    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.

    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... @@@@@@@

    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.....

    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.

    This is my second one of these speakers. It is a good balance between small size (for portability) and good sound (quality full frequency response). Of course any speaker this small will have limited bass, but this speaker is very listenable over extended periods of time. I like the long battery life too. It plays plenty loud enough to fill a room or for a small party. I also read you can have several of these speakers paired together to play from the same source ... this is huge if have a big space or several rooms where you want the same program source

    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.

    I bought this speaker at a discount which made it that much more desirable. A lot of my peers use the UE boom devices and I can see why. Besides JBLs, UE Booms have a very good sound and can be played loud without sounding too distorted. The battery life is good and base is definitely on the louder end. I wish I would have waited and gotten the UE Megaboom when it went on sale. This is on the smaller size but a good thing is you can pair multiple speakers. I absolutely love the Serendipity color and wish they would offer that color on the larger size.

    The sound that comes from this device is ok. When turned up very loud it sounds distorted and muffled. The battery life is decent. And to charge it, you must do it from the bottom as the charge port is on the bottom. So means you have to lay it down so you can charge it. Also you cannot use the speaker while its charging. You are able to download the UE App on to your smart device, and control settings from there. You can also upgrade firmware for the speaker itself through the app.

    Nice volume but lacking in base output

    I was looking for a wireless speaker that enhanced the appearance of my work area when using it. This speaker met that need. It has great volume, very clear high ends and mid-ranges, but I am disappointed with the amount of base it puts out. My JBL Charge 2 emits better base but not as much overall volume. It charges quickly and lasts all day (at least the 5 hours I am using it daily.) I liked it enough to purchase another one of a different color to give to my daughter so she'd quit swiping mine whenever she got a chance.

    I've had this speaker for roughly a month. I use it on my screened in porch so the water resistance is nice. The app works well and I like that it is one step to shut down/unpair the speaker. The sound quality is excellent and the slightly weak bass can be compensated for by adjusting placement. It is acceptable in all cases though. There is a rudimentary eq as well. The volume is also good. I would definitely recommend this speaker for a good, portable Bluetooth unit.

    I bought this before going on vacation last year. The charge lasts forever. The audio is very good. The Bluetooth range is amazing. While on vacation, I broadcast from my iPad on the 3rd floor balcony to the UE BOOM 2 about 100 feet or more (clear line of sight) to the grounds of the condo we stayed in. No breakup of transmission. Clear sound at low volume (facilitates conversations). Easy to adjust volume. Compact and robust - travels well. I haven't tried ganging with other UE Boom 2 speakers to get even better sound.

    Middle of the Road Bluetooth Speaker

    Good sound and attractive but the max volume level is unimpressive. Despite claims of "up tp 15 hours" in battery life, my battery runs out in about two hours when on maximum volume. Downloadable app to control, among other things, volume and on/off is a nice feature. However, the tap the top of the speaker once to pause the current song, or tap twice to ship to the next one, is very quirky and very hard to get to work correctly.

    Very easy to connect Bluetooth, has very good sound from lows to mid to highs. I have been up to 100 feet away, and still connects to Bluetooth. It's lightweight, holds a long charge and sounds good at low and high volume. Very happy with this purchase, and can be paired with another one, and up to 100 other speakers. So it can supply music wherever the party is. Awesome speaker !!!!! And I will be buying another one to get the true stereo sound. Great product .

    The sound is full, its sturdy, and waterproof which are important specifications since it's being used by the hottub. I connect it with my smart TV and can listen to music, the game and even watch TV while in the hottub. The volume buttons are a big plus and minus signs on the side of the speaker which are really handy, no fumbling. I tested the distance by going around the patio out of line of sight and it still kept connectivity. The price is up there for a single small speaker but in my opinion quite worth it. .

    First I have tried over 40 speakers in every brand. This unit is really good, gets loud, sounds clean, very rugged...but it lacks the low end. The 360 is a plus and is why I chose this over the charge 3, that I returned do to poor sound. I have 3 stars cause the low end lacking and the ridiculous price. This would be a great but at $100- $120 it would be the best at that price...but oh well. Just be aware that these units do have battery issues, its a hit or miss. If it works great, then this unit is a win!

    Great sounds on the highs...a bit poor on bass

    I returned the JBL Charge 3 and purchased this for its portability. I pump it up when I play tennis and it can be heard audibly in an open court. The highs and mids are great. Vocals and instrumentals such as guitar are very pure and clear. The bass sounds lacking and unnatural (JBL Charge 3 definitely wins in this department). I love the little hook on top that you can attach to your backpack. Overall, I'd recommend it for it's volume, quality, portability and durability.

    Great Quality, Bass and Loudness

    This speaker produces loud, good quality sounds with full bass. With using it around 20-30 mins a day, it easily lasts about 2 weeks on a full charge. It's easy to update. One thing though, is when I pair it to my Nexus 6P, the sound cuts out after a couple songs via Pandora. I just have to hit the volume button or pause and play the music again. Not sure if it's a problem with my BOOM 2 or Nexus 6P or Pandora Android app. The music cutting out also happens on my regular BOOM. Both have the lastest firmware.

    Ever since I purchased this speaker, I use it when I'm getting ready, small get togethers, etc. I love that it is not bulky, and still reaches a loud volume with enough bass. I have never had any problems with my bluetooth connectivity. When my sisters and I are in the same place, we join our UE Booms together with the app and the volume range increases significantly both inside and outdoors. Point blank, I recommend this product to those seeking a loud portable speaker at a reasonable cost.

    The UE Boom 2 portable speakers are great for those who like listening to music anywhere. They have great sound quality, plenty of volume, and are as the name says, very portable. They are also easy to operate either in hand or from your Bluetooth paired device. Being rechargeable is another great feature, no need to buy expensive batteries every time you use them. You can pair 150+ of them together, however 1 is enough to fill an average size room with great sound.

    Pros: -Good range in volume -Good bluetooth range -Easy to connect -Plenty of bass sounds Cons: -Sound quality is fair. The range from highs to lows is good, and the voicing is reasonable. However, don't expect this to be a high quality audiophile's dream speaker; it is heavily filtered and can leave you wondering where all the rest of the music is. Still, when playing music it can give a very nice playback for background or accompaniment for events, news, ball games, etc.
