    Amazing rich sound!

    • Written by from Pepeekeo

    I purchased this speaker at the Ala Moana (HI) Apple Store yesterday and could not be happier!!

    The sound is clear, full, and rich. The speaker itself is stylish and elegant. And the volume one can get from it is amazing.

    What a surprise!

    • Written by from Mlada Boleslav

    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!

    • Written by from Vancouver

    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

    • Written by from Anahola

    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.

    THE BEST ACCESSORY INVESTMENT

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    I ABSOLUTELY love this speaker! It packs huge, clear, and full sound into such a tiny package. It is loud enough to fill our entire house with sound and does not crackle as other speakers do when turned all the way up. Its battery life is INCREDIBLE and I sync it to all my devices! It's also one of my new favorite things because I can take it into my car and listen to music on my phone, which I normally couldn't do because my car is really old. The speaker is great for backyard parties or hanging at the pool, beach, or park. It isn't the cheapest one on the market, but after shopping around, it proved to have the best volume, size, and clarity than all the other speakers (WARNING: DONT BE FOOLED AND JUST BUY SOMETHING BECAUSE IT HAS A CERTAIN BRAND NAME, ALWAYS CHECK THE QUALITY FIRST). I almost went with the Beats Pill, but it honestly only has 1/2 the volume of this one and is roughly the same cost. I hope this helps!

    UE BOOM IS THEE SPEAKER

    • Written by

    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

    • Written by from Bensenville

    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.
