Go purple with the Ultimate Ears Boom for HopeLine speaker
This month is National Domestic Violence Awareness month and Verizon Wireless is donating money for the cause. You can help contribute to the cause by buying products like the Ultimate Ears Boom Bluetooth speaker or other items from Verizon’s HopeLine.
The latest Ultimate Ears Boom speaker pumps amazing sound from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth or wired connection; which ever is more convenient. This speaker has incredible battery life too! UE Boom can playback audio for up to 15 hours non-stop on a single charge. With improved wireless connectivity your phone can be 100 feet away and still send audio through the amazing 360 degree speaker tube. I’m too afraid to put my demo unit to the challenge, but the tech specs say that this speaker can be submerged for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water or less.
I wish I could have demo’d two UE’s speakers at once, because with two speakers on hand one can pair them together for a stereo sound where one speaker plays the left audio and the other plays the right audio; like it sounds when you have headphones in. Or you can split the speakers and use them to stream the same music to different areas at your party or in your house.
If you go to your nearest Verizon Wireless store this week ask if they have the UE Boom speaker in purple! Your purchase of anything from the HopeLine collection will help victims of domestic violence as Verizon will donate $1 for every product from the special line sold. These products are exclusively made in purple and won’t be on shelves much longer.
If you’re not in the market for a new Bluetooth speaker, but would still like to help the cause you can donate old cell phones, chargers and accessories, from any carrier, at a Verizon store to help HopeLine support victims and survivors of domestic violence.
To date, the HopeLine program has:
Collected more than 11.4 million phones
Donated more than 190,000 phones
