OnBeat Mini a First for JBL

OnBeat Mini a First for JBL

The latest Apple devices have a unique connector. That’s why JBL’s first portable speaker dock which works with the latest Apple iPads and iOS devices, has what’s called a Lightning connector.

A ‘use anywhere-anytime’  a portable speaker/charging dock, the OnBeat Mini has a rechargeable battery good for five hours of heavy duty grooving when you’re moving.

Said to have a typical JBL room filling, thrilling sound quality, the OnBeat Mini is fitted with two full-range drivers powered by a pair of  Class-D amplifiers. Signal massaging is via a built in processor.

Geoff Matthews, Convoys main man and the bloke you can thank for a swathe of great products in Australia including B&W, Monster Classe and Harman, is excited about JBL’s new baby boomer.

"In comparisons with models twice the price, the OnBeat Mini was easily as good sounding. That’s hardly surprising given JBL’s amazing speaker history," he said.

As de rigueur these days, the OneBeat has a USB connector to fire up other personal portables and mobile devices, audio devices.

With its arrival JBL now has an arsenal of docks-the OnBeat Venue LT and OnBeat Micro. Available in black or white, the JBL OnBeat Mini sells for $179 (RRP) and is available only from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman stores.
