Interview: Logitech Senior VP Rory Dooley Talks UE BOOM
Rory Dooley, Senior Vice President of Music at Logitech UE, is in town talking up the UE BOOM, Ultimate Ears’ wireless speaker that makes your music both portable and social, and he sat down to tell us all about how this brand spankin’ new gadget is going to change our lives.
Dooley talks about going to the USA from Ireland for the first time in 1984 and accidentally finding himself working for Logitech, the parent company of Ultimate Ears, leading his career to where it is now. He’s clearly passionate about music and the way consumption of music has changed with advances in technology, explaining where the inspiration for a more social music experience came from.
The UE BOOM has 360-degree sound and a 15-hour rechargeable battery encased in a specially developed acoustic skin, as well as being compatible to wirelessly connect with other UE BOOMS through a free app, so we think it’s pretty safe to say this new slice of technology is going to be become a staple of your summer.
