Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Wireless/Bluetooth Speaker – Best purchase of 2017

I bought this for my husband for xmas, he wanted something that was loud, clear and portable. This is certainly that and morei tested it before i wrapped it for him but i didn’t dare put it to its loudest incase the neighbours were disturbed. I bought it on black friday so got it for almost half price.I would pay a little more now i know how good it is. I also wanted a speaker that could be connected to via bluetooth and aux, this is perfect for both. My husband has used it multiple times since xmas and hasn’t charged it yet, so battery life seems good. Brilliant size, easily portable – i have since seen the ue boom and that would have been far too big for what my husband was wanting. I would definitely buy another, i’m thinking of asking for one for myself for next xmas.

Purchase with the mega boom and the wireless surround sound is excellent.

Excellent for my son who is at uni -.

Arrived next day absolutely delighted thank you.

Great sound, loud and waterproof to boot. Battery doesn’t seem to last too long for me but i am using them sporadically. White was cheaper but looks great and you can always wash clean if dirty.

Bought this for listening too whilst on holiday by the pool. Great piece lof kit, excellent battery life, idiot proof connectivity, and most of all great sound. Now back home, it’s used all the time.

  • Fantastic Portable Speaker
  • Best purchase of 2017
  • Brilliant – loud, clear, portable, Bluetooth/Aux – would buy again

These are so brilliant and i am delighted with the price – £85 in the january sales seems like a real steal. I would compare the sound quality with that of a bose speaker or any other high quality sound system. My brother also has one so we are able to connect the two for an even more intense coverage. Great value for money and a cool product.

If your a true water person then this is the speaker for you, i have a stand up paddle board and i clip it to the front of the board and play my music, it is very load and a nice deep bass, the best part is that it is completely waterproof.

Great sound for the size, good price to for the quality.

Amazing speaker with high quality sound. Gets loud but still keeps quality, battery life is excellent too. But i don’t recommend getting the white one as it gets dirty very quickly, especially if you are planning to use it outside.

The product arrived efficiently and works very well. It was a present for my sister. We love the sound quality and it looks very cool. We struggled at first to get the uk/eu plugs off, but eventually succeeded.

Bought as a christmas present for my daughter.

No fuss, excellent sound, robust. Well loud enough for day to day use in small to medium rooms. Huge improvement over mobile phone speakers and definitely worth it if you listen to music a lot.

Bought at present last november but starting acting up in the summer, with losing charge quickly & sound breaking up, finally got round to contacting amazon in november (tardiness of son) and they have agreed to refund, product was good while it worked but as i say did not last beyond summer really (8 months0.

Very loud and clear, and i loved the look and feel. Unfortunately i wasn’t happy with the average bass and ended up returning for a bose revolve (sadly at nearly twice the price). Not that it is terrible, i just prefer a warmer bassier sound.

Bought as a xmas gift and the recipient is over the moon with it. It has a great sound and it isn`t to difficult to set up.

Ultimate Ears wireless Bluetooth speaker provides 360 degrees surround sound for a rich, crisp and powerful audio experience

Uk/dp/b013jlhlyy/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_13if you are looking for a robust, great sounding, very clever bluetooth speaker, i defy you to find better. Terrific base and volume and great for the outdoors. After hearing one i immediately ordered mine and have been delighted with it.

I’m 37 and love my music, as do my two sons. It’s well worth the money.

This is a great bluetooth speaker. There’s a slight distortion at full volume, but never need full volume, the power and clarity of the sound is amazing. I carry mine around with me everywhere, and 6 of my friends and family have been so impressed they’ve gone out and bought their own (hint, if it’s family buy different colours).

Great sound, durable, mobile and very easy to connect.

I absolutely love this speaker. It is super loud and portable. The app works perfectly with the app and controll the speaker even when the speaker is switched off. The song control mechanism however, it works sometime and sometime it doesnt.

Amazing such a tiny thing can fill your house with music.

This portable speaker pairs with up to eight Bluetooth devices at the same time, with a mobile range up to 33 m and NFC-enabled

Excellent sound quality, and excellent portability. You wouldn’t believe that such powerful sound is coming out of this little speaker. It’s sturdy and well built, and doesn’t take long to fully charge.

I purchased this item for my son. It is a very stylish looking speaker that sounds fantastic. I was really surprised at the quality of the sound and volume from this speaker. The wireless part of the item is great, connects instantly and never goes off. It was so easy to set up and use. The item came well packaged.

Hooks up to bluetooth and is completely wireless and (appears to be) waterproof. Really robust, comes in an awesome box with all the necessary cables and i love the white colour option as well. Battery life is great and alarm function is way better than just using your phone.

I don’t know what i’d do without it. I hope ue do headphones/earbuds soon.

Bought daughter this for christmas and she loves it. She takes it in the shower with her or carries it around when getting ready. It is super loud but quality sounds really good. My husband has a bose one and to be honest i can’t really tell the difference. Very good alternative to more expensive brands. Looks good too and super simple to set up.

First bluetooth speaker for me so i did a lot of looking around before buying this one and without doubt think it was the right choice and would recommend it. It was very easy to connect to both my phone and laptop and the sound is great.

