Logitech's Wireless BoomBox, Good Vibrations via Bluetooth

So why on earth didn't more of the major players think of this one a long time ago?  With all these people walking around with Bluetooth-ready music to stream, why not design speaker systems with Bluetooth connectivity as well?  Perhaps I've been living under a rock.  I mean sure, there are a few Bluetooth ready speakers out there from the likes of Bose and Creative but there really aren't that many worth considering, when you think about it.  And who the heck wants to "dock" mechanically?  Uggh...  dude, that's so 90s.

Then, out of nowhere, Logitech pops into my inbox offering up their Wireless Boombox for evaluation here at HH.  I'm thinking, okay, who was the marketing rocket scientist that came up with the naming for this product?  I'm slightly miffed at Creative's weak attempt; now Logitech is stepping up with an 80s retrofit?  God help them.  I'm already cranky.... SURE, send it over.  I'll be gentle, honest.

Obviously you've never googled "bluetooth speakers." I find your lack of skill disturbing.

I have plenty of times in fact and I find the lack of options and product availability "disturbing."

Dave,

Would be great to get a follow up review after a few weeks of living with it. Did you experience breakup, what was the real world range. How did it do room- room and room to outside. My experience with Bluetooth in the past has not been pretty - it would be interesting to see if audio streaming has improved

rocman, good points on range. I have not yet experienced any issues but admittedly only have wandered about 40 ft max from it thus far. I'll have to not that and look at it further. This really wasn't intended to be a review, but just a light-hearted blog post on my experience with the device.

"I've never been wild about Bose and their overpriced products, I admit I've heard a couple of their offerings, and they sound good and crisp, but no way am I paying for their asking price. Anyhow, ahh yes , the Foo Fighters, man that 90's rock, love that era. Dave you need to put some funk in your trunk, maybe some Dr Dre and the *The Chronic* , maybe some Wutang 36 Chambers, lol just kidding, not your cup of tea. Nice little speakers, let see how they progress as you keep on testing them out."

Hey the Foos just released a new album a couple months ago! What's so 90s? :)

I like it all actually... as long as they're good musicians.

"Apart form Hip Hop, I also grew up with 90's rock bands, it was a nostalgic time in music,  Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters,Hootie, the list go on and on. I was totally digging rock back then, but from the 2000's and up I just stop listening, was not finding as good of music as what was put out during those glory days, the only new band that I liked was System of a Down. Going to check out a bit of that new Foo album you mentioned, also going to re visit some of the 90's song the mesmerized me over the weekend.  Enjoy your little bluetooth friend."

Really... What are your top 10 hip-hop albums then?

Anyways... Glad to know Logitech can still provide good sound quality for at least half-of-the-price. I have heard of Bose and Creative but Bose does tend to be somewhat overrated and I haven't tried Creative so I can't tell you my opinion on that; but I can say that they make good sound cards.
