Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day, the Ultimate Ears BLAST, is currently on sale for just $99, today only. This is a great price on the BLAST, considering it is its first price drop since debuting last year, and it is usually priced at $229. But this price is good today only, so you're going to want to pick it up before the price goes back up.
The Ultimate Ears BLAST is a newer version of the BOOM speaker from Ultimate Ears, while it has a new name, it does still have the same great audio quality. So you're getting some fantastic 360-degree audio out of this speaker here, which is definitely nice to see. There are some design differences here, it looks less rounded than the BOOM speakers. But that doesn't affect its performance at all. The BLAST speaker here has Amazon Alexa built-in, so you can ask Alexa to stream music on Google Play Music or Spotify, or really any other Alexa-compatible music service. You can also use Alexa to order pizza, ask how the weather is, and so much more. There are tens of thousands of Alexa skills available right now, with more coming all the time. Battery life here is still pretty good, even with Alexa always listening, at around 12 hours on a complete charge. Finally, the Ultimate Ears BLAST is waterproof, with a rating of IP67.
