Ultimate Ears today announced the second generation model of the UE ROLL, named the UE ROLL 2. The disc shaped, portable waterproof wireless speaker maintains the same size, look and original price, yet pumps out 15 percent more sound and increases wireless range to 100-feet.
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.”
UE ROLL 2 comes with a UE Floatie, so your speaker can float right through the fun and splash up next to you at your pool party.
Pricing and Availability
UE ROLL 2 is expected to be available in the U.S and in select countries in Europe in May 2016, for $99.99.
I reviewed the original UE ROLL and found it to be very, very good for its size. I’d expect UE ROLL 2 to be slightly better, although I haven’t heard it yet. However, the original UE ROLL is now being discounted (while supplies last) to $69.99 at Amazon.com, which makes it one of the best bargains of the summer.
