Product Description

Introducing the JBL OnBeat Mini. This compact speaker dock for the iPad mini packs a serious audio punch, thanks to two JBL full-range transducers and built-in DSP (digital signal processing) that combine to deliver dynamic, space filling sound. If you've got an iPad mini, you've got to get the JBL OnBeat Mini. This JBL speaker dock lets you enjoy the music on your iPad mini, iPad (4th generation), iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation) or iPod nano (7th generation) without adapters - and it has a USB port for compatibility with other devices.

Compact and portable, the JBL OnBeat Mini is good to go whenever the rhythm hits you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deeply flawed design
By David Stein on August 24, 2015
This product has two flaws - each is individually puzzling as a design choice, and the combination of the two makes the device defective.

(1) The shape of this dock suggests that it has a recessed slot that the iPad or iPhone sits in, and that holds the device in place while docked. However, this gap is practically cavernous - it is so oversized that it doesn't hold the device at all. It is also so shallow that even if you lean an iPad way back to make contact with it, the contact point is way at the bottom, so it will fall over. As a result, the device is only supported by standing on the Lightning connector.

Besides being disappointing, this flaw is problematic for several reasons. First, frankly, any device that's not gigantically sized will look ridiculous, standing in the middle of this huge hole. It's probably intentional that none of the photos for this product at Amazon show the dock with a device attached - see the one that I attached to this review to understand how pathetic it looks. Second, any dock that supports the device only by standing on the dock connector will put strain on the Lightning port *and* the connector: over time, one or both will be damaged. Third, because the Lightning connector is fairly short, the device is really unstable - perhaps not bad for an iPhone, but an iPad will not be secure at all.

So that's bad, but it gets worse, because:

(2) The socket that holds the Lightning connector has some wiggle room, so it can pivot forward and backward. So the dock doesn't feature a fixed prong upon which you can stand the device; rather, you have fuss with the connector to get it into the port on the bottom of the device. This is just a very strange choice for a dock connector; I can't even imagine a reason for this design.

When you put these flaws together, what you get is a port that's not only frustrating to connect, but also provides little support for the device.

Try this: Take an ordinary Lightning cable; bend the connector part upward and set it on a table; then take your device with both hands, and try to mount it on the totally unsupported Lightning cable. Nearly impossible, right? That's what this device does, only it costs $60.
