SONIC BOOM

Wire­less sum­mer sounds just got an up­grade

Where Boston - - WHERE NOW -

IN THE OLD DAYS, tak­ing your sounds to the beach—or even to the end of your yard for a bar­be­cue—usu­ally in­volved a beat box the size of a small car, an ar­gu­ment over who for­got to pack the spare bat­ter­ies and the in­evitable un­spool­ing of chewed-up tape from your fa­vorite mix cas­sette. Thank­fully, all of that is a thing of the past. The mar­ket for high qual­ity, por­ta­ble Blue­tooth speak­ers is hot­ter than July, and one of the stand­outs is with­out doubt the UE Won­der­boom, whose check­list of specs is truly im­pres­sive: 360-de­gree sound; drop-proof from up to five feet; 100-feet wire­less range; 10-hour bat­tery life. Oh, and it’s wa­ter­proof too. We like the Fire­ball red model while grilling; the Sub­Zero blue ver­sion for pool-groovin’. From $99, avail­able at ul­ti­ma­teears.com and the Ap­ple Store. 815 Boyl­ston St., 617.385.9400.
