    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    First, the good stuff:

    1.) Easy setup to your Wifi network. You connect to the On Beat Air from your iDevice or computer over adhoc WiFi, and then set it up to connect to your WiFi network. This took me under 60 seconds. The instruction sheet lays this out perfectly simply.

    2.) Once connected to your network, I found the On Beat Air to maintain a very solid connection to my Apple Time Capsule wireless router. Excellent. AirPlay worked flawlessly.

    3.) A simple LED lit solid indicates the connection to your network has been made. The connection LED is white, rather than piercing blue, which is much preferred.

    4.) The dock for charging your iDevice will fit your iPhone with a case on (I'm sure this depend on which case, but I had no trouble with my Speck Pixelskin HD on my iPhone 4S).

    5.) Sound quality is pretty good. While a tad lacking in the bass department, for such a small unit I'm very impressed.

    6.) Included remote is a nice touch.

    But, as always, the bad stuff...

    1.) The included cabling to connect to the wall is hopelessly long. It's in two parts, with the 100-240v worldwide power brick in one part, and the localized USA cable as the other part. Together they're just too long for my liking. This may not bother some people, especially if you use the On Beat Air as your alarm clock on your bedside table. However, for kitchen use on a counter it's just a real nuisance. I don't think JBL could have pleased everyone here, but still... kitchen users be sure you have somewhere to hide the cables if you're plugging in above counter. Also, bear in mind the power cable to the dock stick out quite a bit, too, so you need more depth on your shelf than the unit's actual measurements.

    Edit - if I could give this zero stars I would. This is an absolute waste of money. The airplay doesn't work and now the dock doesn't work. One of the worst purchases I've ever made. Skip this piece of junk.

    Edit- I'm knocking off another star after having this device for a year or so. Establishing a reliable connection to this thing is a nightmare. It always disconnects even though it's still plugged in as well as my router. Tried to connect it with airplay to my ipad today, waste of an hour. It is useful as a speaker dock, not at all useful with airplay.

    My girlfriend got me the JBL OnStage dock for my iPhone for Christmas last year and I was amazed at the sound for such a small dock/speaker system. So when I got my iPad I knew JBL was the first place I would look for a speaker dock for it.

    Appearance - The physical appearance is, well, a bit funky but not bad. It looks a bit feminine with the curves and the crossover trim in the front. Reminds me of looking at the shoulders of a lady wearing a shawl that is crossed in front. Not bad by any means, but I would prefer something a bit more angular and "manly". The glossy silver trim is nice but does attract finger prints. The materials are solid, fit and construction quality is good. Doesn't feel cheap - the speaker grilles are metal. Looks like a quality product.

    Setup - The cords / cables / brackets are all pretty straight-forward. There is one really long power cable (2 pieces, like a laptop cable) and two brackets (one for iPhone/iPod, one for iPad). Some people have complained about the power cable being too long. That seems pretty silly/picky to me - wouldn't you rather have a "too long" cable rather than a too short one? It's not that long.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Through Vine, I've been able to review a few portable speaker systems, most of them with WiFi/Airplay capability. The On Beat Air does a number of things well, but falls short in a bunch of categories that may be important to you. Here are the major points:

    -The sound is good for a tiny speaker system. Don't complain about how it doesn't really have enough volume or bass because... that's just not going to happen for something of this size. Don't be fooled either by the photos showing people enjoying the On Beat Air in a party-like setting. You could use the speaker for background music at a modest party, but it is best to think of the output as akin to a small to medium size boom box.

    -WiFi setup was easy and largely the same as setting up competing Airplay speakers. WiFi reception has been consistently very good. I've had no trouble moving the unit around and outside the house, and it has maintained a connection even through masonry walls.

    -I like the dock, however, there are growing complaints about the strength of the dock arm, complaints about the fit of the iPad 2, and strong complaints about the speaker's power-saving features that largely preclude the use this as an iPhone-clock-radio (because when your iPhone alarm goes off, no sound comes out of the speakers). This last problem is very unfortunate because this is a natural nighttime docking station, and many people do use their phones as alarm clocks.

    -I don't like the speaker app or the controls, generally. The JBL app tries to do too much, but it isn't as capable as iTunes, so it ends up getting in the way.
