Outdoor Boost and True Stereo Pairing Enhance Ultimate Ears’ New Pint-Sized Wonder
Ultimate Ears is back to introduce the next generation of their portable and waterproof BluetoothⓇ speaker—Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2. This new speaker rocks even bigger 360-degree sound than before and extra bass anywhere you need it. With an all-new Outdoor Boost mode, extended 13-hour battery life, IP67 rating, Double Up true stereo pairing and eye-catching two-tone knit fabric, WONDERBOOM 2 is ready to accompany you on day trips, beach detours and biking adventures with booming sound to follow you every step of your journey.
“Our customers love the original WONDERBOOM, so we wanted to give them even more of what they enjoy in WONDERBOOM 2,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “We’ve taken on-the-go music listening even further with new audio features that fit your outdoor environment and the ability to experience true stereo sound when you pair two WONDERBOOM 2 speakers together. Now, you can take music anywhere and enjoy even bigger, crisper 360-degree sound in any conditions, all day long.”
The brand new Outdoor Boost feature is specially-tuned for outdoor listening. Simply press the button located on the bottom of your WONDERBOOM 2 speaker to turn on Outdoor Boost and experience louder, crisper audio with a built-in and pre-adjusted equalizer (EQ) that compliments any outdoor environment.
Unlike its predecessor, WONDERBOOM 2 now comes equipped with even more bass, thanks to a lower cutoff frequency, 30 percent more battery life and a new IP67 rating, making it waterproof, dustproof, and able to float. With a redesigned button interface on the top, you can easily play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speaker. You can even pair two WONDERBOOM 2 speakers using the upgraded Double Up feature to enjoy a true wireless, left and right stereo experience, or simply party louder.
Each speaker comes in a stylish two-tone fabric, drawing inspiration from this season’s athleisure wear and colorways. WONDERBOOM 2 will be available in the following five colors: Deep Space Black (Black), Crushed Ice (Grey), Radical Red (Red), Bermuda Blue (Blue) and Just Peach (Pink).
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2 is available now in select countries in Europe, and for pre-order in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $99.99. It is also expected to be available in Asia, and Australia and New Zealand beginning this summer. Pricing varies by country. For more information, please visit www.amazon.com/ultimateears.
