How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Lower East Side Audio Dock Air provides solid, bass-boosted sound when paired with your iTunes library using Apple's AirPlay wireless technology. Since AirPlay is Wi-Fi based, the Audio Dock Air has greater range than comparable Bluetooth speakers. Though the Audio Dock Air is somewhat pricey compared to some other AirPlay speakers, such as the iHome iW1, it provides significantly superior sound. It also lacks a battery, making it strictly a homebound solution. Still, if you're committed to iTunes (or use a workaround to stream non-iTunes content via AirPlay), and you can afford it, the Audio Dock Air is a great way to spread your muisc throughout your home.
