(Pocket-lint) - Ultimate Ears has gone all out with its latest "portable" Bluetooth speaker, it has created a monster designed for parties with six times the bass levels of its already impressive Megaboom 3.

The UE Hyperboom is a modest 360-degree Bluetooth speaker in the same way the Empire State Building is a semi-detached bungalow in the Cotswolds. It comes with two 4.5-inch woofers, two 1-inch tweeters and two 3.5-inch passive radiators.

It is IPX4 rated and has a rechargeable battery inside that is capable of running for up to 24-hours between charges.

Bluetooth is on board, naturally, but with two sources able to connect at once - switchable at the touch of a button. There are also 3.5mm auxiliary and an optical audio inputs for non-wireless sources.

The Hyperboom is capable of automatically adjusting the sound signature depending on your location - say, the garden - through its adaptive EQ mode. And, you can even charge your phone from the speaker's USB port.
