Rated 5 out of 5†by borarob amazing sound for price and size
The volume and quality of sound that comes from this little box is simply amazing for the money. I would have been happy at £200 but at just under £100 its a steal.
One thing that often gets mentioned is the lack of remote. While this isnt necessary if you are just doing airplay from a phone/ipod/ipad this is a pain when using it to play from the dock or other external source.
I have found though that this dock does have an IR eye which can be operated with any apple remote! Apple TV ones. those that come with macs, etc etc. So get yourself one of the little white ones from ebay for a few quid! This will adjust the volume on external sources, do volume and track change for docked ipod, and if you airplay the sound out of an apple TV to your UE it will do volume and play/pause of whatever you are watching.
Very useful, strange that nobody seems to have mentioned this before... HTH

Rated 4 out of 5†by Sunfold tremendous value for money
Bought 2 of these at under £80 each! (£300 each only a year ago).
Use as airplay speakers in the hall and a bedroom. Main Hi-fis (via airport expresses) and Apple TV run other bigger systems around the house.
Surprisingly good quality and room filling, and if using airplay (recommended) then it is great that I can select on the iPhone or ipad which sets of speakers are on, and individually control the volume of each room. Access to all of my music via wi-fi through mac and itunes. Nice to have the music all around the house.
One speaker is hidden under a piece of furniture so the ability to adjust base and treble via the phone app is ideal to reduce the base on that speaker.
In sons bedroom can be used via his iphone to play his own music on his phone, while mine plays from the Mac. He can stream music from youtube (obviously without the video). He also docks his phone from time to time, for direct access & to charge it up.
Overall well pleased.

A few of the reviews i had seen around had made me worry about this product before i bought it, but once i opened it up and had it set up in minutes i was instantly beyond impressed with its sound quality and clarity in strength! Highl recommend, so much so i am think of buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5†by davymul at £99 this is superb value
As someone who listens to a lot of music but can't quite afford top of the range or even mid range music systems at 300 pounds and up into the thousands I've been frustrated for a long time in searching for a decent sounding music player. This dock ticks all the right boxes. The sound is great and I couldn't believe a speaker dock could sound as good. The airplay capability is excellent and if desired you can dock a classic and play music that way. There are a few issues or volume button no remote etc and I certainly wouldn't pay the full rrp but at the price richer sounds are offering it for this is a steal. I live in an apartment and the sound level and detail is more than sufficient.
Ps richer sounds service excellent. Free delivery and arrived within 3 days.Will be doing my shopping ffor electrical goods here from now on

Rated 4 out of 5†by dgJam07 At this price......
Been looking for an airplay speaker but always felt they were overpriced, spotted on Richer Sounds this speaker at a big reduction and at this price a no brainier! Good sound, loud enough and perfect for a family to easily share music using airplay. Would be disappointed if I had paid £300 but at £99 a bargain. No reason not to buy at this price!!!

Rated 5 out of 5†by TVJohn Nice design, great sound, simple to operate
Apparently the 'UE' in the name stands for Ultimate Ears and the Logitech UE Air doesn't disappoint in this respect. The bass is amazingly extended for such a small unit and it never sounds harsh, event at higher volumes.
I'd never used Airplay before so it took me a little while to get it working. Unfortunately the unit is a bit too far from our wireless access point to work well but I can see that in another environment this would be a great feature.
The only minor gripe is that the inclusion of a remote would have been nice. At the original RSP of £300 I certainly wouldn't have bought it, but at the current offer price of £100 it represents great value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5†by c1874 Good value but sound a bit dissapointing
Purchased this dock on the back of the what hifi review and that someone i know has a Logitech UEboom which is absolutely fantastic.As this was originally priced at £300 I was expecting a lot better sound quality than what it is.It was immeadiately obvious that the sound was very flat for a speaker which won the what hifi award in a £250+ bracket.Compared to say the dre beats box which is about £350 it falls very short.Having said that though at the discounted price of £100 it is good value will go as loud as you want without suffering and the sound is decent at this price
