Westinghouse is well known for its line of LED and LCD TVs. But the company is branching out at CES 2013 with the introduction of new models in its Unplug Series of speakers targeted for mobile or in-home use. The high-end Unplug 300 is the flagship of the series. With four full-range drivers and a passive radiator, the unit is capable of an impressive 88 dB output level. Along with a MicroSD card reader, the battery can last up to 20 hours on a single charge. It will retail for $229.99. Checking in at $179.99, the Unplug 200 has two full-range 50mm drivers and a passive radiator for immersive sound. It offers up to a 16 hour battery life and has speakerphone capability. Optimized for mobile use, the Unplug AIO allows music lovers to ramp up the bass. With AC and DC chargers, the speaker can be taken pretty much anywhere and has up to a 20 hour battery life. An internal microphone with noise suppression and echo cancellation promises high-quality speakerphone capability. Up to three AIO units can be daisy chained together for bigger sound. It will retail for $129.99. With a compact design, the pictured Unplug 100 clocks in with a $99.99 retail price. It has speakerphone capabilities for a conference call or hands-free chatting. The Unplug 100 is available now, while the other three speakers will hit the market in the first quarter of this year.
