VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The Boom offers solid sound performance with a healthy amount of volume -- especially considering its size.
  • It's well-designed, simple and fashionable style, and because it's water- and stain-resistant, you can take it almost anywhere.
  • Companion app occasionally gets new features; lets you control the speaker remotely -- like the alarm clock function that wakes you to your favorite tunes.

CONS

  • At two bills, it's somewhat pricey for speakers of its size and class.
  • If you're all about the bass, you may find that the bass is somewhat lacking.
  • It's not as loud as its more formidable and higher-priced big brother, the Megaboom.
This well-regarded portable wireless speaker is known as a benchmark among its peers for its great 360-degree sound, durable construction and plethora of eye-catching color combinations. It's controllable via iconic + and - volume buttons, as well as a companion app, which can also be used to pair another speaker for true stereo or to tweak other features and settings. It offers 15 hours of battery life, plus speakerphone capabilities, all in a tough, stylish, cylindrical package.

It’s everything I want it to be: good-sounding, long-lasting, with plenty of extras, and it’s good-looking to boot. If you want the best all-around option you can buy, it’s really not even close.

We actually received a second Boom from Ultimate Ears to test out the speakers’ stereo pairing mode — more on that later — and it arrived wet, having been used at the speakers’ launch party a few days ago. If that’s not testament to the Boom’s good build quality and effective waterproofing, we don’t know what is.

The Boom's can-shaped design offers what Logitech calls 360-degree sound, and to its credit the speaker seems to offer solid, room-filling imaging regardless of its placement or your listening position.

I was impressed by how loud the Boom played and how long the battery lasted. I still wished it cost a little less, but in taking it for a weekend spin outside the office, I found myself becoming attached to it.

Forget Jambox. It's officially been replaced, at least to my ears, by the Ultimate Ears Boom.

Perfect for the house or at the beach, it’s surely something that’ll play nicely in a variety of conditions and environments. However, its sticker price of $200 is a bit tough to swallow.

If you’re looking for a step-up from the Ongo or a step down from the Megaboom, the Boom is a good choice. It offers an outstanding feature package, delivers very good sound quality, can withstand a splash or a rainstorm (but not a trip to the bottom of the pool), and has a compact and easily portable design.

The sound wasn't bass heavy and like the other UE products gave me a sound that seemed true to the content.
