Alpha: I can't decide. On Amazon the Bose costs 165€ and the Boom costs 140€. I
probably wouldn't use the speaker much outside and people are saying the SL
Mini sounds better. But the Boom has a better battery life, comes with a
micro usb cable wich I also need for my Phone and an app. Wich one should I
Praxe One: Bose = More Bass
Boom = Louder & Clearer
beastfighter1: The UE Boom sounds clearer but the Bose has more bass. I just can't decide!
stvnburg: Great review
Ákos Kulcsár: The Bose Soundlink Mini comes with a charging dock inclided in the box and
it also has a micro USB port on the downside of it.
pumppuppy1: Great review, i decided to go with the Bose sound link, thanks for the
DanLiveOnUTube: Good solid, no-bullcrap review dude. Keep it up :D
Linoxh: Nice review!!!! This is exactly the video I looked for 😊. Thank you!
Pure Artists: I went with UE Boom. Depending on the size of the space you are using it
in, you can use the mobile app to do some simple EQ. I got it for $180 CDN
on sale. Now, I am a music guy so I wanted good sound on the road...so I
actually bought two. I love the feature to be able to pair them through
Bluetooth in the app and you can run them stereo. The sound is amazing as
I travel and am in hotel rooms and they easily fit into the front pocket of
my travel bag. I listened to the Bose and though it does sound amazing, it
was missing some of the higher frequencies that really make the UE Boom
Fidel Pena: what does the frequency test determine?
sameer kadam: Good review ... cheers !!
Alexander Loyen: bose is al lot of better i have this 2 speakers en the 95% of my friends
find bose the best
twaii1208: thanks for the video. I got a JBL Flip now but I want a new one with
waterproof, I want one like JBL Flip sound like more bass. Is SL mini
waterproof? I mostly use in bathroom. thanks!
KJAAN: There is no debate on this that UE is much better in sound quality and is
oceansole: yeah Nigtwish!!!! :D
WeLuvFreedom team: my Phillips SB52000 does so much better then these . even better thn beats
pills. if you want best quality portable and hood base and treble speakers
go for the Phillips. u won't regret it. it's more affordable too. and u can
change your base settings easily
AustyLu: Watched this video, purchased the EU Boom and I'm loving it. Nice review
Jimmy Page: the ultimate speaker is the Harman Kardon Onyx -- test drive one near you
Don Nguyen: Which speaker has the loudest, clearest sound and great bass?
jesus carballo: i had the opportunity to test both, i purchased my sound link mini almost a
year ago and my buddy got the UE as a gift recently, they both good
speakers, i have to admit that the ue boom is def louder but not "clearer",
mids are also more pronounced on the ue however i think it lacks the bass
and crisp highs as the bose, the ue also does a better job playing out in
the open, while bose recommends to place the speaker close to a wall for
optimum bass response, i can honestly say you can't go wrong with either
just choose whatever fits your needs, i personally value sound quality over
"loudness" so i'm keeping the sound link mini for it's bulletproof design
and sound quality
shinkentom: If you want good sound, get the BOSE soundlink mini. I purchased the UE
boom, tried it out and returned it back for a BOSE. The UE boom sounds
muffled. Yes, the Bose has a shorter battery, but I'd rather have a shorter
time with good sound rather than listening to poor sound longer. The UE
boom might have an app and other stuff but if a speaker cannot produce good
quality sound, then I think its failed its purpose. The UE boom sounds ok
until you hear the BOSE. (In case you are wondering.....I bought the UE
boom just because the demo UE booms at the store were not working, I heard
the Bose and wanted to give the UE boom a try)
Sidharth Pillai: The UE Boom sounds more upfront and the Bose more laid back, which results
in the UE Boom being clearer. But the Bose really makes up for it with the
bass... Tough choice.
johannes knobloch: Ich hab die original stöpsel für die klinke und den usb-anschluß verloren
glaubs du andere aus Silikon halten auch das ganze dicht?
Eduardo J. Pacheco: I'm looking for a more compact speaker so I can use at work discretely
notthere83: Hehe nice choice of songs.
From the way they sound though, both speakers seem to suck (one overly
bright, the other too muddled and "boomy") and I'll stick with my
Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones for watching movies and listening to music.
If I happen to have somebody over, I'll just tell them to bring their own
Rodney Cole: This guy has the bose soundlink replica, it's not authentic at all check
out the video soundlink mini original vs replica
steve6493: went away with 8 friends to Queensland. took my UE and another mate had
his bose. everyone on the trip was really impressed with the UE, even the
bose owner. It's a much better PORTABLE speaker. dropped it several
times, got it wet, got sand on it at the beach, no issues. it louder, has
the perfect amount of battery life, and it gets better with every firmware
update (although it still isn't free of glitches).
