UE Roll 2: Top waterproof mini Bluetooth speaker gets some small but key upgrades
The UE Roll was one my favorite compact Bluetooth speakers of 2015 and now there's a sequel, the UE Roll 2, which offers a couple of modest improvements over the original.
For starters it plays louder.
About 15% louder according to UE More importantly, it has a longer wireless range of up to 30 meters or 98 feet.
And it ships with a [UNKNOWN] floaty so you can take it into the pool with you right out of the box.
That's right, this speaker is completely waterproof.
However it doesn't float, which is why you need the floaty accessory to keep it above water.
You can hang the speaker from a hook, or attach it to a backpack or even belt clip.
battery life is the at same around nine hours and the price is too, at $100 or 79 pounds.
For me away the extended wireless is the key upgrade, here it really does help you maintain a steady wireless connection.
Especially if you're floating this ting in a large pool.
Though can only deliver so much bass to sound, it's very good to speak of the size.
If you're willing to buy two, you can pair them together to augment the sound.
RO 1 has seen as much of an upgrade over the original, the Ro 2 is a better speaker and clearly one of the top many bluetooth speakers on the market.
