JBL OnBeat Micro and JBL Venue LT are first iPhone Speaker Docks with Lightning

HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces availability of the first two JBL speaker docks built to support the new Apple iPhone 5, iPad Mini, new iPod models and the revised iPad with Retina display. The JBL OnBeat Micro ($99) and JBL Venue LT ($199, right) include the new Apple Lightning connector, the small, reversible, all-digital connector that allowed Apple to create thinner and faster iOS devices.

The two JBL speakers, the first in the market with the new Lightning connector, offer users great flexibility in accessing audio content. The super-portable JBL OnBeat Micro (below) is battery powered and ideal for road warriors, students or anyone else who wants outstanding performance from a go-anywhere Lightning speaker. The JBL OnBeat Venue LT is a robust tabletop speaker dock featuring dual full-range drivers and Slipstream port technology for powerful bass and a remarkably wide soundstage. Ideal for the iPad Mini and iPad with Retina display, the JBL OnBeat Venue LT includes HARMAN's exclusive TrueStream™ guarantee of the highest-quality sound when connecting any Apple product or any other smartphone and tablet via Bluetooth connection. Both JBL speakers charge the new Apple Lightning products when docked.

"JBL was among the very first audio companies to build a docking station for the Apple iPod, and we continue our leadership as we are first in the market with new Lightning connector docking products. These powered speaker systems match the flexibility users want while providing a high-quality performance," said Sachin Lawande, executive vice president of HARMAN and co-president of HARMAN Lifestyle and Infotainment. "The JBL OnBeat Venue LT offers high-quality, proprietary driver technology and advanced digital audio software; it will deliver a truly robust listening experience to owners of the new iPad Mini and refreshed iPad. The JBL OnBeat Micro goes wherever you go, a feature increasingly important in our mobile society. With either model, music fans will hear the truth."

The JBL OnBeat Micro is an ultra-portable, acoustically sophisticated speaker that fits easily into a backpack, purse or briefcase. The JBL OnBeat Micro provides up to 5 hours of playback when used with batteries and charges the iPhone 5, the iPod touch 5th generation and the new iPod nano when used with the included AC adapter. The portable speaker also includes a built-in USB connector to power and play other portable devices. The JBL OnBeat Micro includes a free, downloadable JBL music app to create customized playlists, adjust volume and browse album artwork.

The JBL OnBeat VenueLT features a hidden Lightning dock connector behind the JBL logo at the speaker's base. Ideal for the iPad Mini and revised iPad with Retina display, HARMAN's exclusive TrueStream Bluetooth wireless streaming technology allows the JBL OnBeat Venue LT to connect with up to eight devices, providing additional device flexibility. The JBL OnBeat Venue LT includes the free, downloadable MusicFlow™ app, which allows users to create customized playlists, edit mixes, adjust volume and EQ settings, and browse album artwork.

The JBL OnBeat Micro has a suggested retail price of $99, and the JBL OnBeat Venue LT has a suggested retail price of $199.
