One of my favorite electronics companies, and one that has for decades blazed the trail in hi-fidelity audiophile technology, is also one of the first companies to come to market with Apple's Lightning connector enabled docking speakers. Compatible with Apples’ latest Lightning enabled devices, this new line of docking speakers delivers a superior sound reproduction and includes a powerful music system capable of filling a large room with crystal clear audio, as well as two different mid-size docking speakers and a smaller, bedroom docking speaker that has a convenient clock display.

As always, Philips demonstrates their knowledge and flair for quality audio and electronic craftsmanship with this new line of Lightning connector enabled gear, and just in time for the holidays. Any one of these top-quality speakers would make a most excellent gift for that special audiophile on you shopping list.

Philips launches docking speakers with Lightning connector for Apple iPhone 5

ATLANTA – Philips today launches a range of docking speakers with Apple’s new Lightning connector, making them compatible with Lightning enabled devices. This new range of docking speakers offers a superior sound performance in comparison to the analog processing technology common in current docking speakers.

The range includes a music system, two docking speakers and a bedroom docking speaker that includes a clock display. These new docking speakers will be available in December.

  • Philips Lifestyle Music System (DCM2067) – an elegant and slim design that looks good in any modern interior. As well as charging and playing music from Lightning enabled devices through its retractable Lightning dock; the system also includes a CD player and FM radio. Even with its slender footprint, the system delivers 20W RMS power to provide a great sound performance.

  • Philips Portable Docking Speaker (DS7580) – slim and compact enough to fit in your bag, it features Philips’ wOOx technology that provides a rich and deep bass. Precise tuning between the speaker drivers ensures a smooth transition between low- to mid- and high-frequencies. With a built-in battery that lasts for approximately eight hours you can enjoy your music anywhere.

  • Philips Room to Room Docking Speaker (DS3205) – incorporates high- quality neodymium speakers, which are great for better bass response and a pure balanced sound quality.

  • Philips Bedroom Docking Speaker (DS1155) – has a 360-degree design, providing rich omnidirectional sound to fill your bedroom. The clock display of the docking speaker automatically synchronizes with the clock of your Apple device, and the speaker also includes a USB port at the back of the speaker allowing users to easily charge a second mobile device.


This is breaking news and I can't say the exact moment that these speakers will become available, but I would it expect it to be any minute now, and I believe that very shortly the Apple store online will be offering them as well.
