After three years since its last release, Ultimate Ears is announcing the WONDERBOOM 3, the latest addition to the WONDERBOOM wireless speaker line, designed for use outdoors. Proudly showing improvements in nearly every aspect of the speaker, the WONDERBOOM 3 boasts a longer range of 131', improved battery life of up to 14 hours, and two convenience features targeted at those in the Google mobile ecosystem: Google Fast Pair and “Works with Chromebook” certification. Ultimate Ears has also taken steps to ensure its new speaker is less harmful to the environment by using a minimum of 31% post-consumer recycled plastic and FSC-certified packaging. Fans of the WONDERBOOM line will be happy to hear that these new elements only enhance the core features they’ve come to love and those in need of a durable, eco-friendly Bluetooth speaker will find their needs met in the WONDERBOOM 3.
As with previous generations of the WONDERBOOM, the WONDERBOOM 3 is made for the outdoors. Ultimate Ears has put the speaker through drop testing of up to 5' and managed to achieve an IP67 rating, which means it is waterproof and dustproof. In fact, the WONDERBOOM 3 can float if dropped in water and can even be submerged for a short period of time.
This most important aspect of any wireless speaker is its sound and Ultimate Ears did not mess with a good thing. The WONDERBOOM 3 continues to employ dual 40mm drivers with dual passive radiators for 360 degrees of dynamic music with booming bass. If that is still not enough, WONDERBOOM 3 owners can also double up their sound with the purchase of a second speaker. With two WONDERBOOM 3 Bluetooth speakers, you can either pair them for a bigger soundstage, or use them for true stereo sound.
As easy to use as ever, the WONDERBOOM 3 sports a pair of the line’s most iconic convenience features. The WONDERBOOM 3 has the integrated fabric loop for carrying or hanging the speaker as well as the huge “+” and “-” volume adjustment buttons featured on the previous versions. If you’re a WONDERBOOM fan looking to upgrade or gift someone with outdoor-friendly, 360-degree sound, you can find the new WONDERBOOM 3 right now at B&H. The new portable speaker comes in four distinctive colors: Active Black, Performance Blue, Joyous Bright Gray, and Hyper Pink. Ready to upgrade your portable speaker setup?
