beastfighter1: The UE Boom sounds clearer but the Bose has more bass. I just can't decide!
StandUrGroundNFight: I bought the UE boom, and some of my friends have the Bose SL mini. They
both sound great but Bose has a better bass. Still, I chose UE boom because
I don't feel like I can bring Bose to the beach or to a garden party or to
any outdoor activity, it just doesn't look and feel like that. It looks
great but it feels like it's for indoor use, like at home, or at a nice
office. But the thing is, I don't need a bluetooth speaker at home, the
main reason for me to buy this is to use it outdoors, especially at the
places that I mentioned above like sandy beaches, or when camping in a
forest, or at a garden barbecue party etc. It handles those conditions
David Sheehan: Coming from someone who has 2 UE booms and a Bose mini the Bose is better
for sound quality and build is stunning. The booms are better outdoors in
stereo and are more rugged ... Hope this helps someone choose!
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
mondo mandar: which one is the best for playing classical music/ instrumental music ?
好吃六塊雞: After watched this video I decide to buy Bose
The canon guy: What is wat watching price quality better, the jbl flip 2 or the Bose
Rob Ztar: You didn't mention at all that the BOSE comes with a docking station which
can be used to charge the device by just putting it on there and the cable
will only go into the dock. I think that is an awesome feature.
dhyaneswaran sengottuvel: Hey buddy!
your review is clear and covers every area that can be covered. thanks for
Now I have a question for you to answer, which is if I remove the battery
of Mini would I still be able to use the speaker with just the power
adapter? Please try it and then let me know, because I am planning to buy
it and use the same as my sole speaker, and so I do not want that to be
continuously on charge spoiling the battery.
Hellslayer: Which Bluetooth speaker has the most clarity?
Don Nguyen: Which speaker has the loudest, clearest sound and great bass?
FerretGhost: The Bose is awesome
Eduardo J. Pacheco: I'm looking for a more compact speaker so I can use at work discretely
stvnburg: Great review
mark jackson: Is There Any Other Cheap Brand Thats Closed To The Bose
frager fragen: Is bose louder ?
Sevrin-13: I just bought a UE boom and after not being able to find the device on my
laptop, was told by tech support that it was incompatible with my laptop,
and I'm only left with the option of returning it. Wtf? I'm not the most
tech savvy person in the world but this seems ridiculous.
pumppuppy1: Great review, i decided to go with the Bose sound link, thanks for the
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
Jordon Grubic: Is the Logitech UE more sound-accurate than its predecessor, the Logitech
Bluetooth wireless boombox?
Linoxh: Nice review!!!! This is exactly the video I looked for 😊. Thank you!
Ghillie Nation: My boy has the ue boom and I have the skull candy air raid.. we put them up
against each other and the my air raid took it for the win. Was louder and
had more thump to it.
Ally Nik: Got the Bose Soundlink Mini and I'm very happy about it, like them more
than the UE-Boom in cause of the sound quality and the amazing bass. I can
really recommend them :)
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?
WillThisLast: Thank you for helping me decide to get Bose :)
KJAAN: There is no debate on this that UE is much better in sound quality and is
Wes Mantooth: Boom sounds much better and its overall functionality is superior
Krzysztof Blazejewicz: The Bose Soundlink color has mcro usb cable charger so you can charge
within any micro usb cable/charger.
Fidel Pena: what does the frequency test determine?
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
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.
James Pinkney: Is it possible to change tracks directly from the UE speaker?
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).
Jimmy Page: the ultimate speaker is the Harman Kardon Onyx -- test drive one near you
heejun um: Wow thanks for good information i think u are the best and can u tell me
which one is better?? I still don't get it thank u
DanLiveOnUTube: Good solid, no-bullcrap review dude. Keep it up :D
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.
Edgar van Oeveren: Hello Gamamori, could you tell me which app you use to send the 60 Hz
frequency and the frequency reader on you Ipad ? Thanks
Christian Freichel: Also, you forgot, that the Bose SoundLink Mini has a charging station,
which the UE Boom doesn't have. The bose has a fantastic bass. It's like a
big speaker, but MUCH tinier.
Alexander Loyen: bose is al lot of better i have this 2 speakers en the 95% of my friends
find bose the best
Gavin Baker: I've gone through about 7 different portable speakers (Thanks yo PC Worlds
instant replacement) I've had the UE Boom, Soundlink colour and now have
the Soundlink Mini. In my opinion, they're two totally different speakers
and are both amazing. The UE's good if you just want volume, but at high
volume (which it does with ease) it just doesn't sound great, i was forever
trying to get more bass out of it, portable amps (which meant I had to use
the aux cable), separate EQ and the UE's EQ. It just doesn't produce a full
sound. However, i was stunned with the amount of bass the bose produces,
it's truly astonishing, it may not be as loud, but the sound is so much
more pleasing and although it doesn't go as loud as the UE, i was never
seeking for more volume. The bose is also surprisingly strong, (maybe not
as strong as the UE) but it's had quite a few falls, off my desk, off my
outside wall, fell out of my bag and actually it still looks new and is
fully functional. In my opinion, go with the Bose, it's got more than
enough volume to fill an average size living room and it fills it with
great sound, and in my opinion, it looks more premium and stay looking
premium, unlike the UE that picks up scuffs too easily!
West Aust Rider: UE Boom currently on sale for $168 at JB HI FI
glasssofOJ: Romanian accent?
Jeff Gallagher: EU boom destroyed the bose, and the bass issue can be fixed with the EU app
just tap extra bass.
Static KK: Bose has a richer sound IMO..
igor fuentes: they are the best speakers ever, but the battery get damaged with
prolongued use, and nobody tells you THAT, and you stay with your 200 dlls
paperweight, don't buy this speakers!!!.
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
WLF 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
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.
