  • Excerpt: Like the Bayan Audio 7, JBL's Onbeat Xtreme speaker dock pumps out 120W of thumping tunes from your iPhone or iPad, but you can use other devices too, courtesy of a built-in Bluetooth connection. Which should you go for? Check out what we made of them both in the group test video above.

JBL Onbeat Xtreme speaker system combines unique look, excellent sound, frustrating controls

24 May 2012
  • Excerpt: (1 items) JBL’s $600 OnBeat Xtreme is a Bluetooth-enabled, dock-cradle speaker system for the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Now, one of the first things we like to do when we review a speaker system is describe how the thing looks. In this case, though, I’m going to just direct you to the photos associated with this review—the OnBeat Xtreme looks like its own thing, and it’s nearly impossible to describe in words.

JBL OnBeat Xtreme

PC Magazine
15 May 2012
  • Conclusion: A top performer, the JBL OnBeat Xtreme is a very powerful wireless Bluetooth streaming speaker system with the ability to dock, charge, and sync iPads, iPods, and iPhones.
  • Pros: Streams audio wirelessly via Bluetooth. Strong audio performance. Powerful bass response with no distortion at high volumes. Docks iPad in vertical or horizontal mode—also docks iPods and iPhone. Acts as a speakerphone for incoming calls on iPhone. Syncs iOS devices with USB connected computers.
  • Cons: Expensive. Visual design isn't for everyone. EQ settings are unnecessary, can't be turned off.

Review: JBL OnBeat Xtreme Dock

Sound & Vision Magazine
11 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Here's a product that had three strikes with me before I ever heard it. First there's the name, which seems more appropriate for a Frito-Lay product. Then there's the lineage: JBL's smaller, less-expensive docks never impressed me. Last, Maroon 5 appears in the ads. What, I ask rhetorically, would the creators of "Moves Like Jagger" know about sound quality?

JBL OnBeat Xtreme Review

3 March 2012
  • Excerpt: We’ve always had a healthy respect for JBL’s professional audio products. It has consistently built rugged, high-performance PA speakers and monitors for over 60 years and remains a favored brand of many a musician and sound engineer to this day. Its consumer audio division, on the other hand, has had its share of ups and downs.
  • Pros: Fantastic sound quality both docked and wireless, Easy Bluetooth pairing, Excellent remote, Solid build quality, Landscape mode for iPhone or iPod
  • Cons: EQ options are not necessary, JBL “OnBeat” app not necessary, Speakerphone sound quality not great
