Ultimate Ears has introduced the UE BOOM, a social music speaker made to play your music loud. It’s designed to make the most of digital music’s convenience, while making it less of a solitary experience.
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. It’s the first stereo speaker to offer 360-degree sound in a battery-powered device, and features a 15-hour rechargeable battery.
The versatile go-anywhere shape is wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant so you can enjoy your music anywhere you go.
It’s made for connecting with others. So 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.
“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 expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in May 2013, and in select countries in Asia in June 2013, for a suggested retail price of $199.99. For more information visit Ultimateears.com.
