Summary: First, the clear plastic IPod and IPhone holders do not allow the pod or phone to make complete electrical connection to the 30 pin male connector on the dock. The male 30 pin connector though holds the IPod well enough to be ok and work with the dock. The sound is good and much better than the IPod or IPhone speakers.
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 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.
Summary: Let me start by saying I have been a big fan of JBL over the last Ten years and have bought many a products by them. I have always loved the crisp sounds, quality of bass and style of their products. All for a reasonable cost. I bought a JBL Radial Docking Station about two years ago and loved the sound quality of it, I cant fault it at all. So when I decided to buy another docking station this time for the bedroom/bathroom I knew JBL would have a good range.
Excerpt: Hallo liebe Ciaogemeinschaft, vor etwa einem Monat habe ich einen Bericht über die Bose Sound Dock geschrieben, welche ich von meinen Eltern zum Geburtstag geschenkt bekommen habe. Bevor ich mir die Sound Dock zugelegt habe, habe ich aber mit dem Gedanken gespielt die JBL on Stage 2 Statt dessen an zu schaffen. Leider konnte die JBL On Stage 2 mich aber nicht überzeugen. Mehr dazu aber bitte unten.
