Good but...

P-Town Mama, Amazon
6 April 2015
  • Summary: The sound is great. Two problems: my phone won't sit down far enough to charge with most phone cases. It needs a lot of clearance on the sides of the charging port. I also wish it automatically turned on if you turn Pandora on. You have to turn the speaker power on every time.

NOT case friendly AT ALL

SF "This would be funnier if it weren't happe..., Amazon

  • 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...

Not bad, but there are better options out there

  • Summary: Sound is good, but unit does not power on automatically when Play button is pushed on iPhone/iPod, volume always resets to mid-level after it is powered off or goes to sleep, and volume adjustment increments are too large (i.e., can't make small adjustments to volume).

Decent speaker, decent sound, doesn't work well with phone cases

G. Ingersoll, Amazon

  • 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.

OK for the money...

  • Summary: My daughter uses her phone to blue tooth to a sound box like this all the time. We got her this one for XMAS, but she said it was just OK; not great. We sent it back and got a more expensive one; the JBL on-beat Venue LT which was twice as expensive and 5 times better sounding.

It's what I expected but...

W. Kroger, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: Not even the thinest phone cover can be on to plug your iPhone 5/5s and it sucks to have to take off my phone case every time. Otherwise, sound, size lived up to my expectations.

Works great with our latest generation iPod Touch (with thin case) but the AC Brick is *HUGE*

Looks promising but should be skipped for consideration

25 July 2013
  • Summary: For the price you'd think the product would be rock solid. In the month's time of having it and playing it loud a handful of times (I mostly use it for low background music while working) the speakers have developed that blown rattle and static even at low volume.

Works as expected

  • Summary: Be careful if you have a case of any thickness, as it likely won't fit on the charger. Sound is great.

Doesn't work with an Otterbox case on the phone

Karin Weinert, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this in hopes to finally have a lightning speaker dock to use on my desk at work. It sounds great, but it won't work with my case on. I'll keep it and use it at home on the deck, but for work when I am constantly picking it up off the dock, I need something where I won't have to take my...