Josh: UE boom is louder, but bose has better sound
Robo Dinosaurs: Honestly, the UE is the better speaker, 360 sound, double the battery life
of the bose, steel consturction so it isnt going to break if you drop it,
water resistant and stain resistant, free app, you can pair two together, I
love mine, its awesome. I think I read someone saying about the bass, you
can actually change the EQ on the app for more bass which beats the bose
1337Serbia1337: UE sound so better than bose
Chen Xiongjie: Very nice comparison. I have a Bose sounddock system and it's very nice.
Looks like the minilink has similar character as sounddock.
After some time with bose I'm a little tired of the much bass(still good
made bass). Sometime it loses the ability for mid-high part and makes the
high part little 'dry'.
I'm thinking to consider UE boom more to enjoy more balanced/natural
music(specially when apply to classic music). Just a thinking...
rollingdice714: UE Boom sounds "muffled" compared to Bose Soundlink mini. Basically because
underneath the speaker grills in UE Boom there is a layer of material there
to insulate the speakers from dirt of water wich greatly supresses sound.
You really have to hear them in person, sound quality through videos
greatly depresiates clarity . Another thing to remember is you sacrifice
sound for "splash resistance" with UE Boom which is no where near wate
resistant. Just letting you guys know because I did the test and Bose takes
it in sound.
Trilce: Hey...good review. One thing. All things seem to point to the UE boom's
battery not being replaceable, so after a year or two it is just a brick.
Your opinion on this?
Wayne S: My wife bought me the UE Boom after going to Best Buy and listening to the
young people that work there. We as older folks don't have the sound
talents. I did hook it up for Christmas and it was really awesome out on
the pool patio area. I kind of like the shape as it stands anywhere and
sounds everywhere. I think it seems it would have much more portability
used outside the house. I LIKE IT. I liked the video post too. Great job.
ogromeo714: Wow by the test it seems the boom sounds better than the Bose . I thought
the nose would have sounded better.
Fred: Great review! Got this speaker for $16 because it was a promotion for
TMobile since a got a new phone
xXEliteTNCXx: I want everything the UE Boom's got - however with bass ... any
West Aust Rider: UE Boom currently on sale for $168 at JB HI FI
CoE Wripple: Should have done a long distance test. I work retail for both these systems
and can tell you that the Mini is the only small bluetooth who's surround
sound can fill an entire warehouse clearly with very little distortion.
Jun Master: At first glimpse on the internet, I thought UE design was lame, that
reminded me of a coffin with a cross inscribed on it. But in real life, it
looks way better, although I wouldn't say it's better than Bose design. The
thing is, after 3 months of daily use, I don't really care about the
appearance anymore, just like how you don't much care about your gf's (or
bf's) face after dating several months. In sound quality wise, it's really
really difficult to compare with Bose because they have divergent styles.
UE tends to be more sincere to the original recording, while Bose adds
their signature sweetener (tight bass) on it. Just choose the one that
pleases you more.
Product Informer: Hi everyone im just a little channel at the minute with a limited budget.
I have a few videos up and would love to hear your feed back on them. It
would be amazing if you subscribed while your there. Thank you
Wes Mantooth: Boom sounds much better and its overall functionality is superior
Guy Fuller: Thorough well balanced review, excellent work!
Niv K: Thanks for your excellent review, the best and by far the most
comprehensive I've seen. You answered all my questions - the main one being
I was worried from reading various reviews that the UE Boom is useless
after the battery finally dies. However, I gathered from your comments
that I can still use it if it is plugged in to a power source. The UE Boom
is on sale and priced A$135 (US$114) at the moment whereas the Bose SL mini
is still around A$200. So I'm guessing at this price the UE Boom is a no
brainer (?). Planning to get this today. Cheers
Antony Xiao: Please use headphones/earphones/buds
The sound on your phone/computer speakers is distorted. and plus the test
results will be much clear
Ricky Tjong: So basically the UE boom is just brighter sounding. While the Bose has a
warmer tone to it.
Julie Secher: Which one of these two has the best bass? And which one du you like the
most all around?
Ralph Sagun: I think ue boom is better than Bose mini. But i still think that some
people still likes Bose mini
LG x HORRORZz: UE Boom(200$) and JBL Charge II (130$)are One of the Greatest portable
speakers at this time. I have the JBL charge II now. very happy with it.
but UE Boom is Fantastic!
Colin Barry: +Gamamori You should grab a Denon Evanya Mini and do some sound tests. It
