The company says that the Mini Boombox can “unchain your music”, and I will have to agree. It is quite easy to pair with a smartphone, and I was listening to my music without headphones in seconds.
The sound from the thing is pretty amazing for something disproportionate to its size, and my first listen provoked me to turn down the volume right away. The buttons on the top are backlit touch panel which allow them to be used in the dark as well as the light.
My only complaint is that the official site says that you can take it with you, and it shows it being put in the side pocket of a purse. It actually is a few inches thick on either side, so you will need a thick pocket.
As for the battery life, it is good for about 10 hours worth of music. Of course, you might not want to just listen to music, and this particular device is good for taking phone calls or the audio portion of video chats.
You should be able to get the Logitech Mini Boombox for about $99.99 on the official website.
