Worthless as wakeup alarm clock

SteveD, JBL
18 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought it mainly to use it as a alarm clock. Since the unit goes to sleep to save energy and cannot be woken by the iphone this does not work. For some reason cannot connect with a macbook air via bluetooth, which is another problem for me.

Speaker works perfectly, app doesn't work at all.

Carmen, JBL
5 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Speaker works perfectly, but the app doesn't work at all... The moment your phone locks, the alarm doesn't go off anymore. If there would be one update on the app, this would be a great speaker!

Will not work with my Android

Dadsgift, JBL
21 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I was so excited to get a JBL product. :) I had an IPhone, and onbeat worked well. I recently got a new Galaxy s4 and the onbeat will not work at all. EVEN BLUETOOTH will not work, what a disappointment! :( The JBL Ampup app is a disappointment as well. The alarm clock function requires the app to be running and is confusing at best. The alarm clock should be part of the onbeat unit. The JBL Ampup also conflicted with my Iphone music player.
