JBL releases the OnBeat Extreme (model JBLONBEATXTAM), a high-performance loudspeaker dock for iOS devices with Bluetooth. Featuring a rotating connector, the speaker system docks not only iPad but also iPhone and iPod, in portrait or landscape orientation for best viewing. Other than the dock, the OnBeat Extreme supports Bluetooth connectivity for wireless music playback. Using built-in microphone, users can even make or receiver calls on any paired Bluetooth mobile phones. It also charges docked iOS devices.
The OnBeat Extreme features JBL Ridge tweeters and Atlas woofers offer computer-optimized DSP equalization, and it delivers 30 watts of amplification to each of its four transducers for crystal-clear high-output sound. The docking station even provides composite output for showing video content on TV, and comes with a RF remote control that navigates from up to 30 feet in any direction.
JBL’s OnBeat Extreme comes with the company’s stylish Dynamic Weave design, and is compact enough to fit virtually anywhere. It is available for $499 at Amazon.com.
