JBL audio has announced the launch of a couple new audio accessories for Apple gadgets that use the new Lightning connector. The docks will work with the iPhone 5 and iPad mini and promise to work with updated iPads and iPods. The new devices include the JBL OnBeat Micro and the JBL Venue LT.
JBL says that these two new speakers are the first on the market to support the new Lightning Connector. The OnBeat Micro is a battery-powered speaker dock aimed at mobile users, students, and anyone else looking for audio performance on the go. The OnBeat Venue LT is a larger tabletop speaker dock with dual full-range drivers.
The Venue LT also has JBL Slipstream port technology for enhanced bass and TrueStream technology for high-quality sound via Bluetooth. The Micro can operate for up to five hours on battery power alone and can be used with an included AC adapter. It also has an integrated USB connection to our other portable devices on the go.
The Venue LT has a hidden Lightning dock connector behind the JBL logo on the front and can be paired with up to eight devices via Bluetooth. Both devices support the MusicFlow application from JBL to allow users to create customized playlists, adjust volume, and browse through album artwork. The Micro will sell for $99 and the Venue LT will sell for $199.
