This is the new generation of Ultimate Ears speakers, the Boom 3 and Megaboom 3. These portable, water-resistant Bluetooth speakers have been redesigned. The high-performance material, with which the new speakers are equipped, is also used in motorcycle jackets and as fire-resistant material. And both speakers have a magic button on top of the speaker, with which you can easily control the music.
Each speaker still has a balanced, 360-degree audio that lets you hear music exactly as the artist intended. The Megaboom 3 has an even deeper bass and improved clarity, compared with the original Mega tree . Whether you are at a festival in the desert or at a pool party, you stand out with a colorful, portable and durable speaker.
New is the magic button. This allows you to play music, pause and skip songs through the speakers without having to search your phone first. When you’re paired with the new Boom and Mega Tree from Ultimate Ears, you’ll have access to more than 45 million songs and your favorite playlists from the Apple Music catalog with the click of the new iOS app. Music lovers can also use the magic button to listen to their playlists via Deezer Premium on Android. At a later stage, more music services (Spotify?) Will be added.
Other improvements in Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 are a new IP67 rating. This means that the speakers are not only water and impact resistant, but also dust-resistant, so that they can join every adventure. And … they stay afloat! So you do not have to worry about ending up on the bottom of a river or lake. Also, the improved Bluetooth reception ensures that you can be up to 45 meters away and that the music continues to play.
To make it extra easy for you, you can also charge the Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 with the Ultimate Ears Power Up charging dock. With this you can easily charge them wirelessly. The Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 are available in four colors, each in two shades: Night (black), Sunset (red), Lagoon (blue) and Ultraviolet (purple).
The Ultimate Ears Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 are expected to be available from somewhere in September 2018 in the US and a number of selected countries in Asia and Europe, including the Netherlands.
The recommended retail price for the Boom 3 in the Netherlands is 149 euros; the Megaboom 3 is 199, – euro. The prices vary per country.
