New to Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 is a Magic Button on top of the speaker for convenient music control. Each speaker has balanced audio and 360-degree sound that lets one hear music with high tone-accuracy.
Megaboom 3 also provides deeper bass and improved clarity over its predecessors. Whether at a music festival or a pool party, the iridescent speaker stands out to make music more portable, durable and immersive.
“With Boom 3 and Megaboom 3, we took the Ultimate Ears speaker and made it even better,” says Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “Beyond immersive 360-degree sound that is balanced to stay true to your music, we improved the durability of the speakers without compromising on style. We also introduced the Magic Button, getting you to your music faster with just one touch, taking the speaker up a notch.”
The new Magic Button allows one to play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speakers without using one’s phone. When paired with the redesigned Boom & Megaboom by Ultimate Ears iOS mobile app, one will also have one-touch access to Apple Music’s catalogue of more than 45 million songs and one’s full playlists. The Magic Button can also be used to access playlists on Deezer Premium on Android. Additional music services will be added.
Other upgrades to Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 include an IP67 rating, so the speakers are not only waterproof and drop proof, but also dustproof, making them ready for outdoor adventures. Improved Bluetooth range up to 45 meters enhances portability. The speakers float, so you don’t have to worry about losing them at the bottom of the pool. For added convenience, Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 are compatible with the Ultimate Ears Power Up charging dock (sold separately) for wireless charging, and one can charge the speakers upright, thanks to a repositioned USB port.
Boom 3 and Megaboom 3 will be available in four dual-toned colours: Night (Black), Sunset (Red), Lagoon (Blue), and Ultraviolet (Purple).
