Perfectly portable with really impressive sound,
This review is from: JBL On Stage IIIP Portable Loudspeaker Dock for iPod and iPhone 3G (Remote Control - Battery or A/C ) (Electronics)
I wanted to try and find some speakers that i could easily take with me on holiday but with great sound quality. Remote control and battery power, with a size that could fit in a suitcase were key requirements.
I tested many different portable speaker options, from the BOSE sound dock and Klipsch igroove all the way down to very basic <£20 Altec lansing, Philips and Sony options and the JBL On Stage IIIP was far and away the best.
I had largely discounted the BOSE due to the cost but also the size - the sound dock is just too big to fit in a suit case. However what surprised me was that although the JBL sound wasn't as good as the BOSE at the very high end, in the middle range i felt the sound was fuller and more capable.
The iGroove sound is impressive but again, not as portable, and if i'm honest it still didn't seem to deliver the the same sound through the range.
Don't even compare it to the low end docks and speakers - they are lighter and clearly more easily portable but if sound is important, that tinnyness and fuzzy base that you get will really irritate.
All in all, I've been delighted with them. The only draw back is the weight - they are not light!

Hi, can anyone tell me does this work with the iPhone 3GS, I've just bought the JBL On Stage III as it said in reviews that it worked with the iPhone - yes and only if u switch to airplane mode - has anyone had to do this? I really want to find something that will charge/play with my iPhoone but not if I have to put in airplane mode first!
