The latest multimedia devices deserve the best sound. That was our intent behind the JBL® OnBeat Rumble™ wireless loudspeaker dock: floor-thumping, room-shaking sound from your iPhone 5, iPad mini and other latest-generation devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops. Because it features Bluetooth® connectivity with HARMAN TrueStream™ technology, you can use any device that’s Bluetooth-enabled and hear all of your audio with power and clarity. The dock is equipped with the Lightning connector, so you can charge your iPhone 5 and iPad mini while blasting music, watching videos, or playing games. But let’s not forget about the dock’s incredible sound – an oversized, down-firing subwoofer provides rumbling bass that you can feel in your bones. For a more intimate experience, you can use your own headphones – just plug them into the onboard headphone jack. The JBL OnBeat Rumble dock works with our free JBL® MusicFlow™ app, which empowers you to edit playlists and dial in your EQ settings, and can be used with your own favorite DJ mixer app from Apple App Store. Whether you’re using this powerful dock for music or movies, one thing is for sure: You’ll feel the rumble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent! Best quality! Small but is a giant! The bass is respected. I use without reforces on bass or Eq, flat is better. If could connected with androids, would be the champion of sellers.
