The UE MegaBlast is a portable, fully waterproof Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker that has Amazon's Alexa voice assistant built in. It sounds very good for its compact size, is durable and offers strong battery life.. While it's expensive and still a work in progress, UE's Megablast speaker is the best-sounding portable Alexa-enabled speaker out there right now.
If you want to take Alexa on the go, the UE Megablast is one of the biggest, most powerful smart speakers you can tote and expose to the elements without worry.
The Megablast is a bodaciously loud Bluetooth speaker with some tagged-on smart functionality.
Ultimate Ears returns with another explosive duo of speakers, this time with Alexa. Amazingly durable and waterproof speakers with world-class audio (especially the Megablast). Battery life is a great 12-16 hours. Alexa works as advertised. The speakers seamlessly update themselves with new features while you’re asleep.
The Ultimate Ears app isn’t the best, and since Alexa requires Wi-Fi to work, you may not find much use for it outside the home. The high price tag means you can find cheaper alternatives if you’re willing to shed Alexa or portability.
Play your favorite music with this Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST wireless speaker. It lets you make voice commands via Amazon Alexa within its 330-foot Wi-Fi range, and Bluetooth connectivity lets it pair with up to eight compatible devices. This rugged, water-resistant Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST wireless speaker withstands drops from up to 3 feet high.
