Last week, we were at the Singapore launch of the UE BOOM at the Commune Cafe, Millenia Walk and we were extremely impressed with the wireless Bluetooth speaker.

The UE BOOM is the first-ever social music player that’s packed with a specific set of features that sets a new standard for listening to music. The first to offer a 360-degree sound for a battery-powered device, the UE BOOM also boasts a rechargeable battery that can last for 15 hours. Unless you can party hard for over 15 hours, we’re pretty sure the UE BOOM would cater to the lifestyle of most people. On top of that, the UE BOOM can pair up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices and connect up to two devices at the same time. This hence allows you to switch from one device to the next device with just a touch of the button.

You can hook the UE BOOM with a Carabiner or Keychain and attach it together with your bag and anywhere you prefer.

The UE BOOM is definitely ultra-portable and a pleasure to bring around. Whether you’re heading to the beach for some suntanning, a BBQ/chalet party for a gathering with your friends, or to your dance studio for practising your dance routines, the UE BOOM will definitely be the life of the party.

To prove the point that the UE BOOM is a really tough and hardy speaker, we had a hands-on demonstration and we tried “killing” the UE BOOM like pouring water over it and throwing/dropping it on the ground from a height of 1 metre.

The UE BOOM is made for connecting with others and if more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM App [available for iOS™ and Android™] to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode.

We were so engrossed in fiddling and pairing our mobile phones to the UE BOOM that we were oblivious to our surroundings.

How about toning that biceps with the UE BOOM? Well, probably not because it’s way too light; which probably is a plus point for ladies to own the UE BOOM.

Wouldn’t you agree with me that the UE BOOM really does look like a tumbler!

Well, so much for fooling around with the UE BOOM but if you’re curious to find out what the whole package contains, here you go!

In the package, you will find the charger [both two-pins and three-pins]…

and the USB cable!

The UE BOOM doesn’t looks too shabby even for the most contemporary and stylish modern home.

The Old vs The New? Truly, the UE BOOM has revolutionised the way music is shared! No wonder it is called the social music player!

UE BOOM is designed to bring music into the world and we really enjoyed fiddling with it. It is truly designed for people whom wants to share their passion for music and we highly recommend it for all your social gatherings. If you’re interested, the UE BOOM is available at all major electronic stores and it is selling for SGD$299.

All the best and if you have friends whom are gamers too, do spread and share the news with them too!

Logitech is no stranger to any gamer or computer user because it is one of the biggest brands that manufactures computer+gaming accessories like the mouse, keyboard, and speaker. However, with that being said, there are not many people who know that Logitech also manufactures products like the earphones and headphones. As a matter of fact, those whom have heard of Logitech’s Ultimate Ears [UE] Series are a select group of musicians and avid music listeners whom have tried Logitech’s UE earphones or headphones.
Recently, we were given the opportunity to review one of Logitech’s UE relatively new portable Bluetooth wireless speaker known as the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox and we were quite blown away by its performance.

Check out the video introduction of the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox

On the surface, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox looks compact and miniature. Because of its small size, bringing it around wherever we go was a breeze as we could easily fit it into our bags. In case you’re wondering how heavy is it, it weighs only 298 grams. However, don’t be fooled by its small stature because when the occasion calls for it, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can really pack a punch!

From Logitech 2013

Unlike any other portable Bluetooth wireless speakers which can only connect one single mobile device, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox allows users to connect up to two mobile devices at any one time and is able to play music from either one of the mobile devices. As the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can also double up as a speakerphone for voice and video calls, you need not worry about missing any phone calls when listening to your favourite hits.

From Logitech 2013

Now, we put the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox to the test and here are our findings:

Battery

After 1 full charge of the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox, we connected my Apple iPhone 5 to the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox via Bluetooth and played music from the SKY.FM App. After which, we measured how long the battery could last until it depleted and guess what, it lasted way longer than my fully-charged Apple iPhone 5. As our Apple iPhone 5 depleted with the test, we couldn’t continue testing it but the duration we measured was approximately 5 hours! If not for the depleted battery of the Apple iPhone 5, we believe that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox could go beyond 5 hours as it was tested by Logitech that it could last up to 10 hours!

Sound Quality

Besides having a long battery life, the quality of the sound produced was really superb. We played a few genres of songs ranging from classical and acoustic to rock and heavy metal, and we find that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox was very suitable for classical, acoustic, jazz, and baroque songs. For rock and heavy metal songs, the sound produced was “bassy” and “boomy” but when you play it at the maximum volume, the sound was not so clear and got rather distorted. Hence, playing mellow songs at the maximum volume isn’t an issue.

If you’re wondering how the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox sounds like, check out the following video demonstration:

Design

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is wrapped with a unique grip-action rubber casing and hence is designed to withstand a little bumps and shocks. However, as with all electronic products, dropping is a NO-NO because it will damage the mechanics on the inside. The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes in 5 different vibrant colours of lime green, sea blue, white, black, and red for you to express your own style and you can be sure that it’s bound to attract lots of attention.

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes with a charging adapter, a three-pins plug, a two-pins plug, a user-guide, a USB charging cable, and a limited hardware warranty guide.

From Logitech 2013

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is available at all major electronics stores for the price of $149.00 and it comes with a 2-years limited hardware warranty. If you’re scratching your heads and you’re wondering what sort of gifts to get for your friends, this might just be the thing!
