Logitech UE Boombox Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review

Probably almost all people could not imagine life without music. It would be like looking at a beautiful landscape through a black and white lens. Although the era of boomboxes has been gone for two decades now, there is still a hint from that era that continues to exist today. Even if we don’t see people in the streets carrying their cassette players over their shoulders, there are still some people who listen to their portable music player on speakers just like in the ‘90s. Most of the people nowadays listen to their music players using their headphones but even that could be tiring and an inconvenience. Hanging around your patio or in your garden is best paired with music listening from your favorite singers. The finest way to enjoy your music would be by listening from great sounding speakers. The problem is your phone or music player’s speaker may not be that decent. Listening to it may not be worth your while but maybe the Logitech UE 984-000304 Boombox Wireless Bluetooth Speaker would. The speaker boasts itself with delivering well-rounded sound. There is a reason why it’s called the Boombox and it only brings the nostalgia of the ‘90s.

Cons

Some people may find the speaker too big and heavy to make it portable. That is the reason that the speaker is fortified with a sculpted aluminium handle. People who can’t carry heavy things may not want to get this because it weighs about 2Kg. The battery life may not be enough to some people especially when playing in maximum volume. Since the speaker is equipped with 3 different audio drivers to bring a booming bass, people may find the sound bass-heavy. So far, there are no accessories available for this product that you can find on the web or even on Logitech’s website.
