Gadgets and Gear: UE Boom 2
September 30, 2015|CM Voice
Gadgets & Gear will be a chance to look at some rad new gadgets (and gear) which we think are worth highlighting. First up is the UE Boom 2 wireless Bluetooth speaker.
- What is it?
The UE Boom 2 wireless speaker is an updated version of Logitech’s popular Bluetooth speaker. These small, travel-size, wireless speakers are perfect to play music from phones, tablets, and even laptops when you’re on-the-go.
- What’s cool about the Boom 2?
The previous version sounded great for its size, but the new version learns to swim and gets complete waterproofing—compared to being only splash resistant before. The Boom 2 also adds play/pause gestures so you don’t need to reach for your phone with dirt hands. Smacking the top of the speaker will pause/play music, while hitting it twice will skip songs.
-IPX7 waterproofing (30 mins. at 3M)
-Improved volume (claimed 25% louder than original Boom speaker)
-Improved wireless connection at 100 feet.
-Added more player controls without adding buttons
The UE Boom 2 retails for $199 and will be on sale at the end of September.
