Excerpts from the review:
The iPhone simply slides into the Boost and connects into the lightning port at the base. A supplied USB power cord charges the battery and iPhone simultaneously. Once charged the batter will increase the phone charge by approximately 120%. For me, that was like getting and extra day out of my phone.
I spent a lot of time listening to Rock, Jazz and Classical over the course of a few weeks using the Music Boost and I can say that it really did sound superior to the iPhone alone. Through the Arcam MusicBoost, music had better dimensionality, tighter bass and smoother treble.
My wife and son auditioned it to and commented on how much better the sound was through the Music Boost.
With the extended battery life, I could listen to music all day and well into the next without a charge.
...the Arcam MusicBoost did what it set out to accomplish. It makes your music sound better, drives just about any headphones and charges your iPhone 6 when you run low on juice. It is certainly a unique device and I am sure there are plans for a newer version when the next iteration of the iPhone comes along. It makes a great companion for the music lover on-the-go!
