Harman Multimedia’s Portable Music Box Is Set to Travel
JBL On Tour and iPod provide high-quality sound for music on the move

NORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA – July 13, 2004 – Harman Multimedia, a leading
provider of audio products for the computer industry, today announced the
introduction of

JBL On Tour, a portable audio system designed to meet the demands of
students, professionals and consumers on the go. Slightly larger than an
eyeglass case and roughly the size of two iPods, JBL On Tour is the
ultimate addition to any digital music player, personal CD player, or
laptop or desktop computer.

JBL On Tour’s portability encourages consumers to share their music,
providing them with sound at home, at their desks or on the road. The
combination of unique and innovative design with advanced speaker
technology provides a clean and clear audio experience. The portable audio
system utilizes a stereo pair of Odyssey transducers and features six watts
of total power. On Tour comes equipped with touch volume controls, an
integrated protective cover and stand, and white-chrome accents. The use of
four standard AAA batteries provides more than 24 hours of operation at
normal listening levels.

“The popularity of digital music players has exploded in recent years and
what has been missing is a portable, attractive, and great-sounding set of
speakers to complement any digital music player – such as iPod,” said Joe
Milano, Harman Multimedia’s director of strategic accounts. “Harman
Multimedia’s JBL On Tour was developed specifically for the music lover on
the go, delivering high-quality sound in the palm of the hand.”

JBL On Tour is compatible with all digital music players and personal
CD/DVD players as well as laptop and desktop computers. With a suggested
retail price of $99.95, JBL On Tour will be available, in early August,
