The latest Ultimate Ears speakers make blasting your music even easier

(Mega)boom! shake-shake-shake the room

The Ultimate Ears mission statement has always been a clear and simple one: give the people ultra-durable Bluetooth speakers that can go really flipping loud. We’re happy to report that none of that has changed with the company’s latest products, the Boom 3 (£130) and Megaboom 3 (£170). The redesigned two-tone fabric now no longer includes a strap, meaning better 360 sound, while a new IP67 rating means the speakers can accompany you on a dusty road trip as well as in the pool. Range has been upped too, now sitting at 45 metres. But the big addition is a new button that sits on top of each device. Modestly dubbed the Magic Button, it essentially allows you to play, pause and skip through your music without messing around with your phone. And if you’re an Apple Music or Deezer subscriber, a long press will summon your favourite playlists. Pick up both models from October 14.

I'm fascinated by all things tech, but if you were going to leave me on a desert island, I'd probably ask for my Nintendo Switch, a drone, and a pair of noise-cancelling cans to block out the relentless seagull racket. When I'm not on Stuff duty you'll probably find me subscribing to too many podcasts, playing too many video games, or telling anyone who will listen that Spurs are going to win a trophy this season.
