Sweet Speakers!

The best I've ever listened to in this small of a package...!

  • from Pickering, ON

Small but mighty

small size, perfect to bring camping and to outdoor activities, big sound. Amazing speaker, brought one to a family party then got requests to buy one as for everyone. Charges quickly and connects perfectly to my phone. They even have great customer service ( inquired when my orginigal special edition didn’t come with a charging cube, only the cord. This one comes with both.)

takes 20 minutes to charge enough to let me start playing music

  • from Nanaimo, BC

Listen before you buy

After hearing the bose revolve...I thought wow tech has come along way...I was looking for a cheaper option...ordered this online after reading the flood of great reviews, however this hasn’t reached that tech standard yet...but in fairness it is smaller than the revolve. returning.

Not For Audiophiles

Bought this on sale as a Christmas present for myself. Used it for about 10 minutes and put it back in the box. I am not happy with the poor sound quality, and I'm not overly picky about sound quality. There is almost no bass, even after adjusting the EQ in the app. It has some great app driven features and has some potential, like connecting several at once. Just can't deal with the sound quality. My daughter has a Bose Soundlink Color that's about four years old. It's been dropped and splashed on and in a direct song to song comparison, the Bose sound is much better and louder. I will be exchanging the Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 for the Bose Soundlink Color II as soon as possible.

Limited Lifetime

As a repair shop I feel the need to warn people. -Its very difficult to get a replacement battery. -The charging circuit on the main board does not last more than 1.3 Years. The sound is great, amazing product. Just not worth the money as they just dont last.

  • from Surrey, BC


exceptional sound, i like the start up and close.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Wanted to like it - not for me

Bought it on sale, loved the compact size, decent overall sound with wide soundstage, and smartphone app lent the versatility of EQ settings. In the end I returned it as the bass was lacking when heard against comparable models.

Great Sound But Very Poor Battery Life

I have had three of these now (one a replacement for the second one). None of themn have held a charge more than about four hours despite claims they will play fifteen hours. Logitech explained how to reset them but even after doing that a few times they will not play very long. The speakers sound really good and the app is grea. Batteries are terrible. If I could get my money back I would demand it.

Great Speaker

I've had many portable speakers and I'd say this one is probably the best. Amazing sound, great battery life, app that allows you to control function/equalizer/update, life proof. I got this one on sale at Christmas and was absolutely worth the sale price. After 6 months of use daily use (sometimes 12+hrs a day) mine became defective but UE replaced it no problem. Great customer service! Downside is there are no controls to change songs BUT you are able to answer calls via BT I know a few others who own various UE products and we're all very happy. Totally recommend it.

  • from Digby, NS


Solid item. Sound is excellent. Only downside is battery life...have had this since christmas 2016 and have yet to get more than 2 hours worth of sound out of it, even through it says lasts up to 15 hours. Can't take it anywhere do to this limitation.

Good but not Great

Solid unit and very loud which is nice but the sound lacked fullness. A little tinny for my liking. My JBL Charge 2 has much fuller sound but won't hold a charge and is clipping at high volume after a year and a half so I decided to try this. After a day I returned it and I am going to buy the JBL Charge 3.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Speaker

If you are interested in buying a tough outdoors speaker this is the one for you I use mine everywhere I go.

  • from Calgary, AB

great speaker

I returned another brand because of the poor bluetooth connection. This speaker works great and the sound is even better than the last. We got it on sale and I'm happy with the price and quality.

  • from Greenwood, NS


Amazing sound! The projection is unreal! Worth every penny!! I like be how portable it is, I bring it everywhere and the battery last forever!

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Not received !

I have not received the item!

big value small package

I have been looking for a compact blue tooth speaker that did not shortchange the lows in the music and did justice to the midrange for good vocals, but was small enough to pack in a carry on bag for travel. The need for good music in hotel rooms cannot always be met with headphones. This little speaker is the best I have found to fit this need. It cylindrical shape also allows it to be wrapped easily in a piece of clothing for travel purposes. And the battery life is excellent, as is the ease of connection and set up. Small footprint means it fits on most window ledges as well. A great product especially when it can be bought at a sale price.

  • from Montreal


I have compared it to other devices, like the Sony h.ear go and the JBL Charge 3 Considering it was the most expensive, I was expecting it to perform the best. I was wrong. 1. Its volume at the max setting is lower than the other 2 devices I listened to. 2. The bass is neither deep nor that powerful (as they say it is on their website). 3. Buttons for the volume are hard to press, you have to hold your device in your palm. 4. Not impressed with their 360-degree sound or whatever they call it. I want the sound to come more towards me or the group of people, not into the space, on the left and right. 5. Black color is actually not black: it is part black, part a shiny grey. Thought they sent me the wrong colour, but their black is like that. Weird. 6. The famous tapping on the top to pause and skip songs is unreliable: sometimes I tap twice to skip songs, but the device pauses the song instead. And it's not tapping, is hitting with your whole hand, not just tapping. Weird. 7. Their app is a disaster: the equalizer does NOT work, it's stuck on the standard setting. 8. Charging it is a pain. You have to open the cover (hard to open in the first place) then it's difficult to stick the end of the charging cable inside there. It's too deep and you can't see inside to plug it in unless you untwist the big screw/hook in the middle and remove the rubbery cover. And how many of you will really, seriously, immerse this in water while swimming, or in the shower, at home? For all these reasons, I am returning the device. I was expecting something more professional than this for the high price tag!

Boom 2 ue

Blows my mine how such a great sound can come from such a small speaker.

