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.

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?

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.
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...
