Even with a brand-new iPod, it can often feel like something is missing. Sure, listening to the device with your headphones is fine—even what it was originally intended for—but sometimes you want to rock out like you used to with your stereo or shelf system. The ideal solution is to pick up an iPod dock, which will let you pump up your music without blowing out your eardrums. Here are three good docks whose prices have dipped 15 percent or more.
Editors’ Note: All listed prices are current as of the date of publication—and apt to change quickly and often.
JBL On Stage IIIP
Savings: $40 (23.5 percent)
Why You Want It: The JBL On Stage IIIP earns Apple’s "Works with iPhone" certification," so it’s perfect for iPhoners who want to pump out their tunes. The small, portable device delivers quality audio and includes a remote for full iPod navigation.
Altec Lansing T612
Savings: $44 (22 percent)
Why You Want It: The T612 is another good choice for iPhone users. The audio is well-balanced, and the device allows the user to tweak the treble and bass. Because of its price and capability similarities to the On Stage IIIP, style mavens can choose between the two very different designs.
Logitech Pure-Fi Dream
Savings: $39 (19.5 percent)
Why You Want It: We loved this dock enough to award it an Editors’ Choice rating. The device can be used as an alarm clock, and it is well-designed, simple to set up, and easy to use. It also has powerful speakers, strong bass, and a backlit remote.
