JBL OnBeat Micro for iPhone 5: Compact and spunky

CNET
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Offering surprisingly decent sound for its small size, the JBL OnBeat Micro makes for a good little desktop or bedside speaker and charging station for iPhone 5 owners.
  • Pros: The JBL OnBeat Micro is a compact speaker dock for Lightning-based iPhones and iPods. It delivers very good sound for its small size, and has a USB port for charging other mobile devices (and playing audio from them) and an auxiliary input for connecting to a PC. It also has a battery-powered option for mobile use.
  • Cons: You'll have to remove everything but the slimmest cases in order to dock your device; you only get about 5 hours of power from four AAA batteries; you can't play music from the docked device while a second one is charging via USB.

JBL OnBeat Micro Lightning Speaker and Dock for iPhone 5 Review

Chip Chick
12 March 2013
  • Summary: We’re ecstatic to finally have an iPhone 5 charger that doesn’t leave our device laying on a surface. Considering this is just round one of speaker docks, we’re extremely satisfied and impressed with the JBL OnBeat. Even though the audio quality is not amazing, it’s still very good and the features and sleek appearance make up for it. We love that it fits iPhone 5 with thin cases too.
  • Pros: Great Size and Design, Doesn’t move around surface, Simple, USB port, Aux port, Can run on batteries, Loud, Fits iPhone with thin case, Audio lacks warmth, Distortion at loud volumes, Gets confused when there’s both a docked iOS device and a USB iOS device, No rechargeable batteries, Won’t fit iPhone with thicker cases
  • Cons: Great Size and Design, Doesn’t move around surface, Simple, USB port, Aux port, Can run on batteries, Loud, Fits iPhone with thin case, Audio lacks warmth, Distortion at loud volumes, Gets confused when there’s both a docked iOS device and a USB iOS device, No rechargeable batteries, Won’t fit iPhone with thicker cases

JBL OnBeat Micro Review

gadgetmac.com
21 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Apple's recent transition over to the superior Lightning connector resulted in quite a few now obsolete 30-pin dock connector accessories and frustrated early adopters. JBL faithfully beat everyone to the punch in releasing the world's first portable Lightning speaker dock. JBL's OnBeat Micro is a smallish speaker dock which features a set of powerful speakers for room-filling stereo sound, and a built-in Lightning connector that will work with the iPhone 5 as well as...

Expert Review

GeekToys
5 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Kiedy we wrześniu ubiegłego roku firma Apple oficjalnie zaprezentowała nowy iPhone 5, w branży audio zawrzało. O ile bowiem sprzęt współpracujący z wcześniejszymi modelami iPhone’a, wyposażonymi w złącze 30-pinowe, mógł produkować każdy, to w przypadku nowego modelu, który zapoczątkował generację z maleńkim, ośmiopinowym złączem Lightning, Apple zarezerwowało sobie prawo selekcji producentów współpracujących z nim urządzeń.

Review: JBL OnBeat Micro

Computer!Totaal
24 April 2013
  • Summary: De OnBeat Micro van JBL is een uitstekende optie als je voor weinig geld een betrouwbaar speaker-dock voor je iPhone 5 zoekt. Het apparaat laat zich kinderlijk simpel bedienen en de geluidskwaliteit is degelijk te noemen, vooral wanneer je het ding op een slaap- of studeerkamer gebruikt. De functionaliteit van de Micro was echter een stuk groter geweest wanneer het Bluetooth ondersteunde of er telefoongesprekken mee gevoerd konden worden.
  • Pros: Tijdloos design, Eenvoudige bediening, Prima geluidskwaliteit
  • Cons: Geen Bluetooth, Matig volume, Geen gespreksoptie

Lightning — в массы. Обзор портативной акустики JBL OnBeat Micro

5 March 2013
  • Conclusion: В итоге нам лишь остается резюмировать очевидное. Во-первых, JBL OnBeat Micro оказывается достаточно удобной в использовании. Эта компактная и относительно недорогая система оснащена разъемом Lightning, что на ненасыщенном рынке является весомым плюсом. Интерфейс позволяет прослушивать музыку и одновременно подзаряжать устройство. А для зарядки всех остальных аппаратов предусмотрен классический USB сзади. Во-вторых, в данном случае мы имеем вполне приличный звук.
