Ultimate Ears has introduced BOOM 3 and MEGABOOM 3 portable, waterproof Bluetooth speakers with 360-degree sound, two-toned, high performance fabric body. These also have Magic Button on top of the speaker to play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speakers. These provide deeper bass and improved clarity over the original MEGABOOM, says the company.
When paired with the iOS mobile app, you get one-touch access to all of your favorite playlists on Apple Music, and the Magic Button lets you access playlists on Deezer Premium on Android. Additional music services will be added in future.
