I know I have mentioned this over and over again but I am a huge fan of Bose®. Their sound quality is consistently exceptional, their connectivity is reliable and their products always have a clean, minimalist style that fits into any design scheme and I am sure the new Bose® Sounddock® XT Speaker will be no different.

Here are some of the great features packed into the new Bose® Sounddock® XT Speaker:

Style and General Design

Sounddock 3.jpgThis speaker is about the size of a tissue box. It has a clean, white front panel and the back panel is available in either yellow, if you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your décor, or dark grey, if you’re wanting a sleek speaker that will blend in with what you already have. The volume control is conveniently located on the base of the speaker on either side of the Apple Lightning™ connector. Unlike previous sounddocks from Bose®, this unit does not come with a remote, but I simply see that as one less item to misplace!

Sound Quality

As with every Bose® product, the Sounddock® XT Speaker has a high-quality acoustic design. I have owned a Bose® sounddock for many years and I think of it as the equivalent of a multi-speaker sound system in a box. Regardless of the volume, I never have to worry about the speaker crackling on a song with big bass or losing the full, concert sound in the middle of a live album. It has been one of the most reliable and durable investments I have ever made, so though I haven’t tried the latest sounddock installment from Bose®, I would trust that the sound quality will not disappoint.

Apple Lightning

As mentioned above, the Bose® Sounddock® XT Speaker is equipped to fit any Apple iPod® or iPhone® with Apple Lightning™ connectivity, which is the newest connector port from Apple. Once connected, the sounddock with charge your iPhone® or iPod®. Though it does not fit the older, 30-pin connector port there is an auxiliary port at the back that allows you to play older Apple products and any other Sounddock 2.jpgaudio device!


The device is powered through AC power via your wall outlet.

Overall, Bose® is a consistently high-quality, reliable electronics brand. Their products are durable, stylish and will give you consistently full, layered sound. Bose® is adding to its esteemed collection with the Bose® Sounddock® XT Speaker. Available in yellow and dark grey, this compact speaker has a high-quality acoustic design that will allow you hear your music library at its best. Once you have attached your Apple iPod® or iPhone® to the Lightning™ connection docking port, you will be able to endlessly play your favorite tunes while your device charges. Don’t have an Apple device with the Lightning™ connection port? Not to worry, the Bose® Sounddock® XT Speaker is also equipped with an auxiliary port that will let you play your music library from any audio device.
