Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST are soon getting Spotify Connect, grouping, and stereo mode

The Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST are good speakers overall, but there were two main areas in which we felt that they weren't quite up to snuff: pricing and features. The pricing concern has largely been alleviated, with some seriously good deals being offered on both models in the past few weeks, but we hadn't heard much on the feature front. Ultimate Ears has just announced that the BLAST and MEGABLAST will be getting Spotify Connect support, as well as some features it should have shipped with.

Right now on Amazon, you can get a great deal on an Ultimate Ears Megablast WiFi and Bluetooth speaker. On its own, the Megablast costs just $207, which is $93 less than the MSRP of $299.

[Deal Alert] Ultimate Ears BLAST with POWER UP dock down to $129.99 ($139.99 off) from Verizon

Ultimate Ears' new BLAST is a good speaker, but it's not without its flaws. One of its crucial flaws was its high price; at $229.99, the BLAST was more expensive than basically any of its competitors. However, recent discounts have made the price a lot more palatable, and this one from Verizon for $129.99 with the POWER UP dock included may be the best one yet.

[Deal Alert] UE BLAST only $99.99 for a $229.99 portable speaker ($130 off)

Ultimate Ears makes some really great portable speakers. One of their newest models is the UE BLAST, which was released earlier this year and which Richard reviewed last month, saying that it sounded great and could reach an "absurdly loud" volume. His main criticism was actually the speaker's price of $229.99, which, while arguably justified, is still a lot of money to put down for a portable speaker. Luckily, Amazon and Best Buy are selling the UE BLAST at a crazy discount today for only $99.99 — a whopping $130 less than its original price and almost half of what had previously been its best deal ever.

[Deal Alert] Ultimate Ears BLAST with POWER UP dock down to $179.99 ($90 off), MEGABLAST with dock down to $278.98 ($61 off)

We published our review on Ultimate Ears' BLAST and MEGABLAST exactly one month ago today. They're good speakers overall, but they're not without their caveats. One of the most major issues we found is the price; $229.99 for the BLAST and $299.99 for the MEGABLAST, plus another $39.99 for the definitely-needed POWER UP dock, is a lot of dough for an imperfect product in this category. Today, however, Amazon has brought the BLAST and POWER UP bundle's price down to a much more palatable $179.99. There's a $60 discount on a MEGABLAST-POWER UP bundle as well.

Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST review: Great sound comes at a price

Those in the market for a Bluetooth speaker in the $100-200 range will surely have heard of Ultimate Ears for the company's popular BOOM 2 and MEGABOOM speakers. But if you're looking for a newer, more premium alternative, Logitech/Ultimate Ears has come out with the BLAST and MEGABLAST - not replacements for the BOOM series, but upmarket stablemates.

The main talking points of these two new speakers concern Alexa integration and superior sound. The $229.99 BLAST and $299.99 MEGABLAST sound very good, and they can get seriously loud when cranked all the way up. The charging dock is a nice touch, but it costs an extra $40.

[Deal Alert] UE BOOM 2 now $99 (over 50% off) at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target

Ultimate Ears makes some of the best Bluetooth portable speakers around, and though they're a little on the expensive side, we usually think they're a good buy for anyone looking for a portable speaker that's capable of putting out some very respectable sound. One of those speakers is the UE BOOM 2, which sounded great when it first came out and can still hold its own against others on the market, despite having been launched a tad over 2 years ago now.

The MEGABOOM may no longer be Ultimate Ears' most powerful Bluetooth speaker, but it still packs plenty a punch. It's still one of our favorite speakers, and for good reason - it's great across the board. Now, you can pick one up in the interestingly-named 'Purpley' color for just $146.99, a whopping $153 off the MSRP, from Best Buy. This is the lowest price we've seen for a brand-new unit.

Ultimate Ears' current BOOM line of Bluetooth speakers features some of the most beloved Bluetooth speakers on the market. But if you were holding off on buying a BOOM or MEGABOOM because they don't have Amazon Alexa integration or WiFi and you maybe want some better sound, UE has the solution for you: the new BLAST and MEGABLAST.
