"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.

Lawande further added "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 priced at $99.95 is an ultra-portable, acoustically sophisticated speaker that a user can fit easily in a backpack, purse or briefcase. The JBL OnBeat Micro offers up to five hours of audio playback when used with batteries. A user can also charge compatible iDevices when used with the AC adapter. The speaker also includes a USB connector to power and play other portable devices.JBL OnBeat Venue Lightning

The JBL OnBeat Venue Lightning which has a price tag of $199.95 features a hidden Lightning dock connector behind the JBL logo at the speaker's base. The dock may prove perfect for users who have an iPad mini or the iPad 4. TrueStream, HARMAN's own Bluetooth wireless streaming technology enables the speaker to connect with up to eight compatible devices, providing additional device flexibility.

Users who have the JBL OnBeat Micro or the JBL OnBeat Venue Lightning can download the free JBL music app, which allows users to create customized playlists, edit mixes, adjust volume and EQ settings, and browse album artwork.

Both the speakers should appeal to music lovers with the latest iDevices. The speakers are available from select retailers and directly from JBL's official Web site.
