Logitech UE Boombox Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

It was actually a bit old to know that Logitech bought the well-reputed Ultimate Ears (UE) back in 2008, but it would always be new to know that the company is now aiming on speakers particularly the portable types of it. We’ve come across a lot of models from different brands catering wireless portable speakers, but with what Logitech now has to offer, you better take a look at what really style should look alike from the company’s perspective. Our deal for today: the new Logitech UE Boombox.

The name ‘boombox’ isn’t new to the ears already, and we can still commemorate the days when big stereo speakers are being shoulder-carried at night to wake the late dreamers. Now, the new Boombox of Logitech almost promises the same show, except that instead of putting it on your shoulder, you just get a handle. On the design, the Boombox of Logitech looks like a radio except without the knobs and channel dashboard, but what you see is an almost edge-to-edge speaker grille, pure aluminum body, and a very minimalistic approach to making the speaker one that seems to belong to Darth Vader.

With a measure of 15.2×3.1×6.5inches and with a weight of almost 2kgs, the Logitech UE Boombox isn’t really light but isn’t that heavy as well; you can still get the strain after an hour or less of carrying it. Thankfully, inside comes eight drivers plus a 6-hour battery life to make your upbringing more worthwhile. Being wireless, you should play and connect up to (only) three devices to be remembered via Bluetooth, and if you’re thinking about AirPlay or any of the like, there’s not a support for it. However, you might still want to carry a 3.5mm cable for your playback device, and the Logitech UE Boombox supports an auxiliary port for those.

Before I miss it, the Logitech UE Boombox also gets a little bit of a tint to make the metallic body a little less intimidating: there are the blue rubbery plastic panels on both left and right ends. On one end, you get two big plus and minus buttons for controlling the volume which you need to hold the other end to tap or the device will move a little, and the other end houses the controls such as the power switch, the big Bluetooth pairing button that blinks blue, the aux port, and the charging port. Pairing is fairly easy as any other Bluetooth speakers we’d come across so far, and pairing is said to be effective for up to 50ft of distance.

Inside the Logitech UE Boombox are eight drivers, namely: two 0.5-inch tweeters, two 3-inch woofers, and four 2.75-icn passive radiators. Incredibly for its size and form, the Boombox really outweighs itself for the sound volume level it can unpack, and what’s better in this is that it has given more emphasis on the lows and the bass. Setting the volume in the middle will already give you a room-full of quality sound, but I’d suggest you just want to keep it that way or you will hear distortions on the lows when you hit the highest volume level. Sound quality is up to par with clear vocals and mids, and though the lows can sound a bit washed if not too electronically polished, you can still admire how much this relatively small speaker can give.

The Logitech UE Boombox is a real solid performer for its size, but we should actually get a longer list for other options offering prices cheaper than $240. Easy pairing and connecting options, good emphasis on bass, long battery life, and the sleek look all make the Boombox truly promising, but if you are looking for much cheaper options with up-to-par sound quality, there are still a lot out there to know.
