Music has the power to move and inspire, to influence both our emotions and our bodies. This has never been truer with Bluetooth speakers, as you can take and share your music with you wherever you go. But what if you could literally see the music pulsating out of your speaker? Wouldn’t that add an extra dimension to your listening pleasure? Now you can with the UB+ dB1 Doublebass.
It’s a high-end Bluetooth speaker with all the specs that come with it: Bluetooth 5.3, hi-fi sound, waterproofing and app control. But the visual element has to be seen to be believed…
Ace of bass
The dB1 Doublebass features a pair of 5.2-inch passive radiators three times larger than the speaker driver. Fire it up and you’ll see these twin passive radiators pulsing as they play the music. These symmetrical oscillations are the result of increased pressure from the loudspeaker. Not only does it look cool, making the dB1 Doublebass a showpiece you’ll want to show off to your friends, it also results in deep, resounding bass that really adds to the music.
But it’s not just about bass depth, it’s also about clarity. Because these symmetrical movements work together, they minimize the microphonic effects that cause audio distortion and unwanted noise, resulting in a cleaner, more solid sound.
Sphere of influence
The UB+ dB1 Doublebass (designed and engineered in Singapore) stands out even before you turn it on, thanks to its elegant spherical design. It’s a look as natural as the planet we inhabit, one that allows the speaker to take center stage on a desk at home as well as on a shelf.
But this design is not purely for aesthetic purposes – UB+ also chose it for functional reasons.
Because its shape is perfectly symmetrical from all angles, all points from the center are the same size, giving it an innate ability to amplify sound across a wide spectrum of the soundscape with perfectly balanced balance and no distortion. Sound waves bounce most evenly from a spherical shape, giving audio reproduction a purity and clarity sure to delight fans of all music genres.
The passive radiators are accompanied by a 90mm custom woofer and 35mm silk dome tweeter, delivering 60W of power, while the ultra-wide frequency range of 40Hz – 20kHz caters to all kinds of music styles.
Through the UB+Seek app, you can wirelessly connect the dB1 Doublebass to up to eight devices, including smartphones, tablets, TVs, projectors, laptops, and virtually anything that uses Bluetooth. You can even pair it with up to eight other UB+ speakers, giving you a much more powerful sound. And because it uses Bluetooth 5.3, it has a longer range and a more robust wireless connection, so you can listen undisturbed.
Want to go really detailed? Easily adjust the sound yourself with the intuitive UB+ Seek app. You can adjust the equalizer just the way you like to personalize the audio and set up sound profiles for each room and device. It’s a Bluetooth speaker that’s as personal as you are.
Always with you
While the machined polycarbonate frame of the dB1 Doublebass will suit the home or office, it is equally suitable for listening on the go. The soft leather handle combined with the light weight make it perfect to take with you, whether you’re going on a picnic, a day at the beach, a party at a friend’s house or just moving to another room in the house. It’s waterproof to IPX5, which means it can withstand a sustained jet of water, so you don’t have to worry if it starts to rain or if you spill water on it.
The battery lasts 20 hours before needing a recharge, giving most people a whole weekend of listening time. And with up to two weeks on standby, it’s ready for action when you need it.
The dB1 Doublebass comes in gloss white, gloss black and matte metallic gray and has an anodized aluminum stand. On-device control is carried out by the brushed aluminum rotary switch, while the Fibonacci pattern grille accentuates the sheer quality and level of detail of this UB+ flagship.
Wherever you take it and however you listen, the UB+ dB1 Doublebass is the Bluetooth speaker for the real music lover.
