As the global manufacturer of iPod and iPhone (News
) accessories, and as a division of SDI Technologies, iHome today announced the iH69 and iH70, innovative new speaker systems for Macs and PCs.
With these new speaker systems, iPod users can dock, charge, play and sync their iPods
directly to their computer via their speakers. By providing better quality sound and functionality, the iH69 and iH70 eliminate the need for extra wires, cables and space.
"At iHome we continually strive to provide innovative products for iPod owners that enhance their listening enjoyment and maximize the functionality of their iPod," said Evan Stein, vice president of marketing, iHome.
"The new iH69 and iH70 are a perfect marriage of sound and design, and with their charging and sync capabilities, they are the ideal, all-in-one speaker solutions for the Mac or PC that will consolidate space and bring iHome's advanced sound technology from audio speakers to computer speakers,” Stein added.
The iH69 and iH70 are compatible with all docking iPod models, and conveniently charge, play and sync iPods while they are docked securely into the base of the computer speaker.
Designed with high-fidelity Reson8 speaker chambers, the speakers deliver premium power output, computer port, sync switch, volume controls and a headphone jack for private listening. The iH70 builds upon this base with higher wattage producing speakers, a full functioning remote control and the inclusion of SRS WOW sound enhancement technology that enhances the audio field for a richer sound experience.
The iH69 and iH70 are currently available for pre-order on iHomeaudio.com and will be available soon at major retail outlets nationwide for the suggested retail price of $99.99 and $129.99.
Established in 2005 as a division of SDI Technologies to develop and market iPod electronics, iHome first made a name for itself with its iPod Clock Radio. This product quickly became a success and was named the top-selling iPod accessory for the year, establishing iHome as a top brand in the iPod electronics market.
Since then, iHome has been at the forefront of design with a growing lineup of award-winning iPod-compatible audio products that includes portable and home speaker systems, as well as new lines of mobile phone and computer speakers.
Acknowledged for its innovative features, unique designs, and advanced technology, iHome has already gained several prestigious industry awards and recently expanded its offerings via licensing agreements with Microsoft, SanDisk (News
) and Bluetooth
to develop audio electronics for their respective media devices and technologies.
