Geek out over music and good sound quality? Like to do so without wires? If that sounds (pun intended) like you, you’ll want to check out the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers – they’re perfect for summer parties out in the backyard with the BBQ on the grill!
There are a few features I really wanted to highlight for you all with these products:
New grouping experience for smart speakers: So this feature is coming soon, and probably isn’t ideal for your office set up – but it will perfect for parties you have at your home or backyard this summer! 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, and we’ll keep you posted on when it becomes available! It’s also worth nothing on the MegaBlast that the
Wi-Fi connection range for the speaker is 330′. Bluetooth range is 150ft. That’s pretty impressive!
The Ultimate Ears app: When my friends are over, music is playing, but when someone comes to the door, or the phone rings, you need to be able to turn down the tunes for just a few – and now you can do that remotely with the app! You can also check battery status in two ways – either through the app, or right from the speaker by pressing the “+/-” volume buttons simultaneously. You can personalize your sound for any artist or music genre with the custom equalizer (EQ) on the app!
Spotify Connect: It’s not available just yet, but it is coming soon! MEGABLAST and BLAST will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect! So what does that mean? It means no going through the whole Bluetooth pairing process – when you’re on Wi-Fi, you can open up the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to the speakers. And you can also still use your phone for calls or text messages while streaming your music through the speaker without interruption!
