It utilizes the 2.4GHz frequency range and claims to have an operating distance of up to 25m (70 feet). In addition, the transmitter/receiver module can be used with up to two pairs of JBL On Air speakers.

Available in a black finish, the magnetically shielded speakers feature a 13mm (1/2-inch) titanium laminate dome tweeter, a 100mm (4-inch) high-excursion woofer and 30 watts of built-in amplification. The speakers are also supplied with wall-mount brackets.
