The multi award-winning UE BOOM by Ultimate Ears has helped transform how you experience music out in the world, and today UE announced its next step in evolving the way you enjoy music. Teaming with semiconductor company CSR pIc, UE is delivering enhanced connectivity to its existing and future users, allowing you to connect more than 10 of its popular UE BOOM and/or new UE MEGABOOM speakers together at once. The feature is expected to be available in Summer 2015 and is being demoed this week at the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas, Nev.
“Our mission is to transform the way people experience their music, together, out in the world,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “That’s why, on top of a design that looks and sounds great, and can go anywhere, we designed these speakers to frequently update with new features. We are committed to helping you fit your music into your lifestyle, and all the features we’ve introduced – and plan to introduce – are available to anyone, no matter when you purchased your speaker, and come together to give you a mobile music experience like no other.”
Since 2013, UE has been pushing the mobile speaker category forward with industry-first features delivered as software updates available to every speaker purchased since the launch of UE BOOM, including Double Up, alarm functionality and remote On/Off. UE is also the first to introduce over-the-air updates for Bluetooth® speakers, making updating your speaker easier than ever before. Now, UE is giving you an easy way to create an even bigger ad hoc speaker system anywhere you want, whether camping with friends, throwing an impromptu party on campus or hitting the ski slopes.
“As an industry pioneer for Bluetooth streaming audio, CSR has been continuously pushing every boundary to deliver high quality wireless audio along with innovative features that can transform the consumer experience,” said Anthony Murray, SVP Business Group for CSR. “The multi-share speaker technology that we have developed enables consumers to truly unleash their audio in ways never before possible, and we’re delighted to collaborate with Ultimate Ears to unveil the demo experience of our technology.”
To take advantage of the new feature once it’s available, simply download the free app for iOS® or Android™ for your respective speaker, open it and upgrade your speaker’s software in the settings menu.
