Asus launches two new sound devices
Dubai, December 28, 2011
Asus has announced two new USB sound products, the MS-100 compact USB stereo speaker set, and HS-W1 wireless USB headset.
Both are designed with sharp, striking looks, fantastic audio quality and a pure Plug ’n Play design, but with a minimal size that’s easily packed and to travelled with, the company said.
MS-100 USB Speaker: This is a compact stereo USB speaker set, powered entirely by a USB 2.0 (or 3.0) port, yet still capable of providing punchy sound without distortion. Its minimalist and strong Art Deco cone design mimics the classic speaker shape. Meanwhile inside, its large 54mm speaker drivers can generate up to 93dB of sound with less than 3 per cent distortion for its rich highs, thumping mids and full low tones, the company said.
No additional software driver is required on Windows Vista or Windows 7 machines, making it suitable for any desktop or laptop that needs an immediate sound boost!
HS-W1 Wireless USB Headset: Providing clear, crisp sound in total comfort, the HS-W1 headset is built with large 70mm leather earpads for long lasting, natural comfort. The 2.4GHz wireless technology used with the HS-W1 headset allows CD quality sound (44.1KHz/16-bit, uncompressed) to be transmitted from the tiny USB dongle to the headset, while also offering twice the remote distance of Bluetooth audio. Combined with the acoustic tuned 40mm drivers with a built-in equalizer, it promotes voice tones and fine details, with a hint of extra bass punch where it’s needed.
The noise filtering microphone highlights speech tones, while its simple rotate-to-mute design is ideal compared to blindly searching for a small button while you’re on-call. The large on-ear volume controls also make it easily adjustable with a simple tap, without the hassle of a small and fiddly in-line remote.
With up to 8 hours operating time on its in-built rechargeable battery, the light 170g folding design and bundled touring case means the HS-W1 is an ideal travel companion, the company said. – TradeArabia News Service
