Description

Dust down your Bose Series 1, give it a new lease and turn it Bluetooth with the LAYEN BS-1! The BS-1 is a Bluetooth receiver that has been designed specifically for the first generation Bose SoundDock.

If you, like many others, have tried 30 pin receivers in the Bose Series 1 that simply won't work - this is the solution for you. You no longer need to invest in a brand new docking station, use the BS-1 and stay faithful to your much loved Bose dock!

  • Stream your music wirelessly from any Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, iPod, MP3 player or laptop
  • Transmission distance is 10m+ away (even through walls!)
  • Keep your device on you and use it as the remote control
  • Auto-pair function means you won't have to pair each time you want to use it. Just click pair on your device again and hit play!
  • The BS-1 will automatically disconnects when your device is out of range.
  • It can also remember up to 8 devices!
  • 30pin connection. Bluetooth profile: A2DP & AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile).
  • The BS-1 receives power directly from the dock, no separate charging required 

Please note: this receiver has been designed specifically for the Bose SoundDock 1, this is the original Bose dock released to the market. If you have a later version Bose or a different dock altogether please purchase the LAYEN i-DOCK or LAYEN i-SYNC. Slim and portable, small yet powerful. With crystal clear sound, audio quality will not be compromised, nor will the music you love

Simply insert onto the 30pin connection on your dock. Use the Bluetooth settings on your device to pair with the BS-1. Once paired, you are ready to stream your music wirelessly!

This premium music receiver comes at a fraction of the price of investing in a new Bluetooth dock. Sound quality is CRYSTAL clear. You will be amazed at how quickly (and with such ease) this brilliant little receiver will transform the way you listen to your music. The BS-1 has an auto-repair function and can remember up to 8 devices.

Once you've used it, you'll be lost without it!

Compatibility: The BS-1 has been created for the original Bose Series 1 dock. If you have a later version Bose or another dock altogether please purchase the LAYEN i-DOCK or LAYEN i-SYNC.

    I have owned my series 1 Bose Speakers for a number of years now and think that they are one of the best buys that I have made. As I have progressed through a series of iPhones and an iPad, I considered buying the newer Soundlink Bose Speakers. Great write ups and fantastic as they are, I was loathed to ditch a perfectly good set of speakers and part with almost 300. After doing a bit of research, I found the solution with this Layen product. Easy to use and works perfectly. One small piece of advice....if you are using with multiple devices, you must disconnect the bluetooth connection on the device that you are using prior to connecting another one. Honest and reliable description Layen, thank you

    Does the job. although one thing that can be improved is that when its connected to one device and you want to connect to another, you cant forcefully connect it to second device, you will have to disconnect it from the first and only then connect to second. so you have to go around looking for the first device.

    Adapter arrived 3 days after ordering. Fitted Bose series 1 perfectly, no pairing problems on either my android phone or ipad. Worked perfectly. What more is there to say? If you want a device that works, buy this.

    Rating Fab Receiver and great service
     
    I wanted a receiver for my Bose Series 1 dock so I could play my iPhone via bluetooth. I emailed and asked what product I needed and was advised to buy the BS-1 Bluetooth. It arrived a couple of days later but I couldn't quite get it working but after a quick phonecall I was walked through what to do and its now working perfectly. A really fabulous neat product to update an older but still great sound system. Thank you!

    Rating Neat unit, worked quite well but was not totally compatible
     
    This unit sounded great but was noisy on pause. It turned out , after excellent technical support from Layen, that my original Bose sounddock was one of 2 of the original types and needed a different unit. So I returned this one and was sent a new model by Layen. This also sounds great and works faultlessly. So 4 stars as this one was not perfect but returns at Amazon and customer service from Layen was excellent. So if you have a Bose sounddock type 1 it's worth checking with Layen which one before you buy. I-pad, Spotify and sounddock now work well and sound great! Happy customer :-)

    Rating Works brilliantly! Saves a small fortune
     
    Originally I bought just the Layden bluetooth adaptor, before realising I had a series 1 Bose speaker system. Quick call to Layden on numbers provided with product & they talkrd me through the Series 1 solution. Ok, so I had to spend a little more but still cheaper than than the Bose alternative! Arrived quickly. Very happy.

    Rating What a find!
     
    I had started looking at new docks as my Bose was redundant starting to collect dust - it annoyed me though as it's still in good nick and even though it's a few years old still sounds brilliant. By chance I came across this solution from a Google search. Came through quickly, set-up and playing within 1 minute : ) - it's a tiny little gadget, but does the job perfectly. Has saved my Bose from a premature grave....

    Asked by:  - 9/5/2013 (Submit an answer)

    Q: Is this adapter specifically for the Bose Series 1 or is it compatible with other iPod docks?
    Asked by:  - 9/27/2013 (Submit an answer)
    A: Hi - the BS1 has been designed specifically to work with the Bose Series 1, 1st Generation Docking Stations. It could possibly work with other docks that have a similar charging issue to the Bose 1 1st Gen - you can always test it and return it if not compatible. But please note - if your docking station CAN charge an iPhone 4th Gen upwards (not iPod) then it will not work and you should purchase the I-Dock. Please call us for any further clarification. Thanks LAYEN

    Q: How do i know if i have a Bose 1st generation docking station?
    Asked by:  - 9/3/2013 (Submit an answer)
    A: Hi, Bose docks all look similar. The general rule is if it doesnt charge an iphone 4 onwards, its a Bose 1. THe Bose 1 has an older charging output so we have designed this adapter to support that charge output. Thank you.

    Asked by:  - 10/10/2013 (Submit an answer)
    A: This adapter is designed for the Bose 1 only. All other adapters on the market will not work with a Bose 1. We have made it to work with the Bose 1st Generation Dock. It will work with a iphone 5. Infact it will work with any bluetooth enabled device so you can use with your Ipod or Ipad etc.

    Asked by:  - 12/31/2013 (Submit an answer)
    A: Hi If your Dock can charge an iPhone 4 upwards, then you need an I-DOCK or I-SYNC. If it can't, you need the BS-1 or BS-2. If you don't have an iPhone 4 to test on it, we recommend purchasing the I-DOCK and If it's not compatible returning it to us (undamaged and in undamaged packaging) for a BS-1.

    Asked by:  - 3/31/2014 (Submit an answer)
    A: Hi there, in this instance, you will need to simply purchase one to try it out. If it doesn't power up you know you need the other one. Try either the BS-1 or the I-DOCK. We can swop them over easily for you so long as they are returned to us in the same condition in which they were sent out.
