Ultimate Ears or UE is a brand by Logitech which has been producing some really good speakers in the recent past. Today the Indian leg of the company has gone ahead and launched Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle Bluetooth speakers in the country. They were globally showcased few months ago and today they have been launched in five different colour combinations in India. The speaker styles have been given innovative names like Concrete, Avacado, Patches Raspery and Unicorn.
The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle speakers are waterproof with IPX7 rating and drop proof. The company claims to have tested them from a drop height of 1.5 meters. That is roughly 5 feet and nothing has happened to them. The device features rubber and cloth exteriors. The power and Bluetooth buttons can be found on the top of the device. The logo on top also doubles up as a play and pause button. The same can be used to skip songs as well.
Sumanta Datta, Managing Director and Cluster Head, South West Asia and Indonesia, Logitech, said, “The new collection by Ultimate Ears is all about expressing yourself. You curate your playlist and personal style – why not have a speaker that reflects that style too? WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection gives you big sound and the freedom to express your style in a trendy, tough and worry proof speaker. The new collection strengthens the Ultimate Ears portfolio for the Indian market with industry leading speakers across entry, mid and premium range.”
The volume buttons in the form of plus and minus are located on the front of the device and users can use the supplied charging cable with any USB charger to charge Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle speakers. The wireless range of the speaker is 100 feet and two such speakers can be paired together as well. The speakers weigh 425 grams and come with 2-year limited hardware warranty. The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle speakers are priced at Rs 6,995 and will be available in Croma and other leading retail chains starting august 2018.
