Logitech introduces two new iPod docks: S325i and S125i

The last time we were discussing , it was in regards to the unveiling of nine new webcams.  Now the company has shifted our focus to their new iPod speaker docks, as they have two new ones that we want to let you in on.  The S325i (pictured above) is -compatible, and powered by a rechargeable battery good for 20 hours.  The S125i is powered by 4 AA batteries, but doesn’t seem to support the iPhone.  Both of these will be available later this month, with the S325i retailing for $129, and the S125i for $69.

Bleeding Edge TV 251: Jensen Ported iPod Speakers and Docking Digital HD Radio

Everyone loves speakers.  At least that’s what I’m thinking, after taking a look at the market.  Jensen’s newest offerings, the JiSS 550 and JiSS 330, retailing for $129 and $99 respectively.  Both docks include side flow bass ports for crisper sound and remote controls, and both are available now.

Another, newer offering from Jensen is an HD radio enabled iPod speaker.  Along with all of the rest of the cool tricks that HD radio receivers have (FM multicasting, digital sound and station information services, among others), Jensen’s newest HD offering features an tagging function - when you hear a song on the radio that you know you’re going to want to hear again, repeatedly and whenever you want, with the touch of a button you can send the song information to your iPod.  On your next sync, you’ll get a prompt from iTunes reminding you that you wanted to buy the song.

Available in April, MSRP on the HD radio iPod speaker will be coming in at an estimated $179, but rumor has it that if you head over to Target when the speaker is released, you could save yourself enough to buy a couple of albums worth of songs you tagged on the unit.


Bleeding Edge TV 243: Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin iPod/iPhone dock

Bowers and Wilkins has long been known for their stunning audiophile loudspeaker and home theater equipment so it’s no surprise that their foray into the / speaker dock territory is an impressive one. The new Zeppelin dock features a subwoofer and two midrange/tweeters all in a single compact unit. The odd football shape does indeed bring to mind it’s airship namesake with a look that is sure to draw a second look for passers by. The downside - it’s $600; or $200 more than you spent on the iPhone that goes in it.

In the video we show off the product, and even demonstrate how it handles an iPhone taking a call while in use. Amazingly, there is no GSM interference to be found. Definitely a plus.
