Overview

Our take on the UE BOOM 2

“It totally rocks,” “This thing is awesome,” and “Great sounds from such a small speaker!” That's what our customers had to say about the original UE BOOM. We can only imagine their reaction to the improved UE BOOM 2. This portable Bluetooth speaker still has the original's 100-foot Bluetooth range and a built-in rechargeable battery that delivers up to 15 hours of operation.  But now there's more.

Kick it up a notch

UE BOOM 2

Get wet, go boom

The UE BOOM 2 isn't just water-resistant — it's waterproof. It can be submerged down to a meter for up to a half an hour, and still rock the party when you fish it out of the pool. And that protective covering is dirt-proof, too, so you can use the UE BOOM 2 at the beach. And it's also shockproof, so if it takes a tumble with you off your BMX bike, your tunes will keep playing.

High-energy sound

Two 1-5/8" full-range drivers give you full-bodied sound, with two 2" passive radiators to kick out the bass. And the system delivers a full 360° soundfield. So no matter where you stand, your music will sound good.

App control

The UE BOOM app lets you stream simultaneously to multiple UE speakers. Mix and match UE BOOM 2s, UE ROLLs, UE MEGABOOMs, and so on. It's all good. Good and loud.

The app also lets you pair two UE BOOM 2 speakers for two-channel stereo. It also lets you adjust your speaker's EQ settings, and even use the UE BOOM 2 as your wake-up alarm. You can download the free app at the Apple® iTunes® Store or Google Play.

Tap to play

When your smartphone or tablet isn't close by, you can use the super simple control buttons on the UE BOOM 2. Those big plus and minus signs on the side aren't decorative – they're the volume controllers. Tap the top of the BOOM 2 to play, tap twice to skip the song. It's that easy.

A bit disappointed

Carol from Carmel, NY on 7/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have another UE Boom and bought another to connect and have "stereo" buyer beware - you do not get stereo. You must add second speaker each time you use it and it is not that easy I have trouble Everytime I try to connect them

Pros: Sounds great, size, battery life

Cons: Connecting speakers must be done Everytime you turn them on...Not as easy as advertized

The UE Boom 2 is one of the greatest sounding bluetooth speakers I've ever heard. Excellent high's and tremendous bass covers the whole sound experience. Seriously thinking about purchasing a second one for some kick "A" stereo sound. Holds a charge very well, cannot think of a single complaint about this little butt kicker. Rock n Roll' Baby!!!

Pros: Absolutely Excellent!!!

Cons: None.

This is a great little speaker for the money. So far it's been very reliable. Battery life is wonderfully long. Very easy to use. Seems rugged and the fact that it's waterproof is a real plus. If you're look for the best sound you probably need to spend more money, but for a convenient, portable, decent sounding little bluetooth speaker, I don't think you can go wrong.

Pros: Compact. Great sounds for its size

Big Portable Sound

James from Plymouth Meeting, PA on 6/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So, this is my second bluetooth speaker with my first being the Big Jambox. What I most like about the JamBox is the great sound that fills my large backyard with tunes. What I most dislike is the fact that it is really for indoors and has taken some dings moving it around. The UE Boom 2 while having a smaller footprint has every bit the sound quality of the JamBox. It is a easier to transport, takes a bit of a beating, and is both dust and water resistant. If you are looking for a great bluetooth speaker in the middle/premium price range, this is it. Buy this with confidence and enjoy!

Pros: Great Sound, Portability, Dust/Waterproof, Battery Life

Cons: Lack of track controls on speaker

Great Purchase

Reggie from Birmingham, AL on 5/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have bought & owned numerous wireless speakers but the UE BOOM 2 is AWESOME. I put it outside while I was washing my truck and one of my neighbors couldn't believe the sound coming from this speaker. He thought I had put a speaker outside from my home stereo. You can download the app and customize the sound to your own personal taste. I'm so glad I made my purchase while it was still on sale. I was a little skeptical at first and waited until the last day of the sale before I decided to get it. I'll probably get another one and pair them for stereo sound, but if I don't I'm more than satisfied with the one speaker.

