Perfect for parties!
I love this speaker. I was not sure which direction to go on a wireless speaker, did a ton of research and landed on this UE Boom I love this speaker. I was not sure which direction to go on a wireless speaker, did a ton of research and landed on this UE Boom...SO HAPPY I DID! It does all that it claims to with one exception, the battery does not last 15 hours...not even close. That's the reason behind 4 stars, I would have given 5 if the battery lasted a little longer. Other than that, NOT A SINGLE COMPLAINT. The sound is really crisp and LOUD. We bought if for outdoor use mostly and its sound is so powerful that it doesn't get lost outside, it can fill a large outdoor space nicely. It's also pretty durable, we used it last weekend while we were doing yard work...it got splashed a little, fell off of the steps once, was covered in dirt and still performed as well as the day we opened it. Highly recommend. Love it. Great buy. Thinking about buying a second one to pair and get that stereo sound, that must be amazing. …

UE BOOM IS THEE SPEAKER
I host several get togethers, outdoors, indoors and the like. Its simply the best option for music in those formats. Primarily bec I host several get togethers, outdoors, indoors and the like. Its simply the best option for music in those formats. Primarily because of the ability to sync 2 devices together. Also it is extremely durable and water resistant. I had the misfortune of leaving my speakers outside, mounted to tripods and of course it rained. In the morning I was relieved to find them working flawlessly. Again, perfect device for any function requiring music. Even with a large crowd the UE BOOM has the strength and quality of sound to deliver entertainment to the masses. …

Wonderful Wireless Speaker
I wasn't sure on what speaker to get, I was going to buy the Bose, Beat pill or JamBox, but the UE was the best of all of them. It I wasn't sure on what speaker to get, I was going to buy the Bose, Beat pill or JamBox, but the UE was the best of all of them. It is the loudest and clearest of all of them. I have been using for a little of bit of time but it is very useful and load. I bought it to play mostly outside and it is very load. I haven't really use it to the extend of the battery so I really don't know if it does last 15 hours or not like previews review says. …

Great speakers on the go.
I love these speakers, the only issue was trying to listen to music while kayaking in a lake. The water seemed to drown the music I love these speakers, the only issue was trying to listen to music while kayaking in a lake. The water seemed to drown the music so you could only hear it if you were within 5-10 from the speakers. The other UE models appear to have resolved this issue, and are also water resistant.
They have a great battery life, sound is great, and fills the room easily. This is perfect for taking on camping trips. …

I an constantly blown away by how good it s I've had this speaker for about 3 weeks now and have used it both outside and inside. I an constantly blown away by how good it sounds. Bose and Jambox are not even close. It is remarkably loud for a speaker this size. The battery also lasts as advertised up to
15 hours which is plenty for any activity. For someone who is into audiophile quality sound in a portable speaker, this is the best one
out there for under $200. Extremely happy with it. …
