Overview: JBL Soundgear BTA is a wearable personal wireless speaker for
hands-free and ears-free listening. This horseshoe-shaped device rests lightly
on your shoulders and contours to the shape of your neck for a comfortable fit.
The up-firing Quad transducers surround your head with the JBL Signature Sound.
Because your ears aren't covered, you can stay aware of your surroundings.
Intuitive controls are located near the ends, so they're always within reach.
With the included Bluetooth wireless transmitter connected to your TV, you can
immerse yourself in a movie or music videos. Soundgear BTA is powered by a rechargeable battery, and comes with
USB charging cable. The transmitter uses USB power.
Wireless Transmitter: Soundgear BTA includes a small
wireless Bluetooth transmitter that takes the audio signal from your TV and
transmits it wirelessly to your Soundgear device. You can connect the
transmitter via optical digital or analog cables (cables included). A switch on
the front panel lets you switch between "Aux" (analog) and "SPDIF" (digital).
With aptX Low Latency, the video and audio are perfectly synchronized, giving
you an enhanced movie or music video experience. Up to 2 devices can be paired
to the transmitter at one time, and up to 8 devices can be stored in its memory.
The transmitter is powered by a USB wall charger (not included).
Bluetooth: The device has Bluetooth 4.2 with HFP v1.6, HSP v1.2, A2DP
v1.3, and AVRCP v1.5 profiles. Wireless range is approximately 30 feet. You can
pair the unit with up to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, and seamlessly
switch between them as desired.
Quad Transducers: Soundgear BTA is equipped with four 31mm (roughly
1-1/4") drivers to give you an immersive experience in your own personal sound
zone. Bass Boost gives the speakers extra power in the low frequencies to help
you feel your music as well as hear it. The built-in amplifier outputs 3W x 2
Dual Microphones: The wearable personal speaker has two microphones so
you can wirelessly make hands-free phone calls. Echo-canceling technology helps
to make your phone conversations crystal clear.
Controls: Soundgear BTA has intuitive controls that make it easy to
control your music or phone calls without taking off the device. On one side are
the power and Bluetooth buttons, and the LED indicator. On the other side are
volume, music playback, and phone call controls. Music controls include volume
+/volume -, play/pause, next track, and previous track. Phone controls are
answer call, end call, reject call. The Bluetooth button also lets you switch
between two paired sources.
