Portable Audio for Your Laptop: Logitech Announces Speaker Designed for Netbooks and Laptops
Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 Delivers Big Sound for Small Computers
FREMONT, Calif. — March 2, 2010 — Laptop and netbook computers are portable and powerful enough to do everything you love such as enjoying music, movies and video calls. But as computers have become smaller, audio quality has often been sacrificed. To enhance the audio quality of your favourite tunes and movies, today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech® Laptop Speaker Z205 — a lightweight speaker with a clip-on design that lets you pump up the volume wherever you take your laptop.
“While people love the portability of their laptop computer, they are often missing out on the immersive listening experience that external speakers provide,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “When designing the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205, we wanted to help people get better audio while enjoying their favourite shows or music without sacrificing portability. The Laptop Speaker Z205 is tiny enough to toss in your bag, but delivers big sound.”
Whether you use a Mac® or a Windows®-based laptop or a netbook, the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 securely attaches to the top of most laptop screens. The Laptop Speaker Z205 is also small — approximately 1.35 inches thick and 2.5 inches tall — which means you'll always be able to take it with you. And the included carrying case protects your speaker while inside your briefcase or backpack.
Now, when you’re watching your favourite show, listening to Last.fm™, or making a video call, you’ll enjoy rich, full stereo sound thanks to two high-performance drivers, a built-in amplifier and an acoustically tuned enclosure. And you can easily adjust the volume as well as turn the speaker on and off using the buttons located on the top of the speaker. The included USB cable is all you need for power and audio — there’s no need for an external power supply — so simply plug the Z205 into your computer and start enjoying your entertainment.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe for a suggested retail price of €49.99 beginning in March.
