Logitech’s New Line of Headphones Offer Superior Sound Quality for iPod and MP3 Players; New Line Features Wireless Headphones for Any MP3 Player
FREMONT, Calif, July 11, 2005 – People now have a choice of high-quality wired or wireless stereo headphones for any portable music player. Today, Logitech (SWX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) added to its growing portfolio of mobile music products by introducing three new headphones designed for the fast-growing portable music player market: the Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3, the Logitech Identity Headphones for MP3, and the Logitech Curve Headphones for MP3. Each product works with any iPod or MP3 player and has a unique feature set — so people can choose headphones to match their mobile music lifestyle.
“People use their portable music players in a variety of situations, and they need stereo headphones that include features to enhance their music in different environments,” said Ray Weikel, director of product marketing for Logitech’s Audio Business Unit. “Logitech has created a line of products that give people the power of choice when it comes to headphones for mobile music players. Like the Wireless Headphones for iPod introduced last month, the Wireless Headphones for MP3 remove the hassle of tangled cords and unleash people from their music players. The Curve and Identity products provide features for active users and those who want to make a fashion statement with their headphones. All of these headphones provide superior audio quality, comfort and fit.”
Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3
The Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3 give new meaning to “mobile music.” With 30 feet of wireless range, people can leave their music player on the kitchen counter while they roam around the home, or put it away in a backpack if they’re on the go, without missing a beat. And, the integrated controls on the side of the headphones allow people to adjust volume of the songs — without touching the music player. The headphones feature advanced Bluetooth 1.2 wireless technology, which includes adaptive frequency hopping, for interference-free, crystal-clear digital audio.
The Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3 work with any MP3 or CD player, and connect instantly by plugging the adapter into the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on the music player. They feature 40 mm full-range neodymium drivers that deliver rich audio and enhanced bass performance. The headphones use rechargeable batteries, which can play up to eight hours of music per charge. The Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3 have a comfortable, behind-the-head design and are made of lightweight, durable material. The Logitech Wireless Headphones for MP3 will be available in July in the U.S. and Europe for a suggested retail price in the U.S. of $129.99.
Logitech Identity Headphones for MP3
The Logitech Identity Headphones for MP3 work with any MP3 player or iPod and feature powerful audio in a small and lightweight form factor. These headphones take customization to a new level — they include four changeable color plates, allowing people to mix colors and styles according to their music and mood. The Logitech Identity Headphones for MP3 use twin neodymium drivers that give a full range of sound. They also include a behind-the-head fit, which is extremely comfortable during extended use. The Logitech Identity Headphones will be available in the U.S. and Europe in September, and will have a suggested retail price in the U.S. of $39.99.

The Logitech Curve Headphones for MP3 work with any MP3 player or iPod and are designed for the active mobile music enthusiast. Whether it’s at the gym, mountain biking or rock climbing, these headphones will stand up to the terrain.

And, the added comfort rings on each earpiece ensure a stable and secure fit during jarring activities.
