Hands up if your usual morning routine involves dancing around in your underwear to some feel good tunes?!
When I upgraded my phone, I soon realised that I needed a new system to play my music through as my old dock only fitted my old phone. My poor little laptop gets so hot if I play music through it whilst working so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new Ultimate Ears Roll* which is funnily enough; a portable speaker that connects to your phone via bluetooth.
It actually arrived in a box full of summer game activities such as frisbees, water guns and tennis rackets. I knew my travel holiday would be the perfect time to test out the speaker and of course... play lots of games! You can check out my vlog in Switzerland where we had lots of fun with the water games.
So, how does it work?
It's simple. You have to download the official app called 'UE ROLL' which is free to download from the app store. The app allows you to control the volume, change the EQ and even set an alarm through the speaker itself.
The actual speaker itself connects through Bluetooth on your phone... meaning no silly cable connections! The sound is amazing and sends the bass sounds all around the room; incredible for such a small device. I was really impressed when I very first used it and have since been using it every single day.
The UE roll takes around 8 hours to charge fully and then I find lasts about 5 hours before it needs another charge. This isn't that long but it lasts longer than if you was to play your music through your phone or laptop! A yellow charging cable is provided (thank the heavens for a yellow cable and not black!) which charges the UE roll via a USB connection. This could be through your laptop or through an Apple plug.
What's your favourite song at the moment? I'd love to know so I can save it on my phone and have a listen!
