Ultimate Ears Brings Music to Life

New global brand campaign celebrates the transformative power of music; also announces new limited-edition speakers

LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif. — May 31, 2017 — Today, Ultimate Ears launched “Bring Music To Life,” a new global brand campaign that celebrates the transformative power of music. In collaboration with internationally renowned graffiti duo Bicicleta Sem Freio, the campaign brings together music and art to showcase the technology that Ultimate Ears fans love about their award-winning, wireless BluetoothⓇ speakers: 360-degree immersive sound, seriously waterproof and virtually indestructible. With a pinstripe suit-wearing octopus drummer, a rad sea monster and a boxing panther, Bicicleta Sem Freio brings each innovative feature to life in three original illustrations that are as irreverent, bold and creative as the Ultimate Ears brand.

“Music has the power to enhance, energize and connect people, and you feel this whenever you turn the speaker on,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “The belief that you can spontaneously transform any moment with music - anytime, anywhere - is at the heart of every experience from Ultimate Ears. We don’t just make speakers, we bring music to life.”

This global campaign kicks off with three videos and digital advertising featuring artwork by Bicicleta Sem Freio, followed by a phased rollout of a new logo and more eco-friendly packaging.

Since 2013, Ultimate Ears has collaborated with artists and musicians to bring music to life with our limited-edition speakers.

The Second Street Collection will launch globally with eight new patterns and colors for Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 and Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM.

Cityscape and Urban Zebra showcase bold geometrics and stark, graphic patterns in neutral tones inspired by the monolithic structures in the urban landscape.

After Hours and Marina embody a classic palette of red and blue turned up to an electrifying intensity.

Midnight Garden, Stone, Cashmere and Lilac feature soft, warm and vaguely luminous tones inspired by the hazy light of spring.

Pricing and Availability

The Second Street Collection from Ultimate Ears is expected to be available in select countries globally beginning in June 2017 for suggested retail prices of $199.99 for BOOM 2 and $299.99 for MEGABOOM.

Stream and share your music anytime, anywhere, with WONDERBOOM, whether you’re partying by the pool, getting ready for a night out with friends or surviving that muddy, dusty summer festival. If it gets soaked, no worries. If it gets dirty, rinse it off.

“Don’t be fooled by its size or price; this little beauty is also a beast,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “WONDERBOOM is a pint-sized, super-portable Bluetooth speaker with surprisingly big sound. And, just like the rest of the Ultimate Ears family, it’s also virtually indestructible.”

ULTIMATE EARS UNVEILS WORLD’S FIRST SOCIAL MUSIC PLAYER: BOOM

NEWARK, Calif. — May 21, 2013 — Today Ultimate Ears introduced UE BOOM, a social music player made to help you rage, riot, party and play the music you love, out loud. It’s designed to make the most of digital music’s convenience, while making it less of a solitary experience.

UE BOOM is the first-ever social music player, a wireless speaker that’s packed with a specific set of features that sets a new standard for listening to music. It offers 360-degree sound and features a 15-hour rechargeable battery. Its versatile go-anywhere shape is wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant so you can enjoy your music anywhere you go. And it is made for connecting with others. If more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM app (available for iOS™ and Android™) to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode.

“The digital age has changed how we listen to our favorite songs and interact with music,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “While online music services have made it easier to access your music, it's remained a challenge to have an anytime, anywhere listening experience that can be shared with others. UE BOOM solves that problem. Ultimate Ears strives to amplify the social experience of listening to music, bringing people together around the music they love. UE BOOM is designed to bring music out into the world, and that’s why we’re also supporting this introduction with a campaign to inspire young music fans to make music social.”

In conjunction with the launch of UE BOOM, Ultimate Ears is initiating The Social Music Experiment – a lighthearted examination of the effect music has on people in social environments. As part of this effort throughout the summer, Ultimate Ears is teaming up with YouTube comedy channel JASH and its noted music expert, Reggie Watts, to produce an original series entitled The Social Music Experiment. Reggie will play the role of Ultimate Ears’ first ever “Head of Socio-Musicology” putting his social music theories to the test in a series of hilarious real-world experiments. In each episode Reggie will take a UE BOOM and his crazy hypothesis to the streets to understand the effects that social music has on everyday people in everyday places. The series launches today exclusively on JASH’s comedy network on YouTube (http://jash.com/social-music-experiment/) and will then be syndicated beginning May 28 across a variety of other digital sites including Collegehumor.com and ultimateears.com. Episodes are expected to roll out through the end of June.

After nearly 20 years of working with the most discerning ears in music, Ultimate Ears has set out to help change the way people experience the music they love with its range of critically acclaimed wireless speakers and earphones. That tradition continues with UE BOOM and interactive programs such as The Social Music Experiment.

Pricing and Availability

UE BOOM is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in May 2013, and in select countries in Asia in June 2013, for a suggested retail price of $199.99. For more information, and to find a retailer near you, please visit www.ultimateears.com.

RECEN­SIONI E RICONO­SCIMENTI

WIRED

“The audio that comes out of the WONDERBOOM is as plump as the speaker itself. The 10-hour battery provides enough juice for long dog-day afternoons. It’s also super-totable: The elastic loop means you can carabiner it to your pack or zip-tie it to your handlebars. And since it floats, you don’t have to worry about dropping it into the drink—or the punch bowl.”

