The next-generation portable wireless speaker, UE Megaboom, launched in Sydney at Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool on Wednsesday 24 January 2015.
UE Megaboom is an enhanced version of its predcessor, the UE Boom. It has freakishly amazing 360 degree sound with deep, heart pounding bass, it is completely waterproof (rather than being water resistent) with IPX7 certification, it has a 30 minute bluetooth range, it has a 30 hour battery life and there is a free UE Megaboom app for IOS and Android that provides additional cool features such as musical alarm, fully customised sound and remote control on and off.
The young and trendsetting celebrities that attended the launch included Olympic Swimmer Liesel Jones, selfie king Kurt Coleman, X-Factor contestant Adrien Nookadu, Saturday Disney’s Teigan Nash and Candice Dixon, Channel 7’s Bring Sexy Back Cameron Byrnes, fashion designer Troy Pes, Big Borther Contestant Jake Richardson, Popstars contestant Arnott Olsen and Home and Away star Phillipa Northeast.
The General Manager of Ultimate Ears, Rory Dooley, flew in from San Francisco for the event and made a special presentation including the submerging of a UE Megaboom in a fishbowl while it was playing music. This was followed by members of the Australian synchronised swimming team preforming in the pool downstairs holding UE Megabooms and two bubble dancers performing inside floating clear balls.
The UE Megaboom will be available in Australian stores (such as JB Hi-fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith Electronics) from the middle of February 2015 and will retail at about $350.
