UE Boom 2 review

 

Minor, but worthwhile upgrades for a modern classic

Brilliant design ; Slightly improved sound ; More robust feature set ; Waterproof

Battery life isn't improved ; Same price

This sequel to the UE Boom nails everything it aims to accomplish. Even better, what used to be the best Bluetooth speaker around for most occasions is now the best one for every occasion, thanks to the waterproofing.

Ultimate Ears UE Boom 2 review: Booming back for the sequel

 

Ultimate Ears has become more of a household name since its inception by then-Logitech (now just Logi), since releasing a variety of Bluetooth speakers to the market. The first UE Boom, released back in 2013, was one of the best small-scale portable...

Great 360-degree sound for this size, decent battery life, full-on waterproofing (now including ports), colourful design, stereo pairing possible, great app with preset equaliser settings

Bass has its limits, not dramatically different from first model, it’s pricey, would like more equaliser controls

The UE Boom 2 takes one of our favourite portable Bluetooth speakers, the original UE Boom, and makes it even better for round two. Full-on waterproofing and sharper sound match with a great looking cylindrical design - but it's more remake than...

Ultimate Ears Boom 2 review

 

There's a new Boom in town and this Bluetooth speaker sounds brilliant...

Rhythmic, expressive sound ; App functionality ; Build

Distortion at maximum volume

The original Boom gets even better, thanks to improved features and performance

UE Boom 2

 

The UE Boom 2 is the follow-up Bluetooth speaker to Ultimate Ears' 2013 UE Boom – a waterproof speaker that made a splash with its insane maximum volume and stellar battery life. It fell slightly flat on audio quality, however.

Super loud maximum volume ; Colourful design ; Good sound quality ; Great Android and iOS app

Distorts at high volumes ; Expensive

Although it isn't perfect, the UE Boom 2 is one of the best rugged portable speakers around.

UE Boom 2 review

 

Improves on the original in every way - the UE Boom 2 is a great ruggedised, waterproof Bluetooth speaker

With the Boom 2, Ultimate Ears has built upon what was already an impressive Bluetooth speaker and improved on the design in some significant areas. More waterproofing, better wireless performance and a louder overall sound make the UE Boom 2 an...

Ultimate Ears UE Boom 2

 

Highly portable with tons of battery life, the UE Boom 2 from Ultimate Ears ticks a lot of boxes, but falls just shy of ticking the top notch sound one.

Well constructed; Great device range; Excellent battery life

Too expensive; Sound a little sub par

It appears then that there is some give and take when it comes to the UE Boom 2. Its R3 500 price tag is a tad too much, but it feels well constructed, can last a full day and works from a fair distance away. As such, the actual speaker performance is...

UE Boom 2 review: Tough, but not the BEST Bluetooth speaker

 

Tough, loud and packed with features, but the compact UE Boom 2 lacks warmth

Despite these niggles, the UE Boom 2 is a decent Bluetooth speaker, with plenty of things to recommend it. It’s tough, looks great, goes very loud and, for casual listening, the sound quality is fine. The speaker is packed with features, too.

Ultimate Ears UE Boom 2

 

The new UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker from Ultimate Ears packs powerful sound in a colorful, rugged, waterproof build.

Full-sounding bass. Get impressively loud for its size. Waterproof

Tap-based gesture controls aren't very reliable. No playback controls besides tapping

Ultimate Ears proved it can put out capable Bluetooth speakers with the UE Boom a couple of years ago, and its output has gotten steadily better with the larger UE Megaboom and the tiny UE Roll. Now the original Boom is getting a refresh, and it's the...

UE Boom 2 review

 

The UE Boom has been a mainstay at the top of CNET's best portable Bluetooth speakers list the past couple of years, so we were very curious to see what UE (Ultimate Ears) had in store for its successor, the UE Boom 2, which retails for $200 (£170;...

The UE Boom 2 is a compact, durable wireless Bluetooth speaker that plays louder than the original Boom and sounds a little better. It's stain-resistant, shock-resistant and now fully waterproof. Battery life is a strong 15 hours, and it can be paired...

Somewhat pricey.

UE has improved upon one our favorite portable Bluetooth speakers with some small but key design upgrades, including full waterproofing and enhanced sound.
