So what’s different?
1. The whole internal structure has changed to optimize the type of sound the Ultimate Ears group wanted to provide.
2. It is both louder and crisper at higher volumes as well. It is another class…to quote Spinal Tap, they’ve gone to 11 and further. As you can see in the video – the sound of the Boom at 1/3 is what the Box didn’t hit until 2/3rd of the way.
3. It has the same pairing capabilities as the more expensive, full sized Ultimate Ears Boom speaker (see video) to make stereo sound and improve the volume some more. Left/Right sound separation are a big deal here.
4. The Bluetooth range has now increased up to 50 feet from 33 which is a result of improved antenna design and power. Interesting note: The second speaker can be even further because it pairs with the first speaker, not the phone.
The UE Boom lets you pair two devices at once (the speaker remembers the last eight connected devices). You can stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth from up to 50 feet away with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 10 hours.
It may be small, but the UE MINI BOOM delivers big, bold sound. The stylish Bluetooth® speaker’s compact size means it’s well suited for traveling, entertaining friends or simply relaxing at home. Keep the music going with up to 10 hours of battery life. Need to mix up your playlist but don’t want to leave your friends? You can change the music on the fly using your smartphone from up to 50 feet away. Double the fun: Take turns playing the music by connecting two devices at once. You can even use MINI BOOM as a speakerphone if you need to make a call, and pair two speakers together for epic stereo sound.
