Enjoy Your Entire iTunes Library From Any Room in the House - Without Wires
How many songs do you have in your iTunes music library? If you're like many people, you may have more than your iPod, iPhone or even many USB storage devices can carry all at once. So having access to every song and every playlist from any room in your house has never been a simple matter. The JBL On Air Wireless speaker system - the world's first AirPlay speaker with a colour LCD screen - changes all that. It streams iTunes music or Internet radio directly from your computer over your existing Wi-Fi network via AirPlay. You'll enjoy full navigation and playback control using Apple's free Remote app on your iPhone or iPod touch device, and you'll see album artwork and track information on the bright colour display.
But the JBL On Air Wireless doesn't just stream music - it's also a great-sounding iPod/iPhone speaker dock and FM clock radio with RDS and dual alarms. Three advanced JBL transducers in a unique HALO (horizontal acoustic level optimization) configuration deliver rich, full-spectrum JBL sound uniformly, across a wide listening area. Has there ever been a simpler, better sounding way to fill your house with music? (That's a rhetorical question.)
All of Your music - Anywhere - or Everywhere
All of your iTunes songs and playlists. Any FM radio station or Internet radio from iTunes. Anything on your (or someone else's) iPod or iPhone device. The JBL On Air Wireless speaker system offers you more ways to enjoy music from more sources more easily than any system we know of. And with more than one JBL On Air Wireless speaker, you enjoy it all in more than one room at the same time - so you'll never miss a beat no matter where you are. (Don't try that with ordinary speaker docks.)
AirPlay Wireless Music Streaming
AirPlay technology gives you wireless remote access to your entire iTunes music collection, iTunes Internet radio and content from your iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad with full navigation and playback via Apple's free Remote app.
Colour LCD Screen
JBL On Air Wireless is the world's first AirPlay speaker to display album artwork and track metadata on a bright colour screen. See what you're hearing in a choice of five languages, with auto or manual brightness control.
Works with Any Wi-Fi Network
AirPlay is easy to set up and use with virtually any Wi-Fi network, including WPS-protected systems. Configurations for up to four wireless networks can be stored in system memory.
The JBL On Air Wireless lets you play and control music directly from all docking versions of iPod and iPhone, and to charge your devices while docked, so you can wake up to a favourite song or playlist.
Digital FM Radio with RDS and 10 Station Presets
You have easy access to your favourite music, news and talk programming, and you'll see artist, album and track info on the colour LCD screen.
Clock with Dual Alarms
Keep everyone on schedule. Two people can wake at different times to iPod, iPhone, FM or buzzer tone.
Three JBL Transducers with 360-degree HALO Acoustics
Distinct stereo imaging is often less than ideal with desktop sound systems, but the JBL On Air Wireless unique HALO (horizontal acoustic level optimization) design delivers rich, full-spectrum JBL sound uniformly, across a wide listening area.
Proprietary DSP Technologies
The JBL On Air Wireless employs proprietary digital signal processing technologies to maximize sound quality and output under any listening conditions. Computer-optimized equalization (COE) creates a musical soundstage 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.

JBL On Air Black
Top customer reviews
After two months of use, now establishing a connection between all my airplay devices and the JBL has been an absolute nightmare. I have reset the software on the JBL and my devices so many times its unimaginable. I tried to check whether there was a software patch available, but JBL claims that the software is up to date.
Really, really let down by JBL....
The speaker dock is great but if you are buying this as an AirPlay speaker (and you probably are as it's several hundred pounds), be aware that it doesn't work with with the iPhone 4S. With an iPhone 4 it plays audio nicely on AirPlay but if I try to do the same from an iPhone 4S using AirPlay to the JBL On Air Wireless then it plays a maximum of 2 seconds of audio and then stops and you need to pull the mains plug to get AirPlay to work on the speaker again. Both iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are running the latest iOS 5 base public release. Likewise the iPhone 4S streams audio using AirPlay flawlessly to Apple TV 2 without any problems.
This looks to be a fault in the firmware of the JBL On Air Wireless speaker. There is currently no new firmware update, the firmware on the speaker is 22.214.171.124-EMEA.
I was hoping to use this with my new iPhone 4S and not the iPhone 4 but it looks like I won't be able to do that now. I'm considering on returning the product or waiting it out in the hope JBL can fix it in a firmware update. I have contacted JBL and am awaiting a response.
6 MONTHS ON UPDATED REVIEW
So I've had the OnAir for 6 months, Apple came out with numerous OS updates which has fixed the main problem I had, although I never had a problem previously with Airplaying to Apple TV2. So the speaker works really well. However, I do experience frequent music stops/WiFi dropouts most likely due to the number of WiFi devices I have in the house all splattering the spectrum. Taking it to other houses where WiFi activity is low I get no drop outs on music playing whatsoever.
Still I like the speaker but sometimes can get a bit frustrating when music does drop out, but you just hit the play button on the iPhone, then tell it to AirPlay through the JBL speaker and invariably it will start again.
Streaming music from iphone 4 over wireless network using airplay - Works great!
Streaming music from itunes over wireless network using airplay - Works great!
Used as a direct contact doc for my iphone4 - Works great!
You can control the volume and track selection from either the remote or the device from which you're streaming music.
Sound quality is really good for the physical size of the dock, although there are more expensive options available which would probably produce a deeper more bassy sound, but this product is by no means poor quality when it comes to sound output.
4 stars purely because its still quite pricey - But then all Airplay products are.
This always worries me and I have learnt to stay away from products that do not work first time so sent back for refund
rather than replacement
Shame it had all the functionality (in theory) I wanted
Truly a terrible product. Ive just got 3 words for you:- AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!!!!!!!
