Ultimate Ears, a leader in consumer audio, is releasing the second generation UE BOOM bluetooth speaker. Building upon the success for the UE Boom, the UE BOOM 2 will feature a similar 360-degree design, completely-waterproof design, as well as 100-feet of wireless range. The range is absolutely incredible at 100-feet, as similar priced bluetooth speakers such as the Bose Soundlink II and the newest generation Beats Pill only offer 30-feet of wireless distance. The UE BOOM 2 was clearly designed to be used anywhere.
With a 15-hour battery life, rugged design, and IPX 7 rating(to withstand drops up to five feet), the UE BOOM 2 is designed to go anywhere no matter what you’re doing. Take it to the beach, on a mountain bike ride, or listen to it in the peace of your own home – the UE BOOM 2 was designed for everywhere. In addition, the speaker can be paired with any other Ultimate Ears bluetooth speaker through the UE BOOm 2 app giving you double the sound.
The UE BOOM 2 is due out this month in the US and select countries in Europe and Asia for $199.00.
UE Introduces New Anywhere-You-Go-Proof Mobile Speaker
NEWARK, Calif. — Sept. 15, 2015 — Today Ultimate Ears once again dares you to take the party anywhere by adding UE BOOM 2 to its colorful lineup of beach-, snow- and anywhere-you-go-proof wireless mobile speakers. Starting first with UE BOOM and now turning things up again with UE BOOM 2, Ultimate Ears is continuing to transform the way people experience music, together, out in the world by completely redefining the Bluetooth® speaker category.
Designed to get wet, muddy and beat up, UE BOOM 2 blasts insanely great sound in every direction. Using the same high-quality materials you have come to expect from Ultimate Ears, UE BOOM 2 is waterproof (IPX 7), drop-proof (from up to five feet high), disruptive and bold, plus a whole lot of fun. It’s the size of a water bottle, so stick it in your bike’s water bottle holder or clip it to your bag, turn up life and add dimension to any moment.
Building from the award-winning UE BOOM 360-degree speaker that Ultimate Ears introduced in 2013, UE BOOM 2 is 25 percent louder with a longer wireless range of 100-feet and a completely waterproof design, so your music can be shared no matter where you are or what you’re doing. It has a 15-hour all-day, all-night battery life, plus, new and innovative tap controls that allows you to skip songs, without needing to have your phone in-hand.
“Music is about making good moments great moments,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “And by taking your music with you, those great moments are now shareable, anywhere. That’s why every speaker Ultimate Ears designs is durable and adventure-proof with 360-degree sound, including UE BOOM 2. We’ve been leading the category in a new direction, and we’re breaking the mold yet again with UE BOOM 2.”
Plus, UE BOOM 2 gets better with time. Using the UE BOOM 2 app for iOS® and Android™, you can double the sound by pairing UE BOOM 2 with any other Ultimate Ears speaker, remotely turn the speaker on from your phone and even wake up to your favorite music. New updates are sent to UE speakers wirelessly through the app, so you can easily continue to expand features, making each speaker future-proof and even more awesome over time.
