Customers decide new Kogan audio products

Online retailer Kogan continues to challenge the larger manufacturers with the latest products and the most competitive prices.

Now the Australian company, which imports direct to the customer to save hundreds of dollars, has taken customer feedback to come up with new products.

These include a new home theatre soundbar which creates virtual surround sound and a retro digital and internet radio.   

“We’re listening to our customers each and every day. What we’re hearing is they want even more Kogan products,” company founder and CEO Ruslan Kogan said.

“We take each and every suggestion from our customers seriously. Last month a Kogan Facebook fan suggested we create a soundbar style device, and here it is.”

Apart from the home theatre soundbar and digital radio, Kogan is also introducing a portable electric panel heater and a reverse cycle portable air conditioner and heater.

Prices for these products are for sale using Kogan’s Live Price system which allows customers to save money the earlier they order a particular product.

The Kogan Soundbar ($199 but as low as $130 using Live Price) comes with a wireless subwoofer and is designed for those who want to create a home theatre experience in a budget.

The 75W Soundbar features SRS TruSurround HD sound which can recreate a five speaker surround set up virtually so users will believe they are hearing sound coming from areas where there are no speakers.

The accompanying subwoofer links wirelessly to the Soundbar to complete the experience and can be placed anywhere in the viewing room.

Kogan’s Wi-Fi DAB+ Digital Internet Radio ($239 or starting at $180 using Live Price) has a retro wood finish and combines digital, internet and FM radio in the one unit.

Digital radio provides clearer sound quality while the device’s wi-fi connectivity allows users to link to more than 15,000 internet stations.

The wi-fi connection can also be used to stream music from within a home network on other computers and network connected hard drives and pipe them through the Kogan device.

Users can also connect their iPhone, iPod or other MP3 player via the aux in jack.

Last week Kogan also expanded its range to include the Agora Internet TV Portal ($199 or as low as $149 on Live Price) which can make your TV a smart TV along with a 7-inch Agora Tablet PC powered by Android ($189 or $139 on Live Price) and an Agora 12-inch laptop ($349 standard/$389 Pro or $299/$319 on Live Price).
