I still listen to all of the songs of my youth because they fill me with such happiness! That’s why I’m so excited about the new features of the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers. They are perfect for summer activities.
MEGABLAST is Ultimate Ears’ most powerful speaker. It has stunning clarity and deep, heart-pounding bass that you can really feel in your heart. It brings music to life! I love that there is hands-free Amazon Alexa built in and you can ask Alexa to blast music, discover new music, crank up the volume, or even find new restaurants. MEGABLAST is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capable and the Wi-Fi connection range for the speaker is 330′. The Bluetooth range is 150ft. There’s a rechargeable battery with up to 16 hours. You can play and charge the speaker simultaneously using the optional cradle or included wall charger.
BLAST blasts 360° intensely rich sound, with stunning clarity and deep, heart-pounding, soul-reaching bass that brings music to life. It has a water-resistant and dust-proof design and the IP67 rated speaker can be immersed in liquid up to 1m for up to 30 minutes. There are two 35mm active drivers alongside with two 81mm x 38mm passive radiators providing crisp and clear sound. There are multiple microphones with beam forming technology and noise cancellation to enable a smooth far field voice recognition and control experience. You can group up to 8 MEGABLAST and BLAST speakers on Bluetooth and Wi-fi!
The Ultimate Ears app has enhanced control – now you can control volume remotely from the app and that’s useful if you want to crank your music and use Alexa. Also, you can check battery status in 2 ways – through the app or right from the speaker by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously. Coming soon – voice control on Spotify and a better way to listen with Spotify Connect. In fact, MEGABLAST and BLAST will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect!
