Ultimate Ears Boom 2 is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers that you can buy if you want to invest in a ultraportable, quality waterproof Bluetooth device.

 We will talk about it down bellow but let's see their presentation video which shows us how to setup the UE Boom 2. 


 Ultimate Ears managed to design one of the most colorful, resistant and rugged Bluetooth speakers out there. 

 The sound quality of the speaker is not the best out there, although it is very good, crisp and powerful. It can keep up with the high and brands. The best thing about this is that it is one of the few speakers on the market that can deliver full 360 degrees sound.  The base is pretty strong, vocals and mid range are decent. It can get very loud if needed, but it performs best if it is not pushed to the limit. 

 It comes with an app on which you can control the EQ settings. The app also allows you to connect more than 150 UE speakers together for stereo sound.

 The speaker has a built in microphone so you can receive calls trough it.


The Bluetooth connection is very good providing a range of 100ft if you are in open field. This speakers are NFC-enabled, making the paring process a lot easier and quicker.

 It is claimed that the battery life will last up to 15 hours of playtime but this depends on the volume you listen to music. So you could expect a range between 10 and 13 hours.

 This speaker is IPX7 Rated so it can be submerged under water but keep in mind that it can not float. If you want a floating one UE Boom 3 does provide this feature which I thing is pretty comfortable to have. 

 In terms of build quality, the speaker is made out of highly resistant materials and it is shock proof.

 If you like colorful speakers, UE Boom 2 delivers the biggest variety of colors out there. From purple to black and all sorts of color combination and skins Boom 2 is trying to make our experience more colorful. 

 In the and I can admit that UE Boom 2 is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers on the market made for outdoor use. I highly recommend it. 

 Bellow I am presenting you some alternatives that might suit your needs better if you want the same quality in a smaller or bigger package.
