Logitech outs new clip-on USB speaker

Logitech promises that “Your built-in speakers just can’t compete with the stereo sound from this lightweight, portable speaker.” Whether or not that’s true will be up to you to decide, I suppose, but the single-cable operation of the “Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205” that’s “tiny enough to toss in your bag” may appeal to those of you looking for a bit more oomph.

I can’t tell you exactly how much oomph, as Logitech hasn’t listed the speaker’s wattage but the $40 price tag and the fact that it’s powered via USB might be indicators that your neighbors probably won’t be calling the cops to complain about the noise.

The speaker consists of “two high-performance drivers, a built-in amplifier, and an acoustically tuned enclosure.” There are volume control and power buttons on top of the speaker, too, for easy access.
