Ultimate Ears UE Boom Speaker Giveaway

UE Boom Speaker Giveaway

Ultimate Ears, a brand of Logitech, have created a pretty spectacular Bluetooth speaker called the UE Boom. I’m not just posting about this because its name happens to be Boom, I was sent one of them to test out and it’s become my go-to wireless speaker.

It’s loud as hell, and actually pretty heavy for its size, but that’s probably why the low end sounds pretty good on it. Anyways, I wouldn’t be giving one away to you unless it was a quality product. So who wants it?

*Edit – I actually have five(5) speakers to give away! So I’m extending the giveaway until end of day Monday.

If you wanna snag a speaker, leave a comment below with the name of the first song you’ll listen to, and where you’ll be when you’re blasting it.

(This giveaway is limited to North America.)
