JBL
Introducing the JBL OnBeat Micro. This compact speaker dock for the iPhone 5, iPod touch 5th generation and iPod nano 7th generation packs a serious audio punch, thanks to two full-range transducers and built-in digital signal processing (DSP) that combine to deliver dynamic, space-filling sound. If you have an iPhone 5, you've got to get the JBL OnBeat Micro. With the new Lightning docking connector built in, this speaker dock lets you enjoy your music without wires or adapters, and even has a USB port for compatibility with other devices. Compact and portable, the JBL OnBeat Micro can bring the noise from ceiling to floor for up to 5 hours when it’s using batteries and allows you to charge your device when it’s using AC power. The JBL OnBeat Micro is good to go whenever and wherever the rhythm hits you.

Super Product

By Zipper Dave

from Elk Grove, CA, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

Although I understand they don't make this item any longer, it's a shame. After I bought the first one, I was so impressed I bought another one to use out on my patio. Great, great little speaker with good sounds! Price was good too through Amazon.

The Dock that turns itself off

By porkupan

from Voorhees Township, NJ, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

I bought the JBL OnBeat Micro dock a few days ago. It's esthetically very nice, and produces decent sound. I could even live with its super short lightning connector (got an extension to be able to plug in iPhone 6 without removing it from the case). But one "feature" is a total deal breaker - auto standby mode. After a few minutes of "inactivity" the dock switches itself off. Well, OK, except it still owns iPhone audio, so you can not hear any sounds that may come later, such as alarms and notifications. This is a really big deal for me. There are some notifications on the iPhone that I must not miss, even during the night. But the OnBeat Micro dock makes my iPhone silent. JBL engineers should have at least made the device wake up on sound, or have a switch to turn the auto-standby off. They don't.

Perfect!!

By ZipperDave

from Elk Grove, CA, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

After ordering a system that didn't support the iPhone6, even though it advertised it did, I ordered this and noted that it was for the 5s. Well, lo and behold, it works on the 6 too. And boy it works really good. Small footprint for small spaces but great sound. Too bad this model is discontinued. Hopefully the newer model is just as good.

Awesome Speaker/Design but Poor Firmware

By AlexOhioguy

from Dayton, OH, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

It does not do any of these at the same time -Charging: It shows that it's charging but it the battery level never goes up it goes down. -Docking on Batteries: Speaker does not work at all after my last firmware update trial. I am not sure how long the firmware update should last. It's on for 15 minutes but still the amber/white light is on and off. Totally disappointed with the firmware quality. The speaker quality overall is good though. I don't even want to donate this to Goodwill because it'll cause extreme frustration to the next buyer.

A Portable Concert!

By Iley

from Undisclosed

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

I have read a few disturbing reviews. Theres the one where the lady says that you have to use batteries with the electric adapter and the batteries run down and theres a lot of static. Well the truth is you can use your Onbeat Micro without batteries and believe me the sound is awesome for the size & price! With batteries the convenience of 5 hours of playing time is an added bonus. Now here's the real deal, listening to the Onbeat Micro unit is like being at a private concert, and the sound attracts others to it. The mid range allows for clearly defined vocals and there just enough bass to feel the righteous groove of the music. The highs are so crisp and real that you can hear the fingers of the guitar player as he uses the frets on his instrument (acoustically). The charging of the Iphone is another wonderful bonus! I'd like to suggest that before anyone writes a review to first review the instructions. And then follow them properly. Theres nothing worst than a "bad review" on a great product! JBL You ROCK!!! Literally.

Horrible Connection

By kdh1

from Philadelphia, PA, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

I bought this dock for my office. I had an old version that worked well with my old phone. I am sorry to say this one does not work. My phone does not connect (for charge or music playback) at least 80% of the time. I wrote to JBL and have yet to hear back from anyone. Poor product and poor customer service.

Great device for an office, desk or anyplace

By jokerusso

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

I purchased this directly from JBL about two weeks ago. It has met all of my expectations and I'm pleased with my device. There is a swivel lightening connector so my iPhone fits in the OnBeat Micro even while in my slim case, it charges the phone quickly and plays clearly, even without any batteries loaded in the device. I use it on my desk to charge the phone and listen to music and white noise while at my computer. Perfect solution for my needs....and my phone is always ready to grab and go with a full charge!

Great little product

By Del43

from Oxford, United Kingdom

Comments about JBL OnBeat Micro Portable iPhone 5 Speaker Dock:

Just bought an Onbeat Micro in the UK and having worked for competitors of JBL most of my life I don't give this review easily, but I just have to say this is a great little product. You can hear it comes from a real loudspeaker manufacturer. I bought it to use with the latest iPod Touch and it does everything I wanted and hoped - easily the best sounding small iPod dock and excellent value for money.
