Ultimate Ears (now owned by Logitech) has found great success in the marketplace with its "Boom" series of Bluetooth speakers, a modest tube about the size of your typical energy-drink can, that puts out sufficient volume to provide a wireless soundtrack of music for an intimate gathering, or double as an on-the-fly conference call speaker. Sometimes, however, you need to go large, and for that the company offers the Megaboom, a bigger speaker that offers even more volume for when you need more people to hear the music. How big is too big for a speaker like this? How loud is too loud? We had a listen to the Megaboom and rated its highs and lows in our review.
Ultimate Ears is adding another resilient speaker to its range, this time in a form that is much easier to carry around. While its stablemates, the UE Boom and UE Megaboom, all offer high-quality sound in a water-resistant cylindrical shape, the UE Roll takes a different approach, shrinking down the design to a UFO-shaped disc measuring 135mmx40mm (5.3 inches by 1.6 inches) and weighing 330 grams (11.6 ounces), complete with the signature oversized plus and minus controls on the top surface.
Logitech-owned Ultimate Ears has announced a new Bluetooth speaker, the UE Megaboom. The design is based on the original Boom -- which likewise aims sound in a 360-degree arc -- but is substantially larger. It should last up to 20 hours on a single charge, and UE is promising a 100-foot range, well beyond most Bluetooth devices, which are typically limited to about 30 feet. By comparison, the original Boom has a 15-hour battery, and a 50-foot range.
This next prize, we are sure, nearly anybody would be very thankful to receive. Last week, Ultimate Ears released the latest addition to their lineup, the custom-designed Skrillex Edition UE Boom. Ultimate Ears teamed up with Skrillex and asked him to create custom artwork for their award-winning Boom speaker. What they created is a speaker that combines high-end sound quality with a twist of rave-culture style.
Motu has announced the release of its new HDX-SDI video interface with Thunderbolt technology. Offering a HD/SD video production workstation for any Thunderbolt-equipped Mac (or PC), its I/O technology supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data services though a single port. Users can connect any video source to the HDX-SDI, with best image quality derived from uncompressed video capture.
Logitech is bolstering its new Ultimate Ears range with four different headphones: one in-ear option and three headsets. Of the three can-style headphones, the UE 9000 boasts the highest price tag. Able to be folded flat like a pair of sunglasses, the headphones can take advantage of being both wireless through Bluetooth connectivity and its 10-hour battery, and through an optional cable connection.
Logitech has provided details of three portable speakers for its new Ultimate Ears range. The UE Boombox and UE Mobile Boombox both allow for audio streaming through Bluetooth from up to 50 feet away. Up to eight mobile devices can be paired with the speakers, while three can be connected at the same time to the Boombox, two to the Mobile, allowing multiple users to take turns playing music. Battery life is claimed to be up to six hours for the main version, and ten for the Mobile.
Ultimate Ears today unveiled its 100 series noise-isolating earphones. They have been given a highly individualized flavor with each of the five models inspired by one of five different musical genres. Providing up to 24dBs of passive noise isolation, they also come with four sizes of ear cushions designed to provide a comfortable fit.
Logitech's audio group Ultimate Ears has teamed up with EMI MusicíCapitol Studios to release the first custom In-Ear Reference Monitors. The headphones are said to have a flat response curve that's natural and dimensional when reproducing sound. Made for professional studio engineers and producers, they provide 32dB of noise isolation when made with an optional soft silicone material or 26dB in the acrylic housing.
Logitech's audio label Ultimate Ears has released a new lineup of earphones and headsets for mobile devices. The earphones include the Ultimate Ears 500, Ultimate Ears 350 and Ultimate Ears 200. There are also the Ultimate Ears 500vi and Ultimate Ears 200vi headsets for iPhones, BlackBerry phones and any other devices with a 3.5mm audio jack.

Pictures of Galaxy S7, Edge leaked
New images have been leaked of Samsung's new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The images of the Galaxy S7 are very similar to a draft leaked earlier this year, with a curved back reminiscent of the iPhone 3G with the normal Samsung camera hump in the upper center of the phone. The picture of the Galaxy S7 Edge as leaked is running a benchmark application showing modest improvements over the S6 line, if accurate. Both models are expected to be formally announced in a February 21 press event hosted by Samsung. http://bit.ly/20Gf07X
