Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound. I purchased my first OnBeat Xtreme 6 months ago and was immediately blown away by the amazing sonic ability of this unit. I should state right up front that when it comes to music I am more than a casual listener. I've spent many thousands of dollars on my main music system (much to my wife's continuing consternation), so it came as a pleasant surprise to find a portable device that could produce such clarity and authority across the entire sound spectrum. I am currently using an iPhone 4S to drive the OnBeat and most of my music is encoded into MP4 Apple Lossless format. Rather than waffle on I'll summarise the good and bad of the OnBeat Xtreme. The Good: - Exceptional sound quailty! The better the recording, the better the sound you get out, but even average MP3s sound good. I can't get over just how great this amazing player sounds. To my ears it really is fantastic. - Excellent bass weight and scale given the size of this unit - Charges iPod/iPhone/iPad etc while docked - Multiple connection options (Docking, Bluetooth, Aux cable) - Plays loud without audible distortion - Plugs directly into the wall without a chunky A/C adaptor - Handle for easy transportability The Not-So Good - Takes a second or two to detect an input when starting up, meaing you miss the very start of the track. - No visual means of determining which EQ setting is selected, unless you install the JBL App onto your phone. Only the music setting is really useful in my opinion, so they could have omitted the EQ settings altogether to prevent this issue - Shiny chrome trim is a total magnet for dust, fingerprints etc. The shortcomings of the JBL are more annoying that real deal breakers in my opinion, and more than offset by the reward of the sound it produces. I have now purchased a second unit, which I keep at work, and my sister has also bought one on my recommendation as loves it. For those who appreciate high quality sound, and don't have thousands to spend, or dedicated listening room, I HIGHLY recommend the OnBeat Xtreme. Note: I found the bass a little heavy when using the "flat" EQ setting in my iPhone, and set it to "Bass Reduce" which sounds better to me, but it's my personal taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever! I did not expect that good sound when i ordered this product, it was breathtaking. I was expecting "just another iPhone speaker" to have in the kitchen. The Onbeat Extreme is now my favourite speaker in every room, even outside when im hosting a party.You have too set your speaker to the mode with most bass and your jaw will drop. I have a very expensive home stereo/home cinema but my new favourite in the house is the Onbeat Extreme. I bring the Onbeat out in the garden and it still sounds great, you can easily use it as the center of your party, it will give loads of bass and play very loud before any distortion appears.The amount of bass it plays is the absolute best feature. It is so easy to use that i use it every day with my spotify on iPhone. The lack of lightning connector was not a problem, i just bought the adapter from Apple, and you are also able to use bluetooth. The iphone app is not that good, it only plays iTunes music and has problems changing sound picture. I prefer not to use the app and only use my spotify either via docking or bluetooth. The remote is a bit large but it has all the functions you need and has very good range. When my phone or pad is charging i always use the remote, it is the perfect companion for The Onbeat Extreme. Because this product suprised me that much i am actually looking to replace my Bowers and wilkins home theatre with a brand new JBL home cinema setup. I have to say The Onbeat is a great ambassador product for JBL.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great unit when it works I love the sound coming from this unit but it has problems playing music via Bluetooth. It goes to into standby mode every 10 minutes when playing music from any Bluetooth device. I was told it was an internal problem & they sent me a new unit but after 2 months the new unit is doing the same thing. Looks like bad hardware. For an item is that costs $500 dollars it should last longer then a year without issues

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awsome sound but no digital audio input Its has one of best sound quality i have come across. Only issue i found was there is no digital input hence losses out connectivity from latest devices which usually have only digital audio out like current generation TVs
