Summary: I originally saw this music player when a friend of mine purchased one- a year later, I managed to find the same kind and instantly bought one. It's wonderful! Loud enough to keep a group of two-dozen jugglers and other circus artists inspired for the afternoon, portable enough (and with a decent enough battery) to throw in a backpack and keep the same group well-entertained by the ocean.
Summary: Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2 Compact Docking Speakers for iPod and iPhone (Black) I ordered this for my son's graduation Friday morning. It is now Wednesday morning. The thing came with a non USA, ac adapter. There is no iPod adapter as promised. The manual is the pits. I don't know what to do. I am bed ridden and cannot trot down to Radio Shack for new adapters. Amazon has always been wonderful to me before. I am pissed.
Summary: So far, so good. I've been using an MM50 for over five years with a 5.5 gen 80 GB iPod and have been thoroughly satisfied with it. I saw an Anywhere-2 on clearance at Target for $49.00 and couldn't pass it up. This isn't going to replace my home stereo, but for the hotel room while traveling, the bedroom, bathroom while getting ready in the morning or out on the deck, it's top notch, better and louder than the MM50 in side-by-side testing.
Pros: Good sound, and isn't that what really matters? Solid construction. Rechargeable battery. I like that the charger and remote fit in the travel case, a nice improvement over the MM50. I hope whoever came up with the cord storage got a nice bonus.
Summary: Just bought this at local chain for my wife's mp3 player (NOT Apple - so connected via Aux Input). Sound quality is great BUT the unit shuts itself off even on AC mains power when playing quiet music passages (appears to be a battery saving feature). Found quite a few others reporting same problem on internet and even Logitech's own website. Did the "reset" as instructed. Contacted Logitech customer support.
Avoid this product! Not as good as their older models!!

Summary: I already had owned the Logitech mm50. It worked (and still works) great! I wanted another set, but they had discontinued the older model and had the Pure-Fi Anywhere 2. I figured it was pretty much the same as the old one, so I bought it. Bad idea. The auto shut-off is HORRIBLE. BUT, my biggest complaint is that the battery doesn't last anywhere near as long as the older model. Easily less than 50% as long.
Summary: This product has the sound of a $1000 dollar system. And it so compact. I don't write many review even though I purchase almost everything I buy from Amazon, but, this little system is AWESOME. Buy it and enjoy it as I am!
Summary: This is a great compact speaker system. It sounds awesome, much louder and clearer then you would expect. I use it all the time with my iPhone 4, playing music from the iPod app, Rhapsody, Pandora, Stitcher, etc. The included remote works great with all the apps and it has a nice carrying case. I definitely recommend this for someone looking for a way to get great sound from your iDevice on the go.
Summary: this thing is pretty small,3.5"x13.25".it looked bigger in the pictures.it sounds good but since its small its hard to hear more than twenty feet away while outside.i can't set it next to me while in the sun because the phone overheats and turns off so i have to set it in the shade.plenty loud inside.there is no way to carry it since there is no handle.i give it a death grip while carrying it because im afraid i'll drop it.it will charge the phone if the phone is in it...
Summary: I use the PFA-2 from Logitech with an IPhone 3GS. If you prefer listening to pretty loud music, this is a great product. BUT, it has a serious flare with the automatic power-off feature, especially with soft music. In theory, this should protect the battery, but that is in place DISREGARDING the unit works on battery or on external power socket. This means that it's auto powering off after max 2 min, especially when listening to soft music.
