Logitech mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod
12 September 2014
Summary: The Logitech mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod are useful and affordable--and they sound good, too.
Pros: Travel-friendly folding design; built-in rechargeable battery; includes travel pouch, wall charger, and remote; great sound; acts as an iPod charger when plugged in; line-in port for non-iPod MP3 players.
Cons: Slightly larger than other travel speakers; sound distortion at highest volumes.
Excerpt: Logitech’s newest system, mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod ($149.95), is among the great ones. The one-piece glossy white plastic and metal-grilled system starts by fixing several of the deficiencies of Logitech’s earlier, cheaper mm22 portable speakers (iLounge rating: B) , which included a couple of flip-up speakers, a simple metal table mount, and a little central cup to hold your iPod in place.
Pros: A four-driver dockable, portable speaker system with impressively balanced, low-distortion sound, an included remote control, carrying case and internal rechargeable battery, all at a reasonable price.
Cons: Little sound control, IR-based remote requires line-of-sight and relatively short (though twice Altec’s iM3) distance to operate, battery runs only 10 hours.
Summary: If you’re planning any time away, you’ll doubtlessly want to take your iPod with you – and ours is in desperate need of a playmate for the holidays. So, to try and satisfy various musical demands we’ve placed our player in the hands of Logitech’s mm50 dock and speaker combo. 'Pod parties a go-go Initial impressions are great. The mm50 comes with foldaway feet and a neat carry-case so you can slip it in your luggage.
