The UE BOOM 2 is the latest speaker from Ultimate Ears, a subsidiary of Logitech. This is a 360-degree Bluetooth speaker that produces some incredible sound. It's not HiFi or Hi-Res, but it is great nonetheless. It's nice and loud and in fact, UE recommends that you use it outdoors, because it is just that good. The UE BOOM 2 has deep bass, which makes for some great sounding music, especially Rap and Hip Hop music.
What makes the UE BOOM 2 even better is the fact that it is IPX-7 rated for water resistance. So it's waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to a meter of water. It's also shockproof, so if you drop it, the speaker won't break or really suffer any damage. UE has also added the ability to control the speaker through Siri or Google Now, depending on your mobile OS of choice. We're looking at 15-hours of battery life here, with a 100-foot Bluetooth range. Perhaps the best feature of the UE BOOM 2 is the fact that you can pick up two of these and connect them. But the fun doesn't stop with just two. You can actually pair up to 50 of these speakers together and have them playing music in sync, that's pretty incredible.
Typically, the UE BOOM 2 would cost you around $199, which is a pretty normal price for a speaker of this quality. However, Amazon is offering up the UE BOOM 2 for just $129 right now, taking about $70 off of the regular price (or about 35%). Some colors are already sold out, and shipping after Christmas. But others are still available and will arrive before Christmas if you have Amazon Prime. And if you don't, you can sign up for a 30-day trial using the link below.
