Logitech has launched a couple of wireless accessories to
hook up to your smartphone and tablet which aim to enhance the music
capabilities of said device.
The first is the Logitech Wireless Headset which can connect
to a variety of Apple devices (iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone) or any other
Bluetooth-enabled devices. As you can imagine it will let you roam freely
without the fear of tangling yourself in those dastardly cables.
The rather ugly-looking headset, which features a microphone
boom, claims to have “laser-tuned” rivers which produce “rich stereo sound
while minimizing distortion.” The headset also includes a rechargeable battery
which promises 6 hours of listening time on a single charge.
The second wireless accessory to be announced by Logitech is
the Wireless Boombox. Built for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, the Boombox will
transform your device into a touch screen player and remote control to
wirelessly stream stereo audio.
The speaker can be placed “wherever you want” according to Logitech
– that is, as long as it’s within 10 metres of you riDevice. Again the Boombox
promises a six-hour battery life (depending on conditions and usage) from a
The sound from the Boombox is powered by eight
custom-designed drivers which help separate sound frequencies “so you hear
crisp, clear high notes, a rich, full mid range and deep powerful bass.”
The Wireless Headset is expected to be available in
mid-October with a suggest price of £54.99 while the Boombox will be available
at the end of October for £129.
