"And with a battery life of up to 12 hours for Blast and 16 hours for Megablast, you can take these portable speakers everywhere and enjoy great sound all day". The Blast will retail for $229.99, the Megablast for $299.99, and the Power Up for $39.99.
Ultimate Ears General Manager, Charlotte Johs said: "With Blast and Megablast, we brought together everything that our fans loved about our Bluetooth speakers - unbelievable sound quality, waterproof, ready-for-anything design - and upped the ante with Wi-Fi and far-field voice recognition with Amazon Alexa".
Ultimate Ears is joining the steadily growing ranks of voice assistant-equipped speaker manufacturers with the new Blast and Megablast Bluetooth speakers, which feature the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. For US customers, the speakers are available in Graphite (Black), Blizzard (White), Merlot (Red) and Blue Steel (Blue). They also use microphones for that hands-free voice control, via Alexa. Over WiFi, you are looking at range of 330 feet, along with 150 feet over Bluetooth. That means you get a hefty 93 dBC but a more powerful mid-range, deeper bass and clearer reproduction of vocals and instruments.
Ultimate Ears says that MEGABLAST is its most powerful and best sounding speaker to date.
The Megablast uses two 25mm tweeters, two 55mm active drivers and two 85mm x 50mm passive radiators.
The Blast features two 35mm active drivers and two 81-by-39mm passive radiators in a 1.4-pound cylindrical frame. Support for Pandora and Deezer will be added in the future. The speaker does come with a free three month subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited (when bought before Jan 2018) however, meaning millions of tracks at your fingertips - or the tip of your tongue, rather.
Along with being able to access more than 25,000 different skills to do everything from ordering a pizza to turning off your lights, it can also provide handsfree music control for Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. From lighting and heating to cooking and cleaning, Alexa is one of the most widely-connected smart assistants.
The Ultimate Ear Blast is, as the more affordable option, priced at £200 here in the UK.
These new models are about half an inch taller than their counterparts, and the Megablast jumps up considerably in weight, gaining almost a pound.
The new Blast speakers can also utilise a "Power Up" dock, which recharges the speakers simply by placing them on a home base - thereby, enabling the portable speakers to also function as an at-home speaker, with little added fuss. The Power Up is a wireless charging dock, so it's incredibly easy to move them from room to room or grab for the road - switching over to Bluetooth, of course.
