WHICH SHOULD I BUY, THE BOOM 2 OR WONDERBOOM?
The Ultimate Ears Boom 2 was brought out back in September 2015, as an upgrade to the UE Boom. With it brought waterproofing and sound improvement among other benefits. The UE WonderBoom came out a year and a half later (April 2017), a smaller squatter speaker at a lower price point. The WonderBoom has new and updated features. Its lower price and smaller size means that it has had to make some sacrifices. This comparison quiz is aimed to help you make the best decision you can on which one to buy.
UE BOOM 2 AND WONDERBOOM FOR TRAVELING
These speakers are ideal to travel with, and each have their own benefits. The WonderBoom is half the hight of the Boom 2 however it is quite a bit wider diameter. Which is probably not an issue for most of you, it’s worth considering if you plan on carrying it in the water bottle section of your backpack. Packed inside a bag the WonderBoom has a smaller overall size. The WonderBoom does have a nifty hang loop so it easily clip to your rucksack and save on space.
The Boom 2 is understandably heavier as it is bigger and has a larger battery capacity. That battery size allows for a 15 hour life for the Boom 2 compared to 10 for the WonderBoom.
CONNECTIVITY FOR THE WONDERBOOM COMPARED TO THE BOOM 2
Both portable speakers connect through bluetooth as their primary function. The WonderBoom only connects with bluetooth, whereas the Boom 2 has an aux connector. This is a big consideration if you are planning on connecting to devices that do not have bluetooth. While the bluetooth on both are supposedly the same range of 30m (100Ft), the indoor range on the WonderBoom is significantly better.
The Boom 2 has a UE Boom App for < href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.logitech.ueboom" target="_blank" >android and < href="https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/ue-boom/id632344648" target="_blank" >iOS, but it does not yet work for the WonderBoom. This is not an issue if you do not need to mess around with the EQ.
