Berlin, Germany – HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, introduces JBL Voyager, the world's first portable speaker with an advanced subwoofer docking system. Detach the portable speaker and it becomes a wireless Bluetooth, go-anywhere, hi-fi speaker with a built-in SoundClear® echo and noise free speakerphone.
“JBL Voyager is utterly original,” said Michael Mauser, President of HARMAN Lifestyle, “and just like the name says, it's engineered not just for great sound, but for effortless mobility.”
JBL Voyager's dual drivers and subwoofer bring you all the sonic muscle-power the world has come to expect from a full-range JBL home audio system. HARMAN knows how consumers use technology, so they've added an AUX-in audio jack and USB port for charging smartphones and tablets to the JBL Voyager.
Users can also undock the portable Bluetooth® speaker out of the main system and roam with hi-fi sound throughout the home or office. The portable speaker features custom drivers, a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that gives five hours of uninterrupted playtime, and a speakerphone system equipped with SoundClear® noise and echo cancellation technology. JBL Voyager is a groundbreaking device from JBL.
