UE Wonderboom speaker review: My new favourite Bluetooth travel speaker

At the beginning of 2017 I would have recommended the UE Roll 2 as the go-to travel-friendly speaker. Considering how good it sounds, the Roll 2 is surprisingly small and can fit into just about any bag. Maybe even a jacket pocket! The decision of “best travel speaker” isn’t so clear-cut anymore. Ultimate Ears launched […]

Edifier M3200BT 2.1 speakers review: A stylish audio upgrade for your desk

Just like TVs, computer monitors don’t usually come with the best of speakers — often producing flat and tinny sound. Speaker systems like the Edifier M3200BT are a great way to add some style to your desk setup without breaking the bank at just under £50. And what’s more, it’s packing 34 watts of power […]

UE Roll 2: A waterproof, portable and powerful Bluetooth speaker

After reviewing the original UE Roll it earned itself the title of my favourite compact speaker. It’s the kind of versatile speaker I could use during my karaoke sessions in the shower, take away with me on holiday or use by the pool.

UE Roll Speaker Review: A Compact & Versatile Bluetooth Speaker

The Good: The UE Roll combines quirky design, solid build quality, and truly impressive sound quality for a speaker of this size.

KitSound Boom Evolution Speaker Review: Big Booming Box

The Good: Huge sound, decent looks, good connectivity The Bad: Poor trebles, plasticky build quality, expensive for its features The Bottom Line: For the audio perfectionist, the Boom Evolution may fail to impress. For bass lovers, it will probably be unrelentingly pleasing. Any speaker with “Boom” in its name tends to fall into one of two categories — […]
