The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is small, sleek, sounds great, and is available for under $100. PC Mag likes its "warm, clear sound," and says that "you won't find a better all-around package close to its price." And Android Police likes it better than the more expensive Jawbone JAMBOX, saying that "it sounds every bit as good as Jawbone's flagship speaker" and that "it really lives up to the Ultimate Ears name." Android Police also likes its 12.5-hour battery life, and PC Mag says it "works well" for phone calls, and its "speakerphone feature works better than most."

If you're looking for something that closely matches the Jambox in portability and sound, but costs substantially less, the $100 Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is the device I'd recommend.

I can vouch for the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox as a solid speaker with good sound that gives the more expensive Jambox a run for the money.

You might find louder and sharper Bluetooth speakers than the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox, but you won't find a better all-around package close to its price.

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox sports an improved design and slightly better sound than last year's Mini Boombox -- for the same price.

You don’t get a lot of details, especially with messy and difficult to render tracks. But if you really need to listen to music with a speaker in those situations, the Mobile Boombox is a good versatile choice.

The rechargeable battery lasts 10 hours, and it was easy to not only pair lots of devices ... but also connect two devices at once and take turns playing. Unfortunately, it couldn’t get as loud as the other two speakers we tested, and the sound quality was just OK.

This is one of the best sounding mobile speakers around, and compared to other mobile Bluetooth options, it's a decent price, too.

With plenty of colors to choose from and an affordable price, there really is no reason not to pick this one up if you are looking for a portable mini boom box of your own.

Overall, I'm really impressed with the Mobile Boombox, especially after having used Logitech's Z515 speaker (which doesn't sound nearly as good and is twice the size). I would easily recommend this over the Jawbone Jambox - it really lives up to the Ultimate Ears name.

The Mobile Boombox does sound way better than any built-in speaker in smartphones and tablets, so it does have added value for mobile devices. That said, £79.95 is just too much for this product. There are more expensive models with similar specs, but they sound much better. Cheaper alternatives...

As much as we like the gummy design and the way it performs, the Mobile Boombox is potentially a risky $100 investment and that's a shame because we thought this would otherwise be a nifty little Bluetooth speaker.

I got this little guy from a friend who thought I do not already have enough portable speakers. Actually he wanted me to know, that I was crazy to spend so much cash on the foxl 2. But he got it all wrong. The more I listen to this thing, I understand why you have got to deal out so much more for...

Love it for music and podcasts on the go. Very easy to operate, works with multiple devices, tough and small to fit most anywhere. I have an old Logitech speaker dock (iPod era) that I use an Aux jack on and the sound is about as good in a bluetooth portable. I originally wanted it for a audio...

I have been looking for a portable speaker that had a few things that were important to me. Sound good, great battery life and being very portable in size. This speaker covers all of them. It sounds very good compared to the jam box, the battery life is great and I can use it all day and not...

I have been looking for a Bluetooth speaker to use with my phone and computer to play music for a while now. I really like the minimalist look and feel of this Logitech UE Mobile Boombox. It has a soft touch feel, and is very easy to setup and use. The sound quality is above average, and the...

The UE Mobile Boombox sounds very good for its size and price. I've used both cheaper Bluetooth speakers (the HMDX Jam) and more expensive ones (including UE's full-size Boombox), and the Mobile Boombox strikes a very good balance of value and quality. It gets reasonably loud for a small speaker,...

I was looking for an inexpensive wireless speaker with a little bit of expendability while still having decent sound quality in addition to being loud. After doing a little bit of research I ended up buying Logitech's UE Mobile Boombox. If you consider yourself an audiophile you will most likely...
