Don’t be fooled by size. Since this little powerhouse is a JBL speaker system, you can have faith that it delivers great JBL sound. The JBL OnBeat aWake offers just the right amount of power for your bedroom — whether you’re rocking loud or soft.

Listen to music, watch movies and play games – and do it all wirelessly. We’ve designed the JBL OnBeat aWake for your iPad, but it also works with your iPhone, iPod touch and virtually any other audio player that uses Bluetooth technology.

The HARMAN TrueStream technique is our guarantee that you will enjoy the best possible listening experience when you’re streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Because you have many options for Bluetooth connectivity, our products always use the most current and most advanced option to ensure the highest-quality sound no matter what application or source device you use.

JBL Slipstream port technology gives listeners powerful, great-sounding bass with low distortion. Whether your source is docked or streaming, you’ll experience bass that you can really feel.

The JBL OnBeat aWake’s full-range transducers provide room-filling sound. Hear clear highs and mids, plus exceptional bass – all from your tiny bedside companion.

Whether your device is Bluetooth-enabled or not, the JBL OnBeat aWake allows you to take full advantage of its incredible sound, thanks to its auxiliary-input (aux in) connection. You can use practically any digital audio device, including MP3 players, smartphones, tablets and laptop computers.

Rather than waking up to shrill sounds, you can serenely open your eyes to your favorite music. Download the free JBL AmpUp companion app, which allows you to customize your wake-up theme, choose a lullaby that helps you fall asleep to music, and access your daily calendar.

We know that everyone would like some extra shuteye when the alarm sounds, so we made it easy to reach. Smart-touch snooze controls allow you to tap the bedside table for extra sleep.

This work of beauty isn’t just for your iPad. You can use it with your iPhone and iPod touch. The JBL OnBeat aWake can dock and recharge both as well as the iPod nano and iPod classic.

There’s no need to squint in the dark – the JBL OnBeat aWake prominently displays all of your information, including the weather, time, calendar and currently playing music track, on your iPad. We’ve included easy-to-access brightness controls to help you read the integrated clock when you need a little extra light.

To combat the placement variations in one’s room and human hearing deficiencies at higher frequencies, the JBL OnBeat aWake delivers the full-range frequency response associated with exceptional sound.

JBL OnBeat aWake is rated 3.9285714285714284 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME JBL SOUND! RECERTIFIED IS THE WAY TO GO! I bought the JBL Onbeat Awake Recertified at the CRAZY LOW price of $24.99 w/ free shipping a month ago, and it's probably the best bang for my 25 bucks that I've spent in the last 2 years! Everything has worked flawlessly so far. Bluetooth is working great with iPhone, iPod nano 7th gen, and all of my Android devices, and the dock port works perfect with all of the older 30-pin devices that I've tried. The stereo sound clarity and bass is exceptional for a unit of this size. It goes fairly loud for an in home unit, too. Great for a bedroom, kitchen or back patio speaker (but it does have to be plugged in for power). I tested the alarm feature with the JBL AmpUp app, and it worked fine. Just be sure to disable the autolock within the app settings if you are going to use it as an alarm clock (alarm wasn't my main reason for purchasing, though).The display has 3 brightness settings, and in my opinion is very easy to read. I purchased separately a 30-pin to lightning adapter that supports audio, and docking now works with my lightning enabled devices. I have the JBL Pulse 2 as well, which is an outstanding portable with awesome light show, but even though it has 3 watts more power than the Onbeat Awake (16w vs. 13w), I actually prefer the sound of the Onbeat Awake while in home. It has better, stronger bass response and clearer highs. Just realize that the frequency response is 75Hz-20kHz, so it does kind of cut out some of the super low, deep bass notes, like in some Rap & Hip-Hop songs. The only thing I wish it had, which it lacks, is a remote control to control playback and volume of a docked device. That would have made this unit perfect imo, but at this price-point, I have no complaints. I love this thing so much I just had to purchase another one while they were still available at this price! And on top of it all, it's covered by Harman Audio's 1 year limited warranty, just like a brand new unit is. I worked as an Electronics Salesperson for many years and am very picky about sound quality, so if I'm happy, it must be good! You'd be a fool not to jump on an amazing deal like this if you have the opportunity! Just get one before they're gone, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Haman Audio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this to use outside when I barbecue. I have a different one and the sound is poor, especially the bass. This JBL has really clean clear sound and bass that doesn't distort. Really glad I got this and at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I saw this product advertised with a ridiculously low price tag and figured what the heck. After plugging it in and connection my iPhone I was blown away by the sound. It is ridiculously simple to use and connect to. I had it playing on Christmas day and had several people want to take it home with them, they were that impressed with the sound.

Can i connect to a TV

Asked by: RamBat
The speaker does have an AUX port so if your TV has a 3.5 mm AUX port or headphone port then you can use the speaker for your TV.

When it goes into standby it does not reactivate when the attached device reactivate.

Asked by: mkat
When the ONBEAT AWAKE is on, press the Power button to put it into the standby mode. (The clock display will dim in the standby mode.) When the ONBEAT AWAKE is in standby, press the Power button to turn it on. (The clock display will illuminate at full brightness when the unit is on.) When the ONBEAT AWAKE is in the standby mode it will automatically turn on when it detects audio playing from a Bluetooth-connected device, a docked device or when it detects wake-up alarm audio from a docked device. When the ONBEAT AWAKE is on, it will automatically enter the standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity (no audio input and no user-control operation). When the alarm is active, press the Power button to turn the alarm off. Note: When the ONBEAT AWAKE enters the standby mode it will also bring a docked device into standby mode.

It has recently been shutting down on it's own during playback. Updates?

Asked by: Sung
This usually happens when you are connecting to the Aux Input via a headphone output on an audio device. Reason being, the unit has an auto on/off feature based on audio signal. So, if you have the volume on your device turned down, and the volume on the ON BEAT AWAKE turned up, it may be shutting off because it is not seeing enough audio volume to stay on. Try turning the volume on your device up to at least 75%, and turn the volume on the ON BEAT AWAKE down, to compensate. Not only will this fix your problem, it will also sound better with less noise.

How can I make a bluetooth connection to an Android phone? It connects with my Note 4, but there is no sound! I am frustrated.

Asked by: alberthipp
You can go into your Bluetooth settings and select the XTREME settings and select ONLY the Audio option and deselect the Headset option. This will allow you to transmit audio from the phone to the speaker. Make sure that the player you are using would allow the use of bluetooth speakers.

I can not update the firmware. When i connect my iphone to dock doesn't work.

Asked by: giacomo
Usually, if it does not work when docking the iPhone, it is typically due to a damaged connector either on the iPhone or on the speaker. Check to make sure there is nothing obstructing the connection, especially inside the connection terminal in the iPhone. This is the USA site and I notice you are in Italy. If this does not solve your problem, please contact your dealer or distributor in Italy. They will be able to assist you.
