JBL introduces its first audio transducer for the iPad, iPod and iPhone -- the OnBeat speaker dock.

The OnBeat speaker dock features a universal connector that will let users dock their iPhone, iPad or iPod in both portrait and landscape modes — which, according to JBL, could come in handy for watching movies.

The JBL OnBeat is compatible with any device on Apple’s operating system, and manageable by the rotating the dock connector “which makes it possible to browse through playlists or watch videos”.

Also among the dock speakers’ features are the dual Phoenix full-range transducers with computer-optimized DSP equalization, an IR remote that will allow users to control the system functions and music navigation from across the room, and an AC power supply that keeps your devices charged when docked.

It also has an optional composite cable for TV connection. Available in black or white, the JBL OnBeat will be available on April from the Apple Store for $149.95.

After raising the white flag in the MP3 player battle, Sony is still sure to not walk away from the music domain. The corporation remains competitive when it comes to speaker systems.

Sony iRDP-X50iP, a portable speaker dock made with iPhone-and-iPod compatibility in mind, conveys this no-retreat message. Its minimal design speaks of Sony’s flair for elegance. But this sleek style only outlines internal power, all 40 watts of it in the system.

Certifiably compatible with the iPhone and recent iPods, Sony’s new baby also functions with a bass reflex speaker design, aux input, soft-touch controls, Mega Bass audio enhancement circuitry, and remote control with full iPod control capability. All of these in the asking price of $199.

This Apple iDevices-friendly speaker is handy as handy can get, measuring 14.1 by 6.3 by 6 in inches. No announcement yet when the iRDP-X50iP will debut in the market, but some online retailers have opened it for pre-order.
