Logitech Mobile Wireless Speaker X300 – It’s summer and of course bluetooth speakers are usually all the rage. People like to relax in parks, beaches or even hotel rooms on vacation. There are even those who like to go out from time to time at home. Logitech recently came out with the X300, which is somewhat reminiscent of the UE Boom, which is from Ultimate Ears and is actually under the Logitech umbrella. Now, while they have similar features, does the sound match as well?
The X300 is designed as a cylindrical tube that can rest horizontally or sit vertically. When placed horizontally, there are three buttons at the top which are volume up/down and bluetooth (used to pause and play). It is built with a hard silicone rubber outer shell and the speaker grill is a smooth hard plastic material. It doesn’t feel bad in the hand and seems to sit in any position you put it in. I preferred to have it sitting, but that’s just me.

The X300 can be synchronized via bluetooth or, if desired, connected via an auxiliary cable to the port on the back. Battery life is rated at 5 hours and so far it seems to be getting close to that. To charge it, you can use the included microUSB cable that plugs into the back. Surprisingly there is no AC adapter. I guess they depend on you charging with a computer eventually or using one of your other adapters to charge (that’s what I did). Calls can be made on the X300 at the push of a button and it has pretty decent sound.

The X300 has four drivers, two on the sides and two on the front. With speakers on the front and sides, the X300 is supposed to give you sound at all ends. When listening to music, you can see that the X300 has a good sense of bass that it emits. I heard them while it has a strong bass, the actual sound is not that clear and can seem a bit muffled at times. I mean you can hear the music and it’s understandable, but it could do with a little more clarity.
Priced at $70 (retails for $59.99), the X300 is a decent sounding speaker with plenty of bass behind it. With stand or sit options, you can save space, and depending on its size, you can easily throw it in a transport bag. Of course, if you’re looking for clearer, higher-end sound, there are other speakers that will cost you a bit more.

Pink, pink, PINK!! This is a very pink speaker indeed. Was that your first impression, as it was mine? Anyway, to the point. I’ve been in the market for an ultraportable speaker for a while, but I’ve been unimpressed with some of the options out there for the price (not an urgent need, so I ended up without one). When Gadgeteer was offered this speaker to test, I wanted to try it out to see if it suited my needs.

First, let’s talk about the elephant in the room. This speaker is very pink and is what I was sent. According to the Logitech website, the color of the speaker is red. Hmm, good. Maybe in a dimly lit room. The Logitech x300 Mobile Wireless Stereo Speaker is available in other colors such as black (with a brown grill), blue and purple.
The front and sides of the speaker are covered with what looks like a grill made of plastic. The grill is stiff and not brittle, so I wouldn’t expect it to break easily.
The speaker is flat on both sides, allowing it to be placed vertically as well.

The top, back and bottom of the speaker are covered with textured rubber. This ensures that the speaker does not slide on any surface, regardless of its orientation when playing music at maximum volume. So much of the speaker is covered in rubber that I feel like I could bounce it off the floor and it might survive! Okay, I’m exaggerating.
Also on the back of the speaker is the power button located at the bottom left. Just below the power button is the status light, which will tell you if the speaker is ready to pair, paired, charging, or fully charged. The audio-in port and the mini-USB port for charging are located on the lower right.
The top of the speaker has the volume up and down buttons along with the Bluetooth button, which is used to pair the speaker with devices and receive and end phone calls. The microphone that works with the speaker function is also located next to the Bluetooth button.

Overall, I like the feel of the speaker. It seems well made, not flimsy like some other small portable speakers.
The user guide is just a series of pictures that show you the parts of the speaker, how to pair it with a device and how to use it as a speaker. So, to find out more details about the speaker, like what the different status light states mean, you had to go to the Logitech x300 support site. The first time you turn on the speaker, the light will flash blue rapidly (light blue when not charging and flash red when charging) indicating that it is ready to pair. For all other pairings, you must press and hold the Bluetooth button for three seconds, after which you will hear a rapid succession of tones and the status light will slowly flash indicating that it is ready to pair.
I turned on Bluetooth on our iPod Touch and it quickly discovered the speaker. I then tapped the Logitech x300 in the list of devices and they paired, no PIN or code required. At this point several high pitched tones were heard and the blue status light stopped flashing and stayed on indicating a successful pairing. Pairing with our Nexus 7 (2012) tablet, HTC One X phone and PC was equally trouble-free. However, I had some audio issues with the Logitech x300 until I realized that our wired Logitech speakers were interfering with the Bluetooth speaker. After turning off the wired speakers, the x300 was able to play sound.

The Logitech x300 doesn’t come with an audio connection cable, but it does have an audio-in port that allows any device with a 3.5mm audio output to work with it. Our Nexus 7 (2012), iPod Touch, and HTC One X played music through the speaker via our own audio connection cable without issue, and it sounded the same or sometimes a bit quieter than when connected via Bluetooth.
One thing I found I really liked about the Bluetooth pairing of this speaker with our iPod is the fact that the volumes were synchronized. On all other devices, the speaker volume controls were separate from the hardware volume controls.
The speaker’s battery is rated for an average of 5 hours of playtime, which isn’t as good as the Logitech UE Mini Boom’s 10 hours of playtime. However, tests showed that at a moderate volume level playing all genres of music, the total playback time was just over eight hours. With the volume at maximum, the total playback time was about four hours.

The speaker does not come with an AC adapter and therefore must be charged via USB from a computer or from a power strip with USB ports. I couldn’t find the Logitech x300 technical specifications regarding loading time, so I had to figure it out myself. My tests found that the battery took four hours to fully charge after being completely drained. As the speaker charges (and shuts down), the status light flashes red very slowly until it is fully charged, at which point the light turns off.
This speaker also has a speaker function. My tests also showed that it worked well. When I received calls through the speaker, the caller was clear. However, the person speaking into the speaker must be within a foot of the speaker. If you speak more than a foot away, the voice on the other end sounds hoarse.
My next curiosity was Bluetooth connectivity. The unobstructed Bluetooth range for speaker/iPod pairing went up to 46 feet and worked well even with two walls between them. With every other device, Bluetooth connectivity was surprisingly disappointing. Music started to drop at 17 feet with the speaker/Nexus 7 (2012) and still was able to maintain connectivity through a wall. The range for
