JBL On Tour audio system
today introducted JBL On Tour, a new portable audio system described as "slightly larger than an eyeglass case and roughly the size of two iPods." The portable audio system utilizes a stereo pair of Odyssey transducers and features six watts of total power. On Tour comes equipped with touch volume controls, an integrated protective cover and stand, and white-chrome accents. Four standard AAA batteries provide more than 24 hours of operation at normal listening levels. JBL On Tour is compatible with all digital music players and personal CD/DVD players as well as laptop and desktop computers. It will ship in early August for $100.
