What Hi-Fi

Easy set-up, AirPlay equipped, powerful, entertaining sound

from What Hi-Fi
Logitech has taken a gamble moving into a more expensive pricepoint, but we’re pleased to say it’s paid off. The UE is a superb AirPlay speaker dock and a great option for wireless music... Full review

It’s a good-looking AirPlay-compatible speaker

from Macworld
Even though the UE is the largest speaker we reviewed it didn’t have the best audio. While sound quality was OK when using it at mid-volumes, it deteriorated quickly when increased. A disappointing result for the largest and most expensive device in a test group. On the plus side, the app that you use to configure the Wi-Fi settings on the UE can also be used to adjust the bass and treble settings; something that no other unit in this group test allows you to do. Changing the default settings provided slightly better sound but still disappointing overall... Full review

An impressive listening solution in a small, well tuned package

from GottaBeMobile

There are cheaper speakers, but the Logitech UE Air Speaker deliver an impressive listening solution in a small, well tuned package.

I prefer the UE Air Speaker over the Philips Fidelio AirPlay speakers. While I like the smaller size of the Sonos PLAY:3 speakers, the need to purchase a separate WiFi bridge brings the price up close to the UE Air speaker. The Jambox is great for taking on the road and for small rooms, but doesn’t measure up to the sound put out by the UE Air Speaker.

The Sonos system still wins for putting a speaker in every room, but users looking f... Full review

Its sound quality is a little disappointing considering its price tag

from PCWorld
If you own an iOS device and you're looking for a simple and easy solution to play your music in the home, you should definitely consider the Logitech UE Air Speaker. However, given its high price tag, the UE Air Speaker's audio quality is a little disappointing. This is certainly not a bad speaker system, but merely a good one that's a little overpriced...

AppAdvice

Although music and video sound good, at best, the lack of thumping bass is a major let down

from AppAdvice
Logitech’s UE Air speaker is a good first attempt at an AirPlay speaker. Its minimal design looks great and would fit nicely in any home, but its high price tag cannot be justified due to its poor bass response and lack of features... Full review
Digital Trends

Attractive industrial design, good-quality amplifier and sound quality

from Digital Trends

Logitech’s UE Air Speaker sounds better than iHome’s less-expensive iW1 (we haven’t reviewed the iW2), but it lacks that portable speaker’s built-in battery. The Air Speaker’s audio quality is very much inferior to the pricier B&W Zeppelin Air, but we don’t know if that’s because B&W is using a higher-quality amp, better drivers, or if that speaker dock is just doing more to massage the audio signal (whether it’s streamed over the network or from a docked device). We do know that the Zeppelin Air upsamples the digital audio signal with... Full review

Commendable speaker system with decent sound quality, but it will disappoint those looking for fantastic audio

Worthwhile third-party AirPlay speaker for homes demanding premium sound from iOS devices

from Cnet
The Logitech UE Air speaker features impressive audio performance thanks to the AirPlay wireless standard. It makes an excellent bookshelf speaker, but be prepared to pay a premium for the relatively new technology. If you simply can't get past the price, however, a Bluetooth speaker like the SuperTooth Disco may fall more within your reach... Full review

It failed to live up to what we had hoped for

from TechRadar

Ultimately, we are disappointed in the Logitech UE Air Speaker. This is, after all, not only Logitech's first AirPlay Speaker, but the first time that the well-regarded Ultimate Ears brand - the 'UE' bit in the name - that it bought in 2008 has been applied to a speaker dock.

There is nothing wrong with it that knocking a hundred off the price wouldn't fix, and if you find a store selling it for under £200/$300 before the end of 2012, it's worth picking up. That, though, is damming with faint praise.

It suffers, in other words, because we were so excited about it... Full review

PC Magazine

Solid wireless AirPlay dock at moderate volumes

from PC Magazine
Overall, the Logitech UE Air Speaker has plenty going for it including a lower-than-average price, but if you listen to bass-heavy music, it's not the best choice. The recent iOS update from Apple eliminated the streaming issues many AirPlay docks suffered from earlier in the year... Full review
