Logitech unveil omnidirectional Z-5 speakers

for a wider direction of sound

| Posted: Sep 17, 2008 2:44 am

If anyone is going to bring anything new and different to the market when it comes to PC audio and peripherals, it's more often than not Logitech.

 

They've done just that yet again with the release of their new Z-5 'omnidirectional' stereo speakers. Unlike traditional front firing speakers which focus the sound in one main direction, the Z-5s coverage is much wider and delivers a clear output no matter where you're positioned in the room.

 

As it uses USB for both sound and power, this also makes the Z-5 an ideal partner for notebooks. As an added plus, a wireless remote is included which allows you to not only adjust volume, mute etc. but also launch an application of choice, mp3 playlist or some such.

 

These speakers are said to become available in stores by the end of the month at a U.S. pricetag of $99.99. To learn more about the Z-5 Omnidirectional Stereo Speakers, you can find the press release here and the product page here folks.

 


Logitech unveil omnidirectional Z-5 speakers

FREMONT, Calif. - Sept. 16, 2008 - Attaching speakers to a PC has always improved on the sound quality of built-in PC speakers. But now, Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduces the next evolution in PC-speaker acoustics, unveiling the Logitech® Z-5 omnidirectional stereo speakers - for PC and Mac® computers - which deliver great sound throughout your room.

 

Unlike standard PC speakers that focus sound in one direction, the Logitech Z-5 speakers use omnidirectional acoustics that create a substantially wider sweet spot - an especially helpful feature if you often move your laptop around your home or office. An innovative speaker technology previously found only in expensive home-theater systems, omnidirectional acoustics on the Logitech Z-5 speakers use forward- and backward-firing drivers to transmit sound evenly in all directions. Whether you're listening to your favorite song or watching a video on YouTube™, you'll enjoy rich, articulate sound and minimal distortion - from every corner of your room.
