EarFun was established in 2018 by an experienced group of industrial designers, acoustic engineers, and music enthusiasts who shared the goal of creating next-generation wireless audio devices. The EarFun team is driven by a passion for music and a commitment to delivering solutions that use the latest technology to improve sound for audio products.
What began as a passion project from those audio industry veterans has become a committed reality as EarFun enters as a new face in the wireless audio game, and for a good reason. The startup is releasing its first speaker dubbed the UBOOM, a wireless portable Bluetooth speaker containing audiophile-grade components inside an omnidirectional standup format. From first glance, there’s a clear marriage between design and functionality. The 360-degree speaker includes a pair of 45mm drivers with advanced DSP technology covered by the IPX7-certified tarpaulin. Early impressions of sound have all been quality: fantastic clarity, clean bass, and virtually zero distortion at high volumes. Further signs of portability are evident with the hanging strap, in addition to its compactness.
The most gratifying feature of the UBOOM is the adoption of the TWS (True Wireless Stereo) function, typically found in more expensive categories. Using a single device, two UBOOM speakers can be configured as right and left channels, enhancing the presence and volume of the music in stereo playback. Battery life tests display a consistent 16 hours of playback time from the pair of embedded 2200 mAH batteries, which can be recharged in a snappy 4 hours using the provided USB-C cable.
The UBOOM uses advanced Bluetooth 5.0 to connect to wireless devices for up to 100ft of connectivity while still offering a proper auxiliary jack for wired connection to non-Bluetooth devices or those who hold the preference.
The EarFun UBOOM is available now on Amazon at a suggested price of $59.99, and can be shipped anywhere in the U.S.
