The Logitech Mini Boombox doesn't offer sound quality â€” or style â€” on par with our recommended Bluetooth speaker, the Jawbone JAMBOX. However, at half the JAMBOX's price, it may be adequate if you're looking to free your music from your smartphone and don't want to deal with cables or spend more than you did on the phone. For under $100, the mono-only Mini Boombox provides decent sound quality, a usable speakerphone, and can run for up to 10 hours on its rechargeable battery.
