It is no secret that we are fans of the Ultimate Ears Boom. The speaker is one of the most hard-wearing and versatile ones we have used. So much so a few of us have even bought them. Well Ultimate Ears just upped the game by announcing the new UE Megaboom.
Ok, whilst not the most inventive of names it does throw us back through the years to the ‘Mega Blaster’, with what we can only assume is a larger and louder version on the UE Boom. The Megaboom now stands at 8.5 inches tall and 3.25 inches around the erm, girth. it comes in on the scales at a little under 2 pounds and the old resistant skin is outed, replaced with an IPX7 certified one that is now completely waterproof.
Still with the same great 360 degree sound, superb battery life and that improved waterproof skin, the UE Megaboom keeps all the best parts of the original Boom but just adds more power which can only be a good thing. The only thing no-one wants to confirm is actually the level of sound output? I guess we will just have to try it out and see.
Available now for a RRP of £249.99. More info at www.ultimateears.com.
