Utilizes I-Pod function with ease from remote.

I would reccommend this unit to anyone looking for a great kitchen, bedroom, or smaller room radio that does it all!

Very Nice Product but Not I-Phone 4 compatible

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

Rec'd this as an employee recognition gift after choosing from an on-line catalogue. The reason I selected this particular one is that is was I-Phone compatible. Unfortunately after getting it home I realized that it is only compatible with I-Phione 5 and up, and not I-Phone 4. The on-line description did state that it was compatible with I-Pod and I-Phone. Too bad because it is a very nice system. Had to send it back.

Not a bad purchase

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

Got it for Christmas, and I was very thankful for receiving it. The remote is helpful, epically for a person who likes to listen to the radio in the shower. I use the remote to change stations in case of commercials, while in the shower. The remote is "Water Resistance," but I wouldn't recommend putting in/near any water source.

Regret purchase

By 

from Kentucky

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

I compare this unit to a nearly 30 year old stereo portable from GE model 3-6023A [stereo cassette player, see photo] which unfortunately has to be scrapped due to a defective display. However, this old GE unit outperformed the Sony unit in sound and radio reception by a long shot. Almost all my electronics are from Sony [Vaio laptop, Bravia TV, Blue-ray player, Cybershot camera]. This boom box is by far the worst piece of equipment I ever bought from Sony.

    I needed a portable MP3 player for my iPod that would also play CDs. This has met all expectations so far. The nice surprise was a handle that folds neatly into the top thats not noted in the prduct description. Recommended.

    Exactly what I wanted

    By 

    from West Coast

    Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

    I wanted a boom box for my cubie in the typical concrete and steel office building. This works perfectly. It protects my ipod from dust, has great sound and has been reliable. Radio reception is better than others I've had in the past. I've created custom play lists for ipod and my cubicle dwelling neighbors enjoy the music too.

    Awesome

    By 

    from Beach Park, Il

    Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

    I bought the Boombox for my son's birthday party. It was a hit because I created a playlist on my Ipod and then I plugged it in and let it play. No more running around because the CD ended or the CD is skipping. I loved that it would keep charging the Ipod while it was on the dock. It was wonderful because other parents would pull out there Ipod or even MP3 players. Using a 3.5 earphone jack (not included) I was able to connect there devices to the Boombox and we heard all kinds of wonderful selection of music. One of the best parts was the remote. If the song was to slow or now right for the party I would just skip to the next song or turn the volume up or down from 20 feet away. The remote even lets you control the Ipod Menu. I will be taking it camping since it only requires 6C batteries and even then the Boombox is not heavy.

    Great Product (for what it is...)

    By 

    from Seattle, Washington, USA

    Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

    I got this for my wife who wanted something simple to use for CD's. That it plays iPod tunes is a bonus, and I just happened to have an old, 1st generation iPod Touch laying around with nothing to do. The unit DOES look 80's, but that's NOT to say it looks BAD. Many "boom boxes" look positively ugly these days (2012), and this one though large, has a very understated design. The radio and the CD work well and for their intended purpose. My wife is bedridden and simply wanted something that was easy to use and that had a remote. The remote is well laid-out and functions well. The unit as a whole looks good in a living room, family room or bedroom. The only beef I have with the ZS-S4iP is that while it DOES protect the iPod and charge it, switching to "iPod" mode only allows me to play and switch between whatever songs are on the current album. There is no way to "swipe" the iPod to wake not up unless I replace the clear plastic cover for the open one, and that kind of defeats the purpose of having a cover to protect the expensive iPod Touch. That said, it works, looks good and the price was right. There are very few iPod players that will accept CD's. This is one of them. Just don't expect it to play really loud, it simply can't and don't expect too much control of an iPod Touch; that's very limited. Still I'm glad I purchased this.

        Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

        If I use it even in the evening outdoors in the summer, my phone overheats bc it is enclosed. The button for the door to open the iPod dock broke off in 2 months. Used it at a party and we couldn't hear it past my patio. Very disappointed. Currently talking to Sony but they will only repair it if I pay to ship it, and I don't want something that may potentially damage my phone. [$] down the drain and only used it a few months.

        Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox With iPod Dock:

        If your looking for a portable music box to play am/fm radio and your iPhone music, this fits the bill. Sound is acceptable for a unit at this price. I use it in the house and outside patio. It provides good overall sound, better than most other boxes in its class. Mega bass adds a little tiny extra thump but not much. Remote is handy also has interchangeable iPod door carriage which is useful so when you dock your iPhone, you can have access to the screen or use the full window to provide extra protection for your expensive iPhone/Touch. Overall great value, just don't expect 1980s style Boombox sound...Oh yeah, plays CD's too, in case you're into that sort of thing.
