First Look: Logitech Mini Boombox portable Bluetooth speaker

1:44 /

Logitech's tiny Mini Boombox Bluetooth doesn't quite measure up to the Jawbone Jambox, but it plays fairly loud and has identical features for about half the price.

Hi, I'm David (Carterly?) and I'm here with the Logitech mini boom box. This is a bluetooth speaker... a very small bluetooth speaker with a built in speaker phone capabilities as well as a rechargeable battery. That rechargeable battery gives you about 10 hours of battery life and the idea here is you would take your smart phone or your tablet perhaps an iPad and you would augment the sound with little speaker. It is a little bit smaller than Jawbone Jam Box which has a sort of rectangular look. This one is probably about quarters the size. It doesn't sound quite as good. It's got a little bit thinner sound as the speaker this size, you shouldn't expect great sound of it but it does augment the sound of your tablet or smart phone speakers so you can slip this into a bag, it's very light. It has some touch sensitive buttons on top of the device. I didn't like the glossy finish on top. It does seem a little bit scratch prone. It doesn't come with any sort of carrying case, protective case. So you have to careful that it doesn't get scratched up. It is very cute, that is the optimal word here. List price on this is $99. You can get it for closer to $90. It's that expensive but you do have to consider it is almost half the price of the Jam Box. And it also... while it doesn't sound quite as good as the Jam Box sound is okay so you could say it's a relatively okay value in relation to the Jam Box. David calling, that's been a look at the Logitech mini boom box bluetooth speaker.
