JBL OnBeat aWake is rated 3.9655172413793105 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not work with my Android I was so excited to get a JBL product. :) I had an IPhone, and onbeat worked well. I recently got a new Galaxy s4 and the onbeat will not work at all. EVEN BLUETOOTH will not work, what a disappointment! :( The JBL Ampup app is a disappointment as well. The alarm clock function requires the app to be running and is confusing at best. The alarm clock should be part of the onbeat unit. The JBL Ampup also conflicted with my Iphone music player. When both the app and my Iphone player were active. Mostly, Just really disappointed I cannot use the onbeat at all now, since it will not work with my Android. I feel like I threw out $140.00.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bluetooth doesnt work I had this docking station about a month. At first, I loved thisproduct. The bluetooth was great and the sound qaulity was (and still is) amazing. After about 2 1/2 weeks the bluetooth no longer worked. I have tried 4 different devices. 2 iphones, a ipod touch and a andriod phone along with a ipad 2. It says that it cannot connect. I have tried unplugging the speaker for 15 mimutes and it still wouldnt work. Im at a loss for what to do to get the bluetooth to work. The docking part works great but when i want to work on the device and listen to music its a pain. Please help me! IM AT A LOSS. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speakers with a flaw These speakers are amazing! Good bass that does not interfere with the great speakers. I love this product but there is a flaw, a rather big one. I don't know if it is my device (iPod touch 4th gen) or the speakers, but after 30 min using bluetooth i loose connection and have to restart bluetooth. Further more, I you start a video after the beginning then the sound is way off from whats happening on the screen. Don't let these negatives put you off, when bluetooth gets better, so will my problems. I would defiantly get the JBL OnBeat aWake again, even though it is not always OnBeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this to use outside when I barbecue. I have a different one and the sound is poor, especially the bass. This JBL has really clean clear sound and bass that doesn't distort. Really glad I got this and at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME JBL SOUND! RECERTIFIED IS THE WAY TO GO! I bought the JBL Onbeat Awake Recertified at the CRAZY LOW price of $24.99 w/ free shipping a month ago, and it's probably the best bang for my 25 bucks that I've spent in the last 2 years! Everything has worked flawlessly so far. Bluetooth is working great with iPhone, iPod nano 7th gen, and all of my Android devices, and the dock port works perfect with all of the older 30-pin devices that I've tried. The stereo sound clarity and bass is exceptional for a unit of this size. It goes fairly loud for an in home unit, too. Great for a bedroom, kitchen or back patio speaker (but it does have to be plugged in for power). I tested the alarm feature with the JBL AmpUp app, and it worked fine. Just be sure to disable the autolock within the app settings if you are going to use it as an alarm clock (alarm wasn't my main reason for purchasing, though).The display has 3 brightness settings, and in my opinion is very easy to read. I purchased separately a 30-pin to lightning adapter that supports audio, and docking now works with my lightning enabled devices. I have the JBL Pulse 2 as well, which is an outstanding portable with awesome light show, but even though it has 3 watts more power than the Onbeat Awake (16w vs. 13w), I actually prefer the sound of the Onbeat Awake while in home. It has better, stronger bass response and clearer highs. Just realize that the frequency response is 75Hz-20kHz, so it does kind of cut out some of the super low, deep bass notes, like in some Rap & Hip-Hop songs. The only thing I wish it had, which it lacks, is a remote control to control playback and volume of a docked device. That would have made this unit perfect imo, but at this price-point, I have no complaints. I love this thing so much I just had to purchase another one while they were still available at this price! And on top of it all, it's covered by Harman Audio's 1 year limited warranty, just like a brand new unit is. I worked as an Electronics Salesperson for many years and am very picky about sound quality, so if I'm happy, it must be good! You'd be a fool not to jump on an amazing deal like this if you have the opportunity! Just get one before they're gone, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Haman Audio!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality and features but with a few quirks. The "easy to read" display IS NOT easy to read --in fact it's horrible. I wouldn't have bought this if I intended use it as a bedroom alarm clock. although the dim feature is thoughtful. One really annoying thing is that it keeps switching to bluetooth when I have it set to auxillary input. The AmpUP app, free version does not have equalizer..??????? Couldn't figure it out, so i just don't want to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I saw this product advertised with a ridiculously low price tag and figured what the heck. After plugging it in and connection my iPhone I was blown away by the sound. It is ridiculously simple to use and connect to. I had it playing on Christmas day and had several people want to take it home with them, they were that impressed with the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding sound for a portable device Bought this on New Years Eve to provide background music for our party. Very pleased with the sound quality and the available volume. Tried it with an older Ipod nano loaded in the dock and a new nano connected via bluetooth. Very pleased with both methods.

The ON BEAT AWAKE utilizes the older 30-pin connector. It does not have the lightning connector.
