We've reviewed a lot of wireless speakers and the general consensus is that the better sounding ones are usually very expensive. Wired speakers on the other hand are not too expensive, and there are some really good ones which can be purchased at a bargain price. In an attempt to combine the best of both worlds, Logitech on Thursday unveiled a Bluetooth Audio Adapter for wired speakers that can wirelessly receive sound from smartphones, tablets or any device which has a built-in Bluetooth radio. It has been priced at Rs. 1,995.
Essentially, it can connect to any speaker using 3.5mm audio jack or RCA. The Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter works over the older Bluetooth 3.0 standard and features a multipoint Bluetooth connectivity that enables one touch pairing for up to two devices at the same time. It has a single Bluetooth button in the center to pair with devices. Logitech claims that if the speakers are out of range, the adaptor automatically re-pairs with other nearby devices.
Logitech also claims that Bluetooth Audio Adapter has an operating range of 50 feet, provided there are no physical obstructions. The device has dimensions of 50x50x23mm.
Ashok Jangra, Cluster Category Manager, India & South West Asia, Logitech, said of the device's launch in India, "As technology keeps getting more ubiquitous, compact and portable, there's a need for solutions that enable anytime, anywhere connectivity. Understanding this shift, Logitech has created the new Bluetooth Adapter that gives you the flexibility to turn your favourite speakers into a wireless sound system with uncompromised quality."
