UE BOOM from Ultimate Ears is the first stereo speaker to offer 360-degree sound in a battery-powered device. It features a 15-hour rechargeable battery and versatile go-anywhere shape wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant so you can enjoy your music anywhere you go. It is also made for connecting with others. If more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM app to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode.
“The digital age has changed how we listen to our favorite 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.”
You can pair up to 8 Bluetooth enabled devices to the UE BOOM and connect up to 2 source devices at the same time. You can also play (stream) to 2 UE BOOMs from one source. The speaker even works with NFC enabled source devices. It's maximum sound level is 88dBA with a frequency range of 90Hz to 20kHz.
The speaker measures 6.5cm (2.6”) in diameter, 18 cm (7.1”) in height, and weighs 538g (19oz).
