Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Obsidian Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : what a dissapointment

I’ve tried loads of portable speakers over the years ie bose jambox sony etc but none are remotely as good as these. . Superb soundloud ( not distorted )easy to charge with the bright yellow charger includedvery quick and efficient bluetooth pairingwater resistant so ok fo the bathroomgreat build qualitygreat colorscan form a stereo pair if you have 2.

Recently attended a retreat where more than half the teachers were using ultimate ears speakers, with the boom 2 leading the way. Perfect for background music for work place or classes, as well as for social events – especially in party mode. The concept of having up to 150 of these units all synced together is incredible, and i’d love to see how it would work in a real world situation. Once you update the firmware on the speaker, you get great battery life, great sound and easy use with multiple devices. People keep asking me about it and where they can get one, so it sells itself. The waterproof feature is ideal for poolside, or for outdoor work. Mine has been rained on and covered in mud, and still works perfectly.

Sound: quality, good bass with a nice, enriched sound. I’ve heard speakers that can get louder, but really this gets as loud as you need to it be. Granted, i use this mainly for indoor use and less so for outdoor parties. Design: while it has a stripped back, simplistic design, it has clearly been made with a ‘function over aesthetic’ mindset. As a result, expect a barely noticeable cylinder of a speaker that performs well and is as durable as such a simple design implies; this speaker, as well as having waterproof capabilities, can endure more than a few tumbles down the stairs. App: the app compliments the speaker well, while it doesn’t add much to the speaker in terms of functionality, it is useful to be able to turn on the speaker without actually having to go up to it and pressing the on button, and it is also useful for showing the battery percentage. Battery life: the battery lasts a decent amount of time, though a little longer wouldn’t have hurt. One gripe i have, though minor, is that while you can play the speaker while charging, you cannot if you begin charging it from dead, and it seems quite a long while until you pass this point. Wanting to belt some music and hearing, ‘charging, please wait,’ in the voice of a robotic female that is trying her best, is a little anti-climactic. Overall, a great purchase, and one that i am very glad i made.

Like all the reviews below say. . I’ve had 2 really good bluetooth speakers and they’ve finally expired. Read the reviews on amazon and online, all of which pointed to the boom2. I’ve learned that running your speaker in for a couple of hours isn’t a myth and it really does improve the range and especially the bass. 4 hours in, it’s everything the other reviews said it was. Amazing volume without distortion. Uncanny 360 degree sound which is hard to believe. Dithering and second guessing about a purchase is fault of mine.

For a single, standalone speaker, the sound quality of this speaker is surprisingly good. Volume can be turned up so that it is very loud, without “vibrating”, which is ideal for certain outdoor situations. I haven’t had it out when it is raining as it doesn’t look like it would resist a lot of water, so i can’t comment on its water resistance. A fully recharged battery lasts for up to ~6 hours. You can download an app so you can control it from your phone. I don’t think that you can control it in a similar way from your computer although i stand to be corrected.

I bought this boom 2 product together with a tronsmart t6, also from amazon. The boom 2 costs twice as much as the t6. The boom 2 is smaller and waterproof but the tronsmart has more and easier-to-use controls. The boom 2 is also more robust. Ultimately what it comes down to, and the main purpose of the device is sound. It’s hugely different – both devices seem clear to my ear, though i’m not an expert on fidelity ( ed : too right. Just ask his wife) but the tronsmart t6 produces much more bass without obliterating the treble and mid range. The boom 2 is good – nice and loud but the bass on the t6 is just so much more satisfyinglarger room.

After reading all the reviews i have to say i am somewhat disappointed with this speaker. Yes it has good clarity of sound but the bass is non existent. I have sonos speakers in the house so i compared it to the sonos 1. Unfortunately the sonos 1 blew it out water, there was no comparrison to be had, the sonos was superior in every way, clarity, bass, volume. These two speakers are similarly priced. I also compared it to the bose soundlink and again i felt i had the inferior product, there is just so much more bass with the bose. If i could, i would have returned it and bought the bose. I have no idea why other reviewers think this is so good. I bought this speaker at half its rrp and still feel disappointed, i’d have been gutted if id paid full price.

The quality is fantastic ( i have a lot of bose stuff and it keeps up when you are comparing like with like- ie price range and speaker configuration). It is robust, easy to use and connect, high quality manufacturing. The negative reviews seem to be about either defectively made products or the app. Both have worked well for me, after nearly a month of constant use. I leave my music source upstairs and it works throughout the house, even with thick granite walls. And the sound stays together even at the highest volumes. Go ahead, you will love it, a real 5 star product if ever i bought one.

I live on a boat so the waterproof feature was a huge selling point for me. I haven’t dropped it in yet but have cruised in heavy rain and not had any problems. The sound quality is great and the battery lasts a very long time. The bluetooth works a treat i hook it up to both my phone, and laptop when i’m watching movies. People have mentioned that it’s a bit chunky, and it is. It has a feeling of real quality to it. It’s clearly very well made. I’ve had my ue boom for quite a few months now and it’s been bashed around a fair bit and carried around in backpacks many times and it still looks great.

Cheaper than the special edition ones being sold in john lewis on black friday for £95. Quick delivery, great sound for all of the types of music i have. Sleek design though you have to lay the speaker on its side to charge it via cable and wall plug. Comes 40% charged and charges up fully very quickly. App is a bit rubbish though that isn’t the seller’s responsibility, however, something buyers should be aware of. My main speakers are bose and this is a fantastic travel speaker.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker Waterproof : Great sound and easy connectivity.

Bought this speaker as girf and it’s not the first one i get from the ue product. I got a boom2 for myself and bought a roll 2 for one of my friends. All of the ue speakers are great quality ones; their sound is really really good and they are super resistant. I would suggest this products to everyone who want to enjoy music everywhere.

The 360-degrees sound is amazing, the clarity is astounding, and the build quality is unrivalled. Mine legit got punched off a table and landed on a hard floor on the first day of me having it, and there wasn’t a scratch. It feels sturdy and solid, definitely like something worth the price tag. The tactile feel of the buttons has improved a little, especially on the top of the device, but the volume buttons do need a little extra force to be pressed (and right in the centre too). The volume of the device is pretty loud. Even in parties or pre-drinks i never really set it above half volume, or it gets too loud. However, the sound can distort at the highest volume levels, *although*, this may just be a software or external hardware issue due to drivers or the media being played itself. I myself did not notice it at all until i was watching a movie with it.

Excellent sound for holiday tunes. A bit heavier than expected but not an issue for me. Sound was excellent and extremely easy to connect to my bluetooth devices.

Great sound , i’m not going into technical details here but for the money they give a good tone, pitch and bass; better than i expected.

Omghow can this powerful huge sound can come out of this small thing . I bought this for bathroom and i’m totally in love with it now. It would be waste to use it in bathroom only as it is great for living room toogreat quality great design.

Can’t praise this product enough. We had previously bought the single speaker and have used them with great success. I bought these as a present and the recipient is absolutely thrilled ( which doesn’t happen often).

