Logitech Wireless Boombox, wireless stereo sound (Bluetooth) and laptop (6 h battery life)
Many of you will be asking the Three Kings or Santa for your gifts, and you will also be trying to fulfill the dreams of your family and friends. Maybe this ticket will give you a good clue. If at the end of last month we were talking about a Logitech accessory that allowed us to send the sound from a device to our speakers or stereo via Bluetooth, today we’re going to talk about a complete solution to enjoy music wherever we go with our devices, wired or via Bluetooth. Logitech Wireless Boombox for iPad is a portable speaker system that includes a rechargeable battery, so we can play our favorite songs without the need for a plug and with the possibility of receiving audio via Bluetooth or wired .
In this in-depth entry we will see what it offers and how it sounds. More information after the jump.
I have often thought that, with the evolution of portable music players and the disappearance of radio cassettes, the possibility of going somewhere else with our music if we did not have an outlet was lost. The Logitech Wireless Boombox is a built-in stereo speaker that has three tracks-bass, midrange, and treble-in quite a small package. It weighs in at 1.2 kg, which is a bit surprising considering its dimensions (13 × 6 × 4 cm), but it has a rechargeable NiMH battery that gives it a 6-hour battery life.
On the back we have an auxiliary input (3.5 mm stereo jack) and the connection to the power adapter, covered by a rubber piece to protect these inputs. It also has an extendable leg at the back that extends with the push of a button located at the bottom and allows us to leave the speaker ready to be used.
In the front we only found four buttons. The power button, the button for pairing via Bluetooth and the two buttons for turning the volume up and down. It would have been really nice to have another type of button so as not to accidentally turn on the equipment, since during transport it is relatively easy to press. If we take it with us on a flight, for example, we’ll have to be especially careful not to press the buttons accidentally, which is a bit contradictory for a portable device.
Many of you may be wondering about the specs. The funny thing is, you have to dive deep into the Logitech website to find them. Here they are. As you can see from the link above, the power is 20w if we use it connected to the electric current, and 10w with the batteries. The difference in volume is really noticeable, so whenever possible we’ll want to have it plugged into the power supply.
Going back to the specifications, we see that it has two 7.6 cm neodymium drivers, two 1.26 cm tweeters, and four 5 cm passive radiators (if there is an expert in the room it would be nice to hear this last point about passive radiators). Bluetooth transmission is A2DP compatible and is very easy to pair with the chosen device.
The sound quality is pretty good for a portable device, although it is obviously a bit overdone. That’s why it works especially well for “hot” pop, rock, electronic or dance music. The sound is quite good if we connect it to the current, if it is by batteries the volume sins of being a little low. I think it’s an excellent accessory for those who need portability or to enjoy music on a terrace, field, improvised party, etc.
The box also includes a 3.5 mm male-male cable for connecting accessories. Although advertised as an iPad accessory, the Logitech Wireless Boombox is good for any device, whether or not it has Bluetooth, and is priced at 149 euros, although it is now on sale for 134.10 euros on its website. If you want to enjoy good sound and also need portability, the Logitech Wireless Boombox is a good accessory. We recommend it.
