2:15 /

UE's compact wireless Bluetooth speaker features slightly better sound and some added features for $99.

I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the EU we meaty boom box this is the successor. To the -- mobile boombox. Not much has changed in terms of design they essentially look identical this is a wireless Bluetooth speaker. The grills have changed slightly that design on the pattern on the grill but otherwise these are identical speakers but. You -- has updated some the innards. The internal parts of the speaker so you get slightly better sound -- basis slightly better. And there is also an app allows you to pair two of these together this is a 99 dollars because -- cost you close to 200 dollars. To pair a couple of these get a but you will get some stereo separation. Which you don't get from a small speaker like this that said even though you do get better -- separation. You're not gonna get better bass and -- -- just have so much -- that they can output. This does play pretty loud but it is still sound a little bit -- As far as extra features go there really isn't a whole lot but -- do you get speakerphone capabilities. -- -- -- is built -- to the top of the speaker are from that it does have sort of -- organized exterior so it's a fairly durable small speaker. -- also some buttons on top line control buttons as well as -- dedicated Bluetooth button preparing the speaker. I'm however there are no transport controls he can't pause playback or advance tracks and people like those features -- control most of -- features from your Smartphone or tablet. The Bluetooth range on this is about fifty feet that's a little -- extended from your typical 33 foot. Range and the battery life is around ten hours that will -- of course how loud you play you music. All in all this is a solid speaker in this price range. On there is a lot more competition now in this smaller speaker category so I can't say it's an exceptional value. That's a pretty safe bet if you want a small speaker for less than a hundred dollars or repeat do you want a better speaker. You should step up to do you mean boom which cost double this -- is a better speaker of raw and sells. Significantly better. I David Carnoy and that's the -- -- -- probably -- speakers and things like.
