Great Sound, but frustrating to use.

  • 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. I contacted JBL and they do not make an extender so that will forever be an issue. The 2nd issue is when you power off the unit, the bluetooth does not shut off until the unit goes to sleep.
  • 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).

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

  • 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 Bluetooth, I updated to lastest firmware using the free Jbl app, which was also buggy.. And still had skipping.. And for the price (new) $$$, too much, should have been $$...
  • 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 not good enough from what I am used to.

  • 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 spelaren i sig att göra) Riktigt bra ljud och snygg design. Bra basåtergivning utan att tappa diskanten och "gröta till det".

  • Summary: + Väldigt bra ljud, kanske lite svag i mellanregistret. Går att poppa på högt, basen är väldigt bra för att komma från en så pass liten högtalare. - Bluetoothkopplingen funkar väldigt random - Går inte att få till "exakt" den volym man vill ha om man vill ha lägre volym. Volymhoppen är lite för stora.. UPDATE: Efter nästan två månaders regelbunden användning måste jag tyvärr dra ner betyget. Det som funkar dåligt är Bluetoothkopplingen.
