Skrillex has teamed up with Ultimate Ears to design a limited edition UE BOOM it has been announced.
The Grammy award-winning electronic dance music producer has contributed his own hand drawn images which cover the limited edition UE BOOM. The new UE BOOM combines Skrillex’s visual style with the award-winning music technology.
“UE BOOM is awesome because it’s small, portable and powerful,” Skrillex said. “They get so loud! I listen to them all the time on tour – from the bus to backstage. They’re the best little speakers you can get, which is why I’m pumped to have my own artwork covering a custom edition.”
Introduced in 2013, UE BOOM has won four prestigious design awards. The UE BOOM has a cylindrical shape that blasts bold 360-degree sound, and it features a water and stain-resistant acoustic skin and up to 15 hours of battery life.
“Skrillex has been a disruptive force in the EDM evolution, changing people’s expectations of and experiences with music,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “UE is thrilled to work with an artist as notable as Skrillex to bring people their music in an exciting – and expressive – package. Skrillex finds inspiration in the combination of music, people and technology, and this collaboration is a natural fit for our brand.”
The Skrillex Edition UE BOOM is expected to be available in the UK and in select countries in Europe starting in November 2014 for a suggested retail price of £169.99. For more information, please visit www.ultimateears.com or www.skrillex.com.
