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
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.
Pros: Designed to augment the sound of tablets and smartphones, the Logitech Mini Boombox is a very compact--and cute--Bluetooth speaker that has a built-in rechargeable battery, speakerphone capabilities, a line input, and touch controls. Its sound is impressive for its tiny size.
Cons: The Mini Boombox can't handle heavy bass at higher volumes and the glossy finish is prone to showing scratches.
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
Can Logitech's little Bluetooth speaker live up to the hype and compete with the Jawbone Jambox?
3 January 2012
Summary: costs $199 (or less: it's been on sale for $150 recently) and provides a far more enjoyable listening experience that can be personalized and expanded with additional features. Better yet, the Jambox can, at times, live up to Logitech's hyperbolic claim of creating an "immersive sound experience" especially when listening to music tracks recorded for three-dimensional binaural listening.
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: Small, shiny, and cute, the $99 Logitech Mini Boombox does a good job of delivering loud, clear audio for a speaker of its size. Audiophiles won't be overly impressed, and those looking for a more pocket-friendly option might want to check out the $99.99 Spar Zephyr 300. Overall, though, the Mini Boombox is a solid choice for business travelers or anyone who doesn't have a lot of desk space.
