Ultimate Ears has quickly emerged as one of the most attractive providers of Bluetooth speakers around.
The products available from UE aren’t just phenomenal in terms of sound quality, they’re amazing because they look amazing and stand the test of time too.
Whether you’re investing in something simple like the UE Boom, or you want something that drives incredible high-performance volume, like the Megaboom, UE has you covered.
We’ve covered a few UE products before on this website, but we’re nowhere near as deep into the Ultimate Ears portfolio as we would like to be.
That’s why today, we’re going to take a closer look at one of the highest-rated UE products on the market.
Read on for your complete UE Boom 2 review.
UE Boom 2 review: Design and size
The number one priority for any Bluetooth speaker fan is always going to be sound quality. However, in a world where speakers can be focal points in virtually any room in your home, or fashion accessories on the move, they need to look good too.
That’s not an issue with the UE Boom 2.
Just like other speakers from the Ultimate Ears range, the Boom 2 speaker comes with a range of stylish finishes to choose from. You can pick from unique designs with printed fabric on the exterior, or block colours like cherry bomb red.
Crucially, the Ultimate Ears Boom 2 doesn’t just look good; it performs well too. This wireless Bluetooth speaker provides the crystal clear surround sound you’d expect from UE.
Like other speakers in the Boom lineup, the UE Boom 2 speaker comes with the durability you need for a portable speaker. It’s waterproof, dust-proof, grime-proof, and so much more.
There’s even a little hook section on the top of the device so you can keep it clipped to your backpack.

Size: 6.5 x 6.5 x 18cm
360-degree surround sound
Water and dust-proof

UE Boom 2 review: Features
The Ultimate Ears Boom 2 instantly grabs your attention with a unique aesthetic and durable performance. However, it can also accomplish a lot more than you might expect.
Along with 360-degree surround sound, you can also pair your UE Boom 2 with up to eight additional Bluetooth speakers. This makes it easier to create a high-performance soundstage anywhere you go.
There’s a huge amount of volume built into this portable device, and you can even connect your Bluetooth speaker with things like the Alexa Echo dot. This means that you have the freedom to control your music on Pandora, Spotify or Amazon music with your voice.
The updated version of the UE Boom comes with higher-quality internal tech and 25% louder volume performance. There’s one-touch NFC compatibility built-in, and a micro USB charging port included.
On top of the extra features, you still get the 15-hour battery life from UE, which is enough to keep you jamming all through the day.
What’s more, to help give you more room to play, the Ultimate Ears Boom 2 also comes with an accompanying app for adjusting EQ.
