I am not a Tech Blogger. I am not a “sound” person, by that I mean I don’t have any audio training to give any expert comments. But from a pure consumer’s point of view or a person who listens to music everyday, I am here to give you a reason why I think Logitech UE products are worth a try. Also, this could be a guide for your Father’s Day gift to the special man in the family.
We’re not doing this for everyone. We’re not doing this to blend in. Or to fit a lifestyle. Unless that lifestyle is music. Pure, undiluted music. Because everything else is noise. And noise distracts from what really matters. Call us obsessed. Single-minded. And you’re right. Because all we see is music.
Logitech UE™ 900 – Noise-Isolating Earphones
The Logitech UE™ 900 Noise-Isolating Earphones deliver sound that’s surpassed only by our Custom In-Ear Monitors, thanks to four-armature speakers per ear and a three-way crossover in a universal fit. You get clean, well-rounded, textured sound – a wide soundstage with soul-satisfying bass, heavenly highs and a crisp, piano-like timbre. The Logitech UE Sound Signature faithfully recreates the original recording and adds a low-end kick. Five silicon tips and three Comply® Foam Tips each designed with a large-bore opening, ensure audio is delivered cleanly. Two detachable, braided cables – one with a mic and controls, and one without – let you swap out the standard cable for the cable-plus-mic and controls option. Ear loops offer a secure, comfortable fit you can wear for a long time.
Earphone type: in-ear
Cable length: 48 inch
IMHO: The UE 900 is definitely for the musicians. While listening to songs, I can distinctively hear the different instruments and the singing part was very clear and crisp. However, if I switch to heavier bass music like trance music, the bass was not as ideal. Another great point for UE 900 is the ear loops design. With this design, this model becomes the perfect gift for a Dad who loves to run.
Logitech UE™ 9000 – Wireless Headphones
The Logitech UE™ 9000 Wireless Headphones combine custom, laser-tuned drivers and a high-quality Bluetooth® connection for a spacious soundstage and a remarkable level of power, punch and clarity. Logitech’s active noise-canceling technology filters out ambient noise for an immersive listening experience. Intuitively placed controls allow you to select songs, turn up the volume, or answer a call – naturally and easily. And because life should feel better with headphones, not without them, the Logitech UE 9000 Wireless Headphones feature plush memory-foam cushions, flex-fit, rotating joints and a sumptuous, form-fitting, around-the-ear design that conforms to the contours of your head.
Wireless range: 50 feet (15m)
Headphone type: around-the-ear
Noise isolation: 26dB
IMHO: If the UE 900 is for musicians, then the UE 9000 has to be for DJs. Where it lack out on the crispness of the instruments or voice, it definitely made up with it’s powerful bass. The perfect headphone for trance or live concerts. With the wireless feature, there is finally a headphone without the hassle of getting entangled while on the go. And the design is not too bulky too. With it’s swivel joints, it is definitely a love for the DJs. In fact, a part time DJ friend tried it for a while and immediately loved the bass and design. Did I mention the noise-canceling effect? This is an incredible gift for the Dad who needs some quiet peace and enjoy his music.
Logitech UE™ – Mobile Boombox
The Logitech UE™ Mobile Boombox is an ultraportable Bluetooth® speaker that can double as a speakerphone for voice and video calls. You can use your smartphone or tablet to play and control your music from up to 50 feet away. And because two mobile devices can be connected at the same time, you and a friend can take turns playing music. Designed to give you surprisingly big sound in a portable package, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox has a 10-hour rechargeable battery. And with metal finishes, vibrant accents and a unique grip-action rubber casing it’s built to look good, feel great in your hand and withstand a little rough and tumble.
Dimensions (LxWxH): 111 x 67 x 61mm
IMHO: The most wonderful feature of the UE Mobile Boombox is it’s mobility! Though it may small but the power packed within is pretty decent. Though it may not bring forth the clarity as compared to the earphones or headphones, but the fact that it is so easy to bring around, works well with many families (check out how it is compared to iPhone5 in size). If you want your Dad to show off some of his latest sound tracks or videos to his friends, nothing will go wrong with this little Boombox.
In 2 weeks time, it’s Father’s Day and all men generally love tech toys, so these series of toys from Logitech will be a perfect match for all the music loving Dads! Why not take the chance to surprise the man at home and appreciate them for their hardwork both in the workplace and at home.
