JBL hints at CES debut of two new portable device speakers
Friday, January 4, 2013 @ 4:10pm

Two new JBL products are expected to launch at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week. Both the JBL Charge portable Bluetooth streaming speaker and the Lightning-equipped docking station JBL OnBeat Rumble will be on display at the JBL booth at the expo, which begins Monday.



The JBL Charge is a stereo speaker with two 40mm full-range drivers and a 2 x 5-watt amplifier. The wireless speaker, two inches (50 millimeters) wide by six inches (150 millimeters) long, provides 12 hours of playback from a single charge from its integral 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery. The JBL Charge is aimed at beach parties, family camping trips, neighborhood picnics and everyday use. JBL Charge has a suggested retail price of $149 and will be available from select retailers or JBL.com during the first quarter of 2013. The JBL OnBeat Rumble includes Harman’s TrueStream technology when streaming audio from an Apple product or another smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth connection. The speaker dock combines a 114-milllimeter subwoofer with proprietary Slipstream port technology to deliver bass with low distortion, whether the music source is docked or streamed. The loudspeaker charges Apple Lightning products when they are docked. The JBL OnBeat Rumble speaker dock has a suggested retail price of $399 and will be available from select retailers or JBL.com in the spring.
