    As The Dockpocalypse Nears, Bluetooth-Enabled iPhone Substitutes Abound

    Next week, Apple is expected to announce a new iPhone complete with a new dock connector, finally putting to bed the 30-pin design that's been in use since time immemorial (so long as you can't remember past nine years ago, like me). Rumors are that Apple will market an adapter, but there's no telling whether that will work with all models and makes of existing iPhone audio docks, so companies… Read More

  • Koostik Wood iPod "Dock" Amplifies Sound The Old Fashioned Way

    Koostik Wood iPod "Dock" Amplifies Sound The Old Fashioned Way

    This probably isn't up your alley if you're into listening to really awesome, fairly loud music all the time, but if you rely on your iPod or iPhone and don't need a lot of volume, the Koostik might be your style. It's based on similar principles as acoustic guitars and other wood instruments: sound is channeled from where it is emitted from the phone to those big holes there, where it comes out… Read More

  • Altec Lansing's Octiv Mini iPod dock actually looks quite cool

    Altec Lansing's Octiv Mini iPod dock actually looks quite cool

    As I often point out when posting new iPod docks and other incredibly common devices, it's hard to set yourself apart from the rest, even when you're an established brand. Buyers will feel no compunction over saving $10 and getting another device that looks just like yours — it sucks, but hey, image is everything. So I'm pleased to recommend this Altec Lansing dock on appearance alone. Read More

  • Of course there's a leather couch with an iPod dock

    Of course there's a leather couch with an iPod dock

    iPod docks are in everything these days, but this leather sectional from Natuzzi actually makes a bit of sense. Think about it. You and yours are chillaxing on the couch after a hard day working for the man. You want nothing more than some relaxing tunes from the Manilow, but the music is stuck on your iPhone and the dock is all the way on the other side of the room. But no worries, you have the… Read More

  • JBL makes slight changes to iPod dock lineup

    JBL makes slight changes to iPod dock lineup

    When you’ve been making iPod and iPhone docks since the beginning, what is there to do but tweak the design every once in a while? That’s JBL’s situation, and these “new” docks are pretty much what you had before, but no one would choose the old ones over the new ones. “Greater versatility and compatibility” is their way of saying “it ain’t… Read More

  • Electrolux, vacuums do not need iPod docks, m'kay?

    Electrolux, vacuums do not need iPod docks, m'kay?

    Listen, I know you did this fancy-pants study that concluded people vacuum more efficiently when they are listening to music. And I also understand that you want to market the new quiet UltraSilencer vacuum, but for the love of pete, don't sink to the iPod dock level. Read More

  • Review: Chinon AVi iPod dock with built-in digital TV tuner

    Review: Chinon AVi iPod dock with built-in digital TV tuner

    Short Version: There’s a whole lot of convergence going on with the $200 Chinon AVi. You’ve got an iPod dock, 7-inch digital TV that doubles as an iPod video screen, music player, FM radio, and alarm clock all contained within something the size of a toaster. As with all heavily converged devices there’s the risk of being a jack-of-all trades, but master of none. Does… Read More

  • Video Review: Vestalife Butterfly Dock for iPod

    Video Review: Vestalife Butterfly Dock for iPod

    The Vestalife Butterfly is an $80 iPod dock with no remote control and so-so sound quality. The build quality is okay, but the whole getup looks like it should be hanging over a baby’s crib. If it cost $30 or $40 it’d be a whole different story, but at $80 this one’s truly for butterfly enthusiasts and family members of Vestalife employees only. Read More

  • Spain's Marca shows off Real Madrid stadium iPod dock

    Spain's Marca shows off Real Madrid stadium iPod dock

    If it were socially acceptable to roll on the floor laughing while in public I'd be doing just that right now. Spain's Real Madrid, el campeón actual español, has licensed an iPod dock-like device that's shaped like the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. Nearest I can tell, the device performs the same functions that similar devices has performed since time immemorial. But because it's Real Madrid… Read More

  • Hannah Montana clock radio and iPod dock reviewed

    Hannah Montana clock radio and iPod dock reviewed

    Attention Miley Cyrus fans who frequent CrunchGear.com (and for some reason, there are quite a few), there’s a review of the hot, hot, hot Hannah Montana clock radio and iPod dock over on the San Jose Mercury News website. The review was done by Mattie Keith, age 13, and I think we can all agree that Mattie gave each and every one of us CrunchGear writers a run for our money. Mattie finds… Read More

  • Griffin Amplifi Review

    Griffin Amplifi Review

    Griffin’s latest iPod speaker, the Amplifi, is about as simple as they come, and the price tag won’t leave you wishing you hadn’t just bought that $4 Starbuck’s cafe mocha. The sound is a lot better than you’d expect for a $150 speaker and can fill a 15 by 15 foot living room with little problem. The included infrared remote doesn’t give you total control over… Read More

  • Denon's New WiFi Dock for iPods 'n More

    Denon's New WiFi Dock for iPods 'n More

    Amid a slew of new releases yesterday at the Hyatt in Jersey City, Denon introduced a WiFi iPod dock, the ASD-3W. It looks like a hockey puck with a dock and an antenna, but it’s much more: It actually lets you network most AV components like receivers, TVs, and some speakers, whether they’re from Denon or not. It lets you stream music, photos, and that precious but beleaguered… Read More

  • DLO's HomeDock Music Remote Review

    DLO's HomeDock Music Remote Review

    When I initially saw the DLO HomeDock Music Remote ($130), I had high expectations based on the company’s earlier success with iPod docks. This one comes with a fancy remote that lets you browse and control your iPod on a tiny LED screen. The effect is kind of like carrying around a smaller and less functional version of your iPod to control the real thing, which charges and plays music… Read More

    iSoundSpa iPod Dock: Wake Up to Sounds of the Ocean

    iSoundSpa represents the next evolution of iPod docks, that is, the unholy combination of an iPod dock and an alarm clock. Yes, it will charge your iPod while it’s plugged in. Yes, it has a built-in radio. No, it won’t dismantle the Taliban. It does, however, have six “soothing” nature songs that you can wake yourself up to, including “ocean” and… Read More

  • George: An Intelligent iPod Speaker Dock

    We wrote about Chestnut Hill Sound’s George iPod speaker dock back at the beginning of the month. Our review unit arrived today, so we decided to pop the box open and take some shots. There are a handful of features that separate George from the rest of the speaker-dock herd. Click below to see more pictures and learn about what makes this system so different. Read More
