UE's Boom speaker line is one of the most popular in all of Bluetooth speakerdom, and for good reason. They have awesome sound, are well-made, and have been reasonably priced, often going on sale on Amazon.
Now, Ultimate Ears has announced the Boom 3 and Megaboom 3, which continue the tradition of portable, water-resistant Bluetooth speakers with a long range (now 150 feet, up from 100), long battery life, and a brand new smart feature called the "Magic Button."
The Magic Button instantly controls Apple Music on your iPhone or iPad and Deezer Premium on Android, and is limited to those services for now. The physical redesign comes in the form of two-tone fabric, which UE says is made for motorcycle jackets and fire equipment.
UE is also promising deeper bass on the Megaboom 3, as well as "improved clarity." The company is also completely skipping the "2" moniker for Megaboom and aligning both Booms under the "3" name.
Both speakers now feature an IP67 rating, which means they're dustproof and can survive submersion in up to 3 feet of water for 30 minutes, so they're perfect for all environments. Even better is that they're both now designed to float, so you can enjoy some tunes by the pool or right in the pool.
