This week we have a fantastic giveaway designed by one of our friends, Australian artist Reka. Ultimate Ears just released a limited edition version of their UE BOOM 2 wireless speaker, adorned with Reka’s distinctive illustration.
The UE BOOM 2 is the follow-up Bluetooth speaker to Ultimate Ears’ 2013 UE Boom – a waterproof bluetooth speaker that made a big bang with its insane maximum volume and stellar battery life.
Sound quality on the UE BOOM 2 is impressive, at least by Bluetooth speaker standards. Bass levels are solid and pack a suitable punch. After playing with our UE BOOM 2 for a few days, the battery life is fairly awesome with up to 15 hours of music before needing to be recharged, and it means the speaker will happily last a full day in the park, or for a week of evening listening.
Reka’s style is inspired by pop culture, cartoons and illustrations, Reka spent more than a decade refining his emblematic aesthetic throughout Melbourne’s inner-suburb alleyways and train lines.
“UE BOOM 2 Lost Time Limited Edition refers to crucial moments of self-reflection, which remind me of being lost in the moment,” Reka said. “Similarly, music can often be an escape, allowing us to transcend time and space, which made this collaboration with Ultimate Ears a natural fit.”
Reka Lost Time Edition UE BOOM 2 retails for $199.99. As part of a special promotion, one lucky StreetArtNews winner will receive one of the speakers for free.
