    UE MINI BOOM vs Logitech Mobile Boombox, November 1, 2013

    I searched for hours looking for a comparison between the two speakers, and couldn’t find one. Hopefully google will take you to this review if you’re looking for the same information!

    The bottomline is as follows: although the hardware is exactly the same between the two products, the internals are completely different and you will have a much better experience with the UE MINI BOOM.

    For the remainder of this review, I will refer to the MINI BOOM as UE and Mobile Boombox as Logitech (I know they are both owned by Logitech).

    I tried to pinpoint the major differences:
    - The UE mini boom volume is directly tied to your device’s volume. No fine tuning allowed. The Logitech speaker has its own volume controls that let you dial in on the perfect volume for your environment (winner: Logitech)
    - There is an App in the Apple App Store that lets you see battery life and connect a second UE to have a stereo steup (winner: UE)
    - I played several songs over and over on the two bluetooth speakers and recruited a few friends to help me do a blind test. The UE is noticeably richer in sound and has a deeper bass. However, if you haven’t heard the two devices side-by-side, you would probably still be very impressed with the Logitech sound quality (winner: UE).
    - The packaging on the UE is nicer, if you’re in to that kind of thing (winner: UE).
    - Logitech is cheaper at the time of this review (winner: Logitech)

    You will need to make your call on whether the improved sound quality and battery meter are worth the extra X dollars for the UE. That being said, you will not regret your purchase no matter which speaker you go with.

    Extraordinary Power and Convenience in a Small Package, October 10, 2013

    At $99 at the time of this writing, Logitech’s Ultimate Ears division has provided a product that was exactly what I was looking for (as a mobile undergraduate) at a reasonable price. The MINI BOOM lives up entirely to its namesake, and certainly is a worthy upgrade to its predecessor, the UE Mobile Boombox (Now $79.99 on Amazon.)

    The retention of the old design is welcomed. While the MINI BOOM lacks the 360-degree sound functionality of the $200 UE BOOM, the design of the MINI promotes its usage more as a personal speaker on a desk or table, not for parties or large social gatherings where music is blared. The MINI BOOM’s design, however, does provide one of its key selling points: ultimate portability. The unit sits comfortably in the palm of my hand, weighs very little, and easily fits into pockets in my backpack as I’m on the go. As a college student, I plan on being able to carry it around to use at football tailgates, trips to other places, and simply for some background music whilst studying with friends. The rubberized molding surrounding the unit and the metal grilles on either side are extremely durable, making it water resistant to an extent but not completely through the grille. The sizing of the buttons (two volume and a bluetooth on top, power switch on back) makes it easy to adjust volume or link to a new device. No problems linking it to my PC or Galaxy S3.

    As far as sound goes, the unit is LOUD. Playing at maximum volume, the MINI BOOM could be heard far down the hallway of my dorm, with the unit itself moving some serious air (you could feel it!) around it. It also vibrated a lot, but did not shake around (due to the rubber gripping) so I have no fears of it falling off a table (which it could probably survive if it did anyway!) The sound is as clear as you’d expect from 2 1-inch drivers. In particular I was surprised at the clarity of the highs and lows. They could be distinctly made out, though don’t expect the thumping bass of a real subwoofer or high quality tweeters.

    At $99, the newly released MINI BOOM by Ultimate Ears is extremely portable while providing a much higher-than-anticipated quality of sound at more than enough volume. Battery life is advertised at up to 10 hours, plenty for the tiny unit. The combination of convenient, but sturdy design, ample volume, sound quality, and ease of use earns a 5/5 from me. Highly recommended.

    Note: I only ordered 1 MINI BOOM, so I cannot comment on how well the dual-linking feature works. The app available for smartphones is pretty clean and straightforward. Easy to use.

    Comparison between UE Mini Boom and Bose Soundlink Mini, October 17, 2013
    By 
    -x- “-x-” (Mars, PA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker/Speakerphone – Black (Personal Computers)
    I’d already purchased the Bose Soundlink mini for home use and decided to pick up two of the UE Mini Boom for the office.

    Build quality – The UE Mini Boom is lighter than expected but has a solid plastic build. The Bose weights considerably more and has an aluminum outer casing. The UE’s are roughly 2/3 the size of the Bose and don’t have a docking station.

    The UE’s indicate they are somewhat water resistant. Not so for the Bose. Overall both have their strengths and neither one will let you down build quality wise.

    Pairing – Both sets paired without issue although the Android UE app kept insisting I needed to pair the speakers even though I had already done so. Ultimately I ended up using the NFC [on an enabled phone or tablet you simply touch the speaker to the device for a moment] pairing on the UE’s. Note that Bose doesn’t have NFC pairing. Slight nod to the UE’s if they work on the Android app

    Sound – I tend toward electronic music but tried classical, classic rock, audio books and guitar music. Hands down the Bose had much deeper base and an overall better sound with good lows and highs and a slightly forward midrange. Adding in the second UE speaker gave a wider sound field but really didn’t improve bass or treble. The UE’s have a descent treble and midrange presence and are by no means unpleasant. I much prefer the Bose. As a side note I quickly compared the UE’s to a cheaper Kinivo bluetooth speaker I had laying around. A single UE did sound a bit better than the Kinivo but not enough to justify the increased cost.

    Both UE’s were able to operate at a higher volume than the Bose.

    Overall – If you’re going to buy a single speaker, these are not bad for the price. You’re roughly half the cost of the Bose and the sound is by no means bad. The NFC pairing is a plus if you have a phone that can do so. The Kinivo [btx270 or btx450] was a very decent alternative for a no-frills speaker at about half the cost of a single UE.

    If you plan on buying two of these realize that you’re at the same rough price point as the Bose. If you plan on using these in the bathroom or an area that has moisture or an area that needs louder volume then the UE is probably your choice if you want to stay with smaller speakers. If you’re after overall sound quality then I’d suggest you lean toward the Bose.


    I didn’t test battery life on the UE nor range as it was not within the scope of how I use these speakers.
    Neither speaker support Apt-X as far as I know.
