Product Description

Let your ears be the judge. From pumping bass to bright treble, iPod Hi-Fi delivers natural, room-filling sound. Close your eyes and you'd think you were listening to an amazing component system. Open them and you realize all that great sound is coming from a relatively small and portable box. Use it at home or at a picnic because iPod HiFi works either from household AC current or batteries. Apple designed it to be the ultimate in iPod friendliness. The dock has adapters to fit all dockable iPods. Then there's a mini plug for non-dockable models such as the shuffle. Use the included Apple Remote to control music playback from anywhere in a room. iPod Hi-Fi combines power and volume with acoustic clarity to produce clean, clear sound with very little distortion, even at high volume. Ultimately, like all iPods, there's are high levels of integrity and quality that reach out to people of all tastes and backgrounds. HiFi is a state of outstanding sound that you can listen and share. iPod represents easy use and world-class performance. Put them together and you've transcended to a new reality. And it's portable so you can take it with you. Make your life HiFi. Two 80-mm wide-range speakers and One 130-mm bass driver Unit Dimensions - Height - 6.6 inches (167.6 mm) x Width - 17.0 inches (431.8 mm) x Depth (including grille) - 6.9 inches (175.3 mm) / Unit Weight (without batteries) - 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg) / Weight (with batteries) - 16.7 pounds (7.6 kg)

Fill your home with sound, not stereo components. Keep your music collection at your fingertips, not in countless CD cases. Change the way you experience digital music. iPod Hi-Fi delivers crystal-clear, audiophile-quality sound in a clean, compact design. Hear, hear.

Where did the stereo go?
Just slide your iPod(1) into the built-in Universal Dock to turn on and tune in to digital music as you've never heard it before. From pumping bass to bright treble, iPod Hi-Fi delivers natural, room-filling sound. Close your eyes and you'd think you were listening to a huge stack of speakers. But iPod Hi-Fi measures just 17.0" x 6.6" x 6.9."

Virtuoso performance
As versatile as it is compact, iPod Hi-Fi incorporates thoughtful touches that make playing your music pure pleasure. Use the included Apple Remote to control music playback from anywhere in the room. Charge your iPod through the iPod Hi-Fi dock while you play music. Or take your show on the road courtesy of D-cell battery(2) power. All that makes iPod Hi-Fi pretty extraordinary. Just like iPod.

Rock-solid enclosure
The innovative design of iPod Hi-Fi transforms consumer-grade materials into the ideal enclosure for high-fidelity sound. The high-end sound of iPod Hi-Fi pours out of a double-walled plastic shell redesigned for maximum stiffness to prevent vibration and resonance--two major causes of sonic imperfection. And airtight sealing allows voluminous, unobstructed sound, effectively preventing buzzing and clatter.

The right balance
iPod Hi-Fi features three speaker cones custom designed to provide balanced sound across the frequency range. The result of numerous rigorous acoustic tests, this design delivers room-filling stereo imaging. The two 80 mm wide-range cones are set in dedicated chambers and isolated on the front plate, providing mid and high frequencies that sound vivid and bright. The natural bass of iPod Hi-Fi is generated by a 130 mm woofer. Thanks to the airtight sealing, the low frequencies are enriched inside the enclosure and then directed via tuned tubes through ports in the front.

Energy bar
No need to find a place to hide an unsightly power brick, as iPod Hi-Fi houses all power components internally. Or run iPod Hi-Fi on six D-cell batteries(2). Either way, it plays your music with big, warm sound. In DC mode, custom electronics manage the energy to enhance battery life and sound, even adjusting volume as necessary. And iPod Hi-Fi will charge your iPod from its batteries when the iPod runs low.

Look who's talking
Seamless integration means more than just plopping your iPod into a set of speakers. That's why iPod Hi-Fi actually communicates with your iPod. Just connect your iPod to the built-in Universal Dock and a simple, intuitive Speakers menu(3) lets you personalize iPod Hi-Fi to match your music. Take tone control, for starters. You can choose settings like "Normal," "Treble Boost," or "Bass Boost" to produce tones perfectly suited to your surroundings. You can also choose to display album art in a large, easily viewable format while iPod Hi-Fi plays. Set the backlight to remain on while playing and that album art positively pops off your iPod.

Take charge
iPod Hi-Fi not only plays nice with any iPod(4) using a dock adapter, it charges the iPod, too. Just drop your iPod into the built-in dock and you can play music and charge your iPod all at once. When plugged into an AC outlet, iPod Hi-Fi fully charges the iPod battery. And if you're running iPod Hi-Fi on D-cell batteries(2), it even provides your iPod with a charge so you can still play on the go.

