Logitech announced the Z600 wireless stereo speakers that use Bluetooth to stream audio from your computer, smartphone or tablet. Three devices can be active at the same time, and switching among them is as simple as pressing pause on one and play on another.
The entire top panel of the right speaker is a smooth, responsive touch disc. To dial the volume up or down, simply glide a finger around the edge. The other controls — power, Bluetooth pairing and 3.5 mm input — are hidden discreetly in the back, along with 3 speaker drivers. Specially designed, lay-flat cables run between the speakers and the power adapter, so there’s never an unsightly tangle of wires on your desk, table or countertop.
A USB Bluetooth transceiver is included with the Z600 to allow you to connect wirelessly to computers that don’t support Bluetooth. In fact, Logitech says this method is preferred over Bluetooth to get the best wireless audio clarity for use with a PC or Mac. In addition, you can connect the multimedia speakers to any device with an audio output using the 3.5mm auxiliary input.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in August 2013, for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
