Logitech X100: A tiny, travel-friendly Bluetooth speakerNor much bigger than a hockey puck, the $50 X100 plays big and fits easily in a bag -- or even a pocket.
[MUSIC] This is the X100 Logitech, hockey puck size, Bluetooth speaker that retails for 49.99 and comes in 5 color options. I am not sure why Logitech sent me the Aqua colored one. I mean I am not really an Aqua guy but hey I'm not complaining. Hi I'm David Carnoy, and welcome to another C|net video review of a portable bluetooth speaker. As you can see this is a micro wireless speaker and it competes with such models as the JBL micro wireless, and the Wumbachs travel. They're all similarly shaped, cost around 50 bucks. And produce bigger sound than there tiny size would indicate. I like the hard rubberized finish on the speaker. And it seems fairly durable though it isn't water resistant. It's got a little loop on top that allows you to hang the speaker. From a backpack or doorknob. Or wherever or you could just lay it flat and have the single driver fire upward. Battery life is rated at five hours which seems about average for this type of speaker, and it has speaker phone capabilities and an ancillary input for nonBluetooth devices. It charges via micro USB. I can't tell you that this model sells any better than it's competitors. The Divoom actually plays louder. But it does sound decent for what it is. And as I said, I like the design. Some colors, the black version for instance, can be had for closer to $40, which seems more like what you'd wanna pay for this speaker. For bigger sound, you can opt for the Logitech X300, which retails for $70. It isn't as portable as this one, but it's still quite compact and has multiple drivers. I'm David Carnoy and that's the Logitech X100, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