Cons:

The absolute BEST!

Dorothy from Houston, TX on 5/28/2017

LOVE IT! Great sound and so simple to use. This is my second one after my first got lost in a move. I bought one for my daughter and she loves us too for use by the pool. My husband bought other brands that don't even come close to sound and ease of use. The battery lasts for hours.

Pros: Great sound, volume, battery life

Cons: None

Nice compact speaker

Robert from Lakewood, OH on 5/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have already used it for a couple of "porch parties" and everyone was impressed with the sound quality. Yes, it doesn't have major bass, but when everyone is chatting and this is used as "background" to help set the mood of the gathering, it does a great job. Only slam would be I would have preferred a paper manual for the set up, but after downloading the app, I was able to get the speaker up and running without difficulty.

Pros: Good sound Long play time

Cons: Bass quality is good -- No paper manual; app a bit unclear

UE Boom 2..Small size, great sound

Terry from Dickson, TN on 5/11/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is an impressive little speaker and very versatile. It has a great sound for its size. wish it had more bass but it just cant for something this size. My only complaint as with most electronics is the lack of proper operating instructions. As with most products you have to use the web for information.

Pros: Lots of features..waterproofing and durable..Pretty good sound for its size

Cons: A little pricey and lack of proper operating instructions...had it for a couple weeks,no issues so far

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are absolutely great! They hold a charge really well, charge quickly when you do run out, and sound great. The bass on the speakers is strong but not overwhelming. The sound really fills the room and is also perfect for outdoors since it's waterproof. It comes with an app so you can turn the speaker on/off with the app and see the battery level right from your phone. If you're looking for a bluetooth speaker that you can use anywhere with great sound, then this is the one I'd recommend for you!

I bought two of these, red one for my wife and blue one for my son. They both love the speaker, surprisingly the speaker put out very good sound, deep bass and when we pair both of them together in the spa, the sound is even more awesome. I highly recommend it!

Cons:

Alex from Los Angeles, CA on 5/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

LOVE THE BOOMS! They double up and are small and portable which we needed. They also put out great sound, couldn't be happier-

Pros: Small, portable, good sound quality, loud, sleek, easy to use once you get them going, plenty of battery life for day to day

Cons: Setting up the Double up feature was difficult at first but once we sorted it outcome it's been a breeze. No complaints at all otherwise.

UE Boom 2 is fantastic. A solid piece of equipment, easy to use, easier to set up. Waterproof and the clarity is GREAT!

Pros: Easy, solid, clear.

Cons: Absolutely none! I'd buy again and recommend to anyone.

Deb from Verplanck, NY on 4/23/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would give a 4.9. The only problem is since it's Bluetooth through your phone or i-pad, if you get an email. It disrupts the music for a second..other than that, I LOVE the speakers. I bought two of them and paired them so I could play music in multiple rooms.

Pros: Good sound, portable, outdoor use, pair with another speaker

Cons: Incoming email notifications disrupt music.

Great Sound

Phil from Chandler, AZ on 4/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall great product. Have recommended to friends. Room filling sound with no distortion. Exactly what I wanted. Primary use in the bathroom.

Pros: Great battery life. Use the app to remotely turn on and off multiple speakers. Really good sound considering the size. Waterproof is perfect for the bathroom. When 2 speakers are in a Party they work very well in stereo sound!

Cons: When using 2 at once, even though I have "Sticky Party" or whatever the settings called Enabled, only 1 speaker turns on, then I need to add the second to the Party. Sometimes twice if it doesn't react quick enough.

Quality device

BIG sound, tiny package

Jaymes from Brooklny, NY on 3/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While the sound is great, we have experienced distortion and connection issues when paired with an LG G4 (the phone of the person the Boom 2 was purchased for), however it works well with an LG G5, iPad, and Mac book pro. Setup is very easy, and volume is very good for such a small device.

