We preferred Final Ears’ unique Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker, which sounded good for its compact dimension and was additionally waterproof. Now the corporate has launched the Wonderboom 2, which is a contact larger than the unique and sounds barely higher, with extra bass and a particular Out of doors Increase mode that reinforces treble. It is obtainable now in some European international locations and for preorder within the US.

Like its predecessor, the Wonderboom 2 carries a listing worth of $100, is absolutely waterproof and is available in a number of shade choices.  What’s completely different is the IP67 ranking which means it is dustproof, extra shock-resistant and likewise capable of float. It additionally has 30% higher battery life — as much as 13 hours at reasonable quantity ranges, in accordance with Final Ears — and you’ll hyperlink two collectively to create a stereo pairing by merely urgent a button on every speaker.

I acquired an early hearken to the speaker a couple of weeks in the past and certainly it appears to sound a little bit higher than the unique, with the sound being a little bit fuller. That mentioned, there’s solely a lot sound a small speaker like this will produce, so it does have its limitations. However like most of UE’s audio system, these are tuned extra for outside use and the outside Increase mode does give the speaker a sound increase exterior (I heard it on a rooftop in Manhattan). You’d suppose you’d desire a bass increase, however the treble increase really helps ship barely richer, higher outlined sound in open areas.

All that mentioned, this might additionally make an honest bathe speaker, because of it being absolutely waterproof. 

I will have a full overview of the Wonderboom 2 within the coming weeks.  As I mentioned, it lists for $100, however I anticipate it would come down in worth in due time. You possibly can decide up the unique Wonderboom for round $60 on Amazon and even much less for a “renewed” mannequin.
