NEW dockBoss air V2 Available Now!

blog-v2Last November we introduced a new addition to our dockBoss line of accessories that quickly became one of our most popular products. The dockBoss air has already helped thousands of people turn their old iPod speaker docks into great sounding, versatile wireless Bluetooth-enabled audio systems, and for that we are both thrilled and grateful. However, that did not make us complacent, and over time we identified some improvements which we thought could make the dockBoss air even better.

Fast forward to today, where that list of desired improvements has culminated in the release of the NEW dockBoss air. We use an updated version of Bluetooth, which has allowed for increased audio quality and volume. We’ve also done away with the old “pairing code” that you used to have to enter to connect. Our new “1-click pairing” feature combined with a better indicator light and audio cues for power and device connection make using the dockBoss air even easier than before. And last but not least, the dockBoss air now supports remote functionality, so you can use your speaker dock’s remote control to play, pause, & skip tracks.

All these new features plus a slick new form-factor means the dockBoss air has been improved in almost every single way. In our own (unshockingly bias) opinion, we think it’s the best wireless Bluetooth adapter on the market. We think you’ll agree, but don’t just take our word for it. Try for yourself and see.

The NEW dockBoss air is available right now at our web-store at cablejive.com, and will be available here on Amazon.com shortly.

dockBoss Compatibility Help

Our dockBoss and dockBoss+ cables have helped thousands of people connect non-iPod devices to a growing variety of previously iDevice-exclusive music systems. With standard docking stations, like the Bose SoundDock and countless others, compatibility has been excellent almost across the board. However, when it comes to home theater or car-oriented systems, there are still some that don’t want to play nice. Here’s a good way to tell ahead of time whether or not a dockBoss cable will be compatible with your system:

Find (or borrow) an iPod or iPhone and connect it to your system. If upon connecting, the iPod/iPhone gets locked onto a screen that reads “accessory connected” or something similar (see example on right), and you find yourself unable to use the controls on the iPod/iPhone, there’s a good chance the dockBoss won’t work for you.

Here’s why: Systems that lock an iPod or iPhone’s screen and control mechanism use a digital audio interface, which specifically requires an iPod or iPhone to be connected. These systems are custom-built, with elements like control, data, playlists, etc., all deeply ingrained in their own unique software. It isn’t simply good enough to “trick” those systems into thinking an iPod is connected because they actually require the ability to continuously communicate with an iDevice on a system-specific level.

If you find that your system does not lock the iPod/iPhone’s screen and controls, then there’s a good chance a dockBoss cable WILL work for you. These systems use an analog audio interface, which generally jives quite well with dockBoss cables, allowing you to listen to whatever your heart desires from your favorite non-iDevice.

So next time you’re unsure if the dockBoss will work for you, borrow an iPod or iPhone and see if you get locked out. If not, then you should be good to go. As always feel free to email any specific questions to us at service@cablejive.com

Our dockBoss+ cable has made it possible for thousands of of users connect non-Apple devices to their favorite iPod docks and speaker systems; allowing them to listen to audio AND charge where it was not possible before. Its Micro USB connector is compatible with hundreds of the latest gadgets, but it certainly doesn’t cover everybody. What if you need a longer audio connection? Or even worse, what if your device doesn’t utilize a Micro USB connector?
