Logitech is rolling out a brand new version of its UE line with both on- and over-the-ear headphones, ear buds, Bluetooth boomboxes and a new smart radio. These devices look to be quite stylish, even if a little on the expensive side.
The device that caught my attention the most is the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox. It come in at US$99 and is fully Bluetooth compatible. The reason it piqued my interest is how small and portable the device is. It has a length of 11.1 cm (4.4 inches), a width of 6.7 cm (2.6 in) and a height of 6.1 cm (2.4 in). It is available in five colors.

The Mobile Boombox (pictured below), like all the products from this line, is available for preorder now. This means I have not had to chance to get my hands on one and hear the sound quality, but I have owned a few Logitech audio products in the past, and they have never disappointed.
In addition to the Mobile Boombox, there is the full-size UE Boombox. This device comes packed with a lot more power. It has two dedicated tweeters and subs, while the Mobile Boombox only has two small speakers. The price tag is also much higher, at $249.
Another device that caught my attention is the Smart Radio, that connects to Wi-Fi and plays streaming radio from sources such as Pandora, Spotify and other popular services. You can also stream your music collection from your computer to the Smart Radio. A free app for smartphones allows you to control the Smart Radio from across the room.
Of course, there are a ton of different headphone models available with the launch of the new line. They start at $99 for the wired, on-the-ear UE 4000 and jump all the way to $399 for the Bluetooth, over-the-ear UE 9000.
All the devices in this new line are expected to launch next month.
