Choose something else. Obsolete when it was new, even more so now.

Pilgrim, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: The design and technology this uses was obsolete when it was new (in early 2011), and it's even more obsolete now. There are many better options. Pros: - It's a nice radio with a real antenna, so it picks up FM stations well, including some harder to get stations. - The sound is reasonably good. Cons: - It uses only B or G wireless. Hello, Year 2000!

Looks Great but only worked a short time

Werner Straub, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: This looked and worked great for a few days. After 3 days Air Play stopped functioning. This seems to be the subject of many similar reviews. Would not buy again until this problem is sorted out and reviews improve.

Not Great

Steve Agorastos, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: Previous model was much better. This one constantly restarted itself. It will reboot every day at least 5 times. The time also is not displayed always. Sound is on par with previous models.

Half-baked all around

Alex Dodd, Amazon
6 July 2012
  • Summary: I really wanted to love this product. I have never had much experience using an AirPlay product before and I was eager to use it in my Mac-laiden household. Unfortunately there are few positives to share about this JBL unit. First and foremost, audio quality is merely adequate. Highs are bright and well reproduced, I'm sure thanks to the recently sized tweeter that is concealed under the snooze button properly positioned up top.

Sounds good, overpriced for quality.

David "David", Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Good sound quality, simple design, looks nice. Cons: Not user-friendly, overpriced, not portable. A few things to consider if you're thinking of buying this. First, there is no battery back up in the unit, so if you unplug it from the AC adapter your settings will reset. I know it's made to be stationary, but this can get annoying if you plan on moving it from room to room.

Some nice features but flawed by mediocre sound and high price

James Tepper ""Are we there yet"", Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: The JBL On Air Wireless is a clock radio with an iPod/iPhone dock connector. It also has an auxiliary input for use with non-Apple MP3 players, but make no mistake, this is primarily designed for use with Apple products. One of the strongest features is the eponymous "On Air" feature that allows one to stream content from an iTunes library on a remote computer via almost any WiFi network. This can be controlled directly from the base unit or with the included remote.

For the expensive price, I don't love it

HalfGeek, Amazon
20 October 2011
  • Summary: I've been having bad luck finding a good sound system for my iPhone. And this clearly isn't it. Yes, it's better than the last system I reviewed (click my name), which was nearly half the price - that one was terrible - but this one, for a lot more money with a great brand name is just so-so. Maybe it's the nature of the beast, but I swear my music sounds better at times coming out of my laptop than it does these devices. First off, the device is quirky.

29 July 2011
  • Summary: Save your money and wait for something better. They will come along. This if 1970's clock radio sound for $350.
  • Pros: Compact, good eye-catching looks.
  • Cons: Serious distortion, complete absence of bass, non-protable.

Dead

c easdown, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: I was looking forward to this item and was very surprised that it was defect and would not turn on at all. This always worries me and I have learnt to stay away from products that do not work first time so sent back for refund rather than replacement Shame it had all the functionality (in theory) I wanted

Air rubbish

Franky, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: Sound just fine for my kitchen, however AirPlay is rubbish plays about 2 song then cuts off sometimes Dos'nt even connect in the first place, also even when playing the radio the screen goes white and you can't control it at all so I have to unplug/replug it again to start up again, looks stunning, but this is the same for every single jbl on air it's seems to be a software problem which they haven't released a update for :( just guess they don't care about there...
