CES 2013 : New Harman Products

Alongside recently launched products from Harman International’s three brands AKG, Harman Kardon and JBL, visitors to the world’s largest consumer electronics show will get an exclusive preview of the latest Lightning Connector dock, wireless loudspeaker, on-the-go portable speaker and AVR range at the Harman booth; all of which will launch in the coming months.

JBL Charge

Music fans seeking great sound and a long battery life from a portable music player will love the JBL® Charge, a loud and powerful go-anywhere wireless speaker that fits easily into a backpack, beach bag or briefcase. The JBL Charge connects to smartphones, portable music players and tablets via Bluetooth wireless streaming. It also includes a USB port to charge a smartphone or tablet.

JBL OnBeat Mini

JBL was first to market with its Lightning Connector speaker docks, introducing the JBL OnBeat Micro and JBL OnBeat Venue LT in November 2012. CES 2013 sees JBL introduce the third addition to its innovative Lightning Connector range, the OnBeat Mini.

The acoustically sophisticated JBL OnBeat Mini fits into a backpack or travel bag, providing a portable charging dock for the office, business trip or bedroom. The JBL OnBeat Mini includes two full-range transducers and built-in digital signal processing to deliver crisp, room-filling sound. It is compatible with the iPad mini, iPad 4th generation, iPhone 5 and the new iPod models.

JBL OnBeat Rumble

The JBL OnBeat Rumble wireless loudspeaker, for the iPhone 5, iPad mini, fourth-generation iPad and other Lightning-equipped Apple Inc. mobile devices, will thrill music fans who love to live loud. It includes HARMAN’s exclusive TrueStream technology to guarantee the highest-quality sound when streaming audio from an Apple product or another smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth® connection. The forceful speaker dock combines a 4-1/2-inch (114-milllimeter) subwoofer with proprietary Slipstream port technology to deliver pounding bass with low distortion, so there is no unwanted boominess to the sound whether the music source is docked or streamed. The loudspeaker also charges Apple Lightning products when they are docked.

Harman Kardon AVR 270 and AVR 370

Designed to delight music and film lovers with breathtaking sound and video reproduction, the Harman Kardon AVR 270 and AVR 370 (right), have multizone features so users can simultaneously play two different audio sources in two different zones.

The two Harman Kardon AVRs include multiple wireless features, including AirPlay playback from any Apple iOS® device and vTuner™ Internet radio to connect with thousands of terrestrial and Web-based stations and podcasts from around the globe as well as DLNA 1.5

Certified® connectivity to stream from compatible devices on a home network. The Harman Kardon AVR 370 also includes Wi-Fi® connectivity. There is also a free, downloadable HK remote control app that controls the AVRs from Apple and Android™ smartphones or tablets.

All of the above products are on display, alongside key products from the AKG, Harman Kardon and JBL brands, during CES® at the HARMAN booth – Central Hall, booth number 10431 - from January 8th through to January 11th.
