JBL OnBeat Rumble is rated 4.626865671641791 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Impressed First off let me start by saying the only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because I've only had it for 1 week. Now that that's out of the way, I was skeptical as to if this unit would suit my needs out on my back patio while I work or just relax. I listen mostly to R&B and this speaker does the trick. Jazz sounds really good too. Ahh heck, everything sounds good. I really don't need the use the extra bass switch. This unit fills my back yard with sound. I don't own an iPhone so I stream Bluetooth from android. A bit pricey at $400 but if you can swing it, go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressed Just got the chance plug in the rumble. Used my daughters iphone 5, docked. The bass was impressive, imaging was very nice also. Plenty of volume, enough to hear in another room. Caught it on sale, thought I should buy 2 of them. When my daughter heard the music (Frank Sinatra) she wanted it for herself. I have an android phone, bluetoothed in seconds. AC/DC sounded great also, again bass drum came through just fine. Knew I should have purchased 2 units! If it goes on sale again, count me in. JBL always a winner, I use the srx series for my DJ rig. Crank it up!...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, loud, and stout Bought this about a month ago and I'm thoroughly impressed with the sounds of this Bluetooth speaker. I've owned 5 previously Bluetooth speakers and none of them can compete with this product. The bass seems to limit out at about 75% volume and depending on what you listen to you may need to use "treble booster" equalizer setting to allow you to turn volume up above 75% without having the bass get distorted. I bought one for my mom and another for my brother as bday gifts. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Got this on amazon for $160.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound! I bought the JBL Onbeat Rumble speakers a couple weeks ago when it was on sale. I have to say that the sound quality is excellent and in particular I must mention that the base resonates well. Not sure what true audiophiles think of the Rumble but it's definitely a great purchase for the average listener like myself. I suppose the only downside is that the highs/treble aren't as outstanding in comparison to their lows/base counterpart. But this is something I can easily overlook when compared to its overall performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do use the Bass and Club buttons!! Saw this speaker when it came out but it was beyond my budget. Luckily it was on sale last week and I scored 2!! One for myself and another for my niece. Turned out to be a great purchase. Sound is amazing especially when you turn on extra base and the club button makes music sound "live". My only complain... it lacks a handle and requires 2 hands to carry. I run my acoustic guitar and a mic through a Yamaha AG03 to this speaker and it sounds great. Must buy when on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this product, I actually have three (bcz of the generous promo mainly) but I'm so glad I did! I use one for the tv upstairs, one for down, the other for strictly music! The ONLY drawback is that it needs a remote control; overall NICE SOUND! The app could stand a few upgrades for better features; but I am totally satisfied about JBLs OnBeat Rumble! Lastly, I don't know why it doesn't have a carry-handle(?). Doesn't matter I'm good with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely sounding speaker system! After looking at a few YouTube videos on reviews for this speaker, I thought they were pretty positive and thought since it was a great sale price, I'd give it a try. glad I did! it's a wonderful rich sounding speaker. paired easily with my iPad and iPhone. the bass reflex is deep and the sound is incredible. Use it in the backyard when I'm relaxing or hooked up to my TV for movies. Folks, if this goes back on sale, GRAB IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money I got this model on sale for $132 after shipping and it's well worth that! Extremely crisp and clear music quality. I was looking at the wireless bluetooth models, but I am extremely satisfied with this purchase! My only caution would be that this model packs a good amount of bass. So if your music doesn't sound right with a little bump then you might want to look into other models
