Waterproof UE Boom 2 rolls up to the party

Headphones let us enjoy music just about anywhere, but if you don't want to isolate yourself socially and share some tunes then a portable speaker is the way to go. However, not all are built to withstand the perils of rough outdoor life, and ones that are may not be portable or loud enough. Ultimate Ears' new UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker is designed to be adventure-proof, louder, and longer-reaching than the original.Read More

New Triple-Driver Earphones – that’s right, three speakers inside each ear

October 5, 2006 Given the rate at which digital audio and video players are being sold, it’s reasonable to expect that within a decade, personal entertainment devices will be ubiquitous, and they will all have a headphone jack and every human being above the poverty line will carry a set of headphones.

At $US 900 for the top of the line UE-10 Pro model (over twice the price of a 40GB i-Pod) it may seem expensive for an earpiece, but Ultimate Ears are hand crafted for your ear from an imprint made by an audiologist and offer unparalleled sound quality backed up by a personalized frequency response measurement test.
