Microsoft Audio Dock review: An excellent all-in-one solution for workspaces

Microsoft’s new PC docking station is designed to enhance workplace meeting rooms with an all-in-one solution for docking a laptop to a larger conference display, while expanding ports, adding virtual meeting controls, a higher-quality microphone and a dedicated speaker system with subwoofer for rich sound.

That’s the unique selling point of the Microsoft Audio Dock, which is a true all-in-one solution that includes a pretty good audio setup. But for $249, this kind of peripheral only makes sense in the meeting room. This is my review.

The Microsoft Audio Dock isn’t a cheap peripheral, but that’s because you’re getting quite a bit of hardware in this small package. You can find the Audio Dock directly from the Microsoft Store or Amazon for a retail price of around $250. Here are the specs and what you get in the box:

The Microsoft Audio Dock is one of the more stylish PC docks you can find on the market these days. While most docks are housed in a square plastic or metal box, the Audio Dock has a rounded pill shape, covered by a modern mesh fabric that hides the included speaker drivers.
