Logitech has just introduced a pair of speakers for those who want better sound from their laptops. The products are the Z515 and the Z305. The 515 is actually wireless offering a 50 foot range, and the 305 can attach right to your laptop and offer 360 degree field of sound. The Z515 has an MSRP of $99.99, while the Z305 will be selling for $59.99, both will be available sometime in September.
Logitech Wireless Speaker Z515 — Great Sound, No Strings Attached
To free you from the hassle of cords and let you place your speakers up to 50 feet (15 m) away, the Logitech Wireless Speaker Z515 uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology to deliver wireless audio. And setup couldn’t be easier. Just plug the included wireless adapter into a USB port on your laptop, and you’re connected in a matter of seconds. Or if you want to connect to an iPad or iPhone, you won’t even need the USB dongle – just put your device into Discovery mode and the Logitech Z515 speaker will find it and connect wirelessly.
But these speakers aren’t just wireless — they also provide rich sound. The speaker’s dual two-inch drivers give full stereo sound and plenty of bass. Plus, so you can take your music with you wherever you go, the Z515 includes a rechargeable battery that can power your speaker for up to 10 hours.
Logitech Laptop Speaker Z305 — All-Around Sound from Your Laptop, To Go
If you are looking for a lightweight, compact speaker that is truly as portable as your laptop, look no farther than the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z305. Thanks to 360-degree audio, the Z305 emits sound evenly in all directions so you get a great listening experience throughout the room. The plug-and-play USB connection delivers power and pure, digital audio instantly — without the need for software or an external power supply.
So you can easily use the speaker anywhere you use your computer — your office, your bed, the airport — the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z305 securely mounts behind the screen so it’s out of the way. And the Laptop Speaker Z305 is also extremely lightweight — approximately one-half pound — which means you’ll always be able to take it with you. As an added convenience, the USB cable tucks neatly into the back of your speaker, giving you a look that’s sleek and clutter-free.
When you’re ready to hit the road, both new Logitech laptop speakers fit easily into the included travel case or your laptop bag.
