Review: UE Boom 2 Wireless Speaker

Mr Neo Luxe reviews Ue Boom 2 wireless speaker

The music doesn’t have to stop this summer no matter what you have planned thanks to the UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker. Whether you’re heading to the beach, spending time outdoors or evening rolling in mud, the UE Boom 2 is weatherproof and shockproof and can keep up with your social and active lifestyle.

Measuring in at around the same size as a bottle of water, the UE Boom 2 is super portable and can be thrown into an overnight bag, beach bag or handbag without taking up valuable space. For a speaker of its size, it’s incredibly powerful and pumps out 360-degree sound thanks to its cylinder shaped design.  I recently hosted a house party for a few friends outdoors and used the UE Boom 2 as my music source. I can’t tell you how many times I was asked where the music was coming from, and when I pointed to the wireless speaker my friends were in disbelief. It seems good things do come in small packages.

The UE Boom 2 builds on the award-winning UE Boom 360-degree speaker which was first released in 2013, and is 25% louder with a longer wireless range of 100-feet and features a completely waterproof and shockproof design. The battery life has also been extended offering up to 15 hours of playtime which is very impressive for a product of its size and sound quality.

With advancements in technology moving so rapidly, one of my favourite features about this product is the dedicated app for this device, allowing for constant improvements meaning your Bluetooth speaker doesn’t become obsolete in a few months’ time. The app features some really cool features such as the new ‘Party Up’ setting which allows you to connect up to 50+ participating UE Boom wireless speakers simultaneously to amplify your music listening experience. Can you imagine your next house party?

Other cool features of the app include:

  • Block Party: allows you and your friends to play DJ by choosing your favourite tracks from your connected Bluetooth device and playing them across all connected UE Boom speakers
  • Tap Controls: the app allows you to remotely turn on your device, adjust the volume play and pause. Super convenient!
  • Music Alarm: Wake up to your favourite tracks to get you motivated and excited for the day ahead. Simply choose your favourite songs from Spotify, Pandora stations or more, set the time you want to wake up and you’re set.
  • Customizable EQ: We all enjoy music differently so you should have control of your listening experience. Choose from a selection of programmed presets or use the 5-band equaliser to tweak the mids, highs and lows for a customised listening experience.

The UE Boom 2 also is available in a range of bright and fun colours, so all you have to do is choose one which matches your personality. I actually bought a few UE Boom 2 wireless speakers as Christmas gifts and they were very well received. When it comes to purchasing any of type of speaker it really does come down to two things including the sound and battery life, and this product has exceed my expectations – I would recommend this products to friends and family on the market for a Bluetooth speaker.

UE Boom 2 RRP $249.95. Available online from the Ultimate Ears store along with selected JB Hi-Fi stores nationally.
