Bought over by Logitech in 2008, Ultimate Ears has been making audio equipment since 1995, starting off with custom in-ear monitors (IEMs). Come 2013, they introduced their first wireless portable speaker, the UE BOOM. The brand’s local HQ is setting up a special promotion from today till the 31st of December, allowing consumers to pick up the 2nd best pick for water resistant Bluetooth speakers on thewirecutter.com.
The MSRP for these cans are RM 799, but throughout the period mentioned above, you’ll be able to purchase a single unit for RM 599 or pick up two and get the second one for only RM 399 – that works out to RM 499 for each, if you find a buddy that wants to pick up one for themselves.
Here’s a brief introduction, the UE BOOM gives you 360-degree audio transmitted through wireless Bluetooth and with its IPX4 it’ll get you through a splash but not full blown immersion in a pool. Music playback is quoted to last you 15 hours and any charging goes through its micro-USB port, while UE promises it’ll get back up to 100% in just 2 hours – using the wall adapter and plug that comes part of the package.
Given the opportunity to pick up two units, you’ll be happy to know that you can daisy chain them to give you a better stereo surround sound experience; makes sense as to why Logitech/Ultimate Ears would run this Year End promo.
Head on over to the stores listed below to check out the speakers in person and make use of the promo above:
