Nice option for listening to your iPhone without earbuds...

When I saw the Philips DS7650/37 Fidelio Docking Speaker being offered via Amazon Vine for review, I decided I had the perfect test subject for it... my iPhone-addicted son. He's always listening to music or books, so I set it up in his room to see how it would pass judgement in his eyes. All in all, it did.

Design-wise, it's very well done. The flip-up clamshell design is very stable, and the phone easily hooks into the docking slot. In a closed state, it's narrow enough that I could easily see this going on in the travel bag for trips. The sound was richer than I expected from something of this size. He thought it was a little lacking there, but then again, he's possibly judging it against his full-sized computer speaker setup, which this isn't.

The speaker comes with a battery and a power cord, so you can charge up the speaker and take it around with you. That hasn't happened too much here, as he prefers to just leave it on his nightstand. There's an iPhone app that comes along this this speaker, so you can play internet radio and run some controls through it. Again, nice idea, but not something that came in to play too much in our actual day-to-day usage.

The Philips docking speaker is a good choice for this type of external iPhone speaker arrangement. It's a bit towards the higher side of the price range, but not enough to cause you to wonder if you had completely overpaid for it.
