Ultimate Ears today announced a limited edition UE BOOM portable Bluetooth speaker, custom designed by electronic dance music producer Skrillex. The new product is called the Skrillex Edition UE BOOM and sells for $200.
Just as UE has disrupted how people listen to the music they love, out loud and on the go, Skrillex has transformed their music experience through the creative use of technology, tapping a variety of computer programs to write, record and mix his tracks. Now, his captivating visual style is reflected through his hand-drawn work in this custom designed UE BOOM.
Introduced in 2013, UE BOOM has won four prestigious design awards. Built to withstand anything life throws at it, and to survive wherever you want to take it, UE BOOM has a cylindrical shape that blasts bold 360-degree sound, and it features a water- and stain-resistant acoustic skin and up to 15 hours of battery life. And now, through this collaboration, UE BOOM is the absolute symbol of how people experience and interact with music today.
