I posted last week about Philips releasing accessories for the iPhone 5 and now Bose has just announced their own. I have to point something out that I’ve noticed, they’re aren’t many accessories out there for the iPhone 5 yet. I remember when the other iPhones came out there seemed to be a deluge of PR about the new accessories for the new phone, but I don’t see that this time. Sure there are cases but no real major accessories like we saw before. I think Apple may have really screwed up with changing the connector…
Today, Bose introduces the SoundDock® Series III system, its first SoundDock digital music system designed for use with the iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation) and iPod nano (7th generation).
Now, owners can enjoy the iconic Bose SoundDock combination of small size and full-range audio performance from any iPod or iPhone model with a Lightning connector. An included remote control operates the system and the basic functions of the iPod or iPhone, and can switch back and forth between playlists. For flexibility and convenience, the SoundDock III system features an auxiliary input to connect other audio devices, and charges the iPod or iPhone while docked.
The Bose SoundDock III system incorporates a proprietary acoustic design and digital signal processing. The result is accurate, detailed, room-filling sound without increasing the system’s width or depth. The SoundDock III system’s industrial design is signature Bose, maintaining clean, modern lines, and a sleek, slim profile.
The Bose® SoundDock® Digital Music System Story Originally introduced in 2004, Bose SoundDock systems changed the way people listen to their iPod and iPhone, making it easier than ever to enjoy digital music out loud from a one-piece system. Today, SoundDock systems enjoy a global following, with a level of performance and simplicity that continue to define the category.
Availability The new SoundDock Series III system will be available from Bose beginning December 8, 2012 in Gloss Black for $249.95. It will be sold at authorized Bose dealers, Bose retail stores, online at http://www.Bose.com and toll-free at 1-800-444-BOSE (2673).
