Easy to connect
Bought this Black colour version as it was being reduced for clearance at my local Kmart for $50! It is quite heavy for the size, has a solid construction and feeling. It connects easily by bluetooth, power reserve is adequate for my use at average volume. Enough features (built in mic) and a useful app. I found the sound quality is a bit disappointing as I was expecting a lot more bass, but small size is no doubt the key here. Could also do with a shorter recharge time. I would recommend this because of the size, plus the sound quality is a lot better than my laptop speakers.
Çlear sound and quick bluetooth connection
So happy with the UE boom that we have had for at least 4 years now.
Super quick bluetooth connection.
Good amount of bass.
If I am to be picky about some things that can be improved, there are two areas:
1: If your phone rings while you are playing music the caller has a really bizarre experience where their voice comes through the speaker and they cannot actually hear you on the other end. To solve this I just immediately turn off bluetooth when my phone starts to ring.
2: It would be great to have fm radio rather than streaming from a radio app then through the speakers.
Aside from this, super happy with my speaker... I am considering getting a second one for work.
Pumps Out the Bass!
We have 2 of these - one purchased from Bing Lee and one through Kogan. Both are working well and we have linked them together to form a true stereo sound. Batteries last and no problems so far. Only issue was that I was sent an English power plug with the UE when I purchased it through Kogan and they refused to change it for an Australian plug! Not happy Jane!
DO NOT BUY
I charge it so I can use it in the future; and whether it be 3 days or 3 weeks, I then preparedly go to use it and it lasts for approx 25 minutes, no more, I need to find another brand and buy.
I don’t understand the charge because I bought it to play wireless via bluetooth for at least a couple of hours and it doesn’t do that, so I think I may need a new brand. Sorry, but being a single mum and saving up for this, it is devastating and was just a bit of a waste for me so a little disappointing.....sorry but thank you.
Bought this back in 2016 and has stood the test of time!
Key Points to note:
- DURABLE: I have dropped from the table many times over 4 years with no affect to sound quality or connectivity.
- SOUND QUALITY: When comparing to more recent models of UE Boom, there is no considerable difference in sound quality.
Full, 'non-tinny' sound for all genres of music.
- CONNECTIVITY: the range of connectivity in these things are amazing! Can walk upstairs without my iPhone8+ disconnecting or glitching.
Purchased in March 2016 at JBHIFI.
Do not buy these speakers !!!
Australian customers Do not buy these speakers. Logitech the manufacturer have no repair center in Australia and no speaker repair people will touch them as they are not worth it. Whilst its ok if they are in warranty as soon as they are out you are basically left with a piece of tech junk. When they work the speakers are great but just be warned of the after care.
Purchased at apple for A$499.00.
Using it now as i review!!
Bought on special as discontinued, newer model inbound. Was important to have a smash-proof and waterproof speaker as young kids are rough.
Good sound for the price.
Bluetooth doesn't drop out.
Dedicated app on Android or Apple app stores, to control sound and equaliser.
Only issue is the charging connector seems fragile. Takes a few goes to correctly insert supplied usb male connector into female on device.
Will look at another bigger one soon, from UE. Maybe MegaBass.......
Edit: I love the inbuilt hook as well, to put a carabena through and hook anywhere. For me it's my backpack!!
Purchased in September 2018 at jbhifi kotara for A$129.00.
Awesome portable speakers
Very handy small but powerful portable speakers.
Great quality sounds
Long life battery
Cool design and features
Very easy to set up and connect to your device via bluetooth or aux cord
I have it for 2yrs now
Shocking after service within warranty period
Purchased for our daughter for Xmas only 2 months ago from Harvey Norman
Pulled the charging cord from the speaker and the end of the cord came apart
Harvey Norman phoned them and they apparently said it was the way it was pulled out
What a load of garbage
They said that it wouldn’t be covered under warranty
We purchased it 2 months ago!!!
Wouldn’t buy this garbage again
Great speaker that is waterproof and very portable
The UE boom 2 is great for a loud and portable speaker, because it has great quality of noise and also can be connected to other UE booms to make it louder. overall a great speaker! It is waterproof so it can sit next to a pool or near the shower without being damaged, and it is also drop resistant so it doesn't get damaged when it is dropped.
The eu boom by far has been the most frustrating piece of technology I have ever used. The wire cable that recharged the unit is fragile and breaks - the unit disconnects all the time. We purchased 5 of these and had the same experience with all. I seriously think there are better options available.
Love this portable speaker
I just love this portable speaker, It produces good sound and bass for its intended purpose. I mainly use the Boom 2 on trail rides with my cycling group, it keeps the whole group entertained connected via my mobile phone device.
In fact two other members have gone out and purchased their own. I highly recommend it, and when on special its a great deal.

A great and solid speaker
Our first Bluetooth speaker and couldn’t be happier. The Boom is rugged as and perfect for our home, at work, or out and about. It’s light and easy to carry around when travelling and has a great sound with most genres of music we have tried. Battery life is also impressive!
Small music box with big sound
We’ve had our UE Boom for over a month. Connection and operation smooth and very easy to follow instructions. Surprised on how loud it can get for such a small speaker and longevity with the battery while in use. Very clear sound, we use ours everyday. Must have versitile speaker for music lovers.
perfect travel mate
Bought this from a gumtree seller. Price was very cheap. But never expected this sort of quality sound effect. Has been with me for the past 1 year and I always use it while cleaning house. makes me go crazy. Charging is quite good and can listen to songs for a while.
Not a bad product works with ease.
I've used both the UE boom 2 and JBL Charge 3. I ended up purchasing the Boom 2 It's small compact design is great for storing in my car glove box. But it WILL NOT charge your phone as you play like the JBL charge 3 will do. I use it when camping and the sound level is great for that purpose. The sound is as expected from a small driver very tinny with little to no bass response from the speaker. It has the ability to adjust the equalizer via the App and is something I done straight away as the factory settings are terrible. I like warm soundin...g music try these settings Bass 0, 5, Mid -3,-4 Treble -3. That's the best sound I could find. The charge port is narrow on the unit but will fit other thin micro USB charges such as the Samsung S2 Charger and most thin chargers found in Kmart and Target. People report they can't find aftermarket charges to charge the Boom 2. I think they need to open their eyes and have a little look around. All in all is a great unit. would be great if UE made a subwoofer to link with the unit.
Sounded good, did not last more than a couple of weeks
It sounded good, although I was a bit nonplussed when it grabbed my phone calls. Perhaps I am old-fashioned, but I would have liked an instruction leaflet, mentioning that there was eg, an ap to download.
But it all went bad when it stopped charging. How can the UE Boom 2 know that you have plugged in the connection cord and connected it to the power, but still tell you that it won't charge up because the power connection hasn't been made? It knows what you want to do, it can tell you have plugged it in, but it refuses to comply and tell...s you so, in a polite female voice. It defies logic. I went on Youtube and tried the various suggested contortions of pressing several buttons at once, but this didn't work. I took it back to JB Hi-Fi and there was no problem at all about getting an immediate refund, although there was the expected recitation about me being the first person ever that this has happened to. I get that a lot. Now I've got a JBL one from JB HiFi and it is really good so far.
A great way to play music.
Had this for over a year now and really happy with it. Can take it with me wherever I go - shower, pool, in the garage and can play my music. Great sound and gets a high volume with quality of sound out of it. Definitely worth buying one to play your music.
Questions & Answers
