Break through the sound barrier with the JBL OnBeat™ loudspeaker docking station. Listen to all the music loaded on your iOS devices – iPad, iPod and iPhone – with the clear, high-quality audio that makes JBL® products world famous, at a price that no one can beat. Far more than just a dock for your iOS devices, the JBL OnBeat system opens up a 360-degree soundstage for all the media loaded on your iOS devices. How do we get such great sound from such a small system? DSP (digital signal processing) equalization augments the system’s two JBL Phoenix SE full-range loudspeaker transducers. In addition, the JBL OnBeat system makes videos more fun for the family to enjoy. An ingenious rotating dock lets you position iPhone and iPod devices in portrait or landscape mode for widescreen viewing while watching movies. You can even display videos on your TV for a whole crowd to enjoy. And while you’re enjoying the entertainment, the docked device is charging and will be ready to go when you are.

JBL OnBeat is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but powerful I bought this for my wife's iPad but I'm using it now for the bedroom TV. I'm very happy with the sound quality for such small radiators. Better than a sound bar 100% good bottom end for watching your shows or movies in the bedroom, but bedroom not living room

Love this unit ... Upgraded my phone just recently ... Is there a way to convert this from 30 pin to 8 pin? Thanks

Asked by: MaryK
I'm not sure what you mean by 8 pin. If you are talking about the Apple Lightning connector, Apple offers adapters to convert from 30 pin to Lightning. If you are talking about a different connector, unfortunately I don't have that answer and will have to suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your new phone, to find out if they offer a converter.

I need a power supply for this unit. Can you please tell me the exact specs? I know it requires a 13V 2.5A supply but what is the pin size? Thank you.

Asked by: MattWeston72
The JBL OnBeat speaker the power adapter pin is a standard female pin type. It seems that you are intending to purchase this power supply from a local store, best suggestion is to bring the JBL OnBeat speaker to check compatibility of connector and its power rating needs to be 13V 2.5A. If you need further support about our product, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you.
