Top Customer Reviews
The dock is sleek looking with with its stylish black and chrome look. The small LCD display is only a single line and could be improved by being maybe a line or two bigger but overall, at a glance I was impressed.
The initial set up was relatively simple once I had gotten the hang of the remote control. The remote is tiny and there is a delay of several seconds between pressing a button and the dock responding. This took a bit of getting used to as I tend to get a bit click-happy when there isn't an immediate response.
When I first connected my ipod the ipod froze and it was about 2 terrifying minutes before it began to work again. This appeared to be an initial blip as it hasn't done this again since. The actual dock part where the ipod sits seems a bit precarious and it took me several attempts to get the ipod to fit snuggly but once in, it seems pretty secure.
It took 30 seconds to connect the dock to my wireless network and was much simpler than I had expected especially as I'm a bit of a novice with these things. Setting up the radio was also very simple.
The sound quality from the speakers is surprisingly good. There are seven EQ settings; off, rock, pop, bass, jazz, acoustic and classical so you can change it to your personal preference.
Overall this is a nice little system. A couple more LCD display lines and maybe a clock and this would be a lovely little docking station. I'm very impressed with it.
Would not recomment this product.
In short, it flatters to deceive. Looks good but the Airplay connectivity is patchy - often not showing up on my various devices. To overcome you have to switch the Gear4 off then on; if this fails, need to hard switch off your Apple device (hold power button down and swipe the switch off arrow message).
Occasionally, Gear4 fails to detect the iPad / iPhone in docking on the physical connector/charger point. Again have to try the switch on / off routine.
The remote control is a joke - but it is good for exercise. After frequent button pushes with no effect, you get up and walk across the room, waving the thing around trying to find the best point for the sensor to detect. This is not helped by the long delay between button press and system response!
The 6 position EQ setting (push button to cycle though choices) didn't seem to create much difference in audio output.
The Gear4 is quite heavy and not designed for easy portability (in any case is mains only) - but not shaped for easy pick up / doesn't include easy hand hold moulding.
I understand the impact on design and cost but in an ideal version would like the physical dock to include a swivel to allow landscape viewing. As an Airplay unit you can, of course, view your iPad remotely.
The Gear4, when the Airplay works does perform well and does what I want. Also gives me an additional charging point with reasonable sound quality (given limitations of iTunes audio to start with).
On balance worth buying at half the price.
It's a silver and black curved shape with a red rubber base to stop it dancing around to whatever it's throwing out, but is rather ugly looking. The LCD display is in the middle. Prominent on top is a rotary volume control, which moves up in increments of five, with three push buttons either side. Skip forwards/backwards keys, standby, mode and an EQ button join the obvious play/pause. Round the back is the on/off switch, an aux socket and a strange cut-out that has no discernible function. (It can't be for carrying it, surely?) Oh, there's also a 'Wi-Fi' aerial. Yes, you can stream music to this unit from a computer. Not only that, there's also an FM radio with ten stations available to memorise.
The `Wi-Fi' is easy enough to set up, and you need only do this once, then you can listen to songs from your computer through the unit. The question is, would you really want to do this? I mean, if you have a library of songs on your PC/Mac, wouldn't they also be on your iPod? It does seem rather pointless.
However, that's all very well and good but the acid test in anything like this is what it sounds like. (That is why you bought it, after all.) Without knowing the output, it certainly packs a punch and the equaliser has seven individual settings; rock, pop, bass, jazz, acoustic, classical, and off.Read more ›
