Let me tell you something you might not know about me — I’m addicted to mini Bluetooth speakers. I love their portability and the convenience of not having to mess around with wires whether jamming in the shower, grocery market or impromptu beach trip. Logitech isn’t exactly helping my “condition” with the release of their new (and simultaneously sexy) Mini Boombox.
In what could be considered the miniature version of their larger Wireless Boombox speakers, this little guy features dual-drivers for stereo sound and even an acoustic chamber for some added bass. When paired with your device (whether it be your phone, tablet or computer) the Mini Boombox will give you around 10-hours of battery-life with it’s built in rechargeable battery. Since there’s a good chance you will be pairing this with your smartphone, the Mini Boombox also features a built-in microphone for taking quick calls in between listening to your Justin Bieber Christmas Album.
The part I found most interesting were the backlit touch controls found on top of the speakers allowing you to skip tracks, answer calls and the like. On the back of the speakers are an on/off switch, mini USB port for charging and a line-in (in case you want to hook up a non-BT device).
For me, mini Bluetooth speakers are well worth their weight in gold but the $100 price tag on Logitech’s Mini Boombox will most likely deter some. When compared to some of Logitech’s rivals — like my $200 Jawbone Jambox — the Logitech Mini Boombox sounds a lot more appealing. My Christmas list just got a little longer.
