Sound Quality: Logitech Z407 or Logitech Z623
The Logitech Z407 has an impressive sound quality due to its extraordinarily high-volume level which are a plus as it’s relatively compact and affordable. In order to prevent distortion at high levels, the digital signal processing flattens the dynamics a little bit. On sub-bass content, at high level of volume the subwoofer is at the edges of distortion. However, it is a rarely affordable speaker system so it is expected to have some limitation. The audio overall is very well balanced, rich, crisp and bright. The subwoofer only causes little distortion with sub-bass content but with other content Z407 delivers its most balanced and the digital signal processing is triggered less.
But for the Logitech Z623, it’s all about the bass as the subwoofer is absolutely massive and has more than half of the RMS power rating. It has the power capacity of 130W and this proves that the bass is meant to be impressive. According to the RMS power rating each satellite is 35W, which means the music is not exactly going to be crisp. It may be a problem if you’re planning on listening to classical music. The Logitech Z634 will definitely serve your needs and make everything sound perfect if you want to crank up the volume to your favorite hip-hop and metal genre. However, sadly you won’t be able to enjoy the classical genre without making it sound a little ‘muddy’. But the Logitech Z632 is favored for watching movies or playing games than actually listening to music as it enhances the experience more.
Both, Z407 and Z623 have flaws but it is expected however the Logitech Z407 has better sound quality but that’s because the Z623 is not suitable for listening to music. It’s made for movie lovers and gamers.
Features: Logitech Z407 or Logitech Z623
For the features battle, the Logitech Z407 speakers can be connected to the back panel of the subwoofer with the semi-hardwired RCA-style cabling.

It can easily connect to any PC or other devices with a 3.5mm jack or through Bluetooth. The remote even has a Bluetooth pairing button and a button to switch between Bluetooth and other wired sources.
Meanwhile, the Logitech Z623 has only one downside which is that it has no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi streaming and is a wired only speaker system. It has two inputs, the 3.5mm headphone jack and RCA and there is no other way to switch between these two inputs. The volume knob and the bass knobs are located on the right speaker. On the side of the right satellite, you can also find the headphone output and an aux input. The two inputs make it easy to plug in up to 3 audio devices. It is compatible with DVD players, music players, mobile phones, tablets, television set, Xbox, PlayStation or any other gaming console. Basically, it can work with any device with a head phone jack.
