Logitech has introduced a set of speakers designed specifically for laptop use. The Logitech V20 laptop speakers are compact and lightweight and target the growing market of mobile workers and the increase of digital music downloads.
The company sees laptop audio becoming increasingly important and in need of high-quality audio.
"Logitech is bringing our expertise in audio to the people who own laptops," said Ray Weikel, Logitech's director of product marketing for audio. "We designed the V20 laptop speakers with portability, quality and affordability in mind. We removed the power brick to provide a lightweight solution with less cords and focused on quality sound so listening to music from a laptop computer is a now great experience."
The Logitech V20 laptop speakers are USB powered and require no additional cables. The speakers will work with both PC and Mac laptop computers. They include a collapsible stand on each satellite, and come with a protective travel case, making it easy to organize cables while shielding the speakers from bumps and scratches.
Logitech has integrated multimedia controls (play, pause, stop, skip forward and back, volume, and mute) into the top of the speakers.
The Logitech V20 laptop speakers will be available in the U.S. beginning in September and Europe in October. The speakers will have a suggested retail price of US$79.99.
