Ultimate Ears launches new editions of the WONDERBOOM and HYPERBOOM speakers
Ultimate Ears, a Logitech brand, announced today an expansion to its popular lineup of portable BluetoothⓇ speakers. The expansion features the highly-anticipated introduction of WONDERBOOM 3 and a new colour for its beloved HYPERBOOM.
Made with 100% recycled polyester fabric and a minimum of certified 31% post-consumer recycled plastic that gives new life to recycled end-of-life electronics, Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 3 continues to prove that the best things come in small packages. An ultraportable speaker with surprisingly big 360° sound, WONDERBOOM 3’s crisp, bassy audio quality lasts up to 14 hours with full-stereo boom, and its IP67 rating means it’s waterproof, dustproof, and floats. Take it to the pool, the beach, or on a hike. It’s also perfect for listening to music at home and even in the shower.
WONDERBOOM 3 will come in four colours at launch, including Joyous Bright (Grey), Hyper Pink, Performance Blue, and Active Black. The speaker features 40 metres of Bluetooth range, so you’re free to roam. Plus it’s dirt resistant, drop proof, and features a handy loop so you can take it with you. You can also pair up two wireless WONDERBOOM 3 speakers for even bigger sound. Press once to double up. Press again for true stereo from both speakers, with left and right channels.
Ultimate Ears HYPERBOOM, the brand’s loudest and bassiest speaker, also received a fresh upgrade – an all-new white version. HYPERBOOM offers a wide dynamic range that brings your music to life, rendering every note in rich detail, and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 24 hours. It also supports four input sources — two Bluetooth, one 3.5mm auxiliary and one optical audio — so you and your friends can play music from your phones, laptop or gaming console, and easily switch between them with just the press of a button. Need to move the fun from the living room to the backyard? Indoors or outdoors, the adaptive EQ on HYPERBOOM reads the environment and automatically adjusts the sound to fill any space.
HYPERBOOM is also “party-proof”. With an IPX4 rating, it can withstand drink spills or pool splashes. And if your phone is running out of power, plug it into the USB charge-out port on HYPERBOOM and keep the music going. Using One-Touch Music Control, you can also play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speaker.
HYPERBOOM is supported on the Ultimate Ears BOOM app, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. On the app, you can set up favourite playlists, remotely turn the speaker on or off, adjust volume and more. You can also check that you have the latest speaker software and connect HYPERBOOM with any other BOOM, MEGABOOM or HYPERBOOM speakers using the app’s PartyUp feature.
“There’s no question people love our speakers, which is why we’re so thrilled to be adding to our fleet with the new WONDERBOOM 3 and our fan-favourite HYPERBOOM in white,” said Jonah Staw, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “With these additions, we’re delivering brilliant, crisp sound, sleek colours and the cutting-edge innovation our customers seek with the added benefit of increased use of recycled materials in WONDERBOOM 3.”
