Summary: Your specs on the item said it would work on an iPod Touch 5 Gen. It DOES NOT because the pin connector is wrong. The Touch is an 8 pin and the JBL is a 32 [sic 32]? pin. I finally had to contact JBL and here are some of their comments:Please make a note of the device compatible with the unit ON STAGE 200 id.
Summary: Device will not fit my iphone 4s with a case, that's a drag. Very difficult to figure out from instructions how to set up with right adapter and little rubber piece. It took trial and error and lots of patience. Rubber piece is hard to get into adapter and adapters not numbered. Big instruction book in a ton of languages so really only one page of instruction and instructions not clear at all. I can see people getting frustrated and sending back.
Summary: Bought this for Christmas for my girlfriend. I'm an audiophile so of course I had to test it out ahead of time. Sound was amazing! Rich bass, clean crisp highs, and clear mids. This was tested with my ipod classic, mp3 players w/ included Aux cable, as well as with a Pantuoxun Bluetooth adapter (which works great for standalone 30-pin ipod docks). Unfortunately, when my gf tried it with her iphone 4 she experienced the same issues others have encountered.
Summary: I got this speaker for my husband as an upgrade, so he could use it with his ipod nano. It sounds great, but from the day we opened it the remote has not worked properly. When you pause or change the volume with the remote it begins to pause itself repeatedly every few seconds. Extremely annoying! So it works great, as long as we don't use the remote. Just an okay purchase IMO.
Summary: This was the third iPod dock that I have purchased in the last month. I returned the previous two because of sound glitches and needless to say this one had a glitch as well. The dock would randomly change songs at various points when I was listening to it. The first couple of times I thought that I accidentally hit the remote, but after about five times within the span of ten minutes I knew it was a glitch.
"Good speakers, but bad remote and customer support."

Pros: Good sound from speakers.
Cons: The remote for my speakers broke within 48 hours of my buying the product. When I called on a Sunday for help with my broken remote, the guy who answered told me that no one could help me that day, and that I would have to call back the next day.
Summary: The JBL on stage 200ID looks like a mini flying saucer. Wrapped in light grey fabric with glossy black finish, the flat, long device looks absolutely beautiful. Both the on time 200ID and the 400ID are too thick to look gracious, but unfortunatey, looks is all the advantage the 200ID has over its two more expensive counterparts. The on stage 200ID gets loud, but not loud enough to fill a room with sound before the sound starts to get distorted.
Summary: I've had this speaker system for almost a year now. I needed one that I could use with my iPhone... I actually use it at work at my desk. Here are the drawbacks I've found since owning it: - the main thing is that there is no indicator at what volume level you are currently at. I never really thought that this was something I needed, but using it at work, I like to see what volume level I am on... it would also help with some of the below issues...
Summary: The sound quality is not all that impressive given its price. The remote buttons are virtually blank unless viewed in bright light and the on button in the back is not easy to find by touch reaching over from the front. Frankly, I expected much better and, as I discovered afterward, better is out there at the same price or slightly less. JBL's best days are behind it.
Summary: This object is a good sound-speaker, but I order it for last Christmas and when I gave it to the person in question at first loved it but when we looked at it for the second time we saw a stain of some kind of grass... This stain doesn't come off... It was a disappointment because of that... If it wouldn't have this stain would be perfect.
