Customer Reviews

The highest level you can get the volume up to isn't that high at all.
Trottin'-Butterz
Really like that this plays the radio, CDs, and audio from my iPods but if I had known how quiet it's max volume was I probably would not have gotten it.

I must have moved this around and around so many times I could have been dancing.

...Some improvements need to be made. I bought one this past Monday and tried it at work today. The highest level you can get the volume up to isn't that high at all. That's fine if you're just going to use it poolside or whatever, but I was looking for something more sturdy for a workplace atmosphere, and the noise in the autobody shop drowns out this little guy.

I like the design, but the display is about as basic as it gets and it takes a while for it to load a CD.

Why doesn't anyone make a sturdy water resistant boombox anymore?! Is there not a market for them? Sony has a pro one, but it's WAY more expensive and is really meant for a construction site. Why must 9/10 of the ipod-capable mini-systems/boomboxes just suck and have junk design? There's no way that this flimsy little radio should cost as much as it does.

I wanted a small iPod dock to set on the counter in the bathroom so I could listen to my iPod or the radio while I got ready for work in the morning. After going through several different units, we finally found this one. Every other unit we tested had horrible sound. When we found one that had decent sound, it was much too large for the space we had available on the counter. We finally found this boombox, and have been more than satisfied with it. The sound is excellent, even at low volumes, and it is waterproof, so any water that gets splashed on it doesn't hurt a bit! We use it for the radio, iPod dock, and the CD player. I love having the 10 pre-set radio stations. I saw this boombox was recently used in an episode of Glee, so apparently others have discovered how great this unit is as well!

Really like that this plays the radio, CDs, and audio from my iPods but if I had known how quiet it's max volume was I probably would not have gotten it. This is more for easy listening if you're not around other noises. Definitely not a boombox for parties.

With the amount of products on the market I was willing to shell out some significant cash to get what I needed. This was what Best Buy had to offer and I am really suprised at the simple inefficiancy of the product. My needs are simple I think. I need a clear signal with a LOUD radio. AM, FM stations AND presets available. Ipod capability was second on my list. That it had CD and water-resistant build were nice too. It's also a cute product. It looks like something straight out of the Jetsons. But Insignia, why do you have to get my hopes up and then let me down!!

The directions say to keep the cord a certain length away from the device and then turn the machine around a little for optimum radio signal strength. I must have moved this around and around so many times I could have been dancing. Nothing I did gave it a permanently strong signal. Sometimes it helped if I stood right next to it or jiggled the cord a little or did the hokey pokey and turned it all around. I did finally find a place in my room. Behind my desk. At the top of a bookshelf. Which can only be reached after I clear off my desk and climb on top of it. I was finally able to hear the full volume and clear signal of the radio from there....which was still not very loud or very clear.

I'm taking it back tomorrow. I'm going to try something that's not such a cardio routine to operate.

A little more development please, Insignia. I did not try the Ipod dock or the CD. I'm sure they work just fine. It's just the THE VOLUME is maddening.

I saw this online and was prepared to buy it because I have an older generation ipod and was just looking for something for the baby's room to play her kid tunes. I was surprised there wasnt that much out there, most people expect you to play music direclty from your iPod these days, but HELLO, people still make, buy and play CDs.

I ended up getting it for $60 at the Best Buy store and was surprised to see it so expensive on Amazon. I haven't tried to play things I burn or newer CD's on it.

For the price I paid, it serves its purpose and even a bit more since its waterproof and basically baby tamperproof.

The ipod cannot be touched or moved in the slightest or it won't play on this boombox. Not worth purchasing if you think it's great because it has AM/FM radio...only about 2 stations come in if you're lucky. It doesn't sound bad for a baby's bedroom, which is where I put it so he can listen to quiet tunes on the CD part to fall asleep to.

This portable dock is the best thing you could get. I like to listen to music in the shower, so it stays in my bathroom. The sound is pretty good, but then again, bathrooms are small and have good acoustics. This probably wouldn't make a good party boombox, but as a personal ipod dock, it's pretty solid, i've dropped it a few a times, and i've had it for a few years, and i've yet to have any problems with it. I always keep it plugged in, so i'm not sure how good its battery consumption rate is, but otherwise, i'd highly recommend it.
