JBL On Tour Portable Speakers | iLounge



I have owned this set for a few weeks now. I use them in my car because I cannot connect my iPod to my factory stereo and do not want to replace it only to have it stolen. These are a good alternative. I mainly listen to podcasts on it while commuting. I also use them at work for low level music while at my desk instead of headphones because I am concerned about hearing loss while wearing headphones 4-6 hours a day.

I am happy with the sound quality, construction and compact nature of the item. I can fit them in my purse. For such a small package the sound is fantastic.

My main issue is, as others have commented, the cover closes up on itself far too easily. They close up just sitting on a solid, level surface. I fold up a post it note and insert it in the hinge are to stop it from closing so easily. It is frustrating, especially in the car. I can't be fiddling with the speakers while driving. Because of this design flaw I give this item a B+.

How loud is it? I know it's not as loud as the On Stage, but compared to the On Stage, how loud is it? Half as loud? Three fourths?

JBL Direct on eBay sells these and On Stage refurbs with 90 day warranties. Great bargain. I got my On Tours for $30. Don't typically buy refurb, but this was too cheap to pass up.
