3 December 2014
Summary: If you want one of the smallest portable speakers out there, we can certainly recommend Logitech’s UE Mini Boom. Even though it’s small, it sounds good, has NFC and speakerphone support, and you can get it for under $100.
Pros: The speaker is small enough to fit in a cargo pocket but still has powerful sound.
Cons: There are no controls on the speaker itself for changing the song or playing or pausing audio.
Summary: At £79, it's a fairly pricey speaker, but at almost half the price of its bigger Boom brother, it still manages to pack a hefty punch in the sound department. It's smaller, and it's not as powerful, but it's still great at delivering you quality sound in a very small package, plus its long lasting battery just keeps on chugging.
Summary: Straight to the point, you'd be hard pressed to find a better looking and superior sounding speaker than the Logitech UE Mini Boom in this price range. It delivers loud audio without distortion, is able to store multiple Bluetooth devices, can answer phone calls, and can even be paired with a second speaker for stereo sound.
We also like the stylish design and handful of color options. In fact, outside of the weak bass playback, there's not a lot to dislike here.
Pros: Diverse Selection:, Loud Sound:, Pair 'em Up!:, Bluetooth Bonanza:, Compact and Rugged:
Cons: Where's the Bass?:, Lacks Most Media Controls:
Summary: If I’m going to use a wireless Bluetooth speaker it has to meet a few important criteria. Number one, it’s got to have decent battery life. The Mini Boom gets an A+ there, offering 10 hours of usage. For me that means I can use it an entire day on a single charge and I can’t ask for more than that. Number 2, it has to be durable. If it’s portable I’m going to be taking it places. The Mini Boom gets another A+ there.
Pros: Durable. Great battery life. Can pair two units together.
Cons: Doesn’t come with AUX cable. iPhone app only. Music controls all done on device.
Excerpt: My first impression of this product was the packaging. Solid rectangular box, clear plastic showing the product inside… I just really liked it. Very attractive packaging, ideal shape for wrapping as a gift. This device looks like it’s going to put out some tin-sounding, no-bass having music-from-a-can sound. I had modest expectations for this thing from the start. I took it out, turned it on, and couldn’t believe my ears OR eyes.
Excerpt: Oh boy, it’s YAPBSR (yet another portable Bluetooth speaker review)! Hey don’t press the back button yet, this particular little speaker has a lot going for it. It’s the UE MINI BOOM and it’s made by Ultimate Ears (owned by Logitech), who make some of the best in-ear headphones on the market. When a notable headphone maker branches out into speakers, it’s worth taking a look. So let’s go. Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger size.
Pros: Impressive sound, Easy NFC pairing, Can connect 2 for wide stereo separation
UE Mini Boom: Is this the $99 wireless speaker to get?

Summary: While it doesn't do that much to stand out from the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers in the $60-$100 range, the well-built and decent sounding (for its size) UE Mini Boom is a pretty safe choice for those looking for a very compact wireless speaker.
Pros: The UE Mini Boom is a very compact Bluetooth speaker that has a built-in rechargeable battery, speakerphone capabilities, a line input, and ruggedized design. It sounds good for its small size and can be combined with a second Mini Boom to create a stereo pair. It sounds slightly better than its predecessor, the UE Mobile Boombox.
Cons: Yes, the Mini Boom's bass is slightly improved, but it still can't produce a ton of bass.
Conclusion: With innovative features, a warm and detailed sound signature, and reams of power, UE’s Mini Boom makes a strong pitch as the new leader in the entry-level portable speaker category. At this size and price point, you’ll have a very difficult time finding a speaker that outperforms the Mini Boom, let alone two of them paired together.
Pros: Warm, full midrange, Impressive bass response, Powerful max volume, Innovative features, Affordable
Cons: Won’t charge your device, Tends to “dance around” with heavy bass

Pros: - Compact size - High volume levels, strong bass - Decent to above-average sound quality - Can pair with second speaker in stereo or mono
Cons: - Pairing option largely impractical - Most controls relegated to mobile apps - Limited fidelity range
