Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description -- Posted October 19, 2008 Get great sound throughout the room with Logitech's Pure-Fi Express Plus Speaker Dock for your iPod or iPhone. The Pure-Fi Express Plus features omnidirectional acoustic technology, which provides great sound at a more consistent level throughout the room. It also includes the ability to run on AC or battery power, which--along with an integrated handle--makes it easy to take your music from room to room. Other features include a clock with alarm, so you can rest assured that you’ll wake on time; and a wireless remote control that works from up to 30 feet (10 meters) away, and stores neatly in an integrated compartment. In all, it's a great way to dock, play, and charge your iPod or iPhone.

Logitech’s Omnidirectional Advantage: Make Any Spot in Your Room a Sweet Spot
You don't sit in one spot when you’re listening to music from your iPod. Shouldn’t your speakers produce great sound no matter where you are in your room? Most of today's speakers for the iPod are designed to deliver the highest-quality sound immediately in front of the speakers. If you move from what audiophiles call the sweet spot on the couch to the impromptu dance floor, the sound you hear can easily become distorted, and you might find yourself out of step.

The Logitech Pure-Fi Express Plus omnidirectional speakers are designed to transmit sound more consistently over a wider range of space, so you never miss a beat--no matter where you are in the room.

Traditional Versus Omnidirectional Loudspeakers
Most speakers are designed to radiate sound in a fixed direction. As shown in Figure 1, traditional speakers optimize sound for a sweet spot located directly in front of the speakers. In other words, the sweet spot is limited to a constrained sound field that fans outward in one direction. If you’re outside the sweet spot, you’ll hear unbalanced sound due to loudspeaker directionality.

Logitech Audio Labs' omnidirectional speakers differ from traditional speakers. Designed to radiate sound more uniformly over a wider range of frequencies and angles, Logitech’s omnidirectional speakers create a broad sweet spot that is not dependent on a fixed listening position, as shown in Figure 2. The true hallmark of omnidirectional speakers, however, is the increased sound quality that comes from tonally balanced direct and reflected sound. The increased reverberant sound field also increases the sensation of spaciousness and listener envelopment. By designing loudspeakers to radiate sound more uniformly, Logitech delivers great sound to any spot in the room.

iPod/iPhone Speaker Dock
Lets you dock, play and charge your iPod or iPhone.
Omnidirectional Acoustic Technology
Normal stereo desktop speakers deliver sound from discrete sound locations, making a more focused sweet spot. Logitech’s omnidirectional speakers transmit sound consistently across the room and create a much larger sweet spot, allowing for great sound anywhere in the room.
Portable Player
Plugs in or runs on batteries, so you can take your music from room to room. Integrated handle included.
Clock with Alarm
Helps you rest assured that you'll wake on time.
Wireless Remote Control
Gives you control from up to 30 feet (10 meters) away, and it stores neatly in an integrated compartment.

It also includes a remote!
A. LaPrade
The remote for the Logitech is well designed and has a better appearance than the other Pure-Fi models and definitely better than Bose's.
The Tech Fanatic
Ok as simple alarm clock but it will not play your music to wake you up.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Unfortunately this product, while being another example of Logitech's great quality, finds itself in the awkward position of being a less enticing version of other Logitech Products that better specialize in aspects of the Pure-Fi Express Plus' feature set. The product is a good, not great performer, it's portable, and it features an alarm clock, but since Logitech has other iPod docking products that either perform better, are more portable, or are better alarm clocks, I'd recommend the alternatives first.

As far as performance goes, the Pure-Fi Express Plus didn't provide the same quality output as my set of standalone speakers with subwoofer, but it holds its weight. Logitech's Pure-Fi Dream Speaker might be a better alternative if you're looking for higher quality output (and AM/FM radio).

For portability, the Pure-Fi Express Plus is certainly nice, compact, and simple. In fact, it's a little smaller than expected (Logitech uses a 2nd generation Nano in many of the product photos which makes the Pure-Fi Express look bigger than it is). If you're primarily interested in portability, however, the even more portable, rechargeable Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i might be a better choice.

For the alarm clock functionality, the Pure-Fi Express Plus gets the job done, but it just has a buzzer (it won't let you wake up to your iPod), it doesn't feature dual alarms, and the snooze button doubles as the volume dial which doubles as the power button.

I first want to address a previous review. My Pure-Fi Express Plus doesn't have static, or white noise no matter what the volume level (anywhere from 0-40). Also, you can turn the unit off, leaving just the clock running. I'm not sure if the reviewer got a bad unit, but both statements were not true.

I was looking for a unit that sat next to my bed, played music from time to time, had an alarm clock and most importantly charged my iPhone 3G. Believe it or not, that was a much more difficult task then you would think - 95% of iPod clock docks won't work with the iPhone, let alone the 3G due to GSM buzz. This radio does it without problems. The sound quality is excellent. iLounge gave it an A- rating. It also includes a remote! Nifty!

The one thing I with was better was the alarm clock function. It's very basic, and doesn't include a snooze button, but the loud beeps seem to wake me up just fine (and I never use the snooze).

I was looking for a device with a clock which would also charge my iPhone/iPod as well as play my tunes as I fall asleep. I did a little bit of research online and came to like this Logitech device. The other day I went to buy one online and several popular online retailers were sold out, which seemed like a good sign for me. I was in a store the other day and went ahead and bought one.

First of all, I love electronic devices with knobs rather than tons of buttons, so this one had a head start in making me happy. The LED clock looks nice, that's another plus for me. The overall design is pretty ok. I mean, it looks really nice in a picture, but I'm constantly disappointed with the mega-plastic form factor of this and every other product these days. That said, this product pretty much does what it says--it plays your iPhone or iPod's music, keeps it charged, and has an alarm clock.

One of my disappointments is the lack of functionality with the remote control. You can increase/decrease the volume, fast forward/reverse the tracks, and specify continuous play or random. I'm not a big playlist kinda guy, I'm an album guy, so there's a small gap of control missing for me. The alarm sound isn't my cup of tea either, but isn't too big of a deal since my iPhone's alarm chime will play through the speaker and suits me just fine.

The quality of sound is good enough for an alarm clock kinda thing. They have some press pictures of taking this thing to the park. I doubt the sound is robust enough to satisfy that environment, but again, that doesn't bother me personally.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Go ahead and get one already!

i loved this system for the first week i had it. but shortly after it simply stopped producing any sound. power was working properly, just no sound from the ipod or alarm. the alarm would also decide on its own which days i should be on time for work. the batteries never worked for me. the sound would simply stop when the system was unplugged. no customer support whatsoever and ended up just getting a refund. apparently the problems i experienced were not isolated as i found many unanswered message board posts about these same issues. now i am hunting again for another system. don't waste your time.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Logitech Pure-Fi Express Plus is a good basic unit for those who want a speaker dock for their iPod or iPhone. The main positives of the unit are its compact size and clear sound. The omni-directional speaker design is well equipped to fill a small room. Even near the top end of the volume range it will not distort as much as other units in this price range. However, the main negatives are the relative lack of features. This unit is bare-bones as compared to others on the market. The mix of features and performance are a blend of entry level and mid-level but this unit is priced much higher than entry level units from iHome and others, including ones with more features. Users will have to decide if the Logitech brand and omni-directional speakers are worth the premium for them.Read more ›
