The sound is clear, and strong. I'll be using these speakers when I travel. (I also downloaded the app that goes with these speakers. Now I have an alarm clock to wake up with my music choices.)
I was looking for a low-priced iPod dock for my bedroom. The XtremeMac Soma Stand gets fairly loud and puts out decent sound for the price. One should not expect outstanding frequency range for a product priced as low as $20, but considering the price and my own intended use, it's a good buy. It also gets fairly loud, which will serve relatively well in an outdoor setting.
With Rakuten points, I got this speaker for $10 shipped.
I wanted a small dock/speaker for my 4S to place on nightstand. Had previously had the small round Lansing Orbit and for a single tiny speaker the sound was really impressive. So, with this being a dual speaker I expected a lot more from this one. I have pretty thin faux CF leather cover and was disappointed that it won't dock with cover on. So those speaking about ability to dock with case on must be talking about covers that are more color changers than actual covers. I like how it folds flat, and the buttons are in a great location. Also being both AC and battery powered a plus. But volume is disappointing as it is maybe as loud as the tiny Lansing Orbit, but doesn't have near the sound quality, which is very disappointing since a dual speaker system.
But for listening to ambiance music while going to sleep, it works fine for that. Will try out on my boat, but have to imagine if sound so weak in a room, in the outdoors I'm probably due for another disappointment.
But for what I paid, I'd buy again. Just don't pay $20 or more. The Lansing Orbit sounds as good or better, has more volume, AND, is 1/4 the size.
I purchased this Ipod speaker dock for my teenage son's birthday so that he could project his music and he was very pleased with this. The sound quality is great. It was easy to set up and begin using. I would definitly recommend this.
I am very pleased with this speaker/charger/cradle. The sound is very crisp and clear.
I downloaded the alarm clock app and found it to be simple and useful. My only complaint is with myself for not having bought 2 at this great price.
