The tiny X300 delivers powerful, room-filling sound in a well-made, versatile form factor. The price of RM 260 might seem a little bit too pricey. You can get more power and more bass if you’re willing to spend more money, but for the price, the Logitech X300 is definitely well worthy compared to other brands. The Logitech X300 is covered with textured rubber that ensures that the speaker doesn't slip on any surface no matter its orientation. It seems really suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The top of this speaker is the home for most of the controls including volume and a Bluetooth buttons. There's also a not so obvious Power button located behind the X300. Across the power button, there's also 3.5 mm Aux and a Micro USB port for charging.
The Logitech X300 estimates up to five hours of battery life per charge with a standard Micro USB cable. The number depends highly on volume or whether you use Bluetooth, but it's average for this size of speaker.
To pair the speaker, simply hold the Bluetooth button located on the top edge for few seconds. A light below the Power Button will start to flash until you've paired the speaker with another device, after it will turn solid. I had no trouble pairing my iPod at all.
For its size, the X300 packs a pretty impressive performance. It's easily loud enough to fill an entire room with sound, which you can't say for every speaker in this price range. Even on tracks with heavy sub-bass or soft and romantic sort of songs.
On less intense tracks, like Lego house by Ed Sheeran, the X300 strikes an impressive balance that offers just the right amount of bass to add depth and warmth while allowing the mids and highs to remain clear. Still, this isn't really a speaker for lovers of truly heavy bass.
Another nice feature is the versatile design, which allows you to listen to music with the speaker sitting horizontal, or propped up vertically on either side.
Although the speaker has an interesting, angular shape, it stands up fine no matter how you position it. It's convenient if you're trying to fit in on a crowded shelf. And because the two drivers sit so close together, I didn't find an appreciable difference in sound quality with the speaker in either position.
The X300 also has a built-in speakerphone, which is good for when you're listening to music from your phone and don't want to miss a call. Call quality was solid on both ends in testing.
For the price, the Logitech X300 is hard to beat. Yes, you can find Bluetooth speakers out there for even less, but neither delivers anywhere near the sound quality of the X300. The So if you're looking for a powerful, portable Bluetooth speaker on a budget, the Logitech X300 is our top pick.
