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. …

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.

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. …

What a surprise!
I’ve read a lot of reviews and tried a lot of devices on different places. When I was listening UE Boom in Apple store in San Fran I’ve read a lot of reviews and tried a lot of devices on different places. When I was listening UE Boom in Apple store in San Francisco I wasn’t really amazed by the sound. There was a lot of noise around at that time so I could’t actually try it out in the way I wanted. Generally speaking it played loud and looked so great. I wasn’t sure with buying this speaker, so I told myself that I could try it at home and I would see. Love Apple's returning politics! After I have brought it home and installed it on my small tripod I was ready to test it. I was totally amazed by the clear sound even when playing loud. I'm playing music on it when exercising, listening audiobooks, using it as speakerphone. It is on about 5 hours a day. I love it!
PS: It looks like a big professional microphone when installed on a tripod. …

Clear Full Definition Sound!
I purchased the UE Boom a few months ago for a summer road trip in a classic car with no sound system. I researched and tested sev I purchased the UE Boom a few months ago for a summer road trip in a classic car with no sound system. I researched and tested several of the top rated bluetooth speakers (Bose, Sony, Jawbone, JBL, Philips, Beats...) and the UE Boom blew them all away. The sound is superb, crisp, clear, full range, with excellent definition even in an old car or quiet room. Other brands sound tinny and hollow or artificial with too much bass. The volume can go much louder than any of the others tested; in fact, even on the highway we didn't need full volume. The battery is rated for 15 hrs. much better than any other, it easily lasted all day, actually several days without a re-charge. There's a handy feature to check the battery level by pressing the + & - vol. buttons at the same time and a voice will tell you the percentage of charge left (very cool), and it will shut off automatically to save power if you forget. Charging is easy via mini USB cord; the Bose unit needs it’s own proprietary dock to charge. The design is fabulous, a 2.5" x 7" round cylinder made of durable, shockproof rubber and weather proof fabric that fits in any cup holder or simply sits anywhere with any side up, on/off on the top, easy to find volume on the side, charge and mini plug on the bottom with D-ring to carry it or remove the D-ring and you can mount it on a tripod. The bluetooth range is decent and easily syncs with our devices. You can even pair two speakers; none of the others can do that.
The only negative is the price, comparable to others in it’s class but I think they could sell 10X the units if the price was closer to $120.00. Nonetheless, this speaker exceeds all my expectations!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SPEAKER! …

Great as a Pair in Stereo
I bought two of these to use in stereo with the app. As a single speaker, it's work well and is plenty loud. As a pair in stereo, I bought two of these to use in stereo with the app. As a single speaker, it's work well and is plenty loud. As a pair in stereo, the UE Booms are amazing for their size, portability, and ability to create a soundstage. They are great for vocals and acoustic (most of what I listen to), but are a little light in the base department for other genres of music. For their size, an amazing product. I am getting the 14 hours of battery life with the moderate volumes that a listen at. Highly recommended. If UE could make a small compatible subwoofer for the UE Boom, UE would have an amazing portable music system with full dynamic range. I carry these everywhere when I travel. …

Out of the box, the UE Boom speaker comes with the battery around 80-100 percent charged. After that Out of the box, the UE Boom speaker comes with the battery around 80-100 percent charged. After that, the average charging time is 2-4 hours. To answer your question, it doesn't really matter how long you leave it plugged in for at first, as long as it charges to 100 percent. And since it is a Li-Ion battery it doesn't even have to charge to 100 percent, you can use it whenever. …
