ASUS announced the launch of its first ever multimedia speaker series. The new ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers are designed to provide high fidelity audio and bass via a maze-like reflex port, which is then channeled through speakers designed to place the user in the audio sweet-spot.
For added convenience and mobility, both the ASUS uBoom and uBoom Q sound-bar speakers feature USB 2.0 connectivity for audio output. The uBoom Q also draws its power via the USB 2.0 port.
The Asus uBoom offers a neat design that lets you "dock" your notebook. The 2.1 notebook speaker is supposed to deliver 24W and measures 595mm x 135mm x 90mm. No pricing information available.
The Asus uBoom Q does not really look sleek and only offers 2.4W power.