Pros: Good, full sound Easy setup Holds charge well

Cons: Connection issue with older Android device (LG G4)

Great for the beach

This amazing sound machine is now a must have office tool

John from Walnut, CA on 2/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There is a lot of technology packed into this little sound machine. There are some notable improvements over the original. Paring is simple, app control is easy and the speaker phone feature has made this my new office tool. But the truly amazing thing is the quality of the sound that comes out of this little cylinder!

Pros: Love the size and the features and the sound quality

Cons: Haven't identified on yet

FRANK from Jacksonville, FL on 2/15/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is an amazing little Bluetooth speaker. You can take it anywhere and only be worried about the device you are streaming from; will play underwater. It is very loud and compact in size. I bought one for everybody in the house and we can sink them together to all play from the same source. When all four of us get together, we are a force to be reckoned with!

Pros: Capable to sink with up to 100 other Booms to play from a single source Long battery life from single charge Small but loud Durable Waterproof

Cons: Not cheap

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Connected to iMac via bluetooth. After playing consistently for a few minutes, connection became bad and was intermittent with skipping. Contacted UE service via phone. Spoke to person who told me that when connecting with a desktop, I needed to manually download software updates. I did this, but had no improvement. Connected via bluetooth to an iPad to make sure it was not a bluetooth issue with my desktop. Same unacceptable result. Began slow back and forth correspondence via e-mail with UE service who made suggestions to try things I had already tried. I gave up and was pleased with Crutchfield service allowing me to exchange the speaker for a different product. Would rate this zero stars if possible. Bad product; bad service from manufacturer.

Christopher from Houston, TX on 1/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really like these little speakers! I initially bought two, and ended up adding a couple more. My family makes fun of me because I carry them around the house with me so that I can listen to music while I wash the dishes, brush my teeth, shave, etc. I took them outside for a New Year's barbecue, and everyone enjoyed the music from four directions. I also plan to regularly use these around the pool when the weather warms up since they're waterproof. The Android app can be a little finicky when connecting to all speakers in PartyUp mode (remember, I have four), but I'm always able to get it working. UE regularly pushes out app and firmware updates, so I'm satisfied that they are actively working on any bugs and even adding new capabilities. Don't expect to get big bass out of such small speakers, but they do sound good and get plenty loud. Battery like is awesome. And using my phone to remotely turn them on and off and control the volume is incredibly nice. Yeah, you can get cheap bluetooth speakers for a lot cheaper, but you won't be able to control more than one and you won't have all the wonderful features.

Pros: Pretty good sound for such small speakers - they get plenty loud Excellent battery life Remote on/off and volume from your phone Keep adding more speakers in PartyUp mode for bigger sound Good vendor support with app and firmware updates

Cons: Lack of bass - as if you could get much bass out of these tiny things Apps requires some patience to get all speakers going in PartyUp mode I wish I could use four speakers in a dual-stereo configuration I need a six-pack beer bottle carton to carry them around conveniently. ;-)

Limited value

John from Scottsville, VA on 1/11/2017

I have three Windows 10 computers and two Android phones. This speaker has beautiful tone for its size but works only with one of the phones. Windows10 computers, even with a plug-in Bluetooth device, are not able to pair with it. I went through all the instructions and documentation as well as several troubleshooting guides, all to no avail. I will not return it since I'm sure that someday I'll figure it out, but I am not an electronics wizard and I have neither time nor the inclination to spend any more hours trying to solve the problem. I will be able to use it in my 20 year old truck along with the phone. So it's not a total loss.

Pros: Fantastic sound, portable. Great for casual use.

Cons: Will not work with my Windows 10 computers which was my main purpose in buying this speaker.

Impressive

Paul from Youngstown, OH on 1/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received the UE BOOM 2 about a week ago and have used it pretty much every day. It was a replacement for a Klipsch KMC 1 that has good sound and volume, but was just too bulky for my use. The BOOM 2 has an app that makes powering on and off a breeze and connecting to my iPhone easy, it also tells you the battery percentage. The micro USB charging port is much more convenient than the Klipsch non USB charging port. After 10 hours today, the battery died for me on the BOOM 2. The Klipsch must have a massive battery as it has never died on me. I will have to watch the Battery meter and recharge as necessary. The bluetooth has very good range. The sound quality and volume surprised me for a speaker this small. I run and drive mobile cranes and they are loud when driving and volume is essential. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to hear it but that is definitely not a problem. So far the UE BOOM 2 is an impressive small speaker with some great added features.

