UE ROLL 2 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker
We picked the UE Roll 2 as the best portable Bluetooth speaker because of its sound, size, and sleek design. It’s louder than most portable Bluetooth speakers we’ve tested and it does it in a body that is unique, beautiful, rugged and even waterproof. It also happens to be the most portable speaker we’ve used. Altogether, these features make this our pick for the best portable Bluetooth speaker you can buy.
- The speaker can be immersed in up to six feet of water for up to 30 minutes with no issues.
- Music fans can connect two different sources at one time at up to eight total.
- A built-in battery provides up to 9 hours of music before needing to be recharged.
Why the UE ROLL 2 is the best?
Sound quality is by far the most important feature of any Bluetooth speaker, whether it be portable or not, and the UE Roll 2 has amazing sound, especially for its size. It also happens to have good battery life, easy pairing and is durable and water resistant, which is great for pool time in the summer.
Our experience with the UE ROLL 2
One cool feature is that you can link multiple UE Roll’s together and play them in sync, making it a fun on-the-go stereo system if you so choose. Finally, it’s well-designed and has a fun look, something that seems harder and harder to find these days.
Featuring a Built-In Carabiner, This Speaker is Meant For On-The-Go
The speaker keeps the same basic hockey puck design as its predecessor but adds a number improvements. Thanks to the outdoor-friendly design, improved battery life, and integrated AUX cable, it’s a perfect choice for listening to music anywhere.
- Waterproof and can be submerged in up to 6 feet of water for 30 minutes.
- Offers an integrated AUX-in cable.

If you’re looking for a speaker with longer battery life and better sound, and are willing to sacrifice some portability, take a look at the UE Boom 2.
