The Bottom Line A full $50 cheaper than the Bose SoundDock, the JBL On Stage 400P offers a solid alternative for iPod owners who want clear audio and present bass from a reasonably compact speaker. iPod owners who are looking for a basic speaker they can use around the house should consider the JBL On Stage 200iD, a good-sounding option with a futuristic look and a remote control. We understand buying the JBL On Stage for its unique look, but there are better-sounding options available. The Monster Beatbox may not deliver the most refined sonics, but if you're looking for big, aggressive sound from a small box, this is the one you want.
