Ultimate Ears Roll review
More are more people than ever now are storing music on Tablets, laptops, iPhones, and having a wireless speaker is getting popular so is streaming music.
And with so many options it`s hard to know which is the best to buy,
Do you want a single wireless speaker just for one room, or a portable that so you play music on the go? maybe a multi-room set up system.
There has been 2 five star reviews for the Boom and Megaboom portable speakers.
Now the Ultimate ears roll wireless speaker is very impressive
It couldn`t be more different with its disc design shape, that can sit on your hand.
On the front, you have a fabric like material with a lot of jazzy colors to choose from and enlarge volume controls sewed into it, with the back a robust rubberised finish with a bungee cord attached. which you could hang anywhere.
With buttons on the back for power and a pairing, there is micro USB charging port plus a 3.5mm input, but it`s the wireless what gives this speaker the edge with a Bluetooth range of 65ft more than 50ft Boom.
I find it incredibly sturdy for a little speaker shockproof and waterproof up to 1m for 30 minutes submerged.
There is plenty of drive in two 19mm tweeters and one 5cm woofer, it has a fat sound hard to believe it`s coming from it.
This little speaker is ideal for the outdoors it`s rugged and can be dropped from about 3 feet, the vocals and mids sound clear cut with treble nice and clean.
The bass is not going to be thunderous but it`s fine it does the job with no distortion.
This speaker for its size and what it can do is perfect for the outdoors with its portability, sound, and sturdiness it doesn’t cost the earth to buy.
This Scandinavian company is quite new, founded in 2009 in Copenhagen Denmark, with the sole desire to set free sound. They say their concept is Scandinavian Design, Wireless technical knowledge, high- fidelity all in one sound enclosure.
They have aimed to strive for idiosyncratic designs and quality similar to its equivalent hi-fi company B&O.

This Libratone Zipp is different from an older version which only supported Bluetooth This one will connect up to 6 speakers to give a full room system with Soundspace. with its interchangeable wool covers in seven colours and leather holding strap and cylindrical shape you could be thinking is the flask or the speaker lol.
With ribbon tweeters to give it a smooth sound in the upper regions and with a 4-inch bass woofer getting natural vocals and defined bass bringing all together nicely, also (DSP) digital signal processing and 60-watt amp for optimization and imaging in the room.
With built-in Wi-Fi turn this speaker into an extension of worldwide internet radio and store five of your favorite internet stations via their app and get unbelievable sound.
With the Libratone`s app it`s pretty straight forward when pairing up your equipment with the speaker and the set up to your network. Use 2 speakers if you want full stereo or more.
Now this Zip speaker can connect up your music in many different ways using Libratone`s app, stream from your NAS drive Via DLNA, which is good for windows and android devices.
Streaming Apple`s airplay direct wirelessly to the Zip. Play Direct also, stream without having to have another network. Great when there is not a Wi-Fi network in the vicinity.
And with all this the loop has a USB Audio interface so you can charge your device and with an aux input to connect up to analog devices.
It has a touch screen dial and hush feature, just put your hand on it for silence if the phone rings.
This speaker has a built in battery but only gives around 4 hours with wireless connection plus 8 hours on wired.
But saying that if you take it out and about for 4 hours via wireless isn`t that bad, you can always plug it into a device and charge it up.
The company as fine tuned this speaker for optimum performance, it isn`t the loudest portable speaker within the price range but with its 360-degree reflector it certainly broadens the sound waves around.
It has a nice full sounding charm about it on certain classical hits with all the push on more upbeat tracks.
This Speaker as got a lot going for it with its pizzazz and I am sure it will be very successful as the years go on to add to the Libratones reputation of really great speakers.
Great for outdoors or indoors.
Very smooth sounding
4 hours wireless battery time
