Crutchfield: UE portable Bluetooth speakers
From Logitech: UE Boom 2.0 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Our take on the Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Kick it up a notch
“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 Ultimate Ears BOOM. We can only imagine their reaction to the improved Ultimate Ears 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.
Get wet, go boom
The 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 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.
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.
The app also lets you pair two BOOM 2 speakers for two-channel stereo. It also lets you adjust your speaker's EQ settings, and even use the 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 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.

- Hands-Free Communication: The UE Boom 2 features Bluetooth HFP and an integrated dual microphone so you can use the UE Boom 2 as a wireless speakerphone for your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone (iPhone & Android compatible). The UE Boom 2 will automatically pause the music to let you take your phone call. You can even use Siri (for Apple iPhone) or Google Voice (for Android smartphones) to make a call. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the UE Boom 2.
Multi-Device Pairing + NFC: Up to 8 Bluetooth enabled devices can be paired with this unit and up to 3 Bluetooth audio devices can be connected simultaneously in Block Party Mode. Block Party Mode lets you and your friends take turns wirelessly streaming and playing the music you love through the speaker.

Once paired, the UE Boom 2 will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 100').

- Remote Control: Use the app as a remote control to adjust the volume and power on and off the UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker.

You can then say a command to play your music, dial a phone number, check the weather, etc (commands are based on those supported by Siri).

You can use Alexa to listen to music from Amazon Music, iHeartRadio and TuneIn as well as get web search results such as sports scores, weather, reports, jokes and Flash Briefings (Click here for the latest Alexa skills). You will need to already have or setup an Amazon Alexa account. If you've previously used Google Voice, activating the Alexa will disable this feature.

I've had a UE Boom (first model) for several years. It has handled a lot of abuse from me and i've been very pleased with the sound and volume. The Blue Tooth has been very reliable until now which is why I'm replacing the Boom with Boom2. Nothing lasts for ever but Boom has given me good service and am hoping Boom2 will do the same.

Sons recommendation [ Paul A. Dec 15, 2017 ]
Heard it at Best Buy and was very impressed with the sound. They were selling it for $10.00 cheaper in blue but I buy 99% of my items from Crutchfield and wanted to continue buying here. Looking forward to a larger price reduction on the OLED55C7P or the OLED55E7P, then I can consider buying one of those two....which would be my 3rd or 4th large screen TV I would have bought from Crutchfield. Thank you for your service. Mark [ MARK Dec 12, 2017 ]

This is a really great bluetooth speaker. The sound quality is excellent, even at high volumes. It is easy to set up and use and the UE app is a great addition for further control, especially when you have more than one (this is my second one).

8 questions already asked
the speaker works with bluetooth [ Daniel Feb 02, 2018 ]
I don't know about that. [ Iulian Feb 02, 2018 ]
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 have the same problem but I thought it was just cause I had dropped it so many times [ Pablo May 14, 2018 ]
I wish I could answer this for you, but I've never tried it. Too scared to see what would happen. [ Tina Jul 09, 2017 ]
Yes it does. I use it with my iPad. [ LEONARD E Nov 16, 2017 ]
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 ]
7 answers I'm deciding between the UE Boom 2 and the Bose Soundlink Mini II. Waterproof and pairing multiple units does not matter to me. What is important is sound. I want one that can sound good inside a room in my house as well as outside on my deck. Which one would you recommend? [ Joe Apr 07, 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 ]
