I've left the original review as it was after this paragraph so here's the update posted January 2014. Well, it appears that the alarm bug was down to APPLE. There has been a slight update for the phone over the past few weeks and I'm pleased to say that the alarm now works in the dock without the dock shutting down and muting the alarm so it's a great dock. The price seems to be going up and up but for the price I paid its a 5 star product but it's fairly pricey at its current price of around £80. Original review follows....

Tricky to review this one. I think the original price of this is around £90 which is a no go but this can now be bought for around £30 everywhere. At £30 (I paid £20) it's a brilliant buy if you want to charge your phone and listen to a bit of music in a bedroom. The sound is very neutral and doesn't suffer horrible "bass boost" like 99% of other docks. For its size is the best dock I've heard. I auditioned a £700 b&w dock and it's was terrible, not worth £100. Overblown bass, splashy treble and no mid range. The jbl really shines at low volume levels. Really shines. It fails at higher levels though so it won't be good for filling a room. Build quality is superb with rubber rails on the bottom to prevent slipping. The lightning connector is hinged so you don't feel your snapping the internals of the phone when inserting or removing it. It also works with cases too. Not all cases obviosly but if you have an open bottomed case like a lot of the belkin cases you will be fine. If your case has cut outs for the speakers and dock port you may struggle. So why the 3 stars? Most people will want to charge their phone overnight and use it as an alarm whilst it's charging. You cannot do this with this dock.

Bought this for my son's birthday. He has an iPhone 5 and wanted to listen to music in his room. So far so good, connection is good, sound reasonable.

Speaker is fine, but switches into standby mode after 10 minutes and mutes the speaker on the iPhone. Crazy design - this would be the ideal speaker/stand to use together with an alarm clock app - and they've designed that option out of their product. Insane JBL! Do not buy if you want to use on the bedside together with an alarm app.

After recently upgrading from an iPhone 4 to a 5, I found my old portable speaker dock redundant due to the lightening connector.

I wanted something simple, compact and with a decent sound that would also charge my phone and this speaker dock definitely ticks all of those boxes.

It's a nice, simple design and slotted into a small space nicely in my kitchen. The phone sits on the connector nicely although wasn't happy with the plastic case on my phone so this has to be removed when sitting on the dock. Sound is very impressive - very loud yet crisp and clear. Much better than my old speaker dock which was triple the price and very bulky.

Would very much recommend - amazing sound quality for the price.

This is a neat little unit and will accommodate a minimal case (bot nothing too chunky). Build quality is very good, the battery backup option is good, but they won't last too long taking just 4 AAAs. I have it on my bedside table for charging and the odd bit of music while reading or (using the batteries for portability) doing a bit of DIY.

Personally I find the sound disappointing. It's flat and a little tinny. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but did hope for more than it delivers. It's still listenable and free from distortion for the most part, while the volume is impressive. Will easily fill a large room with your questionable taste in music!

Until Lightning-capable speaker docks become the norm, this is probably your best option in the short term at this price point.

Colour Name: Black
I used for some time a Philips DS3020/05 Portable Docking Speaker for iPod/iPhone - White for my iPhone 4 so I have a good baseline.

The very good:
- when you turn it off it stops the music program in iPhone (Music.app or DJay) not just the sound
- when you put the iPhone in the connector, the dock does not turn on. It might seem counter-intuitive, but think that you are placing your i5 in the dock late at night. With the previous Phillips dock if I was sleepy (it is common late at night!) and forgot to turn OFF the dock after inserting the iPhone, the alarm in the morning would sound at FULL volume through the speakers of the dock, blasting in the quiet morning. So yes, it is a very good thing that the dock does not turn on automatically with the iPhone.
- the USB port in the back allows you to charge another iDevice (iPad in my case), or another device (e.g. Kindle)

The good:
- the sound is a good surround, the room is filled even in any direction. With previous Philips dock, it would blast the sound only forward.
- the footprint of the dock is smaller
- the 4 batteries are AAA, not AA. That makes a lighter dock to carry from one room to another.
- slick black
- the connector pivots forward and it is easy (easier than i4 with the 30 pin connector) to plug in the i5
- the sound is also played from the 30 pin USB cable from iPad through the USB port. Not very important for me, but a nice touch.
- the sound is exactly as you would expect from this size for a dock. It is crisp and there is also good bass. It fills a room but it won't be enough for a small party. There is virtually no distortion at maximum volume.
