Great speaker, except for one fatal flaw
14 October 2013
Summary: This is a great speaker overall. I use it for parties in a fairly large living room (2 floor vaulted ceiling, probably about a 15'x25' space), and it does great. Excellent highs and mids, and good bass. Setup is a breeze with the iOS app, and the airplay connectivity works great. The unit looks great and has a solid build quality.
Summary: I tested several stereos in the store before I bought this one. It sounded the best by far. I have been using it for almost a year, and I couldn't be happier. The sound is great, and it doesn't distort at high volume. I use it in my home office, and I also take it on trips with me (to hotels, etc). The sound is just amazing for such a small stereo.
Summary: Unlike many I have found this device a nightmare to connect to, on occasion I manage to get a connection and stream music to it but more often that not the device isn't picked up by AirPlay devices (even with the Firewall turned off). I bought this in August 2013 and have had to go through the set up process countless times without any luck (I have just spent another 2 hours fighting with it). Odds me of lobbing this in the bin are reasonably high.
Summary: I've always been a huge fan of Logitech. I've bought their mice, keyboards and various other peripherals for many years now, and their attention to detail and quality of design and construction has always been excellent. Their UE Air Speaker is a revelation if you need high-quality, wireless, semi-portable audio. It's compact, good to look at, and delivers superb audio quality for it's size. It is not audiophile quality, but nothing in a case this size possibly could be.
Summary: The sound is ok, loud enough and sounds clear (below 75% and on a good wifi connection) and looks great, plus easy to set up. The downsides are: - the fact that it doesn't support older ipods or have the connection for future ipods/iphones.ipads, so is very 'current'. - Doesn't work with android phones or older computers - No remote control - Airplay only- one major problem for us in a shared house is that for every new connection from, say one phone to another, the...
Summary: Having brought one of these before xmas I have returned and brought a second for the kitchen. For around £100, there is nothing that compares in my opinion. They look sleek, the sound is excellent, the set up is easy and intuitive - they just work. Only downside I have come across is that it has some issues with the WIFI signal when the mircowave is on - but have researched it, WIFI and microwaves don't get on so it's not the devices fault at all. Unsure? Buy it.