Pros: small size good volume and sound UE app micro USB charging port

Cons: None

Great mono, terrific stereo

Dean from Maryland on 1/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the size of these speakers, the sound is amazing. I have zero complaints with the sound generated from my phone. But even more amazing is the sound I get with two connected UE Boom 2 speakers in stereo mode using the UE Boom app. That combination deliveries an extremely nice portable stereo system that I can quickly setup in any room, allowing me to listen to my music without headphones. And because of the extended Bluetooth range, the "stereo" controls are next to me no matter where I'm located in the room. I never thought I'd get that from Bluetooth speakers, but the UE Boom 2 really does deliver.

Pros:

Cons:

Enjoying versatility

Great sound, very impressive for size. Have it hooked to echo dot and it's automatic when I turn it on. Maybe it's not for the 1% audiophile, but works great for my needs. Only complaint is the 100 ft supposed range. Loses connection at far end of house. Like the red collar- also have boom 1.

Pros:

Cons: 100ft.?

Love it! Easy to use and setup. Nice size for portability. Great sound plus equalizer settings. Alarm clock function is nice (use the App). Received this for Christmas and haven't charged it since. Using it a bit every day. "Tap" controls are a little harder (like "hits"). Don't really like that part. Otherwise, impressive!

Pros: Size Ease of use/Setup Blends in with decor

Cons: Shape is nice & good size but might not be stable on moving objects (round) but very nice on solid/still surfaces.

Great sounding speaker. The bass is not that great but is expected from a speaker of that size. It is super loud and can fill a whole room with your music. I use it in the shower without any problems.

Cons: Not as much bass as the Megaboom

Great little speaker

Bill from Harrisonburg, VA on 12/19/2016

I love this little speaker. I picked up a UE Roll this spring and took it everywhere so when the Boom 2 went on sale over black Friday picking one up was a no brainer. It's got a nice big sound in a relatively small package. The charge lasts for a long time and it fits into most water bottle pockets (and the bottle holder on my bike). The sound quality is surprisingly good out of such a small speaker and it gets really loud if you need to hear it over a lot of noise. The customizable EQ via the UE Boom app is a great feature, too.

Pros: Battery life, sound quality, custom EQ, waterproof

Cons: None

Amazing sound at 75% volume

Adam from IA on 10/18/2016

*I'll preface this review by saying, I haven't spent much time with the equalizer and it may help my sound quality* This thing is loud. Really loud. The only downfall I have found is sound quality starts to get pretty distorted at full volume. Now, when do you need to listen at full volume? I honestly couldn't tell you when that would be needed. At about 75% it is enough to fill about 600 square feet of our house (open kitchen/living room). I've also watched some Netflix on it and the "surround sound" quality is pretty spectacular. You can hear conversations great and rainfall in the background is crystal clear. Again, at 75% volume this thing is a 5* plus. However, one of it's "calling cards" is volume and at max volume, it's more of a toy than musical brilliance. Would I buy it again? I would. I think with some playing around and maybe even adding a 2nd one, it will be nearly perfect.

Love the stand up 360 degree design. Excellent for a golf cart cup holder. App is very easy to use. Great volume, not a ton of bass, so unless you are listening to hip hop or techno it really does a great job. Battery life is great so far. Haven't had to test waterproof functionality yet. Bluetooth has been very good, passing thru multiple walls in my home.

Pros: Great size and cylinder design very useful. Nice volume and range on Bluetooth

Cons: not much bass

Great sound in a small package

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sounding blue tooth speakers. I am still learning how to use these speakers. I bought two thinking about pairing them together. I had problems getting the two paired but figured out the issue. Best things out these speakers are size, portability, battery rechargeable. I like the control features and the colors (cherry bomb and brain freeze)

Pros: Size, portability, rechargeable, control features and colors.

