  • Conclusion: VerdictI absolutely love the way this dock comes together as the ultimate sound system for an iOS device. For a device that is capable of doing so much, the OnBeat Xtreme is fairly uncomplicated. This makes it just as user-friendly as some of the lower-range docks. Also, JBL has been known for its superior sound quality, so you know you are getting a decent product.

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

  • Excerpt: 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.

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

Digitaltrends
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

  • Summary: While it's on the expensive side, JBL's OnBeat Xtreme is one of the best-sounding iPhone/iPad docks we've heard--and it has built-in Bluetooth and speakerphone capabilities.
  • Pros: The, offers excellent performance for an iPhone/iPad speaker dock, with detailed sound and good, tight bass that can fill a fairly large room. It also has built-in Bluetooth for wireless streaming, speakerphone capabilities, a video output, an RF remote (with 30-foot range), and a pass-through USB connection for computers that allows you to sync a docked iPod/iPhone/iPad with iTunes on your computer.
  • Cons: At $500, it costs as much as an iPad. The eye-catching design may not appeal to some people.

  • Summary: D ocking stations are an amazing piece of equipment. Just a few years back mini-components used to rule the roost. They still do but to a certain limit only. Docking stations however, are the new mini-components of the future. They feature just the right amount of elements to make it a perfect home-entertainment device.
