Has anyone here used any of the cheap speaker docks best buy sells?
I was thinking of getting one of those docking stations with speakers that best buy sells for work to make the sound louder. Has anyone ever used one of these and do they really get a lot louder than the normal phone speakers, they have a set for 30$ i have my eye on.

well i'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for.. i put that to the test one day at my local best buy when i had my 3G..
i went around sticking my device on various docks. i could definitely tell the difference between the $30 vs the $180.. so it's all about what you are happy with and what you are willing to spend
it seemed the cheap ones distorted way too easily. i never did buy one though.. i can think of a lot of other things to spend $100+ on

I agree with blink. You can definitely hear the difference. The Logitech S715i are more expensive at about $100, but they sound great, and they have a rechargeable battery built in so they can easily move around the house, to the garage, laundry room, backyard, whatever. I love them.

There are two versions. One for the 3G/3GS and one for the iPhone 4. You might want to try it and then look on ebay for a good deal.

We bought a Sony ICF-CS10iP FM/AM clock radio at Best Buy for $99 for our kitchen. We like to listen to iPod, Pandora an Podcasts while cooking, we're happy with the sound, we didn't need it to blast through the house, we have our Apple TV and sound system for that. Guess it depends on what you want it for.

I got an iLive Soundbar with iPod Drawer (it comes out when you need it and goes back in when on other sources) for christmas and it worked great with my iphone 3G and works great with my iphone4 I have now.
when I put it on the dock I get a message about charging not compatible with this accessory but it still charges my phone for me.
sound is great coming from the soundbar and I also have my DirecTV box plugged into it so when I'm watching TV I get a good sound in my bedroom
