Music fans alert! There is a new, trendy and colourful portable bluetooth music speaker available in the market, that would attract our younger millennial generation as well as working adults!

Introducing the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle collection! The Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle collection looks really nice and I think they would make great travel accessories, beside bringing it out for gatherings and parties with family, relatives and friends!

I would love to try it out when I go overseas for a holiday and share photos of my Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle travel adventures!

Let me share more key information and details of the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle speakers from the press release information:

The latest lineup to join the Ultimate Ears family of portable, seriously waterproof, go-anywhere speakers. Announced today, this collection of pint-sized, portable Bluetooth? speakers, with surprisingly big sound, are decked out in five designs to match every vibe: Concrete, Avocado, Patches, Raspberry and Unicorn.

WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection is an ultimate mashup of music necessity and fashion accessory. Inspired by global music and fashion trends, the fashion-forward colors of the collection include:

  • Concrete: Your look is everyday neutral but never basic. Concrete is inspired by urban texture, paint splashes and shadows.
  • Avocado: Your style is subtle and understated. With Avocado, you’re always ready to “guac” and roll.
  • Patches: You wear your heart on your sleeve and plaster your personality through patches and pins. Patches is a punch of personality to denim.
  • Raspberry: You’re never afraid to go bold. Raspberry is fresh, hot and juicy.
  • Unicorn: Magic is your middle name. Unicorn is a delightful color melt of pastels.

“The new collection is all about expressing yourself,” said Moninder Jain, head of Video Collaboration for Logitech Asia Pacific and managing director for ASEAN. “You curate your playlist and personal style – why not have a speaker that reflects that style too? WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection gives you big sound and the freedom to express your style in a trendy, tough and tiny speaker.”

WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection complements the existing line of award-winning WONDERBOOM speakers, boasting the same crisp 360-degree sound with balanced bass. Waterproof and worry-proof, WONDERBOOM is IPX7 rated (so it can be immersed in water up to one meter for up to 30 minutes), drop-proof from up to five feet, floats on its own and sports a hanging loop so it can be easily attached to any bag. With up to 10-hour battery life and 100-foot wireless Bluetooth range, WONDERBOOM is the perfect companion for the shower, beach, music festival or pool party. The Ultimate Ears button on the top of the speaker lets you play, pause, skip and double up two WONDERBOOM speakers for double the fun.

WONDERBOOM received a 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award, presented to the most innovative industrial, product and graphic designs by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

Key Features
  • Surprisingly Big Sound: WONDERBOOM packs bright and bold sound with balanced bass into a pint-sized speaker. Enjoy your music in true 360° sound like never before.
  • Seriously Waterproof: IPX7 rated (it can be immersed in water up to one meter for up to 30 minutes) and able to float on its own, WONDERBOOM is the perfect companion for showers, pools, beaches, muddy fields and rainy days. If WONDERBOOM gets dirty, just rinse it off.
  • 10 Hours of Happiness: WONDERBOOM has up to 10 hours of battery life.
  • Double the Speakers, Double the Fun: If you think one WONDERBOOM sounds great, you’ll love how they sound together. Turn things up by connecting two WONDERBOOM speakers together with the press of a button.
  • Easy Play, Pause and Skip: Control your music right from the speaker. Pressing the Ultimate Ears button on the top of the speaker lets you easily play, pause and skip songs.
  • Virtually Indestructible: This little beauty is also a beast. WONDERBOOM is drop-proof from up to five feet.

UE Roll Review

The Ultimate Ears UE ROLL was recently introduced in an earlier post on my site here. During a recently Logitech Singapore event, I had a short hands on with it on the capabilities of the UE ROLL and decided to take it for a short testing and do a review of the UE ROLL.

IMG_0937

During the event, I had a first hand look at how the UE ROLL reacted when it was placed inside a water tank filled with water. While I can’t hear the music when it was submerged, we can see the vibrations coming out from the UE ROLL because the music was still playing! Yes, it’s amazing and the UE ROLL is a portable and versatile portable speaker for your outdoor activities, you can bring it swimming or to the great outdoors!

When I tested the UE ROLL at home, it provided me with a nice set of music speakers for my home usage. Here are my thoughts and views of the UE ROLL

Pros

  • Bright, colourful and vibrant
  • Lightweight and easy to carry around in your bag
  • An elastic cord for you to hook up the UE ROLL to your bag or yourself and carry the UE ROLL around
  • Pretty nice bass sound
  • Sturdy and well built
  • Pair it with another UE ROLL and it becomes a good two speakers system
  • Ideal for use in your home and outdoors, parties and events.
  • Dedicated smartphone app to connect/pair up/control a (single/duo) UE ROLL

Cons

  • The shape and design of UE ROLL is interesting yet odd, some may like this unique shape and design, some may not like it.

If you are looking for a trendy and colourful portable wireless music speaker that is not too heavy, I would like to recommend the UE ROLL to you and take a look!

* I would like to thank Logitech Singapore and SPRG for the opportunity to review the UE ROLL *

UE MEGABOOM Review

The UE MEGABOOM that I wrote and shared recently here not too long ago, I had the opportunity to test it out and review this portable speaker for two weeks. When I received the UE MEGABOOM box package, it was nicely designed, well thought out and looks cool! I put the UE MEGABOOM to the test, playing youtube videos and short movie clips from my MacBook Pro.

Here are my thoughts and views from my short stint with the UE MEGABOOM

Pros

  • The UE MEGABOOM as the name suggests, really gives it a Mega Boom with its bass and sound for its size and form!
  • Surround sound effect
  • Pair it with another UE MEGABOOM and this will give you a nice 2 way speaker surround sound system for you to play music or watch a movie
  • Ideal for use at your home parties or outdoor picnics/parties/events
  • Dedicated smartphone app to connect/pair up/control a (single/duo) UE MEGABOOM
  • Bright, colourful and vibrant
  • Sturdy and well built

Cons

  • If you are planning to carry it out in your bag, it might not be that portable and lightweight
