Summary: I was looking to replace an iHome I had in the kitchen on the ledge of the windowsill. I had it above the kitchen sink and liked to use it when I did dishes. It had it for years and it was a 30 pin. I was looking for an 8 pin for my iPod Touch and also my newer iPhone. This speaker really fit the bill! Don’t let the size fool you! It is small but it has wonderful sound! I can crank this up and it sounds great! I love that it plays music and also charges your devices.
Summary: I was originally looking for a simple speaker & docking station for my iPhone 5S (like the iHome series) and I found this. The sound quality is fantastic and very loud. It's a great value, though I'm disappointed with the fact that it will not work with any type of phone case (even my thin silicone case). I have to remove the case in oder to dock the phone and play my music.
Summary: Great sound for the size, works fine with iPhone 6 Plus with Apple leather case. Very good price - cost the same or less than a good dock for the iPhone, and you get a speaker as a bonus. I was looking for an iPhone dock,most of them sell for 30-50$ without a lightning cable ,than came across this speaker, can't beat the price. For 30$ you get a charger dock with a very good portable speaker. Wish it had a Bluetooth connection.
Summary: So, my iPod Touch 5th Gen has become useless. I now have an iPhone 6 Plus 128gb and iPad Mini Retina 128gb. I just needed something to connect my iPod to for alarm clock. I do not need a case for my iPod Touch because I do not remove it. With that said, the lightning connector will not allow many cases. Be prepared to use this without a case on your device. But my iPhone 6 and 6 Plus fit on this and the sound is shockingly loud.
Excellent sound from a small package - and it charges your iPhone 6/5!

Summary: Sounds great. I had a previous version of this unit and the sound was amazing for the size. I am using this with a new iPhone 6 and it works great. It fits in the holder perfectly. It charges while it is in the holder (contrary to the instructions that specifically says it does not charge the iPhone). Charged mine to 100% while I was listening it. Same for my iPhone 5s. It's a great little speaker for a small space.
Summary: I wanted a dock for my iPhone that had a speaker so I could listen to music while my phone was charging. I do not use this as an alarm clock. I was excited when I found this product. When my package arrived, I ripped it open with glee, plugged it in, inserted my phone and turned it on. To my dismay, the music sounded no louder than when my phone plays on it's own speakers. After a few minutes, I decided to read the instructions.
Summary: I had like six speaker docks before, one of them also JBL but for my IPhone 4 (that one was $80), but this one is the best of them. Is small, sounds great, and the price is unbelievable. Most importantly and that people have not really cleared before, it works perfectly with my iPhone 6 (don't know about the iPhone 6Plus though). However, you have to take the phone out of whatever case you have, because if not the plug is not going to connect with the phone.
THE perfect gift for sound enthusiasts or friends of them. SO GOOD THIS IS!!!

Summary: It's Harmon come on. Must have for sound enthusiasts !!!!! Not super bass, but regular basis,kids and highs are Crystal clear. Any kind music.jazz,classical,rock,folk,metal anything. Just simply amazing. Sure cheap get it. Case of to fit who freaking cares. Just get the mini cord for the headphone jack if your that lazy. By them now as they are discontinued for some reason GET ONE,TWO,THREE.
Summary: I sifted through a ridiculous amount of docking stations before I finally settled on this one based on the reviews. I was skeptical due to the price compared to others, I thought maybe it would be cheap... I was terribly wrong! Unpacked this little beaut and plugged it in right away to give it a test run. The sound is absolutely phenomenal and blew me away! The bass is wonderful, sound is strong, clear, and goes pretty high.
Summary: If you want this just for playing music, grab it. Great sound for a great price. But if you need it for an alarm clock, charging the phone overnight like me, forget about this one. I don't know the reason, but the unit turns itself off after 20 mins without sound (even though it keep charging the phone) and you alarm won't come out of the JBL speakers nor the internal speakers. It's unbelievable.