Looked around for a while on what to buy, settled on this and it genuinely blew me away. I don’t have a real comparison to make, but i was really impressed at how full the sound was out of one speaker unit. The volume fills a room, the styling is great and it connects to a single phone really well. (avoid trying two phones, its gets messy).

I tested this against the anker soundcore motion q – similar size and power, but £20 cheaper than the wonderboom. I tested them side by side to get a true comparison. The result: the wonderboom lives up to its name. Deeper bass, brighter treble, more presence, detail and sparkle. By comparison, the motion q was flatter and a bit muddier. Just not as lively and without the bass depth of the wonderboom. In this case, you get what you pay for. But if you’re willing to pay a little extra for the wonderboom, you get the jump in performance. It won’t shake your fillings out, but for its size (slightly stubbier than a can of soup) the bass has plenty of oomph.

Bought this speaker to go on holiday and because it was waterproof. Definitely waterproof as i threw it in the pool to test and it passed. Although struggled to listen to it underwater :p. Sound quality is good considering the size and it gets to a decent volume. The fact that you can double up speakers is a nice touch. I think the bigger speakers will have better sound but obviously there’s added size and expense. Charging via usb is handy and convenient. Battery life is pretty good seems a good 6 hours at leastoverall a nice speaker and good value.

I’m a bit of a music junky and like a full ‘traditional’ sound – so i hate tiney speakrs that sound tinny. I have two and can pair them so i can have in kitchen and garden. Battery life is brillian – had them both on all day at the weekend, and still had battery for the next day. Can’t fault these at all for the price.

Bought this on recommendation of my son and daughter-in-law for a garden barbecue. Small and portable, the sound quality is incredible – deep basses and clear tones – and remains connected to bluetooth several metres away from my ipad.

5 stars as the bluetooth connection dropped a few times, connecting to the yaufey projector. Its certainly possible that its all the projector’s fault, and seems fine after the first couple of disconnects. Sound quality for a speaker of this size is excellent, and the dimensions are perfect for travel.

Decent bluetooth speaker, bought on black friday when it was £50, i don’t think it’s worth the usual price. Nice and portable, fun looking speaker, the waterproof feature is great, ideal shower or travel speaker. Don’t buy this to use at home to fill a room with sound, it’s not good enough for that and there are better options out there, my sonos play 1 – although twice as big and twice the price – sounds a hundred times better than this. This is a great speaker if you use it for it’s intended purpose.

I am so pleased with this little bomb. It sounds great, is so hardy, and so compact and user friendly. Our house would be lost without it. We took it on holiday, on a boating holiday etc, and it was great for us all to listen to some music, the children to listen to audible book etc. My son tested in the water and that seemed to work, but i will not be trying to replicate that. But it is good to know that if i use it in the bathroom and it gets a little wet, it will still go on. The sound quality is great for me, and my husband agrees, especially for the money, but then we are not huge sound fanatics.

I was well pleased with the sound of this. I think the sound is very good. My only negative is that because i use it for sleepsounds/music when falling asleep the lowest volume is still a bit too loud. Also the on/off sound it makes is stupidly loud and when the music has stopped and the speaker eventually turn itself off it wakes me up quite violently. However for daytime listening whilst getting ready and putting makeup on, as well as listening in the bath, it is really great.

Wow, what a great sound from such a small speaker. Not only does this speaker look good but sounds fantastic. It’s easy to use, has simple instructions and is good to go on delivery. Not only is it party portable, but you can actually chuck into the bath water with you. I got as our bathroom gets really steamy on showering and previous water resistant speakers just don’t cut it. Get one now before they run out at christmas.

I bought this pair during an amazon lightning deal, and so was a great price. The speakers sound nice, and are well made. The only reason they get 4 stars and not 5, is because they don’t play in stereo when you connect the pair together.

The audio is crisp and very clear. However, in the packaging the instructions weren’t very clear and they were very limited. Also, when i try to press the button on top to change the song, it may take me more than one press. Other than that, it is an amazing device and i recommend it to everyone. I’ve used it for a month now and, in comparison to other speaker, it is without a doubt the dominant one.

Very pleased with this set of 2 speakers which i bought on amazon’s deal of the day for a bargain £79. My only criticism is that they are a little too much on high end (treble), but otherwise they deliver a very decent sound with clear vocals and decent bass. Pairing both was straight forward, but if you struggle there are several instructional videos on you tube. Even at their rrp, these are a good buy and don’t disappoint.

Great sound particularly when put into stereo, easy to chuck in a bag and take away and charge holds really well. Customer service were really helpful when i was having difficulty pairing, but was my mistake as i was pressing the wrong set of buttons.

I’ve had this device since for 10 months now and overall i’m really impressed with their battery life and the durability of them. Admittedly the sound quality isn’t those of a higher end speaker (i. Bose/sonnos) but there’s honestly nothing wrong with it for someone after a robust speaker to take to the beach or have in the shower. My only disliking is the control of sound isn’t amazing but this shouldn’t put you off.

Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker : Fantastic for the price

Fast delivery and an amazing product. Charges very fast, belts out bass and clear mid-high range tones without loss, and best of all it’s portable.

These are really good they are water resistant and give out a great sound you won’t be disappointed.

Works well indoors but better outdoors. Can also pair with other ue speakers and the remote app is genuinely useful (turn speaker on/off and fiddle with the equaliser settings). Goes surprisingly loud but bass can tail off.

Best wireless speaker i’ve ever owned. Volume is ideal for beach, bbqs, parties. I couldn’t be without my 2 now.

  • Great in every aspect. Read review for details.
  • Loud but not that punchy for the size as it distorts at high volume, forget pairing 2 for stereo with video but good for music.
  • Flat sound, weak bass!

Wonderful sound, i use it on my boat, after using i just wash it under the tap to remove the salt water, now over a year off using it this way, still works very well as new. Ps it gets very wet when out on the boat. A great sound and is very loud. Great bass at the same time sounds very clear.

Battery is great and the speaker is extremely well built so can just be thrown in a bag. One critisism is the software and widespread battery problems which seem to be fixed with software updates.

Feels hefty and solidly made. This is the first i’ve had of this type of speaker: so can’t make a comparative assessment.

I’ve been through so many portable speakers and they’re never loud enough, there’s never enough bass and they never last very long. I gave up after a while with portable speakers and then ultimate ears came along. Everything about it – the sound, the design, the shape and size. I really do love my ue speaker. I was reluctant because of the price but it’s truly worth every penny. Side note – i’ve dropped my speaker on the beach before and all i had to do was brush the sand off wth my hand and it was like it never happened. Very robusti can’t think of any downsides to the speaker. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this brand as it is always good to have a brand you can rely on.

Great looking speaker, it worked really well for around a week then the charging cable broke and then the sound quality started to deteriorate. It’s going back, hopefully i just had a rogue one.

