Summary: I have had this for more than 6 years. Hardly ever go anywhere without it. Also for years when not traveling with me it is hooked up to my computer, iPad or roku in my kitchen. Everyone that comes into my kitchen is amazed that ths one little JBL portable speaker produces what they are listening to. Next, I am going to try the Bluetooth Version for my office.
Summary: I had given mine [that I had had for years] to a new girl friend to use on the computer I gave her. Lost the girl friend, the computer and the JBL On Tour. When I finally remembered the name, I looked on the JBL site. [no longer available] then found it on Amazon. Since I do not have a TV, we watch movies on my laptop with the strong JBL sound.
Summary: I bought mine in 2008 after a long search and they have really held up. I use them for my laptop and with my iPods around the house - on trips - and in the yard around the lawn chairs. They are compact - fold up nicely - look good - are well made. And they are pretty dang loud and have decent bass if you are in a confined space, like my kitchen. Out in the yard, these sound a little thin.
Summary: Is this the same model as I purchased three years ago? It sure looks the exact same and the way in which reviewers are describing it, it does seem to be the same model. It is a fantastic system...still going strong, great sound. I paid only $39.99 for the system which was on sale from $52.99 (I believe, I know it was not more than a $55.00 regular price).
Summary: I bought this speaker system to use in my office at work and it's perfect for that. I typically run Pandora through my phone, or occasionally use my iPod, both of which have about the same sound quality. I've never really turned it up incredibly loud, so I can't attest to how it performs when maxed out, but it provides clear sound and good bass even at lower levels. All in all, a good value.
Summary: I recently purchased my wife an iPad. One of the the things she plans to do with it is to play classical music when we travel. We both appreciate clarity and a full range, not just huge base, and certainly not tinny high octaves. This unit produces the sound we were looking for and is elegant in design to boot. We both recommend it and received it at the time expected.
Summary: Searched for a long time to find the right speakers. I am a flight attendant and was looking for something small, compact and light weight but, most of all quality! Great sleek design. I am very happy with this product!
Summary: Lots of clear sound from such a small system! I bought this system for my laptop and Ipod and the sound is wonderful on both. It won't fit in your pocket, but is small enough to stick in a laptop bag or purse with no trouble. I will repeat what others have said- that it is a mild annoyance to have to unplug the unit to close it- but for the quality of this unit, this is a non-problem. Get This! You will not be dissatisfied!
