Logitech has launched the Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere Compact Speakers for iPod, optimising portability and delivering big sound in a small size.
Building on the success of the Logitech mm50 portable speakers, the company’s best-selling iPod speaker system, the Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers offer a rechargeable battery, now with a battery-life indicator; an improved travelling case; a redesigned, advanced remote control with one-touch access to Shuffle and Repeat.
“For almost two years, Logitech has been a leader worldwide in portable iPod speakers and we’re confident that the new Pure-Fi Anywhere will extend our success by including features that make the portable experience and integration with iPod better than before,” says Robert van de Vegte, regional director of Logitech in South Africa.
“Logitech understands that iPod users love their iPods and want to take them wherever they go. Now, when they do, they can be confident they have the portability, battery life and the control they want.”
Recent Logitech research revealed that people consider enhanced battery-life management to be the most essential feature in portable speakers. When on the go, music lovers do not want to worry about their speakers running out of power.
The Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers boast a 10-hour rechargeable battery with a battery-life indicator – a four-stage battery level meter lets people know when they need to recharge the speakers.
By including a battery-life indicator, people can decide whether to skip the charging step if the speakers have plenty of juice to get through the day, or alert people that the speakers should be charged before they leave home. And when the iPod is connected to the Universal Dock connector, the Pure-Fi Anywhere can simultaneously play music and recharge the iPod battery.
The Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers make portability easy: an improved protective travel case holds the speakers, a power adapter and a redesigned remote. The case even includes a place to hold an iPod® Nano. The redesigned power adapter detaches and fits snugly into the iPod dock, and its rubberised edges helps ensure that the Pure-Fi Anywhere speaker system will not be scratched. Plus, the integrated cable management system on the power adaptor helps to reduce cord chaos.
In addition to portability, iPod owners want to be able to easily access their favourite tunes. To assist them, the Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers come with a wireless remote control that offers direct navigation of iPod menus from a distance of 20 feet.
The remote also features one-touch access to Shuffle and Repeat, making it simple to control the iPod instead of having to navigate menu layers. Shuffle and Repeat buttons are also located on the top of the speaker system. The remote also provides people with access to basic features such as Volume, Forward, Back, Play and Pause from both the remote control and the speakers.
More than just a high-performance portable speaker system, the Pure-Fi Anywhere presents a stylish profile that accents any lifestyle. Part of Apple´s “Made for iPod” program, the Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers come in glossy white with silver grilles or piano-black with black grilles – a perfect match for the iPod.
Despite its compact size – at only 726 grams and 9 cm by 33.5 cm by 4 cm, it’s lighter and more compact than most other portable speakers – the Pure-Fi Anywhere portable speakers deliver dynamic, full-range sound quality with their dual 2-inch Max-X, high-excursion drivers with neodymium magnets.
Additionally, 3-inch pressure drivers maximise bass response and minimise distortion. With the combination of active and pressure drivers, the Pure-Fi Anywhere speakers provide crystal clear highs and powerful, thumping bass.
To meet the diversity of iPod owners’ needs, Logitech also offers a family of speakers for iPod and MP3 players that includes the Logitech Pure-Fi Dream Bedroom Music System, the high-end Logitech AudioStation speakers, the lightweight Logitech AudioStation Express speakers, the stylish Logitech mm32 Portable Speakers for iPod and the flat-panel Logitech mm28 speakers.
