One of the best wireless speakers around is the “Boom” series from Ultimate Ears, brought to us by Logitech.

We’ve reviewed the Megaboom earlier on this channel and this time around received a couple of its younger siblings: the Wonderboom. Sound like a South African name – in fact it’s also an airport near Pretoria...

So, my expectations were mixed as the Megaboom had a terrific sound but could the Wonderboom come even close?

Look at the thing: not bigger than a grapefruit!

Edifier is a brand that is probably not as well-known as it should be here in Australia.

Yet they have a huge range of speakers with the R2000DB and its $370 price point sitting about midway in the lineup.


So let’s have a look and listen to this multimedia system.

If there is one thing that Jabra is well known for it is their range of speakerphones for hands-free calling. Most new cars these days have Bluetooth calling built-in but if you drive an older vehicle you would greatly benefit from the ability to legally make calls and received them while driving.

I have a 2010 Ford Territory which has Bluetooth 1.0 which allows me to make calls but not play music through Bluetooth but I much prefer to use the Jabra TOUR which will do both.

Here is a quick review.

On my desk are 3 Logitech products we reviewed and that have been there for ages and are in daily use still: the X-530 speakers (12 years old!), the G-15 Gaming Keyboard and the Logitech MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse, both 10 years old.

Message: buy a Logitech product and expect a long and good life together...

So, even though it wasn’t time to replace the X-530 speaker system when Logitech came out recently with the Z337 Bluetooth 2.1 speaker system I was keen to try. My only concern was the low price. Does this mean that the sound would also be low end?

Let’s hear and find out.

Avantree Audition - Wireless Audio

Read more: Avantree Audition - Wireless AudioEar-buds and headphones, all of us must have at least one of these lying around. Think of all those absolutely awful ear-buds that were once bundled with every phone for a while. iPhone users would still get them, yes they are white, and no they are not great. There are plenty of alternatives ranging from affordable to house mortgage range - Sennheiser, Denon, Bose, Beats just to name a few, but Avantree? This one is new to me so I put my hand up when MobileFun offered to send a set my way. Thanks guys!

Disclosure time, I am not an audiophile. More accurately I am not an audio fanatic. I am surrounded by them all my life and have an appreciation for good gear and pure sound, it is just that instead of spending my money on some serious sound gear at home or in my car, I use the money to travel and indulge in my other just as expensive hobbies. My taste in music is eclectic enough to be a challenge for any headphones to deliver quality sound across the range - from classical to heavy metal depending on my mood.

Wireless speakers are all the rage: just visit your local Harvey Norman or similar store and there is plenty of choice.

Today we are testing the biggest sibling in this range from Ultimate Ears, the Megaboom.
It is arguably one of the better Bluetooth speakers around and it is not unreasonably priced either.
(Officially well over the $300 mark but online as low as AUD255).

Let’s have a look and listen.
