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.

  • Outstanding Speaker for Size and Price
  • Excellent – if you don’t mind controlling music from your phone
  • Simply Amazing Sound

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Stretchy, attachable marine-grade bungee: Strap the wireless speaker to your bike, backpack, kayak or wherever else you want to take your music
  • Waterproof: You can submerge UE ROLL 2 outdoor speaker in water, waterproof for up to 30 minutes and a depth of 1 m
  • Lighter than a can of soda: Ultra-portable speaker and so light you will forget you are even carrying it
  • Go farther: 100 feet wireless bluetooth speaker range and nine hour rechargeable battery life go as long as you can

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.

    • Plenty of punch with the sound – and the graphic equaliser app lets you tweak to your hearts content. Some players have a better battery life, but this kept going for hours as i was decorating large areas of the house (about 7 hours non stop). Great – i just kept hooking it over the nearest door handle as i went. Picked up on it after a very favourable review on a certain hi-fi website – and they were quite correct. Most importantly, for a small speaker thingy, the sound quality is surprisingly good – the main reason for my purchase.

    The sound is ok for medium volume but not good enough for higher volume (or a party). I would definitely go for a bigger boom speaker like the wonderboom or boom 2. However all booms have a bit off sound quality issues when it comes to trebles.

      • Ue roll 2 speakerheard on of these speakers while on holiday in canada, and thought wow . . The sound was amazing and so robust – perfect for outdoors. Once home i decided to order one. Saw a good offer on amazon warehouse deals – like new and thought go for it. . I returned the item within an hour of receipt. . Condition of what i was sent was an absolute disgrace. . As a long term customer, i was annoyed and will now not buy electronics via amazon warehouse deals again. . I then immediately ordered the speaker again at full price. And it is brilliant, so pleased i did.

    Bass sound could be better but still happy with my purchase.
      • Waterproof, easy to use with iphone and apple watch. Very fun in the sea/pool as it floats.

    • I was originally hesitant to be paying the £70 for the speaker but after seeing all the positive reviews i. What hi-fi, i went with the speaker. The sound quality is superb and can get very loud, the battery life at 9hrs although may sound not as great compared to the ue boom 2 it will last the day which is all you need it to do. The design is rugged and durable with an ipx7 rating and a handy strap at the back with allows it to be strapped/hooked to pretty much anything. Although the app is pretty poor it has no effect on the speaker or its experience as you don’t even need to download it to start using. All of this justifies the price tag and cannot think of a negative.

    Funky, cool design with pretty good sound quality. Good volume level and of course the bungee and lilo are a novel concept. I have just submerged my speaker at which point it cut the sound entirely. When taken out the speakers sounded blown and “crackly”. Obviously a major concern and really very worrying. Weirdly the sound has returned to what seems to be normal. Which is a shame for a waterproof submergible speaker.

    • This was bought based on the recommendation of several review sites on-line who raved about its quality and durability. The sound is amazing for such a small and flat device. The range on the bluetooth is very good, the battery life impresses. I dropped it on to a hard floor on the last day of our holiday.

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

    Originally bought one for each of my children and we were really impressed with both the volume produced by such a compact speaker and the quality of the sound. When my mother-in-law was visiting us recently she loved the sound and portability so much that we got one for her as well. So far no one has been brave enough to test the water resistance.

    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.

      • Since we got this we have used it in the bath, in the kitchen and out doors. Clear sound, with surprisingly good treble and mid range. Not as ridiculously bass heavy as many portable speakers are, meaning even podcasts sound good it.
