Superior Sound Quality
JBL Odyssey Transducers
The JBL On Stage Micro III 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 Micro III. 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 Micro III, you'll be surprised by just how good a JBL loudspeaker dock can sound.

The directions for the On Stage Micro III are brief and clear, and I was able to set the speaker up in just a few minutes. You can use either battery or electrical power for the speaker; I tried it both ways without any problems. There are two small, curved, rubber inserts that you use to ensure the correct fit for your iPhone or iPod. I had to play with these a bit to find the right insert and get it positioned properly, but for someone more mechanically inclined, I don't think it would present any challenges.
Once set up, the JBL On Stage Micro III Portable Loudspeaker offers very good quality music, especially for the size and price. It is the perfect device for a home office (where I will use mine), a bed / dorm room, and will make a great Christmas gift.
I was also pleased with the packaging of the JBL Loudspeaker. Most of the plastic bags have a recycle symbol of 4, which I can recycle at the local supermarket. The speaker is nested in formed cardboard, which I can easily recycle, instead of Styrofoam. It is nice to see JBL working on reducing excessive packaging.
Battery operated and weighing less than a pound, the JBL On Stage Micro III can go virtually anywhere. It works as a stand-alone iPod music system so with two JBL Odyssey full-range transducers and a digital amplifier, it can fill both rooma and spaces with realistic JBL sound. Aa USB cable is all that's need to sync and charge your iPod or iPhone with iTunes while keeping it charged, and navigate your library with the Micro III's IR remote control.
Some of the highlights:
* A dynamic JBL Weave design
* Unit is compact, lightweight, and portable
* It charges your iPod or iPhone
* Runs on AC or battery (batteries not included)
* Has dual JBL Odyssey transducers with computer-optimized equalization
* IR remote control navigates iPod menus from 15 ft (4.6m) away
* Up to 12 hours of music playback from a fresh set of batteries
* Easy-to-use touch controls
* USB jack syncs iPod/iPhone with iTunes when connected to your computer
* Uses both automatic battery and energy-conservation modes
* An LED light illuminates the platform and provides feedback on power and battery status
* Optimized system design so to prevent cellular phone interference during music playback
The unit has rear-port supported audio in and audio out. One advantage is that by using just two of the same-sized drivers, the Micro III uses less power and requires four AA batteries. The unit comes with a wall adapter, ten-button remote control, and one dock adapter with rubber sizing pads for different devices.Read more ›
Bad: does not cope with the least intrusive form of iPhone wrapping: the phone must be removed from it's protective cover in order to properly connect to the dock. Also while the unit is compatible with 4-th generation iPhones as well as iPod-touch models, it is not plug-n-play. The adapter has a rubber bumper for each of the two form factors, and it is not a simple matter to make the switch from one to the other.
Overall, if you are willing to use this dock for either an iPhone or for an iPod, the flexibility of control and quality of sound is impressive: you won't be disappointed. Having a very flexible protective "wrapper" for your iPhone (i.e. all silicone rubber) will facilitate simple removal of the phone for dropping onto this dock and make having to fuss with the case less of an issue.
