Loud little speaker

Small speaker but big sound. Paired easy with my iPhone 6, UE app is pretty basic & easy to use as a remote for the speaker. Sound is good but, bass is a little lacking. My other Bluetooth speaker is a Bose Soundlink & this is not a Bose (its also not priced like a Bose). But it does the job & I bought mine on sale. Good overall.

Fantastic little speaker.

I tried a couple of different bluetooth speakers, but found this is the only one that covers everything I want. Fantastic battery life, very quick pairing, a useful app and impressive sound quality for the size. If I could say one bad thing about it, is that since I got the white one, it can get dirty easily. Then again, the thing is super waterproof, so it's really easy to clean!

Good speaker

I need a portable speaker for work and this is great, you can hear speaking voices very well and sound and music clips are very audible. Didn't like the white colour, it was very grey. Exchanged it for the tropical purple and orange and love it! Eventually want to also get the Bose soundlink mini for listening to classical music but in the meantime this is perfect for work because it is portable, relatively light weight, waterproof and can deal with some shock. We're also looking forward to using it at the beach and in the park etc.

Pairing was easy, but when I started playing my music from Apple music, there was unpleasant static regardless of location. Then it stoped working. I also question having to use a screwdriver for other than removing a screw. And last, the instructions were not very good. Having said all that, i must say that another user i know was highly pleased with the unit and strongly recommended it to me, the reason why I bought it but later returned it to the store.

Not impressed

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 output,which 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!

Best speaker!!

I looked at this speaker forever and finally decided to buy it when it went on sale. Best decision!! This speaker is the perfect size to throw in my bag or backpack, it's light, I don't have to worry about it breaking or wires getting tangled or anything. Plus, the sound quality is phenomenal. Very easy to use with a phone or computer or tablet. I haven't tested out the waterproof feature yet but it appears pretty durable from what I've seen so I'm not worried. Overall, a really great buy!!

  • from Richmond Hill, ON


Recently bought this during black Friday and have had it now for 2 weeks. I can say I am extremely pleased with it. Got a great feel - rugged, durable; very portable, cool look - white (or Yeti) looks better than in pics, great sound - lacks some bass however. Straight forward to use. Download the app for additional features including equalizer for sound. Overall, this speaker has definitely met my expectations.

  • from Ontario


A good speaker, with very nice sound quality. They recently fixed the sound lag with a firmware update through the smartphone app which I very much appreciate. I love the app's ability to change the equalizer, as well as turn off the irritating sound that is made when the speaker is turned on/off. The app also allows you to wirelessly power on/off the device, which I often take advantage of. The speaker goes very loud, so much so that the slight distortion at max volume doesn't bother me as I'll never have to use it at such an extreme volume. Cons: when using it through the Aux cord port, there is some noise that it somewhat loud when no music is playing, although not too noticeable when music is playing. Bluetooth sound quality seems superior overall surprisingly, which can be viewed as good or bad.

Good product, great for when it's on sale. It goes truly incredibly loud, and whilst the sound quality does degrade slightly at the 90% plus level, it more than enough to fill up a loud back yard party on its own. The app is also a very nice addition, allowing to customize the EQ, as well as turn on/off the device remotely. The ability to tap the top of the speaker to pause music doesn't always work, but it's nice nonetheless. It also feels very sturdy in the hand. Cons: -Battery life is good, but I'd say less than advertised. -Heavy -I don't like the 360 degree sound gimmick. I'd rather have the ability to direct all the sound towards where I want it. -sometimes has a weird glitch where sound comes out a few seconds after it should. This lag is very noticeable when using Netflix. However it can be solved by turning on and off the product.

Great sound quality but not White

No doubt about it, it has great sound! I was disappointing to see the color wasn't white. Its more of a light grey.

  • from Ottawa, ON

I just want to take it with me everywhere!

A friend let me a UE Boom and I loved it so much I had to buy my own. Super easy to sync up with my own and friends phones/computers. Really happy with the sound quality and does a great job of filling a space without even having to crank up the volume. Battery life was really good for the amount of use. Awesome for around the house, in the shower, at a bbq, camping, the beach.... I just want to take it with me everywhere!

Excellent in all aspects. Loses some sound quality at high volumes otherwise great choice for a wireless Bluetooth speaker.
