After our run in with JBL's Micro 2 and Micro Wireless portable speakers which put quite a few speakers of their caliber to shame, we've also secretly had our hands all over the Flip wireless Bluetooth-enabled portable loudspeaker, which is to say the reputable audio brand's $99 Jambox killer in a clean-cut suit and tie. Where the Jambox got its reputation using cutting edge styling backed by a brand that's all about deliciously colorful and updated design, JBL's Flip is more of a technical know-it-all speaker with hardcore performance to back it up. Care more about the sound and less about what Beats By Dre fanboys have to say? You know where to find our full review, on the flipside!Read More
There's a new portable wireless speaker in the neighborhood. Until the next best thing soon follows that is. Back when Logitech released its Mini Boombox and then quickly dusting it under the carpet, the small and glossy speaker had its fair share of issues on all fronts. Back from the dead and sporting a much needed redesign from the inside out, meet Logitech UE's new Turbo Bass button-less Mobile Boombox. It's now the smallest speaker ever to be called a boombox and you bet it's portable. That'll help ease the pain busting that small boombox over your head. You can do it one handed it's so small.
The Mobile Boombox features dual audio drivers amongst other things, a whopping 10-hours of battery life and it sounds as good as it looks for the $100 asking price. Is it the Jawbone Jambox assassin or just another pretty little thing with unforeseen mediocrity? Catch our full in-depth review after the break!
