You can stream audio to the speakers anywhere in your home – simply plug them into an outlet and you're good to go.
JBL's SoundFly speakers aren't exactly going to dominate your home theater, but if you want to listen to music around the house, they offer you a new way to do it. SoundFly speakers are fairly simple. They plug into your AC outlet and play music streamed to them from your device of choice.
There are two different varieties of speakers. The SoundFly BT gives you a Bluetooth connection so you can stream from your phone for $179, while the SoundFly Air packs in AirPlay and Wi-Fi for use with a computer or Apple device.
The speakers themselves are about seven inches wide and plugs right in to an AC outlet. The sound won't be staggering, and the amp only puts out five watts to each of two channels, but it gets audio where you need it. If you're listening to a podcast or book-on-tape that you don't want to pause, or if you simply want some tunes going in the kitchen, the SoundFly might be the right setup.
