Summer is here and it's time to dance in the streets with a new Bluetooth speaker. But what if the Sonos Roam is too rich for your blood, given the current cost of living situation? Earfun understands.

Take a look at the new Earfun UBoom L. It won't officially launch on Amazon until July 11 (and will start shipping on July 12), but the company just dropped an early bird deal (opens in a new tab): sign up Sign up for the mailing list in advance and you will receive a 25% discount code, which will reduce the already reasonable price of €80 to just €60 (opens in a new tab) (around €67 or AU$116) .

And it's not about clicking "buy" and hoping for the best when it comes to sound, either. In fact, aside from the two 55mm dynamic drivers, 16 hours of playback time (for quick reference, you'll only get 12 hours out of the JBL Flip 6, which is still one of the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy right now). , stereo pairing, speakerphone functionality and three sound modes for indoor, outdoor or video tasks, there is good evidence that the thing is really good.

To explain: The sound was polished by Olaf Lubanski, a producer with over 10 years of experience in the music industry, and he released a 45-minute YouTube video detailing how Earfun outperforms others like JBL, Bose, Denon, Sounds and more.

But don't just take their word for it! Lubanski isn't afraid to show it to you, and yes, he thinks its performance is far superior to the Sonos Roam. In the video we share below, he pits the Earfun UBoom L head-to-head with the Bose Soundlink Flex, JBL Flip 6, and Anker Soundcore Motion +. Do you have 45 minutes free? Let Lubanski guide you through benchmark tests of it, in various environments.

Review: Earfun is now a proven name in audio and for that money its UBoom L speaker is a no-brainer

At this point, Earfun (a little-known brand until 2019) has proven its worth - check out our Earfun Air and Earfun Air Pro reviews for reference. Lubanski also makes a few points in the video above; Why pay €200 for something when €60 can get you a product that (it says) is actually better?

Did we mention that it's IPX7 rated, which means it can be submerged in water as deep as one meter for 30 minutes and survive? This places it among the best waterproof speakers on the market.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Earfun UBoom L is the ability to choose between three different sound modes, something we first saw in the splendid Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2, released in the summer of 2019. Indeed, where is Ultimate Ears? in this days? In its apparent absence, other audio manufacturers are no doubt picking up the slack…

Remember, though, that on the UE cup-sized speaker you only had an external boost mode (a little tree button at the bottom), whereas here you also have the option of a video boost mode.

Naturally, the bass heft of any portable Bluetooth speaker will be limited given its relatively jewel-like dimensions, but Lubanski doesn't mince words and even asks buyers for feedback. Refreshing.

Given what I've already seen and heard, for this money I'll be the first to buy one, but we'll bring you a full review whenever we can.
