JBL OnBeat Micro for iPhone 5: Compact and spunky

28 February 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.

Review: JBL OnBeat Micro

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
