Summary: I am now on my second OnBeat Xtreme and unfortunately it is now doing what the first one was, which is failing to connect with my iPad. Amazon did an awesome job replacing my first one promptly and with ease however less than 2 months of having this dock it is now having the same issue that the first one had after only a week or so.
Summary: i read that the OnBeat Xtreme looks like it should be on a Klingon bridge, so i took a better look! the jbl eon self powered 15" monitors i owned for years were awesome, but i didn't want those in my living room. the Xtreme is as good as it gets for sound reproduction at this price point, and better than some that are more expensive. i'm impressed with the quality of the blue tooth connection also, a very clean signal.
Summary: Excellent speaker system for your ipod/ipad, I am overwhelmed with the quality of sound, good low and high frequency ranges just fit for my family room ambiance , not to mention the awesome design is perfect for any small to mid-size area at home, thank you JBL/Harman
Summary: I love the sound coming from these speaker and for several months it worked great until it no longer would play music via Bluetooth without going into stand-by mode every ten minutes. I called customer support & they replaced the unit with a new one but after only 2 months of using the replacement unit it does the same thing. They said they would send me a unit this time but because I'm over the 1 year warranty if this happens to the second replacement I'm out of luck.
Summary: +Rich, full sound +handles high volumes without distortion +fills a 40'x40' outdoor area just fine +love the remote capabilities and bluetooth features It exceeded my expectations...and no drawbacks come to mind.
Summary: the sound quality is amazing however the speaker turn themselves off alot! Ill be listening to a song and all the sudden they just turn themselves off. You just walk back over and turn them on but still an annoying problem with a speaker set I paid almost $600 for lol. I have yet to have the quality of speaker from any other company as far as performance and I love the sound so much I dont mind dealing with the defective product.
Summary: Purchased this player to replace an older JBL unit. Always liked the JBL sound on the older unit but because of the iPod connector weakness of design, that connector ultimately failed. All attempts to repair the old JBL were to no success even though I have a lot of experience in electronic repair. The cost of the OnBeat Xtreme were off putting to start but reviews seemed strong so ultimately we took the plunge and have now had this unit for about a month or so.
i don't have an apple device it works great via bluetooth

Summary: if your looking for a great sounding speaker...this is the one i have it hooked up to my pc so we enjoy it off the pc as well as via Bluetooth & my son has an iPhone that he uses with the dock...love it...
Summary: I was thinking about getting the BOSE ipod/ipad speaker, but after reading th reviews about the bass response, and seperations, I tried the Onbeat Extreme. Well, for something to listen to my ipod playlists while cleaning the house, or working on stuff for work, I could not be happier. This unit will serve well for my back yard bbqs......
