JBL On Stage Speaker System: Big Music from a Small Device
What you'll find in this article...
A long, long time ago, I won an iPod at a friend’s company Christmas Party. I put on my biggest smile as I reluctantly claimed my prize. A few hours with my new iPod reminded me of why I was reluctant. I don’t like wearing ear buds. The iPod was tossed in a desk drawer because I didn’t enjoy the sound of its music ringing in my ears.
As we were moving into our new home, I came across that old iPod. It still worked and it still contained every bit of those 2,500 songs it had been entrusted to store and play those many moons ago.
We wanted the music back but we had a problem. We needed a better listening experience than those uncomfortable ear buds and we wanted the music to permeate every inch of our new home.
Easy on the Pocketbook
Buying a new home was a big drain on our savings account and we didn’t want to spend a lot of money for a stereo system. After hours of shopping, we found the JBL On Stage Micro II Speaker System. JBL speakers have a long history of incredible sounds and this little speaker system appeared to have a ton of features packed into a small box.
Here are the reasons why we decided to purchase the JBL On Stage Micro II Speaker System:
Longevity: JBL has been building sound systems since 1927 and is known around the world for its high quality.
Price: Sound quality like this can cost hundreds of dollars. All we needed was a couple of $20 bills to create a concert in our living room.
Compact Size: There’s no surface too small for this compact stereo system. All we need is a 6 inch surface to enjoy our music collection.
Easy to Use: The days of charging devices is over. The JBL On Stage system charges both iPods and iPhones as it plays. And, the remote control lets us skip over our unfavorite songs no matter where we may be standing in the room. We just get some zippy audio and crank it up.
Portable: We can put these stereo speakers any place in our home. When we want music outside, the device can be unplugged and operated on batteries.
Awesome Sound. We forget that we’re not listening to a large stereo system. The music rings clear and loud.
The JBL On Stage Speaker System comes with two iPhone/iPod adapters. When we attached each adapter to the system and put the iPod in the cradle, the player rocked and rolled every time it was touched. Neither of these adapters worked correctly, the iPod needed to sit tightly.
To fix this problem, we rummaged around and found the adapter that came with the iPod. This adapter worked perfectly and the iPod sits snugly in the speaker system.
Don’t Put This Baby In the Corner
When the JBL speakers arrived, we put the system on an out-of-the-way bookshelf while we moved into our new home. The music that came from this tiny system sounded good, but not what we expected.
After we were settled and began setting up our office, the JBL speakers were moved to the desk which sits in the middle of the great room. The change in the stereo sound was enormous. We can finally hear the music the way it was intended to be heard.
Crystal clear and distortion free!
Get the Party Started
We love our new JBL On Stage Micro II Speaker System so much that we are designating a small area in our great room as a dance floor. Move the chairs, crank up the tunes and let the concert begin! We’ll see you later.
