Ok, so I didn't buy this on Amazon, as I didn't want to wait on the shipping......I know, I'm impatient! I went to the local Big Box store and picked it up. After listening to it for a couple of days, I began to contemplate if I had made the right choice. So, I went to the local Bose store in Boca Raton, FL and asked if I could do a side by side with their units. A store associate gladly accepted my request/challenge, and we went into one of their sound rooms for product demos. He brought with him the Bose Mini and the Soundlink II.

I admit that I lean towards Bose due to my positive history with the company. All things considered, I expected a "blowout" with the Bose coming out on top. WAS I WRONG! First, we put the Boom and the Mini head to head. The Bose Associate controlled both units from his iPod Touch to start. He started with the Mini and switched over to the Boom. Both were played at 50% volume with a very noticeable difference in output. To clarify, the Mini's MAX volume was equivalent to the Boom's less than 75% volume output. In other words, the Boom was MUCH louder than the Mini. The employee was dumbfounded at this. I said ok, lets test the sound quality with a song that I find myself listening to quite often. It is Mothers Wingspan, by Ben Leinbach, which I think covers the sound spectrum pretty well.

We hooked both units to my phone for this test. Testing on the Mini began with a slight popping from the speaker. You could tell it was really straining. It should be noted that the volume on the Mini was set at 50%. The song was switched to the Boom, and the sound was phenomenal. Never did we hear popping from the Boom. However, at 80% volume you could begin to hear distortion, but by this point the volume was at an uncomfortable level (for your ears).

**Warning** This is an overly extensive review. I apologize for my rambling but I wanted to touch on everything.

Ok, so much like many of you may be, I was recently RACKING MY BRAIN over the decision between the two products: UE Boom and Bose Soundlink Mini. I went back and forth, almost day to day, before finally walking into BB and coming home with the UE. First let me me say I am completely unbiased when it comes to brand names. I make my electronic purchases based on my eyes and ears (and in this case - hands), with a small consideration of track record of the company. I say this because through the course of reading countless speaker reviews, it became apparent that there are Bose loyalists, and also Bose haters. So again, I'm unbiased. I consider myself pretty tech savy and I spend a lot of time researching the products I want before buying them. These two were no exception and I hope it will help you guys pull the trigger.....regardless of which one you pick. This is also the first time I've written a review on ANY product, EVER. Thus should reinforce my enthusiasm and happiness with the UE Boom.

I am 28 years old, living in Scottsdale, AZ. I spend a lot of time at my condo complex pool, playing sand volleyball, hiking, playing basketball, basically I live a pretty active lifestyle and all of the aforementioned activities leads me to the first factor that helped me choose the Boom:

PORTABILITY/DURABILITY - I love having expensive gadgets, but i HATE having to baby them or worry about them being broken or damaged. The Bose looked pretty tough, and I'm sure outside of simply dropping it, it would hold up fine. But I knew with the Bose i would be treating it like a rolls royce.

Ok - so I am not the most up to date kind of fellow but when my buddy brought a little 25 dollar speaker onto the golf course I was like, "yeah, I like that, I need something like that."

So I started with the HMDX Jam...hmmm 50 bux, fits in the cupholder. Sound was decent, about hole 15, bluetooth streaming - DEAD

Next up - JBL flip - better sound, 100 bux, Hole 16 dead.

So after all that money(got some back from Ebay), I order this for 200 bucks plus shipping so I spent about 230 total.

I got it yesterday at 3 pm. I took it straight out of the box. Charged it for the 10 minute drive to the course and played 18.

This bad boy was still playing while I loaded up my clubs!!

Sound is spectacular. It goes too loud really for a golf course which would turn into a bonus for say a pool party or garage buddy.


I am DONE looking for a bluetooth speaker that lasts, sounds good and gets loud enough. Do I wish it was a 130 or 140$? Sure, was I willing to pay a little more to not have to keep looking?

So, I've been testing a few bluetooth speakers this week. I'm your average techie but with a penchant for excellence. I prioritize quality over quantity.

Speakers tested at home: 1) Jawbone BIG Jambox, 2) Bose SoundLink Mini, 3) UE Boom.

Limits of testing: Tested using iPhone 5 6.1.4 and MacBook Pro 15" Early 2011 10.8.4. Did not test battery life. Did not test speaker phone features.

Note, many of these thoughts are personal preference.

UE Boom: LOUD! Practically as loud as the BIG Jambox. Would fill a family room or backyard patio easily. Strong focus on mids and highs. Almost no real lows. So the sound is very "crisp" and loud with minimal distortion, but "empty" sounding. Sounds decent at low volumes, more shrill at high. Less directional sound given the mesh all around with helps it sound louder and you get farther from it. I really like the USB charging and the nice compact charger and cable. Easy to pair. Don't especially like the appearance. Looks very "casual" and sort of cheapo. Seems like it would get knocked over easily. Feels durable though because of the rubber. Solid. Easiest and most carefree to transport of the three without a case. Like how the volume is sync'd with the iPhone and the battery indicator. Speakerphone option is plus, but did not test. If going for loud and price, would pick this one.

Big Jambox: Also loud. More full sounding than the UE Boom. The LiveAudio mode sounds amazing with many songs. Really makes the device sound "bigger" with more speakers. Great sound with similar priority given to lows, mids and highs. Decent sound at all volumes, shines at higher volumes. Has an audible hissing sound when it is actively on.
