JBL wows with “conversation-starting” iPad speaker dock


JBL, an American audio electronics company, is drumming up the OnBeat, an awesome-looking $150 iPad speaker dock that also works with the iPhone, iPod touch or other audio sources hooked up via a 3.5 millimeter auxiliary hack. It comes with a standard 30-pin dock connector allowing you to charge and sync your iOS device, even when the system itself is off.

The JBL OnBeat™ loudspeaker dock is what your iPad has been waiting for – the first JBL® dock to deliver realistic, high-output sound from any Apple iOS device. A universal connector firmly docks iPad, iPod and iPhone devices and lets you rotate iPod and iPhone screens to portrait or landscape orientation for the best video display. The JBL OnBeat docking station features dual Phoenix full-range transducers with computer-optimized DSP equalization for a richly detailed 360-degree soundstage, an IR remote puts you in full control of system functions and music navigation from across the room, and an AC power supply keeps your devices charged when docked. With an optional composite cable, the JBL OnBeat system can even send video content on to your TV for the whole crowd to enjoy. You’ve had your iPad, iPod and iPhone devices all to yourself for long enough – and the JBL OnBeat dock makes sharing easy.

The JBL OnBeat dock is compact enough to fit just about anywhere you and your friends get together – and it’s engineered to be the life of the party. If music is important to you, you should be hearing it the way it was meant to be heard, whenever and wherever you listen. The JBL OnBeat dock is here to make that happen.

What’s in a name?
Even if you’ve never owned a JBL® product, you’ve almost certainly heard the JBL sound. It rings out loud and clear from the massive JBL loudspeaker arrays that hang in stadiums, sports arenas and outdoor concert venues everywhere. It literally surrounds you in more than 50 percent of all movie theaters worldwide, including many THX-certified installations (a standard of realism that JBL engineers helped pioneer in 1983). Chances are, many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors – they’ve been the choice of audio professionals for more than 60 years. But you don’t have to venture far from home to experience the legendary power, clarity and technical accuracy of the JBL sound. It’s available in exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques originally developed for our professional systems. It’s even available in lightweight, portable packages that you and your friends can enjoy anywhere.
