There are a lot of options for Bluetooth speakers, but some of the best are from Ultimate Ears. Three weeks ago I bought the Wonderboom speaker for my shower and can’t imagine a life sudsing up without it.
So when I signed on this morning to see that the limited edition Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 speaker is 63 percent off on Amazon, I added it to my shopping cart. Then I started writing this post.
I’m often excited by deals I spot on behalf of PopSci readers, but, frankly, this is one of the best I’ve seen in the last year. Buy it here.
The UE BOOM 2 provides a beefy 360-degree sound and deep bass tones. What’s more, with the PartyUp app, you can connect up to 50 UE speakers. I don’t know who would have that many speakers, but you can imagine how cool that would be at a mansion pool party or whatever. It’s also waterproof and shockproof, making it a good option for camping or a trip to the beach. The speaker also includes Siri and Google Now voice integration and can connect to Amazon Echo products, which allows for interactions with Alexa.
The UE BOOM 2 holds a 15-hour charge and there are four models to choose from: Deep Radiance, Origami, Panther, and Serendipity Blue. Before it sells out, get the speaker for $75. It’s usually $200.
