Logitech UE Mobile Boombox - Bluetooth Powered Music

The Logitech Boombox is a great solution for people who enjoy their music and want to be able to take it with them wherever they go. All you need is a smartphones, tablet or other device that supports Bluetooth wireless audio profile (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP)).

Simply pair your device with the Boombox and you´re ready to go. With a range of up to 50 feet you´ve plenty of flexibility if you want to leave your player indoors and take the Boombox outside – though using this feature in a public place on your own is probably unwise unless you can run like Usain Bolt…
The Logitech Boombox can even have two devices connected simultaneously so that you and a friend can take turns playing songs. But don´t worry if you don´t have a Bluetooth enabled device, there is a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting iPods or other media players.

But what about the sound? The Logitech Boombox has something the manufacturer calls the UE Sound Signature – a sound that’s undiluted, rich, clear and perfectly tuned. The Boombox has two full-range drivers for crisp high notes and warm mid-range, a passive radiator for boosting the low end and four passive radiators for deep, thumping bass. All these custom-tuned drivers result in the Logitech Boombox having a surprisingly big sound from such a small device.

And for added flexibility the Logitech Boombox has a built-in microphone that allows the unit to be used as a speakerphone for hands free calling – it even automatically pauses/starts the music when you pick up/end calls. To be able to use this feature your mobile phone just needs to support Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.5).

The Logitech Boombox has a built-in rechargeable battery good for around 10 hours of use and recharging is easy via USB or the included AC adapter.

The Logitech Boombox comes in a variety of stylish colours, so plenty of choice there. It has a unique grip-action rubber casing that feels great in your hand and is constructed with premium materials to withstand a little rough handling – though don´t try dropping it from a great height!
