beastfighter1: The UE Boom sounds clearer but the Bose has more bass. I just can't decide!
Marcus Octavius: so you could go diving with the ue boom?
stvnburg: Great review
Nick Masini: How's the bass at high volumes? I have a JBL charge which is good, but
lacks the volume I need. Plus when it gets past 80% volume it just sounds
Tarik Scherrenburg: +Gamamori , do you think these two are the top choices for portable
speakers? if so, which would you recommend if I plan to take it on school
and sports trips: busses, parks, hotel rooms etc. Also, does the boom come
with a carrying case?(or is it tough enough to not use one
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
Richard Cryderman: Thanks Gamamori I enjoy watching your reviews I have one question about
Bose. If the unit is stationary and I have the power adaptor plug in
directly or through the cradle will the unit play by Bluetooth or the 3.5
jack with the battery remove? I thinking if that's the case it may extend
the life of the battery.
L. V. Gargiulo: Hey Gammamori nice video, but I have a question, for anyone really. If I
buy two UE Boom units can I link them to play in stereo WITHOUT the
Iphone/android software? Thank you.
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.
Guy Fuller: Thorough well balanced review, excellent work!
James Pinkney: Is it possible to change tracks directly from the UE speaker?
GQstyless: UE Boom or beats Pill?
Илья Чернышов: please tell me that in the application you used for sound proofing?
Sam Fidal: Professional reviewer ! thx dude
Mass Sniper SevenTen: i have seen the CNET review and they say that BOSE has it Waterproof too
2legit2hit: Does the UE Boom float? It's water-resistant, but is it waterproof? How
much can it take? Also, is it sand/ mud resistant (or -proof)?
Rome Seekoh/RunDesigns: WHICH ONE IS LOUDER?
mostafa massoud: +Gamamori I have a question, is it possible to pair the UE Boom with
another bluetooth speaker? or it has to be only another UE?
Raul Espinoza: Logitech is much louder and sounds better
MrCyaltrbye: Bose soundlink mini is the best portable speaker I've heard by far. 5
months after purchase you'll love it the same as you did the day after you
bought it. Can't say the same for the UE
Ed Elefante: I've decided to go with the UE Boom. I do a lot of camping and the Boom is
a better fit for that environment. Has anyone reviewed the new Fugoos? I
heard they are like the GoPros of Bluetooth Speakers?! I priced them out
and they are a little more expensive than the UE Boom and they have a cool
interchangeable cover system. I have been reading they sound better than
the UE Boom. Wished some stores around here in Arizona had them to demo!
Jun Lopez: Nice review. Can you play the UE BOOM while on charge?
SirJosephicus: Thanks a ton, this was a great comparison
LukasSkate2: which of these is the louder one?
I´m searching for a mobile speaker , for an bbq with friends
Marcus Coster: Or instead of combining the two, use a quarter of the money and make your
own that is louder, clearer, and whatever design you fancy.
diablue solis: some like ue boom , but more cheap??? any suggestion???
Kevin Cassidy: The Bose sounded muffled and mid bass heavy
Lee McGavin: My friend introduced me to the UE Boom, we were dancing down Rue Oberkampf
collecting strangers on the way to the club! So many tears I wish I had the
money to buy a UE Boom!
TheBudhistpunk: Anybody thinking of buying the boom definitely should. It's a fantastic bit
of kit. This is coming from a guitarist of 20 years with a TSL2000 and a
celestian 4x12. You wont be disappointed.
Kevin Lamarche: Hi , I am looking for a portable speaker with exceptional sound quality, I
searched endlessly and ended up with these two speakers... First of all ,
which of these two have the best sound (quality and loudness) ; second of
all , is there a better sounding speaker in this size factor? (Like the jbl
flip, jbl charge , jbl pulse , beats pill 2.0?)
Your reviews are exceptional, when I look for anything this is the place I
come to! Thank you !
MultiSnoppen: is there anyone who has noticed and think like me. that after the software
update for the ue boom. it seems that the sound is not as clear anymore :/
And is there anybody who knows if one can restore ue boom to fabrication
settings in any way?
