[Best Buy] UE Boom 2 - $99.99

I don't post often but was in the market for a waterproof bluetooth speaker.

Tons of great reviews on this thing and has all the features most people look for in a simple, waterproof speaker.

All the other standard colors are going for $149.99 but I didn't really care about color

Enjoy!

From what I read, JBL Flip 4 is a better buy, at least sound quality wise. Otherwise they're quite similar.

Good buy.

Pros:

Battery life, easily 8+ hours
Sound, the 360 sound is awesome
Bluetooth range is great, easily 75+ feet with walls in the way.

Makes me wanna get another for stereo sound.

The hype on RFD for this speaker is unreal. The thing has absolutely no bass response. Unacceptable at this price point imo. I returned mine after falling for the RFD hype.

Pretty much any bluetooth speaker even in the $40-50 price range will have better bass response than this.

It says you can't return to a best buy store. Has to be done through the seller. I was thinking about buying just to compare to the head rush bt speaker. Has anyone had to return items like this and how does it work?

The original UE Boom was epic when it came out. Nowadays though, JBL has mostly caught up on ruggedness and its sound is a bit more fuller.

Where does it say that? It's sold & shipped by Best Buy. Their standard return policy applies.

Boom2 is kinda tinny, I have one. We also have a Megaboom, much fuller bassier sound but it's $180 on sale vs $100 here.
