JBL On Stage 3
Advantages: Innovative and won't break the party budget
Disadvantages: Sound quality at low volumes
The most ovious advantage of the JBL on stage 3 is the fact that is far more portable than many of its competitors in the market today. Furthermore the docking station runs on either batteries or connected to a mains power supply meaning it is ideal for any situation. The docking station is also comparable with all of the well known Apple IPods except for the Shuffle.
For the price the quality is very good and I have found this to be particularly apparent at load volumes. The volume selection levels could do with work because there seem to me to be few low volume settings. On the lowest volume setting is becomes noticeable that very often a quiet muffling noise can be heard and this becomes worse when the product is playing songs at the same time as charging an IPod. That said for the price to me it outperformed expectations and at louder volumes it has the feel of a product much more expensive than what it is.
Well yes but I must say that I struggled to find many more than the two small things that could do with addressing. Firstly the muffling problem can be quite apparent at low volumes, secondly is the fact the battery usage is high. One minor design flaw is that the flat top surface of the docking station does seem to harbour dust a bit.
Summary: Bes product of its type in that price range
