Ultimate Ears UE Boom Audio Overview

Fifteen hours of battery life, interesting case design, iOS/Android app allows you to choose an equalizer, set an alarm. And finally, UE Boom even has a tripod socket (!) - if you need it, be sure to write in the comments.

Design, construction

The column looks great, the cylinder is sheathed with some kind of dense fabric, on the official website they say that the case is protected from water - apparently, from drops. Or maybe not, the kit includes a cover for the USB and AUX connectors, if you wish, you can close all the holes. By the way, the connectors are on the bottom, don't be surprised by the ring, there is a thread for a tripod (!). This is exactly what I'm seeing for the first time. Under the minus button is the NFC area, you can connect the column to a device that supports this technology. The column is available in several colors, both the color of the matte plastic and the actual fabric are different.

Management

Two large volume buttons, a Bluetooth button, power on - that's all . The indicator lights are neat, when you turn on the UE Boom, an interesting sound is heard, something like drums (probably a bongo). The same sound when turned off and during any other actions with the column. There were no problems with pairing. If you press the volume buttons at the same time, the column will tell you the remaining time.

Program

There is a free app for iOS/Android, I downloaded the iOS version.There is a visual guide to the main functions, let's talk about some separately:

  • Two UE Boom speakers can work as a stereo pair or play the same track on their own
  • There is a microphone here, so you can use the speaker as a speakerphone (I tried it, everything is fine, but the interlocutors say that the voice volume is low)
  • Alarm clock, set in the application, you can choose a track from the library, Internet radio or a built-in melody as an alarm
  • The speaker firmware can be updated, for this you need to download the firmware file, there is software for both OS X and Windows, connect the device using a microUSB cable, run the utility and wait for the end. Some features cannot be used without a software update
  • Equalizer presets, four settings in total: loud (universal), bass boost, privacy (strange name), voice, best for podcasts, movies - if you decide to watch it on iPad or iPhone
  • General column settings, you can change the name, view the battery charge, select the desired notification language, equalizer settings, view the software version
  • Supports Bluetooth connection to two devices at the same time. Let me remind you, in addition to Bluetooth, you can use a cable

Do I need to install the program? Yes, you do, you get additional features.

The column can work for about 15 hours, the operating time is sincerely surprising: it seems to be a small device, but you will not need an outlet soon. That is why I would recommend UE Boom to anyone who often travels to nature, rides bikes, goes on picnics. I can't wait for the warm weather to be able to do all this. Please note that a cheerful yellow cable is included, and there is a microUSB connector on the bottom of the device.

When connected to an iPhone, the speaker charge indicator is displayed.

For me, the standard for speakers of this form factor is the JBL Pulse. This is where they contrived and did an incredible thing both in terms of design and sound.

UE Boom doesn't have any lights, but the sound quality is good, especially if you play with the equalizer (I liked the privacy setting) and don't try to turn on bad quality tracks, you can hear very well if there is some kind of rubbish. At maximum volume, the bass does not break into a wheeze, there is a noticeable sound effect around, listening to electronics is a pleasure, not electronics either. The best option for trips and picnics.

Still, compared to the Pulse, there is a slight lack of low frequencies. Everything else is great. If you are interested, I also listened to this recording.

Conclusions

In the USA, the speaker costs about two hundred dollars, we are asked for 10,000 rubles for it - in my opinion, this is expensive, few people know about Ultimate Ears, and even more so about UE Boom. However, if the price does not bother you, feel free to buy. Withstands staying at the beach, great app for iOS/Android, the ability to self-update the software, select presets, connect any equipment via Bluetooth or cable, good sound quality, cool design. If you want special effects, the JBL Pulse is worth it. If not, check out UE Boom, I liked the column.

I got a white and blue UE Boom, there is also a black with red accents, green with blue, pink, red and white with yellow. There are colored inserts in the volume buttons at the end, it is very reminiscent of a cross, and not for me alone. Nowhere without a nameplate with the company logo, this is already becoming a rule for manufacturers of a wide variety of equipment.

Dimensions are 18 x 6.5 cm, weight - 538 grams. There are no complaints about the assembly, the packaging is amusing, a sort of tube. The product is clearly aimed at young people, at least look at how the official website is designed.
