Summary: Sound is much better than I expected with this little guy. The bass especially is impressive. My main complaints (why I gave it a 4 instead of 5) was that I have to remove my case each time I put it into the connector (I knew that already from previous reviews but it still is a pain) and that the plug to the outlet has an additional little adapter that you have to connect. If you lose that, you are S.O.L... But overall, happy with the purchase.

Summary: Great Sound, charging and volume control with option to be portable. Yes if you have a case on your device it will not fit on the lightning ort on the top. but the trick to this is, there is a usb port on the back you can connect your phone with and have all the same functions as the top lightning port so it even works with my iPad. I ordered 2, one for my wife and one for me.

Summary: JBL's official slap in the face to people with the audacity to protect their $600 phone investment with a case. Gasp! You want to put a protective case on your iPhone 5? The tiny nub that is supposedly the lightning connector is evidently their way of telling you they think protecting your phone with ANY sort of case, even the most minimal possible, is ridiculous. The ONLY reason this gets 3 stars is because for the size it sounds amazing....
Definitely works with iPhone 6 (4.7 inch), likely also iPhone 6 Plus

Summary: This will not be a full review. I just wanted to plainly state some information that I'm sure quite a lot of people may find useful at the moment, and that I wish had been comprehensively addressed in either the product information or a review. This unit is a perfect and ample fit for the iPhone 6 (4.7 inch). It supports it well and there is well over half an inch of space still on either side of the phone when docked.
Surprisingly excellent--wish my phone fit on it with the case on, though!

Summary: This was certainly a nice surprise. For this thing's size, and what it costs, the sound quality is great. No, it probably won't work if your phone is in a case, sadly. Other than that, it's all stars. For instance, it's got a USB port in back so you can plug your phone into that. I thought it would only charge, but much to my surprise, it outputs audio that way, too. So, I don't have to take it out of its case; I can just plug it in.
This little thing works better than my wife expected

Summary: This little thing works better than my wife expected. She saw the size of it and didn't think that it would sound as good as it does or even have any real volume to it. Well it does have a lot of volume and sounds real good for it's size. She uses it about every day and couldn't be happier. She even thanked me for the research I did to find something like this for her and said this was a good find.
Summary: I'm listening to it now...it is fine. The item is well made. Made in China of course but very well made. Comes with power cord/adaptor to plug in wall. Can take 4 AAA batteries for portable use. Has USB connection and headphone connection on back. Top has on/off button and volumn button. Very simple. This is not bluetooth or wireless. There is a pair of 1.5 inch mid-range speakers in front and a bass port on back.
Decent speaker, decent sound, doesn't work well with phone cases

Summary: Decent speaker with decent sound, especially for the price. My main issue with it is that the design clearly forgot to take into account the fact that most users keep their phone in a case, means that you have to either remove the case before using or alter your case. I was able to do the latter by removing a small section of the case at the bottom that won't impact the protective nature of the case, but others may not be able to do this.
