Ultimate Ears Hyperboom (2020) vs Dali Katch (2016)

Analysis:

The Ultimate Ears Hyperboom (2020) is widely considered to be a great Portable Bluetooth Speaker at its $360 budget. The Dali Katch (2016), however, while also a good product at this price point, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well.

The Ultimate Ears Hyperboom (2020) managed to impress reviewers from many of the internet's most highly trusted sources, including CNET, Tom's Guide, Wirecutter (NYTimes), SoundGuys, and PCmag. It performed really well in their Portable Bluetooth Speaker roundups - it was named "Best party speaker" by CNET, "The best Bluetooth outdoor speaker" by Tom's Guide, and "Also great" by Wirecutter (NYTimes). That's high praise coming from sources that conduct in-depth hands-on testing.

As for the Dali Katch (2016), it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing.
