[Deal Alert] UE BLAST down to just $90 ($90 off) for Best Buy members

Ultimate Ears released its latest duo of speakers, the BLAST and MEGABLAST, several months ago. We reviewed them and found that they sounded good, though they were expensive and lacking features that were found in the company's previous speakers. Since then, those features have been added and prices have fallen, making them a lot more appealing. Best Buy is currently offering the BLAST for only $89.99, $90 off the current list price and a whopping $140 off MSRP.

Dell is having a "Black Friday in July" sale. Technically, it's actually in Early Access phase, with the actual sale coming in about three days. We won't complain about the dumb name, though, because there are some great deals being offered here. Those include the Bose QC25 for $169, the Jaybird Freedom F5 for $50, and more.

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.

[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 those 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.
