Logitech is expanding 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 extended battery life and extremely portable form factors.
The products target two different markets, one being designed specifically for the iPod, while the second one works with any MP3 player.
The Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod offers customized iPod features 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.
It also 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.
An added 3D Stereo technology widens the stereo image, enhancing the audio experience.
The Logitech mm50 portable speakers for iPod are included in Apple's "Made for iPod" program and 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 USA and in Europe for a suggested retail price in the US$149.99.
The Logitech mm28 portable speakers offer an ultra-thin solution and 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.
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. The input cable fits into a recessed area on the back panel.
The speakers can be powered by either the included AC adapter or by four AA batteries, and can last up to 45 hours on a single set of batteries. The Logitech mm28 portable speakers will be available in September in the USA and in Europe for a suggested retail price in the US$79.99.
