Ultimate Ears Boom II is the true successor of its predecessor series. UE Boom is a very popular Bluetooth speaker that can pass its competitor with the great performance on power bass and it feels insanely great on highest volume. At the last time I try their product, I am not really impressed with the audio quality because I keep hear flat sounds rather than clear and smooth imaging. I am hoping that they make improvement here because the quality would be better. Now I have a chance to review their latest audio gadget and maybe it worth for you. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this audio gadget. So we hope you enjoy it.
The Best In Term Of Connectivity And Features
I really love their improvement in term of features and design. It is 90 % identical, but I notice few enhancements especially on grip and playback buttons. There is a fabric material that full cover the speaker, so you won’t have any problem on getting some splashing water. On the front you will find their signature and few playback buttons including the volume buttons. Like I said before, the hand grip is so much better thanks to tis rubberize cover. The rubbers plastic is not only giving an extra protection, but also giving a better premium look on it. it has IPX7 waterproof protection built on it. Remember that it is waterproof and not only splasproof. It means that the audio gadget would even survive if you take it swimming with you. it still able to prevent the water from leaking for 30 minutes under the water.
The connection is far and far better than what I found on similar product. I never have any signal drop even though I place it far for more than 60 feet. The company claims that the range is more than 100 feet, but on my test I have found that it doesn’t go farther than 60 feet. It sill impressive because most of them usually only capable on 30 feet and here you could get it more than you expect. They also give us a better extra feature that you would get if you download their app. There are so many things that you could do including turn on or off the power, raise and reduce the volume, and even tell how much battery is left. The extra feature might be not too promising, but it will be so useful on some occasional situations.
The batter life is success on fulfilling my expectation. Usually I always getting 8 or 9 hours battery life and now I can get more than 10 hours with this one. They claim it to be 15 hours, but more than 10 hours is far than its competitor. You are going to get a solid performance during of your pool party or even camping with its great battery life.

The Bluetooth speaker is offered a 360 degree audio that is coming from the original version. The speaker is capable of delivering the high quality audio anywhere you are standing or sitting. The audio range is wider than I expected before. The sound quality is impressive, at least if we compare with similar prize. The bass power and level are pretty solid and gives good punchy sound although it sometimes fails on catching the details on mids.
The bass power might be impressive, but once again they really not improving for the audio quality on maximum volume. I don’t get it that bad, but with volume around 85% it gets harsh and making the passive radiator struggling on performance. They attempt to fix the issue by putting larger active driver and better passive radiator, but it doesn’t give significant difference on it. The overall performance is still great, even though the highs little too harsh.
|More than 60 feet audio playback.||The audio is struggling on the highest volume.|
|Fully waterproof and shockproof.||Needs improvement on the highs.|
|The design is catchy and premium.||-|
The battery life and 60 feet audio range are not something that we could easily find on this price tag. They really need an improvement on the audio, but it doesn’t give too much effects on the value of its. I still get it as one of the best for waterproof and shockproof speaker for this range of price. You probably are going to love it since you would be avoided on charging it again and again with the great battery life. At last, please make any comment if you have any question.
