Overview

Our take on the UE ROLL 2

Like its predecessor, the UE ROLL 2 is a rugged Bluetooth speaker with an attached marine-grade bungee cord to keep it close during extreme outdoor adventures. But there's a significant difference, as I discovered when I turned it on. The UE ROLL 2 is loud —15% louder than the original ROLL. Good thing, too. With a Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet, it means you can actually hear the ROLL 2 at its maximum distance from your paired smartphone.

Play it loud

Like its predecessor, the UE ROLL 2 is a rugged Bluetooth speaker with an attached marine-grade bungee cord to keep it close during extreme outdoor adventures. But there's a significant difference, as I discovered when I turned it on. The UE ROLL 2 is loud —15% louder than the original ROLL. Good thing, too. With a Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet, it means you can actually hear the ROLL 2 at its maximum distance from your paired smartphone.

Play in the water

The ROLL 2 isn't just splash-proof — it's completely waterproof. So you can use it at the lake, at the ocean, or on the river. The ROLL 2 comes with its own inflatable floatie ring. The ring keeps the ROLL 2's speaker face-up, so you can keep the music playing as it floats beside you in the pool.

A circle of sound

The ROLL 2 creates a spacious 360° soundfield — no need to stand right in front of it to hear your music loud and clear. Two 3/4" tweeters deliver clean highs and upper mids, while the sturdy 2" driver fills in the low frequencies.

More fun with the ROLL 2 app

The free downloadable UE ROLL 2 app for iOS® or Android™ devices makes the ROLL 2 even more fun. First, it lets you pair two ROLL 2s together. You can go for stereo sound or just select Double Up and double the volume. Select Block Party mode, and you and two friends can simultaneously pair devices with the ROLL 2, so everybody gets a turn DJ'ing. You can also change EQ setting and volume remotely. And the app also turns the ROLL 2 into your personal alarm clock.

The best portable speaker I have ever seen, bought, and used. I will never forget about the vivid colored and that it's waterproof! It also can basically be hooked anywhere. I mean, anywhere! Only 80$ I might get another one.

Love the all-weather durability, and it pumps out pretty loud sound. Not as crisp with metal music, and bass can be weak with electronic, but certainly a champ against its relative competitors.

AMS from Bridgeton, MO on 10/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All I was looking for was a decent bluetooth speaker and this has surpassed my expectations. Going in I didn't put much effort into research, but this is as advertised. The battery has lasted me all day camping, the volume is loud and clear enough for a average sized party, and so far has held up to some not so gentile abuse. For something this small you can't go wrong.

Pros: Great sounding, portability, durability.

Cons: Nothing as of yet

Best Portable, Luggable Bluetooth Speaker For Your Buck

JDH from Washington, DC on 7/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There's nothing more you could want out of a portable bluetooth speaker. It's small enough to throw in any bag, tough enough to take a bunch of falls, waterproof enough to bring to the pool or beach (or as is more likely, into the shower), and loud enough to turn a backyard into a party.

Pros: portable, tough, waterproof, good sound

Cons: not as loud

Selected these speakers for the water-proof feature and that the reviews supported the quality I was seeking, while still allowing for being sturdy - nice that this handy easily portable size, the 'cool looks', ability to pair two speakers also comes with being 'rugged' - did not need to sacrifice quality to get the full feature set at a reasonable price.[ Danielle  Sep 18, 2016 ]
