Logitech-owned audio products manufacturer Ultimate Ears (UE) has launched a newer variant of its portable Bluetooth speaker in India. Dubbed Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle, the wireless speakers are based on the UE Wonderboom, which were launched last year, and come in various funky colours—Concrete, Avocado, Patches, Raspberry and Unicorn—“to match every vibe.”
Not only that, the Wonderboom Freestyle Bluetooth speaker has a rugged design, and to achieve that, the California-based audio firm has made it water-resistant as well as drop-proof. UE is even calling its new speakers “virtually indestructible.” If you’re interested in buying this speaker, stay tuned for a full review on our website. Here’s a look at all the colour variants of the UE Wonderboom Freestyle.
Ultimate Ears Wonderboom Freestyle: Price In India, Availability
Priced at Rs. 6,995, the UE Wonderboom Bluetooth speakers will be available through TATA Croma as well as other leading online stores across the country starting August 2018. Since it’s an MRP, we believe that the market price of the Wonderboom Freestyle will definitely be lower than the sticker price. The speaker also comes with a two-year, hardware-only warranty. It can be purchased in various colour variants, as displayed above, depending on your choice and fashion.
Ultimate Eats Wonderboom Freestyle: Features, Specifications
The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom can be seen as a trimmed-down variant of the UE BOOM 2 and the UE Megaboom. Thanks to the Wonderboom’s Freestyle’s circular design, the company claims that it can offer 360-degree sound. The speaker is also IPX7 certified, which means that it can be immersed under water for up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes. The speaker also has a drop-proof design, and the company is claiming that the Wonderboom Freestyle can withstand from up to five feet of height.
Similar to the UE Roll 2, the UE Wonderboom Freestyle comes with large, funky-looking volume controls. The speaker also lets you use the buttons to play, pause, and skip music. There’s a hanging loop, which can be used to hang the Wonderboom Freestyle 2 on bikes, showers, or anything you like. It has a wireless range (line of sight) of up to 100 feet from the Bluetooth audio source. Once fully charged, the Wonderboom Freestyle 2 can last up to 10 hours of continuous music playback (but at a lower than maximum volume). You can also pair two Wonderboom Freestyle speakers for increased volume and stereo audio.
Building on the launch of WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection, 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.”
