HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces the availability of three new, ultra-portable JBL ® speakers built for superior on-the-go music enjoyment from a smartphone or tablet. The compact speakers – the JBL Flip (right), JBL Micro Wireless and JBL Micro II – easily fit into a backpack or back pocket and are ideal for business travel, dorm rooms or a second bedroom. Each speaker includes a built-in bass port to deliver a deep, more resonant sound than comparably sized portable speakers.

The three ultra-portable JBL speakers range from $39 to $99 and work with virtually any music-playing gadget, including the Apple iPad, iPhone or iPod touch as well as Android ™ smartphones or tablets and BlackBerry ® or Windows ® Mobile phones. Each features a convenient, rechargeable battery that provides up to five hours of playing time. Two speakers – the JBL Flip and JBL Micro Wireless – connect via Bluetooth® wireless or through a cable, while the JBL Micro Wireless and JBL Micro II can be daisy-chained with other JBL Micro speakers to create a significantly larger – and louder – soundscape. “These ultra-portable JBL speakers were designed specifically for the on-the-go music lover who wants a quality audio performance with portability – a desirable feature set that JBL, thanks to its pioneering role in audio development, is uniquely positioned to deliver,” said Sachin Lawande, executive vice president of HARMAN and co-president of HARMAN Lifestyle and Infotainment. “We are providing technically sophisticated speakers with high-performance drivers and built-in bass ports in small packages so music fans will hear the truth. The sound is very impressive.”
