The big day is here: it’s now officially Black Friday. If you’ve been waiting to buy a bargain Bluetooth speaker, then this could be the deal for you.
Ultimate Ears produces some of our favourite Bluetooth speakers and the UE Boom 2 is a great pick. It’s a rugged, colourful little speaker that is only £79.99 today. That gives you an impressive £90 saving over the original £169.99 price.
The UE Boom 2 features 360-degree sound which is great for filling a room, NFC for quick-pairing to a phone and it’ll withstand accidentally getting dunked in water. This is a particularly rugged speaker and perfect for the beach or by the pool.
In our 4/5 review of the UE Boom 2 our only real qualm was the price, which isn’t an issue anymore. Our reviewer said: ‘Overall, the UE Boom 2 is a great Bluetooth speaker that fixes many of the issues that plagued its 2013 predecessor. It offers great audio quality, which beats most competing ruggedised speakers, and many advanced controls via its iOS and Android applications.‘

We also said: ‘Sound quality on the UE Boom 2 is impressive, at least by Bluetooth speaker standards. Bass levels are solid and pack a suitable punch, although at times they can drown out the mid-range. I noticed this was a particular issue when listening to bass-heavy tracks by The Doors.’
