Parrot launched the Parrot DS3120, an innovative home stereo that combines Parrot’s award-winning wireless music and handsfree calling technology in one unit. Let consumers enjoy their music without being tethered to headphones, allowing them to listen to music out loud virtually anywhere, anytime.
The Parrot DS3120 allows users to play music from mobile phones, MP3 players such as an iPod, PCs and laptops wirelessly via Bluetooth – with a 10m range - or through a USB connection. It also has an SD card slot and a built-in FM radio.
“Music is part of our every day life. The Parrot DS3120 is a modern radio with unique highquality sound, amazing new features like the built-in screen display, all packed in an exceptional wireless design” says Henri Seydoux, founder and CEO of Parrot. “The Parrot DS3120 has been designed to offer unmatched audio performance, and provides a smooth connection to a wide range of audio sources”.
