Logitech Wireless Boombox

Logitech's Wireless Boombox is the perfect speaker system for true audio portability that not only allows you to move sound to virtually anywhere in the house or outside for that matter but the quality of the sound is quite decent. Even better is that unlike some other portable speakers that require your Smartphone to be docked to the speaker system, the Wireless Boombox by Logitech supports Bluetooth connectivity from a variety of devices.

This means that you can stream audio directly to the Boombox without the need for docking it or connecting it to an audio cable, although it does support and come with an audio cable. The design of the Boombox is also quite snazzy and measures at around 15.5" (length), 4.75" (high), 2.25" (width) and weighs around 134 grams. With its sleek black design, it would not look out of place in any home or office. Even with the foldout stand at the back, the design is quite minimalistic yet stylish.

  • Wireless Speaker

  • Power Supply (1.8 metres)

  • 3.5mm auxiliary cable

  • User documentation

Whether you have an iPhone 4S, laptop, an iPad 2 or a HTC Smartphone, this product easily pairs with any Bluetooth 2.1 enabled device with an impressive range of up to 10metres. The only tricky aspect of the Boombox is that it automatically connects to the last paired device, so if you want to connect it to something else, you will need to manually establish a new connection but given how easy these devices are to use, it's no real issue. It also supports up to 8 paired devices.

Although the product can be connected directly to a 240 connection, it comes with a rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery that supports a whopping 6 hours of battery life. We even timed the battery in our tests and it actually last a little over 6 hours.

Technical Specifications

  • Wireless audio: Bluetooth® (A2DP)

  • 3” laser-tuned neodymium drivers:2

  • ˝” neodymium tweeters: 2

  • 2” passive radiators: 4

  • Rechargeable battery: Nickel-metal hydride

  • Battery life: 6 hours**

  • Auxiliary input: 3.5 mm (cable included)

The main highlight of course is the audio and although you cannot compare it to some high-end speaker systems, given its portability features and size, the quality is quite decent. The reason for the high quality sound is due to the two 3” laser-tuned neodymium drivers that help create a rich mid range. Add in  two ˝” neodymium tweeters and this produces some crisp high notes.

Lastly, the four 2” passive radiators add for the bass of the sound. I was actually quite surprised that the bass wasn't too deep which is sometimes a shortfall of portable speakers in order to make up for its lack of power. With that said, the quality of the sound was very clear with no distortion or an overtly powerful bass.

In terms of controlling the music and audio, this is done through your device, whether it's a tablet, iPad or notebook. It's actually quite cool using the iPhone 4S to control as it's just like using the device standalone, however the audio quality is far superior when its streamed to the Boombox.

Conclusion

If you're looking for a well-built mobile speaker system that produces clear audio without any distortion or hiss plus the ability of Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity to stream audio and a 6-hour battery life, than the Logitech Wireless Boombox is the product for you. Recommended!
