Ultimate Ears unveils world’s first social music player: UE BOOM
Ultimate Ears today introduced UE BOOM, a social music player made to help you rage, riot, party and play the music you love, out loud. It’s designed to make the most of digital music’s convenience, while making it less of a solitary experience. UE BOOM is the first-ever social music player, a wireless speaker that’s packed with a specific set of features that sets a new standard for listening to music. It’s the first stereo speaker to offer 360-degree sound in a battery-powered device, and features a 15-hour rechargeable battery.
Its versatile go-anywhere shape is wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant so you can enjoy your music anywhere you go. And it is made for connecting with others. If more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM app (available for iOS and Android) to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode. UE BOOM is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in May 2013 and in select countries in Asia in June 2013, for a suggested retail price of $199.99.
