Ultimate Ears has released new updates for MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers just in time for summer. These portable speakers keep getting better and smarter.
The features of these speakers include:
- Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capable
- Enhanced controls on the Ultimate Ears app that allows you to sync with Alexa to crank up the volume
- Two 25mm tweeters
- Battery check through either Alexa or directly on the volume buttons of the speakers with up to 16 hours of charge
- The ability to personalize your play list or genre with the custom equalizer
- Multiple microphones with beam forming technology and noise cancellation
- Water-resistant and dust proof design
- New Features Coming Soon
The newest features of the MEGABLAST and BLAST include music from Spotify by asking Alexa to “play my discover weekly”. Spotify will soon be joining additional Amazon supported streaming services, such as Deezer, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Sirius XM so you can have a wide range of genres available for your personal or entertainment needs. The streaming is controlled via Wi-Fi enabled Bluetooth.
To make the experience even better, I will be able to integrate the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST with Spotify Connect through the app on my Smartphone. I’ll be able to stream the highest quality sound possible, text message, and make calls without interrupting the music, all while saving the battery on my phone.
I will soon be able to put up to 8 MEGABLAST and BLAST speakers in a stereo mode grouping all operating via Wi-Fi. This is going to be awesome for setting up the speakers in the backyard for optimal sound when we entertain.
