The func­tion­al­ity of the XDOCK 4+ is by far the big­gest as­set of this bril­liant prod­uct from Kit­sound. With this sur­pris­ingly light­weight piece of kit you can: set up to two alarms; lis­ten to mu­sic through Blue­tooth, AUX ca­ble or light­ning con­nec­tion; charge your iphone or ipod; and tune in to ra­dio sta­tions with the built-in an­tenna. The mains plug also comes with three adap­tors: UK, USA and EU (the EU adap­tor works in shav­ing ports in bath­rooms so you can lis­ten to your favourite tunes in the shower).

The sound qual­ity from the speak­ers is far bet­ter than you would ex­pect from a dock that only costs around £50. Although it may not be as clear as ex­tremely high-end prod­ucts, the XDOCK 4+’s 40mm driver can re­ally pack a punch. It’s an ideal speaker for any­where around the house and can be eas­ily moved around due to its pe­tite size and weight.

The only real draw­backs to the dock are the slightly fid­dly con­trols that are on the side of the frame; this isn’t helped by a lack of re­mote which means you have to phys­i­cally go up to the kit to ad­just vol­ume or other fea­tures. The XDOCK 4+ also must be plugged into the mains at all times, which can be a bit te­dious if you are mov­ing around a lot. How­ever, three AAA bat­ter­ies can be put into the dock as a backup to neatly side­step this par­tic­u­lar is­sue. An ex­tremely ef­fec­tive piece of kit that presents great value for money.

No dock­ing sta­tion with alarm clock func­tion­al­ity would be com­plete with­out a ‘snooze’ but­ton to idly smack! The de­vice comes with a mains adap­tor and you can also use an AUX 3.5mm jack ca­ble as a Blue­tooth al­ter­na­tive Con­trols on the side of the unit al­low for vol­ume ad­just­ment, alarm se­lec­tion and track skip­ping…
