UE Wonderboom: the latest and greatest portable speaker launches in Sydney

Ultimate Ears launches their latest and greatest speaker, the UE Wonderboom, on Tuesdsy 4 April 2017 at the Original Porteno in Cleverland, Surry Hills.

The Wonderboom is the newest in a celebrated line of Bluetooth speakers from Ultimate Ears, the audio brand acquired a few years ago by Logitech. It borrows some of the best features of the UE Boom 2 but sells for half the price. It’s also almost half the size (10cm high and 14 cm wide).

Guests walked into a winter wonderland with blue light, an ice sculpture with UE Wonderbooms embedded in it, a large snowball for snow fights, a fireplace and two chocolate fountains with strawberries, bananas, pineapple pieces, wine jellies, nougats and marshmallows for dipping.

in addition, they were spoilt with canapes consisting of: spiced lamb empanadas; smoked salmon with vodka and dill cream on a hash browns; wood fired pumpkin and ricotta cannoli; fig and gorgonzola tart with vincotto; and smokey pork sausage with plum sauce.

For drinks they were treated to: the Mistress Jerry cocktail (made with spiced rum, raspberry puree, lime juice, and honey ginger spirit); mulled wine; Peroni beer; 2012 Candela red blend from Argentina; and Les Vignes Blanches from France.

But the biggest treat of all was the UE Wonderboom that was given to celebrities and media to take home. Celebrities included: The Bachelor’s Lisa Hyde; Big Brother host Mike Goldman; Big Brother contestants Tim Dormer, Jake Richardson and Lisa Clark; Nova newsreader Matt de Groot; and selfie instagram sensation Kurt Coleman.

The UE Wonderboom can wirelessly play (stream) to two Wonderbooms from one source, with a 360 degree sound and a ten hour battery life (that charges in 2.8 hours).

The Wonderboom, like the rest of the UE Boom family, is waterproof (up to a depth of 5 metres of water for 30 minutes) and shockproof (when dropped from 1.5m or less). It’s adorable. It’s affordable. And it floats!

The UE Wonderboom comes in a variety of colours: lilac, stone (grey), subzero (blue), cashmere (pink), fireball (blood orange) and phantom (black).

It retails for $129.95.

Turn the party up with a new app by Ultimate Ears

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.
