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.
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.
Excerpt: Ipods don't have speakers,right? Right. So if you and a friend wanted to watch a music video, a You Tube video, whatever the case,you both can watch together without either one hogging the the ear phones. Simply plug it in the ipod,turn the power on and BAM!!
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.
Summary: I love these speakers. I've owned a JBL On Tour for almost two years until it broke due to repeated accidental yanking of the cord, but I bought a replacement because it looks slick, it sounds good for its size, and can be had for half the "normal" price if you search hard enough.
Summary: I am not sure if you can buy this JBL product any longer. This little speaker does a great job. It will not get so loud so as to drive you out of a room but it does a great job and travels very well.

Summary: Okay, they're not tiny-tiny but certainly travel size. The case is about the size of a hardback book and easy to pack in the suitcase. This was recommended to me by a sound engineer from Harmon Kardon (a friend) and he was right--this is one powerful set of speakers for the size!
Summary: I've owned these speakers for a year and a half now and have never had a problem with them. I love the option which allows for AAA batteries or straight DC connection. The sound is good enough for anything I need and will fill up a good sized room.
