If hassle-free audio playback is as important to your desk space as good looks are, Logitech’s Z600 speaker set may be worth a look.
A pair of cone-shaped Bluetooth speakers, the Z600 wirelessly pair with Bluetooth-enabled computers (or any Bluetooth device for that matter), and feature smart switching tech that automatically knows to jump from one paired device to another when a device goes silent and another starts playing music.
Volume is controlled by a touch-sensitive pad on the top of each speaker, with lay-flat power cabling, a 3.5mm input port, power and Bluetooth pairing controls hidden around the back.
For computers that don’t have built-in Bluetooth connectivity (or use a Bluetooth build that doesn’t support instant device switching) a USB wireless Bluetooth transceiver is included for pain-free playback.
“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.”
Due out in stores in August, expect to pay around £130.