Great sound, great battery life. Was really upset when it was stolen though :(when it was delivered it was just thrown over my gate. Wasn’t impressed to see the box in ruins but the product seemed okay upon inspection.

Ultimate Ears Bluetooth speakers have won multiple awards, including the 2016 IF Design Awards and What Hi-Fi 5 star awards across the entire range

Bought on sale for 99 pounds and was definitely worth it. Perfect speakers for studying, having friends over and playing music in the shower. The sound quality is outstanding and will impress when turned on. The speakers are surprisingly light and can be taken in a backpack no problem. Battery life is really good and definitely lasts more than advertised, the speakers turn off when not in use so they are perfect when playing music before going to sleep. They work perfectly for all the uses i’ve given them which are: studying, party/drinks, shower and group studying.

Great sound and very nice looking.

I read a lot of reviews before buying this and they were not lying the quality of this speaker for the price cannot be beaten.

The best mobile speaker you will ever buy. Puts known brands like bose in its back pocket.

An impressive little speaker. Standing at just under 20cm, the logitech ue boom 2 delivers a colourful and lively sound, handling most genres confidently. Portability is big selling point here, as is the ease in which you can connect up your devices. While the ue app is straightforward, it doesn’t add a huge amount of extra functionality or customisation. I mostly enjoy the simplicity and sturdiness of its design and the breadth of the sound produced. The speaker leans more towards acoustic, pop and vocal tracks, producing a rich 360 listening experience. It has struggled with some distortion for full choruses and bass-heavy parts, and electronic and hip-hop (personal favourites) are hit and miss, sometimes detailed and expressive, other times buzzy or unlevelled. I would recommend the ue boom 2 as a perfect feature for all spaces (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garden, park, pool) and a solid bbq companion. There’s lots more good listening still to come.

Excellent quality for a decent price. Saw that it got a good review in what hi-fi so took a punt and have not been disappointed. Easily gives the overpriced beats pill a run for it’s money.

Ultimate Ears waterproof speaker can be immersed in water up to 1 m for 30 minutes

Amazing sound and so easy to use itworth every pennyvery happy customer.

Bought one for under £99, its good, so good that i decided to buy a second one to try the stereo pairing option.

For a little speaker it really gives you amazing sound quality. I was at somebody’s house when they were playing music from one of these and i decided i needed a portable bluetooth speaker in my life. I then bought a cheaper one from here for £21. 99 but the sound quality just wasn’t good enough – so i decided to stop being tight and got myself one of these. Very happy i did 🙂 would recommend.

Excellent speaker for price. I use mine with fire tv and projector. No latency in audio so works for videos and music.

1) very durable product, i would recommend this if you want something that can last a beating/water. 2) sound is good, but i wouldn’t say ‘amazing’ for the price, i think you’re paying more for its durability/build than sound. (recommend trialling one before you buy if possible at a store)3) i did have to return my original, as the plug adaptor got stuck and essentially broke – the replacement however worked fine. 4) extremely easy to setup, also comes with a handy app on your phone to configure the ue2 boom.

Additional features set it aside from similar options. Would recommend, might buy another and ‘double up’.

Love the option to pair up (mate bought one at same time for boat trip. ) only issue is colour and how to clean ‘marks’ from it?.

Very good speaker with bluetooth. Very easy to know who it is works. You can add several items to use it with them.

    I bought these speakers so i could listen to music in the shower and occasionally take them out sometimes. The first day i charged it for about half an hour and it went from 80% to 10% after 1 shower (15 minutes) on full volume. I thought that was strange so then i left it on charge for about 5 hours before using them in the shower the next day. They then held for a further 3 (15 minute) shower sessions before dying again. I then realised it was time to return them since i was either an unlucky customer or had been sold a refurbished pair and told it was new. Which either way is extremely upsetting since i am a first time buyer of this product and already i am put off by the “ultimate ears” brand. Definitely will not be buying from them again. Sorry, but i would rather pay the premium and stick with the bigger brands such as jbl who’s “jbl charge” lasted me 2 years, before i gave them to a friend who is still using them. Would have given them 1 star, but i decided to give them 2 stars since the sound was good and the packaging was amazing. But i didn’t buy them for the packaging.

      • |this was the replacement for the first boom 2 bought for christmas. Both have now had problems with crackle and bass distortion. No longer in warranty so a waste of money.

  6. This review is from : Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Wireless/Bluetooth Speaker (Waterproof and Shockproof) – Cloud White

    This is a wonderful speaker. It’s not perfect and i can explain but it’s a wonderful product nevertheless. I originally got the wonderboom but i found that there was too much bass in that. I know some people love a lot of bass but i found it was too much to hear voices as clearly. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t unclear, but it wasn’t clear either. My primary purpose is to use this in the shower. The wonderboom would have been a bit better in terms of size/weight but the bass was too much. I found that the boom 2 is very clear and for most purposes it does the job very well. I should note i have a smart speaker already (sonos) and an echo dot and a google home, i really have zero need for one more smart speaker in the house so the blast was not something i’d use anyway. With that in mind i went for this model because:- you can control music (sort of) unlike the roll.

    • Speaker is just over a year old and its blown. The quality was good while it lasted.
