Philips Fidelio DS3500/05 iPad speaker dock with bluetooth

Philips Fidelio DS3500/05 iPad speaker

Philips are embracing the Apple iPad these days with their range of Fidelio speaker docks, including this bluetooth enabled Philips Fidelio DS3500/05 iPad speaker dock.

Philips Fidelio DS3500/05 iPad speakerDesign, features & sound

With this latest in the Fidelio iPad speaker range, Philips have gone ahead and made a very compact speaker dock that fits very snugly around the base of the iPad (only supports portrait docking) while keeping true to the traditional Fidelio-range design.

Like the bigger Fidelio DS7700/10, this one is more than just a standard iPad docking station as the size and ability to operate it on battery power (AA/LR6 Alkaline x 4) for up to 8 hours of playback is a plus, although a built-in rechargeable battery would have been better. To take advantage of the speakers without having to dock your iPad/iPhone they have also added bluetooth functionality for wireless streaming. Shielding technology ensures no need for flightmode when iPhone docked.

With aux-in you can easily connect other devices as well, and with the USB cable you can connect your computer for synchronization with docked device.

You can also download the free Fidelio app that will unlock other features, including sound settings and alarm functionality.

The Philips Fidelio DS3500/05 features Neodymium speakers for improved sound balance and bass response, as well as the Philips Dynamic Bass Boost technology, which also gets enhanced with the back firing bass pipes. I will be back with more information on sound performance once had a chance to test the speaker.
