UE Roll 2 Waterproof Wireless Speaker Review
The UE Roll 2 wireless speaker came out just in time for summer (in New York City that is). I reviewed the original UE Roll last year and loved it. Here’s what I thought about the sequel.
Design and Build
IPX7 rated: UE ROLL can be immersed in liquid up to 1m for up to 30 minutes.
The Roll 2 is the same size as the original. But somehow they managed to make sound louder and a bit better. The Roll 2 isn’t the best sounding speaker, but given its size and features, the sound quality is pretty dope. You get a good amount of bass and can pump it to high volume levels without the music distorting. It’s pretty much all you want in a waterproof speaker.
You can use the UE Roll app to control the volume and equalizer on the speaker. You can also use it to pair 2 UE Roll speakers together. I couldn’t power the speaker on through the app for some reason. But once I turned on the speaker manually, it would pair and I was able to see the current battery life
One thing about UE speakers that never fails is the battery life. On the regular I never use the speaker longer than a few hours continuously. But for sake of testing I left it on and paired and it does last for hours on end. Of course battery life will vary with the amount of time used and volume level.
Pricing and Availability
The UE Roll 2 wireless speaker is a win for many situations. It’s waterproof, has great sound and has a decent price of $100. It’s the speaker I recommend you bring to small BBQs, and pool parties. It’s easily portable and gets the job done.
