Have Tunes, Will Travel: Logitech Unveils Rechargeable iPod Speaker Dock
Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i Delivers Bold Sound for iPod or iPhone, 8-Hour Battery Life
SLOUGH, England — Aug. 4, 2010 — Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the Logitech® Rechargeable Speaker S715i, a portable iPod and iPhone speaker dock that delivers bold sound you can carry around. Great sound quality provided by eight divers lets you rock out anytime while the rechargeable battery lets you take the speakers with you wherever you go.
“With this system, we set out to deliver our next generation in sound quality for an iPod speaker dock,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “The new Rechargeable Speaker S715i offers eight drivers – double our previous iPod docks – and includes a NiMH rechargeable battery so you can take your tunes with you. So go ahead, lose yourself in your music – and never worry about disposable batteries again.”
To bring your music to life, the Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i delivers crisp audio thanks to eight custom-tuned drivers. The S715i uses two three-inch laser-tuned neodymium drivers for a rich mid range, two half-inch neodymium tweeters for crisp high notes, and four two-inch passive radiators for deep bass. The result is rich, balanced audio in a compact iPod speaker system.
So you can take your speakers with you and not worry about bringing extra batteries; the included rechargeable battery lets you listen to music without plugging in for up to eight hours (actual battery life will vary with use, settings and environmental conditions).
The Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i comes with a wireless remote control to give you command over functions like power, volume, play, pause, shuffle, skip and repeat from up to 30 feet (10 meters) away. For your convenience, you can take the dock with you in the included travel case that also has space for the power adapter and remote.
So you know that the Logitech S715i will work with your iPod or iPhone, the speaker is certified through the Made for iPod and Works with iPhone programs. In addition, the speaker’s innovative dock design works with any iPhone or iPod with a Universal Dock Connector – no trays necessary.
