    Good sound, great design.

    I purchased the UE Boom speaker the other day and I must say it has surprised me. It has really good sound, not amazing, but lets remember it's a small portable device so we can't expect home theater sound (of course). For the size though, it is really good. A little muffled in mid-bass range and the bass falls short. However the UE Boom gets very loud, and when it does the sound is still mostly clear! It is easily filling my place with sound at below half total volume though I do wish the volume adjustment had options between levels. The physical design is wonderful. An abrasion resistant fabric surrounds the unit and feels pretty good. The other surfaces have a nice rubberized surface. Buttons are easy to see and use. The free software makes setup a snap and the long battery life is wonderful. I can't wait to get a second unit to pair with for a fuller stereo sound. I will recommend this to everyone!

    you should listen to this before buying something else

    I tend to buy gadgets on a whim and often just to try them out and then not really use them. The UE Boom is really impressive as far as I am concerned. The cost / benefit ratio is immense as the portability and utility as well as sound quality and battery life are really surprisingly good. The advertised 15 hour battery life is not an over estimate. I am even considering a second one to allow me to "double up" which allows you to connect to two simultaneously from your blue tooth device and expand the stereo "foot print".

    So easy to use and switch between devices. Excellent quality, even when i compared to the same priced Bose soundlink.

    I bought one of these little guys on a whim and was very impressed. When I read that you could sync two and get true stereo I did'nt even hesitate on buying a second one. No regrets. They sound great, look great, are easy to setup and battery life for me has gone waaaay beyond 15 hours. If they developed a way to sync more of them and reproduce 5.1 surround i'd buy three more right now! (hint, hint!!!)

    Pleasantly Surprised

    I originally sought another portable speaker but the Apple Store doesn't carry anymore. I took a chance on this speaker without even hearing it and I'm very impressed. Sound is highly subjective -- to each his or her own -- but to my ears the speaker is rich enough for decent bass, crisp enough for decent mids and highs, and loud enough without distortion for many environments. What I like the most is the versatility and the construction. It's rubberized, with a sturdy speaker grill. I have carried to multiple rooms, used in the bathroom (it's splash proof and you can hear over the shower), clipped to a ladder, thrown in a backpack, taken outside, and played in the garage. I've used for audiobooks, Netflix, MLB.TV and At Bat, streaming music services, and music in iTunes (mostly jazz, some alternative and rock). While no speaker this size delivers perfect sound, it's very good and perfect for mobile uses.
