JBL OnBeat Xtreme for iPad tipped in UK

JBL has gobs of speaker docks for the iPhone and the iPad tablets. The latest of these docks has been announced for launch in the UK soon and it is called the JBL OnBeat Xtreme. This is the latest docking station and it is designed specifically to fit the iPad and iPad 2 tablets. The dock the Xtreme uses rotates so that the iPhone and iPod touch can dock as well.

Other than the dock for playing music, the Xtreme also has Bluetooth technology for streaming audio from non-dockable devices and a 3.5mm input. The Xtreme also has an integrated mic to allow it to be used as a speaker phone. The microphone uses DSP and has echo cancellation for better sound quality. The Xtreme is engineered for high quality sound according to JBL.

It has dual Atlas bass drivers and Ridge tweeters both using DSP equalization. The docking station can be controlled using the OnBeat Xtreme app that is on the App Store as a free download. This app gives control over playlists, EQ settings, and the user can set alarms. The dock also has an RF remote for changing tracks from other rooms. The OnBeat Xtreme will sell for £399.99 in the UK.
