New Kensington QuickSeek™ FM Transmitter for iPod® Finds Clearest FM Station in Seconds

  • May 15, 2007

Spend More Time Enjoying Your iPod Tunes, Less Time Searching for a Station


Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in mobile computing and iPod accessories, today announced the latest addition to its award-winning line of FM transmitters. The new QuickSeek FM Transmitter finds the clearest FM station for transmitting iPod tunes through a radio within seconds, improving transmission quality and convenience. This way, iPod users can enjoy their music, with crisp, clear sound, while eliminating the time-consuming tuning often needed to play an iPod through an FM radio.

In the past, consumers who owned an FM transmitter would have to toggle through each FM station in order to locate a station to transmit their songs with sufficient clarity. "This required a lot of time and effort, especially if the quality of the selected station changed in the middle of a commute," explained Kevin Ngo, Global Product Manager for Kensington. "With QuickSeek technology, Kensington has taken the headaches away by automatically finding the clearest FM station with the touch of a button."
