I bought this for my wedding actually. We were getting married in our backyard and weren't having a dj so I needed a sound system that didn't take up a lot of room but still had excellent sound quality. This product delivered just that! I was able to plug my iphone 5 into it and stream music from my rhapsody account for our ceremony and reception. The sound is outstanding, although I only gave 4 stars because the sound is better when it's plugged in than when running on the batteries. Not a big deal though! We kept it plugged in and it worked perfectly. The sound is very clear and crisp. I didn't have any trouble with my iphone 5 not connecting properly or rocking back and forth like some other reviewers mentioned. All in all, definitely worth the money. I now use it in my home office while working, kitchen while cooking, or set it up in my living room when I'm cleaning the house.

I am a sucker for nice design, and the shape of this thing was what compelled me to give it a try which is a good thing because how else would you evaluate a speaker other than listening to it.

I was mostly looking for a charging dock, but I want some weight on it so that I can remove the phone with one hand. A speaker dock makes sense. I want it by my bed so it doesn't have to be too powerful, just sounds good. This speaker does just that and more. It gets great clarity from low to high volume. When I use it before bed I often have the volume quite low and it sounds really good. It does a decent job filling up the bedroom when I cranked it.

And I love the design. It's really minimal. There is a power button in the upper back, volume up and down buttons, all flush. Overall, it is a very nice speaker dock.

Decent system, good sound quality, but not as loud as I was hoping for. Sounds about as loud the music playing on my phone even on full volume.

This is a great phone dock, however if you use any sort of phone case or bumper you cannot use this dock unless you take the case off. it was a gift for my husband but because he would have had to take his phone case off all the time to use it he didn't want it. All of the docking stations should take into account the thickness of phone cases so that their docking stations could be used with a phone in a case.

Unfortunately after about 5 months of using this product it completely stopped working. I have no idea what happened all I know is that it would not charge like normal and would not play music through the speakers anymore. My issue was not necessarily with the product itself but the manufacturer. Since I was past the date where I could return the item due to defects I of course had to rely on the manufacturer. This has proven to be nothing less than a nightmare. I was told up front that it was a simple process, "Just send a copy of your invoice and we will process that for you within 48 hours." 6 weeks later I am STILL waiting for the replacement to arrive at my house! I was told I had to call in for updates every day in order for them to replace a $60 item. Every time I called I was told something different, first it was that my invoice was not in the right format, then they said they needed additional documents as backup which I was not told originally. Every conversation was more infuriating than the last. Finally after about a month of this nonsense, 2 managers and about 15 operators later I made a final call. The girl I spoke with told me that they needed one more form. I broke down in tears and said this has been the worst, most frustrating process I have EVER experienced. She was the only person who was even remotely helpful, she logged into my Amazon account and told me she promised this would be done once and for all. She held true to her word and finally, I should receive my replacement in about a week. I like this product but for what I had to go through to replace this item I would be more inclined to spend a little bit more just so that I never have to deal with Philips again. Unfortunately this bad experience has prompted me not to buy from them any time soon.

This speaker has been great for me. It charges my phone super fast and has awesome sound quality. I live in an apartment and the sound fills the space easily without turning it up all the way. I recommend!

Great sound, compact design. Love that it charges my iPod while playing. Was looking for a speaker for both indoor and outdoor use and this is perfect.

It works well with an iPhone 5, but I think my new iPhone 6 has a compatibility issue with this dock. It only works 50% of the time with the iPhone 6.
