JBL OnBeat Venue Lightning is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, awesome sounding product I bought one of these back in 2013 (almost 4 years ago), and it's still an amazing piece of hardware. By the time I bought it Apple was still using the 30 pin connector, so this only feature is outdated. However, its other features, like bluetooth, cable connection and incredible sound quality are still rocking! If I were to give you all an advice, this is a must have for your living room, bedroom, or anywhere you want to listen to good music with an outstanding sound quality. I've had it for almost 4 years now, and this little box will be rocking for many more years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speaker I picked up the JBL OnBeat Venue about 2 months ago and I am very pleased with how it performs. It has a lot of power for its size and the audio quality is superb. I use it with my iPhone 5 and iPad mini both wirelessly and through the lighting connector. The build quality far exceeds other speakers I've seen for this price range. If you love listening to music like I do and want a great speaker that's affordable I would highly recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome purchase Can not believe I bought this for so cheap. Bluetooth works great with my android and macbook. When Im not using it as a portable music device outside I use the auxiliary port and plug it directly into my tv for awesome sound. Cable not included. Sorry about the docking station. You should be able to use your phone with a case on it. Im an android guy so I rely on the bluetooth or cable. very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Perfection. Bluetooth ok This is the best sound system I have ever had. Better than Bose. However, sometimes there are issues with the bluetooth, disconnects randomly. Would recommend though sound is just too good.

Hi guys, great product! I've an issue with the firmware upgrade. After the reboot of the device following the upgrade via app, the app says the upgrade has still to be installed. Is there a way to recover the factory settings and then upgrade again?

Is it possible to rename device Bluetooth name permanently? So after that JBL will be showing new name. Why it needed: we have may of this model in hotel, and guests confusing when trying to connect to their room device.

Asked by: RustamT
Unfortunately naming can only be limited with the phone's device and not with the system. This is a limitation of bluetooth
