Plug the Logitech MX Sound Speakers into a Mac While It’s Paired to Your iPhone & iPad

Why have speakers for your Mac or PC and separate ones for your wireless devices? Logitech has an interesting alternative with the MX Sound ($99.99). The beautiful speakers can plug in to your computer using the 3.5mm input jack, while also being paired with not one but two Bluetooth devices. This means you could connect an iPhone and an iPad to the same high quality speaker and alternate use between the devices.

I liked the MX Sound's circular design. They improve quality via separate left and right speakers which are angled at ten degrees to project stereo sound right at the user. It's only sold in black, which should fit in most places, but I'd like to see more color options.
