I had the original UE boom and really liked it. Had it for about 2 years. So when I found out the new model was out I rushed to buy it. Amazon did not have it yet so I picked it up at a local Best Buy. Boy oh boy do I love it!! It is the same size as the previous one but it just feels more solidly built. I compared the two and noticed a difference. The new one was louder and a little crisper in sound. I played a song off spotify and it was very loud & clear. Loving it so far. Not sure how the battery life is as the previous when I blast it at the max it only last 2-3 hours. That is probably due to the type of music I was playing and it plays louder. Hoping this one last longer or even the same since it is more powerful. We will see but so far so good. For people that never heard about the UE boom when they first hear it they always ask what model and wonder how it can be so loud. I would recommend this speaker to people who like to have little parties or even mid size parties and need something portable.

Great Bluetooth speaker
Posted by: Chris from: on
The Boom 2 paired easily with my iPhone 6s Plus with the app. One of the first things I did when I got home was to submerge it and see if it would still play after - it did. It's spent a considerable amount of time being splashed and dunked when I use it on my paddleboard. After about a month of hard use, it still sounds and performs like new and I haven't noticed any battery degradation.

Great little speaker that packs a punch
Posted by: JQuick from: on
I have had this speaker for about a week and I have to say that I already love it. The app has a simple, user friendly interface, with controls for the EQ and ability to add more speakers to your 'sound network'.
It has good power for something so small. I am able to raise the volume to about 90% without any distortion. The bass is what can be expected from 2" drivers, so I have nothing to complain about. The fact that this little guy is so small makes it super convenient to being almost anywhere. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's in the market.

Surprising sound out of a small speaker
Posted by: Grams from: on
The UE Boom speaker is great for all ages. It is tough, portable, and best of all delivers clear sound wherever you use it. To date, we have purchased three of them -- one for ourselves (age 70+), one for our son (age 45+), and most recently one for our granddaughter (age 17). We all love it!

Great mid size Bluetooth speaker
Posted by: amerninja380 from: on
Probably the best speaker in this price range. There's plenty of bass, but it's not overpowering at all. Battery life is incredible, as is the Bluetooth range, but the Booms really come into their own with the app. The stereo sound you get when you pair two of the same speaker makes a huge difference.
I really can't think of any negatives

just under excellent selection
Posted by: hardtoplease from: on
Superb sound, great bass and pleasantly portable. I'm satisfied with punch for the price. The play time is overrated and two and a half hours to recharge leaves a long void.

Better than anything else out there for the price.

The UE Boom 2 is a great little speaker. It's rich and full-bodied like a fine red wine with crisp highs and mellow lows that have no business on a speaker this size. The battery lasts for 13+ hours, it has a range of 75 feet, it's waterproof, and if you want to splurge and buy two, you can pair them for true stereoscopic sound. Don't fall for the Beats and Bose BS. They're junk. Go with he Boom.

I bought this speaker about a year ago now, principally for camping trips, since it was supposed to be water-resistant, shock-resistant, freeze-resistant, and boasted a 13 hour battery life. Well, it's been rained on twice (water-resistant does not mean you can drop it in the pool, but that it can take a brief shower), dropped three or four times, and frozen a dozen times. It has survived all of that with flying colors. One thing I've noticed is that if you play it at it's loudest levels, the battery only lasts about two hours. But that is very loud. In camp, I run it at about 3 or 4, and it lasts pretty close to the advertised 13 hours. It's been so impressive, that three of my buddies have bought the Boom as well.

Please Read: MY FELLOW RIVER RATS & WATER BABIES
Posted by: Xtinag713 from: on
So I just bought this during a last minute emergency. I needed a waterproof speaker to go toobing down the Guadalupe river including rapids. The sound was amazing - we got several comments from strangers about the amazing sound. BUT- it died within 2 hours- we are usually in the water for about 5-8 hours. Their claim on life of the battery is actually based on LOW volume. We were blasting it the entire way- which drains the battery quicker- another group on the river told me they had the same speaker and it died quickly as well- he was pretty upset. SO- if you aren't in water and can charge it, I do recommend the UEBOOM2. BUT for everything I need it for (ALWAYS IN WATER- NO OUTLETS), it's really inconvenient. The claims on the wireless range- are tested and true!! There seem to be EXTREME pros and cons with all the waterproof speakers- not sure if I will return it yet. I will research SOLAR powered battery packs/charging packs to see IF I find something waterproof. If I do, then I will keep it.
