I have been hearing a lot about the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox so I decided to find out what all the hype was all about and get one myself.
The package that it comes in is a nice solid plastic case. Under the Mobile Boombox is the charging cable and USB and Wall plug charger plus all leaflets. I was surprised to find that it already comes charged for you to use immediately.
To be honest this is my first small speaker purchase because I thought they would sound hollow and not have much audio clarity or bass. So I picked it up to find that it felt very solid and the outer skin is a rubber like material so if it did happen to vibrate off a table it would inflict minimal damage on it. the volume up/down and Bluetooth buttons are under the rubber and are easy enough to push but also makes it that much more rugged. The battery life on this is around 8-10hrs on full use which did surprise me because my iPhone went flat first.
Now the big surprise.....I pressed play on my iPhone to be completely stunned and amazed to the sound quality coming out of this tiny speaker. It is crisp and clear and has nice bass to it and even at full volume there is no distortion whatsoever. The Bluetooth range is good, I can work around much of the house without it losing signal with my iPhone. I have used this at work, home while cleaning and gardening, just chilling listening to music. I did feel that the charging cable could be a little longer.
All in all I have been using it for a week and must say that Logitech has done it again! Size, Sound, Functions are all impressive. This speaker is also value for money, at $99.95 it is sure to impress as it is affordable for all.
This does a great job with voices. Confrence calls and movies are easily heard, people sound right and you will sound good to the people on the other end, plus the microphone is pretty good, you can be several feet away and be clearly heard by the people on the other end.
Music sounds good, not going to shake the room with bass but again, vocals come through nicely and acoustic instruments sound fairly good. Best traveler solution I have come across.
I LOVE this little guy! I was looking between these new models from Logitech and the Jawbone and I made the right choice. It's so small and packs a ton of battery life and sound. I have read that on Logitech's earlier model that it sounds like the music is coming from a can. I found if you turn off your EQ in your iPod settings it fixes that from happening. The Jawbone does have more bass but $70 more. It has surprisingly good low end for a speaker only 3 inches wide. I can crank it up and fill the entire apartment with rich and clear music! Its quite impressive for something that fits easily in a backpack or purse. On top of the nice sound it projects it has a simple and fun design. highly recommend this product! Highly!
