[Canada Computers] UE Boom 2 bluetooth speaker new 69,99$ (pickup) All time low ??

Deal has been posted in the Anniversary sale post here : http://forums.redflagdeals.com/canada-c ... e-2273337/

Since this is a very popular bluetooth speaker and that this might be the all time low price I thought a better esposure might be good.

It must be picked up but there is stock at several stores.

Also noteworthy, the Megaboom wich has better bass and "fullness" can be bought for 129,99$ with free ship from BB 3rd party seller : https://m.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/ulti ... x/13370637

The boom 3 has also been released and sells for 199,99$ regular price but from reviews doesn't really improve sound over version 2, mostly some minor features and esthetic. Here is a complete comparison between Boom 2 and 3 : https://www.selectoguru.com/us/reviews/ ... rs-boom-3/

Upvoted because it's a great deal. Unsure why people are downvoting. Probably one reason why I avoid creating threads.
Well, I am not a crook.

This is an awesome deal. Just price match at best buy and they give you more discount because the price difference.

I used to have this, a bit tinny on bass, great for travel, beach and camping. We now have a Megaboom for same but it doesn’t get much use at home except maybe the backyard. We mainly use Alexa devices now.

IS the BB Deal for the Megaboom worth the extra $68 after taxes?

It’s up to you, it’s bigger to travel but I was pretty much boomin and with bass, at the lake, and on the Varadero beach over any other speaker (out of respect I lowered volume).

I was at BB a while ago.. the Megaboom is slightly bigger but sounds a little better with the deeper bass.. but this is after a side by side comparison.. but I don’t see that being worth the extra $72.. got the Boom 2 @ $75ish taxes in with PM

Thanks OP

Yes, it would be personal preference and more noticeable at higher volumes. At my friend’s cottage last summer, the Boom2 on the dock sounded more tinny and distorted. The Megaboom we could hear it well, farther out playing in the water.

I’m going to be returning mine back to heartland bb .. I’m personally not very happy.. cos I’m picky .. i got back home yesterday and played a few of music choices and I definitely would prefer the Megaboom 3 when it goes on sale.

Try downloading the UE boom app and play with the EQ. Helps a little.