  2. D-cell batteries sold separately
  3. Speakers menu and Tone Control only available on iPod nano and iPod with video

I listened to both at Apple store, and felt I needed a better test at home. So I bought both Bose and Apple. My report? Bose sounds a little richer, fuller. Apple has more user control capabilities to tune the sound for more bass, classic, jazz, etc. although none of these seemed to do much. Bottom line, both are good. I moved the Bose to my wife cuz she can't deal with making different settings, I kept the Apple so I could try a few changes in the settings and it was a bit louder and almost equalled the Bose in quality. If my wife told me to swap 'em, I'd be fine with that too. Slight preference for Apple controls and using ipod displays, slight preference for Bose sound richness. Bose does take up less desk top space, perhaps half the Apple. Sorry if I can't tell you that I have a definite pick, but it's a slight edge to the Apple for me (controls, visibility of what's playing) versus a slight sound advantage to Bose. BTW, each are very simple to use, plug in the iPod and you're set to go. Oh, should all our choices be so good.

It is obvious that Apple made a mistake claiming the Ipod Hi Fi would replace an Audiophile's home system. That claim has opened them up for criticism but, that is the only thing that can be criticized. The Hi Fi system is what it is - and that is a pretty amazing little device. I am not an expert, nor am I a novice in the art of high fidelity. I am, however, a Musician who has held Music and sound quality close to my heart for many, many years. I went to the Apple store with my AAC compressed 4 gig Nano and plugged into the system. Honestly, the sound at the store did not "blow me away"; I was in a busy store with much background noise. Realizing that the environment has much to do with sound quality, I took a chance and purchased it. I had dismissed most of the reviews that I read as sour grapes (for some reason) against Apple from people who do not own the system - had to be, some of the reviews were written before the system was even available! I was right; when I got this home and listened to it I was impressed. I do not listen to music that has that "wall' of sound (i.e. power chords, screaming vocals, retarded drums) I listen to music that has dimension (i.e. Jazz, Funk, Fusion). I wanted an audio device that would allow me to control my Ipod via remote, hold most of my favorite tunes, not fill my living room up with audio equipment, and be loud and clear enough to surround me with un-distorted sound. This system fills that bill. My one complaint is: you need to crank it up a bit for it to "come alive". At loud volumes, I find the tone control set to treble boost works best and at lower volumes set it to bass boost, meaning you need to re-adjust it upon volume changes.Read more ›

Okay, I just purchased an iPod Hi-Fi (on Apple's 30th birthday!). It's sitting in front of me and I'm listening to it right now. Here is my impression after two days of is a VERY nicely designed product. The size is perfect and the ability to run on battery is highly convenient. As expected, it mates with the iPod beautifully (I have an iPod mini). The million dollar question is how does it sound? Well, honestly, do NOT expect to be amazed. Once you stop expecting earthshattering performance from it, it'll pleasantly surprise you. It sounds best when it's placed directly in front of you and at least 8 feet away. Some music sounds better on it than other (see end of this review). I'd say the sound quality/performance is good but not jawdropping, EXCEPT when you turn the volume up...way up! It can power a nice sized backyard party. I would not, however, buy it as a home theatre system replacement. It just doesn't have the floor-shaking bass nor the head-turning soundstage. Don't get me wrong, it sounds very good for what it is. It's perfect for the bedroom, in the backyard, on a boat, at tailgate parties. But is it worth the price for me? I'm still debating with myself on that question. It would be a nobrainer if I have an Airport Express and a 5G iPod already.

Music with emphasis on the following sounds great on iPod HF:
1. acoustic guitar/banjos
2. female vocals (superb!)
3. piano
4. music with real instruments

Music with too much of these doesn't sound as good on iPod HF:
1. music with a lot of bass
2. violin
3. synthesized music
4. tracks with weak recording/encoding
5. sound effect heavy music

I chose the Apple Hifi over the Bose for the following reasons:

-Apple Hifi has more BASS which for me was virtually too low on the Bose. This was a big factor for me since I listen to a very wide and versatile genres from R&B to Jazz, Classical, and Rock. Bass was absolutely impressive from the Hifi! Put in Black Eye Peas and you'll see the difference from both units. The Bose simply "punches" the bass while the Hifi goes deep down low. I could not believe they were coming out from such a small unit!

-Clarity is also very impressive on the Hifi which I can say could go side by side with the Bose. Voices come alive and the high's are amazing. Clarity is where Bose is well known for and I would have to say Apple did a great job on this.

-Touch sensitive volume control impressed me as well as with the amber and green light emitted by the Hifi to acknowledge you of remote function via the superb quality of the included iPod shuffle looking remote. Plus audio input for external audio source and operation via batteries is a big plus on the Hifi. This features were absent from Bose.

-Personally I love the simplicity and craftsmanship of the Hifi. Well built. You could really feel the sturdyness of this unit. Love the two carrying handles on the side. Plus it complements both black and white iPods.

The Bose performed good as well when I went to their showroom but it simply was'nt WOW for me..I was more impressed with Apple's Hifi that really amazed me. I was actually ready to purchase the Bose sound dock at our local mall when I came across a strange retro looking white box and asked if I could try it out, I was blown away by the tunes of "Sharing the Night Together" by Fiji, the bass was awesome! Right there I decided to get the Apple instead.