Ue megaboom, 2 speakers, lag present ( on ios ) when in stereo mode bluetooth with 2 speakers with latest firmware as of dec 2017 ( tried older firmware 1. 71 and lag was reduced i think but still too annoying, but it had other issues and bugs and features missing ), it feels a tiny bit laggy with just one speaker but two is impossible to watch video, i think i’ll have to wait for portable airplay 2. 0 devices to come out for this to really work, does any brand support 2 wireless portable speakers in stereo without lag in video?.I mean i expect lag but airplay does a sync so the video delays itself by the same amount making it all appear in sync. So don’t expect to play video with 2 speakers in sync, but then i don’t think any wireless solution exists for this at this time. Sound quality, good but not great but then are any at this size?. They handle 50% volume fine but higher and it distorts – sure to have weaker bass i can accept but to distort so badly is a flaw imo and it should be calibrated to tail off the bass if it cannot handle it, maybe you like your music distorted and just loud though??, maybe that is expecting too much but even with 2 devices they don’t quite get where i want them for music with any kind of punch, the bass at lower volumes doesn’t distort but then is relatively weak unless the speakers are strategically placed in echoey locations say corners of rooms. Design, nice style and soft touch material, cannot plug in external audio or charger without turning device upside down though.

It is large compared to other bluetooth speakers and produces a good quality sound however i would not reccommend paying the price its listed at as its slightly overpriced. Yes its durable but i found the battery life runs out alot quicker than listed and takes a long time to charge. Overall though i was pleased with the product so i rated it 3 out of 5 stars.

I did almost a month research before buying this product. Crystal clear sound, fabulous battery backup, shockproof, well designed.

Bought for a choir to play backing tracks to rehearse with, plus possibly the occasional performance. Did my research and am pleased it ticks all the boxes. If anything i’d like it to be louder. Purple colour is awesome as matches our choir branding :-).

For the price, getting a waterproof, shockproof speaker that produces great sound at all ranges and produces great volume even in a packed room. The function that you can pair with other devices is fa tasting for parties and the app is easy to use. Only down side is that when high volume the bass struggles to keep up. However this happens with most sub £300 speakers.

Have had this product for a few weeks now and i am loving it. It’s got a great sound stage, clear vocalls, good highs and mids and an above average lows ( bass ). Huge battery, water proof, long bluetooth connection range. Works amazingly well with the ue megaboom app and and all round brilliant speaker .

Great sound, nearly all the frequencies are there and nicely balanced. The sound only falters at super high volumes, but if you keep it below these levels (still plenty loud enough) you will be most impressed with the sound from these. Battery life is great, you won’t get 20 hours if you’re pushing them hard, maybe 8 or 9, but that’s still pretty good. And best of all they come with a no-quibble 2 year warranty. Mine developed a charging fault where it wouldn’t accept charge, a known issue on early models, but they sent a new one out very quickly, didn’t even want the old one back. Great purchase, mate of mine has two and i might do the same one day. Can’t go wrong with these, awesome speakers.

Just received the product today. It’s great when it s paired to a phone. However when it s paired to my pc (w7), the volume is much lower. I cant reach the same volume with my pc. I ve reinstalled the bluetooth driver, put to 100% , still the volume is lower than when it s paired to a phone. I ve tested on others pc, same issue. Does anybody encounter this problem ?.

Excellent sound and clear quite impressed what comes out of that box classical to rok piano anything comes out great. I am impressed so far got 2 months now works perfect.

I love this speaker, which brings music to where you want it. Good volume, battery lasts about 5 hours, maybe a bit more, and sounds good. If buying again i would go for the ones with amazon alexa capability though.

Very recently bought the monitor audio, which is good but doesn’t mooooove me. Read some reviews, took a punt. This device is another league. Equally happy with scarlatti or electroswing.

Not as loud as i wanted for outdoors. Has about a 20 foot range of sound outdoor. Great sound and easy link up.

Brilliant sound from this little speaker. Shockingly good quality and capable of being very loud – with no distortion. Build quality is also superb. The app also works great – in fact everything works greatunfortunately my unit became faulty after a few months, however. I contacted ue who guided me through some reset procedures, but after this failed was advised to send it back for a replacement. Amazon did so with absolutely no quibble. I was seriously impressed by this – especially as the replacement arrived the next day – before i’d even sent the faulty one backvery minimal inconvenience.

Ultimate Ears 984-000666 ROLL 2 Bluetooth Speaker Ultraportable : The whole package has been thought out so that it is really easy to use all the features

Bought as a gift and enthusiastically received. I understand that it’s a great accessory for a walk, cycle ride or just to sit beside you while fishing. Excellent quality sound for such a small product.

Incredible sound from such a small and relatively cheap speaker. I bought this to use inside my shower cubicle and it doesn’t disappoint. Took seconds to pair and work out how to use it. If you want a speaker that allows you to skip tracks then this isn’t for you, but if you’ve got your playlists preset then what are you waiting for?.

Good producttip: hold volume up and down at the same time for a few secs and the speaker will tell u the remaining battery.

Bought one for my daughter in august 2016 (23 months ago) it has been around the world with her. Australia, thailand, cambodia and new zealand and it still works perfectly. I asked her if she wanted a new one as she goes back to nz in a few weeks and she just asked “why?.Someone who doesn’t want something for free. So she loves her roll, it goes everywhere with her and works as perfectly today as the day she got it and it has done about 30,000 miles. . It has covered dozens of ad hoc parties that i’d rather not know about along with hiking, camping and long drives into the back of beyond. It just looks a little grubby, but that is hardly anybody else’s fault.

Ok you’re not gonna get any amazing bassy tones simply due to the size of this thing but everything else about it is brilliant. I couldn’t believe how loud it can go for such a small device.

Bought this for 60 quid and for that money, this is a travel speaker without rival. Hooked up to my ipod classic (which does not have bluetooth) it gives decent high end detail and surprisingly good bass which maintains control. It’s a stunning piece of kit.

I still cannot believe the sound that comes from such a small device. The whole package has been thought out so that it is really easy to use all the features. I was so impressed with the first one i bought that i ordered another so that they could be linked together using the double up facility. Now i am lost for words to describe just how good they are. People that i show them to can’t believe what they are hearing either.

Bought two, one for each of my twenty something boys (no, they won’t leave the parental home). They use them when having a shower and getting ready to go out. The quality is great, i know because they have it blasting out, but good feedback from both guysas well. I got them at a discount price as well. I also got my soundbar back.

Got it to listen to music at work when on down time. Its a loud environment but the speaker is loud enough that it can be heard if you are within 20 meters at least, maybe more but i didnt measure. The only downside is the battery life. I was under the impression you could get up to 10 hours, however after about 4 and a half it died. This was after a 10-12 hour overnight charge. Luckily you can still play it while it’s plugged in to the mains as long as it has a little juice in it to get it started so i did this, however myself or other may not always have access to socket so it might be worth picking up a cheap battery bank and keeping that along side it, which is what i may do if i find a decent waterproof one.

Believe the hype – portable, easy to use, looks good and the sound [in terms of quality and loudness] is really great. Just about to buy one of these for me dad as well, great portable bluetooth speaker.

Bought this for my son to improve the audio from his phone & laptop. Surprised at how loud and clear the output is from such a small speaker. Feels quite robust, and i’m sure my son will test that quality over time. More expensive than some other speakers, but for the size, bluetooth range and sound quality it’s worth paying a bit more.

