These are AWESOME speakers. I am perfectly satisfied with the sound, especially for the price. i got them for 85 new from amazon.com. The batteries last a long time, and the blue lights are really cool. they fold up very small and have a protective plastic snap on "thing". they also come with some great cords. if you don't have portable speakers and don't want to spend too much, i would definetly get these.

Doohh! I wish I had seen this before I bought my inMotion3. I primarily use my IM3 for outdoor use to spice up our weekend ultimate game. The sound does distort alot with the IM3, so the iStation may have been a better buy. Hopefully I can find it for cheap here in Japan, and sell my iM3's.

Hmmm, it seems like a toss-up between the inMotions and these. I'll have a hard time deciding...

They're just so cheesy looking though...

These are great! Ive had this for 6 motnhs and they still sound as good as new! The main reason why I bought this is because you can dock a iskinned ipod onto it...something all the other speakers are unable to do

I just picked these up today at Microcenter for $100.00 ... I didn't want to spend almost $200.00 for the IM3s and I am more than pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Logic3. I test drove these in the store next to the original inMotions and got too much distortion with the inMotions at higher volumes. These at higher volumes (I like my music loud) sounded great to my ears. If you can snag these at Amazon.com now for the $80.00 plus free ship, go for it. Great buy IMO.

Also, as a side note though, I didn't get all the iPod adapters iPodlounge got (the seven they got). I only got 3 (universal adapter, mini adapter and 40GB adapter). I must have an older model or something ...

"Cheesy" is a subject assertation, at best. Like beauty, it is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to like the design and there are many very good positive user comments here. I'm going to pick up a set from Amazon. At $80, you really can't go wrong.

As for static on a bus (it's spelled with one "s", btw), it could either be a problem with your friend's set or it could be a problem with bad shielding on the bus' electrical system that caused the intereference. I've heard that kind of static, like you, even when the bus is NOT in motion on other audio electronics while riding city buses in town. This is not an uncommon problem with vehicle like that. Besides, on a bus, you would be better served using your headphones and a splitter if the two of you want to share the music, rather than over speakers on a bus. I don't think playing your music on a bus over speakers is such a good idea.

where is the RF remote?? smile come on guys!

Posted by christomapher on February 21, 2005 at 6:53 PM (PDT) Comment 10

Hey is it just me or does it look exactly like the Sonicgear G2000 Speakers....and i mean EXACTLY...even the blue lights!

Posted by Vinod on February 21, 2005 at 7:24 PM (PDT) Comment 11

Or is it the same company but they just call their speakers different names in different countries? Could anyone please clarify? I have been using Sonicgear G2000 speakers for 2 months now and i am satisfied with the performance although it dosent reduce noise/distortion at higher volume levels. Also the the bass could be boosted a little more.

Posted by Vinod on February 21, 2005 at 7:33 PM (PDT) Comment 12

And i agree with christomapher....a RF remote would have been cool. It would deinitely beat running to the unit to reduce the volume everytime my neighbour bangs on my door to complain! smile

Posted by Vinod on February 21, 2005 at 7:37 PM (PDT) Comment 13

Vinod, it's a generic product manufactured most likely in China, and companies just slap their company name and/or logo on it.

Check out the distributors lists in China, and other parts of Asia by using Google..

In fact, here's a sample:

This link

They're a smaller list.. there are other bigger ones.. which I can't remember at the moment. When I was researching where to get just the speaker components, I found a lot of manufacturers that make these kinds of speakers, and I even found one that most likely makes the inside component that's used in these, and other identical speakers with different names.

thanks for fixing that link.. it made the page way too wide.. smile

Posted by Kloan on February 21, 2005 at 10:52 PM (PDT) Comment 15

Kloan, you could be right but I think it's probably more the case where this design is made for the Logic3 brand (it's U.K., I think) somewhere in Asia, and the actual manufacturer there is selling their own version out the back door, or relabeling them under their own brand name for other markets not serviced by the client they originally made them for. I've seen a number Chinese manufacturers do this with other types of consumer goods as well (toys in particular).

Sam's Club Online also sells this setup for a bit under $80. Another cheaper option if you don't mind giving Wal*Mart the money.

This looksl ike a great product... I am with the other posters. Where is the RF remote functionality? It would be a great product for for the price with RF Remote functionality.

I have ruled out the inMotionM3, just to expensive and I keep hearing that the remote function is not reliable...

Peace

Won a set of these from NME. God bless them (I now have a dock, since my 4G didn't come with one).

Just as a few notes, you don't need to power the speakers if using USB to connect to your pc (not sure bout firewire, I'm still waiting to get my firewire wire back from my bro to find out).

Oh, and when turned on, with ipod docked, the speakers emit a small, unless you're in silence you'll notice it, hum. But this turns off after a while. This means I now have an Ipod alarm clock.

Bonus, and all for a great, cheap price. Well recommended

when i use my sleep function on my ipod (to set it to turn off in 30 minutes) it kinda makes a quiet thumping noise after the music turns off. does anyone know what this is? besides that, the sound is great.

Posted by deepshallows on February 22, 2005 at 2:47 PM (PDT) Comment 19

it looklike a knockoff of the imotion dosen't it?

Posted by robot 12-34 on February 22, 2005 at 5:44 PM (PDT) Comment 20

Question. Is there an Audio Out (or headphone) jack on the system? I have a set of remote speakers in my studio which I plug my iPod into now. I'd love to be able to just set it on the dock without having to plug in an extra cord to the iPod... Does the inMotion system have the Audio Out (or Headphone) jack?

Posted by lancephoto on February 22, 2005 at 8:27 PM (PDT) Comment 21

deepshallows- did you read the review on this page?

robot- there is no audio output for both the Logic3 and the inMotion series. They both have audio inputs which is great if you use them for other things besides the iPod.

to everyone else- i purchased these speakers because the remote control with the inMotion3 that i have is basically USELESS. the only buttons that work maybe 1 out of 20 trys, are the play/pause and the volume UP button. so i basically came to the conclusion that since the inMotion3 remote barely even works, it won't really be a downgrade to go to these Logic3 speakers. i am waiting for them to arrive still....

Posted by christomapher on February 23, 2005 at 8:12 PM (PDT) Comment 22

oops! that first response was supposed to be for ROBOT

the second response was supposed to be for lancephoto

my mistake wink

Posted by christomapher on February 23, 2005 at 8:15 PM (PDT) Comment 23

by the way I took a look at the inMotion (not 3) yesterday at Best Buy and it does have a line out jack. I guess the Logic3 doesn't though?

Posted by lancephoto on February 24, 2005 at 7:43 AM (PDT) Comment 24

UPDATE: I had posted sbove that I got the Logic3 speakers that didn't have the iPod Photo cradles as I must have gotten older stock made before the Photo came out. I emailed Logic3 in Europe and, within two days, I got an email from EB Carlson Company (I believe they are the marketing company for these speakers in the US), and he sent out the iPod Photo cradle to me free of charge. Great customer service! Best, Pam smile
