Superior Sound Quality

JBL Odyssey Transducers

The JBL On Stage IV delivers superior sound quality through the use of four proprietary Odyssey transducers. The sound quality of these four drivers has been further improved with computer-optimized equalization, which tunes their output specifically for the JBL On Stage IV. These drivers are able to deliver incredible full-range sound (70Hz - 20kHz) because they are made of aluminum, which is the perfect driver material for wide dynamic range since it is incredibly rigid yet very lightweight. With the JBL On Stage IV, you'll be surprised by just how good a JBL loudspeaker dock can sound.

Powerful Digital Power and DSP

The JBL On Stage IV features a powerfully tuned digital audio path. The clean digital amplification delivers high-output, crystal-clear sound.

Complete Compatibility

With the JBL On Stage IV, you can use nearly any portable or desktop device.

iPod- and iPhone-Compatible

Use your iPod or iPhone to listen to music, watch videos or check out your photos. It is compatible with all docking versions of the iPod, including the iPod nano G3, iPod classic and the iPod touch. The JBL On Stage IV is also compatible with all versions of the iPhone, including the recently released iPhone 4.0. And when using your iPhone with the JBL On Stage IV, you can still receive calls even while you're listening to music. The JBL On Stage IV will interrupt your music to let you take your call and then seamlessly go back to playing your tunes when you are done.

USB and auxilliary inputs allow you to connect the On Stage IV to nearly any portable device.

USB Input

The JBL On Stage IV even has a USB input, allowing you to easily connect to iTunes to sync your latest favorite music to your iPod or iPhone - all without having to remove it from the dock.

    The sound quality is superb for such a small unit.

    If you want something small with an interesting modern look, I think you'll be very happy with this speaker dock.
    Nerd Alert
    You can't use it to turn the speakers on and off, because it is a manual button.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I was dubious of this petite system's power (it was soooo much smaller than I imagined!) But the depth of sound produced was truly impressive! What follows are the pros and cons of the JBL On Stage IV. I hope they help you in your decision-making process.

    Pros:
    1.) This diminutive dock consumes very little space. Extremely efficient!
    2.) Aesthetically speaking, it is surprisingly intriguing to the eye. The criss-cross pattern is quite appealing/entertaining ... and, though I am not tremendously fond of glossy plastic, it really does work in contrast to the alternating speakers (see the picture and you will understand what I mean). When a product looks this great, fingerprints wipe off:) A truly stellar example of form and function!
    3.) The sound was genuinely surprising. The base was richer than I expected. Very lush, indeed!
    4.) There is virtually no excess energy used. There is no LED screen. Basically, the area surrounding the iPod is illuminated in a soft, white light. That is the only indicator that the product is on. This may appeal to those focused on conserving resources/energy.

    (Potential) Cons:
    1.) The power button is located on the back of the device. And, it requires more pressure and depth to activate than normal. On three separate occasions, I went to use the dock ... and each time I failed to actually turn it on. One must press down firmly to make it work (it sharply "clicks" into place). This will not impact most buyers but could be problematic for those with arthritis or any type of physical disability.
    2.) Other than the power and volume buttons, there are no other button on the device. If one loses the remote-control (or breaks it), the product becomes a little difficult to use.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The On Stage IV is a very simple product. There is no screen and the only ports are an input (headphone jack for inputting sound from non-iPod devices), USB (to pass through to a computer if you'd like to sync while it is playing), and power. The power cord can be ditched in lieu of batteries, which go discreetly in the bottom. While the device looks great and would be at home in a fancy hotel, it is also quite small and I had pretty low expectations. The sound is really great, though. I compared it to my much larger set with separate left, right, and bass speakers and found it completely superior. It has surprising range. Speakers this small tend to have empty bass, but somehow the sound is quite full. Turning it all the way up, the speakers showed no sign of strain. The one area it can't compete in is audio separation, since the speakers are so close together. However, the strange angling fills the room with sound and works well for what it is. I was so impressed with the sound that I think it would make great portable speakers for a laptop as well, and it even did well with action scenes.

    If you want something small with an interesting modern look, I think you'll be very happy with this speaker dock.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This ipod dock with speakers has a cool design and is very sleek in appearance. It's very user-friendly for non-tech heads like me. But most importantly, the sound is AMAZING, given the size of the speakers. The sound has the perfect balance of bass and upper register notes. With classical music, the whole spectrum of sound is reached and with vocal music, the voice is not overly echoed, but rather right in the center of the sound. I was very surprised at how this little device could fill my living room with a full, rich sound. Recommended!

    Verified Purchase
    I purchased this item due to my experience with the JBL On Stage IIIP, an earlier model of the same brand. Upon recieving this product, I immediately took it to work and compared its sound quality to its IIIP predecessor.

    The technical specs indicates that the newer On Stage IV has a higher frequency range, and after thorough testing, I can say that this claim is true. The sound is crystal clear at higher volumes, does not distort and maintains pleasant treble clarity where the older On Stage IIIP starts to waver. The bass has hardly any noticeable improvement, which is ok considering the bass is surprisingly exceptional for such a diminutive and portable device.

    The aesthetic design serves as exquisite form, and surprisingly higher function. It does a better job at spreading sound around an entire room than its older version due to the strategically placed sound drivers.

    I gave four stars due to one design aspect that I question: The indicator LED within the dock. It's very bright, and is cause for concern for those who wish to operate this speaker on a set of batteries. I feel that due to its brightness, it may drain batteries at a slightly faster rate compared to the JBL On Stage IIIP. Otherwise, if you have no intention on using this speaker sans a wall outlet, you have nothing to fear.

    Overall, this is amazing sound coming from such a small device, and a lot of my friends first encounter with it is usually met with shock and positive feedback. If you are looking for a small, lightweight, portable solution, JBL On Stage IV delivers THE BEST sound, pound for pound.
