You know how it is like. When a product becomes a norm, you kinda get a little too nonchalant about the product’s design. Like there is a sudden revelation that everything looks the same. Such is a problem that plagues Bluetooth speakers too. That said, how do an audio equipment maker stand out from the competitions? Well, for Logitech-owned Ultimate Ears, it is letting us, the consumers, dictates how the device looked by customizing the appearance.
Everything from the fabric, color, and patterns for the different parts of the speaker such as the caps, hang loops, and even volume buttons, can be customized. At least it is with the company’s BOOM 3 Bluetooth speaker. If you so desire, you can even add your name or whatever fun text on the speaker – laser etched into the speaker spine, no less – to make it your own, or to make a truly personalized gift for one special person. And the ‘place’ to do it is through myBOOM studio, or at select T-Mobile store locations in Chicago and Miami.
Ultimate Ears myBOOM 3 portable Bluetooth speaker, as it is called, is available to the U.S. market now and it is expected to make its way to the global markets this summer. Anywho, to get started, all you have to do is start designing your dream look in myBOOM studio, choosing from fabric designs like Jungle Bell, NY Kitty or Frozen Kingdom, and more. As of now, there are 12 fabrics and 8 color options for the caps, spine, loop and volume buttons to choose from. Logitech said more colors and fabrics will be made available over time.
Beyond the cosmetics, the Ultimate Ears myBOOM 3 portable Bluetooth speaker is the BOOM 3 you have come to know, featuring 360 degree sound, deep bass, Magic Button, compatibility with the POWER UP charging dock and IP67 rated for dust- and water resistance. Plus, it also works with PartyUP to enable pairing with up to 150 of any generation BOOM or MEGABOOM speaker for some serious party sounds. However, such personalization does come with a price. Specifically, the myBOOM 3 is costlier at $179.99, which is 30 dollars more over the standard BOOM 3.
But I guess you can’t put a price of individuality, can you? More so when you found out that how rad a customized BOOM 3 looks. I am totally sold. Not going to lie.