  • from Laval, QC

Very nice

Portable and effective

Little Speaker with Big Sound

Pretty good speaker for its size. Only criticism is the carrying case it comes in does not stay closed (latched) when transporting (at walking pace) unless transporting very slowly.

  • from Edmonton

Boxing day sale extended

Boxing day sale extended but price gone up 30 dollars. Lol

  • from Brampton, ON

Great speaker

great speaker! Got it on special and definitely worth every penny

  • from Vancouver, BC


The UE Boom is so easy to use. If you also install the app it has so much more to it. The ability to update, pair with other UE Booms, tap control and equalizer! Great product....so glad I bought it!

  • from Mississauga, ON

Exactly what I wanted

Speaker connects easily to everything, works very well with the app, battery life is excellent and most importantly it the sound fills the whole entire house. Great product buying another to pair

  • from Toronto, ON

Love it!

This speaker is the best one at this price point and the fact that it is waterproof is a bonus cause you just never know!!! lol Im very happy with my purchase!!

  • from Ottawa, ON

Awesome Speaker

Tried a few speakers, Altec Lansing, Bose, iHome.. Nothing compares to this one. Incredible design, room filling sound, deep sound, loud and unsurpassed battery life. I would recommend this to anyone. Very impressed.

  • from Delta, BC

Happy Thanksgiving and Bestbuy Anniversity

I got it for (price) . I tried many bluetooth speakers from but mostly didn't meet my expectations like long batteries, loudness, compact...but when I see the email of the sale anniversity, I jump right away to bestbuy store to pick up one. Also the person made me to buy it is Lindsay Stirling, her dubstep violin is freaking good.

  • from Simcoe, ON

Awesome Sound

I did a lot of research before purchasing the UE Boom 2 and it lives up to all the reviews and more! Incredible sound in a small package, the best battery life and quick charge time, and the longest Bluetooth range. Really happy with this purchase.

  • from Trail, BC

Excellent Product

Our family love this speaker! We now have two ourselves, one for the boat (it fits in the drink holder) and one for home. As well, our children and other family now have them. The sound is great and they are easy to take along with you!

  • from Toronto, ON

Boom Speaker

Unbelievable sound. Clear crusp base tones. Took to beach and has many onlookers. Also bought iPhone water resistant case. Completely beach ready. Paired with second unit and my large backyard sounded like a live band was playing. Volume doesn't need to be too high to get the full effect but if you have the room to turn it right up, you will be impressed. Wish is was cheaper. There are larger waterproof cases for less than [price]. Wish that it floated so that I could take it into water. Love this device. Hope it wears well. Only concern is how is it going to look next season.

  • from Burlington

Best Portable Speaker

Love this speaker. Great sound, size, battery life, water proof, nfc, easy to use and great app. Honestly the best portable bluetooth speaker around.

  • from Kelowna, BC

A truly excellent product

My wife thought buying something like this would be a waste of money. Now we're thinking about getting a second one because she's always using it when I go to grab it. A really excellent product. Connects reliably and quickly. Outstanding bluetooth range. Superb sound - - how do they make something so small sound so clear and powerful? Will survive an accidental drop or jolt. One of the things I own that I would buy again in a second if I was ever without it. Highly recommended.

Best Bluetooth speaker

this is the best Bluetooth speaker on the market. it's better than any beats speaker and any Bose speaker. with the volume at only 75% it is still crazy loud. greatest part is that it's waterproof!! no beats or Bose speaker can do that. you get a crazy loud speaker that is also water proof. also the battery last insanely long. it's been 5 days since I charged it and I've used it about 3 hours each day and it still have 30% left. also get the app it makes the experience much better

  • from Toronto, ON

Excellent product for the money when on sale.

Purchased this on discount as a gift for my father who is 71, he has no problem using it despite knowing nothing about technology, he loves using it and is happy with the sound and the features and general ease of use. I myself am a bit more discerning when it comes to audio quality, the sound from this unit could use improvement, it is better than a lot of units out there. But bluetooth in general could still see some improvement, also the size of the unit limits its dynamic range, mids are not as strong as I expected either. Overall still very happy with the unit and have spent a few hours with it myself. It is ideal for small rooms, condos or apartments and can fill most rooms with sound easily. Great for clumsy people too as it is shock proof and mostly waterproof.

  • from Toronto, ON

Love it

Fantastic product. Sounds incredible for a very small device. The app is super simple to use, and all the features are really convenient. So happy with my purchase!

  • from Brampton, ON

Awesome speaker

a speaker that delivers quality sound to the ears with deep bass. i got this as my second speaker after getting the beats pill. this speaker is definitely a 100 times better at a lower price. more than satisfied with this speaker.

  • from Toronto, ON

Love this speaker!`

Bought this speaker for my boyfriend after I bought one for myself and we both love it. The battery life is great and it is amazingly loud for such a small speaker.

  • from Montréal, QC

Excellent wireless speaker!

Bought this as a Christmas gift and it was already used for several parties during the Holidays. The sound quality and volume is surprisingly good, though it does lack bass as all other speakers of this size. Haven't tested resistance to water or heavy drops yet, but the construction looks very solid... no wiggly pieces at all. Setup was a breeze for my 70 years old dad.

  • from Chilliwack, BC

Ultra Portable with Great sound

Super portable device that is great for taking on hikes. Very durable and its even water proof. Sound is great at moderate levels but starts to distort a bit at full volume. Bass could be a bit better but for my personal use, the extra durability was worth the trade off. Battery life is amazing if left on low to medium levels. last me about 10-12 hours. I would highly recommend this product if you need a speaker to take camping, hiking, or anywhere outdoors.
