Ultimate Ears EpicBoom Portable Bluetooth Speakers

The portable Bluetooth loudspeaker category continues to expand as more high-end brands dip their toes into the deep end which already includes Sonos, Bluesound, JBL, Bose, Sony, Monster, and many others. One brand that has already solidified its positioning in both the high-end IEMs and portable Bluetooth loudspeakers is Logitech-owned Ultimate Ears. UE has focused on improving sound quality and connectivity with each new generation of products and that includes those that are designed for larger outdoor spaces like the backyard and beach. The new Ultimate Ears EPICBOOM have arrived and look ready to take on Sonos in the category.

From Jonah Staw, General Manager of Ultimate Ears: “We design our products with our customers and their lifestyles in mind,…Customers want huge sound in a conveniently portable package and that’s what we have delivered with EPICBOOM. This speaker boasts our signature Ultimate Ears high-fidelity sound while delivering plenty of volume. We’re excited to add EPICBOOM to our product portfolio.
