Logitech Wireless Boombox Hands-on [Video]

The folks at Logitech have been hitting the production mill pretty hard lately with some precision-targeted products that access the gadget collectors everyday needs, and their new Wireless Boombox is no exception. Alternately branded as the "Logitech Wireless Boombox for iPad", this audio blaster has the ability to both input audio via Bluetooth or a simple 3.5 mm aux jack in the back - and yes, a cable to plug in here IS included in the package. We got the opportunity to take a look at this lovely device at the 2011 Pepcom Holiday Spectacular, an event in NYC with devices for us to get our hands-on to the max!

This device works with Bluetooth A2DP, which means it'll work with essentially any sort of bluetooth-capable device you throw at it, including iPad 2, iPad, iPhone 3G and later, iPod Touch 2nd generation and later, basically every single Android device, BlackBerry device, Symbian device, whatever you've got, just so long as it's Bluetooth capable. If you are using Bluetooth, you'll be able to have the boombox and your music-holding device as far as 33 feet (10 meters) away from one another, their busy chatting staying in-tact inside that circle.

If your music-holding device doesn't have Bluetooth, it's likely got a 3.5 mm headphone jack in it, so you'll be able to plug in anyway. Once you're hooked up and the boombox is charged, you'll have 6 hours of wireless audio blasting on your hands, no problem. You can also plug in with the included 6 foot long power supply cable if you want to blast beats forever, and of course you get a few user manuals in the box if you're confused about any of these ultra-simple controls.

The speakers in this boombox include two 3-inch laser-tuned neodymium drivers for mid-range sounds, a couple of half-inch tweeters for high notes, and a total of four 2-inch radiators for deep bass thumping. This boombox will set you back $149.99 USD and is available starting this week from Logitech.
