The BOOM 3 Bluetooth Speaker: Waterproof and Shockproof Audiophile Quality Unleashed

The Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 is the gold-standard go-anywhere Bluetooth speaker. It boasts balanced 360° sound, deep bass, and one-touch music control. It is also water-, dust- and drop-proof. It even floats.

Compared to other Bluetooth outdoor speakers we’ve demoed, one advantage of the BOOM 3 is its cylindrical shape. Mainly this means that you don’t have to move it around as much to redirect the sound. You can put it pretty much anywhere, on any surface, and the output is well-defined and focused.

The BOOM 3 size is also ideal for a tripping speaker. Not too small and not too big, you can hold it comfortably in your hand or stow it away in a tent or backpack pocket when not in use. But it will always be in use. For such a diminutive package, the sound is big and warm. The bass never distorts, and the high end is never pitchy. More than a personal speaker, the BOOM 3 can rock a crowd.

The BOOM 3 perfects the iconic cylindrical design pioneered by Ultimate Ears to deliver immersive, stereophonic audio that radiates evenly in all directions.

Unlike most portable speakers, BOOM 3 gives your music a deep, rich bass texture that’s true to your music. Without exaggeration or distortion.

BOOM 3 is purpose built to handle life’s thrills and spills. It’s passed more than 25 seriously tough durability tests, including thousands of button pushes, 100s of tumbles, multiple drop tests, and more.

BOOM 3 runs on the same battery technology as some electric cars. BOOM 3 will stay powered and pumping tunes for 15 hours on a single charge. 

BOOM 3 was born to get wet and is completely waterproof. Boasting an insane IP67 water and dustproof rating, it can be totally submerged in water for up to 30 minutes. When it pops back to the surface–because it floats too–it will still be booming loud and proud.
