In the land of wireless Bluetooth speakers, Ultimate Ears (UE) is king. To keep the party going strong, the audio brand will soon drop BOOM 3 and MEGABOOM 3, both of which come jam-packed with new features. Not only are the speakers more durable and waterproof than ever before, but they now host a “Magic Button”, allowing one-touch access to your favourite songs. Throw in an extended Bluetooth range of up to 150 feet (among other things), and it’s no wonder that this iconic range continues to reign supreme all over the world.
On the design front, UE took an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to BOOM 3 and MEGABOOM 3. As a result, each speaker features a similar aesthetic to its respective predecessor. That’s definitely a good thing, as Ultimate Ears speakers have remained streamlined, durable, and effortlessly portable since day one.
Meanwhile, BOOM 3 and MEGABOOM 3 take functionality and performance up a substantial notch. Thanks to a new IP67 rating, the new speakers are waterproof, drop proof, and dustproof. Other notable improvements include deeper bass, better clarity, a redesigned app interface, extended range, and the Magic Button. As if all that wasn’t enough, BOOM 3 will host a 15-hour battery life while MEGABOOM 3 will jam out for up to 20 hours on a single charge. Last but not least, you can sync each BOOM 3 or MEGABOOM 3 with up to 150 other UE speakers of any generation.
Set to arrive in Australia in late September, BOOM 3 and MEGABOOM 3 will be available in four dual-toned colours: Night (Black), Sunset (Red), Lagoon (Blue), and Ultraviolet (Purple). Available for separate purchase will be a POWER UP charging dock, which enables wireless charging. Suffice to say, UE pretty much thought of everything. All that’s left for you to do is party.
