Product Description

Product Description

About Bose

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since then, Bose engineers have focused on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the SoundDock Series III digital music system.

About The Product

Created for performance. Created for the latest versions of iPhones and iPods.

The SoundDock Series III digital music system allows users to play their digital music from any iPhone or iPod model with the latest Apple Lightning connector, and experience it with the Bose standard of high quality sound.

Big on sound, small on size

The system’s size doesn’t tell the whole story. Inside its compact frame you’ll find Bose digital signal processing and acoustic design that produce wide-ranging sound, with consistency and clarity—all from a compact system small enough to carry from place to place, effortlessly.

The party doesn’t have to stop

Music continues uninterrupted from your iPhone or iPod whenever it’s docked and when the SoundDock system is plugged into a wall outlet. The system charges your device, even while your songs are playing.

Control is in your hands

The SoundDock III comes with a convenient remote that turns the system on and off, adjusts volume, changes tracks and navigates your playlists.

Not just for iPhones

Hear all the sound you’ve been missing by simply connecting your DVD/CD player, tablet, laptop or other mobile device to the 3.5mm auxiliary input.

Compatible with the latest iPhone and iPod models

This system works with iPhone and iPod versions equipped with an Apple Lightning connector.

Now available in an assortment of colours

The SoundDock Series III system – Limited Edition Colour Collection offers you a choice of attention-grabbing colours: green, orange, purple or blue in addition to standard black. Great for gifts or filling your own living space with Bose sound—and a splash of colour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bose SoundDock Series III 30 Dec 2013
Style Name:Lightning Connector| Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Would recommend this to anyone - sound is superb. Unfortunately in my particular circumstances, I chose the wrong product as I really needed the Series II. If you have an old style I-Pod, this item will not work, as it is designed for the more up to date technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Quality 25 Aug 2011
By Tarcon
Style Name:30-pin| Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The Bose SoundDock II system has the most amazing sound. Bose really know how to let you here every detail in a piece of music. There are not any controls on the unit other than volume. You do not need to tweek any trebles or bass as the sound is just amazing. I would throughly recommend this product. I wish I had purchased it sooner!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bose soundDock problem 18 Jan 2012
By Jane
Style Name:30-pin|Colour Name:Black
I bought this product just over two years ago. It has recently stopped producing any sound when the iPod is inserted. I have done some research online and it seems that this problem is not uncommon. The repair costs £75 and is only guaranteed for a further 12 months. Bose admit that the connector pins are a weak link and advised me only to use the remote to control iPod when it is in the docking station. Bose has always meant "quality" to me but this item is simply not up to the job.Bose® SoundDock® digital music system (Gloss Black)

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Build Quality 3 Dec 2012
By MaR1lyn
Style Name:30-pin|Colour Name:Black
Whilst delivering great sound the build quality of this device is unbelievably poor for the price. I was prepared to overlook the fact that the docking section seems to be connected to the speaker section by little more than a prayer until the device malfunctioned giving no response from remote or buttons.
After a £70 (all in) repair the device went on the fritz again three days later. I would not recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome - lives up to the hype 2 Jan 2012
Style Name:30-pin|Colour Name:Black
Worth every penny.
No iPhone signal interference. AUX port useful for porting in audio from other devices.
Clear, precise, crisp should through top, mid and low ranges.
The best on the market at this price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor and cheap connector for IPOD 20 Nov 2011
By DAVID
Style Name:30-pin|Colour Name:Black
I have had this unit for two years and the sound is great but the cradle where the Ipod sits is cheap and nasty rubbish! It is so bad that the cradle does not support the weight of the Classic 160gb and the result was that the connector separated from the unit. It is an obvious fault that happens so often that you can buy the front connector for about 40 quid but why should you have to?

Bose if you read this get it sorted as your image is badly tarnished by this defect!

4.0 out of 5 stars get real 28 Dec 2011
Style Name:30-pin|Colour Name:Silver
I bought a Bose sound link wireless speaker and was not impressed, but probably expected too much from a wireless unit, purchased this soundock from Curry's (sorry amazon) and have been over the moon with the performance, as a musician I have an ear for good sound, and for £200.00 this is well worth the money, in the kitchen, cooking and enjoying sounds that I never heard before on my sony, if you think it cost's too much, pay the extra, it's well worth it, in my opinion, best on the market for the price!!!!!!!!
