UE Roll 2 wireless speakers offer portable sound under $100

Ultimate Ears, one of growing lines of portable wireless speakers, introduced the UE ROLL 2 to its lineup of wireless mobile speakers this week.

The company began with the UE BOOM back in 2013, now the UE ROLL 2 will offer customers the same easy-Bluetooth connectivity with an easy to use and colorful portable speaker.

According to the company’s announcements today, the UE ROLL 2 offers 15% more sound and an increased wireless range of 100-feet. The UE ROLL 2 improved its internals, but did manage to stay true to the same popular disc-shape design of the original UE ROLL. Weighing in at just over half a pound, UE ROLL 2 packs in more sound without adding extra size or bulk.

UE ROLL 2 is meant to go with you on your next adventure. Equipped with a bungee cord loop, this already small and light speaker is portable and versatile. You can attach it to your backpack, belt loop or bike, so you can take it anywhere and never be without music. It’s waterproof (IPX7 certified), drop-proof and built to withstand a beat up, all while delivering epic sound in the palm of your hand.

“Thanks to its bungee cord loop, UE ROLL was our most portable, convenient, on-the-go speaker in the family,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “No other speaker comes with everything you need to hang it in the shower, float it in the pool or attach it to your bike. UE ROLL 2 delivers all that and more, with improved sound and wireless range, so you can do more of what you love with even more freedom and flexibility.”

The speaker is waterproof, so it’s beach and pool friendly during your summer adventures. In fact, the UE ROLL 2 comes with a UE Floatie, so your speaker can float in the same pool as you.

Pricing and Availability

According to the company’s website, the UE ROLL 2 is expected to be available in the U.S and in select countries in Europe in May 2016, for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
