    Best Gift

    I bought this as a gift for my wife. She listens to music all the time and when we go to trips, such as the beach or camping, it was important to be able to take the music with us. The speaker pairs right up with her phone, she can listen to spotify or XM and it comes through crystal clear. Sounds fantastic and gets pretty loud. This speaker can also take a beating. Its been rained on, dropped multiple times, knocked off countertops, and covered in sand. Still sounds and works great!

    Great Sound!

    We already owned one of these speakers and bought this one so we could have stereo sound. Even though it is not a Bose speaker, the sound is full. We have used them outdoors on our patio and they have provided enough sound (even with many people to absorb the sounds). It, being shaped like a tube, has rolled off of the table one or two times (and landed on the concrete surface) with no negative effects on the performance. The casing is just a little scratched, but the internal workings still produce great sound. The only reason that I gave it only 4 stars is that I feel it is a little on the spendy side.

    Incredible, rugged bluetooth speaker

    This is the best bluetooth speaker I've ever owned. I have 3 of them, in different styles. Aside from being REAL waterproof, making them perfect for a beach or pool day, the battery lasts for a full day, and you can link up to 150 of them together for an amazing multi-speaker setup!!!! You can also link them with Megabooms, and original Boom/Boom 1 speakers. If I had to make one complaint, it lacks buttons to change tracks and play/pause. Instead, it relies on gesture control, which is less than perfect. I can't recommend this enough.

    Purchased this wireless Bluetooth speaker as a gift for a family member. Easy to set up and easy to use. You will need to download the UE Boom 2 app on your smart phone. You can pair it with another Boom 2 Speaker if you own two. Once you pair with your smart phone and connect, you can control the volume from your smartphone or manually from your Boom 2. Now you are ready to stream your music. You can receive calls from your smartphone and use the Boom 2 as a speakerphone. The app on your phone has an alarm feature and EQ feature. You will not be disappointed with this wireless Bluetooth speaker.

    This little speaker is so loud!!!! Purchased one for my father for Christmas and he uses with an old Discman and Bluetooth transmitter. Great way to enjoy old CDs in full stereo sound without a whole stereo. I purchased one for myself instead of a sounder for my TV. Last thing I want is another black box and wire in my living room - just plugged a bluetooth transmitter into TV, synced with the Boom 2 et voila - a stereo right next to me. Now I can actually hear everything they say on TV (for better or worse...)

    Beware of hanging the speaker

    I hung the speaker as advertised and the hanging stud came loose from the speaker and speaker fell in the lake leaving the stud attached to my rope. It was a good speaker for about three hours. UE failed to honor their warranty and advised me it should be tightened......no kidding. They outright refused to honor their warranty stating it was lost.....I said it's not lost it's at the bottom of the lake because of your poor design or quality control.

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift. However, the whole family was able to experience the greatness of UE Boom 2 as we sat outside around a roaring fire pit accompanied by tunes across the generations represented by family members. I felt confident that this purchase could weather the environment because of the reputation of the product. I enjoyed the gift giving so much I went and bought one for myself. Perfect size. Perfect sound. Perfect ruggedness. Can't wait till we're gathered together again and have two Boom 2s paired together providing a soundtrack to our family time.

    Great portable speaker

    I did quite a bit of research before ultimately purchasing this speaker. It has all of the capabilities that I need, including playing music and speakerphone. I am very pleased with it thus far and really like that it is waterproof. The reason I didn't give the full five stars is due to the volume intervals. I find that there are not enough intervals and it is either just barely too quiet or too loud while playing music in a normal indoor setting with no background noise. Perhaps a future software update could fix this. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the product.

    I must say that I really love these speakers,,they are great for indoor and outdoor use,,,just this past summer I was on the public beach in Grand Haven,,and I had 2 Ue Megabooms on my backpack that was rocking a large crowd of people,,,everyone was dancing like they were at a concert. I went back and purchased a Ue Boom2 for my girlfriend because she wanted to use it while she was at college in her dorm room ,,and everyday she keeps on telling me just how amazing they sound,,I'm thinking of buying her another one so that she can pair them up and really enjoy them in stereo sound.

    Speaker number 2, repeat purchase

    I bought this speaker for my daughter in college after I purchased one just two weeks earlier for myself. She loves it. Holds a great charge. She takes it to the beach worry free knowing it won't be damaged by the water and sand. This summer we paired it with my speaker when by the pool. We did notice a bit of a skip when we have hers in the house and mine by the pool and they are paired. No biggie. I think it is because the signal is going through the sliding glass doors. Works fine when both are outside. I see one more speaker in the future for my son. Buy this!

