PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The JBL OnBeat Air, despite being slightly overpriced, is still one of the more affordable AirPlay docks that offers reasonable audio performance.

Review: JBL OnBeat Air

22 May 2012
  • Excerpt: AirPlay devices typically command a premium. If you want a speaker system that uses Apple’s wireless music streaming platform to seamlessly integrate with your iTunes library and your iOS devices, you’ll usually have to cough up between $300 and $600 for something with quality sound.
  • Pros: Great entry-level AirPlay device. Easy AirPlay syncs. 3.5mm Aux In plays nice with everything. Composite video out sends little videos to the big screen. Small footprint is perfect for the desktop. Remote does full iOS menu controls: song, album, artist, volume and playback. 0 is cheap for an Air...
  • Cons: Good-but-not-great sound. Vertical movies on a docked iPad suck. Lack of a battery option puts a damper on portability.

  • Summary: The JBL OnBeat Air is a decent (though not great) compact speaker dock for iOS devices that's currently one of the more affordable AirPlay speakers on the market.
  • Pros: The, features Apple AirPlay wireless streaming in a fairly compact iPhone/iPad audio dock that swivels, holding the device in portrait or landscape position.

  • Cons: The iPad can't be rotated to landscape mode when docked, and the speaker sounds a bit thin.

JBL Onbeat air

11 September 2012
  • Summary: OnBeat Air er en praktisk holder for iPhone og iPad, og tross sin kompakte form meget stødig. På skrivebordet eller nattbordet gjør den en hyggelig jobb med å spille enkel musikk på lavt volum. Men partymusikk på høyt volum skal man ikke prøve seg på, for da begynner det å låte ille.

  • Summary: OnBeat Air er en praktisk holder til iPhone og iPad, og trods sit kompakte format ganske stabil. På skrivebordet eller natbordet gør den et godt job med at spille letfordøjelig musik på lav volumen. Men partymusik på høj volumen skal man ikke give sig i kast med, for så begynder det at lyde dårligt.
  • Pros: Kompakt, Praktisk holder, Forholdsvis billig
  • Cons: Dårlig lyd, Funktionsfattig app

JBL OnBeat Air

16 August 2012
  • Excerpt: JBL OnBeat Air için Apple'a özel üretilmiş bir ürün diyebiliriz. Benzer özelliklere sahip dock ve standları farklı markalarda da sıkça görüyoruz. Bu cihazı farklı kılan ve bir adım öne çıkaran ise AirPlay yani kablosuz bağlantı özelliği.
  • Pros: Sade ve şık tasarım, Kablosuz müzik keyfi, Yüksek ses kalitesi
  • Cons: Apple’ın yeni 19 pin bağlantı noktası için dönüştürücüsü yok
