UE BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review
UE (Ultimate Ears) always manufactures great products that you can’t find from any other brand. The UE Boom is said to be one of the best wireless Bluetooth speakers of all time. When it was launched, it took the world by storm due to its incredibly useful features.
It is portable and compact yet delivers an insane range of volume that even some full-sized speakers can’t match. Here is a detailed review regarding the UE Boom wireless mobile Bluetooth speaker.
The UE Boom is available in a broad variety of vibrant colors such as camo, lake moss green, northern light, pink vibe, red, white, black, and the Skrillex Edition. It has a cylindrical frame that is coated in a single piece of colored mesh fabric. The mesh material entirely covers the innards of this device, which includes the multi-directional speaker, microphone, and battery.
It has a rubber spine that adds significant functionality to the unit as it holds the volume controls. Also, if you press both buttons (volume up and down) simultaneously, the speaker will announce the remaining battery life. The center of the top cap is imprinted with a power button that lights up when turned on as it possesses a subtle LED. Alongside it is a Bluetooth pairing button.
At the bottom, there is a rubber flap that covers up a microUSB charging port and a 3.5mm porthole for wired listening to music. You can remove this flap if you don’t like it. However, the device will lose its water resistant capabilities then.
The device possesses a water-resistance rating of IPX4. It can withstand shock and splashes of water. Also, the mesh fabric is conveniently washable. It has an incredibly beautiful design. Due to its fun and colorful visual statement, it looks like an attractive decorative piece when not in use.
The UE Boom delivers a high-end performance with incredible sound and a lasting battery. This unit produces an excellent, high-quality audio from its compact body, but for high-functionality, you will require its companion app. Otherwise, you’ll miss out on a few of its interesting functions. The app is available for free from iOS and Android stores and is called UE Boom.
Through its app, users can tweak basic settings. For instance, you can customize the speaker’s name on the list of Bluetooth devices and set up an alarm that can wake up the user to the song or tune of their choice.
It provides a surrounding ‘360 degree’ sound because of its unique cylindrical shape. Another impressive feature is its volume; it can hit up to an extraordinarily high level that delivers a thunderous audio.