Amazing speaker, great for vacation or to have it in your shower. Would buy another to have stereo. Cons: can’t skip songs, only change volume.

We were going to buy a sound system for our boat, but instead we bought a 2nd eu roll to pair up for better stereo sound. They are neat, funky colours and portable & give very good sound, especially if placed on a wooden surface. It is so handy to just control all your music from your iphone. The eu app is great for adjusting balance & bass too. Once charged from the usb the battery lasts about 7 hours.

Had this a few months now and thoroughly impressed. Great sound, long battery life, easy to use, robust and funky looking. It does indeed work in the pool (in the inflatable ring provided, i didn’t test the claim that it can survive for 30mins underwater). Genuinely great piece of kit and, inexpensive compared to many.

Honestly a little disappointed with it. When it works, it works great, however moving it around will cause some loosing signal at a certain distance. Getting it to connect to my computer and what is plays is also a little annoying as i have to close itunes and re-open it after connecting so that it’ll play what’s playing on itunes (this seems more of an itunes issue than the speaker though). It’s also annoying not to include a pause/skip/back buttons on the speaker too. Otherwise, it’s ok and the sound quality is decent though.

For a small size speaker (smaller than a hand span), the quality of sound is excellent. Have listened to all genres: current hits with fab bass, classical, choral, big band, jazz, piano and organ music (amazing) and quality is clear, surrounding and not tinny. It comes with a clip to attach to handle or curtains. Volume is high enough to fill a room with loudness without distortion. Quality good when volume is lower. It’s excellent for travel or time away from home speakers, in the garden/park etc.

So not one to write reviews, but this little beauty deserves it. I checked which reviews and this one had the highest rating of any protable / bluetooth speaker. This and the price tempted me to get one to try and wow. . Firstly the ‘setup’ is ridiculously easy. I purchased other more expensive bluetooth speakers and had problems. I was so impressed with one that i bought a second as i saw the option to pair them both via the mobile app. It’s a double wow for the second one in ease of use in getting them paired up and the sound from both of them in the room is great.

Easy to use and sync to your devices. Easy to charge and get decent life out of each charge. Utilised mostly in the shower and has taken well to being used in steamed up shower and to the occasional bit of water splash. It can be a pain to take over when someone else is using their device synced to it but aside from that i’d say its a good product. It can also be very loud and i don’t think i use even 40% of the volume capacity.

Where have you been my whole life. Haven’t tested the waterproof feature yet but bought next day delivery for a summer bbq and everyone was super impressed (including me).

I keep this in my room and i can still hear it in the kitchen which is some distance away. Good for personal use but i can see it being drowned out with a large number of guests.

The sound quality is amazing. It paired really quickly with iphone. It took ages to pair with ipad – hold down the on off button on ue together with volume down button, this returns it to factory settings then it immediately worked.

The sound is just how i wanted it – no strong bass or treble, but balance mid-range. It’s lighter and smaller, and more seemingly more hard-wearing than i anticipated. It’s predecessor with me was the jbl clip, which is also good product.

Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Wireless/Bluetooth Speaker : Brilliant speaker, beautiful sound quality.

Great sound quality, easy to transport and doesn’t look out of place sitting in the table or cabinet in living room.

I am using it for my beauty room. I like the colours and the sound is high quality. I tried it under the shower and it works, definitely is waterproof.

Great little speaker really clear.

Excellent sound quality, easy to use.

  • No longer supports Alexa or alarms

Great sound, it can be paired with an other one (that’s what i do) and it makes a very very nice full sound across all room. Even when you use it alone sound is very round and good. Good battery life, and very resistant i always bring it along with me on holiday.

This is the second of these, love them and now we can pair them too. Great quality sound, very easy to use & charge.

Very good haven’t found a fault with it.

Excellent sound and build quality.

Absolutely fantastic – a wonderful speaker that delivers – 5+ stars.

I searched online and discovered that this is the number best rated bluetooth speaker, and it lives up to that. It’s quality is superb, sound is fantastic. It is also shock proof and able to be used in bathroom/shower, but not totally waterproof. I highly recommend this and i read that it is better than the echo and cheaper too.

Superdooper sound loader than the bose soundlink which i sent back. Cheaper so good infact i bought another,i love the twins over 10 hours play time on a charge the bose had 3 on full power, definitely recommend this lump.

High quality sound and volume.

So far very happy with this purchase.

Range on the speakers seems to be extremely large. Unaffected by walls in a rather old house.

I was blown away by the quality of these speakers. From the packaging to the accessories to the speakers themselves, the whole lot is amazing. You could put one of these in a field, pump the volume up to full and you’d be heard for miles around. I like all of the little features too like the touch gestures, tap once to pause, tap again to play, double tap to skip to next song. The app is a great companion for it too. Overall: unbelievable sound quality, good bass, crystal clear, innovative, beautiful and an absolutely fantastic purchase.

Taken this traveling and i’m so glad we did.

I can rarely be arsed to write reviews but this is just awesome. Great sound quality with a deep bass that shouldnt be able to come from something so small.

Bought two of these as presents for teen children – both love the speaker and the app that goes with it. Great to carry around, good sound & seems to be sturdy too.

Very pleased with ue boom 2, it’s portable, great outdoors, bbq etc. F antastic sound, love, love, love it.

I am absolutely blown away by how good it actually is.

I found it difficult to choose between this and the megaboom. After much consideration i decided to save a buck or two and go with the smaller speaker because it is newer, more conveniently sized and the colours are cooler as well. This was a great désirions as this speaker is plenty loud enough and i also have lots of friends with this same model or the megaboom and so if we do want louder sound we can connect our speakers together with ease. With my old jbl speaker there was no accompanying app and i had no idea what i was missing; the usefulness of being able to turn the speaker on and off without lifting a finger (pretty much) is inexplicable. The app is brilliant but the only improvement i would recommend is to make an ipad version and the fact that ue hasn’t got round to doing it yet is frustrating for an ipad pro owner like me. That is the only noticeable drawback of this speaker and it certainly is not enough to take away a star. I could not recommend this product enough.

Ultimate Ears ROLL 2 Bluetooth Speaker Ultraportable : bl**dy brilliant

Great volume and audio quality. Battery can last for weeks before needing charging with moderate use. Would recommend for a good budget speaker.

I still cannot believe the sound that comes from such a small device. The whole package has been thought out so that it is really easy to use all the features. I was so impressed with the first one i bought that i ordered another so that they could be linked together using the double up facility. Now i am lost for words to describe just how good they are. People that i show them to can’t believe what they are hearing either.

Very impressed with the sound that comes from such a small speaker, very clear and loud. Great and a really cool design. I’ve tried this out in the shower and in the car and i can say it works perfectly. Connection to my iphone was instant and the app is great, yet to try some of the app features. Will recommend this to all my friends, very, very pleased with this.

The sound quality is amazing. It paired really quickly with iphone. It took ages to pair with ipad – hold down the on off button on ue together with volume down button, this returns it to factory settings then it immediately worked.

