Custom Design Your Own Speaker

On March 4, 2019 Ultimate Ears introduced the myBOOM studio website that lets anyone custom design their latest BOOM 3 portable Bluetooth speaker. You can select a choice of fabric colors and patterns for the cylinder, end caps, volume buttons, spine, loop, and text (20 characters max). It’s pretty cool to play around with and works just as easy on mobile or desktop. There’s a lot of crazy options to choose from, but I went with ecoustics colors — red and white with a touch of black on the loop. It’s truly one of a kind!

The website states orders take 3-4 weeks to arrive, but myBOOM 3 arrived in 18 days. All unboxing photos are posted on Instagram @ecoustics. Be sure to notice ECOUSTICS.COM embossed on the spine.

For those not familiar with this speaker, Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 comes in a four standard colors priced at $149.99. A made-to-order version costs $30 more at $179.99. Otherwise BOOM 3 and myBOOM 3 are the same. To give you a sense of size, it’s smaller the original Amazon Echo. However, Ultimate Ears does make a larger version called MEGABOOM 3 for $199 that you’ll want to check out if sound quality is more important than portability.

BOOM 3 features a range of upgrades over its predecessor including a stunning, two-toned fabric and a brand new Magic Button on top of the speaker for even more convenient music control. What I liked most about Magic Button was a single tap starts playing whatever you were last listening to last on your phone.

Additional upgrades include improved Bluetooth range for up to 150 feet, a new IP67 rating for waterproof and dustproof ruggedness. Now there’s easier charging with optional POWER UP ($39.99) dock compatibility and a redesigned USB port on the back versus bottom. It also floats in water.

A micro USB charging cable is included, but not a wall plug adapter. That’s probably a good thing and better for the environment, because most people already have USB adapters that came with a smartphone or a spare USB port on a computer.

BOOM 3 can PartyUp, also known as pairing with up 150 speakers, which works with previous generations of BOOM, making it amazingly configurable. With two speakers, wireless stereo pairing is possible to assign left and right channels. It’s all controlled via app for iOS or Android. Lastly, 15 hours of battery life keeps the music playing and recharging to a minimum.
