The improved remote control system of the device can handle power, track seek, volume and playlist navigation from any part of your room. The auxiliary input allows you to play several other audio devices from your Bone SoundDock Series II including portable DVD players, CD players or MP3 players.

Great for iPhones and iPods

Knowing Bose is a high end speaker system makes the bar a little higher for them. In this case, they have met it.

Exceptional sound. Put your iPod or iPhone on the dock and turn it up; it sounds great. The speakers are curved outward slightly to allow for more dynamic stereo sound that doesn’t mix and sound muddy.

It has all the functionality you need in a speaker system. It’s very easy to use and navigate. The remote is fully functional and allows you to operate the playlists and iPod-iPhone menu.

Perfect for setting up in the house, office or bedroom, the SoundDock Series II will fit right in. it’s modern, sleek and elegant. No disappointments there.

Overall, if you buy this system you will be very satisfied. If it’s a gift, the recipient will be happy to get it. With Bose they have the brand quality and reputation that is one of the best in the industry and the SoundDock II lives up to the expectation.


Bose is known as a premium speaker brand. They only make a few systems, but the ones they make are high-end systems. They specialize in making systems that sound great and work even better. They aim for no-flaws and they usually hit it.

Can't go wrong with Bose

After lots of research I decided to go with the SoundDock II and love it. I use it with my iPhone and it works great.

The sound is nice and clear and the volume will get much louder than I will ever need it to go.  This unit is very easy to use.   Others have mentioned the construction quality is not the best.  Did not see that with my unit, very well made.   Wish the price was a little lower but what are you going to do.
