we know. by now you probably already given up on docking your iOS device to a sound dock (it just sound so passe, doesn’t it?) and the safer bet for compatibility sake for your iOS device is probably AirPlay. however, finding an AirPlay-enabled speaker that’s truly portable ain’t an easy task until now. meet the JBL SoundFly Air, an AirPlay-enabled WiFi speaker that you can stream high-quality audio from your computer running iTunes or just about any iOS devices. it can be yours for a little under 200 bucks. what? you don’t have any iDevices? fret not, there’s also a Bluetooth version (simply called SoundFly) going for $179 a pop. whichever you choose, you will still get 20 watts of full spectrum sound and the same sleek design that we thought JBL never fails to deliver. oh, there’s a free app for both version that gives you additional functionality such as browsing your music with cover art, control the volume and tone, and a fully customizable digital signal processing. click through for some larger views.
