JBL announced the OnBeat Rumble, a wireless iPod speaker dock with oversized subwoofer offering thumping bass the listener will feel. The Lightning connector dock is compatible with iPhone 5, iPad mini, and 4th-generation iPad as well as Bluetooth enabled devices.
The JBL OnBeat Rumble pumps out 50 watts of power with booming bass. HARMAN’s exclusive TrueStream technology ensures the highest-quality sound when streaming audio from an Apple product or another smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth connection. The forceful speaker dock combines a 4-1/2-inch (114-milllimeter) subwoofer with proprietary Slipstream port technology to deliver pounding bass with low distortion, so there is no unwanted boominess to the sound whether the music source is docked or streamed. The loudspeaker charges Apple Lightning products when they are docked.
Also, you can download a DJ mixer app from the Apple App Store, so when the JBL OnBeat Rumble dock is connected to an iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth wireless, users can scratch, stream and mix their favorite playlists for a music party.
“The JBL OnBeat Rumble is the premiere speaker dock in our growing portfolio of Lightning-equipped audio products. The bass performance is unmatched in the market, and music fans will hear the truth with this special speaker,” said Sachin Lawande, executive vice president of HARMAN and co-president of HARMAN Lifestyle and Infotainment.