    Solid bluetooth speaker

    This speaker works well for what it's designed for, it's got some pretty decent bass, good acoustics, and is very easy to use. If you have 2, you can pair them up with the UE Boom app, but it does seem a lot more cumbersome to do than it should be. I've also noticed that the speakers will start stuttering if there's a fair amount of distance (30 feet or so) and obstructions (walls in particular) between them. Pairing is very simple and the output is strong for indoor or outdoor use. The nice thing is you can put this anywhere it may come into contact with water without worries as well.

    Produces excellent sound AND can take a beating!

    We have had one of these speakers for 3 years already. The original one still sounds, looks, and works great. I have not had to replace any parts, the charging plug has not tore, frayed or stopped working. This speaker has been dropped down flights of stairs, been in the salty ocean water, rolled around in the sand at the beach, as well as play out in the hot beating sun for hours upon hours. The signal strength is better than any bluetooth speaker that I have ever owned. Black Friday I went out and bought 2 more. I love this speaker that much!!

    My 2nd UE Boom speaker

    I bought the 1st generation UE Boom speaker and loved it. When I saw the new one on sale I needed another! This is one of those items that people will ask you "Where did you get that? It's awesome!" Great for around the pool or camping or in your house or anywhere! Turn it on and off with your smart phone and water proof. You can drop it in your pool for up to 30 minutes and it still works! The sound is amazing. You will be amazed at the bass and how loud it can get with no distortion. You don't need two of them but if you do, you can hook them up as stereo. One of those WOW products.....

    UE vs Bose

    Posted
    Tester

    So I bout both UE boom2 and bose soundlink color 2 to compare(hard to do in stores with everyone pushing them all to test) the Bose really surprised me with crisp clean sound and over durability, I just couldn't quite get it loud enough... then I tried this UE boom2.... can't believe how much louder and clean sounding it was, makes the bose sound muffled, and to top it off it's 360 sound and much easier to store, also its waterproof not just water resistant like the bose. I myself will be taking back the bose and keeping this UE boom2.

    We purchased this just to keep in the kitchen or take outside when cleaning cars or playing with the kids in the driveway. It's loud but the sound quality and clarity are just ok. Almost has to much bass and no way to balance out the highs and lows to suite a quality listening experience. We just wanted something durable and it's water proof. It does the job but probably not the best choice of you are looking for something that will wow your listening experience.

    It’s true, this is an excellent speaker for the price point. Distinct, clear sound with high volume and decent bass. It’s not going to shake the table with deep sound but it certainly delivers all around high quality sound. The cylinder form factor is a great space saving design (even fits in cup holders), is rugged with its outer casing and looks clean and modern. We now own two of these along with a couple other UE speakers. The UE brand has surprised me time and again for its quality over other much more expensive options.

    Unable to link two speakers together

    I read a ton of reviews and bought these speakers because they can be linked together. Unfortunately, I didn't test them before going on a road trip with a friend. We followed the instructions and even watched utube video instructions to attempt to link two speakers together. Speakers worked well individually, but that's not why I bought them. I'd recommend that you test them out before venturing out too far from where you can return them. All the other reviews were good on them so I probably got a lemon.

    I auditioned many of the markets best Bluetooth speakers and found the UE-Boom 2 to excel in the areas: Best volume before distortion. (Great for outdoors) Best Clarity at all volumes Best dynamic sound range (Bass response lacks at higher levels) Best battery (15 hours !) Wonderful app that lets you customize your sound. Also turns on and off unit by remote (a Plus) Durability and build : very sturdy and water proof Cons: Lacks a bit in the bass response but attenuates levels to achieve clarity and sonic richness of sound. I feel I made the right choice

    Not good for TV

    If you are using these for music, they are great. I wanted to use them for an outdoor TV and I found that the voice delay that occurs with the video is about one half second or so. Not bad if you are watching the TV from 30 -40 feet away because you cant see the mouth movements, however if you are close enough to see the mouth movements, you will see and hear the difference. That is the only reason I would not recommend them for use with a TV.

    I bought this a long time ago and am just reviewing now as I’m thinking of purchasing a couple more to leave around various rooms. I take this purchase everywhere! I’ve just recently learned to connect it to my laptop for when I’m watching shows, take it with me camping! Anything! I have untrained ears, so I can’t tell much differences in sound unless it’s very obvious. But overall, I think this is great for what it is! And at such a good price point!
