Summary: The Logitech Mini Boombox Bluetooth speaker doesn't sound quite as good as the Jawbone Jambox--or look quite as slick--but it can play loud and has identical features for about half the price.
Cons: The Mini Boombox can't handle heavy bass at higher volumes and the glossy finish is prone to showing scratches.
Excerpt: Logitech have being making some of the nicest gear for PC users out there for some time now with an absolutely huge range of products to suit just about any user out there today. In fact, the Mini Boombox was so good at pairing using Bluetooth that after the first time (being paired), all that's required is that the speaker to be switched on and the rest automatically calibrates itself.
Summary: For a wireless speaker that can be carried around with ease, the Mini Boombox does tick all the right boxes. A small speaker will always have limitations with regards to sound quality and loudness, but this one works well within the boundaries.
Pros: Tiny form factor, Adequate punch from tiny speakers, Bluetooth handshake with all smartphones, Battery backup means truly portable
Cons: Works well only up to a certain volume, Glossy bits in the design need extra care
Excerpt: This small boombox is highly portable, but not only that, it’s equipped with wireless for music streaming. As long as your phone or tablet is within 10 feet of it, you can send songs to it using Bluetooth A2DP. It’ll play for six hours on a single charge, too, which should be long enough to get through your hair metal playlist.
Summary: When Logitech announced its new Mini Boombox back in November, our advice was to give the portable speaker a listen before handing over your money. The advice wasn't due to any personal vendetta against Logitech, rather, it had everything to do with company's claim that the tiny speaker could offer an "immersive sound experience" for just $99.99 — a quote attributed to Azmat Ali, Logitech vice president of tablets and mobile in the accompanying press release .
Pros: Small and portable, Loud, Bluetooth or 3.5-mm input, 10-hour battery
Cons: Capacitive touchpanel is a novelty, Highs are shrill, bass anemic, Expensive for what you get, Poor build quality, Larger than the Jawbone Jambox
Summary: The Mini Boombox is truly a superb product that left me wondering how they could cram so much good sound into such a small package. The asking price of $99 is a tad higher than other Bluetooth...
Pros: Best-in-class sonic performance, Excellent bass response for its size, Gorgeous looks, Abundant power, Innovative control panel
Cons: Perhaps too large for small "gear bags", No carry pouch, Top panel is prone to scratching
