- UE Boom or Bose Soundlink Mini
I’ve narrowed it down to these two Bluetooth speakers. The Bose sounds better, but the UE is more rugged and I like the idea of the 360 degree sound. Any (informed) opinions? I’m open to new suggestions but please in this case size IS important- it’s gotta be small!! 😉 I’ve already ruled out the Braven BRV-1 on account of the sound quality.Posted 4 years agopop larkinMember
Very small- a similar size to the mini rig
Minirigs turn out some serious sound but I didn’t think they were bluetoothable- if that’s a proper word
Saying that minirigs seem to be hard to get hold of- one of the Godiva trail riders was cycling with one up at the runandride race at Cannock recently and you could hear him before you saw him!!Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
There’s always the Jawbone Jambox, which is about the same price. Ignore the Dr Dre Pill, I compared one to the Jambox, using the same music, and the Jambox pwned the Pill, which was £50 dearer. There’s the Big Jambox, but that’s £260, probably well outside your budget.Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
I have one of the below, which I don’t use enough, but is flippin’ brilliant. I’d recommend testing one out.Posted 4 years agowinston_dogMember
I was on a job last month and one of the guys had a UE Boom. It filled a good area of the deck with sound, this is with some background noise as well. I was extremely impressed by it, it’s not the same as a “proper” hi fi but it is very “360” and for a BBQ type scenario is perfect.Posted 4 years ago
It is also very robust, I think it is IP 57 or 67?
You can pair 2 of them up as well.
I have not heard the Bose, so if you say it has better sound then it must pretty amazing.TurnerGuyMember
I was listening to the bose soundlink ii and the UE boombox at gatwick a couple of weeks ago.
The bose soundlink ii was next to their soundlink airplay product, which is a little bigger.
I thought the soundlink ii was very average, and that the boombox sounded better, although neither were startling, just acceptable (bose less so).
The soundlink airplay was actually a fair bit better.
I haven’t heard them but the JBL flip and the large JBL charge get good reviews – if cabling a splitter and a couple of flips would be interesting possibly.Posted 4 years ago
