Summary: The JBL On Air Wireless is a decent product but it has plenty of flaws. There's no way I would pay over $200 for this product. I was lucky enough to find it at Best Buy on clearance after looking at it for a few months. For an AirPlay speaker, if you can find it for under $175, its not a bad deal but be warned, that its not perfect. I really wanted an AirPlay speaker that also had a dock.
Summary: Bought this as a present for my daughter last week. It has the full spec. I could not find anything else that had airplay, a clock and alarm and a charging dock. Also, the price is reasonable and it looks very nice. However, I have rated this as 3 stars for the sound quality - it is quite flat. JBL have built their reputation on sound quality. I took this for granted and was totally underwhelmed.
Great speaker but doesn't AirPlay with a iPhone 4S
10 November 2011
Summary: This is a great product, I own 3x JBL On Stage IIIP's and the speaker audio quality in the JBL On Air Wireless is superb and much better. The speaker dock is great but if you are buying this as an AirPlay speaker (and you probably are as it's several hundred pounds), be aware that it doesn't work with with the iPhone 4S.
Excerpt: Having just invested in one of these, upgrading from their more junior model, I am absolutely ecstatic with this docking station. It looks wonderful and the sound quality is truly amazing. Very very clear and sharp and no longer do I have the interference that I used to have with its more junior model. Although it is rather dynamic looking, it also doesn't dominate any area where placed.
Pros: Lightweight, good looking, excellent sound quality, affordable