A great little speaker – i use it in the bathroom every day. It’s hung in the shower, but not in a place to get particularly wet, so i can’t judge it on that, but it’s robust and made of good quality materials, giving a good sound.

Perfect: sound quality, look, construction, pairing. Only minus (but not worth removing a star) is that they should come with a travel pouch.

Great speaker, amazing sound to size ratio. I’ve recently bought another one so i can double up and get stereo sound.

I was supprised by the quality of sound coming from this. It’s little loop of string is more useful than you would first think. I mostly use this speaker whilst in the shower. I travel a lot for work and this speaker has put up with being trawled about in my suitcase for a couple of months at a time.

The sound is just how i wanted it – no strong bass or treble, but balance mid-range. It’s lighter and smaller, and more seemingly more hard-wearing than i anticipated. It’s predecessor with me was the jbl clip, which is also good product.

Honestly a little disappointed with it. When it works, it works great, however moving it around will cause some loosing signal at a certain distance.

Feels quite robust, and i’m sure my son will test that quality over time. More expensive than some other speakers, but for the size, bluetooth range and sound quality it’s worth paying a bit more.

From such a small speaker comes an amazing quality, depth and volume of sound. Used it with an iphone in a presentation in a large hall – everyone could hear clearly and were initially surprised by the volume from such a small speaker.

For a small size speaker (smaller than a hand span), the quality of sound is excellent. Have listened to all genres: current hits with fab bass, classical, choral, big band, jazz, piano and organ music (amazing) and quality is clear, surrounding and not tinny. It comes with a clip to attach to handle or curtains. Volume is high enough to fill a room with loudness without distortion. Quality good when volume is lower. It’s excellent for travel or time away from home speakers, in the garden/park etc.

Great sounds quality – louder than i can ever see us needing, plays super quiet too which is handy, looks fantastic, but it is much heavier than anticipating. You can find out the charge by pressing both the plus and minus sound buttons which is nice.

Got it to listen to music at work when on down time. Its a loud environment but the speaker is loud enough that it can be heard if you are within 20 meters at least, maybe more but i didnt measure. The only downside is the battery life. I was under the impression you could get up to 10 hours, however after about 4 and a half it died. This was after a 10-12 hour overnight charge.

Easy to set up with a long battery life. Waterproof and practical with a sound which is way beyond my expectations- and i’m a hifi buffit’s fun and easy to use, great for the kitchen and on the boat.

Very much appreciated by the grandson for whom it was bought.

Bought as a present for my teenage son, this speaker has been extremely well received, simple to use and sounds great. I would heartily recommend this speaker.

So not one to write reviews, but this little beauty deserves it. I checked which reviews and this one had the highest rating of any protable / bluetooth speaker.

So easy to set up – ready to go right out of the package, paired with my laptop in seconds, and the sound fills the room. Absolutely love this little thing. It even comes with a floaty so you can use it.

Brilliant speaker and perfect sound quality. The remote control from my phone is ideal as i can turn it on it the bathroom from my bed in time for my shower. The only downside for me is this doesn’t link with the boom 2 and i thought it might after reading reviews.

I take this everywhere on my travels, perfect for hotel rooms and listening to the news in the bathroom while getting ready.

Ultimate Ears Power Up Charging Dock : Simplicity to charge

Much easier to use this charge stand than the alternative of plugging in the charge cable in the bottom of the speaker.

The speaker is still waterproof when the d-screw is put into the speaker.

Really makes charging a breeze and keeps the speaker upright. Just pace the speaker on the stand after changing to the silver d ring supplied.

Works really well with the speaker, nice sleek design and a quick charge.

  • Should be available in black!
  • Hellishly overpriced but does the job
  • Must have accessory!

Ultimate Ears Power Up Charging Dock for Blast and Megablast Portable Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Speakers, Compact Design, Play Music While Charging – White

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Always ready to go: Keeps your speaker charged and ready for any adventure.
  • Works with: Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST portable Wi-Fi / Bluetooth speakers with Amazon Alexa built-in.
  • Convenient home base: Makes charging your speaker easier than ever.
  • Listen to music while charging: Blast tunes or ask Alexa to crank the volume, check the weather and more.
  • Sleek design: Fits into any home and looks stunning with any of the BLAST and MEGABLAST colors.

This item is ludicrously overpriced. Its literally a small d-ring for the speaker and a plastic disc to sit the speaker on; you need to use the charging cables supplied with the speaker, so you really are getting not very much for your money. That said its a much more practical way of charging your speaker and as mine is in near constant i’ve accepted the fact that i have been knowingly fleeced. So five stars for practicality and 1 star for taking the piss on the pricing.

Must have charger for your blast.

Essential item for a megablast – 4 stars as it should be included as standard with the megablast.

Ideal if you need an easy option of properly charging the ue blast/mega blast speaker with amazon alexa enabled.

Is what it is, saves messing with cables, 4 stars as not cheap.

If you have a blast or megablast that’s in regular use, and what’s the point of buying one if you are not going to use it, then this power-up is essential. You change the locking screw from black to silver and then you can stand the speaker on the dock for charging so it is always ready for use. You can also charge whilst listening. My one obvious gripe is that i wish they did a black version to match my black megablast – but to be honest you don’t really notice the white colour that much.

Wirelessly charges megaboom, so much easier than plugging it in.

This product made my life so much easier. Being able to just pick it up when i am leaving for elsewhere and being able to just come back and put it down rather than fiddling with cables. Another great use is that when you have the speaker on the dock its always turned on making it easy to use alexa whenever you need to. The quality of the docks is quite hard and feels very robust, and seems pretty tough to break. I have been using mine for a few months and i would most certainly say it’s worth the price.

A little expensive but simple to use. If you want convenience charging for a megablast or blast speaker on the go this is for you.

Bit pricey for what it is , but that’s the only negative i can say.

This product is ideal, saves unscrewing for charging, just makes like that little bit easier.

Should really be included with the megablast – it’s not a complete package without it.

This makes charging your blast so quick and easy, just stand it straight on base, less fuss.

Designed to do the job it does. Little pricey but you only have 1 option.

Very expensive, but the item is fine, only reason for bad review is because for a charging dock, its so expensive.

Ultimate Ears 984-000559 BOOM 2 Wireless/tooth Speaker, Beautiful Rich Sound, Plenty of Bass

After reading all the reviews i have to say i am somewhat disappointed with this speaker. Yes it has good clarity of sound but the bass is non existent. I have sonos speakers in the house so i compared it to the sonos 1. Unfortunately the sonos 1 blew it out water, there was no comparrison to be had, the sonos was superior in every way, clarity, bass, volume. These two speakers are similarly priced. I also compared it to the bose soundlink and again i felt i had the inferior product, there is just so much more bass with the bose. If i could, i would have returned it and bought the bose. I have no idea why other reviewers think this is so good. I bought this speaker at half its rrp and still feel disappointed, i’d have been gutted if id paid full price.

