expired$63 gets you one of the best summer Bluetooth speakers – UE Boom refurb in Red at Amazon (orig $200)

Update: Now Red/Pink is available for $58.50 Prime shipped for July 5th.

You won’t be pumping the tunes on the 4th of July but one of the best summer speakers is now the lowest price we’ve ever seen at Amazon. The UE Boom is pairable with other UE Booms, is waterproof/”lifeproof”, and can last up to 15 hours on a charge. We love them and for $62.79 shipped, it ventures well into no brainer territory. This one is sold/manufactured by Ultimate Ears and comes with a 90 day warranty so you know it is legit. Also available in Red/White for a few bucks more.

Need to really crank out some sound? UE Megaboom refurb is $160 at Ebay.

Verizon wireless has the Logitech UE Mini Boom for only $79.99 shipped as their “Accessory of the Month” for all of October. That’s $20 off the regular price and the best offer we could find. We gave it rave reviews at 9to5mac giving its benefits over its predecessor:

So what’s different?

1. The whole internal structure has changed to optimize the type of sound the Ultimate Ears group wanted to provide.

2. It is both louder and crisper at higher volumes as well. It is another class…to quote Spinal Tap, they’ve gone to 11 and further. As you can see in the video – the sound of the Boom at 1/3 is what the Box didn’t hit until 2/3rd of the way.

3. It has the same pairing capabilities as the more expensive, full sized Ultimate Ears Boom speaker (see video) to make stereo sound and improve the volume some more. Left/Right sound separation are a big deal here.

4. The Bluetooth range has now increased up to 50 feet from 33 which is a result of improved antenna design and power. Interesting note: The second speaker can be even further because it pairs with the first speaker, not the phone.

The UE Boom lets you pair two devices at once (the speaker remembers the last eight connected devices). You can stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth from up to 50 feet away with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 10 hours. expand full story

UE Boom Stories July 7, 2014

Today, Ultimate Ears has announced that its well regarded UE Boom Bluetooth speaker has won a 2014 Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (ISDA). Sitting atop the entertainment category, this marks the very first IDEA for Ultimate Ears as a brand but the fourth design award for the UE BOOM itself. The award is given out to excellence in product design, sustainability, packaging, concept and more. Today’s announcement points out that only 27 of the 2,000 entries received a Gold IDEA this year.

The popular Bluetooth speaker has also received great user reviews and has recently seen a $20 price drop on Amazon, Best Buy and the official UE site. While we have seen the unit for less, they rarely go on sale and not usually with all the color options available. Apple.com is still charging $199.95. Outside of pre-owned options and sketchy retailers, this is the current lowest price available.

The BOOM is designed to “change standard one-directional sound,” with a 360-degree experience that blasts sound out in every direction. It also features a 50 foot range to wirelessly change songs, adjust the volume and take phone calls. You’ll find 15 hours of battery life and the possibility of linking two of them together via the UE BOOM mobile app. For a complete rundown, head over to our review of the Logitech UE Boom and Mini Boom.

Silver and Bronze IDEA winners in the entertainment category included the NOOK Glow Light, Beats Studio Headphones, Jambox Mini and more. You can see the rest of this year’s winners on the official IDSA site.
