OUR RUN­NER-UP

Los Angeles Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Our top pick is a larger ver­sion of the UE Boom, which was our pre­vi­ous fa­vorite. They share a sim­i­lar sound: The UE Boom is fuller, clearer and more ro­bust than most Blue­tooth speak­ers can muster. The Boom doesn’t play as loudly as the Me­gaboom, though, and it’s not as wa­ter­proof. It will sur­vive a splash, but not a full dunk in wa­ter. If you want some­thing more af­ford­able and/or more por­ta­ble, the Boom ($180 on Ama­zon) is a great choice. The UE Boom has a big sound for its size, plus the same app-based fea­tures as the UE Me­gaboom, our top pick. It can be used ver­ti­cally or hor­i­zon­tally and is avail­able in 16 color com­bi­na­tions.
