There are all kinds of ways to connect your favorite wireless devices to a dock, speaker, or sound system these days. In fact, one has wonder whether or not people still use radios that are not connected to some kind of device.
Regardless, if you’re looking for a solid speaker for your iPhone, iPad, tablet, or other wireless devices, you may want to check out Logitech’s Wireless Boombox. As the name suggests, this boombox is wireless and it is meant for use with any number of wireless devices.
What you may not expect is that Logitech decided to forego AirPlay for Bluetooth. Now, this may seem kind of strange, since it has been proven time and again that AirPlay produces better sound quality. Yet, Logitech chose to equip this boombox with Bluetooth in order to bring down the price of the device. Price aside, this boombox can do everything you want it to do, and the sound coming from the Logitech Wireless Boombox isn’t half-bad either.
Let’s Talk Sound
No boombox, stereo, speaker, headset, or other music device is worth any price if the sound quality is sub-par. Buying any device that produces tinny sounding music is akin to purchasing an empty plastic case that simply takes up shelf space. Thankfully, Logitech understands how important sound is. As mentioned, sound coming from a Bluetooth device is not as good as the sound that an AirPlay device can produce, but it’s not terrible either.
The bass coming from this boombox is full of great sound and those high notes can be heard without straining. You can place this boombox in any room or outside on your deck, and you’ll be happy with the sound coming from it. The Logitech Wireless Boombox is a bit bulky to carry around, but this isn’t billed as a portable music device, so portability shouldn’t be a deal breaker. If you want something casual that plays good music, this device is worth looking at.
Setting up Logitech’s latest music offering is simple too. All you have to do is hold down the Bluetooth button, synch your wireless device, and you’ll be ready to roll. Logitech has made sure that there are no connectivity hang ups with this boombox, and that’s something worth noting time and again, since so many of these devices are difficult to use.
If there’s one thing that this reviewer is not fond about, it’s the shape and size of the Logitech Wireless Boombox.
To say the least, this device is bulky. So, it’s an OK option if you want to put it on your bookshelf or out of the way, but it’s not a good option if you are looking for a sleek player that will become the focal point of your room.
As mentioned, this is also not the boombox to look at if you want something that’s highly portable. You’ll have a hard time stuffing this baby into any overnight bag.
