JBL® Odyssey® neodymium transducers
JBL On Tour™ iBT is an entertainment system that makes virtually any portable device sound its best. Four JBL® Odyssey® transducers deliver outstanding frequency response (100Hz – 20kHz) with minimal distortion, even at high output levels. Computer-optimized equalization (COE) creates a musical soundscape that is larger and richer relative to other systems of this size, and optimized compression topology (OCT) adjusts the dynamic range for clear, low-distortion sound at high volume levels. You’ll hear your favorite music with accuracy and detail you wouldn’t have thought possible.
Simple to use.
FaceTime and hands-free calling
JBL On Tour™ iBT has a built-in microphone so you can make or receive FaceTime video calls on your iPad or iPhone, and hands-free calls with any Bluetooth phone. Your music will pause for the call and resume when you hang up.
Adjustable tablet kick stand.
It’s like another pair of hands – supporting your tablet computer at just the right angle for typing or sharing photos and videos with friends.
Charges iOS devices when connected to AC power
A USB connector will keep your iPad, iPhone or iPod charged while you listen to music, so you can leave your power adaptors at home when traveling.
Just a touch of the brushed metal touch controls increases or decreases the volume and mutes or unmutes the system.
Aux source stereo 3.5mm jack
The JBL On Tour iBT can be connected to virtually any audio source, including computers, MP3 and CD players.
JBL On Tour™ iBT is compact enough to fit just about anywhere you and your friends get together – and it’s engineered to be the life of the party.
Legendary JBL® sound.
Even if you’ve never owned a JBL® product, you’ve almost certainly heard the JBL sound. It rings out loud and clear from the massive JBL loudspeaker arrays that hang in stadiums, sports arenas and outdoor concert venues everywhere. It literally surrounds you in more than 50 percent of all movie theaters worldwide, including many THX®-certified installations (a standard of realism that JBL engineers helped pioneer in 1983). Chances are, many of your favorite songs and movie soundtracks were mixed and mastered on JBL studio monitors – they’ve been the choice of audio professionals for more than 60 years. But you don’t have to venture far from home to experience the legendary power, clarity and technical accuracy of the JBL sound. It’s available in exceptional home entertainment systems that incorporate many of the same advanced technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques originally developed for our professional systems. It’s even available in lightweight, portable packages that you and your friends can enjoy anywhere.
