Supercomp Music Station SES 668 detailed review



May Not Be Music To Your Ears

The SES668 Music Station is essentially an iPod dock with killer looks. The dome-shaped design looks good and the use of silver highlight on a jet black body adds that extra style—something missing on most cheap docks.

On the top of the speaker sits the dock receptacle. The receptacle accepts multiple base connectors thus allowing the use of almost all generation of iPods, expect for the newer wider body Nano. The base connector is large enough to hold most iPods in place.

On the four corners of the squares, are the buttons for powering on and volume control, and one is a dummy button. The buttons are hard to press with distinct clicks, however one can keep them pressed to increase / decrease the volume. The volume control isn’t smooth and boosts in huge steps.

The dock requires 12 V and it is powered via an adapter that runs off the mains. There is no option for alternative power source like batteries, if the mains are down. The iPod can be charged via the dock and the USB connector allows it to be connected to a PC for data transfer. The dock also has an auxiliary input thus allowing an alternate sound source.

On the performance front, the dock didn’t perform as per our expectation.  Bass is non-existent and the drum beats often sound flat, highs are not reproduced at all and the mid-range is completely muddled. Also there is no way to control the playback from the dock, and you will have to use the iPod.  

Though affordably priced at Rs 1,350, the SES668 Music Dock isn’t the right solution for your iPod. We suggest that you up the ante and invest in JBL or Bose if you care for music quality, else stick to the stock earphones.
