Our choice for best portable speaker was without a doubt Logitechs UE BOOM, but it now has some Mega competition – from an older sibling at that. Logitech today announced the new UE MEGABOOM portable speaker. The MEGABOOM takes what was loved from its original counterpart and ups it by 200%. This larger offering delivers 360-degree of more power, more bass, and overall more sound!
The UE BOOM was designed to be picked up and go with you whenever you need but sometimes we look for a speaker to pick up and go while we’re indoors. The UE MEGABOOM provides a better listening experience at home while still being pretty portable for being under two pounds. The MEGABOOM features an IPX7 Waterproof rating, a 20-hour long battery life and 100-foot wireless Bluetooth range.
“People want their music wherever they go, and to be part of everything they do,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “That’s why we designed UE MEGABOOM to be strong enough to withstand your life and your adventures, and allow you to share the magic of music wherever you go.”
The UE MEGABOOM can also be paired with another for Stereo sound as well as update for pairing with the original UE BOOM. Logitech encourages users to download its UltimateEars app for a better experience – available for Android and iOS.
UE MEGABOOM is expected to be available in the U.S., and in select countries in Europe and Asia in January 2015, for a suggested retail price of $299.99. For more information, please visit www.ultimateears.com.
