Ultimate Ears BLAST Bluetooth Wi-Fi Waterproof Portable Speaker with Alexa Voice Recognition & Control, Black
The Ultimate Ears BLAST is a super-styled, tough, great-sounding portable speaker with easy voice control thanks to Amazon's Alexa. With Wi-Fi built in you can stream music from online music services, with just your voice. Or play music wirelessly direct from your smart device with Bluetooth. It's waterproof, drop-proof and built to last so take this powerful music player with you, and control it hands-free.
UE BLAST has been designed to drop bold immersive sound in every direction. Enjoy immersive 360° audio from a speaker array of two 35mm active drivers and two 81mm passive radiators. And it packs serious sound for its size, cranking up to a maximum 90dB level volume.
Voice Control with Amazon Alexa
Just say it to play it. With Amazon's Alexa fully integrated you can play music from streaming services like Spotify, Amazon Music, TuneIn and more*. Control the volume, ask questions, or even order a takeaway. And it's all hands-free, just say "Alexa..." to start. Multiple microphones with beam-forming technology and noise cancellation ensure far-field voice recognition. You can even take calls without killing the music whenever connected to Wi-Fi (or a mobile hotspot, charges may apply).
With Bluetooth connectivity, you can use your mobile phone, tablet or any other Bluetooth device to play content wirelessly across a 45 metre range. It'll pair with up to 8 separate Bluetooth devices for easy streaming and a choice of playlists. Once connected to your phone you can take hands-free calls too. Download the Ultimate Ears app (available on iOS and Android) onto your smart device to unlock even more cool features.
Built to Blast
The BLAST is built for rugged outdoor use. Seriously waterproof, it's IP67 rated so it can stay in liquid up to a metre deep for up to 30 minutes. It's dust-proof and drop-proof too so you can take it anywhere – to the park, the pool, or the beach, and not worry about chucking it about with your crew.
Completely portable, the BLAST will last for up to 12 hours before needing a recharge (via the included USB cable). So you have confidence it'll outlast the party.

About Ultimate Ears
Company founder, Jerry Harvey, revolutionised the way musicians perform on stage with his custom-fit earphones. In 1995, when he was Van Halen’s touring monitor engineer, he responded to Alex Van Halen’s complaint that he couldn’t hear the others on stage with this innovative headphone build. They loved it so much that Harvey crafted more sets which they snapped up immediately. After a few years, his customers included The Rolling Stones, Faith Hill and Enrique Iglesias.
Since then, Ultimate Ears has continued to grow its fine brand of aurally-robust products. So much so that the company was bought by Logitech in 2008 before they made a fruitful foray into the wireless speaker market. Their clever 360° Bluetooth speakers change the way you listen to music with their Smart functionality, graspable shape and pumping sound.
