Verbatim Portable USB Audio Bar takes laptop sound to new levels
INDUSTRY| June 13, 2012, 9:03 a.m.
A powerful, compact Portable USB Audio Bar speaker from Verbatim is now available from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).
This handy clip-on USB powered speaker is lightweight and portable, offering plug ’n play ease of use and great sound quality that makes it perfect for use in the office or on the go.
“As any laptop user knows, the built-in speakers do not deliver optimal sound quality. In today’s media-rich world, this is not the ideal scenario. The Verbatim USB Audio Bar hooks onto your laptop screen or stands neatly on your desktop, using a USB port for power and a clever design that offers great digital sound clarity,” says Drika Wilkins, Verbatim Product Specialist at DCC.
“Volume levels range from soft enough for personal use to loud enough for use in a boardroom during a presentation. It is also ideal for Skype conversations, ensuring you hear every word. And when you need to pack up and move around, you simply unhook the device and pop it into your notebook bag – it takes up less space than most laptop chargers and weighs just over 100 grams,” she adds.
The Verbatim USB Audio Bar is compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 on Windows and Mac operating systems. The speaker contains two pre-amplified magnetically shielded metal drivers for ultimate sound quality without the need for additional sound cards. It features a retractable clip to secure the speaker to any notebook while in use, designed to hold fast without damaging the screen.
Measuring 20cm in length, 3.4cm high and 3.4cm wide, with a weight of just 108 grams, the Verbatim USB Audio Bar is highly portable. At two watts (RMS) total output power, it is also energy efficient and will not strain laptop batteries when they are not plugged in to charge. The Audio Bar comes with a 58cm cable so that the speaker can be positioned for optimal sound quality.
