    Sounds Great bar One Minor Irritation!

    • Written by from DERBY

    I was lucky enough to receive one of these for Christmas 2013. It's a convenient way to charge my iPhone whilst listening to my music. Playback is crisp and clear; I often find myself having to turn the volume down such is the impressive power of this portable unit!

    My only bugbear is that sometimes it'll go into standby mode randomly meaning I have to turn the speaker unit back on to continue where my playlist left off.

    However, this is only a minor irritation. If you are looking for a portable speaker dock for your iPhone 5 then I can thoroughly recommend this product.

    Some flaws and POOR support.

    First up, as a simple speaker it's great. No complaints.

    However, I bought this as a dock to put by my bed so I can wake up to music/radio/alarm/whatever and it does not work in this way. If the speaker doesn't detect any audio coming from the device for ten minutes, it turns itself on and then doesn't wake up when the audio does come out.

    Despite contacting JBL three times on this, suggesting they may wish to put some from of "wake up" functionality in it, or put in an override to stay on, they have failed to adequately respond on each occasion. NOT what I would have expected from a company like JBL.

    And that's what really rankles - not that I bought something that doesn't do what I want it to. That's my problem really - it's sold as a speaker and it does that very well. It's that I expected a better customer service experience from what I thought was a decent brand.

    What a brilliant piece of kit. Superb sound from such a compact item and so portable. Works from 4 x AAA batteries lasting about 5 hours and also from the mains. It also charges the iphone when plugged into the wall socket. Mutes music when a call or text arrives so you never miss any of those important messages. V impressed.

    Very nice

    A nicely made dock/speaker/charger for lightning connecting iPhone/iPod. Great on bedside cabinet with the 'big clock hd' app set on minimum brightness. (Stroke screen downwards). Can work on batteries but obviously won't charge the docked item. You won't buy this if you want a lot of bass, you will need something like the new Bose, but for what it is, really nice sound and nicely made.

    Superb

    Bought it 2 days ago. Sound is great. Portability is also amazing. If you pair it with some of JBL's apps it makes and incredible combo. Really worth it.
