Logitech UE Air Speaker
4 August 2012
Summary: The Logitech UE Air Speaker is a worthwhile third-party AirPlay speaker for homes demanding premium sound from iOS devices, but bargain hunters can save $100 and go portable with the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker.
Pros: Logitech's elegant UE Air Speaker can capably fill a large room with dynamic sound, and its accompanying UE Air iOS app reduces pairing to a few easy steps.
Cons: The rotating hinge under the hardware dock feels flimsy and prone to malfunction.
Summary: With an impressively sleek design, excellent sound quality and no-fuss wireless technology, the Logitech UE Air Speaker is a delight for both the eyes and the ears – but is it worth the high price tag?
Excerpt: Logitech has a new dog in the iOS speaker fight. Teaming up with Ultimate Ears — best known for the ubiquitous in-ear monitors you see worn by everyone from Bono to Bieber — the Logitech UE Air Speaker ($400) is a single-unit sound system whose engineers are out to prove that it has equal parts bite and bark. With a retractable dock and 3.5mm auxiliary input, the unit does allow for a traditional plug-and-play experience.
Excerpt: The Good (Usually) easy setup Convenient Wi-Fi streaming Above-average audio quality Stylish aesthetics The Bad Expensive pricetag Audio quality good, but not great Docking iOS devices unnecessarily difficult Slightly awkward button placement If maybe a little more slowly than Apple would like, AirPlay is becoming a staple of the wireless speaker market for iOS devices.
Conclusion: The Logitech UE Air Speaker is a very competent AirPlay-enabled speaker system. It’s easy to set up and delivers very good sound quality. However, we felt it wasn’t quite as good as similarly priced speaker systems from other companies.
Logitech UE Air Speaker review: The UE Air is a commendable speaker system with decent sound quality, but it will disappoint those looking for fantastic audio.

Summary: If you own an iOS device and you're looking for a simple and easy solution to play your music in the home, you should definitely consider the Logitech UE Air Speaker. However, given its high price tag, the UE Air Speaker's audio quality is a little disappointing. This is certainly not a bad speaker system, but merely a good one that's a little overpriced.
Pros: Attractive design, AirPlay and ease of setup, Loud volume
Cons: Overpriced, Distortion at high volumes, An overall muddy sound
Excerpt: We like Logitech's speakers, and we like AirPlay, Apple's technology for streaming video and uncompressed audio over Wi-Fi. In theory, then, we should like Logitech's first AirPlay speaker, the Logitech UE Air Speaker. And we do - but not without reservations.
