This thing is GREAT! I first tried it out in the store and was amazed of the sound quality and the bass that it produces. Although I have checked out the UE Boom, I would say the Bose Soundlink Mini is the winner as the UE Boom’s shape is weird for me as I feel like if I put it on a table that I would knock it over. I like the mini over the Boom because it has more bass.
I have also purchased a Bose Soundlink (the larger one) and I would have to say that the sound quality on this one is much better than on that one and thus far this hasn’t made the crackling or popping noises that the Soundlink has.
I highly recommend this speaker.
