We are going to review one of the best waterproof speakers on the market today. The UE Wonderboom 2
The UE Wonderboom 2 has been leading as the best speaker by a lot of review websites including TechRadar and Cnet. Besides that, it has also been rated 4.8 out of 5 stars by over 840 verified customers on Amazon.com alone.
Today we are going to be looking at, why all the good ratings?
Despite the fact that the UE Wonderboom 2 looks just like the original Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Portable which made over 5,000 sales on Amazon alone. This new UE Wonderboom 2 has been improved in more ways than we can look into.
This portable waterproof speaker has got an extra 30% battery life upgrade compared to the original model. With better bass response and new outdoor boost feature that helps the speaker get even louder than ever before.
Lets look at the design of this awesome waterproof speaker
In the design of the UE Wonderboom 2, there is not much difference between it and the original Wonderboom. Especially in the chassis. The size, charging port, and most physical appearances remain the same. Except for the new elastic strap at the top.
At the top of the speaker are two buttons for power, pairing, and playback. And on the front, you will find the big volume button with addition and subtraction signs. and at the bottom, you find an outgoing boost button for higher functionality even in a noisy environment.
As far as performance goes, the UE Wonderboom 2 sounds louder with a ton more bass than you would expect from a speaker of its size.
The outdoor boost is a notable improvement from the original Wonderboom as it increases the overall volume and sound quality while used in a noisy environment. With outdoor boost enabled at medium volume, you get slightly more bass than the original Wonderboom. Cymbals sound splashy and mids are more emphasized – Lewis Leong from TechRadar stated.
Another considerable feature is the 360 degrees of sound which have been increased in the Wonderboom 2. This means you get equal quality of sound whatever angle of the speaker you are standing.
Now the feature that is making us look into this specific speaker is the waterproof feature. The UE Wonderboom 2 is built with an IP67 dustproof and waterproof rating which makes it a great gear for your beach trip and your pool party.
You might have thought of using the original Wonderboom to play true stereo by pairing two of them. Well, that did not work out for the original Wonderboom and it has been added in the Wonderboom 2. You can pair two Wonderboom 2 together to get the true stereo whereas the original one only boost volume and not give the true stereo sound effects.
This speaker is also rugged and so suitable for hiking and swimming. It can withstand a repeated 5ft fall with none of its parts gaining a single crack or even scratch.
Earlier, we talked about the improvement in battery life by 30% which makes it last up to 13 hours of use. When you are using the speaker with the outdoor boost you might not get a full 13 hours of use.
Conclusion: The UE Wonderboom 2 is an awesome upgrade to the original Wonderboom Portable. It is rugged, waterproof, and portable. The sound effects can not be neglected with the great new outdoor boost feature and the true stereo sound effects when paired. You might want to get one now on Amazon for less than 100$ or two if you want to throw a small pool party or go for a beach trip.
