It's been a long time since I've had the pleasure of looking at new Logitech speakers. I might have to see about the latest as I've been looking at some Bluetooth ones to test out.
Logitech has announced the Bluetooth Speakers Z600
set, which will cost you $149.99 and is made for Bluetooth streaming. They say it compliments the Mac and Ultrabooks out there. Up to three devices can be paired to the Z600 and they don't look like bland black boxes either.
Each speaker has three drivers built in and on the right top is a disc that responds to your touch motions. For those that don't use Bluetooth, there's also a 3.5mm jack so you can plug in audio items that either don't have that standard or you just want to plug it in. And to top it off, Logitech is also including a USB Bluetooth transceiver as well to connect computers without the ability to stream music via Bluetooth.
You'll be able to pick up a pair come August.
New Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 Deliver Premium Design and High-Performance Audio
Latest Logitech Stereo Speakers Offer Simple Wireless Connectivity for up to Three Devices at the Same Time
NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced the Logitech® Bluetooth® Speakers Z600, an elegantly designed pair of wireless stereo speakers that complement the sleek good looks of Mac® and Ultrabook™ computers. With these speakers you can effortlessly stream music and other audio from your computer, smartphone or tablet. Three devices can be active at the same time, and switching among them is as simple as pressing pause on one and play on another.
"The Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 were designed to resemble an object of art using shapes, materials, and colors that meld with the modern living space and complement the look of ultrathin laptops," said Charlotte Johs, Logitech global vice president of brand development and portfolio for PC accessories. "And with built-in Bluetooth connectivity, a first for Logitech multimedia speakers, these speakers are ideal for today's wireless, multi-device lifestyle."
Whether you're listening to music, watching a movie, playing a game or video chatting, the Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 deliver clear, well-defined audio. With 3 drivers in each speaker, this system is engineered to provide superior acoustics for any space.
The controls on the Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 are another integral component of the clean design. The entire top panel of the right speaker is a smooth, responsive touch disc. To dial the volume up or down, simply glide a finger around the edge. The other controls – power, Bluetooth pairing and 3.5 mm input – are hidden discreetly in the back. And because every detail is important, even the power cord has been carefully considered. Specially designed, lay-flat cables run between the speakers and the power adapter, so there's never an unsightly tangle of wires on your desk, table or countertop.
A USB Bluetooth transceiver is included with the Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 to ensure the best wireless experience with computers. Connecting through native Bluetooth may be possible, but some computers may not permit audio streaming or smooth device switching. The included USB Bluetooth transceiver also allows you to connect wirelessly to computers that don't support Bluetooth. In addition, you can connect the speakers to any device with an audio output using the 3.5mm auxiliary input.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in August 2013, for a suggested retail price of $149.99. For more information, please visit www.logitech.com or our blog.
