Logitech has announced the Laptop Speaker Z205 – a lightweight speaker with a clip-on design to attach it to a laptop.
“While people love the portability of their laptop computer, they are often missing out on the immersive listening experience that external speakers provide,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “When designing the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205, we wanted to help people get better audio while enjoying their favorite shows or music without sacrificing portability. The Laptop Speaker Z205 is tiny enough to toss in your bag, but delivers big sound.”
The Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 attaches to the top of most laptop screens. It is approximately 1.35 inches thick and 2.5 inches tall and comes with a carry case that protects the speaker while inside a briefcase or backpack.
The speaker features full stereo sound thanks to two high-performance drivers, a built-in amplifier and an acoustically tuned enclosure. Volume can be adjusted using the buttons located on the top of the speaker. The included USB cable is all thats is required for power and audio – no need for an external power supply – so it's basically plug and play.
The Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe for a suggested retail price of $39.99 (U.S.) beginning in March.
