logitech ultimate ears mobile boombox review


Logitech is no stranger to any gamer or computer user because it is one of the biggest brands that manufactures computer+gaming accessories like the mouse, keyboard, and speaker. However, with that being said, there are not many people who know that Logitech also manufactures products like the earphones and headphones. As a matter of fact, those whom have heard of Logitech’s Ultimate Ears [UE] Series are a select group of musicians and avid music listeners whom have tried Logitech’s UE earphones or headphones.
Recently, we were given the opportunity to review one of Logitech’s UE relatively new portable Bluetooth wireless speaker known as the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox and we were quite blown away by its performance.

On the surface, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox looks compact and miniature. Because of its small size, bringing it around wherever we go was a breeze as we could easily fit it into our bags. In case you’re wondering how heavy is it, it weighs only 298 grams. However, don’t be fooled by its small stature because when the occasion calls for it, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can really pack a punch!

From Logitech 2013

Unlike any other portable Bluetooth wireless speakers which can only connect one single mobile device, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox allows users to connect up to two mobile devices at any one time and is able to play music from either one of the mobile devices. As the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can also double up as a speakerphone for voice and video calls, you need not worry about missing any phone calls when listening to your favourite hits.

Now, we put the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox to the test and here are our findings:


After 1 full charge of the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox, we connected my Apple iPhone 5 to the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox via Bluetooth and played music from the SKY.FM App. After which, we measured how long the battery could last until it depleted and guess what, it lasted way longer than my fully-charged Apple iPhone 5. As our Apple iPhone 5 depleted with the test, we couldn’t continue testing it but the duration we measured was approximately 5 hours! If not for the depleted battery of the Apple iPhone 5, we believe that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox could go beyond 5 hours as it was tested by Logitech that it could last up to 10 hours!

Sound Quality

Besides having a long battery life, the quality of the sound produced was really superb. We played a few genres of songs ranging from classical and acoustic to rock and heavy metal, and we find that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox was very suitable for classical, acoustic, jazz, and baroque songs. For rock and heavy metal songs, the sound produced was “bassy” and “boomy” but when you play it at the maximum volume, the sound was not so clear and got rather distorted. Hence, playing mellow songs at the maximum volume isn’t an issue.

If you’re wondering how the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox sounds like, check out the following video demonstration:


The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is wrapped with a unique grip-action rubber casing and hence is designed to withstand a little bumps and shocks. However, as with all electronic products, dropping is a NO-NO because it will damage the mechanics on the inside. The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes in 5 different vibrant colours of lime green, sea blue, white, black, and red for you to express your own style and you can be sure that it’s bound to attract lots of attention.

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes with a charging adapter, a three-pins plug, a two-pins plug, a user-guide, a USB charging cable, and a limited hardware warranty guide.

From Logitech 2013

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is available at all major electronics stores for the price of $149.00 and it comes with a 2-years limited hardware warranty. If you’re scratching your heads and you’re wondering what sort of gifts to get for your friends, this might just be the thing!
