UE Bluetooth Speakers Get a Color Refresh (Spring 2017)

Ultimate Ears (UE) announced eight new patterns and color options for their BOOM 2 and MEGABOOM portable wireless Bluetooth speaker line. The new designs, labeled as the Second Street Collection were created in collaboration with internationally renowned graffiti duo Bicicleta Sem Freio. Pricing remains the same at $200 and $300, respectively.

The speakers differ mainly in size, loudness and bass extension. MEGABOOM is the bigger, deeper sounding one, but still very portable. Both offer 360-degree immersive sound, waterproofing and are virtually indestructible. In addition, one or more “BOOM” speakers can be used together either for double the sound or stereo listening. Up to three different Bluetooth devices can be paired with each for easier connectivity for parties or households with multiple smartphones and tablets.

Here is the new Second Street Collection line-up:

  • Cityscape and Urban Zebra showcase bold geometrics and stark, graphic patterns in neutral tones inspired by the monolithic structures in the urban landscape.
  • After Hours and Marina embody a classic palette of red and blue turned up to an electrifying intensity.
  • Midnight Garden, Stone, Cashmere and Lilac feature soft, warm and vaguely luminous tones inspired by the hazy light of spring.

Since 2013, Ultimate Ears has collaborated with artists and musicians for limited-edition speakers. UE’s newest limited-edition Second Street Collection joins a gallery of more than 50 designs from creative minds such as the GRAMMY Award winning electronic dance music producer Skrillex, contemporary paper sculptor Jen Stark and legendary street artist Kenny Scharf, as well as other limited editions inspired by music, art and design trends.

Price and Availability
The Second Street Collection from Ultimate Ears is expected to be available in select countries globally beginning in June 2017.  Pattern and color availability will vary by country.

  • $199.99 for BOOM 2
  • $299.99 for MEGABOOM

The previous solid color UE BOOM2/MEGABOOM speakers are currently discounted $50-$75 off at Amazon.com. So unless you absolutely love any of the new colors, it is not clear they are worth the extra cost.
