Bose SoundDock 10 Sports Bluetooth Dock, Deeper Lows

bosedockAudio gear maker Bose has unveiled the Bose SoundDock 10, an iPod-compatible one-piece speaker system that the company claims offers the sound of a much larger, pricier piece of gear thanks to newly designed large-magnet woofer and two new “Twiddler” transducers which combine the roles of tweeters and mid-range drivers.

“The SoundDock 10 system is for people who want the sound quality of a primary music system for their iPod or iPhone,” said Bose Home Entertainment VP Phil Hess, in a statement. “We started with a clean sheet and a clear goal: to deliver unparalleled audio performance without the need for complicated equipment. We then developed new technologies to deliver that performance without compromise.”

The SoundDock 10 measures 9 inches high by 17 inches wide and 10 inches deep, but incorporates a new version of Bose’s well-marketed waveguide technology folded into the enclosure, creating an acoustic sense of a much larger system. The SoundDock 10 also includes proprietary digital signal processing to “improve” audio detail and definition, and the SoundDock 10 insulates the iPod or iPhone from vibration regardless of sound level; the system is also designed to cool using convective air currents rather than fans.

The SoundDock 10 works with any click-wheel iPod, iPhone, or iPod touch. The unit also features an aux input and an interchangeable dock—an optional Bluetooth dock is available to enable users to stream music from a Bluetooth-enabled music phone or similar device. The SoundDock 10 also ships with a remote for controlling basic function, sound sources, and playlists.

The SoundDock 10 is available now for a suggested price of $599; the Bluetooth dock is priced at $149.