Cons: Pairing can be difficult even with the lock up option in settings.

UE Boom 2 for Home Office

Jay P from Memphis, TN on 9/26/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to use in my home office, primarily for a speakerphone, but also to listen to music. The sound quality is good and it works well as a speakerphone. I will be buying a second unit to create stereo sound at my desk.

Pros: Compact, great battery life and excellent as a speakerphone.

Cons: Charging port is on bottom, so you must turn upside down or lay on its side to charge the battery.

Love, Love this wireless speaker. Traveled to visit family on its 1st use and played it for three evenings with a minimum use of 12 hours without ever having to charge it. Quality of the sound is terrific. Would definitely recommend this.

Pros: All great so far, have been using this speaker on and off for several weeks now.

Cons: None so far.

Amazing speaker

Eddie from Bethesda, MD on 8/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It has been a great speaker all around. Easy to connect. Fun color. Great sound. Love the water and shock resistance aspect. Battery life has been impressive. There are improvements to be made on the app, but that is minor and not the reason to not buy the speaker.

Pros:

Cons: The pause/play and skip tap is very nice but only works if you pick up the speaker. If you have the speaker standing on it's own this does not work. Truly not a big deal.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty solid speaker in this class. I like the thought of pairing and would probably do 2 or these before buying the Mega in my opinion. My only con is the 360 sound claim. There is a very definite sounds difference if you move around the speaker, the obvious spot being the side with the volume control. All in all a good speaker, I will most likely grab another fairly soon.

Fantastic portable bluetooth speaker. Was able to sync with my Samsung smartphone in about 2 seconds, fantastic sound for its size, lots of bass, very little distortion at even loud listening levels. Sounds better than speakers costing twice as much. Great value, especially since I got it on sale.

Pros: Can't say enough about how good this speaker sounds. Very portable, everything is well thought out. Could not be happier about the purchase.

Cons: None at all

Impressive Sound In a Small Package

Nick from Canton, MI on 7/8/2016

There is no other portable speaker at this price point that I would recommend. It is portable enough to take with you in the water bottle holder of a backpack making it a true lifestyle speaker. On top of that, you do not have to worry too much about the speaker because of its solid build quality as well as its water resistant properties. As an audiophile, very few things impress me. Although a Bluetooth speaker will not ever match the capability of a mutli-component stereo, the sound is impressive coming from such a small package. The highs are not tinny and the bass is relatively punchy. There is very little I can complain about besides the set-up. The app that you must download in order to adjust settings and update speaker firmware is not as simple to use as I would like, but you do not have to use it in order to operate the speaker. Overall, I can not think of a portable speaker better than this one in all of the above categories. You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Great sound from something so small. Capability to link to another speaker for stereo sound. Water resistance. Priced competitively.

Cons: The required app needs touching up. No paper copy of instructions included.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My husband and I have the earlier version and love it. My dad always asked to borrow ours so we got him a new one for Father's Day. He LOVES it! Thinks it's the greatest thing ever. We had it at the pool the other day when it started raining and we didn't worry because it's waterproof. He also loves loud music- I'm talking loud- and this speaker sounds great loud (his neighbors must hate him). No complaints here- batter life is good- easy to connect and use, great volume, durable and nice design.

Pros: All good!

Cons: N/A

Bought this after reading reviews. Learned a valuble lesson go to a store and listen. Waterproof great. Battery life great. Portability great. Sound even cranked up base and loudness disapointing clarity with no distortion but my bravia pro is a much better speaker for less money. Replaced it with riva turbo x which is best bluetooth speaker out there for $100 more its worth it. If you want a waterproof speaker with just average volume with very little base for less money buy this one. Went to best buy your better off with the bose in the same price range

Pros: Waterproof and portability

Cons: No strap like bravia pro Mediocre volume and bass

I am totally pleased with the performance of UE Boom 2, both indoors and outside. For a small portable speaker, it delivers sound quality, loudness and richness of a much larger speaker system. And the design is honest - simple and elegant - yet cool too!

