Ultimate Ears BOOM
Ultimate Ears has launched the UE BOOM, a wireless speaker featuring 360-degree sound and designed to share music, socially. A versatile go-anywhere device that embraces the digital and social era.
According to Ultimate Ears, the UE BOOM is the first-ever social music player, a wireless speaker that’s packed with a specific set of features that sets a new standard for listening to music.
UE BOOM is a battery-powered device, and features a 15-hour rechargeable battery. Measuring only 6.5 x 18cms, and weighing a mere 538 grams, UE BOOM is wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant so you can enjoy your music anywhere you go.
Ultimate Ears told StereoNET "If more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM app (available for iOS™ and Android™) to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode." - nifty!
“The digital age has changed how we listen to our favourite songs and interact with music.” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “While online music services have made it easier to access your music, it's remained a challenge to have an anytime, anywhere listening experience that can be shared with others. UE BOOM solves that problem. Ultimate Ears strives to amplify the social experience of listening to music, bringing people together around the music they love. UE BOOM is designed to bring music out into the world, and that’s why we’re also supporting this introduction with a campaign to inspire young music fans to make music social.”
UE BOOM is available now at a suggested RRP of $199.95, from Dick Smith, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Myer, The Good Guys and Apple stores.
