Logitech Introduces Bluetooth Enabled Mini Boombox – Take Your Tunes On The Go


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.

  1. when you say you are addicted to them, do you mean to imply that you have amassed a small collection of them?  i am somewhat interested in picking one up, specifically the supertooth disco.  thoughts?

    1. Yeah, I have the Jambox, Philips BT speakers, X-Mini’s and a mini Samsung speaker and I’m eyeballing even more on eBay =/

      Supertooth is actually on my Amazon wishlist. Lol It’s funny cuz it’s almost the same price as this little Mini Boombox. Of course, it’s nowhere as near portable. It fits more in the medium range category with Logitech’s Wireless Boombox which I’ve been meaning to check out (which runs about $150). 

      Supertooth sounds like a much better value…

  2. How is Bluetooth audio in general? I don’t expect audiophile level sound, but I don’t like a “tinny” sound either.

    1. It’s fine. I used AD2P with my phone and car stereo and works awesome.

      1. @jclokwork:disqus Ditto. I’m primarily Bluetooth now. Whether it’s portable speakers or in my car stereo. I haven’t noticed enough sound degradation that would switch me back to aux…

        1. Yeah not you but “Mike” would. Good ol’ Mike, the audiophile.
          I’ve seen him post about the Android “bluetooth issue” before. Getting the hater vibe from him, I’m just sayin’.

          1. Hah! I do hate it. It’s really my biggest peeve with Android. It’s be easy to fix, so there’s really no excuse. I’m stuck on an old Moto Milestone with a broken headphone jack until the Galaxy Nexus, so I HAVE to use Bluetooth in my car and it’s driving me nuts.

            I am ‘into’ music; I play in bands so there’s loads of top end from the cymbals and I have to scrutinise recording quality for my own purposes, but I wouldn’t say I’m an audiophile. It just sticks out like a sore thumb!

  3. Raises the question.. is my rezound going to have beats audio via Bluetooth or only via 3.5mm aux.. hmm.

    1. It will most likely be just like HTC’s SRS sound currently in their Sense devices. If so, it should work fine with Bluetooth =)

      1. I hope so.  I was wondering this too ‘cuz I use LG Blutetooth headphones in the office with my phone.

  4. I’ve been eyeing the Phillips ones. Just not sure I want to drop the money on what amounts to a portable speaker that I probably won’t use a whole lot

  5. Bluetooth audio on Android is awful. The bitpool is too low so you end up with a tonne of compression on high pitched bits (think hi hats and cymbals sounding really crackly) Its identical to streaming a really low quality mp3 from the internet all the time.

    Do not think you’re getting a premium (or even decent) experience with these. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t notice recording quality, then I guess it doesn’t matter, but for the rest of us, you’d literally get a better experience with a set of wired speakers from the dollar store.

    Annoyingly, a 20 dollar, 6 year old windows/symbian phone would sound great through this. Its an android problem.

    1. How bout if you use the 3.5mm line in… That’d probably sound fine. I personally do not hate wires.

      1. That’s what I mean: fine with wired, but until Google get their shit together, there’s no point investing in expensive Bluetooth units, because they will just sound awful. Wired PC speakers would sound perfect.

  6. I got a similar speaker by Monster last spring. Mine was great for taking on holiday.