Pros: Set-up was a breeze, app is simple and intuitive.

Cons: None

Chris C from Fishersville, VA. on 6/7/2016

I have only used it a couple of times but so far so good. Took it to the beach and it was loud enough that we all could hear it and it sounded great. It is small enough to put in luggage (I kept the container to carry it in as well).

Pros: Quality, sound and ease of set up.

Cons: None so far

Love it!

Kenneth L from Sapulpa, OK on 6/1/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for use on my Hobie Tandem Island Kayak and is PERFECT for what I needed. This thing fits perfectly in the cup holder, is PLENTY loud and sounds great! Being waterproof and having a small d-ring for a tether make is the perfect setup for me. And to top it all off,,,, it sound really great too! While this has slightly less bass than my Bose soundlink II, it is still plenty sufficient, and is actually louder than the Bose. Highs are crisp and clear, mids are excellent, lows are good with no distortion. Excellent speaker, much better than expected!

Pros: Waterproof, long battery life, excellent sound quality, d-ring for tethering, or removable for tripod mount, fits in a cup holder, excellent bluetooth range.

Cons: Slightly less bass than a Bose, but still a solid 9 out of 10 for sound quality. It's not free.

Tried many different speakers for the outside and these provide food sound to all the areas around the pool playground and basketball area. They hold up great in the weather, they have been through south texas heat amd rain (yes south texas is getting rain). It paired easily with my Samsung Galaxy. I wanted to test this speaker first before buying a second to keep the sound disbursed away from the common sitting area. Will let you know how the pairing with a second speaker goes.

Pros: Sound Long battery life Portability Easy to set up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i was very impressed.the clear sound and plenty of volume.water proof and the shape is great,the colors are great,and perfect size for portability...However,as clear and loud as it is,it lacks bass.it has some,but for my purposes(using in my house)i prefer something less portable with more bass,witch is the trade off.i was going to trade it for the Megaboom which has more bass,but is bigger,so,for me in that case i went for the Riva Turbo X which i was told has the best balance of clear highs,loudness and bass.i"am happy with the Riva but almost want to keep the Boom2 for the beach ect.almost,because i don't want to spend that much,at least right now.

Pros: for the size,fantastic clear highs and treble.fantastic volume.Outstandin Design and colors.

LCan from California on 1/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hate to have to give a review today, as I am still hoping that UE Customer Service comes through with a fix for my (their) problem, as follows: I found the setup for the UE Boom 2 to be very easy. I first installed it on my new iPad using the app found via a search at the App Store. No problem! I then installed it on my iPhone 6S using the same process and getting equally good results the first time I tried. Finally, I installed it on my new Mac. The speaker paired easily on all three devices, and it started right up. I tested the sound using music from the Pandora app on all devices. The sound was great, the volume is way plenty, and the range is surprising good. I was very happy! That afternoon, I noticed a message on my iPad saying that the UE app had a new update, so I updated it. I followed the instructions, which essentially did a firmware update to the speaker. After that...tahdah...nothing worked again. I visited the UE forums and tried everything to solve the problem, including "Factory Reset," which also didn't work. Finally, I got hold of Customer Service, and the nice lady there took me through her usual troubleshooting routine...but nada. She then had me plug my speaker in with the factory power cord. This time the factory reset process actually worked...it just didn't fix the problem. Finally, after putting me on hold and talking with some techs, she emailed me a link to the latest firmware update, and she had me install it on my Mac...nada...more later!

Pros: Sounds great...works great!

Cons: Tech glitches have spoiled the experience...but hopefully that's temporary. Do NOT do the update...at least for awhile.

