JBL ONBEAT XTREME,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JBL ON BEAT Xtreme Bluetooth Active (discontinued by manufacturer) (Accessory)
A good friend of mine has owned a B&W Zeppelin Air for some time, and I was very impressed with this, superb sound and excellent build quality. I have to say it was this which tempted me into purchasing a high end speaker dock, however the Zeppelin was a little above my price range.
Having viewed and tested several speakers instore, and read many online review. Other brands that I considered included the Bose, Sono, B&W, B&O, Logitech...however, I opted for the JBL ONBEAT XTREME. This was a bit of a gamble, as I had not seen or tested this model...however i have owned JBL products before. My purchase was based on this and the other excellent reviews it has received.
WOW...all I can say is, if you want the BEST....look no further, this really is a fantastic piece of kit. On the first listen, I felt a little apprehensive...I hit play, and just grinned...The sound is exceptional, the high end sounds are vibrant and crisp and the bass is very deep and no sign of distorting, even on the highest of volumes! The build quality meets the sound, faultless and the unit itself is very compact and smaller than the Zeppelin Air. It is definitely in the same league as the Zeppelin, and might just pip it.
Set up and operation is very simple, and the FREE iPad App is great...easy to use, and drops in your existing iTunes playlist. The Bluetooth connection has been great so far, and no sign of dropping out.
I would strongly recommend this...I am very fussy, and I dont have a bad word to say about this. Enjoy it...I dont think you'll find anything better for this price range
