Recently I was searching for a good Bluetooth speaker after getting disappointed by the Le Tv Bluetooth speaker. Luckily there was a lighting deal going on, on amazon and I was able to grab Logitech X50’s for 1400 bucks. So after using them for more than a month, here I present you my review.
- Power Rating (RMS): 3W
- Driver Size: 1.5 in (38.1 mm)
- Sound Pressure Level (SPL Max): >78dBC
- Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR): <-85dBr
- Frequency Response: 132Hz – 20kHz
- Battery Details: 750mAh; 3.7V
Design and Build Quality
The Logitech X50 features a plastic body with a rubberised bottom. On the top, you get a different colored plastic grill with triangular sections. This makes the whole speaker look funky and cool. There are three circular buttons on the side which too are made up of rubber. On top, you also get a multi-colored LED which turns blue when turned on and purple when pairing.
Overall the Design and build quality are great. I have dropped it a few times and there is not even a single scratch on it.
On the connectivity front, you get an option for auxiliary input as well as for Bluetooth. The Bluetooth used here is Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) which ensures you get max range with good quality of sound. I would have liked the inclusion of an aux cable. In the box, you only get a small micro USB to USB cable.
The sound is clear up to 90% of volume bar. It gets pretty loud and is sufficient for medium to large rooms. It is even louder than the Le Tv Bluetooth speaker and has, even more, bass then it. Actually, it is as loud as the speakers triple of it’s size. The Bass and treble are on point and you won’t be able to differentiate between its sound and sound of any 2.1 which you might be using with your PC. Because of this, I have removed my Creative 2.1 setup as it used to create a lot of wire clutter. I can’t show you how loud it is or how clear the audio is but believe it. It is Amazing how such small speaker outputs such fantastic audio.
The battery life claimed by Logitech is 5 hours on 100% volume. in my testing, I was able to get 7 hours of playback in 6-70% volume. This will be enough for a medium sized room so normally you can expect a battery life of around 7 to 8 hours. Once the battery is drained, You can charge it within 2 hours.
If you are someone who appreciates good music then You should definitely buy this. This is far better than any speaker in this range and even better than speakers in the upper range. I have listened to the Mi Bluetooth speaker as well and this one has better base output due to its cylindrical design. It is small and compact so you can keep it anywhere you want. Just keep it oil your backpack and you are good to go.
