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.
