Ultimate Ears (UE) is a brand I’m not really accustomed with, I have never been involved in reporting or reviewing anything from them until this really cool looking Bluetooth wireless speaker called BOOM. And I would have probably missed this one as well if it wasn’t for some of my readers who took an interest in it and asked me to dig around, and I’m glad they did.

“The sound from the UE Boom sounds richer and clearer compared to the Jambox and Flip.” – A couple of similar reviews got my attention and had to check it out for myself.

This unit is fairly new to the market and customers. And yet it has a 4.7 out of 5 stars user rating on Amazon where it was made available for purchase on May 21, 2013. And even though new, and untested over a longer period of time, everybody seems to be praising BOOM's rich sound.

This unit will definitely be a hit this summer within those that afford and are willing to pay that extra hundred dollars for a wireless Bluetooth speaker that impresses the masses.

  • Versatile, go anywhere shape
  • 360-degree speaker
  • USB port located on the bottom of the speaker

The first feature I need to address is definitely its sound delivery and audio performance. One thing this unit stands out for is the fact that the UE BOOM is a 360-degree speaker. This allows it to "drop" immersive sound in every direction. It goes just as loud as the JBL Flip, but with better clarity and precision of sound over bass power; which most audiophiles love. It goes louder than most units of its size or price point, with amazingly little distortion (maximum sound level 88dBA). And there;s another sound/tech feature that makes the BOOM speaker amazing for any garage, pool or barbecue party. You can wirelessly connect two UE BOOM Bluetooth speakers together in stereo via the UE BOOM app so you can spread the sound louder and further. Really amazing to see this amount out sound coming out of a can-sized unit.

And to make a party even greater without the hassle of streaming everyone's favorite tune, the BOOM allows you to pair to up to 8 Bluetooth devices at once. This way, each of your friends can take turn and share songs from their own devices. The Bluetooth capability works just fine, this allows you switch songs, adjust volume levels and take phone calls from up to 50 feet away. Made especially for smart devices like tablets or smartphones; and the good news is that it's compatible with iOS, Android, Windows and other operating systems. Some users state that it's the best Bluetooth pairing feature they ever tested and works like a charm with ease. The unit is also equipped with USB and Aux ports. And above all, the unit has a 15-hour rechargeable battery (awesome).

I would have to say the BOOM is definitely a fit-for-all wireless speaker because it's so resistant. The product is water and stain resistant alike, which makes it perfect for any type of adventure; really great for outdoorsy people. A colorful acoustic skin with plasma coating gives the UE BOOM its resistant form and awesome look as well. Dimensions:

  • Diameter: 6.5cm (2.6”)
  • Height: 18 cm (7.1”)
  • Weight: 538g (speaker only) 19oz

With everything this unit comes packed with, and the dedicated app for iPhone available, I would have to say this unit will shoot to the top of the bestseller rankings this summer. I for one love it, and wish it came out sooner. Overall a great little device with great power and precision. Totally recommended! Check the link below for current price.
