JBL intros On Stage IV, Micro III docks with wild designs

JBL On Stage iPod docks get fan blade design

JBL revamped its iPhone and iPod speaker docks in unusual fashion today, launching the On Stage IV and On Stage Micro III. Both make a sharp break from earlier design and use a new "weave" design reminiscent of a fan blade. Audio output doesn't change with the new design, which includes four transducers on the full-size On Stage and two in the Micro.

Apart from speaker output, the two continue to differ mostly in portability. The On Stage IV can run for a full day of music on six AA batteries. On Stage Micro III takes up a smaller footprint and uses four AAA batteries to play for the same length of time. Either bundles an IR remote and can sync with a computer over USB as well as charge an iPhone or iPod, even when the speakers are turned off.

Either JBL system is available now, only in black and at prices of $180 for the On Stage IV and $120 for the On Stage Micro III.

    Opera House in Sydney

    Looks like these speakers were inspired by the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Or a pile of dishes in a drying rack.
