A new app that allows you to connect up to 50 wireless Ultimate Ears speakers together was launched at Carriageworks in Eveleigh on Wednesday 5 October 2016.
Three years ago, Ultimate Ears launched their first portable wireless bluetooth speaker that provided 360 degree sound and was water resistant. Then in January 2015, Ultimate Ears released the larger UE Megaboom which had bigger sound, better waterproofing and extended battery life. Later in September 2015, Ultimate Ears released UE Boom 2 which featured IPX7 waterproofing, 25 percent more volume and a greater wireless range. These speakers also had free apps that you could connect two or more speakers together to create even louder sound.
Now, with the addition of the PartyUp app, you can wirelessly connect a mix of UE BOOM, UE BOOM 2 and UE MEGABOOM speakers together, allowing you to crank up the music in places where no other sound system can go.
To demonstrate the effectiveness of the app, more than 50 UE Booms hung from the ceiling of Carriageworks and were played simultaneously at the event. Other entertainment included The Twins DJs djing, robots who walked around on stilts, and a woman performed with fire and a power tool to create sparks.
The event was attended by members the tech media world and influencers such as the selfie king Kurt Coleman, Meg and Dom from Citizens of the World, former MTV VJ Kristian Schmidt, half of the Cronulla Sharks football team, and fashion stylist Joshua Heath.
PartyUp is available through the iOS® and Android™ app stores beginning today. This free app enhancement works with UE BOOM, UE BOOM 2 and UE MEGABOOM through the UE BOOM and UE MEGABOOM apps. Speakers are sold separately. For more information, please visit http://www.ultimateears.com/en-au.
UE Boom By Ultimate Ears is the summer accessory to share the Sounds of Summer with your friends. It is Australia’s biggest-selling wireless Bluetooth speaker. It has a 15 hour battery life, is water and stain resistant and comes in a range of colours. You can play music from two bluetooth enabled devices at the same time, wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together in stereo via the UE BOOM app to instantly spread the sound and volume, or take phone calls from up to 50 metres away!
On 7 December 2014, UE Boom launched the Sounds of Summer by hosting two free live events at The Bucket List in Bondi and Komune Beach Club in the Gold Coast. Music was broadcast live between the bars and sponsored by NOVA 96.9 and 90.9 Sea FM. Celebrity guests, bloggers and party peeps at both venues experienced the unique opportunity to celebrate the beachside summer vibes to all live acts.
In Bondi, MC Faustina Agolley (aka Fuzzy) cranked the UE BOOM to the all Australian live line up which included Mis Joelle, Lime Cordiale, Thief, Justice Crew and What About Tonight.
Social media sensation, Kurt Coleman, flew in to Sydney for the day from the Gold Coast to attend the event. At the age of 17, he has more followers on Facebook and Instagram than most bloggers could dream of. While everyone was drinking alcohol in the VIP area, he drank coke and informed everyone that he was only a month or two away from drinking alcohol. He was very pleasant, posing for photographs and sharing his story of how he was expelled from high school when he became popular on social media.
UE Booms were given away at both venues. Party peeps entered the competition to win one by uploading a photo on Instagram, hashtagging #makemusicsocial and tagging the corresponding venue.
