Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod

At a Glance
  • Logitech Wireless Music System for iPod

Logitech's Wireless Music System for iPod is a welcome addition to the iPod accessory market, bringing the benefits of Bluetooth iPod-to-stereo connections to owners of all iPods -- as well as any other device with a standard headphone minijack. You get static-free audio transmission with excellent range, even through walls, and simple plug-and-play setup. On the other hand, the Wireless Music System falls short of Belkin's competing TuneStage in several areas; which you should choose depends largely on which iPod you've got.