CNET

"Ultimate Ears has a new waterproof Bluetooth speaker that's shorter and squatter than its popular UE Boom 2 speaker. For a sub-$100 Bluetooth speaker, the UE Wonderboom is near the top of the class for sound quality."

GQ

“The pool-safe UE WONDERBOOM ($100) is softball-sized but delivers sound that can be heard all the way to the deep end—especially when you link two together.”

Health

“What’s a beach day without a chill playlist? This portable speaker is easy to tote around and works on Bluetooth. Plus, it’s waterproof, so if it gets splashed on, no need to freak out!” 

HGTV Magazine

"It’s the best portable Bluetooth speaker you can buy: waterproof, loud, and, with 15 hours of battery life, long-lasting. And it’s not that much bigger—or heavier—than a can of beer.”

Bon Appetit

“A light waterproof Bluetooth-enabled speaker that’ll play for up to ten hours.” 

Travel + Leisure

"It’s tougher than it looks: UE’s latest speaker can survive being dropped or drenched, so you can rock out poolside (or as one tester learned, leave it outside in a thunderstorm) without fear of shorting the circuitry. Plus, it weighs less than a pound."

The Verge

"These cute speakers are capable of filling an average-sized room with sound, and they can work up to 100 feet away from a Bluetooth source. They come in customizable colors and deliver great sound, considering their size."

Better Homes & Gardens

"With a range of 100 feet, it ups the energy of any outdoor workout."

Self

"As you can see in the picture, this blushing pink speaker (or millennial pink, whatever you want to call it) floats. It also has about a 10-hour battery life, and if you and your friends have a few of them, they can all sync up to maximize the sound."

HuffPost

"This is probably the coolest bluetooth speaker I’ve ever owned. It provides clear, crisp music with 10 hours of battery life. It comes in cool, stylish colors. Best of all: It is COMPLETELY waterproof. I tossed the speaker straight into a swimming pool, and my music continued to blast loud and clear. Yes, it’s pretty damn awesome. Never ceases to amaze my friends and family."

InStyle

"A nautical-looking rope handle lets you grab and take this pretty-in-pink speaker anywhere."

Business Insider

"If you're looking to get good sound in the outdoors, you could do a lot worse than the $100 Ultimate Ears Wonderboom."

Marie Claire

"Drop-proof, waterproof – essentially party-proof.” 

Forbes

"If I had to choose one of these speakers to recommend as the most well-rounded option, my pick would be the UE WONDERBOOM. It comes close to the Libratone One Click in audio quality and battery life, but it’s smaller and easier to carry, waterproof (and capable of floating) and at $99.99 it’s half the price."

PopSugar

"If your dad likes listening to music on his iPod or his smartphone, get him a nice bluetooth speaker. Of course, you might have to show him how to set this up, but he will be able to enjoy his music throughout the house or even on the go."

HuffPost

"Every outdoor adventure should be accompanied by summer tunes and the UE Roll 2 is a great option. It’s portable, waterproof and most importantly, can boom your tunes of choice at the beach, pool or patio."

Inc.

"The WONDERBOOM speaker packs a great sound into a small package and it’s completely waterproof.”

Conde Nast Traveler

“It’s got tremendous sound and nearly endless battery life, but the real kicker is that this waterproof Bluetooth speaker floats.”

Sports Illustrated

“Compact, waterproof and with enough power to fill up a big room, let Ultimate Ears help dad get the party started with their latest portable speaker.”

BuzzFeed

The WONDERBOOM was better than the Flip 4 where it really counts: playing music.”

The Wirecutter

"Irresistible combination of sound quality, ruggedness, water resistance, portability, cool features, and a reasonable price." The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Real Simple

BOOM 2 “has completely changed the way I listen to music,”

“Listening to music doesn’t get better than this.” 

Fortune

"Many Bluetooth speakers can only connect to a single device. The MEGABOOM, priced at $250, can handle two at a time, meaning you're not limited to a single music library when at the beach."

Gear Patrol

"This pill-shaped 360-degree speaker is the most stylish of the bunch and comes in a broad selection of colors."

iPhone Life

“Truly, this speaker has some of the best, most boisterous audio of any Bluetooth speaker on the market, rugged or otherwise…To say I was blown away by the BOOM would be an understatement.”

HuffPost

“Don’t be fooled by the small size of this coconut-sized Bluetooth speaker...If you know Ultimate Ears, you know you’re getting incredible sound quality." 

Digital Trends

“If an unsinkable speaker is what floats your boat, you want the WONDERBOOM,” 

TechRadar

"This tiny speaker punches well above its size, providing rich bass for a speaker so small."

Gear Patrol

"Best for 360-Degree Sound."

NY Post - Joel McHale

“I listen to a lot of music, podcasts and frequently replay voicemails from people I have wronged. Also, it’s waterproof, which is great, because I drink a lot.” 

WIRED

“And since the speaker is massively popular and all of your friends have one, you can take advantage of a new software update that lets you connect two, three, seven, twenty-eight speakers together to blanket the whole party in sound." Best Wireless Bluetooth Speaker 2016

Sports Illustrated

“Shopping for an audiophile? Look no further than the MEGABOOM. Portable, durable and waterproof, this powerful speaker brings the party wherever, whenever.”