Cheaper than the special edition ones being sold in john lewis on black friday for £95. Quick delivery, great sound for all of the types of music i have. Sleek design though you have to lay the speaker on its side to charge it via cable and wall plug. Comes 40% charged and charges up fully very quickly. App is a bit rubbish though that isn’t the seller’s responsibility, however, something buyers should be aware of. My main speakers are bose and this is a fantastic travel speaker.

I live on a boat so the waterproof feature was a huge selling point for me. I haven’t dropped it in yet but have cruised in heavy rain and not had any problems. The sound quality is great and the battery lasts a very long time. The bluetooth works a treat i hook it up to both my phone, and laptop when i’m watching movies. People have mentioned that it’s a bit chunky, and it is. It has a feeling of real quality to it. It’s clearly very well made. I’ve had my ue boom for quite a few months now and it’s been bashed around a fair bit and carried around in backpacks many times and it still looks great.

Comments from buyers

“If you want the best look no further, Great value, durable, well made, waterproof speaker with excellent battery life., Best of the bunch by some margin, ridiculous value.”

Recently attended a retreat where more than half the teachers were using ultimate ears speakers, with the boom 2 leading the way. Perfect for background music for work place or classes, as well as for social events – especially in party mode. The concept of having up to 150 of these units all synced together is incredible, and i’d love to see how it would work in a real world situation. Once you update the firmware on the speaker, you get great battery life, great sound and easy use with multiple devices. People keep asking me about it and where they can get one, so it sells itself. The waterproof feature is ideal for poolside, or for outdoor work. Mine has been rained on and covered in mud, and still works perfectly.

Good battery, has an aux socket which is great for phones with a built-in dac, and supports tripods and standswaterproofing is great, mine lives in the bathroom so puts up with a lotgood volume and good sound quality, i would say the best you’ll get for the money (i got on offer for £70 but would pay £100 and still think i got a good deal)doesn’t support the world’s foremost bluetooth standards but nothing does at this price pointjust don’t forget to turn it off when you’re done, because the auto off seems like a long time – but this will be a personal preference as i’ve seen so many that turn themselves off way too quickly.

Like all the reviews below say. . I’ve had 2 really good bluetooth speakers and they’ve finally expired. Read the reviews on amazon and online, all of which pointed to the boom2. I’ve learned that running your speaker in for a couple of hours isn’t a myth and it really does improve the range and especially the bass. 4 hours in, it’s everything the other reviews said it was. Amazing volume without distortion. Uncanny 360 degree sound which is hard to believe. Dithering and second guessing about a purchase is fault of mine.

For a single, standalone speaker, the sound quality of this speaker is surprisingly good. Volume can be turned up so that it is very loud, without ‘vibrating’, which is ideal for certain outdoor situations. I haven’t had it out when it is raining as it doesn’t look like it would resist a lot of water, so i can’t comment on its water resistance. A fully recharged battery lasts for up to ~6 hours. You can download an app so you can control it from your phone. I don’t think that you can control it in a similar way from your computer although i stand to be corrected.

Small in stature huge in sound, best of the bunch by some margin, tried a few including the bose soundlink mini 2, this is superior in every respect to my ears, playing spotify via the lower quality free setting from my laptop the sound is gutsy but never boomy, in fact bass is crisp & tight but also full powerful & punchy, mids are ridiculously expressive & detailed, top end blends seamlessly with the rest of the range, give it a good few hours though from new if you want to hear what this capable of, out of the box the sound is more restrained & hard, once those drive units have loosened up with use, this soon melts away & your left with a sound so packed full of musicality it beggars belief, havn’t taken it past half volume as yet, the sound is powerful enough at this level, having owned high end audio equipment for many years from the likes of naim & quad to name but 2, this purchase was both a delight & a wake up call, in fact if anyone has listened to naim gear they may enjoy this speaker, has that similar addictive, direct, solid presentation, i have listened to nothing else since, cannot recommend this highly enough, buy one, you will not regret it.

I’ve had minirigs for years, since they came out. Been through about 4 of them, while at the time i thought they were the best thing ever lately i have been dissapointed with their toughness. A drop from about 1 meter onto tarmac left 2 of the plastic cone mounting points shattered. Plus not waterproof, and the short round shape which does look nice is actually highly inconvenient for carrying. Searched around a bit until i decided to give ue a try, the boom2 seemed to be roughly equivalent to a minirig. Firstly the build quality is very high. The thing is properly tough, and waterproof. I have dropped it, splashed it, had it bounce around an all terrain forklift cab for over a week with absolutely no problems at all. Louder than the minirig, and definitely a better sound reproduction.

I’ve tried loads of portable speakers over the years ie bose jambox sony etc but none are remotely as good as these. . Superb soundloud ( not distorted )easy to charge with the bright yellow charger includedvery quick and efficient bluetooth pairingwater resistant so ok fo the bathroomgreat build qualitygreat colorscan form a stereo pair if you have 2.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM tooth Speaker Waterproof – Mighty little speaker

Really great speaker which has been properly tested in the swimming pool. Provides great sound and volume for the size. Bought for teenage kids who are very happy with the purchase.

Wow, this speaker is really amazing. The battery life is excellent. The quality of the music is outstanding for the size of the speaker. It has a deep bass and clear tops. It’s very durable and easy to wipe clean if used outside and gets dirty. It is waterproof tested it in the bath speaker continued to play. Wiped it dry again on speaker played perfectly again. Would definitely recommend in fact i have been. Order it you won’t be disappointed.

By far the best speaker i’ve ever used, and for a very decent price. Top quality sound and appearance, would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient yet surprisingly loud and high quality speaker. The fabric texture is very unique and feels good to touch.

Amazing sound, especially given its size. With a way to plug in a lead as well as bluetooth it would be 5 stars – but if that’s not important to you, consider it 5.

Great sounds (for rock and dance type music), not so great with other types but still good. Reasonably loud for what it is, pretty clear sound, dropped it once about a metre and still works.

The relatively small package, certainly belies its punch; the sound from this unit is very impressive providing a very decent bass without neglecting vocals (and even more impressive given both the size and relative low cost). While i haven’t tested the promises surrounding its waterproof capability (), its a sturdy little speaker and superb for taking on the move and using outdoors. A particularly notable quality is the speaker’s ability to maintain its bluetooth connectivity despite being some distance from the unit. I find this very handy indeed. After using a whole variety of wired and bluetooth alternatives, unreservedly so. After two months of use, the only negative i can think of – and its a tenuous one at that – is that’s appearance is a little ‘knights templar’ and i wish they’d designed the volume buttons a little differently. Still, this is a very minor gripe, certainly doesn’t affect performance and in every other respect, the speaker is well worth the money.

  • Build quality amazing, sound quality better.
  • Boom! Shake The (Small) Room.
  • A rugged and compact speaker

Purchased mainly for use in the bathroom so wanted something showerproof, beyond that i went on reviews. Then i saw this colourful wee beast and knew i had to have it. Delightfully packaged and vibrantly coloured, even the charge cable is bright yellow, i fell in love with this tiny speaker and it makes me smile every time i look at it (i know, i need to get out more, you’re not the first to think it)the sound quality to my musically challenged ears is loud, punchy, and clear; although in fairness i do not have it at full volume as i doubt my neighbours would appreciate it. It started off as a bathroom speaker but now pretty much follows me around as i do house and garden chores. After leaving it in both the shower and a rain storm i can confirm it is waterproof.

