IPX4 – Protects from splashing water, no matter the direction. AKA Not very "waterproof". If you're looking for a $60 speaker thats waterproof, the UE Roll actually comes with a floaty that it can sit on in a pool, and is at costco for $59...

The UE Roll is great for that, The band on the back is really convenient to hang it, or clip it to a bag strap, etc. Great clear sound, and you can link a them together to another one if you had two. Enjoy your trip

They're both mediocre and overpriced. Sure the original Boom was "something" when it came out but it's long been surpassed by competitors, at typically lower prices. JBL's lineup is very similar but cheaper and better. UE started out good but just relies on their name now to uphold their high prices.

Anyway this is a decent deal, I'd recommend it for someone that already has a Boom--to add a second one to pair together. Other than that, wouldn't bother.

Flip 4 > Boom 2? (I didn't research)

I like that form factor, you can buy thick sturdy generic cases for around $20, and they take little room on a small table occupied by food, playing cards etc, vertical stance.

Took ours on a cruise and was perfect wherever we went on the ship and out on beach excursions hanging off an umbrella etc
