I watched a lot of movies growing up and the one thing I always envied about characters in the movies was the fact that they had the perfect soundtrack for every moment in their life. So, even from a young age, I wanted my own soundtrack, my own mood music, really.
Now, even though I’ve left my childhood days far behind, I can’t really say that I’ve outgrown that desire. This, I think, is what makes the UE BOOM so special to me. In a way, it fulfills that desire.
You see, the UE BOOM is a speaker unit that combines a loud, crisp, and clear sound with a discrete, small form factor that takes up less space than an average bottle of water. This means I can tuck it away in one of my bag’s tiny pockets and forget about it while it plays music around me. Of course, I still wouldn’t use this device in a crowded public space because I don’t want to be that guy on the train, but for those times when I am by myself, or with good company, I can now have the perfect song playing in the background.
This isn’t just a solid, well-built, well-engineered wireless speaker, it’s become something that I’ve grown to adore over the course of this review. I love the way it looks, the way it delivers music, and the way it thrums when you hold it in your hand with the music playing. In fact, the only thing that would make me hesitate to get the UE BOOM is that expensive price tag, but even then, I don’t think I’d regret the purchase.
If the price is also your only concern, the UE BOOM is currently on sale in Malaysia. For more information, head on over to our post here.
