Solid Unit

A, Crutchfield
5 February 2013
  • Summary: Great sounding unit, better than I expected out of such small speakers. Got it for the lighting connector but ended up using mostly the bluetooth connection, it works and sounds very good.
  • Pros: Great sound
  • Cons: Could have more options. Can't dock with the cover I use.

Great Sound, but frustrating to use.

NoRegrets78, Crutchfield
5 February 2013
  • Summary: The sound alone makes me not want to exchange this for anything else, but this dock is far from perfect. The lightning connector doesn't work with any case, so you are stuck removing your case if you want to be able to charge while using this dock.
  • Pros: Amazing sound, firmware upgradeable.
  • Cons: Lightning connector too short to work with any case, bluetooth does not shut off when unit is powered off, unable to pair multiple devices and switch between them (family shared dock).

Great system

Audio junkie, Crutchfield
26 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a great system for the price. I've tried both Bose and Sonos docking systems and the quality of sound is amazing. The highs and mid range frequencies are extremely well represented without sounding thin and metallic.
  • Pros: Highs were very crisp and sharp. Mid range frequencies within the vocal range and acoustics were phenomenal and the low end frequencies were present down the the 80hz range. The controls were easy enough that even a child could operate this device. Only six buttons. This is great for leisure enjo...
  • Cons: While the sound is powerful and clear, the lows end frequencies could be a little deeper and a little better represented. There is a bass boost button but that would mot be neccessary if an adequate equilizer were available. I also feel that a remote should have be included but I can make due by ...

Good sound; Everything else is lacking

Herbert F., Crutchfield
23 January 2013
  • Summary: First, the pros. It looks good. Sleek, rounded, stylish. It sounds good. Now, the cons. Everything else. Only works with the very latest crop of iPods and even then the dock doesn't connect well and is too delicate. There is no remote. The controls are hard to read.

JBL Docks do not work with iPhone in a CASE

rocketegg, Crutchfield
20 January 2013
  • Summary: JBL dropped the ball on this one, you have to remove your iPhone from ANY case before docking. They made the lightning connector too short to reach the phone even in the slimmest case.
  • Pros: Great quality if the phone would fit.
  • Cons: Have to remove your phone case to dock.

Jbl on beat Venue Lt. It's ok...

Frank G, Crutchfield
22 December 2012
  • Summary: Got 1 from outlet store, the scratch n dent unit was in pretty good physical shape. Plugged in my iphone 5 and fired it up.. The sound was decent, but lacking crisp treble that I'm used too, power was good, gets pretty loud, but distorts at higher volume, also had a problem with skipping on...
  • Pros: Bluetooth, sleek design, volume level. Lightening dock.
  • Cons: Price for what u get, bass just ok, buggy firmware , no remote, distorts at higher levels, and for having dedicated tweeters, the highs are below average, u can adjust that in the few presets, but still not good enough. Also not portable, but for me the reason I sent it back is that the sound is ...

Lord Vader, Prisjakt
8 July 2015
  • Summary: RIktigt bra tryck och mycket god ljudkvalité. Enda nackdelen är att jag skulle vilja ansluta fler BT enheter, inte bara en... Har inget annat att anmärka på, bara positivt!

Acceptabel

7echnoid, Prisjakt
22 July 2014
  • Summary: + Riktigt riktigt bra ljud, speciellt om man spelar på lite högre volymer + Snygg design + Stabil lightning-docka som också är infällbar - Sänker ringvolymen på telefonen om man spelar musik via bluetooth - För stora steg när man ska ändra volymen - Appen känns ganska meningslös (har iofs inget med...
