I love having great music playing around me all the time. When I am working from home I always have music going in the background. With the beautiful weather, we have been having I have been spending more time outside which means I need a way to bring my favorite music out with me. I was so excited to learn about the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST Portable Speakers at Best Buy. I am sure you are not surprised that I love Best Buy and find myself looking for fun new tech all the time on Bestbuy.com.
With the new house, I want to make sure that I have the best tech possible that enhances our lives and makes us truly enjoy the space we are living in. What I really like about these Ultimate Ears speakers is they are portable and wireless. I can set them up on the deck or in the backyard and have beautiful background music without having to find an outlet or move them around with me. They are Bluetooth connected to my phone so I can switch up the music anytime I want to while enjoying the summer weather.
These would also work great for a party or event. Soon you will be able to sync them together to play your favorite music. Imagine setting up a wedding or party and having 8 of these speakers spread around the room synced together playing the best dance music. That would be so cool and you wouldn’t have to stress about having giant speakers guests could walk into or trip over. At our wedding, we had these horrid giant speakers and I was so worried someone was going to dance right into one of them and knock them over causing a domino effect of people and speakers. Definitely not the vibe we were going for at our wedding.
Check out these amazing new updates to the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST Portable Speakers!
- 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.
