Im sure it would also have a audio jack apart from the docking station through which you can connect any input device to the station.....they would then work as normal speakers....but not a 'dock' where you can park your mp3 player

They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.

SOURCE: bose docking station chip broke off

I had the same problem that the ipod would onl play when I pulled it forward in the dock. Looking closely, I saw that some of the pins on the left hand side of the connector were bent forward, so I bent them back with a needle:

(ie. pushing the pins to the right, as shown here). This solved the problem for me.

If your connector is too far gone, I suggest looking to:

for a new connector for £3-4 or

for a whole PCB (Printed Circuit Board) replacement for £10-15.

Hope this helps...

SOURCE: new ipod won't charge on bose docking station

I have been looking for sometime and have finally found a 3rd party power converter. Another solution is to send your docking station to Bose and for $99.00 they will repin the dock so charging will work. The converter and adapter only cost about $30.00. Here is the link to the site I ordered from. I just ordered it so I am not abot to confirm functionality yet.....

Sounds like it's either a problem with the connector on the iPod or on the dock. To find our which see if it works okay on another dock - if you know anybody with one our text it on a demo model in a store. Or it could also be the plastic dock adapter - take our the adapter and try docking without the adapter.

I have a Bose portable sound dock speaker and it stopped working. It won't work w a aux cord or thru the dock. I have had it about 5 years and paid 400$ for it. Can u help?


Very hard to diagnose remotely, but the most likely reason is the battery has failed.
Are you confident to undo it and check the battery, or perhaps you know someone with a test meter?
Bose are quite helpful, they also have live chat email and phone support.

Unless you know what you're doing, it's probably best to take it in for repairs to someone trustworthy or a local repair shop or get rid of it.

My son received a Sony MP3 Walkman for Christmas and also received a docking station for an IPod. Is there an adapter made for this problem?


No. The "docking station" may have a auxiliary line input which you could plug a 3.5mm headphone jack into if you are looking for the speaker functionality but you will not be able to dock it.

Bose ipod dock shows it is charging ipod and ipod shows to be playing but no sound. Any solutions?


Which ipod are you using? a great many docks are not compatible with the touch. When shopping for a dock to use with the touch there is a separate icon on the packaging that denotes ipod touch and iphone compatibility. If you no longer have the box or user's manual check with Bose' customer service.

If your ipod is not a touch I would check to be sure that the dock connector is clean and clear of debris.


I am also assuming that the ipod synchronizes normally with your computer (meaning that the ipod's socket is good) Try listening to the ipod via headphones while it is connected and charging to make sure that there is not an internal problem with the ipod.

I hope this helps.

There is some docking stations or players for the generic MP3 players but most don't even need them. A lot of them do have speakers attached but you can always get generic stations such as the one that IPOD offers or if you want to save some cash, just get some speakers that will attach to the player. There is a lot of products out there so shop around and even check out your major retailers such as Wal Mart
