It’s a mobile world out there and Logitech sure knows it as it launches two new portable speakers – the mm50 model, geared specifically for the iPod, and the mm28 model, an ultra thin speaker that uses flat panel technology.
The mm50 portable speaker is expected to hit stores in September for US $149.99. It’s a plug-n-play speaker for easy connectivity with your iPod or iPod mini. A dock connector that also recharges the iPod’s battery when it is connected into an AC adapter is a bonus. The mm50 model also comes with a rechargeable battery capable of up to 10 hours of audio between charges.
The mm28 portable speaker follows the ‘thin is in’ route. Being only 1.24 inches thick and as such can be easily carried with you anywhere your iPod goes. It is powered by NXT flat-panel technology and is quite versatile. It can be used with your MP3 player, CD player, DVD player, and just about anything else that comes with a standard headphone jack output.
“Many people want to share their digital music with friends, or listen to tunes out loud… 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 speaker lineup.” according to Ray Weikel, director of product marketing for Logitech’s Audio Business Unit.
