Logitech Unveils Versatile Protective Case and Premium Audio Products for PSP

HANOVER - March 9, 2005 - Today at CeBIT, Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its first must-have products for the eagerly anticipated PSPTM (PlayStation® Portable) handheld entertainment system. The new family of Logitech® PlayGear accessories complement the sleek PSP with innovative functionality, while reflecting Logitech's renowned design expertise.

Created for the discerning PSP enthusiast, these first products from Logitech include a stylish case that serves as versatile yet virtually indestructible body armour for the PSP, as well as a selection of premium audio options for enjoying all of the PSP platform's multimedia capabilities.

"Logitech has designed beautiful, custom-tailored products that complement the PSP and its unique versatility," said Jef Holove, director of product marketing for Logitech's Audio and Interactive Entertainment Business Unit. "The PSP is an innovative platform for mobile gaming as well as music, movies and more. With this new line, Logitech is leveraging our expertise in design, leadership in audio, and history in interactive entertainment to help maximise the PSP's enormous potential."

Logitech PlayGear Pocket case

The stylish Logitech® PlayGear PocketTM case protects the PSP against wear and tear, scratches and bumps, with its virtually indestructible polycarbonate shell, while allowing complete accessibility to all the PSP functions. The versatile case's lid flips up and out of the way, allowing gamers to use the PSP without removing it from the case - and still protect their investment. The lid's tension hinge allows it to rotate and stay open at any angle; it can serve as a sun visor for outdoor game play or as a tabletop stand for hands-free viewing of videos or listening to music. The case also provides easy access to the 3.5 mm audio port so that gamers can plug in their earphones while the PSP is fully enclosed in the case. The Logitech PlayGear Pocket case will be available online and on retail shelves in the U.S. and Europe from May.

Logitech PlayGear Stealth earphones

The Logitech® PlayGear StealthTM earphones provide high-quality audio performance and a comfortable fit for hours of game play, music or movies. The product includes three soft rubber fittings - small, medium and large - to allow a custom fit, keep the earphones in place inside any ear, and provide a comfortable seal that improves the bass sound quality. The earphones also feature neodymium stereo drivers capable of producing large sound despite their compact form. The Logitech PlayGear Stealth earphones will be available on retail shelves and online in the U.S. and Europe from May.

Logitech PlayGear Amp portable speakers

The sleek Logitech® PlayGear AmpTM portable speakers will provide rich and loud stereo sound from the PSP device for music, movies and games. The speaker set contains a PSP bracket that holds the device for easy, hands-free viewing. With a collapsible design and an included carrying case, the speakers are easy to pack up and take on the road. The Logitech PlayGear Amp portable speakers will be available in the U.S. and Europe from May.

Logitech PlayGear Share audio splitter

The Logitech® PlayGear ShareTM audio splitter creates a pair of open 3.5 mm ports, allowing friends to use two sets of headphones or speakers simultaneously on one PSP device - twice the fun when listening to movies and music. The Logitech PlayGear Share audio splitter will be available on retail shelves and online in the U.S. and Europe from May.
