Product Description

Product Description

The incredible bass and enveloping experience of a home audio system is now available on the go. The Logitech mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod uses 3" pressure drivers to maximize bass and minimize distortion. The rechargeable Li-ion batteries last up to 10 hours, and you can charge both the speaker system and iPod battery simultaneously. Using 3-D sound processing that "widens" the stereo effect, this system's sound seems to come from an area about two feet wider than the speaker itself. And with a custom travel case, you can take the big sound from this small package anywhere.

The Logitech mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod utilize 3-inch pressure drivers to maximize bass and minimize distortion, creating the full experience of home audio for life on the go. The use of 3-D sound processing also widens the stereo effect, so that this system's sound seems to come from an area about two feet wider than the speakers themselves. The speakers are powered by an AC adapter or rechargeable Li-ion batteries, come with a credit card-sized wireless remote, and are easily compatible with all docking iPods. If you don't have an iPod with a dock connector, just use the auxiliary outlet.

You also get a protective case and 2-year limited warranty that give you both security and peace of mind. Should you find yourself overseas with these speakers, the AC adapter is international voltage capable, truly letting you enjoy your iPod's music wherever you go. The Li-ion batteries last up to 10 hours, and you can charge both the speakers and your iPod simultaneously.

Sound quality is very good, thought not excellent.

For more portable applications, this Logitech mm50 is BY FAR the best system out there for the size.

When I first purchased Altec Lansing inMotion speakers for my iPod near a couple years ago, I immediately fell in love with them. They were the kind of things you took in public and people would say "That's coming from those little speakers!?!" While treasuring them on every road trip and day outdoors, I had one question in my mind: "When is a product going to top this one?" Although all kinds of iPod speakers followed in their footsteps, this is the first time one in the same league has topped the inMotion speakers.

Yes.. In my opinion, these are the best travel speakers you could possibly buy for the iPod. Below I will review why these are the best choice over Altec Lansing's inMotion speakers, JBL's OnStage speakers, and larger systems such as the Bose SoundDock. I will also review the pros and cons of the mm50s as a stand-alone product.

Why buy these over JBL OnStage speakers? - These not only sound better, but can be played without plugging into an electric outlet. The OnStage set is popular because they look cool and sound good. When such a compact system has no option to run off batteries, the size seems to be in vain.

Why buy these over the Bose SoundDock? - The sound quality is near the same league of that produced by the SoundDock while selling for a fraction of the cost. The Bose SoundDock is essentially not even a travel system because you need to plug it in an outlet whenever you use it. Beyond that it is really too large to comfortably fit in any kind of suit case while leaving room for anything beyond a single pair of socks. The Logitech MM50s are convenient for packing with your luggage and could be played for 7 or more hours at a time without needing a plug.

Why buy these over larger boom-box style systems?

Verified Purchase
I was very very impressed with the mm50 speakers

Sound quality-wise, these may be the best out there ---- I have a tough time telling these ones apart from the Bose ones (which I consider to be the best)

Honestly, it is probably equal, and maybe even, better than the Bose speakers ----- and at this price, they are also cheaper and smaller

the mm50's are definitely packing much better sound quality than any of the Altec Lansings I have tried (including the iM7)

For portability, I think this is the best package out there

For loudness, you might be better off with the iM7's, but still, I found these to get very high volume, while still maintaining an acoustic crispness

And for sound quality, you can pick between these and the Bose - but you won't go wrong with these ones

happy buying!!!

I have a Nano iPod, while my sons have the video iPods. I drop mine a lot, cutting the lawn, etc, and Nanos are just about indestructible. I keep all my music on the computer, and about 10 hours worth on the Nano. I love it.

I searched carefully, first reading EVERY review of a small stereo unit to play the ipods. Next, I went to several stores and tested them ALL, with my iPod, playing Bob Dylan music. I download his concerts, so the sound quality is not always the best; which is a great way to test the various units.

I tested volume, sound quality, bass, treble, and fullness. The Bose and Apples $350 job play the loudest, with Bose having the nicest sound. Both are ridiculously overpriced. I play my Nano through my Bose Acoustic System, which is great. But:

I wanted something completely portable. I didn't want to pay a fortune for battery drain. I wanted something loud enough for the beach, working outside, etc. I wanted something that did not distort at loud volume, but something that also sounds beautiful at low volume.

Everything I tested became distorted at high volume. Everything, except this unit.

1. Sound quality. Sterling. Although not as loud as the Bose, in terms of separation and clarity, it comes VERY close to the Bose.

2. built in battery. Lithiom battery that lasts about 10 hours on a charge!

3. Small, but with some weight to them. (not light plastic garbage...that "heavier feel" that good speakers have, even though they are portable.

4. Zip up case for protection.

This is a wonderful, powerful little unit with about the best sound.

5. the price!

$149 at Circuit City.

$109 refurb. here at Amazon sellers.

Wisest purchase I've ever made, right next to my ipod. I wanted good, quality sound that came at a cheap price, and thats what I finally got. I started by looking around at the possible choices. Altec lansing's systems intrigued me, so I tried one out. BIG MISTAKE. I bought the some basic altec lansing speakers, the white ones that fit most ipods. They sounded terrible, especially at slightly high volumes. All scratchy and horrible sounding, the tiny speakers couldn't handle it. So I took them back, lickity split.

I searched around a bit more, and checked out some higher priced systems. There was the infamous bose sounddock, everyone's dream speaker system, but the 300$ price tag just completely detracted me, even though it probably is the best sounding ipod speaker system. But yeah, I'm not gonna spend that much.. not gonna happen. Anywho, right when I was about to give up, the Logitech mm50 caught my eye while surfing a ipod site.

I decided to give it a try after reading excellent reviews. So I went up to my local best buy and bought one for 150. Really inexpensive, considering the crappy altex lansing was the same price and sounded terrible. When I plugged it in I was soo impressed with the sound quality. Logitech seriously outdid themselves.

Sound Quality:

truely inbelievable. It sounds absolutely crisp, clear, clean, and loud, just how I like it. Even when turned up on the highest volume possible, it still sound amazing, and very little distortion. Only if you're playing a heavy metal song with very deep bass it'll distort a little, but for most rock it sound amazingly good at high volumes. Especially when you press that button that makes the sound "3D" or something. Just really good audio quality for the size.
