Digital Age Products Inc.
on Monday announced two new products aimed at Mac and PC users — the Walk-Free Wireless Headphones and Wrap-Around 2.1 Notebook Speakers. They’re each US$59.95.
The Walk-Free Wireless Headphones use 2.4GHz wireless frequency to transmit audio from your computer. They operate using two AA batteries and feature a volume control dial; they can switch between eight selectable channels for best reception, and connect to a USB transmitter. The transmitter features a blue LED signal indicator that shows power and signal strength, and doesn’t need any additional software drivers to support Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
The Wrap-Around 2.1 Notebook Speakers are designed for 14 and 15-inch laptop computers. They’ll work with either Macs or PCs, and slide on and clip to the back of the laptop’s screen, staying in place with padded grips whose tightness can be adjusted using a dial. The foldaway speakers fan out from the back and draw their power from the laptop’s USB port. A subwoofer — powered by its own AC adapter — is also included.
