Awesome sound while they last JUNK!

We are on our second ultimate boom now, we thought that it may have been just a defect concerning our first one. The sound these units put out are great and thought we would go ahead and purchase another one despite the problems with the first. Big mistake and after looking it up it appears that it is not that uncommon a problem. As i said a great unit to begin with but as with both booms we purchased they start to have a crackle to them, which doesnt only completely ruin the listening experience but also is quite annoying. I apologize to anyone that runs into my post on more than one occasion but i will continue to post at every opportunity as the price of these units are expensive and the pair that i have bought have put me out an enormous amount of money for something that does not last as long as the compatition.

Tried many & love this speaker

I've had this speaker for 5 months now and couldn't be happier. I've had speakers with stronger bass, but it is clear, loud, has excellent battery life and is waterproof. I use it every day around the house, in the shower and take it whenever I go somewhere.

  • from Winnipeg

Great Product

Really love this speaker. Has amazing sound and can go quite loud without losing quality. It has a great battery that lasts long too.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Speaker

Overall, very happy with the sound and quality of the speaker. My only complaint is the way it sometimes manages connections: a few times I have had it connected to one device and music is constantly getting interrupted by it trying to connect to another device that is unavailable. I had to do a factory reset a couple of times, which seems to fix it temporarily.

  • from Montréal, QC

Coudn't be more satified

The speaker is perfect for everything. Its portable and loud enoUgh to satisfy me wherever i am. The sound quality is awesome and you have som awesome qualities and features that surprise you everyday. Like it even has a mic. The others are yours to discover!

  • from Victoria, BC

Inferior Sound Quality

I read some great reviews of this speaker and bought it online, on sale at a reasonable price. I was expecting a full rich sound quality and it wasn't there. I tried it for a few days to see if I would get used to it - but the sound quality lacked so much. I am used to the quality of Bose speakers and the UE speaker doesn't come close. I returned it, spent more and bought the Bose Soundlink 111. The profound difference in sound quality is extremely noticeable. If you want full spectrum sound buy Bose! I would recommend going to the store and doing a listening comparison of the speakers - the difference will be obvious to your ears.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Is there a problem with providing operating instructions?

We are not all 18-25 years of age buying products. Operating instructions too much to ask? Otherwise, sounds good for the money.

  • from London, ON

Love this speaker!

This speaker sounds great. It gets pretty loud when on full volume and when it gets there is dosen't get fuzzy and muffled like most speakers i've owned in the past. Its extreamly easy to pair to your phone. The bluetooth range on this speaker is not 100ft. But it streams a clear signal with no break up while i walk around my house bettween floors. The app that can be downloaded on your phone lets you coustomize your audio prefrences and offers the ability to pair more ue boom speakers. The bass is not too crazy on this speaker. Its still good but if your're looking for a speaker with a really rich bass and thump you won't get it with the ue boom, get the mega boom. I would recomened this speaker to anyone of my friends. Plus its fully waterproof, what else could you want from a speaker.

  • from Montréal, QC

Very good product

Very nice product. Sound amazing, able to connect AUX, waterproof perfect. Just some interference sometimes when you connect the AUX, and coming from the speaker. Otherwise, in Bluetooth, no noise, sound very clear and powerful. Recommend highly

  • from Nelson, BC

Powerful and durable

Bought this primarily to use with a video projector for a portable home movie system. No noticeable bluetooth lag, and the sound is big and robust enough to fill a living room. While the unit is very portable and it's tempting to just throw it anywhere, the sound quality is understandably sensitive to placement. Although it is indeed possible to tweak the sound settings with the app, placing it on a large solid, acoustically reflective surface like a table or floor (rather than a bookshelf or carpet) made a huge difference to the default sound. We've knocked this over and kicked it accidentally a couple of times and it's still happy as a clam. Battery life more than sufficient for a movie marathon.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great for what I wanted

This unit has impressed me so far... Used it twice now, once at home where it lasted well over 6 hours over an afternoon playing music, and still had lots of battery left. Also took it down a river float, played for over 4 hours and it did get some water on it with no issues, so I was very pleased. Great sound for a small unit, and great for a 7 person floating party island.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Met all my expectations

Keep in mind that this is a portable Bluetooth speaker. That being said, this speaker performs phenomenally for its size. It easily fills rooms with undistorted, clear sound. I read reviews that said it distorts sound at max volume. While this is true, a couple clicks down from max volume and it will still crank out the tunes so loud that you cannot have a conversation, yet still play crystal clear. I do not regret buying this speaker whatsoever - it does exactly what I want it to and more. Highly recommended.

  • from Coquitlam, BC

Great Speaker for the Average User

A surprisingly tough and great sounding speaker. The bass won't blow you away, but the sound is impressive for its size. I did, however, find the "tap control" feature to be spotty at best.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Delivered as promised.

For the money, very nice quality and volume coming from iOS devices (phone, iPad). Some limitations on lower-volume source materials (like poorer quality webstreams) and some distortion, but for the size and price very good. Easy to pair with mobile devices - and maddening trying to pair a laptop. What gives?

  • from Calgary, AB

Pleasantly surprised

This speaker has a great sound, portability, and style. I am very happy with my purchase. The app is easy to use. Highly recommended.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Awesome product

UE Boom 2 is the real deal when it comes to Bluetooth speakers. The sound the awesome, the features are top notch and the price is just right. The app has a feature that enables pairing 2 speakers so I'm buying another one.

  • from New Westminster, BC

Even better than the hype.

I can't believe how good this portable speaker is. It's sounds better than the beat pill 2 and even better than Bose Soundlink 3. I know because I listened to all three in the store. Its also water proof to 7 feet below the water. This portable speaker's only downside as far as I can tell, is that it's too popular, and it's very hard to get in store right now.

  • from Hamilton, ON


Excellent little speaker, fantastic for a small apartment. The bass isn't as rich as you get with the Bose Mini Soundlink, but the difference is negligible.
