JBL OnBeat Xtreme review


Awards 2012 Product of the Year - Speaker Docks. A fun-looking, fun-sounding dock that's worth every penny

Sounds great ; lovely design and build ; feature packed ; wireless works well

Midrange can become hard at high volumes ; flimsy device clamps

At $500, it costs as much as an iPad. The eye-catching design may not appeal to some people.
