The Roll can easily lean up against a wall, but why would you do that when it can easily wrap its cord around a post, door knob or even a shower rod?
It's gloriously simple, and gives you the freedom to position the sound as you choose.
The low-profile build and useful bungee cord of the UE Roll make it a useful at-home or on-the-go audio companion, but those features alone can't make it a must-have.
It has to pump out audio that you'd expect for your money, and it does.
For $99 (£99, AU$149), this slim, disc-shaped speaker pushes out a surprisingly powerful sound.
That said, the UE Roll's audio performance isn't stellar.
To make no-look adjustments easier, UE made them feel different to the touch, one being convex, the other being concave.
On the back, you'll also find a flap that, once you pry it up, is host to a 3.5mm input for wired listening and a micro USB port for charging the Roll.The Roll comes packaged with a neon micro USB cable for charging and what UE calls a "floatie." It's an inflatable floatation device to let this speaker float about on water, should you be have a pool party in need of some tunes.Similar to the UE Boom and the now-discontinued UE Mini Boom, the UE Roll experience is enhanced with the companion app for Android and i OS.Sways can then be shared on social networks and embedded on sites.Microsoft is simply previewing Sway today, and the app is "incomplete by design" according to Atalla.Microsoft is planning to gather lots of feedback about what Sway designs work best and how people start to use this tool before it continues to tweak and improve it.
