Summary: When I replaced my iPhone 4, I was disappointed that my JBL OnStage (which was FABULOUS from a sound and charging aspect) no longer worked. I tried the cheap route, purchasing an adapter (on 3 different occasions) (sold here) that would allow me to use the OnStage with the iPhone 5. Each worked for a while (without the case), then I got the dreaded error message re: incompatibility. So I sucked it up and purchased the "mini" version of the OnStage -- the OnBeat.
Summary: A reasonable product that provides good sound quality at a decent price. The sound is good but not great but does get the job done and is a bit unidirection and I wised it had a more surround capable quality, but for the price you can't really complain.
Summary: I purchased this because of the lightning connector. It is a small unit. I like the ability to play my music without having to take off the phone case. Sound wise--I've heard better. It seems tinny and pretty much lacks bass--at least to me. All in all, and for the price, it's a decent unit.
Summary: I like this speaker, the sound is clear, nice bass. I have changed phone covers and still I have take the cover off, this is my only beef. I will more likely be returning this unit because it's just a hassle to take the cover off each time. It works well with the USB cord. Still I would like to dock it and use the USB cord for my Ipad. I was hoping to find a good cover for my phone and be able to dock to this unit.
Summary: I wasn't quite sure what I thought right out of the gate on these speaker -- I think we always want so much out of our electronics, and sometimes we may be aiming to high (or too low, sometimes). Anyway, it wasn't instant "OMG" I LOVE THIS THING. But each time I carted it around the house to accompany me with music as I cleaned, as I got ready for the day, etc., I started to realize what a big, full sound I was enjoying, and really being lifted up by the music.
Summary: This little speaker is wonderful for our uses. We wanted a small speaker dock for our iPod Nano (7th gen) that we could use in the bedroom at night for white noise. It roughly measures 7 1/2" W x 5 1/2" D x 2 3/4" T; the device is rectangular not square as the description suggests. The dock connects to your device through the lightning port.
Summary: UPDATED: Replacement unit works fine with 7th Generation iPod Nano (first unit was apparently defective). ORIGINAL: 7th Generation iPod Nano reported "Device not Supported" when plugged in. Product description claims iPod Nano support, but apparently not for playing through the lighting connector nor charging through the lightning connector. Perhaps we received a defective unit?
Summary: I don't normally write reviews but this JBL made by Harmon deserves credit. This little unit packs some punch, though I wouldn't call it "full" sound but what do you expect from something at this size. I am sure the engineers tried to find a happy medium range sound to play different genres of music or talk radio. The only thing I think it lacks is some bass, a little more punch in the bass dept. would have given it 5 stars. Other than that, it's well worth the money.
