A Home for Your iPod: Logitech Unveils Two New iPod Speaker Docks
Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i Offers Up to 20-Hour Battery Life, Logitech Portable Speaker S125i Cranks Up the Bass
FREMONT, Calif. — Aug. 12, 2009 — If you want a dock for your iPod® that also makes it fun and easy to share your music with your friends and family, then Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) has an iPod speaker dock for you. Today, Logitech unveiled the Logitech® Rechargeable Speaker S315i and the Logitech® Portable Speaker S125i. Offering exceptionally long battery life, the Rechargeable Speaker S315i delivers up to 20 hours of listening time, while the Portable Speaker S125i let you crank up the bass in your bedroom, kitchen, living room – even in your backyard.
“Millions of people have fallen in love with the iPod, but want a speaker dock so they can share their music with friends,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “Logitech’s newest iPod speaker docks help improve your iPod listening experience at home, at work or anywhere you enjoy your music. With Logitech’s new speakers, you’ll hear every note – loud and clear.”
Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i
Because you don’t always have time to recharge your iPod at home, and it’s inconvenient to carry your charger when you’re out and about, the Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i gives you a full day’s (or night’s) worth of music on a single charge – up to 20 hours of power (in power-saving mode). Plus, unlike other iPod speaker docks, the Rechargeable Speaker S315i can play your music while it’s plugged in and charging your iPod.
But Logitech does not stop with exceptional battery life. The Rechargeable Speaker S315i uses custom, full-range drivers to accurately reproduce the highs and lows of your favorite songs. And, with its slim design – it’s less than two-inches thick – and durable metal grills, the S315i is ready for the rigors of your suitcase, backpack or car.
When you need to charge your iPod or iPhone®, just dock it in the Rechargeable Speaker S315i. The Rechargeable Speaker S315i works with the iPhone and any iPod model with the Apple Universal Dock Connector.
Logitech Portable Speaker S125i
Ideal for first-time iPod owners ready to move and groove, the Logitech Portable Speaker S125i is an easy-to-transport speaker dock with extra bass when you need it. You can use it to play and charge any iPod model with the Apple Universal Dock Connector or connect other music players using the 3.5mm auxiliary input. And you’ll feel the beat even more with one push of the Bass Boost button.
At less than one pound, the portable, power-smart and compact Portable Speaker S125i runs on AC or battery power – up to 10 hours of battery-powered music (4 AA not included) – so it can go just about anywhere inside or outside the home.
Both the Rechargeable Speaker S315i and the Portable Speaker 125i offer a standard 3.5 mm jack so you can plug in any portable music player, and even your PC or CD player.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i and Logitech Portable Speaker S125i are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in August for a suggested retail price of $129.99 (U.S.) and $69.99 (U.S.), respectively.
