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: The Logitech UE AirPlay Speakers are a single soundbar unit that offers a sleek design coupled with full, rich sound. Even at high volumes, you should hear clear, undistorted sound that will fill any average room. The AirPlay speakers are AirPlay enabled, which means you can control the speakers from anywhere within a single Wi-Fi network's coverage using any Apple or iOS device.
Pros: The Logitech UE AirPlay Speakers' long design adds full sound that can fill any living room or small business, and the sound quality maintains a punch, even at high volume.

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.
Logitech UE Air impresses, but audio quality is just decent

Excerpt: (1 items) Logitech’s $400 UE Air Speaker gets an awful lot right. The UE in its name stands for Ultimate Ears, the formerly independent headphones company Logitech acquired back in 2008; Air refers to Apple’s wireless AirPlay technology, which the speaker uses superbly to play streamed music. Add to that a hideaway iPhone/iPod/iPad dock cradle, brilliantly easy setup, and very nice audio, and you get an impressive, easy-to-recommend speaker.
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.
Summary: Apple fans looking for a speaker dock built with their devices in mind will adore what the Logitech UE Air Speaker has to offer. The sound quality is more than satisfactory but it is the ease of use and stylish good looks that will win the first-time user over!
Excerpt: Logitech's UE Air Speaker uses Apple 's wireless AirPlay technology to play streamed music from a compatible iOS device. The UE Air is a large, but good looking speaker system that's ridiculously easy to set up and use, but its sound quality is a little disappointing considering its price tag.
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.
