Altec Lansing has debuted its Octiv Duo speaker system for the iPod and iPhone as well as new additions to its line of Muzx earphones. The wedge-shaped Octiv Duo features two top-mounted Docks for charging and playing two devices at once, a built-in USB port for charging a third device, an auxiliary input, a full-featured remote, and compatibility with the company’s Music Mix app for shuffling songs between the two docked devices and the Alarm Rock app for adding alarm clock functionality. The Altec Lansing Octiv Duo will be available in October and is priced at $100.
Altec’s new Muzx earphone lineup includes three models—Muzx Ultra, Muzx Extra, and Muzx Core. Muzx Ultra features an in-ear design with a single balanced armature in each bud, up to 26 dB of passive noise isolation, an in-line remote and mic, a 46-inch cable, a gold-plated 3.5mm jack, and an included eight-piece fitting kit and carrying case. The Muzx Core features 10mm Neodymium drivers and an in-line remote, while the Muzx Extra offers a more bass-heavy sound signature and a full-featured in-line remote and mic. Altec Lansing’s new Muzx Ultra and Muzx Extra earphones will be available in October and will sell for $100 and $50, respectively, while the Muzx Core earphones are available now and sell for $30.
