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

JBL OnBeat Xtreme review


JBL's OnBeat Xtreme is pretty easy to sum up: this is a really good-sounding iPhone/iPad speaker dock that also boasts an impressive feature set, which includes Bluetooth wireless streaming and speakerphone capabilities. The truth is there isn't too...

The JBL OnBeat Xtreme offers excellent performance for an iPhone/iPad speaker dock, with detailed sound and good, tight bass that can fill a fairly large room. It also has built-in Bluetooth for wireless streaming, speakerphone capabilities, a video...

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

While it's on the expensive side, JBL's OnBeat Xtreme is one of the best-sounding iPhone/iPad docks we've heard--and it has built-in Bluetooth and speakerphone capabilities.

Amazing sound!


I highly recommend this speaker! Amazing sound and a very low end that doesn't fade with the higher volumes. Price may be a bit above the the rest on the market but with the sound quality your getting you won't feel as though your loosing out.

Great for use outdoors


Perfect for use outside in the garden where the extra bass is useful. Probably too much base for use indoors but being portable and waterproof, I'd imagine it's designed for outside. Compared this to Audio Pro Addon T3 and although it sounded lovely,...
