Product Description

Sound station for all iPods

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description Note: For the latest version of the JBL On Stage Speakers for iPod, which is compatible with the Generation 5 iPods and Nanos, see the JBL On Stage B Speakers for iPod.

Listeners love the iPod for a variety of reasons, including its high-quality sound, clever design, and user-friendly functions. Harman Multimedia pays tribute to this efficiency with its JBL On Stage docking speaker system, which broadcasts your favorite iPod music while offering many of the same creative benefits as the iPod itself. The device employs four Odyssey Neodymium drivers to deliver a full spectrum of audio--from profound bass notes to crisp high frequencies--along with computer-optimized equalization that seamlessly blends the tones for clarity. The device makes a natural companion to most versions of the iPod. The JBL On Stage is compatible with all versions of the iPod, except the iPod Photo. It also connects to other portable audio devices, such as MP3 players, CD players, and laptops, via its stereo mini-jack connection., with a sleek, inventive housing that cradles the iPod body while adding a modern touch to your décor. The device is also compact--measuring 7 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall--meaning you can take it virtually anywhere. Merely stuff it in a backpack, suitcase, or car compartment, and enjoy its full-bodied audio while on the road.


The JBL On Stage come with adapters for all versions of the iPod, including the iPod mini.

As with any device that accompanies an Apple product, the On Stage is also remarkably easy to use, with a touch volume control and a full iPod charger. A simple touch of either pad increases or decreases the volume, while touching both pads simultaneously mutes or unmutes the speakers. The On Stage also remembers your last volume setting even after the system shuts down. Charging your iPod is effortless as well--merely plug the iPod wall charger into the On Stage and rest the iPod in the dock. The On Stage takes care of the rest. Listeners can also charge their iPods by plugging the On Stage directly to a computer with the OnePoint connectors. The system charges the iPod whether it's powered on or not.

The JBL On Stage is compatible with all versions of the iPod, including the iPod mini. It also connects to other portable audio devices, such as MP3 players, CD players, and laptops, via its stereo mini-jack connection.

What's in the Box
JBL On Stage, wall adapter, iPod adapters, audio cable, and user's manual.

An important note from JBL:
You may have heard that a very few customers (currently fewer than 1%) have experienced a problem with JBL On Stage.

The problem will present itself in one of two ways: Either the unit no longer works or the volume can't be controlled. This condition may occur ONLY if all of the following conditions are present:

  1. You dock your iPod to JBL On Stage while both products are on and
  2. A significant charge of static electricity transfers from you to the JBL On Stage volume control and
  3. A specific chip was used in your JBL On Stage.
We want to emphasize that there is no safety issue.

JBL is offering to replace your JBL On Stage at no cost to you except for the shipping cost to their warehouse (JBL will pay return shipping), should you have a JBL On Stage with a defective chip. First, find out whether your unit has the defective chip by going to http://www.jbl.com/home/product_support/jblonstage.aspx.

I read all the reviews about this product's problems, like its shorting out on the second day...but I didn't believe them. Maybe those reviewers were using it wrong. Maybe they were playing it too loud (I'm too old to listen to loud music, so I figured that wouldn't be an issue for me). Maybe their iPods were somehow the culprit.

Lo and behold, mine did indeed short out on the second day. I got about 10 good minutes of use out of it the first day. Next day, I turned it on, and the speakers crackled even with the volume down low. And every time I hit either volume button I heard loud distortion. Basically, it is now useless.

In short, this product is trash. Amazon would only offer me a refund - I guess I should be glad I won't have to get a replacement and go through the same thing all over again. JBL says 1% of their devices have these problems? Yeah, right.

My advice: STAY AWAY from this defective piece of junk. And believe the reviews - they're actually true. I've learned my lesson.

UPDATED 3/8/05

I went to the Apple Store, took a chance, and bought a new one of these, one with the new chip that allegedly corrected all the problems (I didn't like the sound or the design on any of the other speakers, except for the Bose, which is a bit too pricey for me). Apple said they'd take it back if anything happened within 14 days, and would work with me if anything went wrong after that.

I have to admit, the new model is working great - JBL has sorted out all the problems. I have no static, no shorting out, great sound, working volume controls, etc. etc.

I was quite impressed with the volume of the Sound Stage. It sounds great also. Just remember that for the best sound you can adjust the equalizer on your iPod.

Three of my friends now have a Sound Stage based solely on how impressed they were with listening to mine.

It is great for taking on the road and listening to in Hotels rooms etc.

I can't really even emphasize how much use and enjoyment I have gotten out of this player in the year I have had it. I might even go so far as to say that I believe you really aren't getting the full value out of your iPod if you don't have these speakers, or at least some other comparable speakers. The sound on these is great, the design is simple and compact yet attractive, and most conveniently of all... your iPod charges while plugged into it.

One thing that might be kind of annoying... if you have a case for your iPod, you'll have to remove it each time you use these speakers. Also, I've never had any problems with these speakers, but apparently there is some sort of malfunctioning chip in some of them. From the sound of it, though, JBL has done as much as they can to fix the problem and replace faulty items.

Overall, I couldn't be much happier with this product and would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

Also...secret hint: you can mute the player by simultaneously pressing the "+" and "-" button.

This little edible donut shaped speaker is a wonderful accessory. Instead of listening to your music with headphones, you will have loud speakers with crisp sound. You have an included feature. You can mute and unmute, so if you get a phone call, mute the speaker. Fits in a backpack or suitcase for anything trips or going to work. These speakers work with mostly every iPod as follows: (you must have white adapters for different iPods to work on speakers. Set of four are included with speakers.)

iPod mini

iPod

iPod with color display

iPod with clickwheel

iPod Nano (adapter included in Nano box)

does NOT work with photo iPod!!!

Do not go out and buy Bose speakers which have the same crisp sound. Who the heck pays THREE HUNDRED FIFTEEN BUCKS (with tax) on speakers? These speakers are only ONE HUNDRED SEVEN BUCKS on Amazon!!!!!! Come on now??..!!

note: some units are defective. Some of these units have a bad chip inside. Make sure you call or email JBL for a replacement. All you have to do is ship out the defective one and they will replace it. You have to pay for shipping, but when they ship you a new one, thay will pay you back the amount.

I noticed that many of you like this product but are having problems with the volume controls. I found this on the JBL website.

"JBL has discovered that a certain chip used in the production of JBL On Stage will fail under certain circumstances. Not all On Stage products are affected. iPods are not affected and cannot be damaged by the problem. We have re-started production with a new, reliable chip. We are in the process of determining the exact batch numbers of the affected units. As soon as this is determined, we will re-supply all dealers and our own service department with new units for exchange. If you experience this problem, please contact us at websupport@harman.com or call 516-255-4JBL (4525) and select the prompt for "Multi-Media Computer Speakers". JBL is noted for its 50-year reputation in the design and manufacture of high-quality, best-in-class performing speakers. On Stage is no exception. We value your business and thank you for your patience as we exchange the defective units."
