Altec Lansing Introduces “Works with iPhone” Speaker System


Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics, Inc., is once again amplifying music and multimedia experiences for Apple customers with the debut of the T612™ digital audio system for the iPhone™ and new iPod® family of products. The T612 provides brilliant sound for music and multimedia, while also featuring iPhone incoming call support.

The Altec Lansing T612 furthers the company’s legacy of developing digital audio systems that complement the iPod with rich sound, beautiful design and the ability to share music with others. In 2003 Altec Lansing created the inaugural inMotion™ iPod audio dock, and today boasts a full suite of products that address the listening needs and habits of consumers across various lifestyles.

“Altec Lansing has a long history of engineering innovative, high-performance audio products: such as the first speakers used in a feature-length talkie movie in 1927 and the first iPod audio dock in 2003,” said Vicki Marion, president, Altec Lansing. “We believe Apple enthusiasts will welcome the impressive sound, music controls and call support features that make the T612 a perfect companion for both the iPod and the iPhone.”

iPhone In-Call Support
The T612 complements key features of the iPhone, including support for incoming calls. If a call comes in while music is playing, the iPhone gives priority to the call by pausing the music. Once the call is completed, the iPhone is re-docked in the T612 and the music resumes playing at the same song and place.

High Quality Sound
The T612 also supports internal GSM shielding to keep its speakers from picking up potential intermittent noises emitted by the iPhone or other mobile devices.
Designed after Altec Lansing’s successful M602 digital audio player, the T612 features powerful neodymium speakers and XdB™ bass-enhancement technology for exceptionally rich audio reproduction and solid bass response for a desktop system of its size.

Connections and Controls
The T612 sports Apple’s Universal Dock to play and charge all iPhone and new-generation iPod models. In addition, the rear of the T612 provides a standard auxiliary-in jack for connection to older iPod models as well as other audio devices.

The T612 comes equipped with a wireless remote for iPod song navigation functionality, featuring Power, Volume Down, Volume Up, Track Back, Track Forward, Play/Pause, and separate Bass, and Treble controls.

Available in February 2008, the Altec Lansing T612 system will be sold at Apple retailers and for $199.95 (U.S. MSRP).
