Logitech Expands Portfolio of Speakers for Mobile Music, Adds High-End
Portable System for iPod
New Innovative Portable Speakers Offer High-Quality Sound and Advanced Features
FREMONT, Calif. — Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), a leading provider
of multimedia speakers, has expanded its mobile music product offering with
the introduction of two new speaker systems designed specifically for
portable music players. The Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod and
the Logitech mm28 portable speakers, provide people with the high-quality
sound that Logitech speakers are known for, and also solve key problems
with portable speakers by offering extended battery life and extremely
portable form factors.
“Many people want to share their digital music with friends, or listen to
tunes out loud,” said Ray Weikel, director of product marketing for
Logitech’s Audio Business Unit. “And, to do this, they want portable
speakers that are easy to transport, include high-end features, and most
importantly, deliver rich, clean sound. Logitech’s two new portable
speakers — the mm50 and mm28 — will be a welcome addition to the portable
Logitech has developed products that target two different markets — one is
designed specifically for the iPod, and one works with any MP3 player.
Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod
The new performance mobile music speaker system, the Logitech mm50 portable
speakers for iPod, offers customized iPod features, superb sound quality,
and a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The speakers
simultaneously recharge the iPod battery as well as the speaker battery
when powered by the included AC adapter. The speaker battery lasts up to 10
hours per charge. And, the mm50 includes a wireless remote control,
allowing people to adjust the volume, track forward, track back, play and
pause the music without touching the speaker system or the iPod.
By using Max-X high-excursion drivers, which include neodymium magnets, as
well as three inch pressure drivers, Logitech enables people to hear fully
balanced audio, maximum bass response and minimal distortion. And, when
used, the added 3D Stereo technology dramatically widens the stereo image,
enhancing the audio experience these portable speakers deliver. Overall,
the listener will receive superior sound and bass performance from the
Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod.
The Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod are included in Apple’s “Made
for iPod” program. “Made for iPod” means that an electronic accessory has
been designed specifically to connect to the iPod and has been certified by
the developer to meet Apple performance standards.
The mm50 portable speakers for iPod will work with any iPod with a dock
connector on its base, which includes nearly all models sold in the past
two years. The speakers also come with a protective travel case. The
Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod will be available in September in
the U.S. and in Europe for a suggested retail price in the U.S. of $149.99.
Logitech mm28 portable speakers
The Logitech mm28 portable speakers offer an ultra-thin solution that not
only sounds great, but provides tremendous battery life. These speakers can
be used with any MP3 or CD player that has a standard 3.5mm audio jack. The
mm28 speakers use stereo NXT flat-panel technology, which significantly
enhances the bass performance, while still enabling Logitech to offer a
truly portable form factor. The mm28 portable speakers are less than 1.25
inches thin. The speakers include an integrated speaker cover that rotates
to become the speaker foot — so no carrying case is required. And, the
input cable fits into a recessed area on the back panel, providing a truly
portable one-piece speaker system.
The speakers can be powered by either the included AC adapter or by four AA
batteries — the speakers can last up to 45 hours on a single set of
batteries. The Logitech mm28 portable speakers will be available in
September in the U.S. and in Europe for a suggested retail price in the
U.S. of $79.99.
