The Ultimate Ears Boom2 is no ordinary speaker. Not only has it got awesome sound quality but it was made to live life alongside you. So it wants to go out and play and relishes a muddy field, a snow-covered mountainside or a sandy beach with heat and moisture and wants to get wet and dirty because it’s waterproof, dirt-proof, and shockproof. It’s made of really strong stuff!
So you can party hard knowing that this little speaker will be partying just as hard – and loud. At the launch party we saw these little speakers being toppled into water from a not inconsiderable height and they came up still able to play, which was impressive. So is the 100ft wireless range which you can control from your phone or tablet – so long as they are Bluetooth enabled of course and the 15 hour battery life. The battery is rechargeable and it comes with a small and very fast micro USB for charging on the move.
It’s really fun to use too. You tap it on the top to play (or pause) and tap twice to skip a track – no fumbling with your phone and it wirelessly connects two UE BOOMs together in stereo via the app to spread the sound around. The app also turns the speaker on remotely, gives you speaker updates and access to an expanding set of features including an alarm.
If that all weren’t enough the colour range has six luscious colourways from purple and orange to icy white so there’s lots of variety. My personal favourite is Cherrybomb in a brilliant cherry red. Because they are waterproof you can customise them too and get creative.
Ultimate Ears say they make ‘speakers for people not rooms’ and we think they’re really onto something there.
Ultimate Ears Boom2 is available from John Lewis among others for £169.95.
