This week, Logitech announced its Logitech UE lineup, with seven new products including earphones, headphones, wireless speakers and a smart radio. To celebrate this announcement, we hosted an event and concert with Frances Cone and Milo Greene at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The news caught the attention of a number of outlets, including CNET, Mashable, Sound + Vision, WIRED and ZDNet, along with Cool Hunting, HypeBeast and Acquire. In particular, we really enjoyed a quote in the WIRED article, from Sarah Pinault who said, “With Ultimate Ears’ passion for changing the way you listen to music, and Logitech’s drive to connect people through technology, this innovative duo has been producing top quality products for both home and professional use since 2008.”
The Logitech UE news also made headlines on a variety of international outlets, such as Diskidee in Belgium, Android World in the Netherlands, Gagadget in Ukraine and Computerbild in Germany.
We also saw the first wave of product reviews appear. For example, Justin Yu with CNET reviewed the new Logitech UE Boombox, which received four out of five stars. He highlighted the speaker’s design, “easy-to-use Bluetooth connection,” and “impressive sound output.” Overall, it was a big week for us. Stay tuned for additional Logitech UE highlights.
Also this week, Rosa Golijan at NBC News posted a video review of the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310. She called it, “… one of the most useful computer accessories around,” and claimed that it’s ready to survive, “… whatever dangers you expose it to,” including spilled beverages, mustard-covered fingers, ketchup stains and even chocolate syrup. Rosa really put the keyboard to the test, so be sure to check out the full video, here. Additionally, Andy Baryer of GetConnected, a syndicated Canadian TV show, featured the keyboard on their weekly “Tech Talk” segment, highlighting the keyboard’s ability to be submerged in up to 30cm of water and its affordable price point.
