Our take on the UE Boombox™

by Ralph Graves
Ultimate Ears

Bluetooth to share

What's better than sharing your tunes with friends? Having you and your friends share tunes with each other to keep the party going. The UE Boombox can be simultaneously connected to up to three Bluetooth devices so you can do just that. Stream music wirelessly from smartphones or tablets and see who can top the last track played.

Logitech UE Boombox

High-fidelity Bluetooth

The Boombox is compatible with aptX® audio coding, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that retains virtually all the detail of the audio signal it carries. And if your — or your friend's — Bluetooth device doesn't have aptX, don't worry — the Boombox is backwards-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth. So you can wirelessly stream your music from almost any portable device and still enjoy great sound.

An auxiliary input lets you connect a non-Bluetooth portable and play its music through the Boombox, too.

High-performance sound

And the Boombox has high-performance drivers to handle that high-quality Bluetooth signal. Eight custom-tuned drivers reproduce your music with impressive accuracy. You'll enjoy clear, spacious sound with plenty of presence. Durable design

The UE Boombox is built for action. The handle is die-cast aluminum – it's not going to break apart from repeated use. The speakers are protected by a stainless steel grill, the case by a rubber exterior.

And the system's built-in rechargeable battery deliver up to six hours of operation. So the Boombox is good to go for a day on the deck, a night under the stars, or just a lazy day hanging around the house.

Features

Wireless Bluetooth Speaker: The Logitech UE Boombox is a self-powered Bluetooth speaker that is ideal for your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablets, players and other devices. The UE Boombox streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled devices such as your Apple iOS device, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, computer/PC, or other devices. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to navigate your music and to view song/artist information.

Multi-Device Pairing: Up to 8 Bluetooth enabled devices can be paired with this unit and up to 3 devices can be connected simultaneously. However, only one Bluetooth device can be played at a time. Once paired, the UE Boombox will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 50').

Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the UE Boombox.

Stereo Speaker System: The Logitech UE Boombox features two 0.5" tweeters and  two 3" woofers powered by a 2-channel amplifier for clear highs and detailed midrange. Additionally, four rear-firing 2.625" passive radiators provide complementary bass. 

Auxiliary Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the UE Boombox is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone output.

LED Indicators: Green and Red LEDs indicate power, charger, and battery life. A Blue LED indicates Bluetooth pairing and connectivity.

Carry Handle: The UE Boombox features an integrated carry handle which makes it easy to to take the Bluetooth speaker with you from room to room.

Rechargeable Battery + AC Power Adapter: The UE Boombox has a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 6 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily recharged from the included AC power adapter. Charging time is approximately 4 hours. The AC power adapter can also be used to power the Bluetooth speaker.
