Though it’s outpaced by the JBL Charge 3, the UE Boom 2 earns a close second place in The Verge’s selection of the best Bluetooth speakers. If you’re looking for a solid performer with near 360-degree sound and good battery life, this speaker
is was a near-steal at Dell for $59 (it usually retails at $179.)
Unlike some other Bluetooth speakers, the UE Boom 2 is shockproof and waterproof, and it can be mounted on just about any camera tripod to elevate the sound.
Update July 10th 3:12PM ET: The UE Boom 2 appears to be sold out. We’ll update this page if it comes back in stock.
