JBL On Stage IV review: JBL On Stage IV


JBL On Stage IV

The JBL On Stage IV has the look of modern art and offers a practical, portable solution for charging and listening to your iPod or iPhone.

In spite of the JBL name and four-driver design, the On Stage sounds anemic for the price.

We understand buying the JBL On Stage for its unique look, but there are better-sounding options available.

JBL On Stage IV


It may be technically portable, but the slightly overpriced JBL On Stage IV seems more suited for a bedside or desktop iPod dock, delivering quality audio performance at moderate volume levels.

Portable. Quality audio performance at moderate levels. Remote control offers full iPod navigation.

Bass distorts at high volumes. Requires six AA batteries to operate without AC power. Remote control buttons are over-sensitive.

JBL OnStage IV iPod Speaker Sounds Good, But Off Stage


The OnStage IV is not meant to be played on stage, a small room fits it best.

That name comes for a price!

Wobbly connector ...


The gadget attachment point is probably under-dimensioned and hence it leads to a 'wobbly' connection... and that leads to distortion in the music output. The end result is that the gadget (eg. iPod) needs to be 'adjusted' carefully. Any shake will...