I’ve had this device since for 10 months now and overall i’m really impressed with their battery life and the durability of them. Admittedly the sound quality isn’t those of a higher end speaker (i. Bose/sonnos) but there’s honestly nothing wrong with it for someone after a robust speaker to take to the beach or have in the shower. My only disliking is the control of sound isn’t amazing but this shouldn’t put you off.

I use this paired to my laptop. Easy to pair with my chromebook and my windows laptop. Not so easy to pair with debian desktop; but that is not ue’s fault. Could do with more instructions. (why is the ‘reduce volume’ minus sign vertical. Make it look a it like a urn for someone’s ashes).

First off, this feels like a solidly built product. It is quite weighty, so i would not want to carry it around with me, but it feels built to last. The control buttons weren’t intuitive to me at first, so i needed a quick google in order to set it up. However once i realised how they worked it was simple after that. The product pairs easily with my phone and the range seems good. Sound quality is excellent with rich bass and the volume is good.

However for amplifying films on an ipad the blutooth delay puts the sound and video out of sync. If you need it for film as well as music, then get a unit that also has a wired connection option.

Brilliant sound from a relatively compact speaker. It connects really easily to iphone. Be aware that it can only connect to other wonderboom speakers and nothing else from the ultimate ears range – this is a limitation and why it only gets 4 stars.

I’ve bought bluetooth speakers before and always gone for small portable units and the sound quality and battery life seem to have always reflected the sizethis wonderboom is in a different league. I have no idea how they get so much rich deep reverberant and (if you want) loud sound from such a small unit. I love the design, the small size and the battery life. I love the fact that you can have more than one device registered to the bluetooth connection, so either i or my partner can just start playing music without having to change anything. I haven’t tested the waterproofing or shock proofing but both specs would indicate this is an ideal speaker to take with you outdoors or in the wet. My only negatives would be that it’s not quite so good at very low volumes (eg background music whilst reading)well worth the price.

It’s not a patch on my jbl xtreme but that’s comparing apples to oranges. I was after a speaker that i could take on my travels (the xtreme is too. . Xtreme)so i wanted something with the oomph but less size and weight. This fits the bill perfectly. The 360 sound is really good and the durability looks ideal. I haven’t fully tested it yet but it will travel within the next month or so and i expect it to excel. So currently, with my limited testing, i’m impressed.

Great sound particularly when put into stereo, easy to chuck in a bag and take away and charge holds really well. Customer service were really helpful when i was having difficulty pairing, but was my mistake as i was pressing the wrong set of buttons.

The best portable speaker i’ve ever owned. It’s not cheap, but it sounds amazing. Deep clear bass and genuine encompassing sound field. It’s plenty loud enough for most occasions. It’s not that small, or light so it’s possibly not suited for all travelling needs, but it’s built in hanging loop would allow it to easily be clipped onto a rucksack. Only downside is it’s bluetooth only, there is no aux input for connecting non bluetooth devices. Not sure why they didn’t add that.

Bought this speaker as girf and it’s not the first one i get from the ue product. I got a boom2 for myself and bought a roll 2 for one of my friends. All of the ue speakers are great quality ones; their sound is really really good and they are super resistant. I would suggest this products to everyone who want to enjoy music everywhere.

Big sound, the portable bluetooth speaker with surprisingly big sound, hear music like never before with sound that is clear, crisp and full of big, elegant bass

5 stars as the bluetooth connection dropped a few times, connecting to the yaufey projector. Its certainly possible that its all the projector’s fault, and seems fine after the first couple of disconnects. Sound quality for a speaker of this size is excellent, and the dimensions are perfect for travel.

The audio is crisp and very clear. However, in the packaging the instructions weren’t very clear and they were very limited. Also, when i try to press the button on top to change the song, it may take me more than one press. Other than that, it is an amazing device and i recommend it to everyone. I’ve used it for a month now and, in comparison to other speaker, it is without a doubt the dominant one.

I bought this pair during an amazon lightning deal, and so was a great price. The speakers sound nice, and are well made. The only reason they get 4 stars and not 5, is because they don’t play in stereo when you connect the pair together.

A very clever little box, it’s not hi-fi quality sound, but what would you expect for the size. It’s certainly loud, and sounds surprisingly unforced at high volumes. The only downside i’ve noticed is that (on several ios devices at least) you have to go into bluetooth settings to connect it to your device, as for some reason it doesn’t appear in the airplay output list. This is a minor gripe, given that you usually have to turn it on before each use (it turns off automatically after ?15 mins idle time). By the way, we have dunked it in water a few times to test its ip rating, leading to much time at bath time as our children try to hear it playing underwater.

Bought as a present so limited checking of product. Sound is good and clear with decent volume – i always wonder why ue don’t publish speaker output wattages. Product seems robust and operation and pairing was easy.

I was well pleased with the sound of this. I think the sound is very good. My only negative is that because i use it for sleepsounds/music when falling asleep the lowest volume is still a bit too loud. Also the on/off sound it makes is stupidly loud and when the music has stopped and the speaker eventually turn itself off it wakes me up quite violently. However for daytime listening whilst getting ready and putting makeup on, as well as listening in the bath, it is really great.

10 hours of happiness be there all day, all-night; the WONDERBOOM wireless speaker gives you 10 hours of non-stop musical ecstasy, 10 hours of entertainment with immersive sound

I am so pleased with this little bomb. It sounds great, is so hardy, and so compact and user friendly. Our house would be lost without it. We took it on holiday, on a boating holiday etc, and it was great for us all to listen to some music, the children to listen to audible book etc. My son tested in the water and that seemed to work, but i will not be trying to replicate that. But it is good to know that if i use it in the bathroom and it gets a little wet, it will still go on. The sound quality is great for me, and my husband agrees, especially for the money, but then we are not huge sound fanatics.

Great sound , i’m not going into technical details here but for the money they give a good tone, pitch and bass; better than i expected.

Can’t praise this product enough. We had previously bought the single speaker and have used them with great success. I bought these as a present and the recipient is absolutely thrilled ( which doesn’t happen often).

Sound quality = 5/5battery life = 5/5durability = 5/5 (dropped a few times)tempted to buy another one so i can pair them.

Amazing, ive used a bunch of speakers, these are by far some of the best pair you can have, i wish they would support stereo sound, but even in mono, have each one in opposite corners and it will fill up your area with sound. Can get extremely loud, for the size its amazing.

I was worried that it would under perform in terms of bass and volume. It’s more than up to the job. Easily loud enough for a hotel room; also used it in the garden at a bbq and it was fine for that too. Very easy to connect to, charge and use. All in all a cracking little speaker. It’s no sonos play 1, but as a temporary/portable unit it’s ideal. Would have been even more pleased if it came in a protective case, or even a little bag but for this money you can’t really go wrong.

