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).
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) $$$, too much, should have been $$...
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: + Very good sound, maybe a little weak in the midrange. Going to pop the loud, bass is very good to come from such a small speaker. - Bluetooth link works very random - Can not get to "exactly" the volume you want if you want a lower volume. Volume Hoppen is a bit too big .. Update: After nearly two months of regular use, I regret to drag down the score. What works poorly is the Bluetooth connection. There are basically 50/50 on a pairing with my iPad Air works or not.
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.
