Last year, we took the best Bluetooth speakers we could find and put them head to head in one big ‘mega review‘. When all was said and done, the overall best in the field was the Ultimate Ears (UE) Mini Boombox which retailed for $99. Since that time, we’ve reviewed plenty of others including new standouts like the $149 JBL Charge and the $199 Bose Mini Soundlink which we found to be fantastic, higher-priced alternatives.
A few weeks ago, Ultimate Ears dropped their prices on the Mini Boombox at retailers like Amazon and Best Buy and a new Mini Boom app hit the App Store. We reached out to Ultimate Ears on the matter and (long story short) got ourselves the new UE Mini Boom demo units that launch this morning. How did they stack up against the competition and the previous versions?
