Key Features

Wireless audio streaming

The HARMAN TrueStream technique is our guarantee that you will enjoy the best possible listening experience when you’re streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Because you have many options for Bluetooth connectivity, our products always use the most current and most advanced option to ensure the highest-quality sound no matter what application or source device you use.

Powerful JBL drivers

The JBL OnBeat Venue’s two full-range transducers provide you with room-filling sound. Experience clear highs and mids, plus exceptional bass – the true JBL sound that you’ve come to love.

Slipstream port technology

JBL Slipstream port technology gives listeners powerful, great-sounding bass with low distortion. Whether docked or streaming, you’ll experience bass that you can really feel.

Component video output to TV

Send the movies, games and images on your iPad to your big-screen TV. Just connect a component video cable (not included) to experience all of your multimedia content in big-screen format.

Auxiliary input for additional source devices

Whether your device is Bluetooth-enabled or not, the JBL OnBeat Venue allows you to take full advantage of its incredible sound, thanks to its auxiliary-input (aux in) connection. You can plug in practically any digital audio device, including an MP3 player, smartphone, tablet or laptop computer.

Free JBL MusicFlow app

The free, downloadable MusicFlow app lets you customize your listening experience from your Bluetooth-enabled device. Create custom playlists, edit mixes, adjust volume and EQ settings, and browse album artwork.

User-friendly EQ settings

Personalize your EQ settings from the JBL OnBeat Venue’s speaker or from your iPad. An easy-to-use display allows you to tweak highs, mids and lows to your liking. Pump up the bass quickly for dance music or create a balanced mix for movies and games.

Dock charger for iOS devices

We’ve designed the JBL OnBeat Venue to work seamlessly with your iPad and other iOS devices – and charge them while they’re docked. So when you’re ready to undock and take on the day, so is your favorite listening device.

Up to 20kHz frequency response

To combat the placement variations in one’s room, and human hearing deficiencies at higher frequencies, the JBL OnBeat Venue offers a frequency response that delivers the full-range response associated with exceptional sound.

Small box. Big sound. No doubt. Since this little powerhouse is a JBL speaker system, you can have faith that it delivers great JBL sound. The JBL OnBeat Venue offers 30 watts of amplification – enough to get your party bouncing.

I've read reviews elsewhere that were not too kind to this JBL speaker. For one thing, most of the poor reviews were simply because people couldn't dock their iPhone on the speaker without taking off their iPhone case. For someone who wants to know how the speaker actually SOUNDS, I don't care if you have to take off your iPhone cases. And I don't think people should give a GREAT speaker a one-star review simply because, like most other docks out there, you can't use it with a case on your phone!

Besides, if you want to dock your phone, there are plenty of speakers out there. I was really interested in this speaker as a Bluetooth speaker. Many times different family members want to share a song or a Youtube video, and we're stuck listening to the audio through the tiny speakers on our iPhones, Macbooks, and iPads (Yes, we're a Mac family). WOW! this speaker did not disappoint! I've had it just a few weeks, and I cannot believe how much use I've gotten from this little gem. And while Bluetooth was the type of speaker I was looking for, sound was the most important feature. Most speakers this size cause you to compromise on sound. They are usually tinny, all mid-range, or lack bass and/or clarity. The dynamic range and stereo separation on this speaker are great! I listened to many Bluetooth speakers, and this one really surprised me. I was about to purchase a Bose Bluetooth speaker, when I happened upon this one in a store, and was amazed at the sound. I had already decided to put down $400 on the Bose speaker, so it wasn't about the money.

A reviewer in a computer magazine mentioned that the sound quality diminishes when using Bluetooth compared to when it's docked. HUH? Because I read that review, that was the one thing I was concerned about.

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my teenager. She loves it. Easy to use and set up. Sound quality very good. And, importantly to her, it is loud.

The sound quality of this small device is amazing. There is no drop off when the Bluetooth is used. In fact, the Bluetooth sounds better than the cable mode. However, two problems keep it from "5 stars". First, the unit does not have a remote control which makes it difficult to use if you want to insert your Ipod directly on to the speaker. There is a free ap which JBL insists you download which doesn't seem to add much. Second, the first unit I received lost it's Bluetooth function in 5 days. JBL "service" had no clue as to what happened. Their suggestion was to try it again. Amazon replaced the unit promptly and the second specimen is performing well so far.
This model seems to be phasing out in favor of the same unit with Lightning connection. So, watch the price you as good deals are available.

As all JBL speakers, this one has an outstanding sound, powerfull bass, clear midrange and very bright high levels. The bluetooth is simple and easy to manage, it works very well with any music software on my 4S iphone. Actually, in Bluetooh mode the standard iphone software works better thant JBL Musicflow in this box. No sound trade off while connected via Bluetooth. Definitely, this equipement surpasses by far Bose key competitor in sound and versatility performance, and -- by the way -- at one third of the Bose price.-

LOUD, clear sound and decent bass for what it is. Love the fact that I can hook it up via Bluetooth so I can keep my phone with me while it streams. Awesome device!

Bought this speaker in order to use at an event for background music and I was SHOCKED at how loud and clear the music came through this little speaker. I've owned several stereo speaker systems in the past, and this one little speaker puts out sound on par with much more expensive ones I've owned. Bluetooth feature is also great as it allowed me to control the music as I worked the room and could pause when I needed it.

This speaker provides crystal clear sound. It has very clear highs and good bass. I bought this for my girlfriend who loves to listen to music all of the time and had been pestering me for a Bluetooth speaker for Christmas. I got this at a great price through another website but wanted to throw my 2 cents in. If I could I would buy a second, especially at the price I purchased the first. The only thing is that it is not very portable. It is not huge or extremely heavy, but it does require to be plugged into a 110v outlet which severely limits its use outside. But other than that we love it!!!
