Coby launches a deluge of updated LED TVs, mobile speakers and headphones

Coby has rarely been shy about making a full-court press at CES, and it's keeping up that tradition with a mountain of media-focused launches at the show this year. The highlights? Its new edge LED-lit 18 and 56 Series TVs promise thinner bezels at frugal respective prices of $499 (for a 32-inch 18 Series) and $119 (19-inch 56 Series). They're being accompanied by small and mid-size soundbars (seen below) with Bluetooth at $80 and $100. Those who prefer their audio in portable form also get their fill: there's five mobile speakers ranging from a $20 battery-powered set to the $80, subwoofer- and Bluetooth-toting CSBT85 speaker dock you see above.

On top of an already crowded lineup, there's also a small army of headphones incoming with a few pleasant twists for the entry-level crowd. Among the more notable models, the $8 Jammerz Talk, $10 Attitudz Chat and similarly priced Jammerz Flat Budz bring in-line microphones to budget earbuds, while the $40 CVBT10 and $50 CVBT20 offer Bluetooth in mid- and full-size headphones. The company hasn't provided specific release dates for the headphones or any of the other new devices we've seen so far, but its massive catalog is available after the break.