Marco Christensen: Very professional Review!
Mighty Quinn: The BOSE is some crap..
marctorres654: bose is not the best
diablue solis: excellent video, thank you, ue boom rocks¡
Hey I'm Mateo: Which one would you personally chose?
patdugas: In your video, the UE Boom sounds way better, the Bose is boxy sounding. I
think it all comes down to what you want to do with it. For home use, the
Bose is probably the best choice but, for any other use I'd go with the UE
for it's design, features and loudness.
Tung Dinh: From the review I feel that UE Boom got the better sound (i.e. similar to
surround function). I decided to go for the Boom. But when I arrived at the
store, I tried both speakers and Bose got something quite different. So I'm
with a Bose now. I guess it's maybe because of the distance from the
speakers to your camera and/or the height of the camera while UE Boom was
basically "standing" and the Bose was "lying". Either way, thanks for the
indepth review, it's a pro one!
gerson crisostomo: Guys I need your help which one is better UE Boom or Bose Soundlink Mini?
fatcat2939: Manufacturers could easily produces a quarter wave enclosure that was
It would be compact with good bass extension/low distortion.
thae109: I loved the Soundlink Mini until I actually took it to one of my family
outings to the river. The first thing that made me love the Mini was the
fact that in my house, it sounded very loud and the sound quality was
great. So back to what happened at the river. First of all, I had a
backpack with me and I didn't feel that comfortable putting it in the
backpack without putting something to protect it, so I covered it with one
of my beanies. So when we got to the river, I positioned the Mini on a tree
but again with a blanket under it because I didn't want to damage it. So
once we started to play music at full volume it was great and what I
expected. That was until I went to grab some snacks that we're positioned a
little bit to the side of the speaker and I start noticing that the sound
basically stayed right in front of the speaker. It was disappointing
because we we're a lot of people and only the ones that we're positioned
directly in front of it we're able to hear the great little speaker. Not
only that, I thought it could have been a bit louder too. So after we came
back from the river, I immediately stared looking for the supposed second
best blue tooth speaker under $200 and I stumbled upon the UE BOOM. It was
everything I was looking for. Rugged, loud, clear and not distored at high
volume, speakerphone, water resistant, and the best thing I like, 360°
sound. The overall sound quality is better on the Bose but really the only
thing that makes the Bose better is that it has just a bit more Bass, other
than that, it's pretty much equal in quality to the UE BOOM. So I ended up
selling my Mini and I went out and bought the UE BOOM! I also wanted to
recommend and mention that I also own the Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth
Speaker which I also took into account when ultimately deciding what
speaker I wanted since the Stanmore is not rechargeable and is more of an
in home speaker. Just wanted to leave my .02 cents since I wish i would've
seen something like this before buying the Mini.
MRshifT11100: i need a really good bluetooth speaker for great bass but still in a
reasonable price range need help!!
Kula Fit: ue boom sounds nice but its flat and boring, soundlink mini is more
expensive but i bought it because its fun to listen and it made me happy :)
buy what makes you happy. in my opinion bose is a better choice :)
Mark D: This is a very thorough review. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of
these two units with us. Lets just remember that it is impossible to
reproduce accurate sound through a speaker and enclosure this small. not to
mention that without proper channel separation a soundstage cannot exist.
Both of these units are making compromises in order to achieve a sound that
the company has decided is more pleasing to the human ear. My advice is go
to the store and listen to some of your favorite songs on each and see
which one sounds better to you. but lets not forget that these are not real
speakers and they never will be. They are portable music players intended
for casual listening in a social environment.
Mrcheesydancer: The bose sounds really good in real life, I think the bose sound quality is
better because in this video the bose speakers weren't really facing the
direction of the camera which made that the UE sounded louder and clearer
but the best bang for your buck is the UE sins it sounds good and can take
bao baok: Testing them with rock music was what I needed. I can cross bose out of my
jansend: Excellent review, thank you!
harki singh: Bose I have bought a lot of speakers but Bose is the best
BRENDAN THEBEAST: the ue boom sounds much more natural
