8/27/2002 - e.Digital announced the addition of two new players to its line of cutting-edge digital audio players. The OdysseyTM 150 and OdysseyTM 800 are both PC and Mac compatible and possess many of the same features as other Odyssey players but have different storage capacities and price points. Both players will be available to consumers this fall.
Tom Boksa, e.Digital’s Vice President of Consumer Electronics, said, "We developed these products as a result of feedback from existing and potential retail customers who desire a wider range of selection and price points for their customers. The Odyssey 150 and Odyssey 800 have been leveraged from our existing product designs to meet these needs."
The Odyssey 800 offers the same range of features as the Odyssey 1000 at a lower cost for consumers who don’t require as much storage. It is identical in functionality to the Odyssey 1000 but has a 15 Gigabyte instead of a 20 Gigabyte hard drive and is priced at an attractive $50 less than the Odyssey 1000. It boasts the same stellar features as the Odyssey 1000, including superb sound quality, outstanding battery life, MP3 and Windows MediaTM WMA playback, digital voice recording, and data storage.
The Odyssey 150 is a highly compact digital music player that has all the same features as the Odyssey 100 but with 128 MB of memory instead of 64 MB. It also has a SmartMedia card expansion slot allowing users to add up to 128 MB more storage. It has high-quality sound and boasts the same amazing 30 hours of battery life from one AA battery as the Odyssey 100.
According to Jim Collier, President and COO of e.Digital, "Our ability to respond quickly to the demands of the market is the direct result of our close relationship with our strategic partner Digitalway. These new models will enhance our line of Odyssey digital audio players. The e.Digital line provides a complete set of features at attractive price points for consumers."