Very pleased with this set of 2 speakers which i bought on amazon’s deal of the day for a bargain £79. My only criticism is that they are a little too much on high end (treble), but otherwise they deliver a very decent sound with clear vocals and decent bass. Pairing both was straight forward, but if you struggle there are several instructional videos on you tube. Even at their rrp, these are a good buy and don’t disappoint.

The ideal outdoor speaker for showers, pools, beaches, muddy fields and rainy days since it is completely waterproof and it can float and if it gets dirty, just rinse it off

The sound is great from whatever angle. We tend to use phones for music now and connection to this speaker is simple and quick. Sound quality is good and perfect for background music for small gatherings.

It’s brilliant and a revelation to me i can take it round the garden or anywhere and it sounds great. A friend that we went on holiday with had one and we were so impressed we ordered one as soon as we got home. It’s waterproofness was tested when we had a leak through the kitchen ceiling and it was still playing whilst being drenched.

I love it (maybe because it’s my first bluetooth speaker). However, i will be honest and say i was disappointed by the bass when i tested it the first time (albeit with a song that has deep bass). It can’t reach the lower bass tones and so doesn’t have the richness and ‘boom’. That said, it’s still ok and does have bass, just not considerable. Also, the waterproof feature is good, no problems there. One annoyance is that it cannot be used when making or taking calls, not even as an output. It just cuts out completely, which was rather disappointing when i first discovered it. All in all, it’s a decent speaker, lacking in a couple of personal points of preference.

Bought for 70 gbp in feb 2018 – its a good speaker but i wouldn’t buy it again for the money. It is bigger than i thought from the pictures and i was really looking for a smaller size. Sound quality is okay for a compact speaker, turns off automatically to save battery which is good but does it with quite an obtrusive sound effect which is a shame. If you know this is what you want then im sure it will be good.

I tested this against the anker soundcore motion q – similar size and power, but £20 cheaper than the wonderboom. I tested them side by side to get a true comparison. The result: the wonderboom lives up to its name. Deeper bass, brighter treble, more presence, detail and sparkle. By comparison, the motion q was flatter and a bit muddier. Just not as lively and without the bass depth of the wonderboom. In this case, you get what you pay for. But if you’re willing to pay a little extra for the wonderboom, you get the jump in performance. It won’t shake your fillings out, but for its size (slightly stubbier than a can of soup) the bass has plenty of oomph.

Bought this speaker to go on holiday and because it was waterproof. Definitely waterproof as i threw it in the pool to test and it passed. Although struggled to listen to it underwater :p. Sound quality is good considering the size and it gets to a decent volume. The fact that you can double up speakers is a nice touch. I think the bigger speakers will have better sound but obviously there’s added size and expense. Charging via usb is handy and convenient. Battery life is pretty good seems a good 6 hours at leastoverall a nice speaker and good value.

Double the speakers, double the fun if you think one WONDERBOOM wireless bluetooth speaker sounds great, you will love how they sound paired together grab a friend, connect and get loud, WONDERBOOM is drop proof tested from up to five feet and sports a hanging loop on top so it can easily attach to any bag, bicycle, backpack or cannonball into a cove without thinking twice

Looked around for a while on what to buy, settled on this and it genuinely blew me away. I don’t have a real comparison to make, but i was really impressed at how full the sound was out of one speaker unit. The volume fills a room, the styling is great and it connects to a single phone really well. (avoid trying two phones, its gets messy).

Brilliant little speaker, and when you have two and pair them, they will fill a very large area with great sound for such a small speaker. Well made, string and waterproof. I like ue products, their high end headphones are so good, i have the triple fi 10s which is what made me choose these speakers.

Considering it’s size it really does produce an impressive sound. Battery life is good even on close to max volume.

The 360-degrees sound is amazing, the clarity is astounding, and the build quality is unrivalled. Mine legit got punched off a table and landed on a hard floor on the first day of me having it, and there wasn’t a scratch. It feels sturdy and solid, definitely like something worth the price tag. The tactile feel of the buttons has improved a little, especially on the top of the device, but the volume buttons do need a little extra force to be pressed (and right in the centre too). The volume of the device is pretty loud. Even in parties or pre-drinks i never really set it above half volume, or it gets too loud. However, the sound can distort at the highest volume levels, *although*, this may just be a software or external hardware issue due to drivers or the media being played itself. I myself did not notice it at all until i was watching a movie with it.

I was a little surprised how small it was, despite that it is a great sound. It is not something i would chose if i wanted a speaker for a permanent position as it is obviously intended as a portable unit and ideal for moving around the house or travel.

Excellent sound for holiday tunes. A bit heavier than expected but not an issue for me. Sound was excellent and extremely easy to connect to my bluetooth devices.

Bought this on recommendation of my son and daughter-in-law for a garden barbecue. Small and portable, the sound quality is incredible – deep basses and clear tones – and remains connected to bluetooth several metres away from my ipad.

I’m a bit of a music junky and like a full ‘traditional’ sound – so i hate tiney speakrs that sound tinny. I have two and can pair them so i can have in kitchen and garden. Battery life is brillian – had them both on all day at the weekend, and still had battery for the next day. Can’t fault these at all for the price.

Love the bright cute colours and design. Just perfect for going on holiday, picnics, pools. Sound is mighty for it’s size. I like the bass on the ue boom and wonderboom, very rounded sound. I also own a bose link mini ii which is also great but i find this one more versatile for carrying around and having fun, it doesn’t seem as fragile. Very happy with my purchase.

I bought it as a gift – but kept it. The sound quality is really good, i can’t fault it, and certainly not at this price. I play it a lot while in the bath and have discovered it really is waterproof – i knocked it in a bath of water by accident and it kept playing. If i had to find fault, i might say it’s hard to adjust the volume using my feet as the controls are fairly flush to the sides of the wonderboom, but that’s nothing. And if i were to add a button, it would be a button to skip to the next track. But these are minor matters, i think it’s both tough and high quality, comparable to the bose bluetooth speaker i have that cost nearly 3x as much. The wonderboom is simple to use, easy to connect using bluetooth and i’d certainly buy another if gave away this one.

One of the best products i have ever purchased. This speaker performs incredibly at any volume with brilliant bass, mid-range and treble. It floats without fail and although the sound quality is compromised it is to be expected. This speaker is great for sailing as it can be attached to a cleat/carabiner in the boat and you need not fear for your speaker when you capsize or gybe, it is also great for rowing. The sound quality as previously stated is incredible and the speaker can go loud enough to cater for any regular environment. Easy to connect to with bluetooth but unfortunately no aux jack is present in the speaker so some older mp3 players/ipods may not be compatible. The charger works well – not especially fast but sufficient to charge the speaker to 100% in less than 2 hours (for me 1. The fabric covering is prone to stains but otherwise is appealing. The buttons are not particularly tactile but when pressed function – just do not expect a click.

Considering the size of this small device, it certainly kicks out some serious sound.

Why do brooke think that there is no need for jack input. If you are watching a video from your laptop or any device and you want to use your bluetooth speaker there is a latency. I assumed it will have one in due to owning a previous model.
