JBL OnBeat Xtreme

PC Magazine
6 June 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.

  • 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.

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

JBL OnBeat Xtreme Bluetooth Speaker Dock

13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Yes, there’s something kitschy about the 1990’s-style “xtreme!” name, but OnBeat Xtreme is otherwise a sophisticated evolution of JBL’s earlier iPod and iPhone audio systems, with enough extra polish and class to match its price tag. As a considerably larger and more powerful version of the previously-released OnBeat , OnBeat Xtreme uses the same X-like “weave” industrial design and rotating central dock as before, but is so much better executed across the board that it...
