Sony Black CD Boombox For iPhone And iPod - ZSS3IPBLACK

Add some boom to your room with this CD boombox for iPhone® and iPod®. You can also connect an MP3 player via the built-in audio input.

Enjoy the ultimate in full-function portable audio with the ZS-S3IP CD boombox. More than your average CD player and digital AM/FM tuner, you can also play the tunes stored on your compatible iPhone or iPod. An easy to use flexible dock connector not only charges your iPod or iPhone, but also accommodates the protective case. In addition to controlling your music directly from your iPod or iPhone, the supplied remote provides access to your tunes from across the room.

Make your speaker dock even more useful by downloading Sony's D-Sappli app completely free of charge. Use its Music Play Timer functionality to set your music to automatically start and stop whenever you'd like. Fall asleep to your favorite nighttime playlist without the annoyance of waking up to it the next morning by setting Sleep Timer to turn it off after you've fallen asleep – it's just like the Sleep Timer on your TV. Switch things up with 7 uniquely attractive clock display designs or adjust the brightness to just the way you'd like by sliding your finger vertically on the screen. For speaker dock models with the applicable clock function, D-Sappli automatically synchs date/time information from your iPod® touch, iPhone®, or iPad® so you don't have to, plus it makes it easy to set the alarm via the touch screen

Very Nice Product but Not I-Phone 4 compatible


from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox For iPhone And iPod:

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


from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox For iPhone And iPod:

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


from Kentucky

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox For iPhone And iPod:

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.

from Beach Park, Il

Comments about Sony Black CD Boombox For iPhone And iPod:

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.
