Ultimate Ears Launches EVERBOOM, Updates Speaker Lineup

Ultimate Ears has introduced EVERBOOM, a new portable speaker designed to deliver both durability and high-quality sound. In addition to the ALL-NEW EVERBOOM, the company has released updated versions of its popular WONDERBOOM, BOOM and MEGABOOM speaker models, featuring recycled materials, improved acoustics, new colors and USB-C charging ports.

Jonah Staw, CEO of Ultimate Ears, said: “Our users have dynamic lives that require a soundtrack as adaptable and resilient as their diverse activities. EVERBOOM is our answer to their demand for a portable speaker that combines ruggedness with superior sound quality. It’s meant to be an essential part of their explorations.”

EVERBOOM is designed for people with an adventurous lifestyle. It delivers clear, robust 360-degree sound suitable for various environments, whether hiking in the mountains or by the water. The device features an oval design, similar to the EPICBOOM, with an optimized acoustic architecture that delivers louder sound in a compact size. It offers precisely tuned drivers for clear mids, highs and deep bass.

The speaker also has an IP67 rating, ensuring it’s waterproof, dustproof, and floatable, so it can withstand drops and exposure to water. Additional features include a carabiner clip for attaching to bags or gear, a 55-meter Bluetooth range, and up to 20 hours of battery life. An Outdoor Boost button enhances bass and optimizes sound for outdoor use, and one-touch NFC allows for quick Bluetooth pairing with NFC-enabled smartphones running Android 8.0 or later.

The new updates to existing speaker models bring various improvements. WONDERBOOM 4, BOOM 4 and MEGABOOM 4 are now made from 100% post-consumer recycled fabric. BOOM 4 and MEGABOOM 4 feature improved deep bass radiators for better sound quality and increased use of recycled materials compared to previous models. WONDERBOOM 4 introduces a podcast mode for an enhanced spoken word listening experience.

The UE | BOOM app has added a new feature called Megaphone. This allows users to turn their smartphone and speaker into a megaphone by pressing the Megaphone button and speaking into the phone. The voice is then projected through the speaker, which can be useful in a variety of scenarios, such as calling people onto a dance floor or making announcements in open spaces. The Megaphone feature is available on all speakers and is compatible with the UE | BOOM app.

The company has focused on sustainability in its latest products. The plastic parts of these speakers contain certified post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, at a rate of 58% for EVERBOOM, 31% for WONDERBOOM 4, 52% for BOOM 4 and 54% for MEGABOOM 4. The fabric used in all models is 100% PCR polyester and the paper packaging comes from FSC-certified forests and other controlled sources.

The Ultimate Ears EVERBOOM headphones are priced at $349.95 AUD, the WONDERBOOM 4 is $149.95 AUD, the BOOM 4 is $229.95 AUD and the MEGABOOM 4 is $349.95 AUD. Pre-orders for these products are now available in Australia.
