The Rugged Ultimate Ears EVERBOOM: Superior Sound That Is Waterproof, Dustproof and Floatable

Ultimate Ears, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), today announced EVERBOOM, a durable, portable speaker built to deliver powerful 360° sound. Additionally, the brand announced updates to its award-winning speaker lineup with fourth-generation acoustics, colours and sustainable materials: introducing WONDERBOOM 4, BOOM 4 and MEGABOOM 4.

“Our users have dynamic lives that require a soundtrack as adaptable and resilient as their various activities,” said Jonah Staw, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “EVERBOOM is our answer to their call for a portable speaker that marries robustness with superior sound quality. It’s meant to be a core part of their explorations.”

Built for adventure
With EVERBOOM, users can play audio delivered in crystal-clear, resonant sound for moments such as hikes up a mountain or peaceful interludes by the water. Featuring an oval design similar to that of the award-winning EPICBOOM, EVERBOOM’s highly-optimised acoustic architecture produces louder sound in an even more portable size, so big sound can accompany every adventure. The precision-tuned drivers ensure punchy and clear mids and highs, delivering deep bass and distinct vocals.

With an IP67 rating, the speaker is waterproof, dustproof, and floatable to handle drops and dips in the water, plus its carabiner can be attached to bags, gear and backpacks. No matter the adventure, EVERBOOM keeps the music going with a 55-metre Bluetooth® range and up to 20 hours of playtime. Plus, the Outdoor Boost button pumps up the sound to deliver big bass and optimises sound outdoors. The speaker also has a one-touch NFC feature that establishes a Bluetooth® shortcut for users with NFC-compatible smartphones with Android 8.0 or later. Simply power on, pair, connect and play to the speaker, or switch between multiple people’s playlists within seconds.

Fan-favourite speakers get a fresh update
In addition to EVERBOOM, Ultimate Ears updates its WONDERBOOM, BOOM and MEGABOOM speakers, delivering new colourways made of 100% post-consumer recycled fabric and USB-C charging ports. BOOM 4 and MEGABOOM 4 speakers feature enhanced deep bass radiators to unlock an even bigger sound and are made with even more recycled materials than their predecessors. WONDERBOOM 4 includes a podcast mode for enhanced listening to favourite hosts and stories.

UE | BOOM app – meet Megaphone
Megaphone, a new update to the UE | BOOM app, turns a smartphone and speaker into a megaphone. When a user taps the Megaphone button and speaks into their phone, their voice projects through the speaker – perfect to call people to the dance floor, belt out a few bars, or hear their voice echo across the mountains. Megaphone is available on all speakers that are compatible with the UE | BOOM app.

Sustainability
The plastic parts in the speakers include certified post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic to give a second life to end-of-use plastic from old consumer electronics: minimum 58% for EVERBOOM, 31% for WONDERBOOM 4, 52% for BOOM 4 and 54% for MEGABOOM 4. All of these speakers are made of 100% PCR polyester fabric. And, their paper packaging comes from FSC™-certified forests and other controlled sources.

Pricing and availability
Ultimate Ears EVERBOOM (RRP $349.95), WONDERBOOM 4 (RRP $149.95), BOOM 4 (RRP $229.95), and MEGABOOM 4 (RRP $349.95) speakers are available for pre-order in Australia starting June 26, 2024.
