Introducing the JBL OnBeat™ Mini, the world’s first portable speaker dock with a Lightning connector for the iPad mini, iPad (4th generation), iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation) and iPod nano (7th generation). It features two JBL® full-range transducers and built-in DSP (digital signal processing) that combine to deliver dynamic, space-filling sound in a compact package. Perfectly portable for music here, there and everywhere, the JBL OnBeat Mini is good to go whenever the rhythm hits you.

The JBL OnBeat Mini has a 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) stereo input, plus touch-button volume controls and recessed connectors for easy transport. A convenient USB port provides playback from other devices and even charges them. What’s more, the JBL OnBeat Mini is so small and compact that it can go virtually anywhere with you. For convenience, versatility and portability, the JBL OnBeat Mini is easy to enjoy – and hard to beat.

JBL OnBeat Mini is rated 3.6666666666666665 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! I bought this to take on vacation to Jamaica with me. I have an ipod Touch 5G with the lightning adapter and my old traveling speaker system wasn't compatible. I could not be more pleased. The crisp clear sound is much better than I'd hoped for. It's solidly built; very nice unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, butt... Very nice sound. Compact portable size. Two issues: had to take my iPhone 5 out of the protective case. It will not engage engage the lightning connector with a case on. And, the so called Quick Start guide is pretty bad. a few pictures, and that's about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound, Poor materials Overall good sound quality however the mechanics used to make the speaker is poor. The speaker no longer plays my phone and the charging port in the back is very loose. I've only had the speaker for about 5 months.
