Disappointed with the audio in your Ultrabook or ultrathin laptop? It's a common complaint, and the only real solution is to invest in a pair of external speakers. If that's the road you're going down, Logitech hopes you'll gear up with its new Z600 set of Bluetooth speakers, an "elegantly designed" pair of cans intended to "complement the sleek good looks of Mac and Ultrabook computers."
One of the neat features of the Z600 is that you can sync up to three devices at once. You could, for example, stream audio from your Ultrabook, smartphone, and tablet simultaneously, and switch between feeds by 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."
Each speaker is equipped with three drivers. There's also a 3.5mm port hidden in the back if you'd rather go wired instead of use Bluetooth. Even the cables were designed with aesthetics in mind, as they lay flat between the speakers and power adapter.
The power button also sits in the back, and if you want to adjust the volume, you just glide your finger around the edge of the top panel of the right speaker.
Logitech says the Z600 will be available in August for $150 MSRP.
