They say Old is Gold – may be not always, especially with music systems! Remember those olden times when music systems used to be huge and occupying large chunks of space, not to mention the bulky wiring which was scary and cumbersome! These music systems came in multiple components too – turntables, cassette player, CD / DVD / Blu-Ray player, Radio Tuner, Antenna, Amplifier, Speakers and so on… Of course, not all the components were simultaneously required and depended on the times that you are recalling them from. But you get the idea – music systems were large and not miniaturised. Though there were smaller systems, usually, they compromised on the quality of sound. The interesting part is that not everyone needed sophisticated high quality music systems. Many of us prefer to carry our music with us easily. Quite a few of us are casual music listeners and like music solutions with good sound quality. Earlier, this was not challenging, to say the least.
Fortunately, we live in good times and rapidly advancing technology has made miniaturisation a reality without compromising on quality. We now have solutions for casual listeners of music that come in small form factor but with good sound quality. Moreover, there is high level of flexibility given the fact that these devices do not need to contain everything in themselves and can pair with other devices like your laptop or your iPod to provide good quality music. Additionally, storage systems have become extremely portable with the advent of USB Pen Drives and Micro SD Cards.
For those who don’t just love music, but live for it and also want to carry it easily with them, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone is the perfect solution! While the Boombox is small, yet the exciting part is that its sound production is big with good quality! It provides amazing sound plus Bluetooth wireless freedom.

We purchased this product some time back and have not had even the slightest reason to regret it. In fact, for its price, size, features and sound quality, it is an excellent choice of speaker. It is much better and popular than most other small form factor music solutions too – that goes with even its later variants from Logitech!
