[TECH] Streaming Music Anywhere with JBL On Air


If you're a music fanatic like me, you listen to music everywhere you can. What becomes complicated is where to store all of that digital music. I maintain tunes on my HP Envy laptop, several external hard drives, an iPad, a couple of old iPods and my beloved Blackberry from Virgin Mobile.

Getting the music experience streamlined across all of these devices is a challenge, but Rdio has been really helpful lately to beam music into the cloud and listen to it everywhere and from every single player device I use.

The savvy speaker pros of JBL have come up with a cool solution to play music (or any audio for that matter) from a brand-new speaker product. It's the On Air Wireless - a rather futuristic-looking product that will shine brightly on your desk, kitchen counter or night stand. What's so cool about this JBL product is that you can wirelessly stream you music from your iPhone, iPod, iPad or TouchSmart or any other PC product. Not via Bluetooth (which can be spotty), but via your WiFi connection.

Set up is extremely easy. Grab it out of the box, turn it on and one of the first things the clear and large display will ask you to do is to to select your local WiFi signal to connect to. As soon as that selection is made, you can pick the JBL On Air Wireless as the device's external speakers. That's all. The large display also pictures album art as it is shown on your mobile device or in iTunes.

The sound quality of JBL external speakers is solid. For reviewing and sampling music, I prefer to use my Beats by Dre headphones from HP to gather the full depth of the music, but for everyday use the JBL On Air Wireless is a snazzy product that allows you to cut the wires and listen to your music in and around your home easily.
