Ultimate Ears Blast and MegaBlast Smart Portable Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Speakers and Bluetooth Speaker with Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant at Best Buy

With two teenaged boys in the house, we visit Best Buy often. Checking out new technology is something both boys and I have in common so none of us mind popping in store or online to see what’s new (or on sale). We’ve been shopping for a new device with Amazon Alexa that had amazing sound and we discovered the Ultimate Ears brand Blast and MegaBlast portable speakers.

We love having music available throughout the house and outside. Ultimate Ears has added some new updates and I was super excited to see that later this year you’ll be able to group up to eight MegaBlast and Blast speakers on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Especially when we’re doing our favorite chore (cleaning the house) I want to be able to have the same music playing throughout the house and into the yard! The boys love Spotify so they’re excited that  MegaBlast and Blast will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect. When on Wi-Fi you’ll be able to open the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to the speakers (under “Devices Available”) without the need to pair through Bluetooth.

It’s important to us when buying new tech for the house that they stay up to date so knowing that Ultimate Ears is committed to adding these updates makes us interested in them that much more! Here are some other updates coming soon:

  • 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.
