The Kicker ZK500: Thumping, Great-Quality Sound

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

Product Category: Speaker dock
Manufacturer: Kicker
Where to Buy: Zune.net Store or Amazon.com [Affiliate]
Price: $114.99 USD (Zune.net sale price) or $176.99 (Amazon)
System Requirements: Compatible with Zune 30, Zune 4/8/16, Zune 80/120, and technically the Zune HD.
Specifications: Kicker has them all.

Pros:

  • Excellent sound - crisp highs, solid bass response;
  • Has auxiliary audio input so can act as computer speakers;
  • Works with all Zune models, including the Zune HD (the remote doesn't work with it however).

Cons:

  • Remote control is a bit strange, and there's no place to store it;
  • No battery-powered option, which is important for some people;
  • Darth Vader-inspired design may not be for everyone.

Summary: I've had a Kicker ZK-500 for quite a while now, but never quite got around to reviewing it - it's a character flaw of mine that I'll sometimes start working on a review but not finish it - but seeing as Microsoft is selling the Kicker ZK-500 from their online store right now for a mere $114.99 USD, I knew that I had to share my thoughts quickly before the sale ends. This is one great-sounding speaker dock! Read more...
