What Hi-Fi

A brilliant portable Bluetooth speaker

We can vouch for it being louder than the original (not that it needed to be), though despite cramming in two larger drivers and passive radiators the Boom 2 still lets distortion creep in at the highest volume levels.  Still, it will happily sprint along trouble-free at 80 per cent volume, whic...More

We can vouch for it being louder than the original (not that it needed to be), though despite cramming in two larger drivers and passive radiators the Boom 2 still lets distortion creep in at the highest volume levels.  Still, it will happily sprint along trouble-free at 80 per cent volume, which is still good for a party. Even three years on since its debut, the tidy Boom 2 delivers a well-rounded performance at a decent price that's worth looking out for.

Great sound can now go underwater

from The Indian Express

The UE Boom 2 is among the best Bluetooth speakers you can now buy. Since it works well both indoors and outdoors, there is some extra value in buying this product. If you love your music wrapped in bass, you will love this even more. Go ahead, buy this one.

A great blend of durability and sound quality

from TechGearLab

The UE Boom 2 is the highest quality of the fully waterproof speakers we tested. It is a great choice if you want extreme ruggedness but want to make as few sacrifices in sound quality as possible.

Astonishing sound quality, easy to carry around

from Absolute Geeks

The UE Boom 2 is certainly an impressive bluetooth speaker. For it’s size, it boasts a powerful sound and is perfect for audiophiles who like to travel with a handheld speaker. The speaker sells for $199 and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a shiny new bluetooth speaker.

A nifty pill-like boombox

from VR-Zone

The UE Boom 2 is a solid pill-like portable speaker that can withstand harsh treatment. It’s highs sound fantastic and its volume is rock solid. The design is absolutely lovely and its battery life is insane. We only hoped that the bass of the UE Boom 2 was stronger for this price tag of S$319.00.

Digit

A delightful speaker

from Digit

The UE Boom 2 is a prolific successor to the original UE Boom. It carries with itself the same design, and great audio performance. The speaker delivers clean, powerful audio that is very well balanced. It is highly recommendable for anyone looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker at this price.

The Indian Express

Sounds good, sounds expensive too

from The Indian Express

Ultimate Ears’ UE Boom 2 speaker definitely has some positives such as long battery life, and a good sound quality. However, I feel the price is a bit on the higher side, and the sound quality is not so exceptional to warrant the same.

Bluetooth speaker in a booming package

from Android Guys

UE brings a bangin' package with the Boom 2. There's a lot going for it - rugged design, easy usability, great battery life, and terrific sound quality. It's not a cheap Bluetooth speaker, but you won't be disappointed if you're willing to invest.

The UE Boom 2 is an excellent speaker in terms of audio quality. I enjoyed listening to music on it because the audio is crisp and clear when listening to all genres of music and did not have any upper-frequency damping issues when bass frequencies were present. It is also small, portable and waterproof. It has great volume and will allow you to connect two UE Boom speakers together (as a stereo pair or doubled up to play the same stream). The Block Party feature is a wonderful added bonus. Using this feature within the UE Boom app, you can have three people pair their devices to the speaker via Bluetooth to share their music.

Minor, but worthwhile upgrades for a modern classic

from TechRadar

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.
