Phones have smart features to make life fun and entertaining and so should your Bluetooth speakers. The UE BOOM 2 is a smart Bluetooth speaker, which means no cables, better sound projection, and even waterproof options, guaranteed to make any backyard party more fun.

Double Up

Wirelessly connect two UE BOOM 2s together and set them up to play as a stereo pair, or double the sound and play the same music from both speakers. This essentially lets you create a mobile surround sound system controlled by a smartphone. You can also “Double Up” a UE BOOM 2 to a UE BOOM, ROLL or MEGABOOM.


In the past, if friends wanted to take turns playing music off a speaker they had to either pass the phone around or pair/unpair phones one at a time; disrupting the flow of music.  But the UE BOOM 2 app has a Block Party feature that lets up to three friends connect to a single speaker. Take turns playing music and let the party decide who has the better playlist.

Chill by the pool

Warmer weather means hanging out by the pool or being surrounded by ice cold drinks. Normally that also means deciding to be near the tunes or playing music way too loud for your neighbors’ liking so you can hear it while chilling in the pool. With the UE BOOM 2, you can bring it by the pool or have it on a table full of drinks. Its IPX7-rated waterproof so it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes and a depth of up to 1 meter.

Stream with Confidence

The speakers are paired and the playlist is created, but will your smartphone stream it smoothly? As the DJ, any buffering mid-song can be a party foul. A reliable 4G LTE network means you can stream the playlist and take requests without saying “hold on its loading.”

The UE BOOM 2 is currently $149.99 (normally $199.99) for the month of April as part of Verizon’s accessory of the month promotion and is available in blue, white, purple, black, teal, and red color models. To order, visit our accessories page.
