loved them, but both have stopped working. Always wanted a Bose. Sound on this is great. Volume is better than either older system. However, the remote, which is the only way to control the system, is nowhere near as good as the other brands. My older systems would allow me to scroll through albums or artists. Apparently, the only way to maneuver on this remote is through playlists. I'm disappointed that a product the level of Bose doesn't give the control over my music that other, cheaper, products did.
Thought I was Buying a portable unit
I purchased a Bose SoundDock portable digital music system several years ago and love it. I wanted another to keep at our cabin. The one I have has a great rechargeable battery (lasts forever) or you can keep plugged in. This way, I could carry it outside and down to our dock. My current units "plug-in" section rotates inward, making transport easy. There are volume "touch" buttons on the side or you can use the remote. Never in my wildest dreams would I think that Bose would downgrade the features to what they are offering now. While the Bose sound is still awesome, I hate the unit because it is not portable-it's not what I need or want. Completely my error for not noticing before buying.
VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT
Trying to use with my IPhone 6. I've had a terrible time with the remote. Songs start and stop, start again. Sometimes won't play at all. Sound is good if you can get it to work.
Do not support Iphone 6 and many other apps.
To me, Bose name is enough and I wanted this product for long which fits my living room. I bought this product before Iphone 6 was launched. I went to bose Store, heard the sound and bought it. Though Apple IPod 6th Gen and Apple Iphone 6 has same inputs for docking still IPhone 6 do not play on this docking system. Also, it only supports Itunes and don't support supports apps like Pandora, iHeart Radio etc..

Downgrade from past models
Had the sound dock 2 for a few years and absolutely loved/love it. Just got the 3 for Christmas and am disappointed. There is no more battery to make it portable and you have to find the remote to turn up or down the volume, unlike last model with the integrated buttons. This model seems like a step back to me

i like what I read ?....?...
I take that back I've had bowls for a while I respect this product
Set to Return
No very handy because you have to take your iPhone out of the case for it to fit properly on the connection. Can't use it.
IDEAL for Dance Groups!
By Heritage Musick
This system has proven to be the IDEAL method for providing music to the 2 dance groups which I belong to and perform with. A huge 'plus' is that it doesn't need to be tethered to an electrical outlet when it is fully charged. Some of our venues are senior/retirement facilities and this little box has the VOLUME needed for those people with hearing problems. The remote works very well. I have also used the jack in the back with a microphone - just remember to remove the iPod as the system overrides the jack in favor of the dock. My Soundwave is about 5 years old. Portable. Dependable. Great Sound. A+++++
Love this Dock!!!
I purchased the very first SoundDock that come out I believe it was 2006ish for my iPod Classic and I actually still have it which still sounds great. I've since purchased the new one and it's just as great it not better then the first one I got. I love it!
