JBL On Air Wireless Speaker with AirPlay Makes the Rounds

Pfft, pretty much all iPod speaker docks are the same right? The JBL On Air is a little bit of a different beast, though, since it makes use of the AirPlay wireless streaming. That and, well, the “halo” design is pretty sweet too.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this design or this technology, but JBL has officially come forward to officially announce this speaker. You can use your AirPlay-enabled Mac or iOS device (4.2+) to stream your tunes from some distance away. The little screen on the On Play will show the current track information.

The rest of the specs aren’t as exciting — dual alarm clock, FM radio, USB port for firmware updates — but I guess they’re still worth mentioning. Pricing, which just so happens to be an important tidbit, has not yet been announced but JBL expects to start selling this rounded out speaker in the spring.

Beyonce’s Halo track not included.
