Maxell iPod clock radios
Maxell Corporation has expanded its iPod accessories line with newly designed clock radio docks that offer consumers an all-in-one solution, including AM/FM functionality, dual alarms, sleep modes, snooze capabilities, battery back-up and remote controls. The entire iPod Clock Radio product line not only plays flash media devices, but also features a USB port and 3.5 mm audio input jack, enabling users to listen to their MP3s players and other portable music devices. Maxell's Desktop is an AM/FM clock radio that serves as a speaker system, iPod charging station and picture frame that allows users to replace the standard iPod screen with their personal photographs. The new Desktop also offers high-quality sound features.
Maxell's new, state-of-the-art Bedside Alarm Clock Radio delivers an extra large, backlit LCD screen with dimmer, shows date and time and also gives consumers four intense speakers and a dynamic wave chamber for enhanced bass.
Maxell is also introducing a new iPod Desktop/Wall Mount Alarm Clock Radio that can be set on a desk, tabletop or mounted on a wall. As with the entire product line, the iPod Desktop/Wall Mount Alarm Clock radio features AM/FM capability, a flash memory card reader, charging functionality and a sleek time and temperature weather display.
"Our new clock, alarm and charging stations will deliver consumers unmatched quality and they extend the usefulness of the iPod, which has become practically ubiquitous in American life. iPods are not just for portable use any more and people want to listen to them in all aspects of their life," said Gordon Tetreault, director of sales and marketing for Maxell's accessory products.
Maxell's One Dock, Bedside Alarm Clock Radio and Desktop/Wall Mount Alarm Clock Radio retail for $100, $150 and $200, respectively.
