JBL OnBeat aWake is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 36.
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 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 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 1 out of 5 by from Worthless as wakeup alarm clock I bought it mainly to use it as a alarm clock. Since the unit goes to sleep to save energy and cannot be woken by the iphone this does not work. For some reason cannot connect with a macbook air via bluetooth, which is another problem for me.

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 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 AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this docking station has the best tone quality and was too easy to set up, my only complaint is that it, the dock itself, doesnt have a alarm on it, that you must d through your device GET THIS STATION it is well worth it

Is this unit compatible with Android based phones. tried it on a Samsung phone, though connects via bt but does not play any music but using an AUX and connected iPhone bt works fine.

Asked by: Mackie
What you are experiencing is not normal. For the Bluetooth function of the ONBEAT AWAKE, it should be compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices. Please turn off both devices, turn them back on and follow this instructions - 1.Press the OnBeat aWake’s Source button until the Bluetooth icon appears on the display. 2.Place the device in the pairing mode, then hold down the OnBeat aWake’s Source button until its Bluetooth icon begins flashing. This will put OnBeat aWake in the Bluetooth pairing mode. Use the device’s Bluetooth pairing menu to pair with OnBeat aWake. (If the device requires a pairing code, it is 0000.) 3. When OnBeat aWake’s Bluetooth icon illuminates constantly, it is paired with the device and you can stream audio via Bluetooth from the device to the OnBeat aWake. To disconnect the Bluetooth device, press and hold the Source button. To pair OnBeat aWake with a different Bluetooth-enabled device, repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the new device.

I am trying to connect my JBL OnBeat aWake to my HP all in one PC. It will connect, but there is no sound. How do I correct this issue?

Asked by: Melissann
The ON BEAT AWAKE does not require any specific drivers. It utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most computers. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality Stereo Audio listening. Being that the ON BEAT AWAKE is a speaker, your computer must connect to the ON BEAT AWAKE using the Stereo Audio protocol. It is possible that your computer does not support or is not setup to support Stereo Audio Bluetooth connection. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio.

Working perfectly on my Android OnePlus through Bluetooth. But I want to know if it works on Apple ipod touch 4th generation using the docking station.

Asked by: JSankar
If your iPod touch is updated to the latest iOs it should work as i understand the 4th gen iPod touch utilizes the 30 pin connector. However, if your iPod touch is not recognized by the speaker, you can still use the aux connection on the speaker for your iPod touch.

Asked by: RamBat
The speaker does have an AUX port so if your TV has a 3.5 mm AUX port or headphone port then you can use the speaker for your TV.

When it goes into standby it does not reactivate when the attached device reactivate.

Asked by: mkat
When the ONBEAT AWAKE is on, press the Power button to put it into the standby mode. (The clock display will dim in the standby mode.) When the ONBEAT AWAKE is in standby, press the Power button to turn it on. (The clock display will illuminate at full brightness when the unit is on.) When the ONBEAT AWAKE is in the standby mode it will automatically turn on when it detects audio playing from a Bluetooth-connected device, a docked device or when it detects wake-up alarm audio from a docked device. When the ONBEAT AWAKE is on, it will automatically enter the standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity (no audio input and no user-control operation). When the alarm is active, press the Power button to turn the alarm off. Note: When the ONBEAT AWAKE enters the standby mode it will also bring a docked device into standby mode.

It has recently been shutting down on it's own during playback. Updates?

Asked by: Sung
This usually happens when you are connecting to the Aux Input via a headphone output on an audio device. Reason being, the unit has an auto on/off feature based on audio signal. So, if you have the volume on your device turned down, and the volume on the ON BEAT AWAKE turned up, it may be shutting off because it is not seeing enough audio volume to stay on. Try turning the volume on your device up to at least 75%, and turn the volume on the ON BEAT AWAKE down, to compensate. Not only will this fix your problem, it will also sound better with less noise.

How can I make a bluetooth connection to an Android phone? It connects with my Note 4, but there is no sound! I am frustrated.

Asked by: alberthipp
You can go into your Bluetooth settings and select the XTREME settings and select ONLY the Audio option and deselect the Headset option. This will allow you to transmit audio from the phone to the speaker. Make sure that the player you are using would allow the use of bluetooth speakers.
