Music Lovers Will Love These Ultimate Ears Speakers!
If you love music like I do, then you will love, love, love the new Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers! These speakers really are the ultimate speakers. Charge this up and you have 16 hours of power! That’s all day at the beach!
This is the Ultimate Ears BLAST portable speaker. This speaker comes in red, blue, and black. You will enjoy 360 degrees of music and a water-proof, dust-proof design. The water-proof is rated IP67. Not that you would want to but if someone drops this in water you know you are safe!
Two 35mm active drivers and two 81mm x 39mm passive radiators provide crisp and clear sound. Stunning clarity and deep, heart-pounding bass, brings music to life. Along with Multiple microphones with beam forming technology and noise cancellation enable a smooth, far field voice recognition, and control experience.
The Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST is their most powerful speaker. With hands-free Amazon Alexa built in! You can now ask Alexa to play your favorite music, discover new music, crank up the volume, while still able to find a new restaurant that’s close by. Perfect for vacation in a condo, on a boat, or just hanging out at the park.
- Enhanced controls on the Ultimate Ears app: You can now control volume remotely from the app, which is especially useful if you have your music cranked up loud and want to use Alexa. You can also check battery status in two ways – either through the app, or right from the speaker by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously. Starting in May, you can personalize your sound for any artist or music genre with the custom equalizer (EQ).
- Voice control on Spotify and more (coming soon): Just ask “Alexa, play my Discover Weekly” or any music from Spotify on MEGABLAST and BLAST. Spotify will soon join other Amazon Alexa supported music services such as Amazon Music, Deezer and TuneIn globally; and Pandora, iHeartRadio and SiriusXM in the U.S. — use your voice to control music from these streaming services over Wi-Fi. On Bluetooth, you can enjoy music from any of your favorite music services.
- A better way to listen with Spotify Connect (coming soon): MEGABLAST and BLAST will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect. When on Wi-Fi, open the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to our speakers (under “Devices Available”) without the need to pair through Bluetooth. Music fans can also stream the highest quality sound possible from Spotify. With Spotify Connect, text message or make calls without interrupting the music and save your phone’s battery.
- New grouping experience for smart speakers (coming soon): You can group up to eight MEGABLAST and BLAST speakers on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Stereo mode is supported when you connect two MEGABLAST or BLAST speakers. Optimized to take advantage of the speakers’ built-in Wi-Fi capability, you will experience greater range for grouped speakers and improved connection reliability. Grouping is expected to be available later this year.
The Ultimate Ears Speakers are available at Best Buy!
