Bose SoundDock 10 review

£549 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Bose

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

An iPod dock with no on-board controls, the Bose SoundDock 10 combines minimal styling with a neat remote.

Bose has built a reputation for quality audio devices based on clever marketing, and the Bose SoundDock 10 is no exception. An iPod dock with no on-board controls, this device combines minimal styling with a neat remote, and certainly has the wow factor when it comes to lifestyle accessories.

Impressive in size and weight, the Bose SoundDock 10 dock does a good job of being both seen and heard. A Bluetooth dock gives users the option to stream music wirelessly, with memory to store six devices, although this will set you back an additional £129.

While the Bose SoundDock 10 can certainly fill a room, we were a little disappointed by the overall sound. Initially impressive, it lacks that special something to justify the hype and price tag promised. We also found navigating iPod playlists via the remote to be less responsive then we’d like, which can lead to some frustrating listening.

  • Overall: We give this item 7 of 10 overall

The Bose SoundDock 10 is a classy-looking accessory that offers distortion-free playback. For the price, sound isn’t exceptional, but bear in mind that it can be found much cheaper online. However, we don't particularly like the lack of controls on the dock - navigation isn’t perfect.
