Can you feel it? It’s only June but the heat has already arrived in many parts of the country and it looks like it is going to be a rather hot summer. Whilst not everyone loves the excessive heat and humidity, beaches are already packed from Maine through the Jersey Shore and all the way down the coast to many parts of Florida. Taking a portable Bluetooth speaker with you that can withstand the elements has become part of the summer experience and the category continues to grow with new models from Sonos, Bluesound, JBL, Bose, Monster, Sony and more.

Another key brand that is expanding its offerings is Logitech-owned Ultimate Ears. UE has focused on improving sound quality and connectivity with each new generation of speakers with an emphasis for use in larger outdoor spaces. The EVERBOOM is the latest product offering from Ultimate Ears.  

UE EVERBOOM is a waterproof portable speaker designed to deliver 360° sound. As the little sister to the previously launched EPICBOOM, the EVERBOOM comes in an even more compact package, which is perfect for outdoor lovers who need a speaker that can keep up with their adventurous lifestyle.

EVERBOOM Core Features

Portability: The EVERBOOM is designed to deliver high-quality sound in a portable package. Its carabiner allows easy clipping to bags, gear, and backpacks.

Sound: Despite its small size the EVERBOOM provides clear, resonant sound. The speaker drivers are precision-tuned which supports punchy mids, clear highs, and deep bass. An Outdoor Boost button is provided to optimize outdoor sound.

Rugged Design: The EVERBOOM has an IP67 rating. This means that it is waterproof, dustproof, and floatable.

Long Playtime: The EVERBOOM can provide up to 20 hours of music playtime on a full battery charge.  

Bluetooth Support: The EVERBOOM supports Bluetooth version 5.1 and has a 55-meter transmit/receive range for connecting to smartphones and other compatible Bluetooth source devices. 

NFC (Near Field Communication): The one-touch NFC feature allows quick pairing with NFC-compatible smartphones.

Boom App: The EVERBOOM is compatible with the BOOM app (includes PARTYUP which allows the pairing of multiple Ultimate Ears speakers). You can also wirelessly connect to compatible EPICBOOM, BOOM, MEGABOOM, and HYPERBOOM speakers for an expanded sound experience

Megaphone Feature: This transforms the EVERBOOM into a megaphone with a simple tap on the Ultimate Ears BOOM app. Whether calling friends to the dance floor or making announcements, your voice will project loud and clear.

Tip: Megaphone is being made available for use on all Ultimate Ears speakers that are compatible with the BOOM app.

From Jonah Staw, General Manager of Ultimate Ears: “Our users have dynamic lives that require a soundtrack as adaptable and resilient as their various activities,…EVERBOOM is our answer to their call for a portable speaker that marries robustness with superior sound quality. It’s meant to be a core part of their explorations.

Initial Impressions

Ultimate Ears has an ever-expanding lineup of compact portable Bluetooth Speakers, and the EVERBOOM is designed for those who like all of the capabilities of the previously released EPICBOOM, but in a smaller package. Meanwhile, the new WONDERBOOM 4, MEGABOOM 4, and BOOM 4 arrive in new colors, but are nearly identical to their predecessors. So buyers may opt for discounted 3 series models while supplies last at Amazon.

Competition in the Bluetooth portable speaker category is pretty stiff, with lots of choices from several brands, but Ultimate Ears is serious about taking this on with its extensive lineup. With Summer 2024 now here, UE could make a big impact with those who love the outdoors.
