Ultimate Ears Outs WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection

Published

on

Ultimate Ears has launched the new WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection, the latest lineup to join the Ultimate Ears family of portable, waterproof, go-anywhere speakers. Announced today, this collection of pint-sized, portable Bluetooth speakers, with surprisingly big sound, are decked out in five designs to match every vibe: Concrete, Avocado, Patches, Raspberry and Unicorn.


WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection is an ultimate mashup of music necessity and fashion accessory. Inspired by global music and fashion trends, the fashion-forward colors of the collection include:

  • Concrete: Your look is everyday neutral but never basic. Concrete is inspired by urban texture, paint splashes and shadows.
  • Avocado: Your style is subtle and understated. With Avocado, you’re always ready to “guac” and roll.
  • Patches: You wear your heart on your sleeve and plaster your personality through patches and pins. Patches is a punch of personality to denim.
  • Raspberry: You’re never afraid to go bold. Raspberry is fresh, hot and juicy.
  • Unicorn: Magic is your middle name. Unicorn is a delightful color melt of pastels.

In launching the Freestyle collection, from March 18 – 22, 2018, Ultimate Ears takes its portable wireless speakers to the slopes of Tignes, France as the official name sponsor of the Freestyle Tour. This World Cup Final event showcases the greatest stars of superpipe as they compete for a Crystal Globe. The partnership underlines a shared passion of authenticity as skiing ‘freestyle’ is an athletic art of expression that is both bold, captivating and original.

“The new collection is all about expressing yourself,” said Charlotte Johs, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “You curate your playlist and personal style – why not have a speaker that reflects that style too? WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection gives you big sound and the freedom to express your style in a trendy, tough and tiny speaker.”

WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection complements the existing line of award-winning WONDERBOOM speakers, boasting the same crisp 360-degree sound with balanced bass. Waterproof and worry-proof, WONDERBOOM is IPX7 rated (so it can be immersed in water up to one meter for up to 30 minutes), drop-proof from up to five feet, floats on its own and sports a hanging loop so it can be easily attached to any bag.

With up to 10-hour battery life and 100-foot wireless Bluetooth range, WONDERBOOM is the perfect companion for the shower, beach, music festival or pool party. The Ultimate Ears button on the top of the speaker lets you play, pause, skip and double up two WONDERBOOM speakers for double the fun.

WONDERBOOM received a 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award, presented to the most innovative industrial, product and graphic designs by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle Collection will be available at major retailers from February 26, 2018 from AED 419.

Review: ROG Cetra True Wireless ANC Gaming Earbuds

Published

on

Here at Gadget Voize, we have reviewed a wide range of true wireless stereo earbuds, including a few advertised as gaming earbuds. ROG’s Cetra True Wireless ANC Earbuds are also gaming earbuds that promise low-latency connectivity, a 27-hour battery life, wireless charging, and hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).

As soon as we opened the packages, we were impressed with the design and build quality of the ROG Cetra True Wireless ANC Gaming Earbuds. Inside the package, we get a clamshell-style matte black charging case, with a ROG logo on it. Open the case and you are greeted by an RGB-lit ROG logo and earbuds along with an LED on the lip of the charging case.

The opening and closing mechanism of the charging case is quite smooth. The earbuds themselves are quite lightweight and well-designed. They have an angular design with a silver ROG logo on each of them. There is also a small LED lining that displays the connection status of the earbuds. The earbuds also offer touch controls.

So, on the left earbud, if you Double press, it will shift through different modes such as Heavy ANC, Light ANC, Ambient mode, and ANC off. And if you press and hold the left earbud for 1 second, you will activate the voice assistant.

Similarly, single pressing the right earbud will play and pause the current song, while double pressing will skip to the next song. Triple pressing the right earbud will skip backwards while pressing and holding the right earbud for 1 sec will activate the gaming mode.

Inside the box, you also get a USB Type-C charging cable, the quick start guide, and two extra sets of ear tips. The earbuds fit quite snuggly into the ears and are very lightweight – so wearing them for an extended period won’t be an issue.

The charging case supports wireless charging, too. You also get IPX4 splash resistance and support for EQ/virtual 7.1 via the Armoury Crate app. The earbuds support low-latency wireless audio, with the gaming mode offering greater synchronisation of audio with video during a competitive gaming session.

The earbuds support Hybrid ANC technology, which detects and filters out the noise coming from inside and outside the earbuds, enabling an immersive audio experience. As mentioned before, the earbuds along with the charging case, feature 27-hour battery life with support for quick-charge technology. This means, that with ANC off, you get up to 5.5 hours of use on a single charge, with up to 21.5 hours of extra battery life provided by the charging case.

A special mention about the Armoury Crate app – it is possibly one of the best-designed earbud control apps we have seen in recent times. The app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices, allows you to maximise the audio performance and enjoy intuitive control over gaming mode, EQs, and virtual surround sound.

The performance of the earbuds is very good. The Heavy ANC setting did a good job of blocking out noisy environments, while the lighter option allowed a little ambient noise through if you wanted a degree of awareness of what’s going on around you. The Audio output was detailed without any distortion. The earbuds were wonderfully agile – it did not matter if we used them for gaming or for listening to music, the audio quality was on point and consistent.

During our tests, we clocked around 5 hours of listening time before the earbuds needed recharge from the charging case. And if you do run out of battery completely, you can get around an hour’s worth of battery life in just a 10-minute charge. And the fact that the charging case supports wireless charging, is an added bonus.

The ROG Cetra True Wireless ANC Gaming Earbuds come in at an attractive price point of $125 (AED 460 approx.). The earbuds offer very good audio quality, excellent battery life, a bunch of gaming focussed features, a very good app, and more. Thus, you really can’t go wrong with the ASUS ROG Cetra True Wireless ANC Gaming Earbuds.

Price: $125
