The Good The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is a very compact Bluetooth speaker that has a built-in rechargeable battery, speakerphone capabilities, a line input, and ruggedized design. It sounds good for its tiny size.
The Bad The Mobile Boombox just can't produce a ton of bass.
The Bottom Line The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox sports an improved design and slightly better sound than last year's Mini Boombox -- for the same price.

I liked the
Now, under its Ultimate Ears brand, Logitech has put out a sequel to that product, the UE Mobile Boombox. Fundamentally, it's a very similar speaker, but the engineers have made some design improvements and slightly improved the sound while leaving the list price unchanged at $99.99.
The Mobile Boombox is smaller than the Jambox and weighs in 10.5 ounces (298g). It's easy enough to stow in a bag or backpack and it's obviously small enough to easily tote out to the patio, pool, or beach (it really is quite small). It makes for an excellent travel companion.
