Sound dock station is great
I bought my dock station several years ago. SN: 049867913480966AE I used it with my iPHONE 4S Now I have an iPhone 6 and I can't use it. My dock station doesn't have an auxiliary input. Do you have any kind of adapter compatible with my iPhone 6 that I can use? I'll appreciate any suggestions.

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.

Great sound, iPhone won't dock with cover on
Having been impressed with the Bose sound system in my car, I decided to pay a bit extra for a Bose docking station for my iPhone 5C in my bedroom. Sound quality is very good & rich, remote control is very basic & I end up having to search manually on iTunes or when switching between radio app & iTunes. My phone won't dock with its thin silicone case on, so it's a bit of a faff having to remove it & remembering to put it back on when I'm rushing out of the door.

Bose to the Rescue
Some time ago I gave my son my bose sound dock as a gift. I then traveled to Texas to attend a mutual friend's wedding. The wedding was in an old building. When the DJ arrived with his gigantum speakers, they blew out along with some ceiling lights; the electrical connection apparently was too antiquated to handle the mega speakers and equipment. Bose to the rescue! My son ran home and got the Bose and it saved the day. The filtered the sound through the Bose with fabulous results. No one felt the difference. The strength and quality of the Bose speaker and sound saved the day and everyone got to enjoy the music. I am in the process of buying a bose to replace the one I gave my son.

Great Bose sound on the go or at home
I have a few Bose products and must say this has been a great buy. I first had it set up in the house and had it playing on my old ipod and the new iphone6. The sound was really good for the inside BUT for outside use it is great. Used it by the pool and have taken on two family outings the the park. The sound was clear and it will get loud. Buy an extra battery it came in handy at the park. Enjoy!

IDEAL for Dance Groups!
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+++++
