We mentioned the JBL On Air Wireless back in December when it hit the FCC and now it’s officially out with an expected “Spring” release date.
The JBL On Air Wireless AirPlay speaker dock is the second wireless AirPlay speaker, after the iHome iW1, but it might be the first to market if it can beat iHome. Time will tell.
On to the details
The JBL On Air Wireless features AirPlay, a color LCD for album art, artist and track info, three JBL transducers (speakers) with 360 degree acoustics, alarm clock, FM radio, iPod/iPhone dock and a USB port for firmware updates.
It also features a unique design which, if you’re using it for an alarm clock, might be mistaken for a UFO on your night table in the middle of the night (if you’re into that kind of thing). The loop houses the three transducers in what JBL calls a HALO (horizontal acoustic level optimization) design which is said to deliver rich full-spectrum sound uniformly across a wide area.
Expected Spring release date and price is unknown.
