Ultimate Ears developed a new waterproof speaker called the Wonderboom. This device is the latest one which appeared in a line of Bluetooth speakers launched by Ultimate Ears. This audio brand was acquired by Logitech a few years ago. Last year, the UE Boom 2 was among people’s favorite speaker, surpassing the performance of UE Boom.
The Wonderboom is waterproof and shockproof
Now, the new Wonderboom is equipped with some of the best features of the UE Boom 2. The good news is that the new device will have half the price of the Boom 2, namely $100. The Wonderboom is waterproof, up to 15 feet deep for 30 minutes. Moreover, the device is shockproof if it is dropped from less than 5 feet.
This Bluetooth speaker is different from all the other developed by UE since it is not just waterproof. The speaker also floats. People can easily throw it in the pool while going for a swim while listening to their favorite music. Nevertheless, users should know that usually Bluetooth signals get disrupted by water, and the connection might be a little troubled.
Users can connect it to other portable speakers
This waterproof speaker will continue to play your jams even if you drop it or kick it like a ball. The Wonderboom is different from its more expensive siblings. This speaker is easier to be used, compared with others because it is equipped with a new button on top. If the user presses the button once, he or she can pause or play the music. When pressing twice, users can skip several tracks.
If the user presses and holds, then his or her Waterboom will be able to pair up with other such devices in the area to develop a multi-speaker system. The Megaboom and the UE Boom 2 also feature the double up characteristic only users need to pair up the devices via an app.
Now, comparing this speaker with others of its kind, people say that this one does not sound as good as the Megaboom or UE Boom 2. The Wonderboom features a smaller design than other speakers and, thus, it packs smaller drivers. Even if it is outfitted with 360-degree sound, the Wonderboom doesn’t sound as good as its siblings. This happens because the waterproof speaker is cheaper than other portable speakers.
