Summary: This JBL Micro II delivers some very good and surprising sound, despite measuring only about 3.5 inches in diameter at a height of 1.5 inches (and putting out 3 watts of power), with crisp highs, a very nice mid range and a rich, not overpowering, bass. I have connected this with my iPod nano 7th Gen and my MacBook Pro (with a very wide selection of music genres) and I am quite pleased with its performance.
Summary: The speakers are very nice for the price. If their is any changes that could be made that would be a little more bass or a slight more volume however for everyday normal use, especially in a closed enviorment they are great. I am not disappointed.
Summary: I bought the JBL On Tour speakers to use for my traveling massage therapy business. The price was under $40, so I didn't expect the absolute best speaker system, and I wasn't looking to use it in my home as a stereo replacement. Its sound is great for its little size, and works well with my ipod nano and a portable CD player. Just what I was looking for; fits my needs almost perfectly.
Summary: I used to have the Logic 3 speakers for the PSP but I found them a bit big to be lugging around. The JBL on Tour Plus is a much more compact and better looking option with similar sound capabilities. I might give the Logic system the nod in terms of lows but to be truthful neither unit is going to put out thumping base. The JBLs definitely have clearer sound and much less distortion at higher volume.
Summary: overall this is a great small portable speaker setup. I use it at my desk with a Creative Zen and because of the design I can hang it underneath the shelf on an existing lip in my cubicle. sound is great and can get pretty loud when needed and the volume control is sensitive enough to play quietly at work. This also serves double duty as a louder alternative to the tiny speakers in my Laptop and it does a good job at filling the room.
Summary: This is a very nice product: stylish, excellent portability, can be used with 4 AAA batteries or plugged and there is also a nice case for when it's not in use. At a first glance I couldn't find the battery place: you need to move the middle part of the rubber beneath (according to the drawn arrow) and then open the cover that is all along one side. The sound is sharp and powerful, although basses are not for high expectations (the dimension counts).
Summary: These little JBL speakers are very worth the money. I tried other small speakers, Altec Lansing Orbit (difficult, mono) and Philips egg-shaped SBA1500 (tinny). The JBL beats them both hands down. Positives: good sound, volume controls + mute, nice looking (looks a bit like a flask when closed), power cord and storage bag included. Negligible Negatives: connectors are in an odd place, underneath the cover in the back. No place to stow the power cord.
Summary: Got it with $39.99 from Amazon. Agree with most of reviews that the speaker is small but it gives out clear and powerful sound that has no problem to fill in a 20x20 room. The bass is kind of weak but that is expected given its small size. And you can improve the bass with the EQ on your MP3. The small size make it's pretty portable. Yes, the pouch can hold the speaker only, but I use 4 AAA rechargeable batteries. So there is no need for me to carry around the AC plug.
Great sounding portable speaker for your Ipod or laptop
7 January 2008
Summary: Weighs less than a pound. Measures 7" x 3.5" x 1.4" Comes with an AC adapter Requires 4 "AAA"s if not using Ac adapter Pros: -Loud enough for it size. Decent sound and base. Certainly louder than my Creative TravelSound 400 Portable Speaker System. -Love the slide cover design -Sleek looking. -Unlike the Creative Travelsound, the speakers have grills to protect it. -Rubber footing prevents it from sliding off the table.
Summary: I ordered these speakers as one of the "Deal of the Day" items last week. I've been wanting something like this because I love listening to my ipod while I work around the house, but I can't stand having the headphones on. Try cleaning the tub with the cords dangling everywhere! So, with the price being right I ordered these speakers, fully expecting a much bigger unit. When the box arrived, I was dismayed at the packaging.