On sale, good reviews, sound quality [ BRIAN  Aug 15, 2016 ]
Checked it out in a store to test sound. Holy cow, could not believe how loud it was, and it was only playing a pre-loaded sample song. Decided it would more than adequate to hear my hard rock and metal tunes while barbecuing in my backyard. [ Robert  Jun 15, 2016 ]

It was a toss up between the UE Boom 2 and the JBL Charge 3. Went with the UE Boom 2 because of the NFC feature and I read too many reviews citing issues with pairing the JBL with Apple products. [ BRIAN  May 09, 2017 ]
Price was about to go up and to play with the ones my friends already have. [ FRANK H  Feb 02, 2017 ]

6 questions already asked

yes,most water bottles are thicker than the speaker [ WESLEY D  May 31, 2016 ]
It definitely fits in the water bottle cage, but you may want to bend the cage or secure it with something so it does not fall out if you are on trails or rough terrain. [ Leslie  May 31, 2016 ]
Yes it will fit. [ Wayne  May 31, 2016 ]
It fits the water bottle pocket on my backpack [ John  May 30, 2016 ]
I am not familiar with the term AAC. However I can't tell you that we use this boom box with our iPhones without any problem. My husband travels frequently and always takes this with him so that he has music that he can stream wherever he is. The sound quality for a box this size is awesome. I hope that helps [ Martha  Mar 31, 2017 ]
To pair 2 speakers you need to get the app. It should walk you through it from there. It can be a little tricky sometimes and you won't be able to do it if one of the speakers needs an update,so make sure they both have all the current updates before you get started.good luck [ BRAD M  Sep 18, 2016 ]
Download the UEBoom app from the Apple App Store (not sure if Google Play store has it). Open the app in your phone and press the "Double Up" button. [ IMRAN  Sep 18, 2016 ]
Use the android or IOS app [ Jamestown Klall  Sep 17, 2016 ]
A: If you have two UE BOOM speakers, you can use them together to amplify your sound. Here's how: Connect your first UE BOOM to your Bluetooth device. Open the UE BOOM app and tap the "Double Up" icon. Turn on your second UE BOOM. Tap Start in the UE BOOM app. Press the Bluetooth connect button on your second UE BOOM twice quickly. The two UE BOOMs will now be connected to your Bluetooth device. "Double Up" modes The UE BOOM app lets you choose between these two "Double Up" modes: Double - Expands the audio to the two UE BOOM speakers for double the sound. Stereo - Turns the two UE BOOM speakers into Left and Right speakers (you can also swap left and right assignments using the app). NOTE: The "Double Up" feature can only be used with one connected Bluetooth device at a time. Also, there're videos in YouTube [ Stephen  Sep 17, 2016 ]
I use the UE Boom2 and I'm happy with it. It has lots of volume and the battery lasts incredibly long. The sound quality is fine for what it is, namely a very portable speaker [ Guenter  Aug 07, 2016 ]
I own both and prefer the sound of the UE Boom 2. Although some feel that the Soundlink has more bass I find the bass on the Soundlink makes the sound slightly unclear to my ear. The nice thing about the UE is you have adjustment with the EQ if you choose. Both are good choices, I prefer the UE ,for the sound quality, the many features and its ease of use [ Stephen  Aug 07, 2016 ]
I can't say I would recommend one or the other because I'm not familiar with the Bose sound link mini. All I can say is the UE boom2 is a good speaker, The 360 sound sounds great! [ BRAD M  Apr 09, 2016 ]
HaVing used both units, I found the UE Boom 2 to sound bettER overall. The pairing to the UE was always easier than the Bose, the app is very good and allows you to adjust the sound through the EQ. The waterproofing is add bonus for when you are caught outside Ina fast rain storm and there are many things to get under cover. [ JOSEPH C.  Apr 08, 2016 ]
UE Boom sound quality indoors and out is so good that I have bought four. One for myself and three as gifts. [ Peter  Apr 08, 2016 ]
I spent a lot of time comparing and listing to the same two units and purchased the Ue boom. My son has the Bose and we compar them often. The boom is louder and sounds great. The Bose does have more base but I still like the boom overall. I use it often. In my garage when working and it more then fills the three car room with great sound. Hope this helps [ Robert  Apr 08, 2016 ]
UE BOOM 2 its just perfect [ Stephen  Apr 07, 2016 ]
No [ Tina  Jul 09, 2017 ]
