Logitech subsidiary Ultimate Ears (UE) announced the MegaBoom Bluetooth speaker today. The UE MegaBoom has a similar design to the company’s first mobile speaker, the UE Boom, but is bigger and more powerful. It weighs less than two pounds, has a 100-foot wireless Bluetooth range, and promises battery life of 20 hours. Like its predecessor, the MegaBoom features a durable waterproof design, and you can pair it with a second unit for twice the beats.
The UE MegaBoom has a suggested retail price of $299.99, and is expected to launch later this month in the US, select European countries, and Asia.
