I guess like most people looking for a Bluetooth speaker the choices for this price range £120 to £200 will be down to just 2 at this present time (March 2014) The Ultimate Ears UE Boom or the Bose Soundlink Mini - both retailing at about £160 each,

I've been looking for a few years for the ideal portable companion, and for many years many were out but all were just not good enough and i gave in and for the last couple years bought a pair of XMI X-MI X-mini MAX v1.1 Capsule which did me fine on holidays, park parties etc etc etc - but quality wise was not there at all nor was the volume.

For the last 6 months - traveling a lot through airports - I listened to both the UE and the Bose - and they are very close contenders.

Bose: amazing sound quality - design great - good build quality, but for me i did not feel it was a portable enough to bring out and about... the design of Bose seems to be more in home, room portable - with great sound quality, maybe slightly deeper in sound base. great product!!

UE Boom: Again, always comparing both - but due to portability, volume is great, sound quality compared to other portable products is amazing and i opted to buy the UE Boom, and I so don't regret it!

Saying that - in this price range - comparing is important - and i urge all to compare both the Bose and the UE! everyone will have their preference and they are in my opinion the only two competitors in this price range.

Why the UE? despite negative remarks on battery life online - mine goes on forever - on product specs says 15 hours, compared to 7 on the Bose, its so much more portable and rugged to bring out with you and party wherever you are as it goes louder than the Bose. that was my choice and I love it!

After much much deliberation between this and the soundlink mini (and having heard the mini in store - but not this), I had a few one night and got persuaded to purchase this... And what a great decision it was!

***Sound Quality***

The sound quality is excellent. The bass response, as has been mentioned in other reviews, can be lacking at times. But to be honest, all other frequencies are marvellously clear and enjoyable to listen to. The '360 degree sound' is genuinely one of those features you just don't realise the importance of until you have the device. The soundlink mini and cambridge audio go both have very directional sound and failed to impress me in store. The mini was nice sounding, but at higher volumes the sound resembled that of an underwater speaker compared to the UE boom. it also had a very directional sound and just didn't sound the same from behind. If you think about a portable speaker, you're not always going to find the optimum location for your ears, especially if you're out with friends or on a trip, and this is where the 360 sound shines! The bass, although not as good as the bose, is absolutely adequate for a portable speaker of this size, and i don't notice the deficiency 90% of the time! Besides, you won't be perpetually comparing them!

I would recommend having the speaker near ear level height-wise (and this imporves bass too!, as does the bass boost option on the excellent included app), but the D-ring on the UE boom helps with this as you can hang it up somewhere. Overall the sound is bright and punchy. I love great sounding speakers and I would choose this over the soundlink mini again if I had to - the 360 sound, bright quality throughout volume range, and clarity clinch it!

Colour Name: Black Night
After returning my Bose Soundlink Mini (it developed a fault and I opted for a refund), I went looking around (yet again!) for a bluetooth speaker. I looked at all the usual suspects in the £100-£200 range, and eventually decided upon the UE Boom!

Here's why...

What is it?
The UE Boom is a wireless Bluetooth speaker. In short, if you've got a smartphone (ie. any Android or iPhone) or tablet (eg. Nexus, Kindle Fire or iPad) or even a modern laptop you can wirelessly stream (play) music from your device. No wires, no fuss just great sound quality!

What I needed?
In order of priority:-

1. Sound Quality - needs to be top class. I'm no audiophile, but at £150+ I want the best possible full, rich and (ideally) room filling sound
2. Portability - I want to use it around the house, and out on the occasional picnic or outdoor event
3. Rugged - It needs to be a little rugged. Not that I'm taking it to rock festival mud bath - but I want to use it in the bathroom in the morning and not have it break down
4. Battery Powered - Goes with portability really. I needs to be include a rechargeable battery. At least 5-6 hours.
5. Linked up - Ideally I'd like to have one permanently in the bathroom, with the option to buy another and stream to them both.
6. Line in - so I can plug in an MP3 player or external CD player (optional)

In reality only 1-4 were mandatory. The rest I could live without.

How does it work?
You simply "pair" the speaker and phone/iPad and play your music or radio.
