Ultimate Ears Launches WONDERBOOM 2
Ultimate Ears has welcomed the next generation of its waterproof Bluetooth speaker, WONDERBOOM with greater bass, battery life, and true stereo pairing. The WONDERBOOM 2 is tough enough to handle an array of weather conditions, and the new Outdoor Boost mode adapts to any surrounding making for the most ideal listening experience.
“Our customers love the original WONDERBOOM, so we wanted to give them even more of what they enjoy in WONDERBOOM 2,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “We’ve taken on-the-go music listening even further with new audio features that fit your outdoor environment and the ability to experience true stereo sound when you pair two WONDERBOOM 2 speakers together. Now, you can take music anywhere and enjoy even bigger, crisper 360-degree sound in any conditions, all day long.”
On the exterior, the first and second generations look nearly identical –with the exception of the loop for hanging or carrying– but the internal specs of the WONDERBOOM 2 are what really set it apart from its predecessor. The next-gen features a lower cutoff frequency, 30 percent more battery life and a new IP67 rating meaning its waterproof, dustproof and buoyant. A new Double Up feature also allows for true wireless pairing of another WONDERBOOM 2 speaker to create an even more explosive sound.
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2 comes in a variety of colors: Deep Space Black (Black), Crushed Ice (Grey), Radical Red (Red), Bermuda Blue (Blue) and Just Peach (Pink). The inspiration behind the colors and two-tone fabrics derive from this season’s athleisure fashion. The WONDERBOOM 2 is available now in select countries in Europe, and for pre-order in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $99.99. It is also expected to be available in Asia, and Australia and New Zealand beginning this summer.
