Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose who? Bought a Bose soundock 10 and was happy until finding this amazing Bose killer! Put this side by side with the Bose and played lossless iTunes files. Jbl for the win. Bose returned to Costco. Buy this and be amazed!

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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound quality, great design, compatible with apple and android systems. Overall JBL Xtreme is an incredible, must have system. First off wow! After much research with other competitors i made my decision...and believe me when I say I made the right one. Received my system today very well packaged. Out of box the color, chrome, design construction is stunning and appealing. Handheld remote stylish to compliment unit design. Built-in bluetooth and pairing between devices is effortless (both apple and android). Docking apple devices is with ease. Only thing about docking your apple product to the 30 pin port on Xtreme you need to worry about is being careful not to force application or removal of your iPod/iphone. Should anything happen to to the 30 pin port on Xtreme you will be unable to dock your apple products. However, i would assume after spending the money on this item no one will be that careless to abuse it. Now when I first connected my iPhone/ipad to unit via docking port and started to listen to my music the sound was overwhelming. I must say I underestimated how much sound the Xtreme packs. The fullness in the bass, treble, and mid range frequencies is phenomenal. When using bluetooth to connect instead of 30 pin docking port the sound stays the same. No connectivity issues or hiccups noted. Love the fact I can be in another room and still hear my music from living room while browsing the internet on ipad. In comparison to Bose sound dock 10 and BW zeppelin systems Xtreme is the way to go. JBL team that you for this product.
