It’s bold, but Hercules is targeting their next set of speakers, the XPS Diamond 2.0 Kit, at the female demo, hoping that their “glam” design appeals to their womanly sensibilities.
We have to admit that the design is somewhat eye catching – a black lacquered finish with a see through base – but the lack of a subwoofer and a mere 3.5-inch speaker diameter, we’re gonna guess that the amplitude and sound quality are just s0-so. Fortunately, they cost just $34.99 and receive power and audio via USB, making the whole setup process a snap. Included is a velvet carrying case and a in-line wired remote control.
The Hercules XPS Diamond 2.0 speakers go on sale this May.
Hercules, the digital audio specialist, expands its successful XPS multimedia speaker line with their latest jewel of a creation; the XPS DIAMOND 2.0 USB Speakers. Designed with female users in mind, these speakers bring elegant style and glamour to the music listening experience. Featuring two mini- satellites for PC, Mac® or netbooks, the new Hercules XPS DIAMOND 2.0 USB speaker kit has been designed for women who want to add a touch of “glam” to their computer, and who are looking for a compact, chic and original accessory that lets them get the most out of their music and videos – simply, and wherever they might be.
When it comes to appealing to a female audience, nothing inspires quite like a diamond.
The satellites’ unique and exceptional
black lacquered finish and elegant, see-through base will captivate lovers of all things that sparkle and shine.
The fully USB connection (both the power supply and audio signals are carried via the kit’s single USB cable) and a wired miniature remote for volume control make these speakers perfect for those looking for an audio solution that’s easy to connect and to use anytime.
The satellites’ compact measurements – just 3.5” in diameter – and the included stylish black velvet carrying pouch (featuring separate compartments) add yet another dimension to this speaker set’s charm, allowing users to easily take their XPS DIAMOND kit with them anywhere, together with their laptop or netbook.
And last but not least: despite its small size, users can rest assured that the XPS DIAMOND 2.0 USB system delivers clarity and quality of sound for music, videos and other applications.
The perfect give to give or receive, they’re just like a set of real diamonds: once you have them, you’ll never want to let them go.
The Hercules XPS DIAMOND 2.0 USB speaker kit will be available in May 2011, at a suggested retail price of $39.99 SRP.
