Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 Review
If you are in the market for a compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that’s durable, then you don’t want to cross the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 off the list yet. In fact, it should be on top of your priority list if you have used the original UE Boom which proved to be a powerful Bluetooth speaker. In addition to its power, now we have better battery life, louder speakers and overall better sound quality as compared to the original UE Boom. Moreover, you get a water resistant speaker that can also be paired with another UE speaker to get that much needed stereo sound output. Furthermore, the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 is stain and shock proof making it a suitable choice for outdoor entertainment.
Given that the original UE Boom was a success, we would obviously be curious to know what made the guys at Logitech headquarters decide to push a successor on the market. As it turns out, it’s all for the good as there’s a lot to love about the new Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2. Just like your average Bluetooth speaker, you can stream music straight from any smart device regardless of the OS or source app. At a glance, you won’t notice many differences as compared to the original UE Boom. However, there are some tiny but very important cosmetic improvements if you look closer. For example, you will find the new flap covering the ports very practical. Moreover, the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 is fully waterproof as compared to the original UE Boom which was only water resistant. It’s even guaranteed that if you don’t close the flap, there won’t be any damage of the speaker caused by water. Well, this seems like a nice pool party audio solution.
Most of the improvements however are under the hood. There is a significant redesign of the drivers which makes it a better sounding machine than its predecessor. Moreover, you will get about 25% extra sound from the speaker on full volume as compared to the original UE Boom. Obviously you will get some distortion when you push it to the limit with some tracks but you will be impressed at how loud this small beauty can get despite its compact nature.
With everything going the tap and touch way, the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 comes with gesture controls and all you need to do is double tap when you want to skip a track. Moreover, you can remotely switch the Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 on and off from your smart device using it’s free app which also allows you to update its firmware when there are new releases.
At the end of the day, it would be hard to find a perfect product in this world, but getting something close hasn’t felt better than this. The Logitech Ultimate Ears UE BOOM 2 doesn’t come cheap but it’s totally worth it given that it’s capable of going neck to neck with some of the best compact Bluetooth portable speaker on the market today.
