The UE Boom is a marvellous thing: a tiny, wireless speaker system with immense performance – and it's super-tough, as a speaker that lives outside needs to be. In 2013 the Boom faced its toughest challenge: watch the video and see the boom enter the stratosphere above US music festival Boonaroo – surviving the -30º temperatures.
How does such a robust speaker produce such strong sound? The clues are in the specifications: a pair of active 1.5W drivers and another two 2" passive radiators produce an amazing amount of volume. And the UE BOOM’s 360º speaker design blasts bold, immersive sound in every direction. It also features a generous 50-feet wireless range alongside its stellar sound quality.
The acoustic skin with plasma does a job, protecting the Boom against splashes, stains… and space. It resists staining, so it won’t look battered the first time you take it camping. It also means it’s water resistant. A2DP Bluetooth means you can play from any modern phone, accompanying iOS and Android apps give you even more control, allowing you to change the equaliser setting, monitor how much of the impressive 15-hour battery life the Boom has left and use the Boom as a musical alarm clock. You can even put together a pair of Booms, dedicating one for right-channel audio and one for left. Clever, incredible sounding… The UE Boom makes music social.
