The Dock that turns itself off... and stays off

Porkupan "Porkupan", Amazon
11 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought the JBL OnBeat Micro dock a few days ago. It's aesthetically very nice, and produces decent sound. I could even live with its super short and inconvenient lightning connector (got an adapter, so I would be able to plug in iPhone 6 without removing it from the case).

Doesn't work with alarm apps because it shuts off

K. Newman "sound mixer", Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit in hopes that it would charge my phone and I could use it to wake up to music using the iHome app that fades in the music gradually as an alarm. Well, come to find out that if it doesn't have any sound coming into it, it shuts off after a short while.

Auto Shutoff makes it useless as wake up alarm.

Scientific Design, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought this unit to upgrade to the lightning connector and replace an older JBL unit (OnStage Micro with 30 pin connector). This newer unit shuts off and does not wake up when Iphone 5 starts playing. JBL technical support was not able to help.

Horrible Connection

kdh1, JBL
27 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this dock for my office. I had an old version that worked well with my old phone. I am sorry to say this one does not work. My phone does not connect (for charge or music playback) at least 80% of the time. I wrote to JBL and have yet to hear back from anyone.

Tom Kindle, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: Even at the lowest volume, speaker rattle is so loud that it dominates the music or whatever else is playing.
