Summary: The JBL OnBeat Xtreme produces a room-filling sound with an amazing depth. It is a reasonable portable iDock with plenty of connectivity options, including the iPod/iPad/iPhone dock, Line in and Bluetooth.
Summary: It is a great speaker, BUT after 2 months it stopped charging the ipad while it is sitting on the speaker. Very frustrating. There is no way to get ahold of anybody to get some help. So I would probably not recommend buying it. There is probably just as good of other options out there.
Summary: the onbeat is almost all i had hoped for. the sound is great (five stars for sound!) and it also functions as an ipad stand. i used it to listen to music, the radio (over the internet) and to watch movies.
Summary: I just purchased the JBl Onbeat Xtreme. The bass is much better than most of the similar products and the overall quality of the sound is excellent. I wish I had bought two of them. The only con is the docking connection which can be a bit finicky. The bluetooth works quite well.
Summary: Last summer I must have spent two months reading review after review trying to decide what sound dock to get for my iPhone. I narrowed it down to two choices: the Bose Sounndock 10 and the JBL OnBeat Xtreme. I decided to go with the JBL OnBeat Xtreme because I thought bluetooth was a better option.
Summary: This has even better clarity than an older Harmon Kardon Go play speakers. The only minor and it is minor, is that they do not pick up bluetooth sources automatically and needs a button pushed on base unit to complete pairing.
