Good music is the ultimate summer companion. A quality wireless speaker — one that has a good battery life, better-than-okay sound, and is tough enough to endure sand, splashes, and the a few drops and dings, is a must-have seasonal accessory. At the beach? Pump those jams. Grilling? Pump those jams. At a campsite and feel like having an impromptu dance party with your kids? Pump. Those. Jams. One of the best Bluetooth speakers we’ve ever laid eyes (and ears) on, is the Logitech UE Boom 2. And today, Amazon has it marked down more than $100. So, if you don’t have a speaker to supply your summer soundtrack, now’s the time to strike.
The UE Boom 2 is a rubberized, tube-shaped speaker about the size of a drinking glass. Damn near indestructible, it’s waterproof, shockproof, and more than durable enough to survive some rough treatment from a curious toddler. It connects quickly to phones, lasts 15 hours on a single charge, and, thanks to its log-like design, pushes out 360 degrees of sound — meaning everyone sitting around it will hear the sweet, sweet jams. And, oh, are the jams sweet: highs are crisp, lows are throbby, and it does justice to pretty much every type of song, from Bodak Yellow to Baby Beluga. It’s also available in a variety of colors, from standard to psychedelic.
In short, the UE Boom 2 is great. You should buy it if you need a speaker. Oh, and if you want to buy more than one speaker because the price is so right, you can tether together up to 50 Boom 2s together for a major summer jam session. Normally $180, you can pickup the Boom 2 today for $75.
